Fantasy Football WR/CB Matchup Report Week 6

WR CB Matchup Report
Left WR vs Right CB
Wide ReceiverTeamDK / FD $CornerbackOppMatchup
Marquise BrownARI$5300 / $7000Derion KendrickLARSafe
In 3 of the past 4 weeks Brown has seen double digit targets. The Cardinals defense keeps giving up points and making Joshua Dobbs throw and that benefits the receivers. This should be another one of those games and the matchup against the Rams is a good one as they have the second lowest coverage grade according to PFF rankings.
Drake LondonATL$4800 / $6400Kendall FullerWASModerate
The 6 catches last week was 35% of London's total catches for the season. It was the best game so far from Desmond RIdder, but until we see it consistently, London is only a moderate play. Fuller has only allowed 10 catches in his coverage this season and is the best of the Washington corners.
Odell Beckham.BAL$4000 / $5100Kristian FultonTENModerate
The Ravens receivers move all over the formation and the Tennessee secondary plays sides. There is also a rotation with Beckham, Bateman and even Nelson Agholor and they flip flop sides with Zay Flowers some too. This wont be a straight one on one matchup, but the Tennessee secondary is where you need to attack them since they have a strong run defense. Fulton has allowed a near 78% reception rate in his coverage so it is a plus matchup for Beckham and the Ravens pass catchers.
Stefon DiggsBUF$8800 / $9000Adoree'JacksonNYGSafe
After a let down game in London last week, the Bills come back to American soil to get back on track against a Giants defense that continues to get torched. They have given up at least 30 points in 3 games and over 24 points in each game so far. They have been using Jackson to shadow the past few weeks and he did a nice job on Tyreek Hill last week, but the advantage still goes to Diggs in the matchup.
Jonathan MingoCAR$3500 / $4900Eli AppleMIAModerate
For better or for worse, Carolina is focused on making Mingo a focal point in the offense. He had 7 targets last week and had a 83.7% route percentage and 84.5% snap share. Eli Apple is the one to target in the Miami secondary so the targets should once again go Mingo's way, but his quarterback continues to struggle. He has a good floor in this matchup in a PPR and is an attractive dart throw option at a low salary in DFS.
DJ MooreCHI$6500 / $8000Akayleb EvansMINModerate
It was a monster performance from Moore last week when he put up 49 fantasy points in a PPR league. He had 8 catches, 230 yards and three touchdowns. With no real clear cut trustworthy #2 receiver in Chicago, Moore had a whopping 40% target share. Against a better defense they may be able to focus on taking away Moore, but against Akayleb Evans who has allowed a near 70% reception percentage and 2 touchdowns in his coverage, it should be another good game for Moore who is still at a good price in DFS.
Ja'Marr ChaseCIN$8300 / $9300Tariq WoolenSEASafe
Ja'Marr Chase showed last week that he really is always open. He was the coverboy of this article last week and proved why with his 15 catch, 192 yard, 3 touchdown performance. Woolen hasn't been targeted much this season, but he has allowed an 80$ catch rate in his coverage when they have thrown at him. He's a good young corner, but Chase is too good to not call a safe play against the Seattle bottom 10 coverage grade secondary.
Amari CooperCLE$5800 / $6600Deommodore LenoirSFModerate
San Francisco as a team has the second best coverage grade according to PFF, and a lot of that comes from the opposing quarterbacks being pressured and making bad throws. If Deshaun Watson does play this week, we know he thrives on the move and making plays under pressure so I would like Cooper to see a good volume. Lenoir is the side to target also since the top corner, Ward, plays almost exclusively on the left side. Lenoir has allowed 26 catches on 36 targets for 231 yards in his coverage. NOTE: if Watson doesnt play, nobody is safein the Cleveland passing game.
Michael GallupDAL$3500 / $5600Asante Samuel Jr.LACRisky
It has been Gallup, not Brandin Cooks, who has shown to be the number 2 in Dallas. Gallup has a higher route, snap and target percentage than Cooks and is looking healthy again as well. While the Chargers have been an easy team to pass on, Samuel has been the bright spot in the secondary. He has an interception and several pass breakups and forced incompletions in his coverage and is the 12th highest graded cover corner on PFF so its not a great matchup for Gallup.
