Fantasy Football WR/CB Matchup Report Week 8

Left WR vs Right CB
Wide ReceiverTeamDK / FD $CornerbackOppMatchup
Marquise BrownARI$5200 / $6500Brandon StephensBALSafe
Brown has seen at least 7 targets in every game this season since week 1. Stephens has allowed 10.2 yards per reception and 356 yards in his coverage but no touchdowns. Its a farily neutral matchup but the volume Brown sees in negative gamescripts makes him a safe floor play in a PPR.
Drake LondonATL$5100 / $6700Kristian FultonTENSafe
We are finally getting some consistency with London and he has produced double digit PPR fantasy points in 4 straight games. Tennessee is good agaist the run and middle of the road against the pass. If Atlanta can't get the ground game going, it will be London who benefits with added targets.
Odell Beckham.BAL$3800 / $5400Marco WilsonARISafe
Getting healthier now, Beckham's snap share went from 40.8% to 56.7% in week 7, but it still isnt great. He led the team with a 25% target share so he is involved enough to trust safely in a matchup against an Arizona secondary that has the lowest PFF coverage grade of any defense in the league.
Stefon DiggsBUF$8900 / $8900Jamel DeanTBSafe
Diggs is averaging over 11 targets a game and over 22 fantasy points in PPR leagues. He gets a matchup against Jamel Dean who has allowed a 76.9% catch rate and 2 touchdowns in his coverage. The price tag is high in DFS, but the consistent volume and a favorable matchup in a "get right" spot for the Bills offense is all making Diggs a good play this week.
DJ Chark Jr.CAR$3800 / $5800Steven NelsonHOURisky
It has been Chark who comes off the field most of the time in 2 receiver sets but even with a 67.6% snap share in week 6, he had the second most targets on the team. Carolina is trying to get Mingo more involved in the offense and now has had a bye week to plan how to do that. Chark's arrowis pointing down and it make him a risky play against a very good Houston secondary.
DJ MooreCHI$6300 / $7500Asante Samuel Jr.LACModerate
Even with Tyson Bagent at quarterback, Moore still saw 9 targets and caught 8 of them. Bagent at quarterback led to a lot of short, quick passes which got the ball in Moore's hands quickly to make a play. In a game where Chicago should be playing from behind and needing to throw, there should be plenty of targets to Moore to make him a good floor play, even against a highly graded corner in Samuel.
Ja'Marr ChaseCIN$8100 / $8500Deommodore LenoirSFSafe
Chase was red hot going into the bye last week and was getting a massive target share with Higgins banged up. He is the main target no matter who they play and he gets the better matchup against the San Francisco secondary facing Lenoir who has allowed 373 receiving yards in his coverage so far this year.
Amari CooperCLE$6200 / $6600Tariq WoolenSEAModerate
Woolen is a good corner, but he has allowed a 72.7% catch rate and 2 touchdowns in his coverage so far this year. Even with a backup quarterback, Cooper is seeing a 22.9% target share with his 97.5% route participation. The problem, like we saw lat week, was that even if he sees 8 targets he only caught 2 passes which only led to 4.2 fantasy points. The shaky offensive situation takes Cooper down a notch from his usual safe status.
Michael GallupDAL$3400 / $5500Derion KendrickLARRisky
In week 6, before last week's bye, we saw Gallup have a heavy target share with 10 targets but he only reeled in 3 of those targets for 24 yards. He will be out there with his 70% snap share, but he is 3rd or 4th target at best in this offense. The Rams are a weak coverage secondary, but Kendrick has been playing well and I believe Dak will be looking more at his other receivers this week.
Courtland SuttonDEN$5300 / $6900L'Jarius SneedKCModerate
The good: Sutton is clearly the favorite target of Russell Wilson, he has been a redzone target and is finding the endzone, and the Broncos will likely be playing from behind and needing to throw. The bad: he will likely see a shadow coverage from L'Jarius Sneed who has notallowed a touchdown in his coverage yet this season. Sutton is a good start in season long but the tougher matchup downgrades him a little for me this week.
