Have you ever wondered why it’s socially acceptable to have breakfast for dinner, but not to have dinner for breakfast? It’s bizarre, right? It’s basically the exact same idea, just turned around the other way. It’s one of those norms that we’ve just decided is okay to flout – but only in one particular direction.
That brings me to the purpose of this column, which encourages fantasy managers to consider wide receiver/cornerback matchups when setting their lineups. I consider that factor important, but it would be silly if I thought the be-all, end-all of a fantasy receiver’s startability came from the value of the defender lining up across from them.
