Fantasy Impact:

We didn't think the Bengals would play Mixon this week in a meaningless game with an ankle injury, but he's indeed active. He isn't 100% and we think he's more of a serviceable starter. Bernard should see a nice workload, too.

Scouting Report

Week 16 vs. Detroit Lions

Joe Mixon hasn't suited up since Week 13 due to concussion issues, but has practiced this week and is poised to return to action. If he does, expect him to become the primary ball-carrier. He was averaging 23 touches in the two previous games before being knocked out.

Detroit is ranked 26th in aFPA to running backs so the matchup is very good. Mixon should be the best play of the Bengals running backs this week, but he still only rates as a low-end RB2 for Week 16, as Cincinnati has struggled offensively the past two games.
