The NFL’s Week 11 slate presents plenty of intriguing battles at arguably the most important positions for fantasy football and DFS purposes — the isolated wide receiver and cornerback battles. After getting a chance to review and analyze the matchups, I’ve identified the most and least exploitable matchups of the week.
Listed below are five wide receiver versus cornerback matchups to target and five to avoid in Week 11 of the 2020 NFL season.
5 WR/CB Matchups to Target
Formerly known as WR1, Thomas has now been on the field for two weeks since his return from a multitude of injuries that sidelined him for an extended period of time. Thomas has totaled 13 targets over his past two outings, reeling in seven of those for only 78 yards and no scores. While the stat line isn’t pretty, Thomas does lead the wide receiver room — and by a wide margin — in target share (22.8%). Expect better days, potentially as soon as Week 11.
He has an incredibly advantageous matchup against Sheffield, as the Atlanta cornerback has allowed 499 yards into his coverage (sixth-most among cornerbacks) while surrendering the most fantasy points per route among all NFL cornerbacks, per PFF’s WR and CB matchup chart.
