Exposed (WR/TE Matchups): Week 17

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 A.J. Brown (TEN vs HOU):

This week is all about finding games that matter. Tennessee needs a win or losses by the Steelers and Colts to make the playoffs this season. That makes this a huge game for the Titans. The Texans have already won the division and have a very small chance of changing their playoff seed. Brown torched this defense to the tune of 8 catches, 114 yards, and a touchdown in week 15. He should see a lot Gareon Conley in coverage and will be running free all over the field. Brown has a great chance to extend his hot streak to close out the regular season.
