2016 Fantasy Football: Wide Receivers Matchup Chart







By Chet Gresham - @Chet_G
Follow @walterfootball for updates.

Each week, I will provide our loyal readers with a matchup chart for each NFL position.

Check out the other positions: Quarterback | Running Back | Tight End

My method is to rank each defense in different categories and then average those rankings into a single ranking. So below, you will see how well defenses performed against quarterbacks based on completion percentage allowed, passing yards allowed, touchdown passes allowed and so on and so forth. Remember, the numbers are how they ranked in that category. The higher the ranking the worse the defense performed. So as you can see in the chart, Green Bay ranks the worst against wide receivers and Denver the best so far this season.
