Sometimes defensive matchups aren’t important. Calvin Johnson, A.J. Green, Keenan Allen, Josh Gordon, and the Broncos trio are all still startable against their tough matchups. On the other hand, guys like T.Y. Hilton, Marques Colston, Anquan Boldin, and Cecil Shorts could very well run into some trouble in their games. Of those, Hilton is likely the most startable.

On the favorable side though, we see great matchups for Pierre Garcon, Santonio Holmes, DeSean Jackson, Riley Cooper, Antonio Brown, Andre Johnson, Vincent Jackson, Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, and the receivers in Seattle and Miami. I’d stay away from anyone in Kansas City since not one has proven reliable and the Bills receivers for the same reason.

Let’s take a look at how all of the receiver matchups are shaping up for Week 11.
