Exposed (WR/TE Matchups): Week 6

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 Christian Kirk, ARZ vs DAL (Trevon Diggs/Daryl Worley)

The Dallas secondary has not been able to stop anyone on the outside at all this season. They are allowing the 3rd most fantasy points to opposing receivers and have allowed 9 touchdown passes to receivers lined up on the outside. Diggs has allowed the 5th most fantasy points to opposing receivers and has routinely been beaten by outside receivers. DeAndre Hopkins is still the main guy in Arizona, but Kirk has enough of a favorable matchup to warrant Flex consideration this week.