Courtland SuttonDEN$5200 / $6400L'Jarius SneedKCModerate
Kansas City does use Sneed to shadow and he will likely do so this week against Sutton. He does a good job in coverage with a 16% forced incompletion percentage, but in a game that Denver will likely be playing from behind, Russell Wilson will still look to Sutton with targets. Sutton had a real tough matchup last week but this is a better one and he should get back on track as one of Wilson's favorite targets and a red zone weapon if they actually get there this week. He is at a fair price in DFS to consider using in a game stack situation for sure.
Marvin JonesDET$3000 / $4700Jamel DeanTBRisky
With Amon-Ra St. Brown out last week, Jones saw the highest snap percentage of all Detroit receivers, but he also had the lowest target share. He only had 2 catches and 17 air yards so even with the top option out he wasn't a part of the offense. With ARSB trending to returning and the tight end LaPorta emerging, Jones is the 4th or 5th target at best and can't be trusted.
Romeo DoubsGB#N/ABye#N/ABye
Nico CollinsHOU$5600 / $6800Marshon LattimoreNORisky
It has been an up and down last few weeks with Collins but I told you here last week that the matchup scared me. The Atlanta secondary gave Houston trouble and they get another tough matchup this week. The New Orleans secondary is just outsied the top 5 best coverage grades on PFF and are coming off a shutout. In fact, there has only been 1 game so far where the New Orleans defense has given up more than 18 points in a game. While Collins is still the #1 in Houston, it is a tough matchup against Lattimore and the Saints defense this week.
Michael PittmanIND$6300 / $6500Darius WilliamsJACModerate
Williams has emerged as one of the best cover corners so far this season. He moved around with Stefon Diggs last week and even with him having a good game, Williams is still graded 13th of the 109 cornerbacks graded on PFF. It will be a fun matchup to see if he moves around with Pittman who will get agruably a better passing quarterback with Gardner Minshew replacing the injured Anthony Richardson for the next few weeks. Minshew will look to PIttman to make plays and it will be a good battle with Williams all game. I'll use PIttman in season long, but I think there are better options in better matchups in DFS this week.
Calvin RidleyJAC$6700 / $7000JuJu BrentsINDSafe
Piggybacking that last entry, one of the better options is Ridley at only a few hundred dollars more on both DFS sites. He gets a matchup against Brents who is allowing over a 73% reception percentage in his coverage and has given up 120 yards and a touchdown. Ridley is coming off of a strong game where he racked up 122 yards on 7 catches and should be able to continue the strong play in a plus matchup this week and find the end zone as well this time.
Skyy MooreKC$4000 / $5400Pat SurtainDENRisky
I say it every week, Kansas City's wide receiver room is a merry-go-round that I dont want to ride. Especially this week against Surtain, not knowing of its Moore, Toney, Rice, Watson... none of them playing the left side against Surtain can be trusted with any confidence this week.
Davante AdamsLV$8100 / $8300Jonathan JonesNESafe
New England's banged up secondary got Jonathan Jones back last week but he was hardly tested in a game where the Patriots got smacked around early and New Orleans didn't have to pass much. This week, Jones will get targeted plenty when he sees Adams who has a 33.3% target share on the season and is another week healthier. Last week might have been a Jakobi Meyers game, but there should be plenty of Adams targets and production this week in a good matchup.
Joshua PalmerLAC$4700 / $6200DaRon BlandDALRisky
Bland has stepped in seamlessly after Dallas lost Trevon Diggs for the season. He is tied for the league lead in interceptions and is playing really good football. Before last week's bye, Palmer got a heavy target share in the first game without Mike Williams but he ony caught 3 passes. We will see how they used the bye week to prepare the wide receivers without Williams, but until we see it and get a metter matchup, I'm going to hold off on starting Palmer.
