Big sweat in week 3 while I was 1st place in the $4 $100k on Draftkings until 5 minutes left in the afternoon games when I managed to slip to 18th. I also went 4-0 on my sports picks which made for a very profitable Sunday.

Here are a few of my core DraftKings players for NFL week 4 daily fantasy.


B. Bortles – $6,400
Home vs the Colts in what should be a high scoring game. Bortles has 40, 40, and 50 attempts in his first 3 games, and I look for him to dial it in this week to get the yardage and TDs that should follow that attempt volume.

P. Rivers – $6,900
This will likely be a popular pick but he’s got the matchup of the year for him home vs the Saints, who just let up 45 points to Atlanta, and make every offense they play look like the ’07 Patriots.

K. Cousins – $6,500
Home vs the Browns who have a very weak pass defense, Cousins is playing well. He is at a good price right now, down from $7,400 where he started the season. He is just starting to get in rhythm and has a ton of attempts per game.

J. Flacco – $5,900
He’s vs the Raiders, need we say more? Okay, also at a $1,000 price break right now down from $6,900.

Running Backs

M. Gordon – $6,300
Like Rivers, Gordon gets the benefit of playing vs the god awful Saints defense at home this week. Now the sole back since Woodhead’s season ending injury, he is seeing quite a few receptions as well. I faded him so far this year and all last season, but not in this spot.

L. Blount – $5,000
What a season Blount has had so far. One more game until Brady is back and at home vs division rival Buffalo, I can’t imagine Blount not getting another 25+ carries. Pats o-line is playing lights out, and Blount is ridiculously cheap for his production right now.

D. Murray – $6,800
Not crazy about his new high price, or that he is away vs a decent defense. However he’s getting 6 receptions and 15+ carries a game, and is a goal line threat. Titans are using him right now, and while he’s hot, so will I. Tough matchup, away, and OPRK will have him overlooked this week.

J. Forsett – $3,800
Man do I hate this guy. But I just have to gamble on him this week because he is seeing a lot of receptions, and he’s got the matchup home vs Oakland. Not to mention he’s super cheap and will be faded more than the last few weeks due to his poor start to the season.

Wide Receivers

A. Hurns – $4,800
High total in a should-be shootout. I look at Jags to show up big in the pass game and win. I love Hurns’ value at this price, considering Allen Robinson is $8,000 and only gets a few more targets.

TY Hilton – $7,000
Same story here with the total and shootout. Hilton down from $7,500, even after a big game and has gotten 11, 11, and 12 targets.

J. Landry – $6,900
This game may be high scoring, but what will almost definitely happen is Landry getting his average of 12 targets. One of the most popular plays out there right now every week, but for a good reason.

Tight Ends

C. Fleener – $3,200
This f***ing guy. He let me down the first 2 weeks, but I’m going back to him. Way too good of a price and the ball goes his way a lot, he just needs to catch it. Coming off a solid game in Atlanta, this value is just too high to pass up.

G. Olsen – $6,000
So hard to pick the right TE in dfs, never bad to play this guy with the 9-10 targets he gets on the high powered Carolina offense.


Buccaneers – $2,600
Value play. Home vs Denver, and likely will not be owned hardly at all. The vegas line and total here says a lot. I think the Bucs win and Siemian has a rough one.

I also like Redskins, Cardinals, and NYJ defenses.
