WR/CB Matchups to Exploit: Week 7

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 Tyler Boyd, CIN vs CLE (Kevin Johnson)

Joe Burrow has turned to Boyd as his favorite target and while the Browns have allowed a lot of yards on the ground, the matchup with Boyd and Johnson is too good to pass up. He has 12 total tackles on the year and a single pass defended. The battle for Ohio should be more entertaining and competitive this year, but in this matchup, the advantage goes to Boyd.
