WR/CB Matchups to Exploit: Week 15

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 Stefon Diggs (BUF vs DEN) vs Michael Ojemudia

Denver has been good against wide receivers all year, until the wheels started to fall off after injuries. They are currently without Bryce Callahan, A.J. Bouye, Essang Bassey, Duke Dawson, and Kevin Toliver. That laundry list of injuries propelled a Carolina team without DJ Moore to have 242 yards receiving and 43 fantasy points. Will Parks was just claimed off waivers and will have to try and run with Cole Beasley this week who could be right up there with Diggs in yards and fantasy points scored this week. The Buffalo offense could also get John Brown back this week if he is activated and it should be an ariel display for Josh Allen and company.
