This tool is designed to highlight matchups to exploit. This tool is not meant to be a replacement for our weekly player rankings, although matchups are taken into consideration for those as well. You shouldn't bench a stud player who has a difficult matchup or automatically start a fantasy backup who has an easy matchup.

This page uses 2012 stats only, while some of our other tools like Easiest Upcoming Matchups and Strength Of Schedule use the last 16 games of data.

Green signifies a good matchup, red a bad matchup and white an average matchup.
