Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said that running back Joe Mixon (illness) is out sick on Wednesday. Mixon injured his neck in the second half of the Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, but he returned to the contest and the injury isn't an issue heading into Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers. Those that roster Mixon may want to snag Samaje Perine off the waiver wire as insurance, but as long as Mixon returns to practice at some point this week, he should be good to go and would be a high-end RB1 against a Niners defense that has been a top-10 matchup in terms of fantasy points per week to the RB position all year.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (neck) added another touchdown in Week 13 versus the Chargers, extending his current scoring streak to nine games. However, his 19 carries for 54 yards were a far cry from what fantasy managers witnessed during Cincy's previous bout against the Steelers, where he finished with 165 yards and two touchdowns off 28 touches. Even worse, the former Sooner revealed he sustained a neck injury against Los Angeles, which is certainly never a good thing. As a result, Mixon's status moving ahead should be monitored, especially since there is a chance he may not be available in Week 14 versus the visiting San Francisco 49ers. If that's the case, Samaje Perine will likely handle most of the work out of the backfield and warrants a roster spot in deeper formats.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon led his team to a decisive 41-10 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday, finishing with 28 carries for a career-high 165 yards. He also had two touchdowns and averaged an impressive 5.9 YPC against a Steelers defense that has undoubtedly had its share of struggles defensively this season. The 25-year-old now has at least one trip to the end zone in each of his previous eight games. Without question, he is one of the most elite fantasy options at the position and should unquestionably continue starting in all fantasy setups moving ahead.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon had a fantastic performance during the win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. Mixon tied a career-high 30 carries to total 123 yards. He also had a pair of touchdowns, with one occurring in each half. The former Sooner continues to get it done this year, and he has now scored at least once in all but two games. It's apparent Mixon has emerged as one of the best backs in the league and, as a result, remains a must-start versus the Steelers in Week 12.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon has arguably had the best season of his career during the 2021-22 campaign. The former second-round pick continues to get it done and has scored at least one touchdown in each of his last six appearances. While his touches have been reduced somewhat since the beginning of the year, he remains one of the best fantasy options at the position. Nonetheless, with Cincy looking to get back into the win column in Week 11 against the Raiders, the 25-year-old should continue to be an essential part of the Bengals' offense and unquestionably stay in all fantasy lineups. Mixon's ability on the receiving end also enhances his value even more, and with a rostering cost lower than others, he certainly commands consideration in DFS contests as well.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon was the lone bright spot for his team during Sunday's loss to Cleveland. The former Sooner had yet another efficient outing, compiling 64 yards and two touchdowns off 13 touches, finding the end zone on an 11-yard run in the first quarter before locating it again off a two-yard carry early in the fourth. He also caught all five of his targets from the struggling Joe Burrow to total 46 yards. Overall, it was another impressive outing from the 25-year-old, who continues to exceed expectations during the 2021-22 campaign. Mixon now has at least one touchdown in each of his previous six games, and at this rate, there is no reason for him to be sitting in any fantasy lineup, regardless of the matchup moving ahead.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon had 18 touches for 91 yards from scrimmage with a touchdown against the New York Jets. Although the Bengals lost, they remain among the most electric offenses in the league, and Mixon remains one of the only workhorse running backs. Regardless of the Bengals' game script, Mixon will be a vital piece to their game plan. Moreover, with such a balanced offense, Mixon will inevitably disappoint some games, but for the most part, Mixon will benefit from this situation like he has in the past couple weeks. The 25-year-old is a top 10 running back and might be a trade target if he's not treated as such by another manager in your league.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon rushed for 59 yards on 12 attempts and a touchdown in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He salvaged his fantasy day by busting out a 21-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter. The 25-year-old has rushed for 539 yards and four touchdowns while catching 13 passes for 90 yards and over seven games in 2021. Mixon continues to lead the Bengals backfield and is a solid fantasy option against the New York Jets in Week 8.