DFS Digging In The Crates Daily 2019 week 4 DraftKings
Week 4: Digging In The Crates
DraftKings (Main Slate)
Daniel Jones vs. Redskins ($5,300)
Daniel Jones made a lasting impression week 3 against the Buccaneers on the road. He threw for over three hundred yards with two passing touchdowns and added two more with his legs. He gets a juicy home matchup against a struggling Redskins team week 4. The Skins just allowed Mitch Trubisky to shred them for three touchdowns on Monday night. He’s a cash game lock and firmly in play for tournaments.
Kyle Allen @ Texans ($5,200)
Panthers fans got to see young Kyle Allen gash the Arizona Cardinals on the road week 3, making it easier on the hearts of Cam Newton truthers. The real truth is, Allen threw four touchdowns and a nearly perfect QB rating. He’ll face a Texans team that has allowed the sixth most fantasy points to quarterbacks thus far in 2019. He has weapons galore, and a head full of confidence. Allen is a great tournament pivot off of Daniel Jones and a viable cash game option as well.
Bonus: Mitch Trubisky vs. Vikings
Wayne Gallman vs. Redskins ($4,600)
Saquon Barkley is looking at a lengthy absence due to injury and Wayne Gallman is next up. At 210 pounds he’s big enough to withstand volume but primarily known for pass catching duties. The Redskins are allowing the eighth most rushing yards to running backs. Based on volume, Gallman could easily pay off his Value price tag. A Daniel Jones-Wayne Gallman-Sterling Shepard or Evan Engram stack is in order. Disclaimer: he is NOT Saquon Barkley but he knows the offense. Gallman is a cash game lock week 4.
James White @ Bills ($4,900)
Shout out to James White who missed week three for the birth of his new child. The Patriots will see the 3-0 Bills on the road and White will be a big part of the game plan. The health of Julian Edelman will play a part in the usage of White week 4. They have struggled to find a sound running game and Rex Burkhead (also in play) has been the most complete back. The Bills have shut opposing running backs down so far in 2019 but White is their to catch passes, not grind between the tackles. He’s a cheap GPP play that will remain one of Tom Brady’s most trusted offensive assets.
Bonus: Chris Thompson @ Giants
Terry McLaurin @ Giants ($4,500)
Terry McLaurin has a dreamy match up week 4 against a Giants secondary that has been horrendous. The volume has been there (7 or more targets weeks 1-3) and he has scored in all three games to start the season. The Giants and Redskins have what looks to be a somewhat sloppy, high scoring game that will translate to fantasy points. After all, that’s only what we care about. McLaurin is a burner that runs polished routes like a veteran already. Mike Evans toasted Giants corner back Janoris Jenkins a week ago and if they don’t use safety help, McLaurin will feast. He’s safe enough to use in cash games and his upside makes him firmly in play for tournaments.
Curtis Samuel @ Texans ($4,600)
I’ve always found it interesting that when different quarterbacks become an immediate replacement latch on to a pass catching target that may not have been the previous quarterbacks favorite. This was the case week three with Kyle Allen and Curtis Samuel. Samuel caught 5-of-7 targets for 53 yards and a touchdown. The previous week Samuel was targeted 13 times. The masses will flock to D.J. Moore abd the red hot Greg Olsen, but if want a cheap-under owned, piece of the Cam Newton-less Panthers offense look towards Samuel. He appears to be QB safe. Use him as a pivot in tournaments and his floor seems high enough to be used in cash games.
Will Dissly @ Cardinals ($3,600)
Two things are certain in life. Taxes and the Arizona Cardinals inability to stop tight ends. The Seahawks have cleared way for Will Dissly to become the lead red zone target for Russell Wilson that has lacked continuity in the passing game outside of Tyler Lockett. Dissly has five touchdowns in five full games. He’ll be chalky. But the good kind of chalk. A must start in cash games and a SOLID tournament play. Fade at your own risk. He is a silky smooth receiver and we love the rapport that is forming.
Austin Hooper vs. Titans ($4,300)
I ranked Austin Hooper TE 4 in the FootballDiehards.com Draftbook magazine and i’m planting my flag. (He’s currently TE 6). He’s coming off a six reception, two touchdown performance against the Colts. He’ll face a Titans defense that has been real stingy against wide receivers so far in 2019 and that could free up Hooper on this pass happy Falcons offense. The Titans have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends already this season. He’s getting at least six targets in each game thus far. Hooper is the PERFECT tournament play at home.
Bonus: Greg Olsen
Broncos vs. Jaguars ($2,900)
Bradley Chubb and Von Miller have ZERO sacks so far in 2019. Amazing when we think about it. That is going to change week four at home against Gardner Minshew and the Jaguars. They are not blitzing. If the Broncos want to win it starts with a couple big plays on defense. Use the Broncos in tournaments. No one will touch them.
Disclaimer: I will be paying up at defense this week. Chargers, Patriots and Rams all come to mind.
