Fantasy Football WR/CB Matchup Report Week 15

WR CB Matchup Report
Left WR vs Right CB
Wide ReceiverTeamDK / FD $CornerbackOppMatchup
Marquise BrownARI$5100 / $6400Ambry ThomasSFModerate
San Francisco has the 3rd highest-graded team in PFF coverage grades but the predictive gameflow is such that Arizona should have to throw to keep up. Coming off the bye week, I'm sure Kyler and his longtime teammate and friend have worked on ways to get the ball in Brown's hands and we should see that this week. I wish the matchup was better but there should be enough volume to still use Brown even in a tough matchup.
Drake LondonATL$5400 / $6600Donte JacksonCARModerate
Last week I was banging the drum for London and he had a massive game in a great matchup. This week, the matchup is tougher against Carolina who has been extremely stingy in yards allowed to opposing wide receivers this season. London will still lead the team in targets like he usually does, but I don't expect a big production game this week in a tough divisional matchup. Desmond Ridder is still looking shaky so in tougher matchups I don't completely trust London to produce.
Odell Beckham.BAL$4000 / $6000Montaric BrownJACModerate
Over the past 3 games, Odell has emerged and has become a big part of the Baltimore passing attack. He has seen 22 targets and caught 11 passes for 247 yards and a touchdown in that span and looks to build on that in a great matchup. He is still splitting snaps and only played a 54% snap percentage last week, but still saw a 25% target share even with the limited snaps. Jacksonville has allowed the 3rd most top 24 games to ride receivers this season and the increase in target share along with the plus matchup makes Odell a solid WR3 option and an attractive pay-down option in DFS.
Stefon DiggsBUF$8400 / $8500Stephon GilmoreDALModerate
Last week we saw Gilmore do a great job on AJ Brown and he will have another battle on his hands this week with Diggs. Diggs also had a tough matchup last week seeing a Sneed shadow that held him to 4 catches and 24 yards on 11 targets. The targets will be steady for Diggs as always, but the tougher matchup this week will make me look elsewhere in DFS at this salary range.
DJ Chark Jr.CAR$3300 / $5300Clark Phillips IIIATLRisky
Whether it's Phillips who played well last week or Okudah returning from injury, Chark is a risky play. The Carolina offense is ugly and Chark is the 3rd option at best in a poor passing game.
DJ MooreCHI$6900 / $7900Martin Emerson Jr.CLESafe
Emerson is a solid corner who is only allowing a 46% reception percentage in his coverage so it is a tough matchup for Moore. Emerson has yet to allow a touchdown in his coverage this season but Moore has been on fire since Justin Fields returned so this should be a fun matchup to watch. Moore has seen at least 9 targets in each of his last 4 games so the volume will be there, which makes him playable even in a tough matchup.
Ja'Marr ChaseCIN$7600 / $8000Akayleb EvansMINSafe
The Cincinnati passing game struggled last week but they should be able to get back on track this week against a Minnesota secondary that is in the bottom 5 in receptions allowed to receivers on the season. Chase will have an advantage against Evans who has allowed a near 70% reception percentage, 348 yards, and 3 touchdowns in his coverage.
Amari CooperCLE$6000 / $7200Jaylon JohnsonCHIModerate
Cooper cleared concussion protocol in time to see 14 targets last week and turn them into a 7 for 77 game. Joe Flacco is slinging it and that's a good thing for Cooper as his top target. The issue this week is the matchup with Johnson who is the#1 graded corner in coverage per PFF grades. Johnson has only allowed a 47% reception percentage, 162 yards, and 1 touchdown in his coverage so the upside is capped for Cooper this week in this matchup.
Michael GallupDAL$3300 / $5500Rasul DouglasBUFRisky
Even though Gallup scored a touchdown last week, we are still seeing a full split in this other outside receiver position with Gallup and Tolbert basically splitting snaps 50/50. Add to the limited opportunities the fact that he will face Douglas who is an excellent cover corner and it all makes Gallup a risky start this week.
