5 WR/CB Matchups to Target
We start this list with a player who is coming off a one-catch and 11-yard performance. Beasley may not seem like a good play, considering he has failed to reach double-digit fantasy points since Week 9. In fact, he's hit that mark just three times since Week 4.
Still, his matchup is too good to avoid, as Murphy-Bunting has been the weak link in Tampa’s secondary since returning from injury.
According to PFF’s WR/CB matchup chart, Murphy-bunting is targeted more than any other corner, but he has also given up the third-most fantasy points per route and second-most receiving yards per coverage snap. Josh Allen has a pristine matchup he can take advantage of in the slot, and Beasley has a much higher ceiling than usual because of it.
WR Elijah Moore, New York Jets vs. CB Marshon Lattimore, New Orleans Saints
There’s nothing left to question with Moore — he’s arrived, and he’s here to stay. Just three wide receivers have scored more fantasy points since Week 7. His WR4 ranking is proof of how well he’s played, and he’s dealt with a carousel of three different quarterbacks throughout that span.
It doesn’t matter who’s back there anymore, as Moore is proving he’s nearing matchup-proof and quarterback-proof type of talent, similar to DeAndre Hopkins of years past.
Moore’s matchup against Lattimore is tremendous. The Saints are a good defense overall, but the corner has given up a stunning 738 yards and seven touchdowns in coverage, both of which are the second-most at the position. He has been susceptible on 20-plus yard passes, with no cornerback giving up more yards or touchdowns on passes traveling that distance this season.
