Exposed: Week 7

This week's Exposed piece is out. Check out who Aaron Rudnicki and I think have the best and worst matchups for Week 7. Here is a sampling of this week's goodness.

John Brown, WR, ARI vs. BAL ($6,700)Michael Floyd, WR, ARI vs. BAL ($4,900) 
Miglio: Despite throwing for 414 yards last week, Carson Palmer and the Cardinals could only muster 13 points. That is only the second time in NFL history a quarterback has thrown for 400-plus yards and scored so few points. Though it was a disappointing day, his receivers did alright. Michael Floyd had the game’s only touchdown, though, and it could have been a sign of things to come for the big wideout. He was targeted eight times -- often in the red zone -- and wound up being a great GPP play. This week he gets an atrocious Baltimore defense at home, as does the rest of that wide receiver corps. While Floyd is strictly a GPP option, John Brown is a nice addition to any cash or GPP lineup. 
Rudnicki: The Ravens secondary is a disaster this year. Jimmy Smith can’t seem to cover anybody, and Lardarius Webbsat out last week with a hamstring injury so he may not be 100% here. Brown finally blew up last week with a huge game vs the Steelers (10 catches, 196 yards), and Floyd is coming off his best game of the year as well. Everybody loves Larry Fitzgerald, but these players look like better values.
Jordan Matthews, WR, PHI @ CAR ($6,600) 
Miglio: Not that you should have a terrible amount of confidence in Jordan “Crisco Hands” Matthews these days, but don’t look for a huge game from him against the Carolina Panthers. He has been unable to produce in far better matchups, and cornerback Josh Norman and Co. will make life more difficult for him in Carolina. 
Rudnicki: Matthews works primarily out of the slot for the Eagles so that may help him avoid facing off against the best corner in the league this year in Josh Norman. However, the Panthers defense has only given up five passing touchdowns on the season and figure to make things very difficult for Sam Bradford here.
