I voted Henry, even though I know that is not a popular position. I think they are similarly talented and have similar backfield competition in Gio and Lewis, I think Henry is more talented as a runner, has shown more of an ability to be a workhorse, and is on what looks to be a better offense going forward.
Mixon is definitely a better receiver, but I don't think he is as good as Gio in that aspect, so I don't see that helping him as much as it could.

On the contrary I see Mixon being a better receiver than Gio. I don't see Henry catching much if any at all with Dion there. I think He'll get 60% of the carries and goal line work but without catches he's going to be a touchdown dependent back. I'd rather have my money on the guy who will get 70-90% of the carries and still catch more than half the back field receptions.

Mixon and not close for me. Legit 3 down back. Big time committee for Titans now and frankly, Lewis may end up being better in fantasy than Henry.

Don't get me wrong, I like Mixon and am trying to buy him, but he split touches with Jeremy Hill and Gio last year. To say he's a legit 3 down back is a bit of an overstatement imo, even if it was mostly poor coaching. He's valued like he just put up an RB1 season with his other draft classmates.

Hill is gone and Gio has never been anything other than a change of pace back. OC already came out and said Mixon will be used like a bell cow next year. I know thats just coach talk but he has the skillset and is better than gio in every way. If he doesn't get close to 300 touches next year all of the coaches need to be fired.

Voted Henry but not super confident in it. I like em both, but they both have enough risk markers to keep em just outside the top 10 in my book.

What I like about Henry, he was the better runner last year in Tennessee, and even with Lewis in town I think he's in line to get the bulk of the 360 carries that went to Murray/Henry last year. When Henry got at least 13 carries, they only lost one game, going 1-1 against Jacksonville. Im betting on the Titans giving him a nice workload this year, something like 200 carries, 900 yards, and sniffing double digits TDs. The risk is, of course, he will only catch 10 or so balls, and Lewis could eat into that rushing workload.

What I like about Mixon is, hes in that same talent pool as Cook, Kamara, Hunt, some were ranking him higher than those guys in terms of talent a year ago, some still are. The problem is, Gio is still there to take away catches and carries, and the deal breaker to me: the Bengals havent yet adressed their O line. I avoided every Bengal I could last year. Even AJ turned in a weaker stat line (3rd worst in his carreer, but those 2 that were lower, didnt start a full 16 games. Not a bad year but definitely weak). They give me some confidence that line will be better I'll change tunes.

Normally I'd take talent over situation, but my marks have the gap in talent much smaller than the gap in situation. Just as a snapshot, pff rankings have Tennesses oline 5th, and cinci's at 28th last year.
my main league, half PPR, all TDs 6, -4 for INT
14 team
