The Bengals went much more run-heavy than usual with Finley under center, as Mixon racked-up a massive 30 carries in Week 10. That was the first time he'd totaled more than 19 carries in a game this season. The hope was that Mixon would be more involved in the passing game with Finley, but he tallied just two receptions and ran just 14 pass routes, though it was double that of Giovani Bernard (7). Over the first eight games, Bernard ran 134 routes to Mixon's 123. The Raiders have had the perception of being a bad run defense, though that's not the case this year. Sure, Melvin Gordon was able to post 108 yards and a touchdown, but that's just a small sample. On the year, the Raiders have allowed just 4.05 yards per carry and four rushing touchdowns, which are both below the league average. The reason their overall numbers are inflated are due to the five receiving touchdowns they've allowed. While some may view that as a weakness - it may be - there's been just two running backs who've totaled more than four receptions and none who've totaled more than 48 receiving yards. What that suggests is that the touchdowns are a bit fluky and due for regression. We can't assume that Mixon is heavily involved in the passing game just yet, though we've taken a step in the right direction. This isn't a must-avoid matchup, but it's also not as great of a matchup as some think. Mixon belongs in the high-end RB3 conversation.

Joe Mixon sees 30 carries

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon carried the ball 30 times for 114 yards in a 49-13 loss to the Ravens in Week 10. He also added two catches for 37 yards in the game.

Fantasy Impact

Mixon was used heavily with the Bengals attempting to protect rookie quarterback Ryan Finley in his first start. Mixon's 30 carries and 114 yards are both season highs. He will be an RB2 in Week 11 against Oakland.
