Week 4 of the NFL season is upon us and DraftKings is gathering the data to price accurately, but now is still the time to exploit some matchups with low price tags.
After Week 3, we saw more headlines for pregame actions than on the field play and it is finally behind us. We are looking towards Week 4 to recoup the beating that Week 3’s massive upsets laid on us.
Two names being trumpeted from the rafters as must starts, disappointed. Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton looked disastrous against the worst secondary in the NFL. Meanwhile, Miami Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi and the entire team laid an egg against the hapless New York Jets. Those were just two players who disappointed in Week 3 and made fantasy predictions go out the window.
Week 4 again brings about some juicy matchups for players across the board Let’s hope we don’t see the same level of disappointment
Let’s dive into the DraftKings pricing and discuss not only potential value plays at each position, but where the big money should be spent. I will post my lineup that will utilize close to, if not all, of the $50,000 allotted from most DraftKings lineups.
We will also be excluding the Thursday night game from this article. For starters, the abundance of DraftKings contests are on Sunday/Monday games. Second, the Thursday game is usually a toss-up or two bad teams with little fantasy impact. We will include the London games that start at 9:30 AM EST, even though the featured DraftKings contests do not. Let’s stick to Sunday and Monday when we look at players that should be into lineups.
