We are back with some more FanDuel picks for Week 4. If you happened to read and even better use last week’s picks, you should have cashed and even placed in some tourney’s. Both lineups did very well, and although the Monday night game was a little nerve wracking, Aaron Rodgers and James Jones pulled through.
I won’t guarantee similar results this week, but I will certainly try and would love to get a three week cashing streak going. Every week is different but there are some similarities already which I hope to take advantage of this week.
Each week I will be listing players at each position I am targeting and likely using in many lineups. I will also be sharing my actual lineup(s), perhaps not all of them, but at least one cash game (50/50 & H2H leagues) and one GPP game (Tournaments/Guaranteed contests).
I will be focusing on FanDuel for this post, and will be sharing other lineups over on Athlon Sports as well as Twitter. If you are new to the game have fun, don’t go overboard, and hopefully we will win some moolah together this season.
Let’s get to the FanDuel picks.
Week 4 DFS Targets (Sunday and Monday Games)
Remember a Starting DFS Lineup on Fanduel consists of 1-QB, 2-RB, 3-WR, 1-TE, 1-K, and 1-DST
Scoring: ½ point PPR
Offense: RuY = 0.1pts RuTD = 6pts PaY = 0.04pts PaTD = 4pts I = -1pts ReY = 0.1pts ReTD = 6pts Re = 0.5pts KR/TD = 6ptsPR/TD = 6pts FU/L = -2pts FU/TD = 6pts 2PC/S = 2pts 2PC/P = 2pts FGu20 = 3pts FGu30 = 3pts FGu40 = 3pts FGu50 =4pts FGo50 = 5pts PAT/P = 1pts
Defense: DE/S = 1pts DE/FR = 2pts DE/RTD = 6pts DE/FRTD = 6pts DE/BRTD = 6pts DE/XPR = 2pts DE/RTD = 6pts DE/RTD= 6pts DE/SF = 2pts DE/B = 2pts DE/I = 2pts DE/PA0 = 10pts DE/PA1-6 = 7pts DE/PA7-13 = 4pts DE/PA14-20 = 1ptsDE/PA28-34 = -1pts DE/PA35+ = -4pts
Much like Pitching in DFS Baseball, Quarterbacks are an important and vital part to your lineup each week. However, you do not always need to spend up on Quarterbacks. In cash games it is recommended to target a top 5 quarterback.
Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo Bills vs. New York Giants ($7,600)
Taylor has been surprisingly good, and last week he was equally as good as Week 2. I am not expecting the same production this week, but in a few GPP lineups and even a few cash games Taylor’s feet, accuracy (so far) and weapons make him more than serviceable. He is now a legitimate Fantasy Quarterback (Averaging 23.1 FanDuel Points per Week).
Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders at Chicago Bears ($7,000)
After an abysmal Week 1, Carr and the Raiders have poured it on. With weapons like Amari Cooper, Latavius Murray and other talented receivers, Carr has a nice stable of weapons. He faces the hapless Bears defense this weekend. One can hope they don’t dominate too early and they rely solely on the ground game (Averaging 17 FanDuel Points per Week).
Karlos Williams, Buffalo Bills vs. New York Giants ($6,300)
I know I am not alone on this bandwagon but I am riding it heavily this weekend. Much like last week with Devonta Freeman, Williams will likely be inheriting the workload while LeSean McCoy recovers. Like Freeman, Williams has shown his talent and ability when playing so a heavier workload should equate to great things. Once you see his average as a backup back, you will begin drooling (Averaging 13.1 FanDuel Points per Week).
Latavius Murray, Oakland Raiders at Chicago Bears ($7,500)
Murray’s price saw a $500 bump, but he is still worth it this week facing the Bears. If Carr starts off hot and fast, Murray will be a part of it, and if they dominate, he will surely have a bigger role. Either way he is talented and will be a big part of the offense in Week 4 (Averaging 16.4 FanDuel Points per Week).
Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons vs. Houston Texans ($9,400)
This could be cut and paste every week at this point. It doesn’t matter who is covering him, what rank of defense it is, etc. If Julio Jones is on the field, he is fantastic and cannot be covered. Basically if you can plug him in, you do! Save on your RBs and we will do just that once again (Averaging 28.3 FanDuel Points per Week).
Percy Harvin, Buffalo Bills vs. New York Giants ($5,700)
Harvin returned to practice and looked good. He has played well this season already and with an injured Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy, his speed and versatility will certainly be utilized. That spells opportunity and production (Averaging 12.1 FanDuel Points per Week).
Allen Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts ($6,500)
Robinson, after a non-existent Week 1, has been coming into his own and his immense talent is beginning to shine. Blake Bortles has also pleasantly surprised this season and although it isn’t often pretty, he has been racking up yardage. Facing a superior Colts team means plenty of passing and I like Robinson’s chances this week. Allen Hurns capitalized last week, but make no mistake, Robinson is the top option in Jacksonville (Averaging 14.2 FanDuel Points per Week).
Jordan Reed, Washington Redskins vs. Philadelphia Eagles ($5,600)
Reed has been putting up very good Fantasy numbers for a tight end not named Rob Gronkowski, and this week I expect more of the same facing the Eagles. Reed has become a big and safe target for Kirk Cousins and he should capitalize this weekend once again (Averaging 13.2 FanDuel Points per Week).
Matt Bryant, Atlanta Falcons vs. Houston Texans ($4,800)
I can’t give in-depth analysis for kickers, or even defenses for that matter. When it does come to them in Fantasy, it is all about opportunity and this week the Falcons will be able to move the ball and score plenty, but the Texans stiff defense may do better than most at keeping them out of the end-zone. You know what that means? Field Goals!! ( Averaging 10 FanDuel Points per Week)
Carolina Panthers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($4,800)
Where there is a rookie quarterback who takes risks, there is a defense ready to capitalize. This week it is the Panthers.
The Cash Lineup(s) (I would play these in some GPP Games as well)
The GPP Lineup (Much more risk this week)
