2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 11 ISSUES: JOE MIXON LATE ADDITION TO INJURY REPORT CAUSE FOR CONCERN

Oh boy.  One of the more tried-and-true fears when it comes to the fantasy football community is when your key players get added or are downgraded on the injury report late in the week.  Often this means such a player will wind up sitting out the upcoming game and leave their owners scrambling.  Such a scenario may be unfolding with Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon who was added to the injury report on Thursday with a knee issue and this is doubly concerning for the fact that he had just returned a few weeks ago from the same injury.  As a result, all Mixon owners should have already grabbed Giovani Bernard where available as the latter has more than proven himself very capable in the past in terms of performing as a RB 1 in at least PPR formats.  Now the Baltimore Ravens run defense is certainly a formidable challenge for both Mixon or Bernard this week but at the same time, the fact the former is looking very shaky health-wise makes his potential absence a big one as the playoff weeks loom and the seedlings get set to be firmed up.  Check back on Friday for an update on Mixon as this could be a while bit of nothing but also get prepared to work in a replacement if needed.
