Fantasy football is a weekly game, so knowing the matchups can help you make the best lineup decisions. By utilizing our play-by-play data, we're able to identify defensive schemes and where each wide receiver and cornerback lines up on each play. By tracking these WR/CB matchups, including potential shadow situations, we can offer the best projections, rankings, sit/start decisions and fantasy advice each week.

Below are the receivers with the best and worst matchups this week, as well as the corresponding fantasy impact.

To view the primary defenders the top three wide receivers for each team will see this weekend, be sure to check out our weekly WR vs. CB cheat sheet.

Unless otherwise noted, references to where teams rank in statistical categories adjusts to a per-game basis in order to avoid distortion due to bye weeks.

Advantageous matchups

Buccaneers' Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones vs. Steelers' Ahkello Witherspoon, Cameron Sutton and Levi Wallace

The Buccaneers' pass-heavy offense is back and it will benefit from an excellent Week 6 matchup. The Steelers are struggling badly against wide receivers, allowing the most fantasy points overall, as well as the second most to the perimeter and fourth most to the slot. Pittsburgh has allowed the most yards (1,106) and TDs (nine) to the position. Eight wide receivers have already burned them for 16-plus fantasy points and five of the eight reached 23 points. Injuries are part of the issue, as Witherspoon has missed the past two games, and both Sutton and Wallace left Sunday's blowout loss to Buffalo early. Upgrade the entire Buccaneers' pass offense.
