2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
Like many guys on this offense, Mixon enjoyed a career year in 2021. His 292 attempts, 1.205 rushing yards, 314 receiving yards, and 16 total touchdowns were all career bests, even as Mixon ran behind one of the worst lines in the NFL. Efficiency has been a major problem for Mixon in his career, but that should change big time this season, as Cincinnati added three major pieces in free agency. Mixon should again dominate carries, so the floor there is safe. The biggest concern comes in the passing game, as the coaching staff seemed to lack trust in Mixon on 3rd downs and obvious passing situations, famously culminating in the sloppy final two plays in the Super Bowl. Samaje Perine and Chis Evans have both proved to be capable receivers, so a drop in Mixon's 42 receptions wouldn't be a surprise. An improved line, and the complete absence of stacked boxes should pave the way for Mixon to pile up numbers on the ground, but a diminished role in the passing game, and potential touchdown regression push him out of the top 5, but still in the top-10 in all formats.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Joe Mixon should get cleared to practice soon
Missed last two games in concussion protocol
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 5, 6:20 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Zac says Joe Mixon has a chance to clear concussion protocol. (Bengals.com - Geoff Hobson)

FFToday's Take: Mixon was close enough to playing Sunday that the team kept the door open for him to clear protocol until early Sunday afternoon. Samaje Perine was very good while handling the overwhelming majority of volume in his absence. Mixon was limited in practice all of last week, so it would surprising if isn't a full-go by Wednesday or Thursday. He will be a solid RB1 option against the Browns in the likely event he plays, while Perine will be a back-end RB1 option if Mixon sits out a third straight contest.


Injury Joe Mixon remains in concussion protocol
Status for Week 13 uncertain
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 3, 11:42 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Doctors still have not cleared Bengals’ RB Joe Mixon to play Sunday vs. the Chiefs, per source. Mixon remains in concussion protocol and would have to be cleared Sunday to play vs. the Chiefs. If Mixon cannot play, the Bengals would lean once again on RB Samaje Perine. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Players typically in the concussion protocol get cleared on Saturday but that didn't happen in Mixon's case. Ian Rapoport suggested that Mixon is a long-shot to play. The Bengals-Chiefs don't kick off until late afternoon so hopefully we get more clarity this morning.


Injury Joe Mixon, Ja'Marr Chase limited on Thursday
Both trending towards playing Week 13
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 1, 4:01 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) and RB Joe Mixon (concussion) both remained limited at practice today. (Ben Baby on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mixon still needs to clear the concussion protocol, which includes him practicing throughout the week without issues. Assuming that happens, he should be good to go for the matchup against the Chiefs. Chase is expected to play as well. We should get a read this weekend on any limitations that may be placed on Chase.


Injury Joe Mixon Out, Ja'Marr Chase listed as Questionable
Samaje Perine expected to start at RB
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 25, 12:46 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
#Bengals coach Zac Taylor told reporters RB Joe Mixon (concussion) is out for Sunday vs. the #Titans, while WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) will be a game-time decision. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Mixon out, expect Samaje Perine to start and get the bulk of the running back duties against the Titans. Tennessee represents a negative matchup for running backs, allowing the 4th fewest fantasy points to the position making Perine more of a volume-based RB2. Chase seems to be on the right side of questionable with his hip injury. Whether or not he will be on a snap count is unclear.


Injury Joe Mixon misses practice Thursday, Chase limited
Bengals stars in a race to get cleared for Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 24, 3:00 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion) did not practice for the second straight day, according to the injury report. Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase (hip) was limited for the second straight day. (Ben Baby on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There's been optimism surrounding Chase since the beginning of the week but we'll have a better idea of his true status after practice Friday. Same with Mixon who is dealing with a concussion, although it's seems ominous that he is not practicing. If Mixon misses, then Samaje Perine will hold RB2 value against the Titans.
