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 Keenan Allen (LAC vs MIA):
The Dolphins secondary has been picked on all season long. They traded their top cover man in Minkah Fitzpatrick and have matched up poorly against opposing team’s top wide receiver. Amari Cooper had 6 catches for 88 yards and 2 touchdowns last week against Miami and Allen is coming off a monster 13-catch for 183 yards and 2 touchdown game of his own. Look for Allen to be running free all over the field this weekend.
