Joe Mixon, sell or keep

Postby Krissi24 » Thu Apr 12, 2018 12:35 pm

Is Joe Mixon worth keeping or should I sell him now, before the season starts. I have plenty of interest from other teams in my league.
I really like Mixon and consider him extremely talented, but I really hate his situation with a poor Bengals team. I know that they are upgrading on their O-line, but still have my doubts.
Should I keep him and hope that things will improve or is he a sell now, while he still hold some value??

Until you post an actual offer, you are only going to hear "keep" or "sell for (something that is way out of his price range)." It's not his fault his is super talented and stuck on a terrible team where he can't breakout. :biggrin: :angel:

Well I mean, if you get a very good offer like a Keenan Allen type WR or 1.2 + an RB2 for Mixon then you should always be open to selling if someone is approaching you aggresicely, but Mixon is 100% a hold and if he was owned by a dimwitted and shortsighted owner in any of my leagues looking to sell after a not staller rookie season I'd be desperately trying to buy for a mid 1st or other meh RB

Yeah definitely a hold unless it's a Stella offer, you're getting offers because he is a buy low atm. I expect big things from Mixon this year (as long as the Bengals upgrade their centre/guard in the first 3 rnds)

I don't see why Mixion can't be a top 5 RB in 1-2 years. L.Bell & DJ kind of had similar rookie years. As already mentioned above, if you get a strong offer don't be shy. But right now Mixion is a hold on my rosters.

We’ve seen what poor offensive scheme and line play can do to a player like Gurley. I’m not saying Mixon is as good, but he’s shown promise that he could be very good.

Tried to buy, was told it'd cost me 1.02 and there was no wiggle room. No thanks.

Keep unless the offer is one you cant resist.

Nice young weapon to unleash on your league mates.

Easy keep for me . If Mixon was in this class based on talent alone he would be my clear cut #2 and it would be by a fair margin ..

This is one scouts view.

Now that the top tier rookie rbs are housed in new garages, what are thoughts on Mixon versus the rooks?

I have seen in this thread that in regards to the 2018 rookies:
  • 1.02 > Mixon
  • Mixon > 1.02
To be transparent, I have Mixon and have been offered the 1.02 (PPR).
