Here are your Week 10 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Sit.
Joe Mixon and Gio Bernard, Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens
With news that A.J. Green could be shut down for the season and Ryan Findley swapped out as the new starting quarterback, hope is slipping away in Cincinnati. We don’t know if there’s much left in Mixon’s tank. He finally got more than 10 carries last week and got involved in the passing game. However from a pure rushing standpoint, he hasn’t found the end zone and the Ravens are as tough as usual against the run.
They’ve allowed just two backs to reach 65 yards rushing. To produce against the Ravens, one needs volume and we haven’t seen that kind of commitment to run in Cincinnati. The last time Mixon ran against the Ravens he got just 10 total touches for 39 yards. Assuming he gets the ball more this time around, we wouldn’t count on many situations where we would give him the starting nod.