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon didn't seem bothered by the ankle injury that limited his workload over the last few weeks. He finished with 94 yards off 18 touches during the massive victory over the Lions. He also racked up a team-high five catches, totaling 59 yards and a touchdown, finding the end zone off a 40-yard pass from Joe Burrow in the third quarter. After some down weeks caused by a restricted workload, the former Oklahoma Sooner appears to be back in early season form. Fantasy managers should continue to view Mixon as a top option in all formats, especially in PPR leagues, due to his ability as a runner and pass-catcher. Keep him starting in Week 7 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. That ankle injury limited Mixon last week, as he played just 28 percent of the team's snaps and had 33 rushing yards, a season-low. Mixon should see more work this week against Detroit, but he's still likely not going to be back to the workload he had when fully healthy for another week or so. Consider Mixon an RB2 for this matchup.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) is expected to play against Detroit on Sunday. Mixon has been dealing with a bum ankle for weeks now, and even though he saw a limited workload during the overtime loss to Green Bay, he still managed to rack up 33 yards and a touchdown off 10 carries. The former Sooner could be back to his usual workload against the Lions, so without a doubt, he should be starting in all fantasy formats.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) is listed as questionable on the final injury report for Week 6 against the Detroit Lions. Mixon was limited in practice on Wednesday and Friday and sat out on Thursday. Despite the questionable tag, fantasy managers shouldn't be worried, as the Bengals expect Mixon to handle a normal workload this Sunday after he had a season-low 11 touches in last week's loss to the Green Bay Packers. Samaje Perine is also on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and is unlikely to play this weekend, so rookie Chris Evans will serve in a change-of-pace role behind Mixon. At closer to 100 percent health and in an excellent matchup against a bad Lions run defense, Mixon has high-end RB1 upside in Week 6.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) is expected to receive a full workload in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions, according to head coach Zac Taylor. Mixon took the day off in practice on Thursday, but he's getting closer to 100 percent after being limited in Week 5. The 25-year-old ceded 15 touches to Samaje Perine, who is now on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, but Mixon was able to save his fantasy day with a visit to the end zone in the loss to the Green Bay Packers. With Perine likely to be out this Sunday, Mixon should have a larger workload while being spelled by rookie Chris Evans. The Lions defense has also allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to RBs, so Mixon should be locked into starting fantasy lineups as an upside RB1.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) worked with the running backs in drills toward the end of media availability during the team's practice on Wednesday. It doesn't sound like Mixon got in a full practice, but he did get some work in. If he can increase his activity throughout the week, he should be able to play in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions after playing in a limited role in the Week 5 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Mixon carried the ball 10 times for 33 yards, but he saved his fantasy day with a touchdown. Samaje Perine had a team-high 15 carries, but he is now on the COVID-19 list. A fully healthy Mixon would be a must-start against the winless Lions. If Mixon is limited again, rookie Chris Evans could have a much bigger role if Perine doesn't get cleared to play.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) shed his questionable tag prior to the Week 5 outing against the Packers. However, he only saw limited work during the overtime loss, but he managed to score a touchdown, finding the end zone off an eight-yard run in the fourth quarter. Nonetheless, although the former Sooner's fantasy managers weren't sure what type of production they would get out of him against Green Bay, he has been playing too well this season to consider benching, at least in deeper formats. Samaje Perine was also involved on Sunday, scoring a touchdown of his own. Still, if Mixon can get some rest and heal up some more ahead of the Week 6 matchup against Detroit, it's logical that he will see an uptick in touches against the struggling Lions, reaffirming his usual must-start designation even more.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) is officially active for the team's contest against the Green Bay Packers. While Mixon isn't expected to be at 100 percent, he should still outsnap backup running back Samaje Perine. Still, Mixon's unlikely to see the kind of workload that we usually see from the 25-year-old back, so fantasy managers might not want to rely on Mixon this week. Consider him an RB3 play with touchdown upside.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) will play on Sunday after being listed as questionable. However, he is not expected to be at 100 percent and thus won't receive a full workload. The 25-year-old has logged 382 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns through four games this year. Fantasy managers might want to think twice about starting him due to the lingering injury and decreased usage. Alternately, Samaje Perine could see more involvement while rookie Chris Evans checks in on passing downs, though neither rank anywhere higher than the RB4 tier this week.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) will play during Sunday's matchup against the Packers. The former Oklahoma Sooner tweaked his ankle during the Thursday Night Football win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, so his status against Green Bay had been in question ever since. However, it's possible he doesn't see a full workload, with NFL Network's Tom Pelissero only indicating that he will play "in some capacity." As a result, Mixon's fantasy managers may want to consider other options in Week 5. Samaje Perine may also still be involved more than he has throughout the year, but his outlook is much cloudier now that Mixon is back in the equation.
