Wide receiver 3/4 matchups for Week 15: Sleepers and busts

We should have high confidence in these matchups.

We’re only talking about matchups that meet good/bad matchup criteria for the whole season, the last five weeks and the last three weeks. If a matchup doesn’t fit in all three categories, then it has to have a significant number in the last-five-weeks and last-three-weeks.

The players are ordered based on season-long adjusted fantasy points allowed. The numbers next to the names are fantasy points allowed by position and the NFL rank in that category in the last five weeks. For receivers we’ve included the yards the defense has allowed per game to that receiver type.

Week 15 projections

Week 15 matchups: PASS | RUN | WR1 | WR2 | WR3/4 | TE | RB (Rec.)

Top WR3/4 matchups

Marqise Lee vs. Baltimore — 60.1 yards, 3rd

Derek Hagan vs. New York Jets — 59.1 yards, 4th

Wes Welker vs. San Diego — 57.1 yards, 6th

Louis Murphy vs. Carolina — 56.2 yards, 7th

Markus Wheaton vs. Atlanta — 55.4 yards, 8th — It would be too crazy to start every Steelers wide receiver this week, but not starting Ben Roethlisberger and a receiver or two would be a mistake.

Worst WR3/4 matchups

Brandon Tate vs. Cleveland — 31.2 yards, 1st

Jeremy Ross/Corey Fuller vs. Minnesota — 32.5 yards, 2nd

Stevie Johnson/Brandon Lloyd vs. Seattle — 32.8 yards, 3rd

Brian Hartline vs. New England — 35.9 yards, 5th

Andre Roberts/Leonard Hankderson vs. New York Giants — 39.7 yards, 9th
