DFS WR vs. CB Matchup to Monitor for Week 7 (Fantasy Football)
Last week we shouted from the rooftops to play Justin Jefferson, who was a slate breaker. We also said to give Mike Evans a full fade. Overall it was a great week to consider the slate from a WR matchups point of view and gain leverage on the field in DFS.
I’ve broken up this year’s 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.
Kenny Golladay is set up to absolutely smash this week. Falcons CB Kendall Sheffield has the lowest PFF grade for CBs on the slate. Oh yeah, he’s also allowing 0.52 fantasy points per route covered, the highest on this slate. He’s somehow allowed the 9th most receiving yards despite only playing in three games this season. Kenny G is going to dominate this week. He’s a value on DraftKings at $6,700 and a cash game lock for me.
