Play of the Week: Joe Mixon, Bengals ($6,100)
Game script has gotten in the way at times, but Mixon has remained a feature back lately. He’s handled 85% of the Bengals’ RB carries and 53% of the RB targets over the past 5 weeks.
Game script shouldn’t be a problem this weekend, with Cincinnati a 3-point home favorite against Oakland. The Raiders sit 27th in Football Outsiders’ run defense rankings and 21st in RB coverage. And, per Pro Football Focus’ Pat Thorman, teams run against the Raiders at the league’s 5th highest rate in 1-score games over the past 5 weeks.
Considering his volume and matchup, Mixon is at least $1,000 underpriced here.
