This has become a weekly ritual for the Bengals. Mixon has been ruled out once again for the Bengals in Week 16, but head coach Zac Taylor left the door open for Mixon to return to the lineup in Week 17. It makes no sense for Mixon to play in a meaningless Week 17 matchup vs. the Ravens, so it seems extremely unlikely that he will actually return this season.
With Mixon out of the lineup, expect Giovani Bernard to continue to serve as their lead back. He was very busy in their last game vs. the Steelers, finishing with 25 carries and one target. He managed to rack up 97 yards of total offense and two touchdowns, resulting in 22.2 FanDuel points. He draws a solid matchup this week vs. the Texans, who rank just 29th in Football Outsiders’ rush defense DVOA.