Courtland SuttonDEN$6400 / $7300Jerry JacobsDETSafe
The Denver touchdown machine got his 10th touchdown of the season last week and Sutton has now scored double-digit fantasy points in every game but 2 this season. He has 7 touchdowns in his last 8 games and now faces a reeling Lions defense that has given up 15 touchdowns to wide receivers this season. It's a good matchup for Russell Wilson's favorite target.
Jameson WilliamsDET$3400 / $5100Pat SurtainDENRIsky
Still only playing around 50% of the snaps, Williams' usage still makes him risky. Dan Campbell said they need to get the ball in his hands, which could help their struggling offense, but it's a tough matchup this week. Surtain is one of the best corners in the league so the matchup and limited volume make Williams extra risky this week.
Romeo DoubsGB$5300 / $6400Zyon McCollumTBModerate
Whether it is McCollum or Jamel Dean returning this week, I like the matchup against Tampa for Doubs. I would love to call him safe, but I can't since he has only caught more than 4 passes once this season so the volume isn't enough to love him even in a plus matchup. With Watson banged up and against a generous secondary, I will use Doubs as a pay-down option in DFS and would even flex him in season-long leagues.
Nico CollinsHOU$7000 / $7700Tre AveryTENSafe
As of Wednesday Collins still wasn't practicing as he deals with a calf injury, but he is hopeful to play on Sunday. If he does play, I love the matchup against backup corner Tre Avery after Kristian Fulton was placed on IR. Keep an eye on practice reports, but if Nico is good to go, fire him up, with or without Stroud.
Michael PittmanIND$7300 / $7900Joey Porter Jr.PITModerate
Pittman has been great lately, but this week he will see a shadow from Joey Porter who is already becoming one of the top young corners in the league. Porter has limited several big-name receivers this season and will look to add Pittman to his hit list. Pittman will still get him, but I am going to downgrade him from safe to moderate this week due to the Porter shadow.
Calvin RidleyJAC$6200 / $6800Brandon StephensBALModerate
In the first game without Christian Kirk, we saw the target tree condense, and basically everything went to Ridley, Zay Jones, or Evan Engram. Ridley saw 13 targets but was only able to turn them into 4 catches for 53 yards. The volume will be there, but the matchup is tough this week against a solid Baltimore defense and Stephens who has only allowed 2 touchdowns in his coverage this season.
Marquez Valdes-ScantlingKC$3000 / $4800Jonathan JonesNERisky
I want to play Kansas City receivers against this Patriots secondary so badly but I just can't do it here. MVS with his butterfingers, 33% snap percentage, and 10% target share just don't allow me to do it. Well, find another way to attach the Patriots this week... stay tuned!
Davante AdamsLV$7400 / $7100Michael DavisLACSafe
Adams has seen double-digit targets in 3 of his last 4 games but has only gone over 15 fantasy points once since week 4. The Raiders offense under O'Connell is not clicking but this could be the spot to get right and there are even rumblings that Jimmy G might be back under center. The Chargers have allowed 3,705 yards and 19 touchdowns in their coverage on the season so the volume paired with the plus matchup makes Adams a nice play this week and it could be somewhat contrarianin DFS since people tend to stay away from the Raiders with their struggles.
Quentin JohnstonLAC$3800 / $5600Amik RobertsonLVRisky
In his best game so far, Johnston got over 90 receiving yards on his 3 catches. He gets a plus matchup against Robertson this week, but he also lost his quarterback and goes from Justin Herbert to Easton Stick. Joshua Palmer is also expected to return so that will take targets away from Johnston as well. Even with the plus matchup, there are too many things going against Johnston to not call him risky.
Demarcus RobinsonLAR$3600 / $5600Kendall FullerWASModerate
Last week Tutu Atwell went into concussion protocol early in the game and Robinson took over his role and had some success. He saw 10 targets and caught 3 of them but one was a touchdown which helped him finish with 13.6 fantasy points. If Atwell doesn't clear concussion protocol, it is a solid matchup for Robinson against Washington, but he will still be behind Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua in the target pecking order so he will still carry some risk with limited volume.
