|With long-time Bengal Gio Bernard shown the door, Perine, the castoff from Washington steps into the backup role behind Mixon. Other than flashing against lowly Houston for a meaningless Week 16 game last year, Perine has put very little good football on tape in his career. I'm frankly floored that Cinci didn't infuse this backfield with a little more talent behind Mixon, but they feel strongly about what Perine brings. If you are a Mixon owner desperate for a handcuff, Samaje is your guy.
| Joe Mixon expected to play|
Missed practice this week

|#Bengals RB Joe Mixon, who didn’t practice this week but did work out on Saturday, is expected to play today, source said. He won’t be 100%, but Mixon is slated to go vs. the #Packers. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: There's a risk that Mixon may not get his full workload and we'll likely see more of Samaje Perine and Chris Evans against the Packers this week. Consider Mixon a risky Flex option in Week 5.
| Joe Mixon considered week-to-week with sprained ankle|
Low-grade ankle sprain

|Bengals’ RB Joe Mixon was diagnosed with a low-grade ankle sprain that will leave him week to week, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Samaje Perine is the next man up and will be fantasy relevant as long as Mixon is out. He'll be a popular waiver wire pick in Week 5. The Bengals have GB, @DET and @BAL on their upcoming schedule.
