Mixon was a major disappointment last season, but he has cut weight this off-season and is expected to be given the keys to a workhorse role in the Bengals' offense. We saw him go for 165 yards in the one game he touched the ball 25+ times, so the ceiling is clearly enourmous. With that said, Mixon comes with more risk than most third round picks.

Joe Mixon dropping weight

Geoff Hobson of is reporting that Joe Mixon reported to mini-camp at 225 pounds, down from the 238 pounds he came in at last year.

Fantasy Impact

He apparently wants to drop five more pounds, though he's been described as "svelte" where he is right now. While some running backs look to add weight when going into a workhorse role, Mixon is choosing to go the Le'Veon Bell route and lose weight. If you recall, Bell weighed in at 244 his rookie season, but then checked in at 224 for his sophomore campaign. He looked like a different running back with the weight-loss and we're expecting similar results from Mixon. He was already one of the best buy-lows in all of fantasy football and this definitely doesn't hurt. If the Bengals add another offensive lineman on Day 1 of the NFL Draft, Mixon could be looking at RB1 status in 2018.
