Mixon has been a volume monster. Despite zero touchdowns on his resume, he's the RB9 in fantasy. He's averaged 28 touches and 114 total yards with a 14.8% target share (eighth-best). His efficiency has been good in the passing game (14th in yards per route run) but mediocre as a rusher. He's 42nd in yards created per touch, 36th in breakaway run rate, and 57th in true yards per carry. Mixon should have another solid day against a plus matchup on the ground. The Jets are second-worst in explosive run rate while also ranking 14th-worst in rush EPA and 12th-worst in rushing yards allowed per game. New York is 22nd and 18th in second-level and open field yards allowed. When Mixon is targeted out of the backfield, he can create some big plays against a team that's 29th in DVOA against receiving backs. Mixon is a top-ten RB option in Week 3.

Joe Mixon runs for 57 yards in Week 2

Joe Mixon carried the ball 19 times for 57 yards and added 26 yards on three catches in a 20-17 loss to Dallas in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact

Mixon struggled to find much room to run, averaging just 3.0 yards per carry in the loss. The veteran tailback has been active in the passing game thus far in 2022, catching 10 of 13 targets through two games. Mixon will be a solid RB1 in Week 3 against a Jets defense that just coughed up three rushing touchdowns to Nick Chubb in Week 2.
