Just bought him for henry.
I think Mixon is the overall better talent but I'd honestly rather have Henry unless it's full PPR, he has the benefit of a much, much better offensive line and a young QB who has a strong rushing ability and will almost always keep a LB off as a spy, lessening the defensive front for Henry. Not only that but with Demarco hurt and Lewis insisting on trying to get every RB on the Bengals involved I think he's a stronger play now and not just down the road.

I didn't see the game, but did Mixon play as poorly as his stats? I'm hoping it's more of the poor run blocking or play calling.

My guess is he continued to try to kick everything outside, but didn't break anything long to save his ypc? That's pretty much defined his performance in what I have seen. Kid has great athleticism, but either doesn't have faith in his blockers or doesn't know how to follow a blocker. Probably doing what a lot of guys coming into the league do and trying to get game breaking plays every play instead of just taking what is there.

Who runs some of these teams? Bengals, chargers, Seahawks, colts.... Maybe they know more than me, but I would assume you can't run an offense without an oline. It's infuriating watching them try and move the ball downfield. Everyone talks about how important qbs are but look how far that's gotten the colts. Bengals let go their 2 best olinemen and look at them try and move down field in the run. So frustrating...

He ran against the 5th best Team against the run.... never understood why Cleveland was his supposed coming out party with that horrid O-Line Against a extremely underrated group of run stoppers.... It's as if you carry the name Cleveland then you must be bad at everything then... Still a great time to buy low because he doesn't look bad at all. People are going to panic hard now.

I'm not panicking yet, but I noticed he had a big uptick in carries late in the game. I suspect it was when they were up big and Cleveland knew they weren't going to pass...,hence they focused on stopping the run. Just curious though.

Mixon's YPC is awful so far, but I'd like to point out to y'all that his cumulative PFF grade before Week 4 was a quite decent 78.5, good for 10th best in the NFL at the halfback position at that point in time. That he has struggled statistically sort of only makes the grade more impressive, as it means PFF's graders are watching his film and consistently concluding that he isn't actually leaving yards on the field himself.

Tape up until this week has looked good. I didn't catch the game this week but doesn't sound like he continued "looking good". I'd like to see it for myself rather than just box score scouting, but assuming nobody will compile his touches on YouTube since he did nothing with them.

I think I'm just burying my head in the sand and hoping it gets better.

I think we (Mixon owners) have to. I do think he’s talented but in a less than ideal situation.

Cincy's OL was always going to be the huge question mark this year...worried about it when I drafted Mixon over Cook and McCaffrey, the good news is this new OC knows what's up with Jeremy Hill but Mixon definitely needs to pick up the pace.

Also some good perspective here,

"Per PFF, no offensive line has opened up fewer yards before contact per rush than #Bengals have for Joe Mixon (0.30). League average: 1.40." -Barfield

I think it's a little alarming that his YPC is so poor yet he's faced a light front for nearly 40% of his carries. Contrast that with Foreman only facing a light front 10% of the time. The line is bad though, Mixon does have a top 20 in juke rate and top 15 in yards created per touch. So according to that he's playing ok.

What I did watch, there was absolutely nothing created for inside runs, yet the coaches still call inside runs pretty often. Hopefully, we see the situation improve eventually.

Maybe, yet Bernard/Hill seem to be getting at least some running room. What a lot of these stats don't measure is how much is there not being any holes vs. how much is Mixon not finding them.

Interesting note that on 43 combined rushes for Bernard/Hill this year they have only two carries total that went for negative yards. On 52 rushes Mixon has EIGHT that went for negative yards, including -4, -4, and -5 in just the last game alone.

Small sample size but it seems like an awfully large disparity for it to simply be that the line suddenly gets worse when Mixon is in the game, especially given that this is exactly what the scouts were dinging Mixon for as his biggest negative when he was a prospect (for the very few that were willing to read past the off the field stuff).

Barry Sanders had the most negative run plays back in his hay day. It is just something inherent in the style that both him and Mixon implement. They will take an inside run, see nothing there, they know they can make stuff happen on their own with their feet in space so they bounce to the outside, sometimes even backwards a bit. Then they navigate it as best they can, but when they get swarmed they lose yards, if they would have plowed into nothing then its is a -2 to +2 play for sure, but Sanders and Mixon have the confidence and ability to turn a nothing inside run into a chunk gain, but that also come with the risk of them not making the edge and getting got for a loss.

I wouldnt be worried about the amount of negative run plays unless it is a long term habit, but I think it is something that can easily be coached out of Mixon, and quickly to boot. That was one of the few flaws I saw in his game coming into the league is that he is ALWAYS looking for something better, risking a negative play to do it; instead of taking what is there and getting back to the LOS or a couple yards. Easily corrected with practice and a change of mindset from swing for the fences every time and strike out a few but get a few home runs to I know if I crush the ball I'll get a homer, but right now all I need is a bunt or a single.
