|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 in for a bellcow role?|
Bengals RB missed 10 games in 2020

|Assuming health, this will be the largest workload of Joe Mixon’s career. Tag an extra 15-20 receptions to his previous totals by virtue of Giovani Bernard being gone. You will see Samaje Perine give him a breather for maybe a series or two a game. I’d expect Chris Evans to earn a portion of the pass situation plays as the year progresses. But for the most part, this will be all about him. (The Athletic)|
FFToday's Take: Bengals beat writer Paul Dehner Jr. believes Mixon is in for a bellcow type role this season, which has been the sentiment since the early off-season. Mixon missed 10 games last year with a foot injury but it's easy to see Cincinnati running a lot of 11 personnel with their three wide receivers, C.J. Uzomah at TE and Mixon in the backfield.
