Joe Mixon, Dameon Pierce Viewed As A "One-Two Punch"

According to Houston Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans, running back Dameon Pierce will have a role this season. While Joe Mixon is believed to be the No. 1 option on the depth chart, it appears Pierce could have a bigger function than anticipated. "I see Dameon having a very clear headspace as we are out working, and I think that will allow him to have a really productive year this year, " said Ryans during an interview with the Houston Chronicle. "He has everything it takes to be a really good running back for us, and I think him and Joe as a one-two punch would be very beneficial for us all." Of course, it remains to be seen how things will work out for the revamped Texans' offense. However, it seems Mixon and Pierce could collectively remain productive enough to exceed expectations during the 2024-25 campaign, although it will be tough to tell which player will be the most productive from week to week.

Joe Mixon Signs Three-Year Extension With Texans

New Houston Texans running back Joe Mixon signed a three-year, $27 million contract extension with the team on Thursday that includes $13 million guaranteed, according to a source. The Cincinnati Bengals were set to cut Mixon for salary cap purposes earlier this week but ended up trading him to the Texans instead. Devin Singletary, Houston's primary back last year, signed with the Giants in free agency. The 27-year-old Mixon, a Pro Bowler in 2021, goes from one potent offense to another and will be the Texans' No. 1 back, giving him clear RB1 upside in fantasy. In 17 starts for Cincy in 2023, Mixon had the fourth 1,000-yard season of his career while scoring nine rushing touchdowns on 257 carries. He added 52 receptions (64 targets) for 376 yards and another three TDs.

Joe Mixon Traded To Texans

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon is being traded to the Houston Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It was previously reported that Mixon was going to be released after the team signed Zack Moss, but Houston zeroed in on the four-time 1,000-yard rusher after losing Devin Singletary to the New York Giants. Now in Houston, Mixon will have plenty of upside in the ascending offense led by C.J. Stroud. Although Mixon has averaged just under 4.0 yards per carry over the last two years, he still has some gas left in the tank, and his situation is a great one for fantasy production. Mixon has the fifth-most receptions by a running back since 2022 (112), making him a valuable asset in PPR formats.

Bengals Release Joe Mixon

According to NFL Media's Tom Pelissero, the Bengals released running back Joe Mixon on Monday night. This was relatively expected, considering the former Sooner needed to take a pay cut to remain in Cincinnati heading into the 2023-24 campaign. However, Mixon ended up having a quality season despite the plethora of injuries to the Bengals offense, running for over 1,000 yards for the fourth time in his career while totaling 12 touchdowns. At any rate, despite the number of available running backs still looking for work, Mixon should be one of the most coveted. He may have a few more quality years left, so he could flirt with making another Pro Bowl appearance before his career is over. Yet, until the 27-year-old signs somewhere, his fantasy outlook will remain a mystery.

Joe Mixon Could Be A Salary Cap Casualty

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler says that Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon and defensive tackle BJ hill are among the team's potential salary cap casualties this offseason, even though Mixon totaled 1,034 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 2023. If the Bengals were to cut Mixon, they'd save $5.8 million for the salary cap. After re-negotiating his deal last year, the 27-year-old is scheduled for an $8.85 million cap hit in 2024 in the final year of his deal. He's due a $3 million roster bonus on March 18, so we'll know by then if he'll be back with Cincinnati. In total, Mixon had 1,410 scrimmage yards and 12 touchdowns, making him the RB7 in half-PPR scoring in the 2023 regular season. As he gets closer to 30 years old, Mixon's days as an RB1 in fantasy could be coming to an end soon, especially if he leaves Cincy.

Joe Mixon Scores Twice In Season Finale

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon ran the ball 14 times for 111 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Browns. He caught just one of two targets. However, it was good enough for another end-zone trip. The former Oklahoma Sooner hit the 100-yard rushing mark for the first time this year, and his efforts in Week 18 resulted in the fourth 1,000-yard rushing season of his career. But with the regular season in the books, the question remains whether Mixon will return to Cincinnati next season. He was almost released in the offseason. But he took a pay cut to stay with the team and finished the year with 12 touchdowns. Overall, Mixon exceeded expectations for fantasy managers. Yet, his outlook for the 2024-25 campaign will hinge on whether he remains in Cincinnati.

Joe Mixon Closes Out A Strong Year Versus Cleveland

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (illness) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of the Week 18 encounter with the Browns. Mixon hasn't hit the 100-yard rushing mark in any game this season. However, he's totaled 10 touchdowns, finding the end zone in eight of his previous 10 games. With the Bengals not going to the playoffs, the former Sooner may not see a full workload. But he has an excellent chance of finding the end zone even if he doesn't log a full 60 minutes against a Browns defense that could rest or limit some of their starters on the defensive end. Mixon also needs just 77 rushing yards for 1,000. As a result, head coach Zac Taylor may allow Mixon to stay out there to attempt to hit that mark for the fourth time in his career, which keeps him in play for any fantasy format.

Joe Mixon Out Sick Thursday

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (illness) sat out of Thursday's practice due to an illness. Mixon should be ready to play by Sunday's Week 18 regular season finale against the Cleveland Browns, but with the Bengals already eliminated from postseason contention, the Bengals could choose to give rookie fifth-rounder Chase Brown and Trayveon Williams more run in the final game of the year. With that hanging over the 27-year-old if he's still under the weather on Sunday, it makes Mixon a much more risky DFS option and RB2 in season-long leagues. On the season as a a whole, Mixon was the RB7 in half-PPR scoring over 16 games with 923 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on 243 carries while adding 51 catches for 370 yards and two more scores.

Joe Mixon Gets Back In The End Zone On Sunday

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon had 65 yards off 21 attempts in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. He added four catches for 22 yards and a touchdown. The 27-year-old didn't do much to benefit fantasy managers in the Week 16 meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, he certainly made up for it versus Kansas City, scoring his tenth touchdown of the 2023-24 campaign. Unfortunately, the Bengals' hopes of a postseason appearance were crushed after the loss, so there's a chance Mixon won't be on the field for the Week 18 divisional clash with the Cleveland Browns.

Joe Mixon Still A Must-Start In Week 17

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) is off the injury report, meaning he's good to go for Sunday's meeting with the Chiefs. The 27-year-old hasn't been the most impactful runner throughout the 2023-24 campaign. However, he still had a touchdown in seven of his eight appearances leading up to the Week 16 matchup with the Steelers. Unfortunately, Mixon didn't play the best in that one, rushing for 43 yards off 11 attempts while catching two passes for seven yards. That said, the former Oklahoma Sooner has been a touchdown-dependent fantasy option all year. But he should remain heavily involved against Kansas City, so fantasy managers in all fantasy formats should keep him in the starting lineup.
