Fantasy Football Week 4 DFS Plays
Hello everyone and welcome to my DFS likes of the week. I was absent from week 3 DFS, but I’m here ready and excited for week 4. With that said, let’s get this started.
Deshaun Watson– DraftKings– $ 5,100. FanDuel– $7,300
In his first two NFL starts, Watson put up 17.7 and 25.14 points respectively. He will be facing a Titans defense that has been disappointing thus far. The Titans have given up 21 points per game to QB’s and are allowing over 4 yards per carry to the position. Watson has a total of 124 rushing yards which is good for 30th in the league. He has more rushing yards than my New York football Giants. Watson should be a great DFS play this week and he comes at a ridiculously low price. A good matchup against the 3rd friendliest defense to QB’s at home with a new healthy weapon in Fuller could be a game that separates the rookie from the pack.
Trevor Siemian– DraftKings– $5,200. FanDuel– $7,500
Trevor Siemian will be on a lot of peoples radars for DFS this weekend and rightfully so. There is so much upside in this division rivalry matchup against the Raiders. It’s hard NOT to consider what Siemian can do at home. Through the first three weeks, Siemian scored 23.6 in both weeks 1 & 2 but had the bad performance on the road in Buffalo in week 3. Good thing for Siemian is that the Broncos come back home this weekend where they shown as a team how dominant they can be. Raiders are giving up the 4th most points to QB’s this season and I do think they will score some points despite Denver’s locked down defense, allowing Trevor Siemian to pass the ball more frequently. He’s a great play and streamer at QB this week.
Eli Manning: Buccaneers defense is banged up and The Giants offense seemed to finally click last week.
Ezekiel Elliot– DraftKings– $8,200. FanDuel– $8,500.
The Rams are giving up 27 points per game to running backs in standard scoring, 31 points in PPR scoring. Playing at home with one of the best offensive lines in football, Zeke will finish as this weeks NUMBER ONE FANTASY SCORER. You heard it here first!(maybe not first, but you heard it here.)The Rams have surprised the league this year with their new high-powered offense, but as a result, their defense hasn’t been great. Ranking 29th against the run and giving up the 3rd most fantasy points to running backs, Zeke should have a 100+ yard rushing game and no less than two totaled touchdowns. INVEST IN ZEKE!
Andre Ellington: The Cardinals aren’t good enough offensively to say they’ll easily beat the 49ers and being that the 49ers rank 6th in most points allowed to running backs in PPR scoring bodes very well for Ellington; who saw an up-tick in touches last week. He’s extremely cheap and can score in the mid to high teens this week.
Joe Mixon: He’s my gut feeling performer this week. Backfield is officially his after week 3.
Odell Beckham Jr.– DraftKings– $8,900. FanDuel– $9,100.
OBJ started off the year slow by sitting out week 1 and only having 4 receptions for 36 yards in week 2. But in week 3, not only did the Giants finally pick things up offensively, so did OBJ. When this team is moving the ball he is usual the reason why. Going up against the same defense that allowed Diggs to have a monster game with Keenum at QB, I expect a similar performance for OBJ this week. He’ll out play the other #13 whom is on the opposite side on the field.
Kelvin Benjamin: He is fully healthy and was taken off the Panthers injury report for the week. Its about time Benjamin gets going and after what could’ve been a big week against the Saints in week 3, he’s being blessed with another great matchup against the Patriots who give up the 6th most points to WRs this year. I wouldn’t, however, start Cam Newton.
Jared Cook- DraftKings– $3,400. FanDuel– $5,500.
Tight ends just don’t bode well for me this week. The tight ends whom have been decent/good (very few) have tough matchup’s and the ones with good matchup’s are unproven. Jared Cook, however, has good skills and is a good receiving tight end that never took that next step. He has a good matchup against a Broncos defense that gave up a touchdown to the tight end position on back to back weeks. You can roll the dice on him.
Ryan Succop- FanDuel– $4,600
Houston has a good defense but will consistently find it hard to keep Tennessee out the redzone. I predict a few long kicks from Succop this week.
Bengals- DraftKings– $3,500. FanDuel– $4,600
They’re playing the Browns this week in a division rivalry game. Bengals are 0-3 and desperately need a win. The Browns offense also makes things easier here as well.