The Cincinnati Bengals will take a look at running back Joe Mixon (ankle) on Saturday and decide on his status for Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers. Mixon missed his third straight day of practice on Friday, which is usually never a good sign, but he's only dealing with a low ankle sprain and could be a game-time decision on Sunday morning. If the 25-year-old is limited or out this weekend, the Bengals are expected to go with a committee approach featuring Samaje Perine and rookie Chris Evans. Perine is likely to be the go-to guy on early downs and in short-yardage situations, while Evans would likely take over third-down work. Mixon will likely draw a questionable tag on the final injury report for Week 5.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) was not spotted during the portion of Friday's practice open to the media. Mixon, who has been dealing with a low-ankle sprain, has yet to take the practice field this week- and another 'DNP' would have him looking doubtful for Sunday's matchup with Green Bay. If Mixon sits out the game, fellow backs Samaje Perine and Chris Evans would be in line to see more work against a Packers defense that has been a middle-of-the-pack matchup for opposing backs. Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan noted yesterday that Perine and Evans would likely split the touches- though Perine should be the favorite to lead the committee. He could have flex appeal, particularly in PPR formats, thanks to his ability as a pass-catcher.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) was not seen practicing at the portion open to the media on Thursday. It would be Mixon's second straight missed practice after he suffered a low ankle sprain in Week 4 last Thursday. He'll need to practice at least on a limited basis on Friday to have a shot at playing in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers. Expect Mixon to be questionable for this weekend, and he could be a game-time decision Sunday morning. Offensive coordinator Brian Callahan said that if Mixon is out, they will likely take a "committee" approach to the backfield and split touches between Samaje Perine and rookie Chris Evans. Perine was a popular waiver pickup this week, but he'll be a low-ceiling RB3/flex if Mixon is inactive.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) was not able to practice on Wednesday. Mixon suffered a low-ankle sprain in last Thursday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, but head coach Zac Taylor is hoping that Mixon can be worked into practice later this week. The 25-year-old might need to get in a full practice before the end of the week in order to be given the green light to play in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers. If Mixon can't get the clearance, Samaje Perine and rookie Chris Evans would likely split the backfield workload, with Perine expected to see more touches. Perine was a popular waiver-wire pickup this week and would fall into the RB3/flex umbrella if Mixon is inactive.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) was deemed "day-to-day" and will be limited in practice early this week, according to head coach Zac Taylor. Mixon was officially diagnosed with a low-grade ankle sprain in last Thursday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Bengals are optimistic that Mixon has a chance to play in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers if he looks good in practice this week. The 25-year-old's ankle is not at all related to the foot injury that kept him out for the final 10 games in 2020. Mixon was injured late in the game against Houston last week, so Samaje Perine saw just one carry, with Perine and Chris Evans combining for three catches and 34 yards. Mixon will be a must-start fantasy RB if he's able to play this weekend.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) was diagnosed with a low-grade ankle sprain after exiting the team's Thursday night game early in Week 4. He is considered week to week, so fantasy managers can breathe a sigh of relief as it is not something that will put him on the shelf for too long. In his absence, Samaje Perine will likely lead the backfield in carries, while rookie Chris Evans would also see an increased role in the passing game. Perine is worth a waiver pickup as he would immediately end up in the FLEX conversation for however long he is the top option in the running game. Evans could be on the radar in deeper leagues, but it would be best to see what kind of role the rookie can carve out in Week 5.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) ran for 67 yards and a touchdown off 16 carries during the win over the Jaguars on Thursday night. He also caught one of his two targets. The former Oklahoma Sooner ended a two-game scoreless drought, doing so by punching in a one-yard run in the third quarter. Yet, the notable takeaway of the evening came when Mixon was observed limping on the sidelines toward the end of the contest. Head coach Zac Taylor confirmed that Mixon is dealing with an ankle issue, but fantasy managers have a good chance to see him out there with a few additional days added before the Week 5 matchup against the packers. Still, if he isn't able to go, Samaje Perine would likely be the one to get most of the carries out of the backfield versus Green Bay.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
