Joe Mixon Looks To Remain Involved In Week 4

Friday, September 29, 11:56 PM

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon didn't do much in the first two weeks of the 2023-24 campaign. But in Week 3 versus the Los Angeles Rams, he scored his first touchdown of the year. While the former Oklahoma Sooner still hasn't surpassed the 100-yard rushing mark this season, his performance on Monday was a step in the right direction. Mixon will look to keep fantasy managers happy in Week 4 against Tennessee. On paper, the Titans defense has allowed only 156 rushing yards to opposing running backs all year. However, that number is somewhat misleading, considering Tennessee played the Saints, Chargers, and Browns, who were all without their top running backs. If Joe Burrow (calf) can keep the Tennessee defense on its toes by connecting with Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, and Tyler Boyd, Mixon should get the breathing room needed to be productive in Week 4.

James Conner A Shaky RB2 For Week 4

Saturday, September 30, 1:36 AM

Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner faces tough sledding this week against the San Francisco 49ers. Last week against the Dallas Cowboys, Conner carried the ball 18 times for 98 yards and a touchdown. Even though Conner is currently fourth best in the league in explosive run rate, San Francisco is an elite run defense. They have yielded the seventh-lowest explosive run rate, the sixth-lowest missed tackles allowed rate, and the fourth-lowest yards after contact per attempt. With Arizona also having a weak offensive line, the possibility exists the 49ers will stack the box against Conner and force quarterback Joshua Dobbs to beat them. Even though Conner has been solid at the RB position so far, he's at best an RB2 for this week's matchup.