Tutu AtwellLAR$5100 / $5500Antonio Hamilton Sr.ARIModerate
The return of Cooper Kupp did have an effect on Atwell, but the Rams do play plenty of 3 wide receiver sets and it is Atwell who is that 3rd. They traded away Van Jefferson this week which cemented what we already knew, but Atwell is going to be the 3rd fiddle behind Kupp and Puka Nacua. While Atwell did still play 89.3% of the snaps, he only had a 14.7% target percentage which was way down from his 21% season average. The matchup is good against Arizona, but with the decrease in target volume Atwell is a boom/bust DFS option and the price is too high for that.
Jaylen WaddleMIA$7600 / $6800D'Shawn JamisonCARSafe
We finally got to see the penguin waddle touchdown dance for the first time this season last week and I wouldn't be surprised if we saw it again this week. Jamison has allowed a 77.8% reception percentage and 2 touchdowns in his coverage this season. Its a great matchup for Miami to exploit this week and I expect them to do just that.
K.J. OsbornMIN$4400 / $6200Tyrique StevensonCHIModerate
I would like this matchup a lot against the Chicago secondary if it was still Justin Jefferson out here for Minnesota. Unfortunately he will be missing some time with his inujury so its Osborn who will assume his role outside with Brandon Powell moving into the slot. I do like the price for Osborn in DFS and in a plus matchup against the 4th lowest graded coverage secondary he should be able to capitalize on his increase in targets and put up a solid PPR floor in a sneaky potential shoot out game.
DeVante ParkerNE$3500 / $5200David LongLVRisky
New England's offense has been a dumpster fire but they have faced some strong defenses. They should rebound a bit this week against Las Vegas, but we dont know who it will be who benefits. Parker does get a great usage with the highest route and snap percentage on the team, so if you want to take a stab on him at a super low salary on DK you can throw the dart and make your bet that he's the one that benefits from the plus matchup against a beatbale secondary this week.
Michael ThomasNO$4900 / $5900Steven NelsonHOUModerate
Houston has been really good against the pass this season and their secondary is one of the best in coverage in the league. Nelson has yet to allow a touchdown in his coverage but he has allowed an over 70% reception percentage. We like Thomas as a high floor PPR guy with his 23.8% target share and 90% route participation. Its a tougher matchup, but the targets will be there and the DFS price is fair enough to use Thomas this week.
Jalin HyattNYG$3400 / $4600Christian BenfordBUFRisky
This is a giant messt rotation with Hyatt, Hodgins, Campbell and others seemingly in a rotation for the outside receiver role alongside Darius Slayton. Wan'Dale Robinson was getting a bulk of the targets but it was mostly out of the slot and hes banged up now too. All of the outside receivers are going to be risky starts until we see some clarity.
Garrett WilsonNYJ$6000 / $6900James BradberryPHIModerate
Bradberry had been playing in the slot for a couple of weeks but he is back outside where he is comfortable once again and that allows the Eagles to play sides with him and Slay which is one of the best cornerback duos in the league. Wilson is getting better quarterback play from Zach Wilson the past few games but still only managed 3 catches on 7 targets last week. Until the Jets offense looks more in sync and we get more consistent play from Zach WIlson, Garrett Wilson will be a touch below a safe option even though he is a very talented receiver.
A.J. BrownPHI$7800 / $8200D.J. ReedNYJSafe
On the other side of the same game, the Jets also have one of the best cornerback duos in the league with Reed and Sauce Gardner. Reed missed last week's game in the NFL concussion protocol but he has cleared it now and will be back this week. The Jets have a top 5 coverage grade and the 2 outside corners both rank in the top 17 i according to the PFF grades. Brown is still a stud, but this is a tough matchup for him this week so he gets a little downgrade.
Calvin AustinPIT#N/ABye#N/ABye
Brandon AiyukSF$6200 / $7700Martin Emerson Jr.CLESafe
Aiyuk once again led the San Francisco wide receivers in targets last week and has 378 receiving yards on the season and is averaging 14 yards per target. Emerson has done a good job forcing incompletions this season, but he has also allowed 20 yards per reception. Cleveland has a good defense, but Aiyul will do just fine.
