Will Joe Mixon play week 14?

Mixon (illness) missed practice all week, but Bengals coach Zac Taylor said Friday that “waiting“Mixon will face the 49ers. The editors of the Bengals’ loss suggested that Mixon’s availability will come down to a game-time decision, so this situation is still up in the air.

If Mixon is out, Samaje Perine would handle most of RB’s touches. It’s not a particularly favorable pairing, so the Perine would just be a low-end RB2 / flex. If Mixon is active, it will still be a mandatory start even if you see fewer touches than usual.

McKissic has been on concussion protocol since week 12, but while not officially listed, he has been doing limited practice this week.

If it is active, we can assume that it has no restrictions, so it would be in play as a low-end PPR flex. If you’re out, look to Antonio Gibson for more total touches and continue his RB1-level production streak.
