News: 6 hours agoMixon (ankle), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest at Detroit, is expected to handle a "normal" workload this weekend, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Spin: Mixon came out of Week 4 with what was termed a low-grade ankle sprain at the time. He didn't practice at all last week, but after putting in a positive workout last Saturday he began to trend in the right direction to suit up Week 5 against the Packers. Indeed, Mixon did just that, but he also handled his fewest touches in a game (11) since Week 6 of the 2019 season. He proceeded to sandwich limited sessions around a DNP on Thursday, and on Friday coach Zac Taylor implied Mixon would be back to his usual amount of work Sunday. "I think every week you come off a sprained ankle, it gets better," Taylor said. Mixon also may not have to contend for snaps with Samaje Perine, who tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday. If rookie Chris Evans is Mixon's primary backup, the latter could approach the amount of work from his 46 career starts (19.7 touches for 90.3 yards from scrimmage per game, 27 TDs).

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Mixon is entering his fifth NFL season after an injury-plagued 2020 campaign in which he was limited to six games. Mixon was busy those weeks, handling 81% of Cincinnati's carries and 12% of the targets while sitting 10th among RBs in fantasy points per game. For perspective, he handled 75% of the carries and 8% of the targets in 16 games while finishing as RB13 in 2019. Mixon is only 24 years old and has now delivered solid RB2 numbers in three-consecutive seasons. An early-down feature back with a rising target share (especially with Giovani Bernard gone) and a healthy Joe Burrow under center, Mixon's outlook is on the upswing. He's a good RB2 target with RB1 upside.
