My DFS expert, Mike, is here with some quick thoughts on daily fantasy plays for Week 4.
As the omnipresent advertisements for the DFS sites always tell us, every week is a new week. That’s good news for yours truly, as my recommendations (and my lineups) stunk last week. While I still think those picks made sense, they certainly didn’t pan out. We need to have short memories as DFS players though, so we’re already moving on to Week 4.
I’ll be out of the country for the next week, so I’ll have a shortened column this week, and nothing next week (FFLibrarian edit: working on getting someone to post in Mike's place with DFS plays and fades for next week; email me if you think you can fill in!). There are some injury situations that still need to be determined, but as far as what we know at this time, here are some plays I like this week:
QB (cash): Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, Aaron Rodgers, Tyrod Taylor
QB (tournament special): Andrew Luck
RB (cash): Karlos Williams, Frank Gore, Eddie Lacy, Devonte Freeman
RB (tournament special): Melvin Gordon
WR (Cash): Julio Jones, DeAndre Hopkins, James Jones, Larry Fitzgerald, Randall Cobb, Donte Moncrief, Amari Cooper
WR (Tournament special): TY Hilton
TE (cash): Greg Olsen, Jason Witten, Martellus Bennett, Charles Clay
TE (tournament special): Jimmy Graham