Jaylen WaddleMIA$7400 / $7000DJ ReedNYJModerate
Even in a game last week that Tyreek Hill missed a majority of, Waddle was only able to put up 13.9 fantasy points against a bad Tennessee secondary. This week they face the Jets who have the best CB duo in the league and he will see a bunch of Reed who has yet to allow a touchdown in his coverage this season. With the tough matchup here, Waddle can not be called a safe play, even with his consistent volume.
Justin JeffersonMIN$8100 / $8800Chidobe AwuzieCINSafe
What a letdown last week when Jefferson returned from his IR stint only to sustain a big hit and be knocked from the game in the first quarter. Thankfully he avoided any serious injury and is expected to play this week with Nick Mullens now throwing him the ball after the quarterback change. Cincinnati has allowed nearly 3,500 yards in their coverage this season and is generous to opposing wide receivers. It is a good matchup for Jefferson just in time for fantasy playoffs.
Devante ParkerNE$3500 / $5100L'Jarius SneedKCRisky
Parker missed last week's game but is trending towards being back this week. He will get a tough matchup against Sneed who is a top cover corner in the league. Parker is a no for me this week.
A.T. PerryNO$3500 / $4700Deonte BanksNYGRisky
With no Michael Thomas, we have seen Perry in his role on the outside, but he has been relatively quiet. He has back-to-back weeks with only 1 catch so the volume is scary and the matchup against a solid young corner in Banks is scary as well. Pass on Perry for me.
Jalin HyattNYG$3200 / $5400Isaac YiadomNORisky
Last week was a quiet game for Hyatt as he only caught 2 passes on 3 targets for 13 yards. We thought we were seeing an emergence from him but he now has had 3 duds in a row and can't be trusted in a matchup against a solid Saints defense.
Garrett WilsonNYJ$5800 / $6900Jalen RamseyMIASafe
Everybody likes to talk about how bad Zach Wilson is, but he seems to be good for Garrett Wilson's fantasy value. Even more so now that he is playing carefree, he is going to chuck the rock and he's going to look to get it to his playmaker on the outside. Garrett saw 14 targets last week and even in a tougher matchup against Ramsey, the targets will be there to give him a solid enough floor to start as a back-end WR2 and certainly worth a look on DK at the low price.
A.J. BrownPHI$8600 / $8700Tariq WoolenSEASafe
In the past 3 weeks Brown has had tough matchups against 3 very good secondaries and still put up over 50 fantasy points in those 3 games. He now gets a matchup against a Seattle defense that is allowing over 240 passing yards per game and 19 touchdowns in their coverage. Brown should totally take advantage of the matchup against Woolen and have a big game this week. He is one of the best plays on the slate.
George PickensPIT$4800 / $6100Jaylon JonesINDRisky
What an odd stat line for Pickens last week - he caught 5 passes on 6 targets, but only had 19 receiving yards and 32 air yards. It looks like it will once again be Mitch Trubisky under center so until we see some better production on his targets there will still be a risk in starting Pickens in your lineups and I would look elsewhere in DFS - maybe even to the other side of this offense...
Brandon AiyukSF$7200 / $7800Marco WilsonARISafe
In case you haven't been paying attention, the cover boy of this article has now scored in 3 straight weeks and Aiyuk is on the cover this week! He had his own 4 game touchdown streak snapped last week but still put up a nice game with 6 catches for 126 yards. The Arizona defense has allowed 22 passing touchdowns on the season and Wilson is graded as the 116th of the 119 corners graded on PFF. It's a dream matchup that Aiyuk should absolutely cash in on.
DK MetcalfSEA$6500 / $7400Darius SlayPHISafe
DK against Slay will be a great matchup to watch, but all the numbers point to this being a safe play for Metcalf. The Philly defense has allowed a top 24 receiver TWENTY TWO times this season (the next highest is 15) and they have given up the most fantasy points to wide receivers this season. DK has been on a hot streak with 5 touchdowns in his past 4 games so we will continue to ride the hot hand and plug DK into our lineups.
