DFS WR vs. CB Matchups to Monitor in Week 8 (Fantasy Football)
Last week’s article highlighted Keenan Allen and Justin Herbert as the stack you wanted to attack with in tournaments. Hopefully, you rode the rookie QB and his preferred weapon to some cash.
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.
Adam Thielen has a tough matchup against Green Bay’s Jaire Alexander. Alexander has been elite this year but let’s turn back the clock and see the last four matchups between these two division rivals. Thielen has some impressive stat lines: 12-131-1, 8-125-1, 5-75-0, and 6-110-2. He averaged 9.5 targets in those games and chances are he’ll be the least popular of the $7,000+ stud WRs this week. I’ll play him in tournaments.
