Tyrod Taylor

Buffalo Bills

Ready to Roll


In Tampa's two road games this season, both QBs (Case Keenum & Carson Palmer) had top-4 fantasy weeks. Tyrod Taylor gets TB in BUF Sunday coming off his bye week. His schedule looks pretty sweet for the rest of the season as well. He'll have to figure out who he's going to throw to, but he'll get rushing yards to secure his floor.

Amari Cooper

Oakland Raiders

Get Right Spot?


Kansas City has the most air yards against this year, and the 6th most receiving yards against. Both KC CB’s have given up 3 TDs. The most vulnerable depth to attack KC is 15 yards. Over their careers, Cooper has been better at 15 yard depths and up than Crabtree.
Eventually NFL players break out of their slumps, because they are good, even Cooper. Tonight could be the night, there’s nothing like the spotlight to get your superstar going.

Adrian Peterson

New Orleans Saints

Well, that was fast...


After just one game, Adrian Peterson has 36.51% of the Arizona Cardinals running back rush yards this season.

Fantasy Goo: He's an RB2 for now, but if he can stay healthy... watch out.

Buffalo Bills

The Bills are under center more in 2017


Last season the Buffalo Bills ran shotgun on 81% of their plays, 74% of their runs came from the shotgun. In 2017 however, Buffalo is averaging just 44% plays from shotgun. Just 25% of their runs have come from shotgun. They are averaging 5.18 yards per rush in shotgun and 2.76 from under center.

Fantasy Goo: McCoy is currently 25th in fantasy points for RBs coming off his bye week with only one 100-yard game and zero touchdowns. Might be time to change it up a little bit HC Sean McDermott and OC Rick Dennison.

Minnesota Vikings

FanDuel Triple Play


Davonte Adams vsNO - $6,900 – Adams was peppered with 10 targets and caught a TD from Brett Hundley in week 6. The peppering will continue to be hot against the Saints defense which is giving up the 6th most points to WRs.

Jimmy Graham @NYG - $5,800 - The Giants are giving up the most points to TE’s this season. Sitting at the top of list in allowing 14.2 FF to the position that has the best basketball players. Graham is a slam dunk this week.

Minnesota Vikings vsBAL - $4,700 – The Vikings are at home hosting the Baltimore Ravens. Let me break this one down a bit further. The Baltimore Ravens are playing at the Minnesota Vikings this week and the Vikings DST only cost $4,700. PLAY THE VIKINGS DST!

Derrick Henry

Tennessee Titans

Titans in the Backfield


Mike Mularkey said the run game split on MNF (near 50-50 for DeMarco Murray-Derrick Henry) was a good model. He also added that Henry is the go-to RB in the 4th quarter.

Fantasy Goo: I believe this is the target, but we will see this vary from week-to-week. If Murray is healthy or fired-up, like he may be after his coaches’ comments, he will be the guy to start. As the season whines down so will Murray, buy Henry for your playoff run, he’s more than just a handcuff.

Marlon Mack

Indianapolis Colts

Turbin Done for Season


Colts HC Chuck Pagano expects RB Robert Turbin to miss rest of season with arm injury he suffered Monday night. Turbin has averaged 6+ touches per game over the past four weeks.

Fantasy Goo: This might seem insignificant, but I expect Marlon Mack will pick-up all of those touches. An extra 6 touches from Mack could mean a major boost in production. Grab him if you can, he’ll be explosive when Luck comes back.

Ezekiel Elliott

Dallas Cowboys

Two More Weeks of Zeke


Ezekiel Elliott has been granted another temporary restraining order by the Southern District of New York, and will be allowed to play Week 7. The restraining order, is for 14 days. So it appears Elliott will also be good for Week 8.

Fantasy Goo: Hold off on all the Morris/McFadden love for a couple more weeks. If you have them you’re probably holding if you’re a contender, but I’d sell high to the Zeke owner if you can. This is gearing up for Zeke to be out during the fantasy playoffs.

Kenny Golladay

Detroit Lions

Golladay. Celebrate


If we picked up Golladay
Take some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice
Everybody spread the word
We’re gonna have a celebration

Every season there is that player that propels a team to the fantasy promise land. Kenny Golladay possesses that high upside potential down the stretch that can be invaluable. Golladay last played in week 3 before suffering a hamstring injury, and Matthew Stafford has missed his 213lb 6’4 receiver. After throwing for 7TDs in the first 3 weeks; Stafford has only thrown for 2TDs before exploding in week 6 against the Saints with 3 tosses. This was a result of the game being out of hand and being forced to throw 52 times. Golden Tate was injured in this game and word is he will be out a few weeks. The Lions are on a bye in week 7, which gives Tate a free week to rest, but more importantly gives Golladay a free week to get ready to explode on the scene once again at home in week 8 against the Steelers. Tate and Marvin Jones Jr are what they are at this point. Golladay gives Stafford the kind of big threat target that he has lacked since the Decepticon leader himself MEGATRON retired. You can’t teach height and talent, and that is a gunslingers favorite type of weapon to use.

