Joe Mixon Hard To Trust In Week 3

Friday, September 22, 10:29 PM

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon will continue his quest for his first touchdown of the 2023-24 campaign on Monday night against the Rams. The 27-year-old has hardly impressed anyone this season, totaling only 115 rushing yards off 26 touches for 4.4 YPC. He's also caught seven of his 10 targets for 53 yards. At this rate, some fantasy managers have already run out of patience, so you can't blame them for benching him in Week 3. However, there's no denying the talent level possessed by the former Oklahoma Sooner, considering he has a Pro Bowl appearance on his resume, keeping him at least a flex candidate in all fantasy setups. This won't change even if Joe Burrow (calf) doesn't play.

Tyler Allgeier - Week 3 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Wednesday, September 20, 9:27 AM

Atlanta Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier was the RB4 overall in standard scoring formats in Week 1 but had a disappointing Week 2 effort with 16 carries for 48 yards. However, his workload is still respectable enough to roll the dice on him in FLEX spots, especially in the deep leagues. In Week 3 against the Detroit Lions, the Falcons will continue to adopt a run-first approach and should have success on the ground. Allgeier is dependent on touchdowns to pay off in fantasy football, but he should have a good chance at finding the end zone against a mediocre defense. His workload could be reduced as the season moves forward, so now is the time to get the value out of him in fantasy lineups.
