View RB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Perine’s carries per game decreased by 0.5 (from 3.9 to 3.4) in his 2nd full season with the Bengals.
  • 22 of his 55 carries for the regular season came in consecutive outings (sandwiching a Week 6 inactive). Joe Mixon entered the first of those games questionable (ankle) and saw his 2 smallest playing-time shares of the year in those 2 contests.
  • Perine played no offensive snaps in the Week 18 game Mixon sat out (playoff berth clinched). Cincinnati split backfield work between Trayveon Williams and Chris Evans.
  • Evans trailed Perine by 38 carries and 14 targets in his rookie campaign. Evans drew praise last summer for his receiving work.
  • Bengals HC Zac Taylor said Monday that RB Samaje Perine has a “leg up” in the competition to be the 3rd-down back.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Cincinnati committed more to Joe Mixon on the ground throughout last season than it had previously under HC Zac Taylor, and Mixon’s receiving work picked up late in the year. There’s likely not enough room for another RB to be worth a fantasy look in any format as long as Mixon’s healthy. And it’s not clear heading into camp that Perine would assume lead-back touches even if Mixon goes down. Even on a handcuff level, you can find better late-draft RB options.

Joe Mixon, RB CIN

16 minutes ago

Mixon practicing; return near

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.

Bengals RB Samaje Perine garnered 24 opportunities in the team's win at Tennessee Sunday. He predictably had trouble with rushing efficiency against the league's top run defense, gaining 58 yards on 17 carries (3.4 per rush) with a long run of 9. But Perine found the end from 7 yards out to make his fantasy day. He added 4 catches for 35 yards on 7 targets for a nice PPR line. Trayveon Williams worked as the #2 RB -- with Joe Mixon out -- carrying twice for 18 yards and catching 1 of 2 targets for 24 yards. RB Chris Evans played just 4 snaps. We'll see about the status of Mixon (concussion) for Week 13.

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 (concussion) did not practice on Thursday. He's now a big long shot to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Titans. Look for Samaje Perine to operate as Cincinnati's lead back in that one.
