DFS WR vs CB Matchups to Exploit for Week 13 (Fantasy Football)
There’s never a better time to integrate specific WR/CB matchups into your DFS process. While this is only a piece of the puzzle, this tool allows you to better value ceiling-type plays for elite WRs and who can run circles around their opponent.
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.
Cooper Kupp has done everything you could ever want this year in both redraft and DFS. 4xing on his salary feels like the norm these days and with the news of Odell Beckham Jr. potentially being out, he becomes an even better play on FanDuel. The Jaguars are allowing the highest EPA per pass attempt and rookie slot CB Tyson Campbell is among the worst in the league at simply doing his job. He’s allowed the 3rd most slot receptions and opposing teams repeatedly make it part of their gameplan to attack him. I’m trusting Matthew Stafford and company to get back on the right track at home against one of the league’s worst teams. Kupp is a FD cash lock and a pay-up GPP WR on DraftKings.
