Here are your Week 11 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Sit.
Joe Mixon, Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens
With the receiving corps banged up the Ravens, already a tough defense to run on, has to know the Bengals are going to lean on Mixon. What’s likely going to happen is the Bengals will use Mixon while the game is close to pound the ball but will be better served to use him in the passing game. Either way, the Ravens have held running backs in check until lately (Alvin Kamara, James Conner and Christian McCaffery). The thing with those backs is that they weren’t one of two healthy options for their respected teams. Mixon is likely to see stacked boxes of six or seven at the line and unless Andy Dalton can find other receivers to step up, the Ravens front seven are going to be waiting for Mixon to get that handoff or swing pass.
