Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's scored just 16.2 half PPR points through two games, which is not what fantasy enthusiasts had in mind when they drafted him in the first round. The offensive line does have a few new parts and may take some time to gel, but the biggest concern with Mixon is that he's conceding a lot of passing-down work to Giovani Bernard. To this point, Mixon has run 44 routes, while Bernard has run 41 routes. With that being said, Mixon has totaled just six targets on 97 pass attempts by Burrow (6.2 percent target share) while Bernard has seen 12 targets. Teams have chosen to run the ball against the Eagles, as Washington and the Rams ran the ball on 54.7 percent of their plays. Their running backs amassed 55 carries and 204 yards with three rushing touchdowns over the last two weeks, and we can't pretend they have the most talented units or offensive lines. The problem here is gamescript with Mixon, as the Bengals are 6.5-point underdogs, which would not favor his role as the early-down back. He should still get goal-line touches against a team that's allowed 64 points in their first two games. Mixon should remain in lineups as a high-end RB2.If you didn't gauge the panic level of Chark's owner in your league this week, you're doing fantasy football wrong. He's the No. 1 receiver on this team and the flood gates are going to open soon. With Minshew using everyone on the field, it'll only take away the attention that Chark gets. This week will likely be a tough one to maintain his efficiency, but the Dolphins cornerback duo of Xavien Howard and Byron Jones haven't lived up to their reputation over the first two weeks. They allowed N'Keal Harry and Julian Edelman catch 10-of-13 balls for 96 yards (and almost a touchdown, had Harry not fumbled into the end zone), and then allowed Stefon Diggs and John Brown to rip them to shreds for 12 catches, 235 yards, and two touchdowns. It's likely due to the fact that their front seven isn't generating any pressure, leaving them out to dry in coverage. I'd like Chark more if he moved into the slot more than 17 percent of the time (his percentage to this point), as he'd evade the coverage of those two cornerbacks, but he's still talented enough to win. Because of that, he should be considered a high-end WR3 who should start seeing more targets. *Update* Byron Jones has been ruled out for this game, which is good news, but Chark himself is listed as a game-time decision with a chest injury. You'll want to check the inactive list right before Thursday night football.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
From a talent perspective, Mixon belongs in the conversation with the best of the best in the NFL. However, for fantasy football, he's not being utilized fully properly to be a top-tier option week in and week out. Even though Mixon saw four targets last week, he was game-scripted out for Gio Bernard eventually. Until Zac Taylor chooses to put the superior talent on the field for every situation, Mixon needs to be viewed as a low-end RB1/high-end RB2. This is a tough matchup for him, but he should see enough volume to return that value this week.Chark has been relatively quiet through the first two weeks of the season and there are now concerns about whether he's going to be able to suit up for this game. At the time of writing, we haven't received any further word, which makes Chark a risky play this week. If he does play, Chark should be viewed as nothing more than a WR3 due to the fact that he'll be less than 100%.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Eagles are just 17th against fantasy running backs, Mixon is a low-end RB1 play at Philly this week.Chark is hurt by playing on a slow-paced offense that does not run a ton of plays and does not throw the ball deep. His big-play ability keeps him in the WR3 range, but he is boom / bust given the Jaguars offensive tendencies through 2 weeks.
