DFS WR vs. CB Matchups to Monitor for Conference Championships
All year long I’ve highlighted WR/CB matchups to give an extra boost of confidence in your selections for DFS lineups. In the playoffs, our pool of potential players obviously is reduced and the matchups become that much more nuanced. While this is only a piece of the puzzle, this process allows you to better value ceiling-type plays for elite WRs and who can run circles around their opponent.
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.
Davante Adams vs. Carlton Davis
Exposure: Cash Lock on Both Sites
Over the last month, Adams leads all pass-catchers with a 33 percent target share. Listen we know he’s good but the matchup this week is one I will be exploiting. He might be my highest exposure of the week. I don’t care about the salary: Since Week 8, no team has allowed more red-zone touchdowns to WRs. Carlton Davis matched up against Adams in Week 6 and held him in check. I hope everyone boxscore watches instead of locking in the surest thing on the slate.
