DFS Cash Game Breakdown 2019 Week 4
Daniel Jones, New York Giants
In place of Eli Manning, Daniel Jones cemented himself as the rightful starter for the Giants. He passed the ball 36 times and averaged 9.3 yards per attempt. He threw two scores. Most importantly, for cash game lineups, Jones put up a 4-28-2. If Jones is going to continue to run the ball a handful of times per game his weekly floor jumps by a couple of points. This week he faces Washington. The Redskins have given up three passing touchdowns and 271 yards per game to quarterbacks they have faced.
Jones has a similar playstyle to Josh Allen but comes at a discount on all sits. Take those savings before Jones is priced up in the coming weeks. In his two years as a backup in New York, 23.2% of his touches have bee receptions.
Gallman won't replace the production that Barkley left behind but at such a low price no matter where you play, he doesn't have to in order to easily make value.
Wayne Gallman, New York Giants
With Saquon Barkley sidelines due to an ankle injury, Wayne Gallman is the free square of the week. Gallman is underpriced on Fanduel and DraftKings as news of Barkley's injury was surfacing as pricing was being set.
Barkley had 36 touches in the two full weeks he played plus another twelve the half of football he played n Week 3. Gallman isn't as good as Barkley at catching passes-few players are-but that has been his specialty as well.
Christian McCaffrey, Carolina Panthers
Playing Gallman and Jones this week is going to leave you with a lot of salary cap to spend but few players worth paying up for. Zeke and Kamara play each other on Sunday night, taking two of the big-three backs off the main slate. That means paying up for McCaffrey is a near-certainty. Only has more touches than McCaffrey's 74 so there's no better way to spend your salary than on the highest floor of the week.
Terry McLaurin, Washington Redskins
Terry McLaurin is Week 4's recipient of the "Monday Night Misprice Award", given to someone who plays well on Monday night and is not priced correctly because th following week's salary was already posted.
McLaurin has caught five passes in each of his first three games and found the end zone in each game as well. He's the first rookie to complete that feat. McLaurin's 368 air yards are seventh in the NFL.
Despite this, McLaurin is outside the top-25 players in terms of price on Fanduel and DraftKings. Lock in the cheapest volume of the week with McLaurin.
Keenan Allen, Los Angeles Chargers
Keenan Allen is going to be the highest-owned receiver on the main slate and he's still not worth fading. Allen has been targeted 42 times, The next-closest player, Michael Thomas, has been targeted 32 times.
The sure-handed receiver also owns 46% of LA's air yards and 36% of the team's targets. His opponent, Miami has given up the most passing touchdowns to pass-catchers, 10.
Allen gets the easiest opponent and earns more of his team's passing work than any other receiver in the league. Just play him, even in tournaments, and move on.
Will Dissly, Seattle Seahawks
Will Dissly has been targeted 14 times and Wilson has thrown 132 air yards his way. Both marks are third in Seattle behind D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.
This week he faces Arizona, who, in addition to letting passers walk all over them, are particularly susceptible to the tight end position. They have allowed 348 yards and five scores to the tight ends they have faced. Those marks are 68 yards and two scores above the second-worst team in tight end defense.
Seattle also moved on from their backup tight end, Nick Vannett, this week. Vannett's five targets and 46 air yards should be almost entirely absorbed by Dissly.
Dissly is a safe play with his quarterback in tournaments or alone, purely for the value, in cash games.
The Broncos defense has had an underwhelming start to their season, registering no sacks, fumble recoveries, or interceptions. Despite not making these splash plays, Denver is top-10 in opponent yards per game and 17th in opponent points per game.
The splash plays they have been lacking are largely influenced by variance and should come sooner rather than later. When that happens they're likely going to crush their opponent.
This week, they are home-favorites against Jacksonville. They are a great buy-low defense in DFS if you need savings for other positions.
