Integrating specific WR/CB matchups into your DFS process adds another layer of analysis into the mix. While this is only a piece of the puzzle, this tool allows you to better value ceiling-type plays for elite WRs who can run circles around their opponent.

I break up this WR/CB article into several 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.

Cooper Kupp

Kupp put up one of the most alpha wide receiver seasons of all time last year, and he hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down in 2022. He carries PFF’s highest receiving grade, 87.4, through five weeks. That grade climbs to 90.4 out of the slot, where he aligns 53% of the time. When he’s targeted on intermediate throws of 10-19 yards, which is where he’s targeted 61% of the time, it gets even higher, an absurd 96.8.