George Kittle

San Francisco 49ers

Waiver Wire Target


Kittle had a very average game this week catching four passes for 46 yards, but there could be some good news that came out of this game for him. C.J. Beathard has been named the starter for the rest of the season, and that was Kittle’s college quarterback, so you know there is immediate chemistry there that could pay nice dividends in the coming weeks

Alex Collins

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


Collins got the majority of the carries for the Ravens this week with 15 of them for 74 yards. He looks like he will be in a time share with Javorious Allen, but this was the first time we saw him take the majority of the carries, making him more interesting going forward.

Austin Hooper

Atlanta Falcons

Waiver Wire Target


Without Sanu the Falcons leaned a lot more on Hooper, who finished with seven receptions for 48 yards. He is becoming a bigger part of the Falcons offense, and he has big play potential that makes him a worthy add.

Ted Ginn Jr

New Orleans Saints

Waiver Wire Target


Ginn is the deep threat receiver for Drew Brees and they connected on a 20-yard score this week. Ginn finished with four receptions for 66 yards including that score. The Saints offense is lacking the big play and Ginn can provide the pop in the passing game.

Samaje Perine

Washington Redskins

Waiver Wire Target


Perine finally found the endzone this week, but his final stat line was not that pretty with nine carries for just 23 yards and three receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown. Samaje has lacked the big play, which has limited him in fantasy.

D'Onta Foreman

Houston Texans

Waiver Wire Target


Foreman got his customary 12 carries and this week gained 59 yards, but was once again held without a touchdown. He is getting a consistent workload, but he is not busting the big play to make him a worthy fantasy start.

Mike Wallace

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


After a stellar week Wallace came back down to earth, catching three passes for 30 yards. Wallace is a boom or bust.

Kendall Wright

Chicago Bears

Waiver Wire Target


Wright was basically invisible this game with two catches for 36 yards, and did not make a catch until the third quarter. There is too much inconsistency in the Bears passing offense.

DFS Advice for FanDuel and DraftKings for the 2017 in Week 4

The Daily Dos & Don'ts - Week 4 DFS Advice (2017)

Posted by d-Rx on 10/01/17

Stagg Party's Week 4 DFS

 

 

Pillar: WR, Julio Jones – FanDuel - $8,400 / DraftKings - $8,800

Julio Jones has gotten off to a slow start to the season based on everyone’s expectations and hasn’t had a full week of practice this week, but you know what YOLO. Those factors combined with seeing red in the matchup column should keep Julio’s ownership at a manageable rate. The Bills rank sixth against opposing wide receivers so far this season and have yet to allow a passing touchdown on 111 passing attempts. But for funsies, here is a list of the corners the Bills are currently trotting out there: Tre'Davious White, Shareece Wright, E.J. Gaines, and Leonard Johnson. Do any of those guys sound familiar? If they do you spend too much time on this game which is commendable, but for fucks sake let me know which of these guys you think can guard Julio Jones. Julio’s targets have increased every week, and all that shit talking Sark did about wanting to get him involved in the redzone has to happen sometime, this could be a week where Julio shines.

 

Sleepers: WR, Chris Hogan – FanDuel - $6,900 / DraftKings - $6,000

I don’t know if you know this or not but Chris Hogan used to play lacrosse, that has nothing to do with anything but I figured you needed to know. Hogan the football player has gotten off to a hot start this season nearly matching Brandin Cooks in targets, matching him in receptions, and has three touchdowns to Cooks’ two. Expanding the sample a little bit, including the playoffs last year, Hogan has five touchdowns over his last five games. Hogan has week winning upside catching the rock (what do they even call the ball in lacrosse?) from Brady as he has multiple touchdown games in his range of outcomes. The Panthers allowed three touchdowns to Saints wide receivers last week, and Brady has been on such a hot streak over the last two weeks, I am tossing in Hogan everywhere possible.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: TE, Evan Engram – FanDuel - $5,200 / DraftKings - $3,000

Much has been made about the success of rookie tight ends in fantasy football, so I guess it is good for all of us that Evan Engram is a wide receiver masquerading as a tight end and still has that designation. Right now, Engram is tied for sixth among tight ends in targets and receptions, seventh in yards, and has a touchdown catch which only 26 tight ends have one so far this season. In PPR scoring like DraftKings, Engram does not have a game with fewer than 8.4 points and has gotten at least 5 targets in every game. In DK pricing, Engram is basically free. His matchup may seem tough at first glance as the Bucks have allowed just 46 receiving yards to opposing tight ends this season, but check the Friday injury report and get back to me. Just because I don’t want you to leave the site I’ll just tell you, the Bucs will be missing the following LBs Kwon Alexander, Lavonte David; SS T.J. Ward. That is a lot of speed and experience in the linebacking and tight end coverage core.

