For Week 17, 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.

Alpha WRs

This is basically unfair… Vernon Hargreaves II has arguably been one of the worst corners in the league (and horrible 1st round bust pick) and now he faces off against Mr. Yards Per Reception, A.J. Brown. Hargreaves has allowed 746 receiving yards (7th most in NFL) as well as five receiving TDs. Opposing QBs have a 113.8 rating when targeting him. Take advantage with Brown in tournaments as clear leverage on Derrick Henry. The over in Titans games this season is 11-3-1… tied for the highest in the NFL.
