The Jaguars are 25th against fantasy running backs, hopefully for Mixon owners, this is the week he can make a fantasy splash. He is a low-end RB1 at home. 
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Mixon is on the wrong side of the Bengals game script, as they tend to play from behind very often. He has three games this season with 17 or less rushing yards, and that's probably more of the norm than the exception. He's still the main guy and can be used as a low-end RB2, but temper expectations.Burkhead has been banged up lately and serves as little more than a thorn in the side of Sony Michel owners. You can leave him on your bench unless a different Patriots running back is unavailable.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Most wanted to dismiss the offensive line problems when drafting Mixon in the second-round this offseason, but knowing what we know now, he'd probably fall outside the top four rounds. The upsetting part is that Mixon's seen eight-plus defenders in the box just 4.1 percent of the time, which is the lowest in the NFL. It seems Zac Taylor has done a good job setting up the run-game for success, but the injuries along the offensive line have been catastrophic. The Bengals were without 4-of-5 would-be starters last week (if you go back to their projected line with no injuries/retirements after the NFL Draft). Mixon's touch count has been 8-14-17-19-20-10, so while last week was disappointing, his touch totals were trending in the right direction. The problem, however, is his lack of involvement in the passing game, as he's seen more than three targets just twice, and that's while playing on a team that's averaged 40.5 pass attempts per game. The Jaguars have allowed a league-high 5.39 yards per carry, so maybe this game plays into Mixon's role a bit more. We've watched four different running backs total at least 80 yards on the ground against them, but will the Jaguars pull away the way most teams have done against the Bengals, leaving Mixon with a lesser role? Oddsmakers don't think so, which bodes well for Mixon's potential touches, though the team is projected for just over 20 points. Mixon can go back into lineups as a middling RB2, though you shouldn't have sky-high expectations unless they increase his usage in the passing game.