Jameson WilliamsDET$3600 / $5300David LongLVModerate
We saw the snap percentage almost double last week for Williams. He played 22.9% of the snaps in week 6 and 44% in week 7. He had a goose egg last week, but he did see 6 targets which was the second highest among Detroit wide receivers. The offense struggled as a whole last week, but get a chance to bounce back against a Las Vegas secondary who has allowed near 1,400 yards and 9 touchdowns on the season. Williams is fairly boom/bust, but he can certainly get behind this defense for a big play or two this week so hes a great DFS dart throw at this price.
Romeo DoubsGB$4900 / $6700Akayleb EvansMINSafe
It was a quiet game for Doubs last week, but he did catch a touchdown to save his day. He actually should have had 2, but one bounced off his hands and was caught by Jayden Reed. He tied for the team lead in target share and is clearly a favorite target of Jordan Love, especially in the red zone, which is great for fantasy. Minnesota's secondary has allowed 10 touchdowns in their coverage this season and with Watson nursing a knee injury, there could be even more going to Doubs this week. He is a solid mid-range salary DFS play this week.
Nico CollinsHOU$5500 / $7200Donte JacksonCARSafe
We have seen a nice little breakout for Collins this season and coming out of the bye he has a good matchup to continue his ascension. Carolina is a bottom 10 coverage secondary in PFF grades and Jackson has allowed 19.2 yards per reception. A number like that says he is a guy who can get beat for big plays and he has also allowed 2 touchdowns. I like Collins as a steady floor play who also has a high ceiling in this matchup.
Alec PierceIND$3400 / $5100Marshon LattimoreNORisky
Pierce played every snap last week, but only saw a 13.6% target share. It appears that Josh Downs has leapfrogged Pierce in the target pecking order, With a matchup against a solid corner in Lattimore and a decrease in target volume, Pierce is off the radar for me this week.
Calvin RidleyJAC$5800 / $6800Levi WallacePITModerate
What is going on with Ridley? After an exciting week 1, he has been a huge dissappointment. We heard Howard Bender say this week on the SiriusXM show that Ridley managers should be patient and that better matchups are ahead and that starts this week. Wallace has allowed 4 touchdowns in his coverage this season and grades as the 103rd cornerback of the 115 graded on PFF. I am cautiously optimistic and it's hard to call him "safe" yet, but I like the matchup this week for him to produce and he will be fairly low owned in DFS so hes a great GPP play.
Marquez Valdes-ScantlingKC$3200 / $5400Pat SurtainDENRisky
The captain of the Kevin Tompkins "All-Exercise Team" gets one of the league's best corners in Surtain this week. Even though he did have a good game last week and caught a touchdown, I dont see lightning striking twice in the same place. No thank you.
Davante AdamsLV$8000 / $7500Jerry JacobsDETModerate
He got his targets in his squeeky wheel game last week but it was still Meyers who caught the touchdown. Getting Jimmy G back should help, but Adams seems very frustrated and with the lack of production lately it is hard to spend up at his high DFS price for him against Jacobs who has 3 interceptions this season.
Joshua PalmerLAC$5200 / $6700Tyrique StevensonCHISafe
Last week Palmer had a 98.4% snap percentage, 100% route percentage and a 23.3% target share. This week, he gets to pair that solid usage with a great matchup against Stevenson who is graded 98th in coverage of the 115 graded cornerbacks on PFF. He has given up 5 touchdowns in his coverage already and that total should increase this week.
Tutu AtwellLAR$4400 / $5400Da'Ron BlandDALRisky
Thanks to a touchdown, Atwell got to 10 fantasy points last week but that 1 catch for a 31 yard touchdown was his only catch. He is a clear 3rd behind Kupp and Nacua and the lack of volume is a bit scary. I love the talent, but with a low target share and a matchup against Bland who has been playing very well and has 3 interceptions, Atwell comes with some risk.
Jaylen WaddleMIA$7500 / $7100J.C. JacksonNESafe
The touchdown streak came to an end last week but Waddle still caught 6 passes for 63 yards and gets a nice matchup this week against Jackson who is ranked 96th of 115 in PFF coverage grade. The Dolphins should be able to light up the scoreboard against the depleated New England secondary and Waddle will be a big part of that.
