DFS Bargain Hunting: Week 4

kenny golladay dfs bargain hunting week 4

Cutting coupons. It’s a tedious task. You sift through the online ads, or sit at the dining room table with your scissors and circular. You go to the store with your clippings or print outs and search for your items. It’s not fun by any means, but the work is justified by the money you save at the end of a trip. Some people will even go as far as to shop around at several stores to truly find the best deal. Some think it’s crazy. Why not fork over a little extra money to save some time? Trust me, I get it. However, I will never argue with anyone who is trying to save a little extra change, especially in DFS. And thankfully, we aren’t doing any actual grocery shopping this week. Let’s hit some DFS Bargain Hunting for Week 4.  

QUARTERBACK – Matthew Stafford

SITE PRICE TOTAL % OF SALARY
DraftKings $5,500 $50,000 11%
Fanduel $6,900 $60,000 11.5%
FantasyDraft $11,200 $100,000 11.2%

The Lions are surprisingly among the top 10 teams in plays per game so far this season. Before the year, I expected the Lions to focus their offense on controlling the ball with the run game. That hasn’t exactly been the case so far, and certainly won’t be when Patrick Mahomes is on the other side of the field this week. While Matthew Stafford hasn’t exactly put up stellar fantasy numbers, he comes into week four with a 6:2 touchdown to interception ratio. He will need to bring out his Sunday best against the Chiefs this week. He is a viable option across all sites, but is the most discounted on DraftKings. 

RUNNING BACK – Leonard Fournette

SITE PRICE TOTAL % OF SALARY
DraftKings $6,000 $50,000 12%
Fanduel $6,400 $60,000 12.8
FantasyDraft $10.900 $100,000 10.9%

Leonard Fournette hasn’t exactly been the best example of efficiency this season. Outside of a 69-yard run last week, Fournette was bottled up all night long. The silver lining here with the Jaguars clear led back has been his consistent involvement in the passing game. He has been targeted 20 total times this season, giving him a rocksteady floor. If you are a believer in touchdown regression, Fournette is scoreless on the season. If that changes this week, Fournette could be in line to smash. He is affordable on both full-point PPR sites. 

WIDE RECEIVER – Kenny Golladay

SITE PRICE TOTAL % OF SALARY
DraftKings $5,900 $50,000 11.8%
Fanduel $6,700 $60,000 11.1%
FantasyDraft $11,000 $100,000 11%

Kenny Golladay was a major disappointment last week when the Lions went on the road to beat Philadelphia. It was Marvin Jones who ended up being Matthew Stafford’s go-to guy. Golladay had started the season strong, and I think he gets back on track here in the up-tempo game against the Chiefs. He has seen no fewer than 8 targets in each of the Lions first three games. Stafford to Golladay gets the Bargain Hunting “Stack” of Approval this week. Golladay’s volume and floor combination is a clear mispricing on this slate. 

TIGHT END – Will Dissly

SITE PRICE TOTAL % OF SALARY
DraftKings $3,600 $50,000 7.2%
Fanduel $5,400 $60,000 9%
FantasyDraft $6,800 $100,000 6.8%

Will Dissly is shaping up to be the perfect salary-saving matchup play this week. While his fantasy production has been buoyed by three touchdowns in two games, the Arizona Cardinals have bled points to the tight end position so far this season. 

Week 1 – T.J. Hockenson (9 catches, 131 yards, TD)

Week 2 – Mark Andrews (9 catches, 112 yards, TD)

Week 3 – Greg Olsen (7 catches, 75 yards, 2 TD)

See a pattern here? If you are still at all skeptical, you can at least take solace in the fact that Dissly’s targets have crept up from 2 to 5 to 7 just last week. This might be a spot where you don’t overthink it and eat the chalk. Even if Dissly has a less than spectacular game, it won’t effectively kill you at his cheap price. 

DEFENSE –  Washington Redskins

SITE PRICE TOTAL % OF SALARY
DraftKings $2,800 $50,000 5.6%
Fanduel $4,100 $60,000 6.8%
FantasyDraft $5,100 $100,000 5.1%

The Redskins got shelled against the Chicago Bears just days ago on Monday Night Football. This week they will get rookie quarterback Daniel Jones. While Jones looked the part in Tampa Bay leading a heroic comeback win, the Redkins defense might have something to say about it, especially after getting embarrassed. The Giants will also be without the engine that makes the offense go in Saquon Barkley. I know it might be slightly against the grain, but we have always jumped at the opportunity to roster defenses facing rookie quarterbacks. Maybe this spot isn’t so different.
