We are looking ahead at Week 10 to find the elite matchups for wide receivers against corners. Using Pro Football Focus's ratings as a base, we are able to get an advanced look at what matchups we can take advantage of. Defense against opposing WR's is grabbed from FootballOutsiders. They matchups are broken down into the top tier matchups, middle tier matchups, and matchups to possibly fade. Now the opposing cornerback may not always be on the highlighted receiver, but this is a look at who the highlighted receiver will likely see most of the game. Not every number one cornerback covers the opposing team's wide receiver. They usually stay on their side of the field, and on occasion can shadow a number one. I will continue to edit it during the week, if there is given news of a switch in matchups. Blown coverage equals great matchups, zone coverages suggest they are toss-ups, and lockdown coverage is pretty self explanatory. Premium access grants you the full article.
|Wide Receiver||DraftKings||FanDuel||Cornerback||Matchup Grade|
|Sammy Watkins||$4,800||$6,400||Kevin Johnson||B|
|Sterling Shepard||$5,500||$5,700||K'Waun Williams||A|
|Aldrick Robinson||$3,600||$5,000||Eli Apple||B|
Probably not a name you were expecting to see here, but Aldrick Robinson saw eight targets last week, and gets Eli Apple this week, who has allowed 0.38 F/R. This isn't an efficient passing game, but he is worth a look in GPPs as a WR3 flyer. Adam Humphries is someone I am looking to take advantage of Mike Evans' absence, and by that I mean just catch the targets thrown his way. Buster Skrine has allowed 0.37 F/R this season, and will see Humphries in the slot. He is an excellent DK play this week for bare minimum.
