Mixon had one of his best games of the season last week, piling up 137 scrimmage yards and a touchdown against the Chargers. Mixon out-touched backup Gio Bernard 31-to-five, and will be a strong RB1 play in a beautiful home matchup with the Raiders this week.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.

Averages 108.4 rush yards per home gameJets are AFC's worst Fantasy team vs. opposing WRs
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Oakland is 25th against fantasy running backs, look for Mixon to have RB1 value at home. The Jets are just 25th against fantasy wide receivers, Hopkins should have a huge game on Saturday afternoon against a struggling defense.
