  • Posted: 12/9/2018 6:20pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 26 times for 111 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes for 27 yards in a 26-21 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Mixon has now topped 80 rushing yards in three straight games, and he is seeing plenty of work as one of Cincinnati's few healthy weapons. He's a strong RB2 option heading into a Week 15 matchup with Oakland.

  • Posted: 12/7/2018 4:29pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Mixon has been playing well over the last few weeks and should continue to receive plenty of touches because of the quarterback situation. He should be considered a No. 2 running back in all leagues despite the matchup.

  • Posted: 12/7/2018 10:35am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) looked good in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is expected to play in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Mixon has been a bright spot in the battered and sluggish Cincy offense, and despite the Bengals' status as heavy road underdogs Sunday against the host Chargers, Mixon is still worthy of high-end RB2 starting consideration.

  • Posted: 12/6/2018 10:26am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) participated in practice for a second straight day Thursday, Dec. 6. He was limited the previous day with a foot injury.

    Huddle Up: There was no setback Thursday for Mixon, keeping him on track as a high-end RB2 play against the Chargers in Week 14.

  • Posted: 12/5/2018 12:40pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: Mixon pops up on the injury report every now and then, but this issue doesn't seem to be serious enough for him to miss time. Practicing fully over the next couple of days would be ideal, but he's a fringe RB1 nonetheless.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 3:01pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon racked up 12 carries for 82 yards in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos and he added two grabs for 13 yards.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a terrible day for Mixon, especially with the Bengals getting away from the run in the second half. He remains a decent low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 14 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 3:36pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 14 times for 89 yards in the Week 12 game against the Cleveland Browns with seven grabs for 66 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: The 155 total scrimmage yardage marked a season high, as his previous best was 149 total yards back in Week 1 at Indianapolis. Mixon has been rather erratic from a fantasy perspective, but he is a decent low-end RB2 heading into Week 13 against the Denver Broncos, a team which has allowed a pair of runner to go over 200 rushing yards this season.

  • Posted: 11/23/2018 7:17pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon said he is tired of playing 'not to lose' and tired of playing scared. 'We just got to go out there, and we got to go win,' Mixon said.

    Huddle Up: Mixon was bottled up by Baltimore last time out, but his heavy workload should have him back in the RB2 mix against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 2:48pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed for 14 yards and one touchdown on 12 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11. He also caught three passes for 38 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Mixon was facing a tough Ravens defense this week, so owners should look for a bounce back performance next week. He should be considered a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/16/2018 9:13am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) was seen fully participating in the team's walkthrough Friday, Nov. 16, and 'looks like all systems go' for Week 11, according to a beat reporter.

    Huddle Up: After he suddenly was listed as limited Thursday, Mixon needed to trend the other way Friday, and it looks like that was indeed the case. Plug him in as a RB2 Sunday in a tough divisional matchup against the Ravens.

  • Posted: 11/15/2018 11:06am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 15, because of a knee injury.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if he is in any danger of missing the Week 11 game. He has posted solid numbers over the last few weeks and would be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he is able to play.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 1:48pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 11 times for 61 yards in the Week 10 game against the New Orleans Saints and he added 24 yards on two receptions.

    Huddle Up: Mixon had a pretty decent afternoon considering the Bengals were tuned up and they abandoned the run rather early. Still, it wasn't a great fantasy performance and he remains more of a low-end RB2 heading into Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 4:39pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 21 times for a career-high 123 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 8 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added three grabs for 15 yards.

    Huddle Up: Mixon recorded his first-career multi-score performance and the yardage total was a career best. Fantasy owners have to be pleased with what they saw in this one. He is back to low-end RB2 or flex fantasy status heading into Week 10 after the team's bye.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 10:08pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon ran 13 times for 50 yards in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He added three catches for one yard.

    Huddle Up: Not exactly what fantasy owners were hoping for against one of the worst defenses in the league. To his credit, very little of the blame falls on Mixon, who was basically a victim of game flow after the Chiefs built a 31-point lead early in the third quarter. Mixon will be on the RB1/RB2 borderline in Week 8 when the Bengals host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 2:42pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 11 times for 64 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he added four grabs for 20 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Mixon was leading the backfield with Giovani Bernard sidelined and he didn't have any setbacks with the knee injury which forced him out last month. The Bengals travel to meet the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 2:46pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed for 93 yards on 22 carries against the Miami Dolphins in Week 5. He also caught three passes for 22 yards and one touchdown during the game.

    Huddle Up: Mixon received most of the work at running back with Giovani Bernard sidelined and played well despite the extra work. He should be considered a No. 2 running back next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

  • Posted: 10/6/2018 6:34pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) will have some limits to his workload against the Miami Dolphins in Week 5 because his conditioning has suffered a bit following knee surgery, head coach Marvin Lewis said.

    Huddle Up: While Mixon might see a reduction in his workload, it probably won't be much of one since Giovani Bernard is sidelined. Don't hesitate to deploy Mixon as a solid RB2.