Mike EvansTB$7500 / $8300Jaire AlexanderGBSafe
A lot of fantasy managers were upset with the lack of production from Evans last week, but AJ Terrell really did a great job on him in coverage and had him covered well all game. This week he gets a better matchup against Green Bay who is beat up in the secondary. Jaire Alexander could be back out there but is still dealing with a shoulder injury and if Alexander can't go, it will be backup Corey Ballentine. Whether it's a banged-up Jaire or a backup in Ballentine, it should be a nice bounce-back week for Evans this week.
DeAndre HopkinsTEN$6200 / $7400Steven NelsonHOUSafe
After some sideline frustration 2 weeks ago between Hopkins and quarterback Will Levis, they looked to be perfectly fine last week when Hopkins saw 12 targets and caught 7 passes for 124 yards and a touchdown. Houston has a pretty good secondary and Nelson has only allowed a 60% reception percentage in his coverage, but has allowed 467 receiving yards. That tells me that Hopkins could rack up some yards against him, especially since he has seen 12 targets in back-to-back weeks.
Terry McLaurinWAS$5600 / $6700Ahkello WitherspoonLARModerate
This has been a rough season for McLaurin, but the Commanders come out of the bye week with an opportunity to get something going facing the Rams secondary. They are allowing over 225 yards per game through the air and McLaurin will see Witherspoon who has allowed 477 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns in his coverage. He should be able to rebound nicely this week and make people forget about his week 13 goose egg.
Right WR vs Left CB
Wide ReceiverTeamDraftKings/FanDuelCornerbackOppMatchup
Michael WilsonARI$3300 / $5100Charvarius WardSFRisky
We have yet to see Wilson with Kyler Murray under center as Wilson has been out with a shoulder injury. It looks like he will return this week and give Kyler that big-bodied outside receiver he has never had. Unfortunately, the matchup is against a stout San Francisco defense, but as good as Ward is, he has allowed 541 receiving yards in his coverage. I want to see it before you put Wilson in your regular league lineups, but with the opportunity for some volume this week, you can throw him in some GPP lineups as a dart throw.
KhaDarel HodgeATL$3000 / $4600Jaycee HornCARRIsky
This offense is Drake London, RBs, and TEs, there is no volume for the other receivers so they are too risky, especially against Horn.
Rashod BatemanBAL$3200 / $5100Darious WilliamsJACRisky
We are seeing Bateman share snaps with Beckham and, to a lesser extent, Agholor as well. Bateman is only seeing a 10% target percentage and the passing game is focused more on the other pieces than Bateman. Williams is a strong corner who has 4 interceptions so Lamar Jackson will likely be looking to exploit other matchups and target other receivers.
Gabe DavisBUF$5500 / $6200Daron BlandDALModerate
Gabe Davis is one of the most frustrating players in fantasy football as his range of outcomes is so large and unpredictable. In his last game before the bye, Davis had 12 targets, 6 catches, 105 receiving yards, a touchdown, and 22.5 fantasy points and then came out last week and put up a goose egg and only saw 2 targets. This week Buffalo gets Dallas who are the 7th highest graded coverage team but if Gilmore is limiting Diggs there may be more looks to Davis on the other side. In the past 6 games, Davis has alternated zeros and good games so if you believe in trends then this week should be a positive week. I'm not buying it though and can't trust Davis in the fantasy playoffs with his extreme boom/bust nature.
Jonathan MingoCAR$3900 / $5400A.J. TerrellATLRisky
Since the changes took place in the coaching staff, Carolina has been targeting Mingo frequently. He saw 9 targets last week but only caught 2 passes for 22 yards. He is seeing the snap share and target share that we like for a solid floor, but with a struggling offense and a matchup against Terrell who just shut down Mike Evans, I'll pass this week.
