Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Mixon has averaged a whopping 27 touches through two games this season! Though he failed to get any traction against the Bears last week, his opportunities did not diminish. He'll have an equally difficult matchup against Pittsburgh, but a guy seeing so many touches deserves RB1 consideration. Mixon's a top-12 guy even in this one. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Through two games, Mixon is averaging 24.5 carries, 98 rushing yards, and .5 rushing touchdowns. His workload is rivaling the top-tier fantasy assets and he's been an absolute steal for fantasy managers through the first couple of weeks based on where they drafted him. He had a tough matchup on the ground in week two against the Bears defense, but he still provided a high floor based on his workload. He will now get to take on the Steelers defense that has yet to allow a rushing touchdown on the season and is only allowing an average of 84.5 rushing yards per game. The upside for Mixon might not be there this week, but we know he's going to get one of the top carry shares across the entire league, which makes him a very reliable fantasy asset. He can be viewed as a low-end RB1 for week three.To quote Slinky from Toy Story 2 - I have a three-year-old son and this is the only movie we ever watch, cut me some slack - "I've got some good news and I've got some bad news." James Robinson dominated the carry share in week two after seeing only five carries in week one. He ran the ball 11 times in week two as compared to Carlos Hyde's two rush attempts, so this is good news for fantasy managers that spent a higher pick on Robinson. The bad news is that it didn't amount to much and he finished as the RB29 on the week. Robinson should continue to see the majority of the touches in this offense moving forward, but if the offense is going to struggle this much, it's not going to equate to a ton of fantasy production. Robinson can be viewed as a high-end RB3 this week in a tough matchup against the Arizona Cardinals that ranks 6th in Total DVOA.

After a big Week 1, Mixon was relatively quiet in Week 2, rushing 20 times for 69 yards and catching just one pass for two yards. His matchup against Pittsburgh this week is a tough one. Perennially tough against the run, the Steelers are allowing 3.4 yards per carry and haven't given up a TD run yet. But DT Tyson Alualu is out for Week 3, and LBs Devin Bush and T.J. Watt are questionable, so the Pittsburgh defense might not be close to full strength. I have Mixon ranked as a back-end RB1 simply because of the big rushing load he'll handle.Does Urban Meyer know what he wants his backfield to look like? In Week 1, Hyde got a lot of the early-down carries, and Robinson was used in the sort of versatile run-catch role we thought we might see rookie Travis Etienne in before he got hurt. In Week 2, Robinson played 75% of the offensive snaps and out-touched Hyde 14-2. If fantasy managers got a vote, I believe they'd overwhelmingly prefer the Week 2 usage plan. For now, Robinson is a flex-worthy RB3, and Hyde is unplayable.

The Steelers are 4th against fantasy backs and Mixon is coming off a rough game at Chicago. He is still fantasy viable, but he is more of a boom / bust RB2 on the road in a tough matchup.The good news is that Robinson saw his carries increase from 5 to 11 last week, but he still does not see enough touches to be more than a flex option on a terrible offense.