Jordan AddisonMIN$5700 / $7300Rasul DouglasGBModerate
We saw the Jordan Addison breakout game last week on national television when he went for 123 yards and 2 touchdowns in prime time. The matchup is a tough one against Douglas who is the 7th highest graded corner on PFF, and it looks like Jaire Alexander will be back on the other side so moving him around wont help much. The 23.3% target share is nice, but the matchup is not and he should be highly rostered in DFS after last weeks performance so I'm looking elsewhere.
DeVante ParkerNE$3200 / $5000Eli AppleMIARisky
Demario Douglas is starting to cut into Parker's snap share and more importantly, into his target share. Parker is on the decline and is too risky to start with Douglas seemingly taking his role. If we see the same thing we saw last week, it will be Douglas in this spot in next week's article.
Michael ThomasNO$4900 / $6000Darrell Baker Jr.INDSafe
The trend continued last week and Thomas has seen at least 6 targets every game this season. This week he gets to match up against Baker who is the lowest graded coverage corner on PFF and is allowing 16.4 yards per recpetion inhis coverage. Thomas is still underpriced in DFS and with the plus matchup and heavy target volume, Thomas is a must start this week for me.
Jalin HyattNYG$3100 / $4800D,J, ReedNYJRisky
Hyatt is trending upwards with an increase in snap share to over 70% last week. He led wide receivers with a 18.5% target share. Even with the increase in volume, Hyatt is a risky start this week against a strong Jets secondary.
Garrett WilsonNYJ$6300 / $7200Deonte BanksNYGSafe
On the other side of the same game, Banks is a very beatable corner who allows 10.8 yard per reception in his coverage. Wilson is fresh coming out of the bye and is the clear cut alpha receiver in New York. The volume will be there and the matchup is solid so Wilson is a safe play this week.
A.J. BrownPHI$8000 / $8700Kendall FullerWASSafe
Even against Fuller who is a top 5 graded cover corner on PFF, Brown is always in play. In a tougher matchup this week, I dont think Brown will get 15 targets again this week, but he always has a stable floor and is always a start in season long. In DFS this week, I may look to pay down to Smith this week in a better matchup. More on that later.
George PickensPIT$5600 / $7400Montaric BrownJACSafe
The Steelers receivers do move around, but when Pickens is on the left side this week he will get the better matchup against Brown who has given up a pair of touchdowns in his coverage. They should keep him there enough for him to pay off his DFS salary with his solid volume in the passing game.
Brandon AiyukSF$7000 / $7700Cam Taylor-BrittCINModerate
It looks like Deebo Samuel will miss this week as well but Brock Purdy is now in concussion protocol so it will be Sam Darnold at quarterback this week. Cincinatti will put up points and San Francisco will have to pass, but I am downgrading Aiyuk a bit this week with the backup quarterback and more attention coming his way from the defense.
DK MetcalfSEA$6800 / $7500Martin Emerson Jr.CLEModerate
I loved the matchup last week but Metcalf didnt play and Bobo scored instead. DK is back at practice now but a banged up Metcalf against a strong Cleveland defense isn't as safe as he usually is. Hes still a play in season long, but too risky to use at his salary in DFS.
Mike EvansTB$7200 / $7700Christian BenfordBUFModerate
Evans is averaging over 8 targets per game and has 4 touchdowns on the season. The Buffalo secondary is good, but Benford has allowed a 72.7% reception percentage and 12.6 yards per reception in his coverage. If Buffalo jumps out to a lead, Tampa will have to throw to keep up and that will give Evans the volume we need.
DeAndre HopkinsTEN$5500 / $6600A.J. TerrellATLRisky
It was announced that Malik Willis and Will Levis will both play in this game and with that being the case, its hard to know what to expect from the Tennessee offense this week. Atlanta has a solid secondary as well and Terrell will likely shadow Hopkins, so with a tough matchup and tons of uncertainty, Hopkins is risky this week.
