DFS WR vs. CB Matchups to Monitor in Week 10
For Week 10, 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, 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.
Remember Michael Thomas? Yes the Saints WR is back and he’s way too cheap especially on DraftKings at $7,400. The Saints move him all over the field so whether its Jason Verrett or slot CB K’Waun Williams, Thomas is an elite route-running tactician. The 49ers are 19th in pass DVOA, a far cry from their elite 2019 season. With that salary and the Saints team implied total of 29, I’m expecting Thomas to be an important part of my builds including a cash game play.
