WR2 Matchups | Week 6 2017

Marvin Jones leaping in the air to catch a touchdown for the Detroit Lions

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.

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.
