DFS WR vs. CB Matchup to Exploit in Week 4 (Fantasy Football)
I break up this WR/CB article into a couple of categories: Alpha WRs, Slot Mavens, Discount Target Specials, and Full-On Fades. The goal is to go from the top-tier stars to move down to bargain WRs with excellent matchups. As always, make sure you use the tools found in the DFS Pass such as the Value Comparison and Buzz Report to discern which WR would be best in cash and tournament lineup builds.
I detailed Davante Adams in the FanDuel Cash Game Picks as it’s rare to see him as the WR3 on any slate. He leads the league in % of routes targeted (37.8) and consider him essentially a goal-line RB this week. He’s also a chameleon lining up almost equally on all three spots (LWR-36%/ SWR-39%/ RWR-26%) so expect coverage from Joe Haden, Cameron Sutton, and James Pierre. All three are allowing over a 70 percent catch rate and the Steelers as a whole have allowed the 5th most fantasy points to opposing WRs and all of their TDs via the pass. The Steelers are not getting after the QB near the same rate as last year. Play him on FanDuel as he’s only going to be more expensive here on out for the league’s best WR.
