Patriots Julian Edelman, 49ers Matt Breida Have Intriguing Matchups

Patriots Julian Edelman, 49ers Matt Breida Have Intriguing Matchups
Austin Webster November 22, 2018 12:05AM EDT

Fantasy Football matchups to exploit in Week 12

WRs vs CBs

Julian Edelman vs Buster Skrine

The Patriots offense has had its ups and downs over the past three games, but Edelman has been consistent regardless. He has seen at least ten targets in all of the three games and had at least 90 total yards in the games. He will have the best matchup of the Patriots’ receiving weapons against the Jets and should be able to continue his streak of good games. The Jets have allowed the most receiving yards to slot receivers and Edelman should lead the Patriots in receiving this week. I expect a get-right game from the Patriots’ offense and Edelman can post an 8/110/1 line to lead the way.

Calvin Ridley vs Eli Apple

Ridley has another chance this week to burn the Saints’ secondary. His best game by far in his rookie season was the one he had against the Saints in Week Three when he picked up 146 yards and three touchdowns. He has yet to top 80 yards in any other game. The Saints have done better at limiting opposing wide receivers, but Eli Apple is still a weak spot at cornerback for them. Marcus Lattimore should focus in on limiting Julio Jones, giving Ridley the preferred matchup. With a point total of 60 set by Vegas and the Falcons likely being in comeback mode against the Saints, Ridley has big time upside.

D.J. Moore vs Shaquill Griffin

The Panthers seem ready to fully unleash Moore for the remainder of the season. He is getting the majority of the snaps over the past few weeks and had a season high eight targets this past week against the Lions. He was extremely productive on those opportunities with 157 yards and a touchdown and there is no reason for the Panthers to go away from him. He will have a favorable matchup this week against Shaquill Griffin, who has allowed the 15th-most receiving yards in coverage among cornerbacks. I expect Moore to use the confidence he gained from last weeks’ outburst to have another big week.

Alshon Jeffery vs B.W. Webb

Jeffrey has gone quiet the last few weeks, but a matchup against the Giants might be exactly what he needs to get going. His best game of the season came against the Giants earlier this year when he caught eight passes for 74 yards and two scores. He is expected to see mostly B.W. Webb, who has been only ok in coverage this year and was just a depth corner coming into the season. He is certainly beatable. Getting Jeffery going would be a big spark for the Eagles’ offense, and this is a great spot for him to do it.

Anthony Miller vs Teez Tabor

Miller is risky this week with Chase Daniel likely being the starting quarterback for the Bears, but it is a juicy matchup against the Lions. Over the past four weeks, the Lions have allowed the second-most Fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Miller faced off against them just two weeks ago, when he went off for 122 yards and a score. He will benefit from Darius Slay likely shadowing Allen Robinson and having the very beatable Teez Tabor on him. Tabor has allowed a perfect passer rating to quarterbacks this year and a lot of yards when he is on the field. If Daniel can hold his own, Miller is a sneaky good play this week.

RBs vs DEFs

Gus Edwards vs OAK

Going into last week, it seemed like it was going to be a breakout game for Alex Collins. However, Gus Edwards had other plans, as he ran well with his opportunities and the Ravens completely turned to him in the second half. He ended up seeing 17 carries and picked up 115 yards and a touchdown. With how well he performed, it seems like a safe assumption he has overtaken Collins as the lead back. He will get a beautiful matchup against the Raiders to further cement himself as the lead back this week. The Raiders have allowed the most rushing yards to running backs this year. Edwards seems primed for another big week, especially if Lamar Jackson starts at quarterback again.

Nick Chubb vs CIN

Chubb is coming off a game against the Falcons where he looked like one of the best running backs in football. He ran for 176 yards and did it very efficiently with 8.8 yards a carry. He is in a great spot to build on that game going against the Bengals who have allowed the most Fantasy points to running backs. Chubb has seen at least 18 touches in all of his games since Carlos Hyde has been traded and has the ability to go over 100 yards again this week.

Sony Michel vs NYJ

Before Michel went down with an injury in Week Seven, he was performing as one of the best Fantasy running backs. In PPR scoring, Michel was the ninth highest scoring back from Weeks Four to Six. He was getting an elite amount of touches and carries in the red zone. Now coming off the bye week, he should be back to 100 percent. It will be a positive game script for Michel, as the Patriots will likely be doing some clock chewing in the second half with a lead. Michel can get up to 20 carries with the good game script and has the ability to score at least once.

Matt Breida vs TB

Breida has been about as banged up as a player can be without landing on IR, but coming off a bye week he should be ready to feast on the Buccaneers’ defense. Saquon Barkley was able to torch them for 152 total yards and three scores last week. This game also projects to be high scoring with the over/under set at 54.5. Breida is one of the top playmakers on the 49ers’ offense and I expect him to rack up a healthy number of yards and find the end zone in what should be an offensive game.
