Finding the best anchors for your DFS lineup is the best way to start lineup construction, so each week in this space, I’ll be taking a look at a skill-position breakdown of players who stick out on FanDuel. Whether it’s because of matchup or usage or anything else, these are players who should feature heavily in lineups.

Let’s take a look at the FanDuel plays for Week 4



Quarterbacks | FanDuel Week 4 picks

Can Kyler Murray keep up this crazy pace?

($8,200, at Los Angeles Rams)

Kyler Murray has to be the frontrunner for NFL MVP, right? He’s already thrown for over 1,000 yards this season, and he is one of those unique Konami code QBs that seems to push some rushing yards into the total. He’s hit nearly 20 yards rushing every game, and he’s fired in a rushing score in every game this year. That’s pretty spicy. And this week? He’s a monster underdog in what should be a high-scoring game (54.5 point over/under), meaning he will be active. Murray is a boss.

Jalen Hurts could lead Philly to a monster upset in Week 4

($7,900, vs. Chiefs)

The NFL season is only three weeks old, so it’s easy to be prone to hyperbole with some early season learnings. But there’s clearly a defensive issue going on in Kansas City. So far, they’ve been slammed by Justin Herbert (281 yards, 4 TD), Lamar Jackson (346 total yards, 3 TD), and Baker Mayfield (321 yards). The Chiefs have allowed the second-most points to opposing quarterbacks, and the Eagles are in the top-10 in pace. Jalen Hurts could feast.

Running back | FanDuel Week 4 picks

Go back to King Henry in Week 4

($10,200, at New York Jets)

Remember us writing up the king a week ago? If you faded him, you did it at your own risk. And that was a poorly calculated risk that you took. While some negative regression was certainly coming, Derrick Henry went beast mode last week in a tight game — he toted the rock 28 times for a delightful 113 yards. And Henry as a pass catcher? Oh baby. As we take a quick peek at our FTN tool that shows points allowed by position, the Jets are getting straight roasted by opposing running backs. If you can afford him, he seems to definitely be worth the investment.

Alexander Mattison may break this slate

($6,800, vs. Cleveland Browns)

Of course, this play entirely hinges on the health of Dalvin Cook. Cook was absent in Week 3 after gutting through an ankle injury in Week 2. Alexander Mattison, if the starter, becomes a monster play this week. He was one yard from leading the entire slate in rushing in Week 3, and he touched the ball 32 times. He’s clearly a major focal point of this offense if Cook is out.



Wide receiver | FanDuel Week 4 picks

There’s still reason to believe in CeeDee Lamb

($7,400, vs. Carolina Panthers)

Perhaps the sky isn’t exactly falling in Dallas, as that was a butt whoopin’ the Cowboys put on the Eagles Monday night. Up 27-7 in the third quarter, the passing attack, in such a positive gamescript, wasn’t exactly needed. With an over/under of 50 points set in this potential shootout and 27 targets on the season, equating to a 24.3% target market share, don’t be scared off by Lamb’s three catches Monday night.

Robert Woods is an underrated part of a monster Rams offense

($6,200, vs. Arizona Cardinals)

Here’s the clarity that we do have in the Rams offense — Matthew Stafford is actually an upgrade over exited signal-caller Jared Goff. The Rams lead the NFL in scoring (31.7 PPG), and while Cooper Kupp is clearly the leader in the pass catching tree, let’s not ignore Robert Woods. He’s got a 21.9% air yards share in this prolific offense, and this game has a monster 54.5 over/under total in this game. 

Tight end | FanDuel Week 4 picks

Gerald Everett could be a monster play this week

($4,900, vs. San Francisco 49ers)

It’s becoming pretty evident that the Seattle Seahawks don’t exactly have a third option in their passing attack, at least one they seem to have settled on yet. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf are the clear-cut top two options. So far this season, Gerald Everett has played on 77% of offensive snaps. Everett caught all five targets in Week 3, and at an affordable price point, he makes for a great option in what could be an offensive shootout.
