WR/CB Matchups to Exploit: Week 13

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 Allen Robinson (CHI vs DET) vs Desmond Trufant

Things finally started to look right for Robinson last week with Robinson finding the end zone and having Mitchell Trubisky back at quarterback. When these teams met back in week 1, Robinson caught 5 passes for 74 yards and was very effective on the outside. The Lions are coming off an embarrassing Thanksgiving Day loss to Houston where they were routinely torched on the outside by Will Fuller V. Trubisky is no Deshaun Watson but he should be able to take advantage of Trufant on the outside and Robinson should see a high volume of targets this week.
