We take you through some of the best wide receivers going in the wild card round for fantasy football

The one good thing about the Saints not getting a bye is that we get to use their offense this week in fantasy. Michael Thomas is in a smash spot and way ahead of the field, which mostly has some question marks for the better players.

DeAndre Hopkins faces Tre-Davious White, Julian Edelman is hurting and averaged 37 yards and no touchdowns over his last three games, Tyler Lockett faces an Eagles defense that allows the fewest fantasy points to slot receivers, A.J. Brown will likely see Stephon Gillmore, and Stefon Diggs will take on Marcus Lattimore. These receivers and cornerbacks are why these teams had made it this far, and it will be interesting to see them matchup, but it does cause fantasy dilemmas.

Things will open up for players like D.K. Metcalf, Adam Thielen, Will Fuller (if he plays), and Corey Davis/Jonnu Smith while Cole Beasley and John Brown get good matchups. There will be plenty of role players that will have their roles expanded as well.

Good luck in your fantasy playoff endeavors!
