Projected 2023 Workload
Joe Mixon is the poster boy for a good player who still feels like a disappointment. While he’s usually in the conversation as a top 16 Running Back when dynasty owners drafted him in their rookie drafts they were expecting something akin to LaDainian Tomlinson. As we move into 2023 it’s ok to expect Mixon to be a fringe RB1/2 type of guy. The Bengals feature a high powered offense and Mixon should dominate the RB touches.

Fantasy Point Mix
Joe Mixon is a reliable point scorer. While he’s never been the RB1 overall and may never be, he’s been very productive. The only real blip on his career arc is 2020 where he missed a few games.

How to Deploy
Competitive teams should keep Mixon and deploy him in your lineup as you normally would. Teams that are not competing in 2023 should try to move him by mid-season for younger assets or draft picks. A competing team may be able to use him in a title chase and possibly give up a late '24 first round pick.