Tyler ScottCHI$3000 / $4400Greg Newsome IICLERisky
At least Scott is consistent. He has either 0 or 1 catch in each of Chicago's last 6 games. Against a solid Cleveland defense, he's super risky.
Tee HigginsCIN$5900 / $6300Byron Murphy Jr.MINSafe
I like Higgins this week in a plus matchup against a generous Minnesota secondary that gives up a lot of catches to receivers. He is still establishing his rapport with Jake Browning but had 72 receiving yards last week and would have also had a touchdown but was called for a push-off. With Chase a little banged up and Higgins another week healthier and with more reps with Browning under his belt, it is setting up for a nice week for Higgins who is priced too low in DFS this week and will pay off his value.
Cedric TillmanCLE$3400 / $4800Tyrique StevensonCHIModerate
Since being given the increased opportunities, Tillman has played over 80% snap share but is just not getting enough volume. Cooper, Moore, Njoku, and the receivers are the focus of this offense and there isn't enough for Tillman to call him safe. I will say that he has a good matchup against Stevenson this week and can certainly beat him on a big play or 2. With Flacco airing it out and the positive matchup, I don't hate using Tillman as a dart throw in a GPP lineup.
Brandin CooksDAL$5200 / $6300Christian BenfordBUFModerate
It was a bit of a down week for Cooks last week, but before that, he had scored touchdowns in 5 of the previous 7 games. Benford has played well this season, but he has allowed a 71% reception percentage and this game has some shootout potential. Dallas is in the midst of a tough stretch but they're trying to prove they are a championship-caliber team and will need Cooks to continue to produce to be that. He is a solid flex player and good DFS pay-down option this week.
Lil'Jordan HumphreyDEN$3000 / $4300Cameron SuttonDETRisky
Humphrey is here this week since he is outsnapping Marvin Mims but regardless, his 3% target share is risky and can't be recommended.
Josh ReynoldsDET$3600 / $5700Fabian MoreauDENModerate
Reynolds has scored a touchdown in 2 of his last 3 games but is only playing a 55% snap share. He hasn't seen more than 4 targets since week 5 so the lack of volume is worrisome. The Denver secondary has been playing much better so I do think Reynolds is a risky play, but worth a GPP flyer at his low price in DFS and his touchdown upside.
Christian WatsonGB$4800 / $7000Carlton Davis IIITBSafe
I am leaving Watson in here and trying to will him to play. He missed last week with a hamstring injury and we haven't seen any practice progress to tell us he will be back this week. If he is back, the matchup against the Bucs secondary would be amazing for him, especially since Davis is also banged up and may not play. Watson's backup Dontayvion Wicks is also banged up so well just leave the light on for Watson here and hope he plays. Keep an eye on the practice reports and prepare to plug him in if he plays.
Noah BrownHOU$5000 / $6500Sean Murphy-BuntingTENModerate
This play is going to depend on who plays quarterback for Houston. If Stroud is out there then I will use Brown. If it's Davis Mills, I will only play Nico and leave Brown out this week and watch the usage as I prepare to use him next week. The matchup is nice, but we need Stroud in there to make it work.
Alec PierceIND$3500 / $5000Levi WallacePITModerate
Coming off his best game, Pierce came back to Earth with one of his regular 2 catch outings last week. I do like him better than I do most weeks in this matchup since Pittman will be locked up with Porter on the other side. That should make Gardner Minshew look to Pierce with a few extra targets against Wallace who has allowed 6 touchdowns in his coverage this season.
Zay JonesJAC$4000 / $5700Marlon HumphreyBALSafe
Last week Jones led the Jaguars in targets in their first game without Christian Kirk. He played an 84% snap percentage and will continue to be a focal point of the passing offense in a game where they will have to score to keep up with Baltimore. Humphrey is a solid veteran corner, but he is not the lock down guy he once was Jones should be able to put up a solid floor with the volume he should see and he is still favorably priced in DFS.
