WR/CB Matchups to Exploit: Week 10

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 (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.

Favorable Matchup:

WR Cooper Kupp, (LAR vs SEA) vs Ugo Amadi, D.J. Reed

We will continue to pick on the Seattle secondary just as much as opposing offenses have all season. It would be hard to go wrong with just about any receiver for the Rams this week, as long as Jared Goff can get them the ball in a timely manner. Seattle has allowed the 2nd most fantasy points to slot receivers and that bodes well for Kupp who will either get third-string corner Reed or Amadi if he can return from injury this week. Kupp finished last season with a 12 reception, 162-yards, and 2 touchdowns on 20 targets against this unit last season. Look for big numbers in what should be a shootout this week against Seattle.
