This article attempts to highlight some of the best and worst matchups for wide receivers and tight ends each week. Using player tracking data from various sources (NFL.com, Pro Football Focus, ESPN, etc.) as well as reviews of recent trends, I look for situations to exploit or avoid when setting your weekly lineups. Given that this article is intended to help across all sites (both DFS and season-long), variations in pricing and scoring systems are not taken into account so obviously, the values could shift depending on where you are playing. The main intent of this article is simply to call out some players who could be significantly helped or hurt by their situations each week. I will also try to sort them in order of most favorable or least favorable where possible, but obviously, the quality of the player needs to be factored in as well when making your decisions.

WR Mohamed Sanu, ATL vs NO (P.J. Williams) - Thursday matchup
Sanu has been pretty quiet of late but remains a solid possession receiver for Atlanta who averages just under 5 catches per game over the last three weeks. The Eagles couldn’t really take advantage of the matchup last week with Golden Tate but P.J. Williams remains a weak link in this secondary that most teams will want to go after. Regardless, both Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley on the outside don’t appear to face very difficult matchups given how the perimeter corners have played for much of the season.
WR Odell Beckham Jr, NYG vs PHI (DeVante Busby)
The Eagles are quickly running out of cornerbacks due to a rash of injuries at the position, which could force them to start Chandon Sullivan and DeVante Busby outside with Cre'Von LeBlanc in the slot. Even if some of the other corners get healthy in time to play, they probably won’t offer much resistance to Beckham here.
WR D.J. Moore, CAR vs SEA (Shaq Griffin)
The Seattle outside corners have not been a strength for this team all season and have allowed an opposing receiver to top 100 yards for four straight games. With Devin Funchess coming off a miserable outing and dealing with a back injury, Moore should see a steady dose of targets this week. He torched the Lions for 7 catches on 8 targets for 157 yards and a touchdown last week and looks poised for another big game here.
