NASHVILLE, TN - NOVEMBER 12: Running Back Joe Mixon carries the ball as he is defended by Linebacker Wesley Woodyard (Wesley Hitt/Getty Images)

Should I Start Joe Mixon? - Let's address the elephant in the room first: Joe Mixon hasn't lived up to his draft hype. The rookie running back was taken in the fifth or six round in most fantasy football leagues. Unfortunately, he hasn't rushed for more than 70 yards in a single game and has just three touchdowns on the season. His involvement in the passing game has helped keep him afloat as a fantasy option, but he hasn't had that "breakout game".

Mixon Impossible

Simply put, Mixon has been frustrating for his fantasy owners. At this point, it's fair to wonder whether he's even a clear start going into Week 11 of the 2017 season. He hasn't topped 15 carries since Week 4 against Cleveland. He's put up crummy yardage totals in each of the past few weeks. His fantasy output totals the past two weeks were only saved by a touchdown in each game. The news gets even worse for Mixon's owners; in Week 11, he'll face a tough Broncos defense today that's allowed just 3.4 yards per carry to opposing running backs. In fact, Denver has only allowed 81 total rushing yards per game.

During the first half of Sunday's game between the Bengals and the Jaguars, tensions between Cincinnati wide receiver A.J. Green and Jacksonville cornerback Jalen Ramsey culminated in blows.

Green spoke to reporters after the game. He told them that he was merely defending himself against Ramsey's repeated "cheap shots" throughout the first half. Ramsey is known for antagonizing receivers he is covering. "When you start trying to take cheap shots when I'm not looking and stuff like that, then that's when I've got to defend myself and I'm not going to back down from anybody," Green elaborated. "I have a son, and I'm not going to teach him to back down from anybody like that"

A grievance filed by A.J. McCarron could affect the Bengals backup QB's free agency.

According to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN, Cincinnati backup quarterback A.J. McCarron has filed a grievance against his team. The goal is to be granted unrestricted free agency after the end of the 2017 season. McCarron recently made headlines after a planned trade to the Browns fell though, in part due to mismatched trade documents submitted to the NFL. The Bengals reportedly viewed McCarron as a valuable asset, further complicating a deal with their AFC North rivals.
