Back at it again to kick off October, here are some of our best NFL DFS Week 4 Picks.
Below is a lineup that I think works well in both cash games and tournaments. I’ll list out the full players that FanDuel generally requires, with a small blurb about why I think each player deserves consideration to crack your lineups.
NFL DFS Picks Week 4
QB: Justin Herbert, $7600
Throughout this NFL season, Herbert has been a favorite of mine due to his skill, his supporting cast, and the Chargers’ willingness to let him sling the rock. Things should be no different in Week 4, as we could be in store for a Los Angeles—Las Vegas shootout at SoFi Stadium. With an average of 42 attempts and 2 touchdowns per game, I’m not sure why FanDuel hasn’t priced him up further.
RB: Austin Ekeler, $7900
This week, our lineup is going to feature a Herbert—Chargers stack. Although he’s an RB, Ekeler fits the bill as a receiver stack, because he essentially is one. Over the past two weeks, Ekeler has caught all 15 of his targets for 113 yards. Against the Raiders, he shouldn’t face much resistance in building on that total.
RB: Darrell Henderson Jr., $6000
This isn’t part of the stack, but it’s a pretty straightforward play. Before leaving Week 2 with an injury, Henderson was getting RB1 usage. Now priced as a RB3, this is a pure value pick for your RB2 slot.
WR: Keenan Allen, $7100
Continuing the Chargers stack, Allen is the perfect play at $7100. While teammate Mike Williams has had quite the start to his season, he still narrowly trails Allen in targets and is priced all the way up at $7800. Williams should continue to produce, but with such a price differential between he and Allen, we’re paying down for the better LA receiver.
WR: Odell Beckham Jr., $6600
Despite popping out his shoulder in his first game in a calendar year, Odell Beckham looked the part and was treated as the team’s WR1. With 149 intended air yards directed his way, things are looking up in a potential sneaky shootout against the Vikings.
WR: Corey Davis, $5700
In need for a bargain bin player, we turn to Davis. His start to 2021 has been so-so as Zack Wilson and the Jets have been walloped through 3 weeks; however, Davis and the Jets offense find themselves in a potential get-right spot against the exploitable Titans defense. Through 3 weeks, Davis has earned a solid 86 air yards per game. Not bad for the cost of a WR5.
TE: Darren Waller, $7500
In order to somewhat balance out our action in the Chargers-Raiders game, we slot in Waller as our tight end. Since we’re expecting a shootout and there’s a strong fantasy point correlation between a QB and the opposing team’s receivers, Waller is good-looking a leverage play.
Flex: DJ Moore, $7300
Taking advantage of another game that could see touchdowns galore, Moore fits in perfectly as our flex. Even though Sam Darnold played – and had a great chemistry – with Robby Anderson in Carolina, he’s relied on DJ Moore as his alpha receiver thus far. Regardless, however, both Moore and Anderson should have plenty of opportunities against an imperfect Cowboys defense.
DEF: Green Bay Packers, $4200
With our remaining funds, the Packers are the best play at defense. Favored by a touchdown at home against the struggling Steelers offense, they should be in store for a few sacks and perhaps a turnover or two.