DK MetcalfSEA$6800 / $7500Cam Taylor-BrittCINSafe
Off of the early bye week, Seattle gets a matchup with Cincinatti which has the highest expected point total of the week. This game has shootout written all over it with high powered offenses with plenty of weapons against defenses who give up points. Taylor-Britt has allowed 238 receiving yards in his coverage this season and this matchup sets up nicely for a well rested DK Metclaf at a very favorable DFS pricetag.
Mike EvansTB$7100 / $7600Jerry JacobsDETModerate
The only reason Evans isn't listed as a safe play is becuase of the hamstring injury. We likely wont know until the weekend if he will even play, but even if he does, theres a chance of the hammy tightening up and him coming out of the game. He has a history of hamstring injuries and is getting up there in age so it may not quick in just the 1 week he has had off. I do like the matchup against Jacobs, so if Evans is out, a sneaky DFS pivot would be Trey Palmer.
DeAndre HopkinsTEN$6000 / $6900Brandon StephensBALSafe
Hopkins put up a solid 22 fantasy points in a PPR league last week without even scoring a touchdown. He was targeted 10 times and caught 8 passes for 140 yards. Stephens has allowed 289 yards in his coverage this season. Its a plus matchup for a target monster in Hopkins.
Jahan DotsonWAS$4700 / $5700A.J. TerrellATLRisky
Dotson has been dissapointing thusfar and draws a tough matchup this week against a strong Falcons secondary. Terrell has done a nice job this season and allows less than 60% of targets thronw his way to get caught. With a negative matchup this week, it wont be the week that Dotson gets back on track and the matchup and slow start make Dotson risky this week.
Right WR vs Left CB
Wide ReceiverTeamDraftKings/FanDuelCornerbackOppMatchup
Michael WilsonARI$3800 / $5300Ahkello WitherspoonLARModerate
This is a good spot for Arizona pass catchers in a game that they will likely be playing from behind and needing to pass. They also just lost their running back, James Conner, which should also increase the passing volume. At these low salaries in DFS, Wilson is in a great spot to be a sneaky goo dplay this week. I believe his volume will pick back up after a blip last week and he will have a productive week 6 for fantasy football.
Mack HollinsATL$3300 / $5000Emmanuel ForbesWASRisky
Ho hum, another 2 target game for Hollins last week. It's hard enough to play the number 1 option in this passing offense, I surely can't recomment Holins.
Zay FlowersBAL$5600 / $6000Sean Murphy-BuntingTENSafe
Even with Beckham and Bateman back last week, the Ravens continued to move pieces around. Whether Flowers lines up outisde or in the slot, he is clearly the main receiver here with his 11 targets last week and 28.6% target share on the season. In a good matchup against the Tennessee secondary, Flowers is in a smash spot.
Gabe DavisBUF$5900 / $7000Deonte BanksNYGSafe
If they use Jackson to shadow Diggs, it leaves Gabe Davis in a plus matchup against Banks. Banks has given up 2 touchdowns in his coverage and Davis is starting to look like a safe option to use in fantasy. He has 4 touchdowns already and 320 receiving yards.
DJ Chark Jr.CAR$4000 / $6000Xavien HowardMIARisky
The Carolina outsdide receivers move around and rotate, but Chark sees the most snaps on the right side but only has an 11.4% target share on the season. Drawing the best corner in Miami this week, its not a good matchup to use Chark.
Equanimeous St. BrownCHI$3000 / $4600Byron Murphy Jr.MINModerate
Playing the right side in 3 wide sets, St. Brown only was targeted once last week and failed to catch the pass. Even with the plus matchup against Minnesota, he is nothing more than an exxtreme dart throw in DFS tournaments at min price.
Tee HigginsCIN$6400 / $7000Michael JacksonSEAModerate
Tee Higgins is questionable to play recovering from the fractured rib and was limited in practce so far this week. This outside spot could become Trenton Irwin again if Higgins doesnt go which is a big decline in talent. Since we dont know if he will play and how well he will play if he does, we will downgrade this from safe to moderate. If its Irwin, he'd be a DFS dart throw in a decent matchup against a beatable secondary.
