Cash Game DFS Lineup Tips for NFL Week 4
There are a ton of cash games available this week for Week 4 in the NFL that can be played at Draftkings, FanDuel, FantasyDraft and Fan Picks.
This week for our Cash Game lineup tips, we are going to give out two of our top options at each position that we feel are the best option for Cash Game lineups.
Hopefully by putting a few of these guys in your lineup, it will help you win a few of those Cash Games and 50/50’s.
These player suggestions are strictly dedicated to Cash Games and 50/50’s.
Philip Rivers (LA Chargers) – Most people who are playing the Chargers, will lean to Melvin Gordon because of his bit DFS totals this year but on this specific week, I like Rivers. Rivers has a lot of weapons and should be able to use them against the Niners, who are struggling this year.
Tom Brady (New England Patriots) – Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have their backs against the wall and will now be facing a 3-0 Miami Dolphins. Brady and the Pat’s are sort of in a must-win situation as losing to the Dolphins would put them a full 3 games behind Miami. I expect Brady and the Patriots to win this game BIG and by at least 3 touchdowns. I’m writing Brady down for 3-4 touchdowns and 300 yards!
Ezekiel Elliott (Dallas Cowboys) – The Dallas Cowboys are taking on the Detroit Lions and that means it is a safe option to play Ezekiel Elliott in cash games. Detroit allows their opposition to run all over them and that will play right into the game plan of Dallas and Elliott.
Carlos Hyde (Cleveland Browns) – A lot of people are going to jump on Baker Mayfield in GPP’s thinking he is going to air it out for the Browns but I think the opposite. I think the Browns will be very cautious with Mayfield this week as they don’t want to spoil the kid. Last week, he wasn’t expected to come back and win but he did. Last week, he could basically play backyard football and sling it all over but this week, I think they play much more reserved and lean heavily on the running game to guide the way. Hyde sets up to benefit drastically and serve as a cash game hog for carries.
Sterling Shepard (NY Giants) – For cash games, Sterling Shepard is a lock! He is in the ideal spot against the New Orleans Saints in what is expected to be a high scoring game. The total on this game is between 50-51 and those points have to come from somewhere. The Giants will be without Tight End Evan Engram, which will give some extra targets to the Wide Receivers in New York. Lock him in and roll with Sterling Shepard as one of your Wide Receivers in cash games for week 4.
Tyler Boyd (Cincinnati Bengals) – Boyd and the Bengals are most likely going to be in a shootout with the Atlanta Falcons. We gave this game out on the Spooky Express to play over 51 points and Knup also likes this game to go over the posted total per the Spooky Express Final Thoughts Podcast. We gave out Andy Dalton over on our GPP and he will need some receivers to catch those TD passes! My pick is Boyd as most people are going to flock to AJ Green.
Jared Cook (Oakland Raiders) – Cook is a target monster and for cash games, he is a gold mine! He has been targeted by 22 times in 3 games, which is just over 7 targets per game. At 7 targets per game, he is going to reel in near double digit DFS points in nearly game.
Trey Burton (Chicago Bears) – The Bears have began using Burton more and he has turned into the security blanket for Mitch Trubisky. For now, he is a cash game option simple for the targets that he gets in Chicago. He has been thrown to 15 times in 3 games and in a game where their will be lots of clock control, he should have a bigger role in the offense.
Jacksonville Jaguars – Yes they are expensive but they stand to have a very strong outing this week. They are facing a rookie QB and the Jets who are struggling in general. The Jaguars don’t allow many points and they could potentially put up a shutout against the Jets this week. Either way, I don’t foresee any more than 10 points total.
LA Chargers – San Fran lost Jimmy Garoppolo last week and that means they will turn to C.J. Beathard. That means short passes, some dinks and dunks but not many points. Chargers should put up some offense in this game and the defense will get their fair share to pick off Beathard a few times. They are expensive but a bit cheaper than the Jaguars and give you a different option in various lineups.
