The best and worst fantasy WR matchups in Week 12 based on corners

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 actual coverage tendencies for all 32 NFL teams and compile this information in the WR/CB Matchup Chart, which is released on Thursday mornings.

Remember, the chart only contains data from the present season. For those who would like to do historic research on coverage responsibilities, I suggest checking out the 2015 Coverage Data Chart. We also released a new feature this season, the Shadow Coverage Matrix, which breaks down every shadow coverage situation for every team throughout the season. Also, if you’re curious how tight ends perform on a per route basis, check out our tight end route data chart.

    Start One NON PPR STAND LEAGUE: Sheppard or Moncrief ?? What do I do Jeff ??

    • Football JZ

      Go with Sheppard. Luck isn’t playing today so Moncrief has Tolzien starting at QB. The Colts are hoping Tolzien has Thanksgiving miracle somewhere in his pea shooter of an arm, but we all know that won’t happen.

    Should I start Hill, T. West, C. Coleman, or Ware at two spots in Flex and RB in PPR.
