Exposed: Week 6

Check out this week's Exposed, where Aaron Rudnicki and I cover good and bad matchups for wide receivers and tight ends. Here is an excerpt:

Mike Wallace, WR, MIN vs. KC ($5,400)Adam Thielen, WR, MIN vs. KC ($4,500) 
Miglio: The Kansas City Chiefs have not been very good on defense. That is especially true for that secondary, one that has allowed the most fantasy PPG to opposing receivers. Having faced a gauntlet that includes DeAndre HopkinsDemaryius ThomasRandall Cobb, and A.J. Green hasn’t helped matters, but guys like Marquess Wilson and Brandon Tate have also scored on the unit. That’s where low-priced options like Adam Thielen come into the picture -- he actually got more snaps than rookie counterpart Stefon Diggs last week. Of course, if Charles Johnson and Mike Wallace make it back from injury, Thielen's appeal disappears. Wallace looks to be on track to play, which makes him a rather enticing option at that price.  
Rudnicki: The Chiefs have surprisingly been the most generous matchup for receivers this year with 11 touchdowns allowed. Things have improved since Sean Smith returned from suspension, but they still had trouble with the Bears last week who were without their top two wideouts. The Vikings could also be without two or three of their top receivers this week, which should create a lot of opportunity for players further down the depth chart. Both Wallace and Thielen productive against a much tougher Broncos secondary in their last game, and you have to think they will find things even easier here. 
Travis Benjamin, WR, CLE vs. DEN ($6,300) 
Miglio: The Cleveland Browns offense is clicking like a metronome set at 140 BPM thus far this season. But a rendezvous with the NFL’s best defense could bring the beat to a halt. 
Rudnicki: Josh McCown is on a roll, but it should all come crashing to a halt this week when the Broncos pay a visit. Chris Harris and Aqib Talib make things difficult for almost every receiver they face, and have combined to allow just one touchdown to an opposing receivers all season.
