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.
Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official website reports that RB Joe Mixon has been battling a stomach bug over the last 24 hours. "Keep an eye on his workload – not yet known how much he will play today against the Dolphins," Contipelli adds. Mixon was set up beautifully in a workhorse role in a plus matchup. Now that volume is less certain. We've bumped Mixon down the Week 16 Rankings, but his upside keeps him in RB1 territory.
Bengals RB Joe Mixon (calf) isn't listed on the final Week 16 injury report. He was added to the injury report and limited on Thursday but returned to a full practice on Friday. ESPN's Ben Baby confirms that Mixon is expected to have "no issues" in Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Mixon is a legitimate RB1 in that matchup.
Bengals RB Joe Mixon was limited in Thursday's practice by a calf injury. We don't have any details beyond that, so it's unclear if Mixon is in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Dolphins. We'll know more when Cincinnati releases its final injury report on Friday afternoon. But for now, it'd be a good idea to stash Gio Bernard, who will serve as the Bengals' lead back in a plus matchup if Mixon is out.
Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and was reportedly a game-time decision. Mixon’s snaps might be limited, and there’s always some risk of an in-game aggravation with ankle sprains. It makes him more of a risk/reward RB2 for Week 2.
The Bengals are "optimistic" that Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) will be able to play against the 49ers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Both Rapoport and ESPN's Adam Schefter suggest that a final decision on Mixon's status won't be made until he goes through pre-game warmups. We'll get Cincinnati's inactives by noon ET. If active, Mixon will be a risk/reward fantasy play at less than 100%.
We know that the Jags aren't too excited about Fournette. Will his workload suffer as a result?9:07am EDT 7/31/20 Read More
