Last Updated: October 4th, 2022

The chart below breaks down how many fantasy points a defense allows to wide receivers from the slot vs. out wide and the percentage of the overall production that goes to the middle of the field vs. the perimeter. This data can help you take the next step in figuring out which players to start each week based on where most of their production comes from during the season. 

This analysis only counts fantasy points that a wide receiver generates in the receiving game. Any rushing and passing fantasy points have been excluded.
