FanDuel Best Buys Week 4

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Editor's Note: FanDuel is running a $2,000,000 fantasy football league in week 4. The top 90,800 teams win cash with $150,000 paid to first place on Sunday. Join now!

This week we will highlight one player at every position that is primed for a big week that doesn't have a huge salary.  Finding those guys is the key to winning large field tournaments like the one linked above.


Derek Carr is only $7,000 this week facing a really bad Bears team on the road. That makes him the 16th most expensive quarterback on the board for the Sunday/Monday slate. Sign me up! Stacking him with Amari Cooper is also a very good idea, if you are into that kind of thing.

Running back

Karlos Williams is the play here. LeSean McCoy is not going to play, and the Bills' offense is actually really good.  Playing the running back of a home favorite is generally a good idea.  Williams is the only running back to score in all 3 weeks. There is no reason he can't make it 4 for 4 now that he will be the #1 option.

Wide receiver

Allen Hurns is my guy here. He has over 60 yards in each of the first three weeks and is only $5,300. Allen Robinson will probably draw Vontae Davis in coverage all day. That leaves the rest of the Colts' rag-tag secondary to match-up with Hurns. Blake Bortles isn't good, but he does love to throw the ball down the field. The Jaguars will also probably be playing from behind in this one (although keep an eye on Andrew Luck's status), so they will be throwing a lot late.

Tight end

Martellus Bennett is a good option here. Opposing tight ends have 20 catches for 297 yards and 5 touchdowns in 3 games so far this season. I want a piece of that action!


I like the Eagles at $4,500. They get turnover-happy Kirk Cousins in a game that could be affected by a hurricane. It looks like the storm isn't going to make landfall, but the winds could still be swirling in DC on Sunday. This will be one to check out on Sunday morning to see what the weather is doing.
