Joe Mixon (ankle) to receive a full workload in Week 6, per Zac Taylor

Bengals coach Zac Taylor says RB Joe Mixon (ankle) will play on Sunday and receive a full workload.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy managers can breathe a sigh of relief. Mixon didn't receive a full workload in Week 5 against the Packers, but he should be all systems go for Sunday's Week 6 matchup against the Lions. Consider him a low-end RB1 in a plus matchup.

Joe Mixon (ankle) did not practice on Thursday

Joe Mixon (ankle) did not practice on Thursday after returning to practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

This one is interesting as we are not 100% sure if this is precautionary or not. But odds are, this ankle injury is lingering with Joe Mixon. Tomorrow will be a crucial day for his Week 6 status, but it will be interesting to see if they are going to push Mixon back, or give him a full week to rest up.

Joe Mixon (ankle) practicing on Wednesday

Bengals RB Joe Mixon (ankle) is practicing on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Mixon played just 28% of the Bengals' offensive snaps in Week 5 against the Packers, but one would figure he'll return to full-time status this Sunday. Practicing on Wednesday is certainly a good sign. It seems as if he avoided any further injury to his ankle.

Fantasy Impact

Mixon came into the contest nursing an ankle injury and he wound up splitting touches with Samaje Perine, who drew 15 touches. The good news is that Mixon emerged from the loss without further injuring his ankle. He will take on the Lions in Week 6.

Joe Mixon (ankle) officially active for Week 5 vs. Green Bay

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) is officially active for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Mixon will play Sunday’s game against Green Bay after participating in Saturday’s practice. The 25-year-old has rushed for 353 yards on 83 attempts and two touchdowns over four games in 2021. Cincinnati could limit Mixon’s touches on Sunday, making him a risky play in Week 5. RB Samaje Perine would see an uptick in snaps if the Bengals reduce Mixon’s usage on Sunday. Mixon is currently 47th among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings.
