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.

Travis Etienne Jr. With 86 Scrimmage Yards In Win At Texans

Sunday, November 26, 7:55 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne Jr. rushed 20 times for 56 yards, adding four receptions on six targets for 30 yards in a win at Houston. On a day where the Texans clamped down on the ground game it was promising to see Etienne still draw six targets in the game, which was tied for third on the team with Calvin Ridley. The former first-round pick received multiple carries inside the ten-yard line but wasn't able to convert any of them into points. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence also vultured yet another touchdown from Etienne, punching in a score from one yard out in the second quarter. It wasn't the performance that fantasy managers hoped against a vulnerable Houston rush defense, but Etienne continues to see top-level utilization in this offense which makes him an easy RB1 start every week.
