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.

Averages 108.4 rush yards per home gameMIA has allowed two WR TDS in 3 of last 4
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
 Thielen has morphed into a mere mortal, collecting 304 yards over his last five games after previously clearing 100 in every bout. This says little besides the fact that he was not able to maintain the best season in NFL history. He's still a WR1 against the Dolphins, who just coughed up nine catches for 86 yards and a touchdown to Julian Edelman from the slot. Thielen would especially attract Kirk Cousins' attention if Xavien Howard returns from a meniscus injury to cover Stefon Diggs, but both wideouts can return to prominence against a defense relinquishing 12.4 yards per reception. Don't drop him too far down the rankings.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Oakland is 25th against fantasy running backs, look for Mixon to have RB1 value at home. Miami is 18th against fantasy wide receivers, Thielen should have a WR1 day at home in a great matchup.
