Entering week 6 we have a number of elite WR1 matchups to take advantage of. From TY Hilton to Deandre Hopkins, owners will be salivating at the thought of the fantasy points coming their way. When setting your fantasy football lineups take a look at the wide receiver one matchups outlined below, but keep in mind with just five weeks of data thus far there are still going to be a few outliers. When in doubt, start your studs.
Week 6 Wide Receiver One Matchups | 2017

The Washington Redskins appear to be a horrific matchup for Pierre Garcon, and that normally would be true thanks to Josh Norman, however Josh is out 2-4 weeks meaning Pierre’s matchup is much better than it looks on paper. If you’re debating whether or not to start Pierre this week, I’d go with start as San Francisco will find ways to get him the ball.
Sammy Watkins on the other hand.. his matchup is exactly as tough as it appears. The Jaguars may have the best corners in football, and Sammy was already struggling to see targets. Expect a lot of Todd Gurley and not much Sammy Watkins this week against the Jaguars.
