 Hopkins' 36 receiving yards last week were his fewest of the season, but he did manage to score. More importantly, he saw double digit targets for the second straight week, after getting 10+ targets just once over the previous six games. It appears that Deshaun Watson is beginning to throw the ball more, and Hopkins should be in store for a strong finish as long as that continues to be the case. He's a high-end WR1 this week against a Jets defense that allows the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing wideouts.

ATL worst Fantasy team in NFC vs RBsJets are AFC's worst Fantasy team vs. opposing WRs
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Johnson has fielded 63 touches over the last three games. The traffic netted him just 212 yards and no touchdowns. Volume and name recognition are keeping him in the RB1 conversation. For this week, add a favorable matchup to that list. Only the Bengals and Chiefs have ceded more PPR points to running backs than the Falcons, who have allowed an NFL-high 97 catches to the position. Johnson has mustered just 48 combined receiving yards over the last four games, but the Cardinals should find more ways to at least drag him to 100 total yards on another 20-plus touches. He could at least replicate a Week 14 performance (eight catches for 12 yards) that will be used as Exhibit A in all offseason cases against PPR formats.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Atlanta is just 27th against fantasy running backs, Johnson is a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 this week in Atlanta. The Jets are just 25th against fantasy wide receivers, Hopkins should have a huge game on Saturday afternoon against a struggling defense.
