A case can be made for keeping Mixon or CEH.
A hear a lot about the durability of Mixon. Until last year, Mixon only missed 4 games in 3 years. That is more games played in that span than Dalvin Cook. I know Cook has produced at an elite level compared to Mixon, but the issue is Cook has never played a full season in 4 years yet he is being taken top 2 in drafts and no one says anything about his durability.
Mixon was listed on the injury report constantly, but that strengthens his case of being durable, imho, because while on those reports he still produced at an RB1 level, with that bad O-Line. In addition, his main competition for passing work, Bernard is gone.
CEH was drafted way too high last year. Before Bell was signed, CEH was the RB11 with only 3 TDs. If he would have scored 1 more TD in that span, he would have been the RB6. CEH ended up as the RB22 with only 5 total TDs for the year.
KC let Bell go and massively upgraded the O-Line this offseason. I also submit CEH is the 3rd target on the team now. I have changed my outlook on CEH, since KC’s offseason changes. I believe last year was CEH’s floor and I see him as a low RB1/high RB2 this year with positive TD regression coming for CEH.
I lean CEH over Mixon, although I like both of them this year.
