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.
WR Courtland Sutton (DEN vs MIN):
Sutton has found himself on both sides of this list so far this year, but this week is one of his best matchups. The Vikings defense has allowed 12 touchdowns and the 2nd most points to receivers who line up out wide. Sutton has run 82% of his routes out wide and is in line for a big day. The Vikings could not contain Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, or Randall Cobb last week and could again struggle with Sutton if they do not change what they are doing. Even with Brandon Allen at quarterback, Sutton should produce this week.
