Check out a new tool exclusively from FullTime Fantasy.
This new featured tool displays how each defense performs against their opponent’s receiving yardage gained by position.
So for example, if you see a team is ranked 1st vs. WR #1, that defense is currently the best at limiting their opponent’s WR #1 yardage compared to other teams. Or if you see a team is ranked 32nd against WR #2, that defense is the worst against WR #2’s or more accurately, the defense is allowing the most yards to WR #2’s compared to the other teams in the league. This a great tool to find and exploit useful matchups. Don’t forget to check out the all the positions as well (WR #1, WR #2, Other WRs, TE & RB).
This week's article is for our subscribers only, so the chart below is a sneak preview of just the data for WR1s. For more analysis of the other positions like WR2s, TE and RBs, plus Week 9’s interesting matchups to watch, check out the full article at FullTime Fantasy.

INTERESTING MATCHUPS TO WATCH
TB WR Mike Evans vs. ARI DB Patrick Peterson
The only player hotter than Evans in the NFL over the last three weeks has been Christian McCaffrey. Evans gets a matchup with an Arizona defensive unit that is allowing the fifth most yards per game to opposing top receivers.
However, Peterson missed the first six games of the season due to suspension and is expected to shadow the on-fire receiver.
Still, in the three games since returning, Peterson has allowed 82.4% catch rate, 204 yards, and two touchdowns. Continue to roll with Evans and expect another huge performance out of the big wideout.
