Joe Mixon Fantasy Football News 2019

The Bengals have officially named Zac Taylor their HC. The marriage has been set for about a month, but the announcement had to wait until the Rams' season was over. Taylor spent the past 2 years working under Sean McVay, but it's unclear exactly how big a hand he had in the scheme or game-planning. Taylor has just 5 games of experience as an NFL OC, all with Miami back in 2015. The Fins averaged 17 points in those 5 contests. Taylor was the University of Cincinnati's OC in 2016, "leading" the Bearcats to a 106th-place finish in total offense.

The Bengals have fired HC Marvin Lewis. He's been the boss in Cincinnati for 16 seasons, compiling a 131-122-3 record. Lewis' squad made the playoffs 7 times but never got a postseason victory. Cincinnati went 19-28-1 over the past 3 seasons. We're already hearing Hue Jackson mentioned as a potential replacement for Lewis. Poor Bengals fans.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) isn’t listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. That foot shouldn’t be an issue, but a crumbling Bengals offense makes Mixon more of a RB2 in Sunday’s game against the Chargers.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We've heard nothing to suggest that he's in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Chargers, but he won't be at 100%. Mixon is more of a RB2 for Week 14.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon was limited in Wednesday's practice and listed with a foot issue. It's possible this is just a rest day, but it's worth noting that Mixon played a season-low 57% of the offensive snaps last week. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) is not listed on the final Week 11 injury report. He was limited on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. The knee isn't a real concern, but a tough matchup vs. the Ravens makes Mixon more of a low-end RB1 this week.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon was added to the injury report on Thursday as limited with a knee. We don't have any other details at this point, although it's certainly worth noting that Mixon missed 2 games earlier this season with a knee injury. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow. If Mixon can't play against the Ravens this weekend, Gio Bernard would step in as Cincinnati's lead back and be a viable fantasy starter.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard (knee) participated in the team's post-bye week practice on Monday. That presumably puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Saints. Bernard isn't a standalone fantasy option but is worth stashing as a high-end handcuff to RB Joe Mixon.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Bucs. He's been sidelined for 4 weeks now and doesn't look particularly close to a return. Joe Mixon will again serve as Cincinnati's feature back vs. Tampa, with Mark Walton picking up the scraps.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard (knee) is out for Sunday night’s game against the Chiefs. Joe Mixon will again be in a workhorse role, with Mark Walton as the #2 RB.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers. That'll again put Joe Mixon in a workhorse role. He played 78% of the offensive snaps and racked up 25 touches last week.

Bengals HC Marvin Lewis doesn't expect to "fully unleash" RB Joe Mixon this weekend in his first game back from a knee injury. Lewis said there will be "some limits due to conditioning taking a hit during the rehab process." Mixon tallied 22 touches in both of his first 2 games this year. Perhaps he gets 15-18 against the Dolphins on Sunday, but Mixon remains a strong fantasy play.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with a sprained MCL, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. It's at least good timing for Cincinnati with RB Joe Mixon ready to return from his own knee issue. Rookie Mark Walton will serve as the #2 RB while Bernard is sidelined.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) is not listed on the final injury report, so he’ll return for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins. Meanwhile, RB Gio Bernard (knee) has been ruled out. That should mean a heavy workload for Mixon, putting him right back in RB1 territory.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) was limited for the 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It sounds like he's trending toward returning for this weekend's game against the Dolphins, but we still haven't heard that he's received final clearance. Check back tomorrow for another update. RB Gio Bernard, meanwhile, has missed the first 2 practices of the week with a knee issue.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday -- his first since going down in Week 2. Mixon still hadn't received full clearance as of this morning, but it looks like he has a shot to get the green light by Sunday. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) said Wednesday morning that he still hasn't received full clearance. He added that he'll "for sure" be back for Week 6. HC Marvin Lewis seemed to suggest, though, that Mixon still has a shot to play against the Dolphins this Sunday. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his progress over the next few days.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. He didn’t practice at all this week but has reportedly resumed running and cutting. Mixon has a shot to be back for Week 5. Gio Bernard gets another game as Cincinnati’s feature back on Sunday and is a RB1 in fantasy lineups.
