Top 5 Draftkings Plays for week 4 NFL




Quarterback: Philip Rivers SD @ NO ($6900)
Rivers is coming into the week 4 matchup averaging just above 264 passing yards per game.  Although he has only amounted 793 passing yards on the season, good for 15th in the NFL, that could all change after his tilt with the New Orleans Saints.  The Saints defense is just straight up bad when it comes to stopping the opposing team.  They have given up the second most total yards in the league and are allowing almost 300 passing yards per game.  Not to mention they are allowing 32 points per game as well (even after they held the Giants to only 16 points in week 2).  With the combination of high points and yards allowed, Rivers, like most QBs who have faced the Saints this season, is in line to have a great game.  Look for him to connect with the like of Tyrell Williams, Travis Benjamin, and Melvin Gordon early and often.  However, as bad as the Saints D is, their offence isn't bad at all. After all, Drew Brees has the most passing yards in the league.  This could bode well for Rivers and could add to his potential of exploding in week 4, make sure he is in your lineup.

Running Back: LeGarrette Blount BUF @ NE ($5000)
Blount, through 3 weeks sees himself leading the league in rushing yards (298) and rushing TDs (4).  He has flourished in the absence of Tom Brady and should continue to do so this week versus the Bills.  He has seen the endzone in every game thus far and has see 20+ touches in each game as well.  Buffalo is allowing 98 yards per game to opposing RBs and have allowed 5 rushing TDs this season, 3rd most in the NFL.  Look for Blount to resume his normal workhorse position and be aprime piece in an offence with two ailing quarterbacks.  Until Brady returns, Blount will continue to succeed.

Wide Receiver: Terrelle Pryor CLE @ WSH ($4300)
Pryor went off last week and did pretty much everything possible in one game for one player.  He had 35 passing yards, 21 rushing yards and capped it off with a huge 144 receiving yards.  He played QB and was given the opportunity to make 5 throws and completed 3 of them.  He rushed the ball 4 times and had a YPC of 5.3 while also scoring a touchdown.  He caught 8 passes for 144 yards. All with a salary that caused most people to overlook him, something that might happen again in week 4.  If he continues to be the ultimate utility player for the Browns, his value will be unbelievable.  This is especially true if he continues to be used as a quarterback.  He could see huge TD games if he is played at the 3 primary offensive positions.  Even if they keep him solely at WR, his value is still justified with a modest price tag.  We'll see how the Browns choose to deploy this offensive weapon.

Tight End: Travis Kelce KC @ PIT ($4800)
Kelce finally had an explosive game last week in the Chiefs route of the Jets.  While their defence stole the show, Kelce collected 89 yards from 6 receptions with a TD.  Kelce leads the Chiefs this year with 197 receiving yards on 17 catches.  He has been targeted 21 times which is the second most behind no.1 WR Jeremy Maclin.  In what should be a pass heavy game for the Chiefs, look for Kelce to see plenty of action and outplay his small price tag of $4800.  With other TEs priced above him, Kelce has a real ability to outperform them and have another successful week in fantasy football.

D/ST: Arizona Cardinals LA @ ARZ ($3900)
If there was ever a week to spend up on a defensive unit, it is this week.  The Cards are playing the Rams who are averaging the least amount of yards per game in the NFL(262.7 yards/game).  The Cards are in the top 4 for sacks with 9 and 5th in INTs with 4 to go along with a forced fumble and fumble recovery TD.  They also rank in the top 10 for yards allowed per game.  Case Keenum has thrown for more INTs than TDs early on in the season (3:2). The Rams have clearly struggled offensively this year with most of their success coming off of the run.  If the Cardinals figure out a way to shut down Todd Gurley and the gang, they should be able to shut down this relatively weak offense.
