Mixon has been limited in practice this week, and while he may play, this seems to be Gio's backfield at the moment, so you would be better off avoiding the headache of seeing your running back total just 8 to 12 touches.

At this point, Mixon should be well-rested and ready to rock against the Lions, who have now allowed 14 rushing touchdowns on the season, including 11 of them in their last nine games, which is behind only the Bills. The Bengals have to stay competitive in this game in order for Mixon to have an RB1 ceiling, which could prove to be a chore for them after watching the last two games. Meanwhile, the Lions are in a playoff race and trying to win a wild card berth. If Mixon suits up, you have to play him as a high-end RB2 who should score.
