Fantasy football is all about the matchups, especially when it comes to wide receivers versus corner backs. Remember when fantasy matchup analysis used to be “Team A gives up the most fantasy points to wide receivers”? Well, we’ve moved from analog to digital and now look at matchups on an individual level. Each week, I dig through the actually coverage tendencies for all 32 NFL teams and compile this information in the WR/CB Matchup Chart, which is released on Thursday mornings.

Week 10 matchup upgrades

Julio Jones vs. Dallas – Forget about the dropped touchdown last week. Jones went over 100 yards in that contest, and played really well to boot. He’s an extremely strong play this week with a plus matchup on tap. Jones will see primary coverage from Jourdan Lewis, who has allowed three touchdowns on 29 targets this season.

A.J. Green vs. Tennessee – The Bengals standout got tossed last week, leaving fantasy owners with a big-time dud. But don’t despair. Green is poised to bounce back in a big way with primary coverage projected to come from Adoree’ Jackson. The first-rounder has been heavily targeted in his rookie season, and currently ranks fourth among all corners with 56 targets thrown into his coverage. Expect plenty of action for Green on Sunday.
