Joe Mixon Underwhelms In Week 12

Sunday, November 26, 8:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon finished with 16 yards off eight carries in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh. The former Oklahoma Sooner had one of the worst rushing performances of his career. Unfortunately, his four-game scoring streak also came to an end. Still, he at least had two catches for 44 yards to help salvage the day for fantasy managers. Nonetheless, Mixon will be hard to trust in Week 13 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, he remains in the flex conversation, and he could turn it around if things go well with quarterback Jake Browning during practice throughout the week.

Josh Jacobs Dominant In Week 12 Loss

Sunday, November 26, 7:17 PM

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs had a robust workload, rushing for 110 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in the Week 12 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Jacobs' rushing yardage was over 100 yards for the second time this season. The Raiders running back broke off a 63-yard run for a touchdown in the second quarter to extend the Raiders lead. Despite the strong performance, Jacobs ceded receiving work to Ameer Abdullah again. The Raiders appear to favor Abdullah in most passing-down situations. Jacobs and the Raiders have a Week 13 bye week, so the team will have an extra week to rest and prepare for their Week 14 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings run defense has been strong this season, allowing the fourth-fewest yards per carry. Jacobs has proven a reliable asset this season, but fantasy managers must place him on the bench next week.
