01 Oct Daily Fantasy Football Week 4 (Main Slate): Picks, Advice and Value Plays for FanDuel and DraftKings
DraftKings and Fandeul Daily Fantasy Football Lineup Picks (Week 4, Main Slate)
Fanduel Daily Fantasy Football Lineup Picks and NFL DFS Advice
Tom Brady – Brady and the Pats are in mid-season form as the Patriots offense generated over 400 yards of offense and 5 passing TDs against a respectable Texans defense. Lock and load Brady as usual.
Matt Ryan – Ryan and the Falcons have a juicy matchup against a beatable Bills secondary. The home/road splits are a real thing for the Falcons offense as they are much more efficient at home.
Carson Palmer – 3 words: San Francisco 49ers
Case Keenum – The Detroit Lions are 24th in the league against the pass this year. With Bradford still dealing with a knee issue, Keenum is an easy start against the Lions at home. Expect a big day for Keenum and Adam Thielen.
Le’Veon Bell – Bell is off to a slow start after missing most of training camp with a contract dispute. He’s starting to flash signs that he’s getting into football shape and is primed for a heavy workload against a Ravens defense that was just gutted by the Jaguars offense.
Devonta Freeman – Lock and load Freeman in all PPR formats. He’s primed for a monster day at home against the Bills.
Ezekiel Elliot – Elliot bounced back from this dud in Denver with a solid showing in Arizona. He still has the leagues suspension efforts being held over his head, but he’s locked in for Sunday’s game against the Rams. Fire him up as usual.
Todd Gurley – The Rams offense is running through Todd Gurley as the has tuned up opposing defenses for 6 total TDs through 3 weeks. Fire him up again Sunday against a beatable Cowboys front 7.
Chris Carson – Carson has carved out a role in the Seahawks offense thanks to numerous injuries at the position. Expect at least 20 touches for Carson today.
Joe Mixon – With the firing of Offensive Coordinator Ken Zampese, incumbent OC Bill Lazor has shifted their approach from a RBBC to a more workhorse role that features rookie Joe Mixon. Mixon is clearly the lead dog. Expect a big day against a soft Cleveland D.
Wendell Smallwood – We’re taking a wait-and-see approach here with Smallwood, but his workload is expected to skyrocket with Sproles done for the season.
Julio Jones – Julio is dealing with a groin issue but is fully expected to suit up against the Bills. Lock him in for WR1 usage and production.
Odell Beckham Jr – OBJ broke out last week against the Eagles for two touchdowns. He’s over his ankle injury and primed for a massive day against the Buccs.
Brandin Cooks – Cooks is average over 25 yards per catch. You read that right, 25 YARDS PER CATCH. He and Brady are developing a nice rapport and Cooks should have a monster 2017.
Dez Bryant – Dez, when healthy, is a beast…and he’s healthy. His usage rate is low, but he’s scored in consecutive games and has a beatable matchup against the Rams.
Keenan Allen – Lock and load Allen in all PPR formats. He’s a target hog with 30 looks in the first 3 weeks. The Eagles have been abused in the passing game. Allen should have a monster game.
Adam Thielen – For the life of me, I can’t understand why Thielen’s price isn’t rising. He’s still below $6,400 on both sites and has seen 24 targets his way through three weeks. He’s not been able to find the end zone, but that changes Sunday against the Lions.
Marvin Jones Jr. – Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes will shadow Golden Tate on Sunday, freeing up Jones to own the middle of the field. Fire him up in PPR formats and is a solid cash and GPP play.
Rob Gronkowski – Gronk is the only elite option as most of the usual suspects are dealing with injuries. If you’re not paying up for Gronk, feel free to drop all the way to Griffin or McDonald at near-minimum prices.
Jared Cook – Cook and QB Derek Carr have developed a nice rapport through the first 3 weeks of the season. With WR Michael Crabtree likely out, Cook could be a busy man Sunday.
Vance McDonald – McDonald is strictly a GPP play only, but the Ravens have been a sieve to opposing TE’s, including giving up 3 TDs to Jaguars TE Mercedes Lewis. Yup, McDonald could feast today.
Ryan Griffin – CJ Fiedorowicz remains sidelined with a concussion. Fire up Griffin in cash and GPP formats Sunday against the Titans.