Donovan Peoples-JonesCLE$3600 / $5200Charvarius WardSFRisky
With only 6 catches on 14 targets this season, DPJ has taken a back seat in this offense this year and gets a matchup this week against one of the best corners in the league. Pass.
Brandin CooksDAL$4600 / $4900Michael DavisLACModerate
Cooks has a better matchup thank Gallup this week so it could be one that sends more targets his way. Davishas given up 286 receiving yards on 23 catches in his coverage along with 4 touchdowns. This could be the week the volume picks up for Cooks with the nice matchup so look for him to get back on track with a good game this week.
Marvin MimsDEN$3800 / $5100Joshua WilliamsKCRisky
Mima is still seeing far less target and snap percentage than Brandon Johnson but I am willing him in by putting him in the article. When he is in thegame he is a big play waiting to happen and if Sneed is shadowing Sutton on the other side the Broncos may look to exploit the matchup of Mins' speed against Williams.
Marvin JonesDET$3000 / $4700Carlton DavisTBRisky
Jones played the highest snap share of any Detroit receivers last week, but unless you play in a point per block league he isnt't giving you much volume. Jameson Williams will continue to eat into his snap share and it is a good week to do that as the Bucaneers secondary can get beat with speed receivers. If it si Jones against Davis, it;s advantage Davis all day long
Christian WatsonGB#N/ABye#N/ABye
John MetchieHOU$3100 / $4800Paulson AdeboNOModerate
Tank Dell is still in concussion protocol and is unlikely to clear before this week's game. Metchie has stepped into his role in 3 wide receiver sets and could garner some addisional targets since Nico will be dealing with Lattimore on the other side.
Alec PierceIND$3300 / $5100Tyson CampbellJACRisky
Even with the "better passer" Minshew in th ere last week, Pierce only was targetd twice. With the rookie Josh Downs emerging from the slot, Pierce is falling down the pecking order and is a risky start.
Zay JonesJAC$4100 / $5800Jaylon JonesINDModerate
Returning to action last week, Zay Jones had to leave early but still saw 5 targets and scored. If he can get out there this week, it is a favorable matchup against a rookie 7th round pick in Jones.
Rashee RiceKC$4100 / $5600Damarri MathisDENModerate
Denver has the lowest coverage grade on PFF and Mathis in patricular is ranked 109 out of 109 graded corners. With Surtain on the other side, we should see a bump from Rice this week in playnig time and productivity, making him a poternially key differentiator for your DFS lineups..
Jakobi MeyersLV$5800 / $6700Rasul DouglasNESafe
We got the return of Jimmy G last week, and Meyers was a key to the game. He has 10 targets and 7 catched for 75 yards and a touchdown. This week he gets agood matchup against a beat up Patriots secondary. He draws J.C. Jackson who is ranked 97th of the 109 graded corners and should continue to be the main target on those short roumds
Quentin JohnstonLAC$3900 / $5300Stephon GilmoreDALRisky
Let' see how that Chargers come back from the break and see how they are goint to uttilize the receivers with the absense of Mike Williams. Against Dallas, who rank in the top 3 in coverage grade on PFF, Johnston is a risky start.
Puka NacuaLAR$8000 / $7900Antonio HamiltonARISafe
Puka showed us last week that he and Cooper Kupp can both play at the same time and both thrive. Puka still saw 11 targets and caught a touchdown, scoring over 20 fantasy points. Arizona is a bottom 3 coverage grade matchup so the crafty and talented rookie can continue his breakout season with another good game this week.
Tyreek HillMIA$9300 / $9800CJ HendersonCARSafe
This is a great spot for Tyreek Hill to bounce back from a down game last week. Carolina has given up 7 receiving touchdowns this season and Henderson had one of those in his coverage to go with his 173 yards allowed and 81.3% reception percentage. This is looking like a smash spot for HIll as long as they dont go up a lot early and take the foot off the gas instead of putting up 70 this time.
