Mixon with ease. I love McCoy but hes going to be 30 next year. Mixon is still just 21 years old and has crazy upside if they ever get an offensive line.

Depends on what the rest of your roster/keepers look like. If you think you'll be competitive next year, a case can be made to keep McCoy...but even then I'd have a hard time dropping Mixon. I think if anything, you can trade Mixon for McCoy+ next year if you need the more immediate production.

Bengals offence should get a kick in the bleep this off-season. Mixon would be the guy.

If this was a league where you only keep one or 2 per year, then I might say Shady because you're basically just looking one single year ahead in those leagues. But a 6-keeper league is a bit more long term so that makes this Mixon easily for me.

Even just in 2018 however, I'll have Mixon right alongside if not ahead of Shady.

With that 5 I honestly think it is a coin flip. The argument for Shady is if you put him with that group its hard to point to a team with a better championship shot in 2018...the argument for Mixon is that group is so good you can take a chance on Mixon because those 5 will cover up for his growing pains. Gun to my head I keep Mixon but is there a way to package up Mixon and McCoy for a super stud?
