This article is part of our On Target series.
What a week for WR/CB matchups last week was! Michael Thomas had his best game of the season against supposed shutdown corner Marcus Peters, while on the other side, Cooper Kupp seemed entirely unbothered by the presence of P.J. Williams. Corey Davis again led the Titans in targets but was unable to score against Byron Jones, Courtland Sutton ceded targets against backup corners to Jeff Heuerman, and Davante Adams only got 40 yards against Stephon Gilmore. Now it's on to the good, bad and interesting WR/CB matchups of Week 10.
Gilmore and the Patriots are one of the few teams in the NFL that still use a shadow corner. Offensive coordinators are moving their No. 1 wide receivers around before the snap so often that it has become a difficult task to have one corner responsible for one WR. However, New England has done so with Gilmore and had massive success doing so. Davis is a very popular DFS pick this week, but he will shadowed by Gilmore who has one of the best coverage grades in the PFF database, allowing only 0.22 fantasy points per route run against. I am still full steam ahead on CD in cash, but may trim back in GPP.
