Dalvin Cook or Joe Mixon

Better RB for .5 PPR dynasty? Dalvin Cook or Joe Mixon? I currently have Cook but I’m thinking about mixing up my team and trying to get Mixon as I view him as more of a 3down player. Input appreciated, thanks.

I think they’re both exceptional 3 down backs. But with Cook on the better team, I lean his way. I love Mixon though and is way cheaper. If you want to move Cook, you could pretty easily get Mixon plus something else


I’d take Cook all day

Cook is the better player, on a better team, doesn’t have to deal with Marvin Lewis, and is proven to be electric in the NFL on all 3 downs.
Mixon can be all of those things; but, on his team, with his OL, and having Marvin Lewis, I think Cook is in a tier above.
That being said, unless you need Mixon to be the RB1 on your team, I would see what you could get.
I would rather have Cook over Mixon; but, would rather have Mixon and something good for Cook.

Let me/us know if the guy is willing to add to Mixon.

I agree. However Cincy has already made improvements to their line and are expected to draft 1 or 2 guys. That’s why Mixon is a nice buy low candidate to me. However the guy with him in my league loves him so I’ll never actually own him.

I’m in the same boat you are; I targeted him but the guy loves him so he is asking for way too much