Jahan DotsonWAS$4500 / $5400James BradberryPHIRisky
Something is off with Dotson this season and the matchup against Bradberry and the Eagles secondary is a tough one this week. Until we see him get going he is going to continue to be a risky start, especially in negative matchups like this one.
Right WR vs Left CB
Wide ReceiverTeamDraftKings/FanDuelCornerbackOppMatchup
Michael WilsonARI$3600 / $5300Marlon HumphreyBALSafe
The DFS price tag continues to be too low on Wilson who is playing over 80% of the snaps and seeing the second most targets among wide receivers in Arizona. They are usually playing from behind so that leads to Wilson getting taregted more and having opportunities to cash in the discounted pricing.
Mack HollinsATL$3300 / $5000Sean Murphy-BuntingTENRisky
London and the tight ends have seen an increase in volume and production, but theres still not enough meat on the bone for Hollins. He is even starting to lose his job to Van Jefferson so now more than ever he is a no.
Zay FlowersBAL$5600 / $6500Kei'Trel ClarkARISafe
Flowers has seen more than double the amount of targets of the next highest targeted receiver and he has 39 receptions compared to the rest of the receivers that are in the teens. The volume continues to be there and this week he faces an Arizona secondary that has the worst coverage grade in the league according to PFF coverage grade.
Gabe DavisBUF$5700 / $6500Carlton Davis IIITBRisky
After 4 straight games with double digit fantasy points, Davis crashed back to earth last week with only 4 catches for 27 yards over the past 2 games. The Buccaneers secondary as been playing decent and Davis has yet to allow a touchdown in his coverage this season. I prefer the matchup for Diggs and with the huge decrease in volume Davis is a risky boom/bust option.
Jonathan MingoCAR$3400 / $4900Shaquill GriffinHOUModerate
Coming out of the bye week, the Panthers handed over the offensive play calling to Thomas Brown who will bring some Sean McVay type creativity to this offense that needs it. They have been trying to get the ball to Mingo and now Brown should be able to find ways to do that. Even in a tougher matchup against a good Houston secondary, the price tag in DFS with his target share makes Mingo a nice DFS dart throw.
Tyler ScottCHI$3000 / $4900Michael DavisLACRisky
Scott has worked himself into a larger role in the Chicago offense playing a 56.3% snap share last week. He did see a 10.7% target share and has the whole backup WR/backup QB practice chemistry narrative going for him. The Chargers are the 5th worst coverage secondary and it is a good matchup so at min salary on DK, Scott could be a contrarian dart throw in GPP lineups, but he is still risky with the limited role and backup quarterback.
Tee HigginsCIN$5900 / $6800Charvarius WardSFModerate
Higgins had the bye week to get one more week healthier so he should be back to his normal self this week. The problem is that he matches up against Charvarius Ward who is a top 20 cover corner who has only allowed 1 touchdown in his coverage this season.
Donovan Peoples-JonesCLE$3100 / $5100Devon WitherspoonSEARisky
Peoples-Jones caught more than 1 pass for only the second time this season in last week's game. He caught 2 for 22 yards. Especially with PJ Walker playing quarterback, DPJ can't be trusted.
Brandin CooksDAL$4600 / $5300Ahkello WitherspoonLARModerate
I have a feeling that coming out of the bye, the Cowboys will be looking to get Cooks more involved to help take some pressure off CeeDee Lamb. He gets a good matchup against a Rams secondary that has the second lowest coverage grade on PFF. I want to see the target share increase before I can call him safe, but I think it's coming this week in a plus matchup.
Marvin MimsDEN$3300 / $4700Jaylen WatsonKCRisky
The lack of volume alone makes Mims a risky play. He only saw 1 target last week on a scary 30.5% snap percentage. That said, Denver will likely be playing from behind against Kansas City and needing to throw so with his big play ability and low salary, you could use Mims as a DFS dart throw in GPP contests this week.
