Exposed (WR/TE Matchups): Week 3

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 (, 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 Corey Davis (TEN vs MIN)

Davis will look to continue his redemption tour against a surprisingly bad Vikings defense this week. In 2 games, they have allowed 5 passing touchdowns to receivers and have struggled to keep anyone healthy. With A.J. Brown still limited; Davis will again be one of the main beneficiaries of additional targets. He had 10 catches on 13 targets for 137 yards and a touchdown so far this season and should add to those numbers this week. The only detriment could be if the Titans get up early and go with Derrick Henry to run out the clock.
