Exposed (WR/TE Matchups): Week 2

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 Mike Evans (TB vs CAR):

The stat line for Evans last week does not tell the whole story of the game. He may have only had a single catch for 7 yards and a touchdown, but he was interfered on what would have been 2 long plays down the field. Coach Arians admitted he should have moved Evans around the field and away from Marshon Lattimore as well. This week, Evans has a matchup against a soft Carolina defense, Chris Godwin is dealing with a concussion, and Tom Brady is very motivated after a lackluster week 1 performance. Look for a big game for Evans this week.
