  Bengals | Joe Mixon has solid outing    Sun Oct 11, 04:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed for 59 yards on 24 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5. He also caught six passes for 35 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Mixon at least bailed you out with six catches in PPR leagues in a hopeful sign that he has passed Giovani Bernard in the pecking order for targets. Mixon's floor is tolerable, but his ceiling is unlikely to come into view against the Colts next week.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (shin) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 8.

Footballguys view: Mixon is the centerpiece of what the Bengals do on offense. He came through in a big way for Fantasy GMs last week, but it's a tough matchup against the Ravens in Week 5. Ride the hot hand with Mixon as a low-end RB1.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (chest) is officially active for the team's Week 4 game.

Updating a previous story, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon is believed to be in line to play Sunday, Oct. 4, according to Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer Saturday, Oct. 3.

Footballguys view: Keep Mixon in your lineups, but add Giovani Bernard as a longer term injury hedge if he's on the waiver wire. We'll be watching Mixon to monitor the possibility of reinjury.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon added as questionable    Sat Oct 3, 11:02 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (chest) was added to the injury report Saturday, Oct. 3, as questionable for Week 4.

Footballguys view: Saturday injury report adds are never a good thing, but Mixon is still expected to play by some reports. It's good to look for Giovani Bernard on the waiver wire in any event because Mixon could have an injury prone to aggravation or he could still be declared inactive if the issue takes a turn for the worse overnight. Trayveon Williams would also get some touches if Mixon can't go.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon mediocre in Week 3    Sun Sep 27, 07:40 PM

  Bengals | Joe Mixon tallies 86 total yards on TNF    Fri Sep 18, 12:16 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon carried the ball 16 times for 46 yards during the team's Week 2 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Mixon also caught all four of his targeted passes for 40 yards.

Footballguys view: Mixon looked great on his receptions and just didn't find room to run on his carries. He has been disappointing to date, but Joe Burrow should get better as the season goes on and Mixon has played his best football in December. The sell high window has closed and you're probably just stuck with Mixon's low ceiling for an RB1 heading into a matchup with Philadelphia.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon contract details    Tue Sep 1, 05:49 PM

Updating a previous story, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon's four-year, $48-million contract extension includes a $10 million signing bonus and $1.3 million in base salary in 2020. He'll earn $8 million in base salary in 2021 and 2022, $9.4 million in 2023 and has a team option for $9.6 million in 2024.

Footballguys view: Mixon is paid and will lead the way for the Bengals offense. They'll use him as the battering ram and centerpiece of what they do offensively while rookie QB Joe Burrow gets experience at the pro level. Fantasy GMs are taking Mixon off the board at RB11 (2.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon absent Friday    Fri Aug 28, 11:37 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (migraines) is out of practice again Friday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: There is some speculation that Mixon's absences are contract related as he and the team are in negotiations, but we'll consider the migraines legitimate until we have evidence otherwise. It's understandable to have a little pause about Mixon now, but it's also reasonable to leave him at his previous spot in your rankings. Giovani Bernard would be the starter if Mixon misses time, but Trayveon Williams would also get some work.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon dealing with migraines    Thu Aug 27, 10:46 AM

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (migraines) has been absent from practice due to migraines, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Mixon is in contract negotiations with the team right now but he has been missing practice due to migraines. That should be cleared up before Week 1, but we'll have to see if Mixon can get a new deal before then. He is currently going off the board at RB9 (1.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon poised for great things in 2020?    Mon Aug 10, 01:48 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon 'could be as well-positioned as Christian McCaffrey was a year ago to explode,' according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora. According to La Canfora, head coach Zac Taylor 'truly began to understand and appreciate' Mixon's ability over the second half of last season and intends to lean on him heavily in 2020.

Footballguys view: The Bengals offense projects to be more exciting with rookie no.1 overall pick QB Joe Burrow at the helm. Burrow is a great passer but expect the team to run the ball with Mixon early and often to take the pressure off the rookie. Mixon has been a top-12 fantasy running back each of the last two seasons, and that will once again be the case. He's a late first- or early second-round pick in fantasy drafts right now.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon may see more targets    Fri Aug 7, 06:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon may receive a bigger role in the passing game this season, according to offensive coordinator Brian Callahan.

Footballguys view: Mixon should have had a larger role in the passing game last year but was still less involved than many of his lead back peers. If the Bengals offense improves with the addition of Joe Burrow, Jonah Williams, and return of AJ Green, and Mixon gets more targets, he could be a top five fantasy running back this year.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon poured it on after the bye    Sun May 24, 07:00 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed for 817 yards following the team's Week 8 bye. Only Derrick Henry ran for more yards (959) over that same span, while no back topped Mixon's 177 rushing attempts.

Footballguys view: The team is going to be built around Mixon from the jump this year. Rookie no.1 overall pick Joe Burrow has tremendous upside but the team has to help him out early by running the rock. That means Mixon should be in for a sizable workload all season long.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon proved elusive in Year 3    Mon May 11, 11:25 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon broke 61 tackles in 2019, making him one of four backs last season and one of seven backs since 2015 to top 60 in a single season.

Footballguys view: Mixon is a powerful runner and should continue to be that for the Bengals in 2020. The team is trying to work on a new long-term deal for the veteran back. Getting him locked in is great for a team with a young franchise quarterback in Joe Burrow.

  Bengals | Cincy pushing Joe Mixon extension    Sat May 9, 09:10 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon is 'the type of guy you want to lock up to a long-term deal,' according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin.

Footballguys view: Mixon is a rock and the centerpiece of what the Bengals want to do on offense. With better blocking and better quarterback play (hello Joe Burrow!) then we could see even more efficient production from Mixon in 2020. There are rumblings of Mixon preparing to hold out if the Bengals don't offer him a lucrative contract but those are just rumors at this time.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon has iron grip    Fri May 8, 01:44 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon is the only NFL running back with 500-plus carries and no fumbles since 2018, according to Pro Football Focus data.

Footballguys view: Mixon is set to be a quality late first round pick in an improved Bengals offense as long as he doesn't hold out.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon hard to handle    Wed Mar 25, 11:21 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon forced a broken tackle once every 11.6 carries in 2019 (24 on 278 rushing attempts) after doing so only once every 39.5 carries in 2018 (six on 237 rushing attempts).

Footballguys view: Mixon has always been this type of runner. He's tough to bring down when he builds a head of steam and doesn't need much room to get going. Mixon will once again be a centerpiece of the Bengals offense in 2020.

  Bengals | Cincy interested in extending Joe Mixon's contract    Sat Feb 29, 10:07 AM

The Cincinnati Bengals are interested in signing RB Joe Mixon to a contract extension, although continuing discussions about a possible new collective bargaining agreement have stalled negotiations.

Footballguys view: The Bengals have an interesting issue coming up with Mixon's contract. They might find a number on an extension that makes him one of the highest-paid running backs in the league. He is entering the final year of his current contract.
