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 Cooper Kupp (LAR vs ATL):
If last week was any indication against the Cardinals, the Falcons are not able to cover anyone on defense. Jared Goff and the Rams offense struggled last week against a stout 49ers defense but expect a full bounce back this week against Atlanta. The Falcons are especially vulnerable on the outside and that will also boost Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods but expect the offense to continue to go through Kupp. With the running game in question again this week, expect big things from the receivers for the Rams.