Justin WatsonKC$3400 / $5100J.C. JacksonNEModerate
Watson is the guy who is seeing the 2nd most snaps in the Kansas City wide receiver rotation. He is out there 54.5% of the time but doesn't get a ton of targets which makes him risky. Jackson is one of the worst corners in the league and is dead last of the 119 cornerbacks graded on PFF. Jackson is the guy to target on this defense so while I can't trust him in season-long league playoff lineups, I will use Watson as my dart throw in some GPP lineups this week.
Jakobi MeyersLV$5500 / $6500Asante Samuel Jr.LACModerate
Who will be at quarterback for the Raiders will sway how much I like Meyers. If they do change back to Jimmy Garoppolo as rumors say, I will bump Meyers up a lot since we saw him clicking with Jimmy earlier in the season very well. Unfortunately, I think the Raiders stick with AOC so Meyers will still be a playable option but with some limited ceiling. Meyers will be a strong floor play since he is still seeing a 20% target share and gets Samuel who is good but has allowed 639 receiving yards in his coverage this season.
Joshua PalmerLAC$4100 / $5500Jack JonesLVModerate
Palmer returns at a perfect time since Keenan Allen will miss this game, but he will also be catching passes from Easton Stick after Justin Herbert's season-ending injury. Palmer should see a ton of targets in his first game back and draws Jones who allows over 80% reception percentage in his coverage. With an anticipated high target volume, a plus matchup, and a favorable price in DFS, I do like Palmer this week as a floor play.
Puka NacuaLAR$7300 / $8000Benjamin St-JusteWASSafe
This is a beautiful matchup for Puka against a Washington defense that has allowed the most passing yards and receiving touchdowns in the league. St-Juste has allowed 4 touchdowns along with 762 receiving yards in his coverage so Puka should once again be able to easily get to double-digit fantasy points like he has in 3 of his last 4 games.
Tyreek HillMIA$9900 / $10200Sauce GardnerNYJModerate
For the first time this season, I am downgrading Hill from safe to moderate this week. First, he is dealing with an ankle injury that kept him out of most of last week's game and has kept him out of practice this week as well. If he does play, he will not be at 100 percent and will be matched up against Sauce Gardner who is one of the best corners in the league. If he plays, you won't take him out of your season-long lineups after he gets you to the playoffs, but I am not going to pay his heavy price in DFS this week.
Jordan AddisonMIN$5600 / $6500DJ Turner IICINModerate
Addison is playing a 95% snap share and hopefully, we will finally get a full game of Justin Jefferson taking the focus of the defense opposite Addison. With the safeties helping on Jefferson, Addison in one-on-one with Turner is a nice matchup. Turner has allowed 439 receiving yards in his coverage but the move to Nick Mullens at quarterback gives me enough trepidation to not quite call Addison safe, but he is certainly playable as a WR3 this week in a plus matchup.
JuJu Smith-SchusterNE$3600 / $5500Jaylen WatsonKCRisky
Last week JuJu was one of the only options at wide receiver for New England and led the receivers in snap percentage and target share. Even with that, he only caught 4 passes on 6 targets for 90 yards and 13 fantasy points. That is basically the ceiling for JuJu at this point in time, so at his price point you can use him as a GPP paydown if New England is still without Douglas and Parker, but I don't trust him myself.
Lynn BowdenNO$3100 / $4600Adoree' JacksonNYGRisky
The beat-up Saints wide receiver room has left an opening for Bowden to play 77% of the snaps and grab an 18% target share last week. That said, he caught 4 passes for 24 yards and there just isn't enough upside for him to consider using him in our lineups.
Darius SlaytonNYG$3100 / $5500Paulson AdeboNORisky
Slayton is still the guy seeing the most snaps in the Giants wide receiver rotation, but even with a 93% snap share last week, he only managed 2 catches on 2 targets for 14 yards. Adebo has played really well this season and is the 6th highest-graded cover corner on PFF. The lack of production and tough matchup make Slayton risky.
Allen LazardNYJ$3000 / $5000Xavien HowardMIARisky
Zach Wilson only has eyes for Garrett Wilson. Lazard played 72% of the snaps last week and didn't see a single target. With a tough matchup against Howard and a lack of production, I am staying away from Lazard.