Josh ReynoldsDET$4100 / $5900Marcus PetersLVModerate
With the emergence of Jameson Williams, it is Reynolds who has taken a bit of a step back. He is still seeing the second highest snap percentage on the team but only saw a 6.1% target share last week. The Las Vegas secondary is weak and Peters has allowed 250 yards and 2 touchdowns in his coverage this season. Hes a sit in season long with no bye weeks, but is at a reasonable salary to think about using in DFS GPP tournaments is a contrarian play in a plus matchup.
Christian WatsonGB$5100 / $6300Byron Murphy Jr.MINModerate
Watson had the touchdown in his first game back but only has 8 catches and went down with a knee injury at the end of last week's game. He looks like he will play this week but he wont be at full strength. Murphy is a good matchup so I would like to call him safe, but with the knee issue and lack of production I will downgrade him to moderate.
Robert WoodsHOU$4000 / $5400CJ HendersonCARBye
Interestingly enough, Woods is neck and neck with Nico Collins in targets on the season. His 21.7% target share is nice to see and he gets a good matchup against Henderson who is the 106th ranked cover corner on PFF. The ceiling is not very high, but he is flex-worthy and worth consideration at a favorable price in DFS in a plus matchup.
Michael PittmanIND$6500 / $7100Paulson AdeboNOModerate
Pittman plays the most snaps on the right side so he will avoid Lattimore plenty and see more of Paulson Adebo. He got his second touchdown of the season last week and Gardner Minshew is still looking PIttman's way plenty. The tough matchup downgrades him a bit, but he is still a starter in your season long lineups.
Christian KirkJAC$5900 / $7000Patrick PetersonPITSafe
We will continue to ride Kirk and his hot streak this week. He is leading the Jaguars in targets, receptions and receiving yards despite a week 1 where he only caught 1 pass and scored his team leading 3rd receiving touchdown last week. Pittsburgh is allowing over 30 PPR points per game to outside receivers and Peterson has given up 4 touchdowns in his coverage as well.
Rashee RiceKC$5000 / $6000Fabian MoreauDENModerate
Finally it seems like Patrick Mahomes is beginning to trust Rice more and we saw him lead Chiefs receivers in targets last week while catching 5 passes and scoring a touchdown. He is a dynamic playmaker and is now seeing a 65.2% route percentage. As long as he stays on the opposite side of Surtain as much as possible, Rice is certainly playable with his increasing role in this high powered offense.
Jakobi MeyersLV$6200 / $6900Cameron SuttonDETSafe
So last week Adams was targeted more after complaining about his usage, but Meyers still led the team in targets with 13 and caught the lone touchdown. Regradless of who has been at quarterback, Meyers has stepped up and has been one of the better values in fantasy drafts this year. Sutton has allowed 280 yards in his coverage and with the gamescript likely favoring the Raiders needing to throw, Meyers is once again a safe play with his 23.9% target share.
Quentin JohnstonLAC$3500 / $5200Jaylon JohnsonCHIRisky
After Mike Williams went down there was a debate on if it would be Palmer or Johnston who filled the void. It has pretty clearly been Palmer and the rookie Johnston still looks to be adjusting to the NFL game. Add to that the fact that Jaylon Johnson is the #2 graded cover corner on PFF and has only given up 10 catches in his coverage this season and that makes Johnston even more risky.
Puka NacuaLAR$7900 / $8000Stephon GilmoreDALSafe
After a season low 6.6 fantasy points in week 6, Puka bounced back with 8 catches on 12 targets for 154 yards and 23.4 fantasy points in a PPR league last week. Dallas has a good secondary and Gilmore is still a solid cover corner, but as long as Puka keep producing, he has to be started in all season long leagues regardless of matchup.
Tyreek HillMIA$9500 / $9500Jonathan JonesNESafe
One of the best players in the league against a beat up New England secondary with backup corners is yummy delicious. My only concern is that Miami gets out to a big lead and stops passing, but in order for them to get the lead, there will likely be a lot of Hill involvement. Keep an eye on Hill's health, he sat out Wednesday's practice with a hip injury and could potentially sit this game out if its bad, especially since they should be able to handle New England with or without Hill.
