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 T.Y. Hilton, IND vs TEN (Adoree' Jackson)
This is one of the biggest games of the weekend and Hilton has said he will play despite missing practice during the week. He hasn’t scored a touchdown since week 11 against the same Titans defense, when he blew up for 9/155/2 while being shadowed by Jackson. Since then, Hilton hasn’t exactly struggled either with an average of 7 catches per game and at least 75 yards in all 5 games.
WR Robert Woods, LAR vs SF (K'Waun Williams)
Woods is averaging nearly 10 targets/game over the last month and has been the most reliable receiver since Cooper Kupp went on I.R. The match up isn’t clear since Williams aggravated his knee injury last week, but Woods should have a clear edge over him or his most likely replacement D.J. Reed. The Rams are in danger of losing a first round bye with a loss this week, so they don’t figure to rest their starters here either.
