DFS Digging In The Crates Daily 2020 Week 4 DraftKings
DraftKings (Main Slate: 13 Games)
Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. Seahawks ($5,400)
Ryan Fitzpatrick seems to be ageless. A ruthless gun slinger with no fear on the field. He completed 18 of 20 passes for 160 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in a win over the Jaguars week three. Fitz will get a Seahawks team at home that is heavily favored. He’ll be forced to throw and make magic while faced with a negative game script. Fitzmagic is projecting for over 20 DraftKings points and pairing him with Devante Parker or Mike Gesicki is a sneaky, cheap, tournament stack that will be severely low owned.
Derek Carr vs. Bills ($5,300)
Derek Carr will get a Bills defense that got gashed by Jared Goff week three at home. Despite being exposed by Bill Bellichick, Carr will likely be playing from behind and should hit his Crate bargain. He has a completed 74 percent of his passes and has yet to throw an interception. Derek Carr’s success and any kind of upside will be in conjunction with the health of Darren Waller and Josh Jacobs. If the game script against the Bills is any thing similar to how it was for the Rams, Carr will hit value and pay off his $5,300 tag. Darren Waller is too cheap week four and together they’ll be a ridiculously low owned, affordable stack.
Bonus: Drew Brees @ Lions ($5,800)
Darrell Henderson vs. Giants ($5,800)
PFF has Darrell Henderson ranked as the best running back in the NFL through three weeks. Impressive to say the least. He’s averaging 5.7 yards per carry and 6.5 yards per touch. His week 4 match up against the Giants sets up perfect. Henderson can be used in cash games and tournaments. It would behoove Sean McVay to use Henderson early and often, both in the running game and passing game. The time is now to use him as Cam Akers is sidelined.
Myles Gaskin vs. Seahawks ($5,000)
The Dolphins, maybe, just maybe have some stability in their back field. It’s been a disaster since Ricky Williams sailed off into the sunset. Jordan Howard and Matt Breida were acquired this offseason, but as of recently, Gaskin has the role. His role as a bell cow is yet to be seen, but he’s catching five passes a week. Perfect. The game script against Russell Wilson and the Seahawks is not favorable this weekend, but it will lead to a ton of throwing from Ryan Fitzpatrick as the Phins play catch up. Seattle has been horrendous at stopping the pass so far.
Bonus: David Johnson vs. Vikings ($5,600)
Tee Higgins vs. Vikings ($4,500)
Rookie Tee Higgins played 60 plays week 3 and was able to carve out a role in a crowded stable of pass catchers. The rookie meshed with Joe Burrow catching 5-of-9 targets for 40 yards, and two touchdowns. The passing volume will be there for Higgins and he is the cheaper, lower owned option off of Tyler Boyd and A.J. Green. How he’ll be used week to week will be unknown with such a small sample size, but it’s tough to imagine he won’t be involved. A Bengals stack makes sense at a low tournament ownership. Burrow has hit the DraftKings 300 passing yard bonus in back to back weeks. A Burrow-Mixon-Bengals pass catcher stack is mighty enticing.
Hunter Renfrow vs. Bills ($4,600)
Hunter Renfrow has arrived! We got a glimpse of how he wrapped up 2019 with a 6/84/1 performance against the Patriots week 3. Cooper Kupp ate alive the Bills alive week 3 underneath and Renfrow will have the same opportunity. The Raiders are banged up on offense everywhere and Renfrow appears to be the healthiest. Derek Carr will be playing catch up against the Bills, and the two combined make a nice Crate stack. Darren Waller is also discounted after a dud against the Patriots.
Bonus: Greg Ward @ 49ers ($3,900)
Jimmy Graham vs. Colts ($3,900)
It was nice to see shades of the old Jimmy Graham week 3. He caught 6-of-10 targets for 60 yards and two touchdowns. Nick Foles will be leaning on Graham going forward and for now, he’s cheap. A Crate tournament favorite this week at Tight End. Remember when Foles leaned on Zach Ertz in Philadelphia? Envision a Foles-Graham connection in 2020. The Colts have been stingy against Tight Ends so far this season. He’s a tournament play week four.
Mo Alie-Cox @ Bears ($3,900)
Mo Allie-Cox has averaged 16.5 PPR points over the last two weeks and his is filling a hole left by the injured Parris Campbell. Jack Doyle came back week three and Allie-Cox out-snapped him. He’ll get a Bears defense that has allowed touchdowns to tight ends in 2-of-3 weeks. “We want to get him the football and we have a variety of ways we want — we know what he does well and we know what he excels at,” offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni. We’ll take that optimism and play Allie-Cox at a discount. He can be used in cash games or tournaments week four.
Bonus: Lance Thomas vs. Ravens ($3,500)
Bucaneers vs. Chargers ($3,400)
No sense in screwing around this weekend trying to save a buck on defense. The star studded front seven will face Justin Herbert at home. The Bucs have four interceptions, two defensive fumble recoveries, and 11 sacks over the last two weeks. Sign me up and i’m not looking back.
