2020 NFL DFS Week 4 FanDuel Picks

Welcome to the 2020 NFL DFS Week 4 FanDuel Picks!

In my articles, it is mostly based on cash game and single entry plays as that is what I typically play.

I will throw a few low owned GPP plays out there and some stacks that I will be targeting in the few GPP entries that I do like.

I will update this page if there is any breaking news, injuries, etc. so be sure to check back between now and game time.

Alright, let's get to it!

Updates

10/4 10:35 am - Michael Thomas and Jared Cook were ruled out for the Saints. The offense will once again run through Alvin Kamara and makes him one of, if not, the tops options at running back this. He will be highly owned so try to differentiate in large field GPP's.

The Raiders will be without Henry Ruggs and Bryans Edwards. Hunter Renfrow should be the main beneficiary and will be the Raiders' best receiving option today. He is coming off a nine target game and I expect the same kind of value today against a Bills defense that has been exposed by slot receivers so far this season. I like Renfrow in cash and GPP's today. 

10:56 am -  I forgot to add that the Saints will also be without Marshon Lattimore. He's actually been pretty bad this year but I still think this gives a nice bump to Kenny Golladay and Matthew Stafford.

Quarterback

Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals - $7,400

The kid is tough. He took a gruesome hit from Eagles DL, Malik Jackson, and was able to come back into the game after missing only one play. In total, Burrow was sacked eight times and hit 18 times against the Eagles last Sunday.

However, he still managed to throw for 312 yards and two TDs in a 23-23 tie.

This week, he matches up against the Jaguars in a game that I don't expect to see much defense played.

The Jags have given up the 6th most FanDuel points per game (22.76).

With only a three-point spread (CIN -3) and a total that has continued to rise since it opened, this one has a chance to shoot out. And if it does, Joe Burrow and the pass-happy Bengals offense will be a big reason why.

Honorable Mentions: Russell Wilson ($9,000), Dak Prescott ($8,200), Ryan Fitzpatrick ($7,100)

Running Back

Dalvin Cook, Minnesota Vikings- $8,700

There are a few solid options at the top, but I am rolling with Cook as one of my higher-priced options.

He went off last week against the Titans, posting 22-181-1 (8.2 YPC!) and 2-18 through the air. I thought the Titans would handle the Vikings, forcing them to abandon the run, but boy was I wrong.

Cook gets an even softer matchup this week against the Texans who have given up the 4th most FanDuel points per game (29.57). They have also surrendered TDs to opposing running backs in all three games, as well as two 100 yard rushers.

I expect Cook to keep it going this week and would not be surprised if he found paydirt twice this week,

James Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars - $6,600

Man am I mad at myself for not scooping this guy up in all of my seasonal leagues. He's been a nice addition for those that did. Thankfully, we get to play DFS and I can roster him whenever I please and this is one of those weeks.

Through three weeks, he is the 5th-highest FD scorer at running back, averaging 19 FD PPG. Robinson is getting it done on the ground as well as through the air (3rd most rec yards by RB).

He gets an RB-friendly matchup in the Bengals this week who are giving up the 5th most FD PPG (28.33). Robinson has been heavily involved in the offense seeing 53.4% of the snaps and receiving 52% of the touches when on the field.

He provides good value at this price point.

Honorable Mentions: Alvin Kamara ($8,800), Kenyan Drake ($7,000), Devin Singletary ($6,000)

Wide Receiver

Tyler Lockett/DK Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks - $6,900/$7,500

Both Seattle wideouts are in good spots this week going up against the 13th-worst defense against wide receivers in the Dolphins (32.5 FD PPG). This secondary got exposed by Stefon Diggs (8-153-1) and John Brown (4-82-1) in Week 3 and I expect Lockett and Metcalf to be able to take advantage of them.

Chris Carson is also not 100% and is at risk of missing the game. If that is the case, it gives a bump to the passing game.

It does worry me a bit that this one could get out of hand. But if it does, that likely means that they will have hit value by that time. I prefer to take the salary savings in Metcalf.

DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins - $6,500

On the other side of the ball is DeVante Parker. The Seahawks have given up the most passing yards in the league through the first three games. They have also given up the most fantasy points to all wide receivers.

Parker lines up primarily on the outside and will match up against Shaq Griffin and Quinton Dunbar. Griffin has surrendered the most receptions and receiving yards so far, and Dunbar is iffy to play so he will not be at 100% if he does suit up.

The Dolphins will be playing from behind and will have to try to attack this weak secondary if they want any chance of winning this game.

Fire up Parker in this favorable matchup.

Tyler Boyd, Cincinnati Bengals - $6,000

I think last week was the beginning blossoming connection between Joe Burrow and Tyler Boyd. He caught 10 balls for 125 yards on 13 targets against the Eagles.

Burrow continues to grow confidence in him as his targets have increased every week (5-8-13).

If I like Burrow this week, then I have to like at least one of his wide receivers. He gets another plus matchup in the slot vs DJ Hayden who has allowed the most yards after the catch for a slot corner.

As I said earlier, I can see this one shooting out and Boyd will be one of the main reasons why. Boyd is still too cheap and I will be playing him again this week.

Honorable Mentions: DeAndre Hopkins ($8,700), Cooper Kupp ($7,200), Will Fuller ($6,100), Justin Jefferson ($5,400)

Tight End

TJ Hockenson, Detroit Lions - ($5,400)

The 2nd year tight end is off to a nice start in 2020. Hockenson leads the Lions in receptions, receiving yards, and is tied in TDs.

Kenny Golladay was back for the Lions last week but he did not take any targets away from Hockenson (7 targets). He should occupy Marshon Lattimore for most of the game and will open up the field for Hockenson in what is already a plus matchup.

The Saints have given up the most FD PPG (22.5) through three weeks and have allowed a tight end to find the end zone in every game.

I'm interested.

Honorable Mentions: Darren Waller ($6,700), Dalton Schultz ($4,900)

Defense

Baltimore Ravens - $5,000

I normally don't pay up all the way at D but I am considering it this week.

The Ravens face Dwayne Haskins and the Washington Football Team who have given up 8.67 FD PPG to opposing D/ST. Haskins just does not look right out there and needs to drastically improve on his accuracy and decision making. He'll be good for a few sacks and multiples turnovers.

If I don't pay all the way up I am considering paying all the way down to the Vikings.

Honorable Mentions: Rams ($4,800), Bucs ($4,700), Vikings ($3,300)

Core Four - Burrow, Cook, Parker, Boyd

Favorite Game Stacks - SEA/MIA, MIN/HOU, CIN/JAC

GPP QB - Deshaun Watson
GPP RB - Nick Chubb
GPP WR - Michael Thomas
GPP TE - Mike Gesicki
