Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs BAL (21 / 84 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)

Mixon ran hard and had a couple highlight runs, including a 21-yard scamper that was one of the game's deciding plays. He started right and found nowhere to run, then reversed all the way back across the field to break loose for the big gain. It allowed the Bengals to milk the clock late and set up a field goal to put Cincinnati up by 8 in the games final minutes. Mixon had a goal line carry from the 1-yard line early, but was dropped for a three-yard loss when he tried to break it outside. Mixon left the game in the first half with a knee injury and was listed as questionable to return, spending much of the second quarter in the locker room. He returned and gutted through a knee injury that was obviously bothering him, as he came up gimpy after a couple runs. After the game, Mixon had surgery to remove a loose body in his knee. The procedure was deemed a success and Mixon is reported to be out for the next 2-4 weeks. The most likely return dates would be either Week 5 against the Dolphins or Week 6 against the Steelers.

2018 Week 1 vs IND (17 / 95 / 1 rush, 7 / 5 / 54 / 0 rec)

Mixon was fantastic, both as a runner and pass catcher against the Colts and looks to be well on his way to a breakout season. The Bengals clearly wanted to get him established early, with six of the first seven plays of the game either handoffs or passes to Mixon. He quickly made his presence with a decisive 7-yard run straight up the gut on the first play of the game. He opened the second drive with runs of 4 and 7 yards and then burst for a gain of 21 on a screen pass down the left sideline. He looks noticeably faster and more explosive after slimming down in the offseason. His speed was evident on his long run of the day as well. He outran a Colts linebacker to the edge on an outside run and flew down the sideline for a gain of 21. Mixon's touchdown came from a yard out. The Bengals lined up in a heavy formation with a defensive lineman in at fullback and Mixon leaped over the top to get in. Mixon dominated in terms of usage, with over 90% (22 of 24) of the running back touches on the day. On the game-winning fourth-quarter drive, Mixon was the key, touching the ball on 7-of-10 plays. His seven targets show the Bengals plan to use him heavily as a pass catcher, which makes him an elite fantasy option going forward.
