Bengals' Joe Mixon: Continues shedding weight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mixon is down to 218 pounds, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website reports.

Mixon weighed 226 pounds at last year's combine, but he reported to rookie minicamp at 238 and played most of his rookie season around 230. A report from April had him around 225, and he apparently wants to take it a step further, even if that means sacrificing some power. In addition to the obvious benefits in terms of speed and acceleration, the second-year back may find that a slimmer physique helps him gain separation running routes. Perhaps more important than his own development, Mixon stands to benefit if the Bengals' offseason moves to upgrade their woeful offensive line end up being successful. In addition to trading for left tackle Cordy Glenn and drafting center Billy Price in the first round, Cincinnati hired offensive line coach Frank Pollack, who spent the last three seasons in Dallas. Giovani Bernard will still be involved in some capacity, but the Bengals seem intent on having Mixon handle the lead role.

Bengals' Jeff Driskel: Struggles in offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driskel struggled with accuracy throughout OTAs and minicamp, Jay Morrison of the Dayton Daily News reports.

With AJ McCarron (Bills) out of the picture, Driskel is competing with Matt Barkley and seventh-round rookie Logan Woodside for the backup role behind Andy Dalton. However, it doesn't sound like any of the three has emerged as a leading candidate for the job, with Barkley reportedly also struggling with accuracy this offseason, while Woodside received minimal reps during team drills. Regardless, Driskel's mere participation in 11-on-11 work throughout the spring suggests the signal caller has made a full recovery from the broken arm that required surgery this past winter.

Bengals' Randy Bullock: Facing some competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bullock is one of two kickers on the Cincinnati roster heading into training camp, with Jonathan Brown set to compete with him.

Bullock bounced around the league the past two seasons before finally settling in with the Bengals in 2017, converting 18 of 20 field-goal attempts and 31 of 33 PATs, albeit with just five successful kicks from 40 yards or longer. It's unclear if Brown can provide legitimate competition, as he has yet to earn a spot on any team's 53-man roster since joining the Bengals as an undrafted rookie in 2016. Bullock is a clear favorite to win the job, but he probably isn't good enough to warrant fantasy consideration in most leagues unless the Cincinnati offense takes a huge step forward.
