For redraft leagues, we call this the beginning of playoffs. For DFSers, its another week and another opportunity to learn from our mistakes and find value.
Last week’s WR/CB matchup article championed Davante Adams, who was the chalk play, as well as highlighting the stance pf being ahead of the Darren Waller train after weeks of disappointment. The under-the-radar Sterling Shepard also caught a TD.
As I’ll mention below, D.J. Chark was a massive bust as well as Tyler Lockett, who we later found out was seriously ill.
I’ve broken up this week’s 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 and 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.
