Exposed (WR/TE Matchups): Week 16

Breaks down some of the best and worst WR/TE matchups from a defensive perspective.

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 (, 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.

Favorable Matchup:

WR Amari Cooper (DAL vs PHI):

Cooper continues to find himself on both sides of our list from week to week. He was a huge disappointment last week, but that had more to do with blown coverages from the Rams defense and other players being wide open. Cooper has a great matchup this week against a Philadelphia team that has not been able to cover anyone. Ronald Darby is going to give up at least 1 big play if not multiple and Cooper is a good bet to find the end zone. Look for a bounce back in a big way from Cooper this week.
