RB - CIN
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon carried the ball 15 times for 72 yards and added one yard on five receptions in a 23-20 loss to the Rams in Super Bowl LVI. Mixon also threw a six-yard touchdown pass to Tee Higgins in the second quarter.
Mixon pieced together a decent game but wasn't on the field for Cincy's final two plays of the contest as the Bengals instead turned to Samaje Perine. His evening was salvaged by his touchdown pass, which came on a trick play in the second quarter. Mixon's 2021 will be remembered as the season where he finally capitalized on all of his potential. Locked into a workhorse role for the Bengals, Mixon will be a solid RB1 in 2022.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon carried the ball 21 times for 88 yards and added 27 yards on three catches in a 27-24 overtime win over the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game on Sunday.
Mixon ripped off a long run of 23 yards in the comeback win over Kansas City. The veteran running back didn't have a huge game and he was vultured by Samaje Perine, who caught a touchdown pass from Joe Burrow in the game. Mixon has been an integral piece in a dangerous Cincinnati offense this season and has been handling heavy workloads for the Bengals in the playoffs. He will now play in his first Super Bowl as he waits to see whether he will take on the Rams or the 49ers.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon carried the ball 14 times for 54 yards and a touchdown in a 19-16 win over the Titans in the Divisional Round of the playoffs on Saturday. He added 51 yards on six catches.
Mixon came up big for the Bengals, scoring his team's only touchdown on an impressive 16-yard run in the third quarter. The veteran running back will remain a solid piece of the Cincy offense in the AFC Championship game next weekend.
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon carried the ball 17 times for 48 yards and added 28 yards on four catches in a 26-19 Wild Card win over the Raiders on Saturday.
Mixon saw the majority of the backfield work but was unable to get much going against the Las Vegas defense, although he salvaged his day with his contribution in the passing attack. Despite the slow outing, Mixon will remain a top-tier fantasy running back for the Divisional Round next week.
Joe Mixon has tested positive for COVID-19 and will not play in Sunday's season finale against the Browns.
The Bengals have nothing to play for anyway with the AFC North title wrapped up, so it was possible that Mixon would have sat regardless. The team has had several positive tests over the last day or two, so fantasy managers should brace themselves for more. But, in the meantime, those playing into Week 18 should add Samaje Perine to their rosters.
