Exposed (WR/TE Matchups): Week 5

Breaks down some of the best and worst WR/TE matchups this week 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 Julio Jones (ATL vs HOU):

Last week should have been a favorable matchup for Jones against a struggling Malcolm Butler, but it ended up being a disappointment. This week Jones has a great chance to bounce back against Lonnie Johnson on the outside. The rookie has not been good about covering the right side and that should give ample opportunity for Matt Ryan to target Jones down the field for big gains. Look for a bounce back week from Jones and the Falcons offense.
