The DFS slate for Week 4 is providing so much value that there are a number of ways to go when building your FanDuel cash game lineups. For this daily fantasy entry, the bulk of the money will be spent on the wide receiver position. As always, the method may be different from week to week but the goal is to finish on the right side of the cash line.
QB – Kirk Cousins, Washington Redskins, $7,600 (Opponent: Cleveland Browns)
Entering Week 4 of NFL action, the Redskins’ signal caller has thrown the fifth-most passes in the league. While all of those passes has resulted in only three touchdowns, that should change in a big way this week. The Browns have allowed seven passing touchdowns and the seventh-most fantasy points this season.
RB – Melvin Gordon, San Diego Chargers, $7,600 (Opponent: New Orleans Saints)
In his first game without Danny Woodhead last week, Gordon scored 15.8 FanDuel points. And now this week he faces a New Orleans’ defense that has struggled against running backs in 2016. The Saints have allowed the most fantasy points to running backs this season.
RB – Jordan Howard, Chicago Bears, $5,600 (Opponent: Detroit Lions)
Teammate Jeremy Langford is out this week with an ankle injury, so the rookie running back steps into the starting lineup in Week 4. On 13 touches last week, Howard scored 11.2 FanDuel points. He should score plenty more on Sunday. The Lions are allowing 5.3 yards per rush this season.
WR – Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers, $9,400 (Opponent: Kansas City Chiefs)
The Steelers’ wide receiver leads the NFL in targets with 40 passes thrown his way through three weeks. He also has topped the 100 yards mark in two of three games this season. On weekly basis, he always gets major consideration.
WR – Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals, $7,500 (Opponent: Los Angeles Rams)
Even coming off a bad game last week, the Cardinals’ pass catcher continued to see double-digit targets in Week 3. With Fitzgerald facing a 5-foot-8 Lamarcus Joyner this week, no doubt that Fitzgerald gets another 10-plus passes thrown his way on Sunday.
WR – Marvin Jones, Detroit Lions, $7,600 (Opponent: Chicago Bears)
The Lions’ top pass catcher has scored 41.3 FanDuel points over his last two games and now faces a depleted Bears’ secondary.
TE – Zach Miller, Chicago Bears, $5,000 (Opponent: Detroit Lions)
After catching two touchdowns last week, the Bears’ Zach Miller could be in for another big fantasy day on Sunday. The Lions have allowed five touchdowns to tight ends already this season as well as the most fantasy points to the position.
K – Dustin Hopkins, Washington Redskins, $4,500 (Opponent: Cleveland Browns)
Cleveland has allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to kickers this season. Washington should be in control of this game so Hopkins should get plenty of run in the second half.
D – Arizona Cardinals, $5,300 (Opponent: Los Angeles Rams)
The Rams’ have allowed the 10th-most fantasy points to defenses on the season.
