Joe Mixon Runs For 67 Yards In Loss

Sunday, October 1, 9:04 PM

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon ran for 67 yards off 14 carries during the loss to the Titans on Sunday. He added a catch for nine yards. The former Oklahoma Sooner found the end zone for the first time this season in the win over the Rams on Monday night. However, he failed to score a touchdown in Week 4, which has been the norm throughout the year. At this point, many have lost patience with Mixon, especially after coming off a subpar 2022-23 campaign. But his ceiling is still higher than most in the National Football League, so it will be hard to bench him against the Cardinals in Week 5.

Rhamondre Stevenson On The Week 5 Injury Report

Wednesday, October 4, 4:58 PM

New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson (thigh) is on the Week 5 injury report and was listed as limited in practice on Wednesday. Stevenson's status for the Week 5 game against the New Orleans Saints bears watching. He has been the RB24 in half-PPR leagues through the first four weeks of the season. Stevenson has been the clear lead back for New England, but Ezekiel Elliott has seen more of a workload the last two weeks with Stevenson struggling. The 25-year-old is averaging a weak 2.7 yards per carry for 164 rushing yards and one touchdown on 60 rushing attempts in four games so far in his third NFL season. If Stevenson's injury keeps him from playing this Sunday, Elliott would become the Pats' lead back and have RB2 upside in fantasy.