 

I’d Avoid: QB, Derek Carr – FanDuel - $7,900 – Draftkings - $5,800

This is especially true on FanDuel where Derek Carr is tied for the third highest quarterback on the slate. The Denver Broncos haven’t been as dominant against the quarterbacks as they were during the 2016 season, allowing 17.1 fantasy points a game to opposing passers, compared to 13.8 fantasy points in 2016, but they have owned Derek Carr. Derek’s fantasy point totals in his last three matchups against Denver: 7.7, 13.0, and 9.9. Carr’s top weapons Amari Cooper/ Michael Crabtree or Michael Crabtree/Amari Cooper if you prefer that route have also really struggled against Denver. With limited upside in this matchup I am not where near close to paying a top five price.

 


 

ØC Week 4 DFS


Pillar: WR, AJ Green – FanDuel $8,000 – DraftKings $8,600

It’s not often that Draft Kings prices a wideout higher than FanDuel, but they may be onto something this week. Green averages seven receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown in his last two meetings with the Browns. AJ boasts six receiving touchdowns and averages at least eight targets per game in his career against Cleveland. New offensive coordinator Bill Lazor already made a point to get Green the touches he needs in Week 3 and I don’t expect anything short of a 20 FF point performance in Week 4.

 

Sleeper: QB, Trevor Siemian – FanDuel $7,500 – DraftKings $5,200

Trevor Siemian posted 22.6 FF points in both of Denver’s home games this season, then put up a dismal 7.6 FF points on the road. Trevor excels at Mile High and Oakland has been very generous to opposing quarterbacks, allowing five touchdowns with no interceptions. He is currently priced at QB #27 (DK), so you won’t get a better deal than that for a passer that can post 20+ FF points! The Bronco rush attack is diverse and healthy to boot, so you might as well save some money with a lot of upside!

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: WR, Marvin Jones Jr. – FanDuel $5,700 / DraftKings $4,000

Jones Jr. has collected a receiving touchdown in each of his last two games but faces a tough Minnesota team on the road. Expect a lot of passing in this matchup as the Vikings are the number one defense against fantasy running backs. However, stud defensive back Xavier Rhodes should be covering Golden Tate which means more opportunity for Marvin to reach the production levels he experienced from early last season. 

 

I'd Avoid: RB, Devonta Freeman – FanDuel $8,500 / DraftKings $7,300

Freeman will face a tough Bills defense in Atlanta this weekend. While averaging 18 FF points per game in half PPR formats, no running back has accrued more than 12 FF points against Buffalo in the first three weeks of the season. Jamaal Charles was the only RB to score thus far and no back has crossed the goal line for a receiving touchdown. Tevin Coleman is the bigger back and may be used more often against the brutish DLine of the Bills. Use your budget money elsewhere this week for sure victory!

 

Stack:

RB, Jay Ajayi – FanDuel $7,800 – DraftKings $7,400

WR, DeVante Parker – FanDuel $6,500 – DraftKings $6,700

 

 

 

 

d-Rx's Week 4 DFS

 

Pillar: WR, Odell Beckham Jr. - FanDuel $9,100 / DraftKings $8,900

The Tampa Bay Bucs are letting up a ton of points to WRs (44.6 on FanDuel & 52.8 on DraftKings), more than any other team by a large margin. Odell seems to be back, when I see the best against the worst - I like to take that matchup.

 

Sleeper: RB, Joe Mixon - FanDuel $5,600 / DraftKings $5,700

New offensive coordinator showed us that he likes Mixon the most last week in his first game calling the plays for the Bengals. Against the Browns, a team the Bengals know they have to beat and make a statement against, I see Mixon breaking out and having his best game in his short NFL career today. Mixon is in all my DFS lineups this week.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: TE, Tyler Kroft - FanDuel $4,900  / DraftKings $2,600

Eifert is out again, and the Cleveland Browns are bottom 5 against the tight end position. If you have a stacked team in other spots and need to grab a throw in for a low salary, I like this one as a close my eyes and throw that shit against the wall and hope it hits the bullseye.


I'd Avoid: WR, Amari Cooper - FanDuel $7,500 / DraftKings $6,000

Amari has been terrible this season. Crabtree has been ruled out so the Broncos defense now can focus purely on Amari Cooper. This spells trouble for one of the most over-rated WRs in the NFL thus far in 2017.
