2019 Fantasy Outlook
In the second half of 2018, Mizzell carved out a role as the Bears' third-string running back, but in the nine games he played, he touched the ball just 17 times. Aside from a touchdown pass he caught from backup quarterback Chase Daniel, Mizzell largely was unimpressive, and as a runner he averaged just 1.9 yards over nine carries. Despite Jordan Howard being traded away, the Bears added David Montgomery and Mike Davis to the backfield this offseason, making it difficult to project much of a workload for Mizzell.

Quiet performance
WRChicago Bears
August 19, 2019
Mizzell netted minus-1 yard on four carries in the Bears' preseason loss to the Giants on Friday.
After posting 35 yards on four touches in the preseason opener, Mizzell followed that up with a very uninspiring performance. He'll continue to battle with Ryan Nall and Kerrith Whyte for the No. 4 running back spot as the preseason moves forward.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Mizell posted no stats as a rookie while being on the active roster in three games. At 170 pounds, don't expect him to take over much of the early-down workload should Jordan Howard get injured. In the event that happens, though, Mizell certainly could have an opportunity to seize some of the work on first and second downs in a backfield that also includes Tarik Cohen and Benny Cunningham, neither of whom is likely to thrive in a high-volume rushing role. Mizell will be a player to watch in training camp, but unless he has an impressive August, it's difficult to foresee him being a fantasy factor in 2018.
An undrafted rookie, Mizzell wasn't a prolific rusher during his time at the University of Virginia, but he did catch 127 passes over this final two seasons. He was unable to find a spot on the Ravens' roster coming out of training camp, but the Bears saw enough potential in him to put in a waiver claim. He'll likely act as a depth back in his first NFL season.
