QB: Russell Wilson

FanDuel – $7,900

DraftKings – $7,300

After coming off of his best game of the season, Russell Wilson now has a dream matchup in week four versus the Indianapolis Colts, who rank 30th in the league against the pass. With inconsistent offensive line play and a banged up receiving group, Wilson does not have everything going his way. But at home with this price tag in this matchup, he shapes up well to be a good starting QB for DFS in all formats. Some people will be rolling with the likes of Trevor Siemian and Deshaun Watson, as they are both inexpensive and have good matchups, but I feel much safer paying up just a bit for the much more proven Wilson.

 

RB: Ezekiel Elliott

FanDuel – $8,500

DraftKings – $8,200

Elliott bounced back nice last week after his abysmal performance in week two against the Cardinals. This week, he finds himself in a matchup at home against the Rams, who have surrendered the 29th most rushing yards against them so far this season. They also lead the league in opposing rushing touchdowns with six in just four games. Expect the Cowboys to take control of this game with ease and pound the rock with Elliott, giving him upwards of 25 touches. With such an easy matchup, game flow on his side, and the amount of touches he is expected to see, Ezekiel Elliott could be in store for yet another huge game.

WR: Larry Fitzgerald

FanDuel – $6,700

DraftKings – $6,100

Fitz generated much love for the first two weeks, but he failed to produce and did not meet expectations. Last week, when everyone jumped off the bandwagon, he decided to go off. This week I am hopping right back on the Larry Fitz train with his matchup against the porous 49rs secondary. Fitzgerald has shredded the 49rs in recent years, averaging over 100 yards per game over the past two seasons and finding the end zone four times in their last four meetings. He also ranks third in the league in targets, trailing only the likes of Antonio Brown and DeAndre Hopkins. At this price tag, his recent success against the Niners, and his target share, I don’t see how he can’t be a cash game lock and a good fit in some GPP lineups as well.

 

TE: Charles Clay

FanDuel – $5,300

DraftKings – $3,700

While many people are going to be using Zach Ertz here, I will be playing a little contrarian and rolling the dice on the Bills tight end in what could be one of the higher scoring games on the slate. Over the last couple seasons, the Falcons have had consistent troubles with opposing tight ends, which bodes well for Clay and could give him a chance to find the end zone, like he has twice already this season. The Bills are going to try and get Shady involved early, but in all likelihood, they will fall down in the game and be forced to abandon the run, resulting in more targets to Clay. At this discounted price tag, Clay is worth a look this week. He has an extremely good chance to finish top-5 at his position.

D/ST: Jaguars

FanDuel – $5,200

DraftKings – $3,600

The Jets are just so horrible that this position could be a plug and play every week for who is playing against them. The Jets are averaging just over 12 points per game and now have to go up against a defense who slaughtered the Ravens last week. Admittedly, the Jags did not look great week two against the Titans, but as a whole, this defensive unit has looked good. They have created eight turnovers in their first three games and racked up an impressive 13 sacks as well. Even with Jalen Ramsey questionable for this one, expect the Jaguars to do something similar to the Jets as they did last week in London against the Ravens.
