Top NFL DFS Value Picks for FanDuel | NFL DFS Week 4
Welcome to the Team Rise or Fall Top NFL DFS Value Picks for FanDuel article. It is here that we’ll look to identify potential spots that will allow you to pay down for plays that are expected to exceed their NFL DFS salaries and put you in a great spot to land on the right side of the cash line.
Week three is in the books which means wear nearly a quarter of the way through the NFL DFS season. We’ve seen some surprises, both good and bad, to this point in the season but it isn’t too late to win some green. Let’s dive into our week four NFL DFS values play on FanDuel.
NFL DFS Value Pick – Quarterbacks
Sam Darnold – Carolina Panthers
Kirk Cousins – Minnesota Vikings
Cousins is one of the better values on the slate according to the Team Rise or Fall NFL DFS Study Hub. Cousins is third in the league with eight touchdown passes, trailing only Brady, Stafford, and Mahomes. This week the Vikings face a tough Cleveland Browns teams that has a stellar defense led by their ferocious pass rushing of Jadeveon Clowney and Myles Garrett. If the Vikings offense line can keep Cousins upright the wide receivers he has are one of the best groups in the league. I love the idea of stacking Cousins with Adam Theilen or Justin Jefferson.
NFL DFS Value Pick – Running Backs
Chuba Hubbard – Carolina Panthers
Christian McCaffrey is out for a few weeks with a hamstring, so the Panthers will rely on the rookie Chuba Hubbard. For those of us who play college football DFS you’ll remember that Hubbard was a monster fir Oklahoma State last season. He played the de facto CMC role after CMC left the game early last Thursday night. The numbers have consistently shown us that it is okay to attack the Cowboys defense and I won’t shy away from Hubbard who has 20 touch potential.
Sony Michel – Los Angeles Rams
NFL DFS Value Pick – Wide Receivers
JuJu Smith-Schuster – Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers are looking to bounce back after a disappointing loss to division rival Cincinnati. While JuJu ranks as the best wideout value on the Team Rise or Fall NFL DFS Study Hub, the Steelers game has been a bit off a concern through the first three weeks of the season. The saving grace for me is the potential absence of Dionte Johnson. Johnson has been a target monster so without him playing there are more opportunities to go around.
Courtland Sutton – Denver Broncos
Sutton has looked good in returning from his torn ACL. He’s shown a good rapport with new starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater has targeted Sutton the most out of any other Broncos player. This week the Broncos face off against the Ravens on what should be a great game for the Broncos to prove they are a contender in the AFC.
NFL DFS Value Pick – Tight Ends
Dalton Schultz – Dallas Cowboys
Logan Thomas – Washington Redskins
Thomas isn’t a high target option compared to the likes of the big three (Kelce, Waller, or Kittle). Where he did thrive was in the red zone last weekend where he scored twice. In tournaments you’re going to need to hit ona lower priced option that finds the end zone multiple times to help in taking you to the top of the leaderboards. Thomas does have 14 targets on the year, good for second on the team.
I know there are some blemishes on each of the players on the list, but remember – you get what you pay for!
