CPGM collaboration with @nostraballus Exploiting Fantasy Football Matchups in Week 1.
By: Matthew Lotshaw @nostraballus
The Rams offense gets a favorable matchup against the Khalil Mack less Oakland Raiders. Look for the Rams to take advantage of a secondary that registered only 5 interceptions last season.
The Chargers might be tough against the pass but they can be taken advantage of on the ground. They allowed the second most rushing yards per game last season and will be without DE Joey Bosa on Sunday.
The Bucs struggled to stop opposing offenses last season and gets a tough matchup this week against Drew Brees and company. Yes they improved their defensive line in the off-season but they will be without CB Brent Grimes on Sunday.
The Browns were stout against the run last season but struggled against the pass. The Steelers receivers and tight ends will be matched up against the Browns inexperienced secondary.
The Colts secondary gets back safety Malik Hooker but their corners leave a lot to be desired. Andy Dalton and company will look to take advantage of this matchup early and often.
Philip Rivers and the Chargers receiving core gets a sweet matchup as Eric Berry is injured and Marcus Peters is gone from a defense that struggled to stop the pass in 2017.
He’s Back! David Johnson returns and gets a nice matchup against a Redskins team that gave up the third most rushing yards in 2017. The Skins defense added some beef up front but it may not be enough against DJ.
Last year playing your tight end against the Giants was easy money. The Giants still have a weakness in the middle of the field making Austin Seferian-Jenkins a sneaky play.
The Bills was porous against the run last season after trading DT Marcel Dareus. Insert Alex Collins in your lineups to take advantage of this matchup.
The Dolphins undersized linebacker core had a difficult time against the run last season while also failing to slow down pass catching backs out of the backfield. Both Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis have a favorable matchup here.