DeVonta SmithPHI$7200 / $7800Devon WitherspoonSEAModerate
Ever since the bye week, Smith has seen at least 8 targets in every game and has gone over 15 fantasy points in 3 of the 4 games. He gets a tough matchup this week against the solid rookie corner Witherspoon who has only allowed a 53% reception percentage in his coverage. I like the matchup better for Brown on the other side who I expect to see a heavy target volume, but Smith will still be involved enough to play as a flex in season-long leagues.
Diontae JohnsonPIT$5200 / $6700Darrell Baker Jr.INDSafe
I love the matchup for Johnson this week against an Indy defense that has given up the 8th most receptions to wide receivers. Dionte has scored in back-to-back games and the streak should continue this week against Baker who has given up 420 receiving yards in his coverage. With a plus matchup and as the team's top target, it is a good spot to use Johnson in playoff lineups and also in DFS lineups at a price that I think is too low.
Deebo SamuelSF$7700 / $8400Kei'Trel ClarkARISafe
Deebo has been red hot lately and he gets a super favorable matchup against a rookie 6th-round pick and a porous Arizona defense that has allowed 22 touchdowns in its coverage. Deebo moves around a lot, but none of the Arizona cornerbacks will be able to keep up with Samuel and Aiyuk and they should dominate this game with ease.
Tyler LockettSEA$5400 / $6700James BradberryPHIModerate
We are starting to see Jaxon Smith-Njigba emerge as a playmaker for Seattle and it is coming at Lockett's expense. He is still out there and playing a solid snap percentage, but Lockett's target percentage has dipped under 20% and JSN is seeing more targets lately. Bradberry is a good corner, but he has allowed 8 touchdowns in his coverage so there is still hope that Lockett finds paydirt as a flex in y our season-long lineups.
Chris GodwinTB$5900 / $6100Carrington ValentineGBSafe
Finally, we saw the Godwin game in Tampa last week as he saw 11 targets in a game where Mike Evans was blanketed by AJ Terrell. Godwin gets a plus matchup once again this week and while Evans will be much more involved this week, there should still be enough meat on the bone for Godwin to also be a solid contributor once again.
Nick Westbrook-Ikhine-IkhineTEN$3400 / $5200Derek StingleyHOURisky
Once again we saw Westbrook-Ikhine play over 80% of the snaps but still only caught 2 passes. A tough matchup against a solid corner and a lack of target spells risky.
Jahan DotsonWAS$4700 / $5800Derion KendrickLARSafe
The late bye came at a great time for Washington after a total dud in week 13 against Miami. Dotson hasn't scored over 11.5 fantasy points since week 9 and will look to get back on track against Kendrick who has given up 413 receiving yards in his coverage and a Rams defense that ranks dead last in PFF coverage grades.

Now, here are 10 of my favorite matchups in the slot for Week 15

Slot WR vs Slot CB
Wide ReceiverTeamDraftKings/FanDuelCornerbackOppMatchup
CeeDee LambDAL$9200 / $9200Taron JohnsonBUFSafe
I told you I wasn't going to pay up for Tyreek this week and if I am going to pay up for anyone in DFS it will be Lamb. He and Dak Prescott are firing on all cylinders and Lamb has seen double-digit targets in 5 of his last 7 games. Johnson is a very good corner, but he has allowed a 79% reception percentage and 3 touchdowns in his coverage this season. Lamb will continue to roll in this game that will have both teams driving the ball with something to prove.
Cooper KuppLAR$7800 / $8200Jartavius MartinWASSafe
Kupp looked totally back from his ankle issue last week when he caught 8 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown. This week he will draw a rookie safety playing slot corner for a Washington defense that has allowed 30 touchdowns in his coverage. I am tempted to switch the coverboy to Kupp since I love this matchup so much, but I will stick with Aiyuk and just tell you to get Kupp into every lineup and that he will score this week in a big game.
