Yes, Mixon plays for a terrible team, but this offense should be quite good this season with the additions of Joe Burrow and Tee Higgins plus the return of both A.J. Green and John Ross from injury. You'd have to expect the return of Jonah Williams and an off-season focus on improving the offensive line will have a substantial impact too. But really what this comes down to is that Mixon has true 1.1 talent in an up-tempo offense like Zac Taylor wants to run. Mixon has the receiving chops to become a true three-down, game-script-proof bell-cow and in an improved offense, that could take him into the top two or three for the position.

Joe Mixon, Bengals have had a 'visit' to discuss a long-term deal

Bengals director of player personnel Duke Tobin says the team has "visited with" Joe Mixon about a long-term deal.

Fantasy Impact

It was reported back in April that Mixon is prepared to hold out this year if an extension isn't reached. "Joe’s obviously a guy that’s shown a lot of ability ... He’s in a year that he can be extended, and he is a guy that we visited with. We’ll go through those discussions and see if there is a fit or a match for a long-term contract with him" Tobin said. If the 23-year-old suits up for Cincinnati this season he should be a legitimate RB1 in what expects to be a greatly improved offense. This will be an important story to monitor this summer, for obvious reasons.
