WR2 matchups are an interesting piece of the fantasy football puzzle as different guys occupy different roles. When looking at the wide receiver options for each team I identify the top WR target, followed by the 2nd WR target who I label as the WR2 for that offense. This article should help give you an idea of which matchups you should be targeting heading into week 6 of the 2017 season.
Week 6 Wide Receiver 2 Matchups
|Defense||% Allowed vs Average||% Allowed vs Average||WR2 Affected|
Couple of moving pieces to keep an eye on this week. Mohamed Sanu is questionable, trending towards doubtful so I expect Taylor Gabriel to be the WR2 for a week in ATL. Markus Wheaton appears to have ascended to the WR2 role for a Bears offense that will struggle with consistency as their rookie QB Trubisky finds his way in the NFL.
Washington looks like a bad matchup on paper, but owners in deep leagues or playing DFS on Draftkings / Fanduel in week 6 may want to consider Marquise Goodwin coming off a big week against the Colts. Josh Norman is out 2-4 weeks meaning the Redskins defense may be a bit more susceptible to the pass than normal.