Jordan AddisonMIN$5700 / $6700Jaylon JohnsonCHIModerate
We finally got a good game out of Addison last week with a 6 catch, 64 yard performance with a touchdown. He was the teams leading receiver and should continue to operate in that capacity as the main target in Minnesota while Justin Jefferson is on the IL. We will need to see how Addison handles being "the man" before we can call him a safe play.
Kendrick BourneNE$4200 / $5700Marcus PetersLVRisky
He was held to 2 catches each of the last 2 weeks. Peters may have lost a step from his glory days, but still has something left in the tank and has the upper hand in this matchup so Bourne is a very risky start.
Rashid ShaheedNO$3700 / $5400Shaquill GriffinHOURisky
The Saints offense is condenses to Kamara, Olave and Thomas for the most part. There just isnt enough juice for Shaheed to be more than a touchdown dependant lotto ticket. Especially since Carr injured his throwing shoulder, he hasn't looked to push the ball downfield to Shaheed, probably because he cant with the shoulder strain.Houston has a top 5 cover secondary so Shaheed is a risky start.
Darius SlaytonNYG$4000 / $5600Kaiir ElamBUFRisky
Even with Robinson back and all the receivers healthy in New York, it is Slayton that continues to lead the Giants in snap and route percentage. The problem is that there are too many receivers in a rotation and now Waller is also running routes on the outside as well. There is too much ambiguity in this offense right now to confidently play anny pass catcher, especially in a matchup against a Buffalo defense that is going to pressure an already uncomfortable Daniel Jones.
Allen LazardNYJ$3700 / $5500Darius SlayPHIRisky
Slay did not practice on Wednesday but it was likely just a maintenence day. As long as Slay is out there it is a risky matchup for Lazard this week.
Devonta SmithPHI$7000 / $7300Sauce GardnerNYJRisky
The Jets secondary is very good and Sauce Gardner is one of the best young corners in the game. Smith has been fairly quiet the past few weeks and unfortunately that likely wont change much this week against Sauce.
George PickensPIT#N/ABye#N/ABye
Deebo SamuelSF$6100 / $7200Denzel WardCLEModerate
We haven't seen a big Deebo game in weeks and with a matchup against Ward, this week doesnt look to be the one we see it. Ward has a 21% forced incompletion percentage and a 54.2% reception percentage so he does a great job limiting receievers in his converage from catching and racking up receptions.
Tyler LockettSEA$5700 / $6600Chidobe AwuzieCINSafe
I mentioned before that I believe this game will be a shootout and thats a good thing for Lockett. He leads the team's receivers in target share and Route percentage so hes out there and still getting open. Awuzie has allowed a reception percentage of 85.7% so Lockett should be able to rack up the PPR points this week and moving forward.
Chris GodwinTB$6900 / $6300Cameron SuttonDETSafe
With Mike Evans still questionable with the hamstring injury, Godwin will need to step us as the main target for the Buccaneers. Sutton is a good corner, but he has allowed 214 receiving yards and a touchdown in his coverage and Godwin should see plenty of volume to capitalize.
Chris MooreTEN$3000 / $4400Marlon HumphreyBALRisky
You read that right, Chris Moore is back! He had a 62.3 snap share and route percentage last week but didnt have any catchesor even targets. Humphrey has only allowed 65 yards receiving in his coverage this season. With the lack of targets and a negative matchup against Moore, he would be a risky play this week.
Terry McLaurinWAS$5500 / $6900Jeff OkudahATLModerate
Okudah missed a little time but was still able to limit the receptions in his coverage to 2 catches for 35 yards. McLaurin has had some tough starts to the beginning of this season and unfortuantely this one against a strong Atlanta secondary will also be a challenge.

Top matchups in the slot for Week 6

Slot WR vs Slot CB
Wide ReceiverTeamDraftKings/FanDuelCornerbackOppMatchup
Chris OlaveNO$6600 / $7100Tavierre ThomasHOUSafe
Houston has a strong secondary but they are weakest in the slot. Tavierre Thomas is back at practice after a hand surgery and may be playing with a hand wrapped up in a club. He allowed a 100% reception percentage in the 2 games he played prior to the injury and the matchup is clearly in favor of the stud Olave.
