Executive News: Jeremy Hill May Start But Joe Mixon Will Finish

Corey Parson August 11, 2017 8:31AM EST

Here we go again with beat writers and training camp news. Don’t get me wrong, I have a ton of respect for the ladies and gentlemen that cover pro football teams. I’m sure it’s a helluva grind. People in the Fantasy Football world rely on these good journalists to get us information straight from the practice fields and locker rooms. The latest Fantasy Football related drama is taking place in Cincinnati in the Bengals backfield. The Fantasy Football community is really into rookie running back Joe Mixon. My Co-Host on the Fantasy Football Frenzy, accuracy expert “All in Kid” Jake Ciely, likes Joe Mixon so much he took him in the second round of the Fantasy League of Experts Draft last weekend. It’s not the job of the Bengals beat writers to tell Fantasy Football owners what they want to hear.

Twice in the past week, a different Bengals beat reporter has reported that Jeremy Hill will be the starting running back and not rookie Joe Mixon. Hill has been flat out terrible the past two seasons, averaging only 3.8 yards per attempt. The Bengals lost Rex Burkhead to free agency in the offseason, so drafting a running back was high on their priority list. Joe Mixon is a first round talent, but an off the field domestic violence incident caused him to fall into the second round of the draft, In the video for Executive Edge subscribers, I explain how I think this backfield drama will play out and where Fantasy Football owners should be drafting Joe Mixon over the course of the next few weeks.
