Week 7 Fantasy Football Defensive Matchup Exploitation: WR

The most and least favorable fantasy football wide receiver defensive matchups for Week 7.

Keenan Allen

Last week, top receiver defenses like the Texans, Titans, Cardinals, and Browns all shut down opposing wide outs, leaving tight ends and running backs to lead the way. This week, it’s Dwayne Bowe, Anquan Boldin, Larry Fitzgerald, and anyone in Seattle that’s unstartable against seemingly brutal matchups.

Jordy Nelson is probably the only one worth a start, though, since he’ll likely be Rodgers’ top target all game. Defenses are good, right up until the point that they run into Aaron Rodgers.

Same goes for the Broncos receivers, obviously.

On the positive side, Dez Bryant, Mike Wallace, Reggie Wayne, Josh Gordon, Vincent Jackson, Brandon Marshall, Victor Cruz, Keenan Allen, DeSean Jackson, and Justin Blackmon all have very good-looking matchups and are must-starts.

T.Y. Hilton, Alshon Jeffery, Hakeem Nicks, and Julian Edelman look like solid plays too.

Let’s take a look at all of this week’s fantasy football wide receiver matchups.
