Exposed: Week 14

Check out this week's Exposed, where Aaron Rudnicki and I take a look at some of the best and worst matchups for receivers and tight ends. Here is a sampling of the goods:

GOOD MATCHUPS 
A.J. Green, WR, CIN vs. PIT ($8,500)Marvin Jones, WR, CIN vs. PIT ($6,200) 
Miglio: The Pittsburgh Steelers cannot stop the pass, at least not against quality opponents. The last time A.J. Green faced this defense he posted 11 receptions for 118 yards and a touchdown. He makes for an excellent cash game option, whileMarvin Jones can be a sneaky good GPP play. 
Rudnicki: The Steelers improved their pass defense by benching struggling corner Antwon Blake, but it wasn’t just one player causing all their problems so they are certainly still vulnerable. Despite a strong game against the Colts last week, they were also torched for 5 pass TDs to Seahawks WRs a week prior. With a Vegas total of 50 points, this game should be high scoring so it’s probably not a bad idea to target several WRs in this matchup and Green and Jones are both strong threats to find the endzone. 
BAD MATCHUPS  
Charles Clay, TE, BUF @ PHI ($5,100) 
Miglio: The Eagles gave up a touchdown to Scott Chandler last week, but those have come few and far between for opposing tight ends. Charles Clay isn’t exactly the most consistent tight end in the league, either. 
Rudnicki: The Eagles have proven to be a tough defense against opposing tight ends this year, despite significant struggles elsewhere. Clay has shown flashes of his ability with some big games, but he has also had an inconsistent role in the Bills offense. The Eagles pass rush seemed to heat up last week, and Clay could be kept in to block quite a bit given some key injuries to the Bills offensive line.
