NFL DFS WR vs. CB Matchups to Exploit in Week 9 (Fantasy Football)
There’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 break up this 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.
This week, I’m going to put my lot into going overweight compared to the field with Ja’Marr Chase. I’ve been mostly out for this season as the mix of efficiency and hype felt like it would regress. Narrator: It hasn’t. Beyond just missing out on previous weeks, I like the matchup this week against the Browns. Over the last month, Cleveland’s pass defense has soured allowing the 5th MOST fantasy points to opposing WRs. The Browns should use a mix of Greedy Williams and Greg Newsome II on Chase but he is such a bully. Joe Burrow is averaging a league-high 11.1 yards per attempt versus man coverage.
