Salvages day with late TD
Mixon rushed 12 times for 59 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Ravens.
The Bengals struggled to get much going against the Ravens' defensive front, but late scores from Mixon and Samaje Perine (both from 20-plus yards out) helped mask what was a rough day on the ground. Mixon has been a solid fantasy contributor so far through seven games, but his continued decline in the passing game does hurt his stock a bit. The 25-year-old had zero receptions (or targets) Sunday and has now recorded five games with one or fewer receptions. Mixon is still the lead dog in Cincinnati -- the even split in carries with Perine was a result of the blowout -- so he remains a solid option heading into a favorable matchup against the Jets next Sunday.
