Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon could be released in the offseason following comments from director of player personnel Duke Tobin, who told reporters Tuesday, Feb. 28, that he did not know if Mixon would be on the roster next season.
Huddle Up: While Mixon getting released has been discussed by outsiders, this is the first time someone associated with the team has mentioned the possibility. The Bengals could rework Mixon's contract to save some money and keep him on the roster, but the $7.3 million of cap space his release would free up would go a long way in helping the team extend Tee Higgins and Joe Burrow. If he remains with the Bengals, Mixon figures to remain a low-end RB1 in fantasy. If not, he could be more of a middling RB2.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon could be a cap casualty this offseason, The Athletic's Jay Morrison wrote on Saturday, Feb. 25.
Huddle Up: Such a move would save the Bengals nearly $7.3 million in 2023, which is a significant chunk of change when you think about the extensions Cincy might be handing out over the next few years to WRs Tee Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase, and QB Joe Burrow. Chances are Mixon stays on his current deal or a reworked one, as he's grown to be an important piece of the offense. Mixon's stock could take a hit if he's cut, as he'd likely be joining a worse offense than the elite one he'd be leaving. Assuming nothing changes, Mixon is a borderline RB1 in 2023.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon had the charge of aggravated menacing dismissed by a judge in Hamilton County court Friday, Feb. 3. The prosecutor asked for a dismissal to allow for further investigation. The prosecutor also noted that the charge could be refiled in the future.
Huddle Up: In short, Mixon is temporarily out of hot water pending further investigation, although that could change if further investigation supports the victim's allegations. Mixon was accused of pointing a gun at a woman in downtown Cincinnati last month and threatening to shoot her. From strictly a fantasy perspective, Mixon's dynasty value is in the tank as a soon-to-be 27-year-old back that appeared to decline on the field last year and may now have a serious off-field matter hanging over him.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 11 times for just 27 yards and a touchdown in Week 18 against the Baltimore Ravens, while adding five receptions for 41 yards on his five targets.
Huddle Up: Mixon's stat line was concerning, although he salvaged things with the rushing score and reception total. He could have another difficult day in the AFC wild-card round, as the Bengals face the Ravens again next week. His performance here is worth remembering for postseason fantasy pools and DFS next weekend.