K.J. OsbornMIN$4700 / $6400Jaire AlexanderGBRisky
Osborn is playing a 92.9% snap percentage but with the emergence of Jordan Addison, Osborn will only see a 10-15% target share most weeks. In a tough matchup this week against strong Green Bay outside corners, Osborn is a risky start,
Kendrick BourneNE$4700 / $6200Xavien HowardMIAModerate
We are seeing the emergence of a true number 1 receiver in New England from Bourne. He has 16 catches on 18 targets in the past 2 weeks and also scored last week. Miami has allowed the 6th most outside wide receiver fantasy points per game and New England will likely be trailing and throwing the ball. With the new increased role, I am starting to trust Bourne more.
Rashid ShaheedNO$3900 / $5600Jaylon JonesINDRisky
Shaheed saw 8 targets last week but only caught half of them for a total of 28 yards. New Orleans threw a ton last week and that volume wont always be there. Shaheed is too boom/bust to not be a risky start, especially when I like the matchups for the other New Orleans receivers.
Darius SlaytonNYG$3400 / $5400Sauce GardnerNYJRisky
The snap percentage is there, but the target percentage is not. Slayton also gets Sauce Gardner and the tough Jets secondary this week so he is even more of a risky play this week.
Allen LazardNYJ$3400 / $5300Tre Hawkins IIINYGRisky
Lazard has only caught 14 passes on the season but he is the clear #2 on the Jets. He is playing an 87.2% snap percentage and is out there enough that he could be a sneaky DFS play at a low salary, but a risky one nonetheless.
Devonta SmithPHI$6700 / $6900Benjamin St-JusteWASSafe
It has been a dissapointing start to the season for Smith who has had some drops and needs to get on track. I like the matchup for him this week where he will get more St-Juste while Brown gets Fuller and more safety attention. Im feeling a Smith week this week and believe he gets involved in the scoring in this one.
Diontae JohnsonPIT$5000 / $6400Darius WilliamsJACModerate
In his first game back from injury, Johnson only played a 67.2% snap percentage but still had a 26.1% target share. He had 12.9 fantasy points and he should continue to ramp up and get even more involved this week. Darius Williams has been playing out of his mind this year but he still allows a 65.2% reception percentage in his coverage so Johnson can still get his with a solid target share.
Ray-Ray McCloudSF$3000 / $5000DJ Turner IICINRisky
Deebo is looking doubtful again this week but I cant recommend McCloud with any confidence, even as a DFS dart throw. There were other low salary options earlier in the article that I prefer much more than Ray-Ray.
Tyler LockettSEA$6000 / $6700Denzel WardCLEModerate
I believe Seattle will struggle this week against the Cleveland defense. Lockett gets a tough matchup against Ward who is still one of the better corners in the league. Lockett is still playable in season long, but I dont love him in DFS lineups this week in a tough matchup.
Chris GodwinTB$6900 / $6500Dane JacksonBUFSafe
Godwin led the Buccaneers with a 29.3% target share last week but it has been Mike Evans who is scoring the touchdowns. Godwin is yet to find the endzone this year but he is still seeing a 24.9% target share and has racked up nearly 400 yards on 33 receptions. He is averaging about 12 and a half fantasy points per game even without scoring so if he can get in the endzone this week in a game that Tampa will likely have to throw a lot, he should be able to pay off nicely in DFS and season long lineups.
Treylon BurksTEN$3900 / $5200Jeff OkudahATLRisky
Burks should be returning this week after practicing in full, but he comes back to a messy quarterback situation and a tough matchup against the Atlanta secondary. Its not the time to use Burks this week.
Terry McLaurinWAS$5300 / $7000Darius SlayPHIModerate
Historically, McLaurin has played really well against the Eagles. The Washington has struggled lately and only managed to score 7 points last week against the Giants. They face an even tougher Philly defense this week and the matchup against Slay is a tough one for Terry. He will still see the volume, but he is downgraded for me in a tough matchup with a struggling offense.

