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. He is entering the final year of his current contract.
Huddle Up: Mixon, who will turn 24 in July, rushed for 1,137 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground in 2019, along with 35 catches for 287 yards and three receiving touchdowns. He should be viewed as a high-end RB2 option for next season's fantasy drafts.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 21 times for just 50 yards in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins while adding two grabs for 23 yards.
Huddle Up: Mixon was disappointing in what should have been a favorable fantasy matchup, but instead it was the passing game that shined through instead. Mixon will look to finish up strong in Week 17 against the visiting Cleveland Browns.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (illness) is active for the team's Week 16 game, but his role is uncertain since he has been dealing with an illness, according to Bengals.com's Marisa Contipelli.
Huddle Up: Mixon has been playing well over the last few weeks but may be a risky option since he may not receive his normal workload. He probably should still be a starting option in leagues, but fantasy players could consider other options if available.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon has rushed for 136 yards and a 146 yards, respectively, in his last two games. He faces the Miami Dolphins in Week 16, and the Dolphins are allowing the second-most rushing yards per game this season.
Huddle Up: Mixon has been a different back in the second half of the season, and he has run for at least 79 yards in five of his last six games. He will have RB1 upside against one of the worst run defenses in the league.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (calf) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 20, and will carry no injury designation into Week 16.
Huddle Up: After averaging 23.8 touches per game over his last six outings and topping 100 rushing yards three times in that span, Mixon has been an RB1 over the season's second half and is a no-doubt starter Sunday in Miami.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (calf) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Mixon likely will be able to play in the Week 16 game, but fantasy players should check on his status later in the week. He should have success against the Miami Dolphins this week and can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon finished with 25 rushes for 136 yards in Week 15 against the New England Patriots while adding three grabs for 20 yards.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon finished with 23 carries, 146 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns and he added three receptions for 40 yards.
Huddle Up: The yardage total was easily his highest of the season, as his previous best was 114 yards in his only other 100-yard game Nov. 10 against Baltimore. He has scored rushing touchdowns in two straight, and three of the past four, after failing to score on the ground in his first nine. Mixon is finishing up strong for his fantasy owners, but Week 15 against the Patriots is a tough matchup.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 19 times for 44 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the New York Jets and he added four catches for 26 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Mixon failed to score a rushing touchdown in his first nine outings, but he has found the end zone on the ground in two of the past three outings. He remains a useful low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 14 at Cleveland.
