Joe Mixon (ankle) 'should get full workload' for Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) "should get a full workload" in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions, head coach Zac Taylor said.

What It Means:

Mixon was surprisingly active last week, but he only handled 11 touches and ran nine pass routes while being out-snapped by Samaje Perine 41-19. The Bengals have since placed Perine on the reserve/COVID-19 list, so Mixon could be in line for a busy afternoon in a plus matchup. Chris Evans is next in line if Mixon were to aggravate his ankle injury on Sunday.

Mixon is currently the RB6 in numberFire's weekly fantasy rankings and our models project him for a full workload on Sunday, with 22.7 touches for 108.6 offensive yards and 16.2 FanDuel points. The Lions are allowing the fourth-most FanDuel points per game to the running back position this season.
