Joe Mixon Fantasy: Bengals Coach Points to RB Returning in Week 5

The Cincinnati Bengals and fantasy football owners are sitting in the same boat when it comes to running back Joe Mixon. After a strong start to the 2018 NFL season, all sides just want the young playmaker back on the field.

After suffering a knee injury which sidelined him, it seemed he was likely to return in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But on Wednesday, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis flipped the script a bit, pointing to a likely return this week, as Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer revealed.
