Bengals QB Joe Burrow threw for 286 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. He found Tee Higgins and RB Chris Evans for scores, adding a rushing TD from 4 yards out to kick off the scoring. Burrow took 11 rushing attempts for 46 yards, his largest total since Week 1. Now comes a Week 14 rematch with a Cleveland team that embarrassed the Bengals in a 32-13 Week 8 win.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins caught 1 of QB Joe Burrow's 2 TD passes in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. That accompanied just 3 catches for 35 yards among 5 targets. Higgins nearly added a 2nd TD catch but just missed getting his feet down inbounds. Week 14 brings a rematch with the Browns.

Bengals RB Samaje Perine ran for 106 yards on 21 carries in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. He added 6 catches for 49 yards among 7 targets, ranking 2nd on the team in both targets and receptions. Perine watched Chris Evans claim the only RB TD, on an 8-yard catch. QB Joe Burrow supplied the team's only rushing score. We'd bet on Joe Mixon being ready to return in Week 14 (vs. Cleveland) after missing the past 2 games with a concussion.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase returned from 4 games off for a hip injury to lead the Bengals in targets (8), receptions (7) and receiving yards (97) in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. Chase now gets his 1st matchup this year with a Browns team that limited him to 6-49 receiving among 13 targets in their lone full meeting last year. (Chase played just 9 snaps in the regular-season finale, when Cincinnati benched most starters after clinching.)

Bengals TE Hayden Hurst injured his right calf in the 1st half against the Chiefs. Cincinnati initially deemed him questionable to return but quickly downgraded him to out. We'll see about Hurst's outlook for Week 14 and beyond.

Bengals LB Logan Wilson (illness) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. Use him as planned in IDP lineups.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. We haven’t heard anything about Chase’s role today. There’s certainly a chance that he’s on some type of snap count in his 1st action since Week 7, but Chase would still carry plenty of upside even then. You’d need to be loaded at WR to consider benching him in this matchup.

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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirm that Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is expected to play vs. the Chiefs today. Chase carries more risk than usual in his 1st game back from the hip injury, but he'd be tough to sit in a likely shootout. See exactly where Chase sits in the Week 13 WR Rankings.

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. ESPN's Adam Schefter isn't quite as pessimistic on Mixon's chances but confirms that he's still in the protocol. 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.

Bengals LB Logan Wilson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs because of an illness. He missed Friday's practice after not showing up on the injury report the previous 2 days. The team has deemed him day-to-day. We'll see about Wilson's status Sunday.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Chiefs. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and is “on track” to return for this one, HC Zac Taylor said Friday. Chase can be penciled back into Week 13 fantasy lineups. Chiefs-Bengals doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET, but we should get an update on his status on Sunday morning.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Chiefs. He was limited in practice all week. 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) was limited again in Thursday's practice. It means that he still hasn't fully cleared the protocol. We're still tentatively expecting Mixon to play vs. the Chiefs this weekend, but we'll continue to keep you updated on his progress.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He's fully expected to return for this weekend's game vs. the Chiefs, but we'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He still has some work to do to clear the protocol, but Mixon is trending toward returning for this weekend's game vs. the Chiefs. We'll get another update on his progress on Thursday afternoon.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He confirmed afterward that he's planning to play vs. the Chiefs this weekend. "We're going to see how I feel later in the week, but I'm expecting to take some reps," Chase said. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his status, but Chase can be penciled into Week 13 fantasy lineups.

We'll watch the status of Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase throughout this week, but it sure sounds like he's ready to get back to a full-time role. "I don't have no pain," he told reporters Wednesday, according to ESPN's Ben Baby. We'll take this as good news rather than a subtle linguistic clue that Chase does have some pain. Expect to start Chase in your fantasy football lineups against the Chiefs' rookie perimeter CBs this weekend.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor said RB Joe Mixon would be practicing with the team today, according to NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe. Completing a practice is reportedly the final step for Mixon to get through the league concussion protocol, which would return him for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. We'll keep watching to confirm his status, but expect to have Mixon back in fantasy football lineups this week.