Amon-Ra St. BrownDET$7900 / $8100Ja'Quan McMillanDENSafe
Detroit has been struggling lately and ARSB has struggled as well. He saw 9 targets last week but only caught 3 passes and had some uncharacteristic drops. He will be sure to get back on track this week as the Lions push to clinch their playoff spot and build some positive momentum heading into the postseason. He certainly has an advantage over McMillan who has allowed 4 touchdowns in his coverage this season which should increase at the hands of Amon-Ra this week.
Zay FlowersBAL$5700 / $6800Tre HerndonJACSafe
As soon as Mark Andrews went down, I told everybody that it would be Flowers that has to step up and would see a big bump in targets. He saw 10 targets last week and went 6 for 60 and a touchdown. He has 18 total targets in the 2 games without Andrews and has a touchdown in each game. The Jaguars have allowed the 8th most fantasy points to wide receivers so the heavy target volume and PPR production should continue for Flowers, making him a safe play in season-long leagues and a good, underpriced play in DFS.
Rashee RiceKC$6100 / $6500Myles BryantNESafe
We saw Rice get what we have been asking for and play an 85% snap percentage last week finally! He has earned the trust of Patrick Mahomes and Mahomes will need him this week in a matchup against New England who will likely look to try to take Travis Kelce out with double and triple coverage. The electric playmaker Rice lined up one one-on-one against Myles Bryant and his 81% reception percentage is a matchup I want a part of.
Chris OlaveNO$7100 / $7500Cor'Dale FlottNYGSafe
Olave played last week after not practicing all week so he didn't have a heavy workload, but did score a touchdown. With a decimated wide receiver room, Olave should be heavily targeted this week and gets a favorable matchup against Flott and the Giants' defense that has allowed over 3,100 receiving yards on the season. Olave has scored double-digit fantasy points in every game but 1 since week 6 and should continue to have a safe floor this week.
Jayden ReedGB$4900 / $6100Christian izienTBSafe
With Christian Watson and other Green Bay wide receivers banged up, Reed has become a go-to target and a playmaker for Jordan Love and the Packers. He gets a very favorable matchup this week as well against the rookie Izien who has allowed an 80% reception percentage, 406 yards, and 3 touchdowns in his coverage. Coming off a game where he scored 20 fantasy points, and riding a streak of at least 15 points in 4 of his last 5 games, the good times should continue for Reed this week.
Curtis SamuelWAS$4600 / $6300Russ YeastLARModerate
This game has shootout potential and while the Rams can score plenty against the Washington defense, the Rams defense is the lowest-graded team in coverage per PFF and should give up some points themselves to Sam Howell and the Commanders. Samuel has been very involved in the offense before last week's bye and we are only 2 games removed from a 12-target, 9-catch, 100-yard performance against Dallas. He is well-priced in a game they should throw close to 50 times which means there will be plenty of opportunity for Samuel to rack up fantasy points.
Khalil ShakirBUF$3800 / $5200Jourdan LewisDALModerate
This is a sneaky play for DFS only, I wouldn't be using Shakir in season-long playoff matchups. I like him at a super low price against the lesser of the Dallas cornerbacks. If Gilmore and Bland give Diggs and Davis a hard time on the outside, Josh Allen will be looking to Shakir to make some plays in the middle of the field against Lewis who allows a 71.7% reception percentage in his coverage. I just mentioned the game that Samuel had against Dallas from the slot and that's why I like Shakir as a sneaky play this week.
Wan'Dale RobinsonNYG$3700 / $5300Alontae TaylorNOModerate
I was going to give this spot to Jaxon Smith-Njigba, but I needed to get Robinson in since he gets the matchup against Taylor who we love to target with his 565 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns allowed in his coverage. Robinson is also coming off a game where he saw 7 targets and caught 6 passes for 79 yards and is showing a bit of a connection with Tommy DeVito. With a plus matchup and solid volume from Tommy Cutlets, Robinson is a nice floor play once again this week and he is dirt cheap in DFS.
