RosterWatch Week 10 Matchup Tool Now Available

alex bylineWelcome back.

This is a proprietary weekly tool provided by RosterWatch for our PRO community.

It is designed to be a decision-making tool for gauging the defensive opponents your fantasy players face. If you are new to this, our time-tested and most popular flagship in-season tool, the instructions for use couldn’t be simpler, and can be found below.

RW PRO users can download the matchup tool (or access the online tool for use) in the downloads section of their profile by clicking HERE.

DO NOT RELY ON “FANTASY POINTS AGAINST” as your primary indicator for player matchups ever again. It is a flawed metric, as you’ll see, which will cause you heartache and struggle.

The rankings represented here are derived via a proprietary algorithm which takes into account not only standard “fantasy points against” metrics, but also (and most importantly) weighted averages and medians of separate individual player and defensive-unit scouting grades for members of the 2020 unit that will be run-stopping, pass-rushing, or covering against the position in question, along with other analytic trends including projected game-script, game-flow, Vegas indicators, volume of total snaps and much, much, more.



To use the tool, think about your fantasy player.

Let’s say you own Rams WR Cooper Kupp, and would like to see how he matches up against the defense he faces this week.

First, look down the list and find the Rams (Kupp’s team). You will see that the Rams’ opponent (OPP) is the Seahawks in Week 10, and there are four color-coded cells in the horizontal columns marked “OPP vs. QBs,” “OPP vs. RBs,” “OPP vs. WRs” and “OPP vs. TEs.”


They are not the rankings for the RAMS, but rather, for the OPPONENT THEY FACE IN THIS GIVEN WEEK (the SEAHAWKS). In the “OPP vs. WRs” cell for the Rams, you’ll notice a big, blue ‘No. 1’. This means Kupp faces our best possible matchup for opposing WRs in Week 10 (the Seahawks). This is a great indicator for owners Kupp and other healthy Rams wideouts, and is a positive one for those thinking of rostering them in DFS contests.

Repeat the same process for other players on your roster as you are trying to decide which players to start and which to sit in season-long leagues. Also use it to identify which upside-plays to roster in DFS contests based on matchup.

With the launch of the online tool, you can now sort by any column: vegas line, over/under, and matchup ranks vs. each position for easy reference. The Vegas lines are updated hourly for your reference and research.

“1″ is the best (easiest) matchup, “32″ is the worst (toughest).

      Fulgham and Fuller stick out for your 2 x WRs

      For your flex a few of these players are bunched together. If it was my team I’d lean to Gordon and Higgins. But it should be noted Mooney is set up well this weekend.

  2. Also need 2 WR’s and a flex
    A Rob, Fulgham, Godwin, D Parker, Juedy, C Davis, J Taylor, D Freeman J Taylor McKinnon,

    Deep deep dynasty question trade question. Malcolm Brown vs DeeJay Dallas? I have Dallas. Malcolm Brown is an UFA in 2021 and if he leaves LAR after the season does he have any long term value on another team?