  • Posted: 10/5/2018 10:56am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) practiced fully Friday, Oct. 5, and will not appear on the team's Week 5 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Mixon had 22 touches in each of his first two games this season prior to his injury, and that looks like a safe bet again Sunday with fellow RB Giovani Bernard out and Mixon facing a Dolphins defense yielding the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing backs so far.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 11:32am ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Mixon is coming back from knee surgery but may need to play with Giovani Bernard also dealing with an injury. He can be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he plays but would come with some risk.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 8:55am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) is practicing Thursday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Mixon is an RB1 against the Miami Dolphins, which rank in the bottom five against the position.

  • Posted: 10/3/2018 2:18pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: Seemingly out of nowhere it looks like Mixon will be on the field Sunday morning. The Miami Dolphins have been kind to running backs too, so if Mixon sees his full allotment of touches he carries RB1 upside.

  • Posted: 10/3/2018 9:48am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) is expected to play in Week 5, in the opinion of beat writer Paul Dehner Jr. He has yet to be cleared, though.

    Huddle Up: Mixon would be a solid RB1 start against a Miami Dolphins team in the bottom five at defending the position.

  • Posted: 9/28/2018 9:29am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) will miss a second straight game as he was ruled out Friday, Sept. 28, for the Week 4 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here as Mixon was expected to miss a couple of weeks following his injury in Week 2, leaving Giovani Bernard with a juicy matchup against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

  • Posted: 9/27/2018 9:13am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: It will be Giovani Bernard's backfield again this week. Mixon has a chance to return next week, but a full recovery may take at least another week or two. As for Week 4, Bernard demands low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 consideration as a bigger bonus in PPR scoring.

  • Posted: 9/26/2018 2:46pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 26.

    Huddle Up: Mixon was expected to miss multiple weeks and he has sat for just one game, so fantasy owners shouldn't be holding out hope he'll be back in Week 4. It's the Gio Bernard show until Mixon can return. Keep him reserved in all fantasy leagues until Mixon can officially return, knock off the rust and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 8:22am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) may be available to play in Week 4, according to sources. He is feeling much better since the surgery and may play if his incision heals before the game.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor his practice participation next week to see if he will be able to play in Week 4. He will be a weekly starting option once he is able to return to the field.

  • Posted: 9/15/2018 9:54am ET

    Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Saturday, Sept. 15, and is expected to be sidelined for two to four weeks, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Mixon will miss at least one game because of the injury and could miss more depending on his recovery. Giovani Bernard should take over the starting job for now and can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in all leagues.

  • Posted: 9/14/2018 2:28pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) will have a small particle removed from his knee Saturday, Sept. 15, according to a source. He is expected to miss two weeks.

    Huddle Up: This is a little bit of a sigh of relief given the initial scare. Mixon owners can cancel the scurried trade offers they sent for Giovani Bernard, although Bernard's value massively increases over the next two weeks. Simply put Mixon in an IR slot and claim Bernard if he's available.

  • Posted: 9/14/2018 1:54pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) may need to undergo arthroscopic surgery on the knee he injured in Week 2, which would sideline him for an undisclosed period of time, according to sources. Mixon is scheduled to receive a second opinion on his knee.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation because Mixon likely would miss several weeks if he undergoes surgery. Giovani Bernard probably would take over as the starting running back if Mixon is sidelined and could be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option.

  • Posted: 9/13/2018 8:31pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) returned to the game for a second time Thursday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Mixon not only managed to get back in, he returned with a fury, promptly notching two rushes for more than 10 yards in his first drive back in the game. He's now registered a respectable performance after it looked like he might hang a dud following his standout Week 1 showing. He should unquestionably be in all lineups as long as he can stay healthy.

  • Posted: 9/13/2018 8:27pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) rushed 21 times for 84 yards Thursday, Sept. 13, against the Baltimore Ravens. Mixon left the game more than once with an apparent knee injury. He finished with one reception for three yards.

    Huddle Up: Mixon will have a few extra days to heal before the Bengals take on the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Sept. 23. The injury did not appear to be hampering him much in the fourth quarter.

  • Posted: 9/13/2018 8:13pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) had to exit for a second time during the team's game Thursday, Sept. 13, versus the Baltimore Ravens due to a right knee injury. He's considered questionable to return this time.

    Huddle Up: Despite it being a close game, the Bengals may opt to keep Mixon sidelined this time, since it's the same knee he banged up earlier in the contest. The second-year tailback tallied 48 yards on 14 carries along with a three-yard reception before coming out.

  • Posted: 9/13/2018 6:15pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) returned to the game Thursday, Sept. 13, after missing just one series.

    Huddle Up: Fortunately, Mixon left only very briefly and was given some rush attempts right away upon his return. He's exhibited early RB1 potential for all fantasy leagues and is thriving on being the team's workhorse.

  • Posted: 9/13/2018 5:59pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) sustained a right knee injury in the team's Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 13, opposite the Baltimore Ravens but is being considered probable to return.

    Huddle Up: Mixon didn't seem to be shaken up or anything after failing to get into the end zone from one yard out prior to his injury being announced. Thus, expect him to return to the contest sooner than later.

