The Week 14 Sunday slate is jam-packed with a ton of intriguing storylines and matchups between teams fighting for a playoff spot or seeding. It is incredibly important that we nail our decisions in fantasy football and DFS with the season winding down and the playoffs now beginning.
That is why I’ve analyzed and identified the five most desirable and the five least desirable wide receiver and cornerback matchups to target in Week 14.
5 WR/CB Matchups to Target
Metcalf is a good start in most weeks, let’s be honest here. He currently ranks third in fantasy points at the receiver position and has the most receiving yards of any wideout (1,119 yards). But he is entering this contest after putting together a relatively quiet five-catch performance that led to 80 yards on eight targets in Week 13.
He couldn’t have a more picture-perfect matchup this Sunday, though, with Jackson lining up across the field. No disrespect to Jackson, but he is not good at playing the deep ball — and that’s exactly where Metcalf wins. On passes targeted 20-plus yards down the field, Jackson has surrendered the 16th-most yards (172) and the most touchdowns (three) among all cornerbacks. He also allowed Henry Ruggs III to score a 46-yard game-winner on a vertical this past week.
Expect Metcalf to absolutely dominate this matchup, providing a top-three ceiling and a top-six floor at the position.
Cooper has come back to life over the past four weeks. In that time frame, the elite receiver has seen a strong 22% target share in an offense with arguably three No. 1 wide receivers. In addition to that positive workload, his 236 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns easily lead the team over that same time frame.
