DFS WR vs. CB Matchups to Monitor for Week 16
For Week 16, it’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’ve broken up this year’s WR/CB article into a couple of categories: Alpha WRs, 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.
Tyreek Hill is a slate-breaker against arguably the worst secondary in the NFL. The Falcons are allowing the most fantasy points to the WR position including the most 20+ yard pass plays, a Mahomes-Hill special. Rookie A.J. Terrell has allowed the most receiving yards in the NFL! If Isaiah Oliver lines up against him in the slot, it’s a laugher as well as opposing QBs have a 127 rating when targeting him, the most YAC, and six receiving TDs allowed. He is obviously expensive but the upside is there to hit 35+ DK points and not even blink.
