Each week I will be taking an in-depth look at the best and worst matchups for fantasy football players at each position. This first edition will take a closer look at two wide receivers who have favorable week one matchups and two wide receivers with less than desirable opponents.

Following Jordy Nelson‘s injury in which he tore his ACL and will be out for the year, Davante Adams nabbed the No. 2 wide receiver spot in Aaron Rodgers‘ offense. With Randall Cobb as the obvious No. 1 target, Adams will rely more so on his red zone targets. Adams stands at 6’2″ and will take advantage of the Chicago Bears weak secondary. If you own Adams, he is a must start unless somehow you have three WRs on your roster that have higher upside than him.
