Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 16 times for 65 yards (4.1 per rush) in Saturday's win over the Patriots. He added 7 receptions for 43 yards among 9 targets (tied for 2nd on the team). The efficiency wasn't great, but it was nice to see Mixon clearly leading the backfield in both phases. He goes up against the Bills in Week 17.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon only managed to record 21 yards on 11 carries in Sunday's win vs. the Buccaneers. Fortunately, Mixon made up for the less-than-stellar effort by adding 5 catches and 33 yards in the receiving game. Teammate Samaje Perine did not find much success either with 7 carries for 24 yards and one catch for no gain. Week 16's showdown against the Patriots will be difficult next week, as the Pats D ranks as the single-most difficult matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs this season. As such, fantasy managers advancing in the playoffs should temper expectations for Mixon moving forward.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon seems to have a tough matchup with the Bucs this weekend. Tampa Bay ranks 10th toughest on RB scoring by our adjusted fantasy points allowed and has yielded the 6th-fewest PPR points per game to the position. But most of that has been limiting TD production. The Buccaneers sit tied for 3rd-fewest RB rushing TDs allowed. But they've also allowed 4.6 yards per rush, 11th most in the league. Two of the past 3 opponents have had a RB go over 110 yards on the ground. So it might not be as bad a matchup as the overall numbers suggest. The biggest issue for Mixon might be Samaje Perine edging him in pass routes and targets last week. The Bengals' lead back still sits in RB1 territory in our Week 15 fantasy football rankings.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon managed a solid stat line in his return Sunday from a 2-game concussion. He tallied 106 total yards, with 96 rushing on 14 carries and 10 on his 2 receptions (2 targets). Mixon worked as the clear lead runner, ceding just 5 carries to Samaje Perine (4) and Trayveon Williams (1). But Perine actually beat Mixon in receiving opportunities. He drew 5 targets (1 catch) and ran 3 more routes than the starter. Perine also scored the team's lone rushing TD, from 6 yards out. If this increased role continues, it will hurt both the floor and ceiling for Mixon, who gets challenging rushing matchups with the Buccaneers and Patriots the next 2 weeks.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. We're expecting Mixon to step back into a similar role to the one he had before missing the last 2 games. He's a RB1 play against a bad Cleveland run defense.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It's his first full practice since going down in Week 11 and puts him on track to return for Sunday's game vs. the Browns.

Bengals HC Zay Taylor said Monday that RB Joe Mixon (concussion) was held out of the Chiefs game for "precautionary reasons." He added that Mixon could clear concussion protocol early this week. There's a good chance that Mixon is back for Sunday's game vs. the Browns, but nothing's definitive until he gets full clearance.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. With Mixon out last week, RB Samaje Perine played 80% of Cincinnati’s offensive snaps and handled 17 carries and 7 targets. He’s a legit RB1 in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Dan Graziano hears that Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) is "highly unlikely" to play vs. the Chiefs later today. "They haven’t officially ruled him out yet," Graziano adds. But
"something would have to change last minute." We won't get Cincinnati's inactives until 3 pm ET, but Mixon should be on fantasy benches right now. Samaje Perine is a fantasy RB1 if Mixon is out.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon still hadn't cleared concussion protocol as of late Saturday night and is a "long shot" to play vs. the Chiefs today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

There's evidently a chance that he's cleared this morning, but fantasy owners should plan on being without him for now. Mixon's absence would again leave RB Samaje Perine in a feature role. He racked up 17 carries and 7 targets last week. Check out the updated projections for Cincinnati's backfield.

HC Zac Taylor confirmed on Friday morning that Mixon is still in concussion protocol and said that the team is “taking it on a 12-hour by 12-hour basis.” We’ll see if Mixon is able to clear concussion protocol by Sunday. If not, Samaje Perine will again operate as Cincinnati's workhorse.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Titans. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 13. His absence leaves Samaje Perine as Cincinnati's lead back, although the matchup against Tennessee's 5th-ranked RB defense makes him as more of a low-end RB2 in fantasy lineups. Chris Evans is set to return from his knee injury and should operate as the #2 RB on Sunday.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon remains in concussion protocol, HC Zac Taylor said Wednesday. Mixon still has an outside chance to be cleared for this weekend's game vs. the Titans, but fantasy owners should be planning on being without him for Week 12 for now.
