2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Zero touches in Week 17
RBChicago Bears
December 31, 2018
Mizzell didn't see work in the Bears' Week 17 victory, and he ended the season with nine carries for 16 yards while adding eight receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown.
Mizzell saw his most work of 2018 when Chase Daniel stepped in for an injured Mitchell Trubisky for two weeks, but otherwise, Mizzell was Chicago's clear third-string running back. He'll be going into the last year of his contract in 2019 and will likely continue to work behind Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen in the Bears' backfield.

Dalvin Cook and Leonard Fournette will hog the headlines at running back, but Alvin Kamara is another RB who could burn up the Combine.
2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
