Joe Mixon - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Friday, September 15, 9:23 PM

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon ran for 56 yards off 13 carries in the Week 1 loss to the Browns. He added three catches for 17 yards. While it wasn't a terrible performance from the former Oklahoma Sooner, fantasy managers were hoping for more. Unfortunately, that may not come in Week 2, as he has averaged just 55 rushing yards in 11 career meetings with the Ravens. That said, Mixon remains a starting option in all formats. However, nobody would argue with anyone who keeps him out of the starting lineup, especially until he gets his act together.

Austin Ekeler Still Missing From Practice

Thursday, September 21, 6:20 PM

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler (knee) missed another practice on Thursday. Ekeler suffered an ankle injury in the season opener and hasn't practiced since while also missing the Week 2 overtime loss to the Tennessee Titans. He says he's made some progress, but unless he's able to get back on the field in some capacity on Friday, he's likely to miss a second straight game this Sunday on the road against the Minnesota Vikings. Joshua Kelley disappointed as a plug-and-play fantasy option with Ekeler out last weekend, but he'd be worth another shot in fantasy lineups in Minnesota against a porous defense if Ekeler misses another game. Check back on Friday for Ekeler's final status for Sunday's game.
