DFS WR vs. CB Matchups to Monitor in Week 1
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.
Davante Adams is underpriced in my opinion at $7,300 and is probably my favorite DK wide receiver to play “naked”, aka without stacking with a QB. Minnesota’s Holton Hill allowed the third-highest yards per route run among CBs on the main slate. This year Adams should approach a 30 percent target share as the main guy for Aaron Rodgers. Take advantage of the discount before his salary rises any higher.