Top matchups in the slot for Week 8

Slot WR vs Slot CB
Wide ReceiverTeamDraftKings/FanDuelCornerbackOppMatchup
Cooper KuppLAR$9000 / $9100Jourdan LewisDALSafe
Last week was a down game for Kupp with only 2 catches but he still saw 7 targets. He has 28 targets in his 3 games and they will keep coming this week in a matchup against the weakest of the Dallas corners. Gilmore and Bland are good on the outside so Stafford and Kupp should look to attack Lewis all game in a matchup that Kupp has a big advantage.
CeeDee LambDAL$7600 / $7800Cobie DurantLARSafe
Coming off the bye and looking to get back on track, Dallas gets a good matchup against the Rams who have the 2nd worst coverage grade on PFF. Durant ranks 92nd of 115 cornerbacks ranked and has allowed 270 receiving yards in his coverage. The matchup sets up nicely for Lamb to be a good play this week.
Amon-Ra St. BrownDET$8200 / $8500Amik RobertsonLVSafe
JACKPOT! Amik Robertson is one of the worst corners in the league so St. Brown has one of my favorite matchups of the week. Robertson has allowed 182 yards and a touchdown in his coverage and has only played in 5 games. He allows 14 yards per reception and what I love the most is that he has allowed 122 yards after reception. I see ARSB with the opportunity for a lot of nice catch and run big plays this week.
Keenan AllenLAC$8500 / $8800Kyler GordonCHISafe
Gordon has allowed an 80% reception percentage in his coverage this season. Allen is a target monster averaging over 10 targets per game and averaging over 22 fantasy points per game in a PPR. He has gone over 20 PPR points in half of his games this season and I wouldnt be surprised to see it again this week.
Adam ThielenCAR$6600 / $8200Jimmie WardHOUSafe
Speaking of target monsters, Thielen has 59 targets which is a 26.8% target share on the season so far. He has double digit fantasy points in every game since week 1 with the lowest in that span being 15.2 points. He has been super consistent and a reliable safety blanket for his rookie quarterback Bryce Young.
Chris OlaveNO$6400 / $7300Kenny MooreINDSafe
I really dont think Olave is fully healthy, but he is still a big factor in this offense. He gets a matchup this week against Moore who has allowed a 75.7% reception percentage along with 254 yards in his coverage this season. Olave saw 15 targets last week and has seen double digit targets in 5 of the first 7 games this season. The volume alone, even not at 100%, makes Olave a safe floor play.
Josh DownsIND$4800 / $6100Alontae TaylorNOSafe
Similar to a couple of the other matchups above, Downs gets the worst of the 3 Saints cornerbacks which gives him the best matchup of the Colts receivers. He has also shown a rapport with Gardner Minshew so that should continue this week as Minshew tries to avoid throwing towards Lattimore and Adebo by peppering Downs with targets instead of going outside.
Elijah MooreCLE$4100 / $5700Jamal AdamsSEAModerate
With Coby Bryant still banged up, Seattle has been used Adams in the slot covering slot receivers. Adams is more known for his tackling and big hits, not his coverage skills. He has allowed a 70% reception percentage but they have been short passes, only 4.4 yards per reception. We could be seeing a backup quarterback again in Cleveland so PJ Walker limits the upside of the whole offense, but it's still a decent enough matchup for the #2 target on the team to do enough to get us a double digit fantasy performance in a PPR.
Curtis SamuelWAS$4200 / $6000Elli RicksPHIModerate
Samuel has been outplaying Jahan Dotson and looks to be Sam Howell's #2 receiver so far. He is seeing the targets and gets a matchup against backup cornerback Eli Ricks. Philly has a great outside corner duo so McLaurin and Dotson will have their hands full, and that will force Howell to look even more at Samuel in the middle of the field.
Jerry JeudyDEN$5400 / $5900Trent McDuffieKCModerate
Jeudy has been really disappointing this season so far and he is still yet to find the endzone. Kansas CIty has been playing good defense, but with Sneed likely to shadow Sutton and the Broncos likely playing from behind, they will have to throw and it will be Jeudy with the plus matchup. McDuffie is a decent corner, but he has allowed 249 yards in his coverage this season.