  • Posted: 9/10/2018 12:30pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon could receive up to 22 carries in future games this season, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

    Huddle Up: Mixon's star shone bright in Week 1, albeit against a weaker defense in the Indianapolis Colts. His involvement in the passing game was also encouraging. The sophomore back deserves to be mentioned among the low-end RB1s going forward.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 1:23pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon carried 17 times for 95 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 victory against the Indianapolis Colts. He also added five receptions for 54 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Mixon dominated the backfield touches, as he has a total of 22 touches to just two for Giovani Bernard, his nearest competition. That's music to the ears of fantasy owners, who hate RB committees. There is no such thing in the Queen City, at least after Week 1. It's a quick turnaround for Mixon and the Bengals, who host the Ravens in Week 2 on Thursday night.

  • Posted: 8/16/2018 12:22pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (undisclosed) participated in practice Thursday, Aug. 16, despite leaving practice early Wednesday, Aug. 15.

    Huddle Up: Mixon appears to be fine and could play in the team's next preseason game. He likely will be the main running back for the Bengals this season and can be considered a No. 2 running back on most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/15/2018 2:32pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (undisclosed) left practice early Wednesday, Aug. 15, walking off under his own power and without a trainer. He did not return from the locker room.

    Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Mixon suffered an injury, needed a restroom break or was just taken off as a precaution with weather in the area. We'll keep on top of Mixon's absence and let you know the latest when more details emerge.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 6:33pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed three times for nine yards and caught a 24-yard touchdown pass against the Chicago Bears in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 9.

    Huddle Up: Slated to lead the Cincinnati backfield, the second-year back should be a high-end RB2 in standard formats.

  • Posted: 7/19/2018 9:33am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon has shed weight this offseason, going from 230 pounds to 218 pounds. 'I feel like that's where I play my best,' Mixon said. 'I was trying to get last year but I wasn't able to make it. I feel real good. My body feels real good. I feel like I'm in really good shape.'

    Huddle Up: This is the kind of stuff you want to hear during the offseason. Mixon held his own as a rookie behind a suspect line, but he was considered by and large to be a disappointment. With an improved line and an improved physique, Mixon is primed to reach low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 status.

  • Posted: 6/24/2018 8:33pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon should break 1,000 yards behind a revamped offensive line this season, in the opinion of Gil Brandt of NFL.com.

    Huddle Up: Mixon struggled with efficiency as a rookie, but he still finished with 913 yards from scrimmage while starting just seven games. As the unquestioned starter in 2018, he should at least provide RB2 production.

  • Posted: 4/16/2018 2:48pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon has decreased his weight to 225 pounds this offseason after weighing in at 238 pounds last offseason. The sophomore running back plans to lose five more pounds before the season begins.

    Huddle Up: Mixon held his own behind a subpar offensive line as a rookie. With an improved line and improve physique, Mixon should be ready to better his numbers in his second year. As it stands, Mixon can be drafted as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 despite yielding touches to Giovani Bernard.

  • Posted: 12/31/2017 12:25pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 17 game.

    Huddle Up: Mixon may have to share playing time with Giovani Bernard because of Bernard production over the last few weeks. Mixon could be a flex option in some leagues but is not a must-start option.

  • Posted: 12/31/2017 5:13am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) is still considered a game-time decision for Week 17's game against the Baltimore Ravens, although he is expected to be active. He wants to test the injury during pregame warmups before an official decision is made.

    Huddle Up: Mixon was officially listed as questionable on the injury report but was a limited practice participant during the team's two final sessions during the week. If he is active, he should be viewed as nothing more than a flex option.

  • Posted: 12/29/2017 12:39pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 29, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Mixon may be a game-time decision for Week 17, so owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days. He will be a risky option for owners because he could be limited if he plays. Fantasy owners may want consider to healthier options for their lineups this week.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 10:24am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 16 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Mixon was just returning from a concussion and is now sidelined with an ankle injury. Owners should keep an eye on the situation to see if Mixon will be able to return to the game. Giovani Bernard would take over as the starter if Mixon is out and could be a flex option.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 1:47pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) practiced in full for a third straight day Friday, Dec. 22, and he has been removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Mixon appears to be in line for his regular workload in the penultimate game of the regular season so start him as you normally would as a low-end RB2 or flex option.

  • Posted: 12/21/2017 1:19pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: There's no reason to believe Mixon won't see his normal workload after back-to-back full practices, unless the Bengals just want to preserve him more heading into the offseason. As of now, Mixon is in the RB2 conversation.

  • Posted: 12/20/2017 1:23pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: Apparently Mixon has cleared the concussion protocol after all. It may be too late for some fantasy owners, but the rookie can be plugged right back into starting lineups in what is a phenomenal matchup against the Detroit Lions.

  • Posted: 12/16/2017 12:19pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) has not cleared the concussion protocol yet and will not be able to play in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Giovani Bernard will receive most of the work at running back with Mixon sidelined. He is coming off a solid Week 14 performance and can be a flex option for owners.
