Mixon's pickup and worth


#1

Joe Mixon became available this week. I have M Mack and D Henry on bench. Should I pick him up and drop one of my handcuffs? Starters are Bell and Buck Allen. If I do pick him up would he be a better flex option then Garcon or ASJ? Thanks for the help!

You absolutely pick him up! Drop whichever of those you prefer - because a clear volume back will always be more valuable than a handcuff. The handcuff is only valuable because they COULD become a volume back.

I am high on mixon this week, so in a standard or .5 ppr I would start him over both of those options, I’d do a coin toss on Garcon if it’s full point.


#3

Take out buck allen and put in mixon - drop whoever you need to. And I would probably go garcon over buck and asj.


#4

You actually might bench buck Allen and start mixon, flex Garcon. Is what I would realistically lean toward


#5

Definitely get mixon, volume will turn to td soon. I would drop Mack, Gore has never been hurt before so he will be 50/50 at best. Murray as some injury history so Henry is more likely to benefit in that regard. Plug him in immediately too!

Mixon is on waivers till Friday so I would be missing the Thursday night game in case I can’t pick him up. The only other option would be Mack as he is not on bye week. I could bench Buck and pick up Lewis if I don’t get Mixon as another option, Bilal is also on the board for pick up so I guess I do have options. Any thoughts?


#7

Play buck if you cant get mixon, but my god why is mixon still on the waivers.


#8

Someone just dropped Mixon is why he’s back on waivers…but I wont know if I can pick him up until after Bucks game tonight, Friday is when it clears.


#9

Ahhhh… This absolutely complicates the situation. Is your league a faab? What waiver order are you if not.


#10

No faab, I’m 6th in the waiver order. So if I sit Buck and don’t pick up Mixon, there still are options open, being Bilal, Lewis, or Jalen Richard that I could possibly pick up. I have a feeling Buck might get it done tonight however and would be kicking myself if he did and I benched him. Ahhhh I don’t know!


#11

Gonna have to play buck man im sorry. I have a feeling mixon might get picked up and it’s too risky :confused:

Yea I think so too. Thanks for the advice, if I do pick him up I’ll probably flex him instead of Garcon. Cheers!