CeeDee LambDAL$7400 / $7600Ja'Sir TaylorLACSafe
The Cowboys need to get back on track and get a good matchup against a Chargers defense that ranks in the bottom 5 in PFF coverage grades.They have given up 7 touchdowns and Taylor has allowed nearly 150 yards in his coverage and nearly 13 yards per reception. It is a good matchup for Lamb and the Cowboys to bouce back.
Amon-Ra St. BrownDET$7700 / $7800Christian IzienTBSafe
St. Brown is back at practice after missing last week's game. We know he is one of the most talented receivers in the game and he squares off with a rookie undrafted corner in Tamps Bay's Christian Izien. Izien has played very wekk so far this season, but he will be overmatched against a talent like St. brown this week.
Cooper KuppLAR$9000 / $8700Jalen ThompsonARISafe
Like he didnt miss a beat, Cooper Kupp returned last week and immediately led the team in targets with 12, receptions with 8 and yards with 118. Arizona has the 3rd lowest coverage grade on PFF and Thompson has allowed 172 receiving yards on 13 catches in his coverage, setting up for another monster game from Kupp this week.
Christian KirkJAC$5400 / $6600Kenny MooreINDSafe
Zay Jones may not play after reaggrivating hisinjury in last week's return. Kirk has seen a great target share over the past few weeks and has capitalized to the tune of 30 catches and 335 yards. Indianapolis has the 8th lowest coverage grade on PFF and Moore himself allows a 76.9% reception percentage. Kirk looks to be a strong play at a salary that seems too low in DFS.
Adam ThielenCAR$5900 / $7400Kader KohouMIAModerate
I dont love the older receiver in the Miami heat this week, but Thielen has been an absolute target monster. He has 38 catches on 46 targets on the season and nearly 400 yards to go with his 3 touchdowns. Carolina will likely be playing form behind so they will need to throw and Thielen knows how to get open. Kohou has allowed over an 85% reception percentage, 250 yards and 2 touchdowns in his coverage so it's a good matchup for Thielen if he can survive the heat and his quarterback can get him the ball.
Jerry JeudyDEN$6100 / $6300Trent McDuffieKCModerate
With a touch matchup on the outside for Courtland Sutton this week, Russell Wilson will need to look to his slot man Jeudy to get the passing game going after a tough game last week. With Sutton likely being shadowed by Sneed and the Broncos likely needing to keep up with the Chief's offense, Jeudy will have to be involved heavily this week. The target volume in a matchup against McDuffie who allows 10.4 yards per catch in his coverage makes Jeudy attractive this week.
Elijah MooreCLE$4300 / $5600Isaiah OliverSFModerate
The San Francisco secondary is a strong unit, but the way to attack them is in the slot. Oliver has allowed an 80% catch rate in his coverage and has given up nearly 150 yards and a touchdown. Its slightly risky because we may see PJ Walker at quarterback if Deshaun Watson misses another game, but that would mean even more that he will be looking for his slot guy on the short and intermediate routes so it can still be a solid play using Moore at a fair price on the DFS sites.
Josh DownsIND$4100 / $5600Tre HerndonJACModerate
The best we have seen Josh Downs is when Gardner Minshew is playing quarterback and with Anthony Richardson going on IR, its Minshew time in Indy. Last week, Downs caught all 6 of his targets for 97 yards and he seems to be stepping into that #2 role behind Michael Pittman Jacksonville plays a lot of zone and the rookie will need to find holes in the zone this week to take advantage of the matchup in a game they will likely need to score to keep up with the Jacksonville offense.
Tyler BoydCIN$4600 / $6100Coby BryantSEAModerate
Over the past 4weeks, Boyd is averaging nearly 8 targets a game and has shown why hes been a reliable asset in this passing game for years. With Tee HIggins questionable with the rib injury, more opportunity presents itself for Boyd. With Higgins either missing this game or playing less than 100%, the consistent volume we have seen from Boyd lately will continue and possibly even increase, making him a very playable option in your lineups at a good pricepoint in a game that has shootout potential written all over it.
