2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Scooping up the scraps left when Mixon needs a breather, Bernard is best viewed as an end of the draft handcuff. I'm baffled by the Bengals' unwillingness to improve on the talent behind Mixon, as Bernard provides a solid veteran presence, and nothing more, and it's been that way for several years now. 2019 6th round pick Trayveon Williams from Texas A&M didn't register a meaningful stat last season, but did rush for 1,700 yards and catch 27 passes during his senior season, so there is clearly some talent there. At this point Bernard is such an underwhelming handcuff that I would almost rather take a flier on Williams instead. Bottom line... don't give too much thought to this backfield beyond Mixon.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Joe Mixon Out for Week 11
No timetable for return
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 20, 1:49 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Zac confirms Joe Mixon is out this week. Making no predictions on timeline going forward. (Jay Morrison on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's another week of Giovani Bernard and Samaje Perine at running back for the Bengals. Mixon last played in Week 6 but came down with a foot injury and has no timetable for a return. Bernard is a viable RB2 in PPR leagues but expect Perine to get 8-10 touches against Washington.


Injury Joe Mixon Doubtful for Week 10
Missed practice on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 13, 2:00 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Zac Taylor says Joe Mixon (foot) is doubtful for Sunday. Geno Atkins is out for personal reasons. (Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Another missed week for Mixon which is disappointing coming off the Bengals bye. Expect Giovani Bernard to handle most of the work with Samaje Perine mixed in against the Steelers. Given the difficult matchup, Gio is the RB2 territory for Week 10.


Injury Joe Mixon in danger to miss Week 8?
Foot injury
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 26, 5:30 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) is out today and he’s considered week-to-week with this injury, meaning he could miss next vs. the #Titans too, source said. It’s Gio Bernard at RB until Mixon makes his way back. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: With Cincinnati sitting at 1-5-1 and looking at a Week 9 bye, it makes little sense for the Bengals to bring Mixon back before he feels right again. Giovani Bernard produced 96 total yards and a touchdown in his absence in Week 7, although he was largely unsuccessful as a rusher (13 carries, 37 yards). Another reason to sit Mixon: the Bengals are unlikely to hang with the Titans.


Injury Joe Mixon out for Week 7 with foot injury
Giovani Bernard becomes viable RB2
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 23, 12:01 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals' RB Joe Mixon ruled out of Sunday's game vs. Browns. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mixon left last week's game with a foot injury but later returned and finished the game. With Mixon out against the Browns look for Giovani Bernard, Trayveon Williams and Samaje Perine all to be active this week. Gio is the obvious fantasy play, checking in as a viable RB2.


Injury Joe Mixon misses practice Wednesday
Foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 21, 1:00 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Looks like usual Wednesday vet days for Dunlap and Atkins. Joe Mixon is not practicing but is out here watching. (Jay Morrison on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mixon left for a short bit in Week 6 with a foot injury but eventually returned. His practice status will be monitored closely throughout the week. Giovani Bernard would get a bump if Mixon were to miss Week 7 against the Browns.


Injury Joe Mixon added to injury report, listed as Questionable
Chest injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 3, 10:33 am

Cincinnati Bengals
Joe Mixon popped up as a late add to the injury report with a chest injury today. He’s listed as questionable. This is obviously concerning, so look for an expanded role for Giovani Bernard or perhaps needing to take on the whole thing against the Jaguars. (Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Just what we need, another high-profile player dealing with an injury. Fantasy owners will need to keep an eye on Mixon's status tomorrow morning.
