Strong Matchups

Saints I can’t decide if I should go with the passing or the running attack in this game so I am coming up with the conclusion to just avoid it and look to another game. Michael Thomas is once again in a strong matchup in this one and will likely be a very chalky option.
Washington
it is hard to get on board with a game that has a 37.5 total and features New York and Washington players. I don’t want any wide receivers from either team in this game.
Ravens
I think you can safely roster Lamar Jackson as a stand-alone play from the Ravens this week but if you have to pick a player to pair him with it feels like Marquise Brown is your only option at the wide receiver position.
Panthers
The Panthers need this game against the Falcons this week and it could be a high scoring battle where both DJ Moore and Curtis Samuel see plenty of targets. Moore has only a single touchdown on the season but is coming off 40 targets over the last four games, which is hard to ignore.
Bengals
The Bengals are almost right up there with the Dolphins as one of the truly bad teams on offense. Tyler Boyd is seeing targets but hasn’t been cashing in on them and I don’t see that changing much against the Raiders this week.

Weak Matchups

Cardinals – The 49ers defense is playing great this season and going against Kyler Murray a second time this year might be more to the 49ers' advantage. I can see taking a few shots on Christian Kirk as he could break any catch for a long touchdown.
Eagles – The Patriots have done a good job at shutting down opposing teams wide receivers, I don’t see a different scenario against the Eagles this week. It will be tough sledding for Alshon Jeffery and company.
Chiefs – With Mahomes back healthy the Chiefs wide receivers are in play no matter the matchups.
Vikings – It has been the Dalvin Cook show in Minnesota recently and being a -10.5 favorite at home I think it remains the Dalvin Cook show.
LionsKenny Golladay 38/697/8 and Marvin Jones Jr 47/612/6 have been huge for the Lions this season. With a lack of a rushing game right now it will be these two players who are heavily involved once again.
