Joe Mixon Underwhelms In Week 12

Sunday, November 26, 8:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon finished with 16 yards off eight carries in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh. The former Oklahoma Sooner had one of the worst rushing performances of his career. Unfortunately, his four-game scoring streak also came to an end. Still, he at least had two catches for 44 yards to help salvage the day for fantasy managers. Nonetheless, Mixon will be hard to trust in Week 13 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, he remains in the flex conversation, and he could turn it around if things go well with quarterback Jake Browning during practice throughout the week.

Aaron Jones, AJ Dillon Both Missing From Practice

Wednesday, November 29, 3:15 PM

Green Bay Packers running backs Aaron Jones (knee) and AJ Dillon (groin) were both missing from the first practice of the week on Wednesday. Jones suffered a sprained MCL in Week 11 and missed the Thanksgiving Day upset over the Detroit Lions last Thursday as a result. Jones' injury isn't all that serious, but there's a chance he could miss his second straight game in Week 13 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The 28-year-old will need to practice at some point later this week to have a shot at returning. Dillon, meanwhile, had a questionable tag last week due to his groin injury, but he played and had 17 touches for 81 scrimmage yards as Green Bay's lead back against Detroit. All signs are pointing toward Dillon leading the Packers' backfield again this weekend as long as he returns to practice on Thursday or Friday.
