Best Week 4 DFS QB
Rams QB Jared Goff ($6,700 at DraftKings)
Matchup: Giants at Rams
Quietly, Jared Goff is having a strong bounce-back season and his best DFS performance came in Week 3. Against the Bills in Buffalo, Goff threw for 321 yards and scored three touchdowns, nearly leading his team to a comeback win. This week, Goff gets a fantastic matchup as the Rams will host the New York Giants. While the Giants haven’t played a ton of great (fantasy) quarterbacks yet, they still have allowed the 12th-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks.
Against New York’s poor linebacker play and suspect secondary, expect Goff to throw for multiple touchdowns and approach 300 passing yards. At $6,700, Goff is a strong play over several other more expensive quarterbacks, such as Wilson, Mahomes and Lamar Jackson.
Best Week 4 DFS RB
Bills RB Devin Singletary ($5,900)
Matchup: Bills at Raiders
One of the most challenging aspects of DFS through the first three weeks of the NFL season has been finding good running back value. With so many injuries and committees, there are only a handful of backs worth playing each week. But one player who should outproduce his Week 4 price is Devin Singletary.
With Zack Moss out in Week 3, Singletary saw an uptick in touches with 17. He failed to get into the end zone, but Singletary had 121 total yards against the Rams. In Week 4, he will face a Raiders’ defense that allowed 250 rushing yards to the host Patriots. It’s also worth noting that the Raiders have allowed the most fantasy points to running backs through the first three games.
If Singletary can see a similar workload on Sunday, expect him once again to go over 100 total yards and potentially reach the end zone. It’s just a matter of time before Singletary earns his first touchdown this season.
Best Week 4 DFS WR
Rams WR Cooper Kupp ($6,700)
Matchup: Giants at Rams
If you play Goff at quarterback this week, consider stacking him with his top receiver, Cooper Kupp. After struggling at the end of the 2019 season, Kupp has seen an increase in targets, receptions and yards in each of the last three games.
In Week 3, he will face a Giants’ secondary that has struggled mightily with slot receivers. New York has just one reliable cornerback and that is James Bradberry, who only plays on the outside. He will likely be assigned Robert Woods, so Kupp should work against Logan Ryan, who teams have picked on over the past few seasons. Kupp should see a bunch of work and is an excellent bet to go over 100 yards. He might not have the big-play potential of other receivers in the same price range, but Kupp’s volume should make up for that this week.

Best Week 4 DFS TE
Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz ($ 4,300)
Matchup: Browns at Cowboys
Finding reliable tight end production outside of Travis Kelce this season has been nearly impossible. Even Darren Waller had a dud in Week 3, catching just two passes for 9 yards. For that reason, smart DFS players aren’t spending up on the tight end position. Instead, winning players are saving money at the position and gambling on upside.
One tight end with some upside this week is Dalton Schultz of the Dallas Cowboys. Coming off a 22.8 fantasy point performance in Week 2, Schultz caught just four passes for 48 yards against the Seahawks. In Week 4, the Cowboys will take on the Browns, who have allowed the third-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends.
With the Browns’ current situation at linebacker and safety, Schultz is set up to have another big performance this week. Look for the Cowboys’ tight end to see seven or eight targets, especially near the end zone.
Best Week 4 DFS FLEX
Browns WR Jarvis Landry ($5,100)
Matchup: Browns at Cowboys
If you selected Jarvis Landry in the mid-rounds of your season-long league, you are likely disappointed with his production this year. He has caught just 12 passes for 143 yards in three games and has failed to reach the end zone. Landry has seen a total of 13 targets as the Browns have transformed into a ball-control offense with receivers only seeing a handful of targets per game.
However, Landry gets a fantastic matchup in Week 4 as his Browns travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys. Dallas has allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing receivers this season. In Week 3, slot receiver Tyler Lockett racked up 100 yards and three touchdowns against Dallas’ weak secondary. The Cowboys are missing two of their top cornerbacks, including slot Anthony Brown. If this game turns into a shootout, look for Landry to see double-digit targets for the first time all season and to get into the end zone at least once. Landry is a strong flex play at $5,100 for the first time all season.
