Exposed (WR/TE Matchups): Week 8

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 Kenny Golladay (DET vs NYG):

We all saw what Marvin Jones Jr did last week against the Vikings secondary and Matthew Stafford is going to be throwing the ball all over the place again this week after the injury to Kerryon Johnson. The Lions have a great matchup against a Giants secondary that is allowing just over 140 yards per game to receivers lined up on the outside. Jones may have had his moment last week but Golladay is the guy to bet on in the Lions offense this week. Look for a big rebound from Golladay this week.
