Joe Mixon: Solid Yardage, Lacks Endzone Visit In Week 2 Loss

In a hard-fought battle against the Ravens, Joe Mixon, the 27-year-old workhorse for the Cincinnati Bengals, put up a respectable performance, but couldn't find the endzone in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact

Mixon carried the rock 13 times for 59 yards and added 4 receptions for 36 yards on 5 targets. Despite the Bengals' 27-24 loss, Mixon's versatility was on full display, showing his ability to contribute both on the ground and through the air. His longest rush of 14 yards and a 32-yard reception highlighted his big-play potential. However, the lack of touchdowns continues to be a concern for Mixon's fantasy managers. Currently ranked as RB18 for the week and RB20 for the season, Mixon's value remains steady, but his managers will be hoping for more scoring opportunities against the Rams in Week 3. His consistent volume and dual-threat ability keep him in the RB2 conversation, but the endzone drought needs to end for him to truly shine.
