Fantasy Cruncher NFL Week 4 DFS Lineup Optimizer

Four of the ten most owned players on DraftKings last week were members of the New England Patriots.  Julian Edelman (37.6%), Rob Gronkowski (34.8%), Tom Brady (25.4%) and Dion Lewis (20.9%)  found their way onto winning lineups, helping plenty of DFS players win money in Week 3.  LeGarrette Blount was the 9th most valuable player on DK with 28.2 FP and a $4,000 price tag. 

Don't even think about making a DraftKings, FanDuel, FantasyAces or a Yahoo DFS lineup without the Lineup Optimizer via

Week 4 DFS Advice

Using the Fantasy Cruncher lineup optimizer, we created 100 lineups.  Except this time, we removed all of the players we believe will be owned by a majority of DFS players, guys like Aaron Rodgers, Frank Gore, Devonta Freeman, Amari Cooper, Donte Moncrief and Greg Olsen.

Russell Wilson is just $100 more than Cam Newton, but they face two different defenses. 

Wilson gets the Lions at home on Monday Night Football.  Detroit allowed Phillip Rivers to throw for over 400 yards (35 completions) in the season opener before limiting Teddy Bridgewater to 153 yards in Week 2.  Peyton Manning completed 31 passes for 324 yards last week.  All three QBs scored two touchdowns.
Newton will play a divisional game in Tampa Bay, against a Buccaneers defense that has rebounded nicely from a four TD NFL debut by Marcus Mariota.  Remember, Mariota only completed 13 passes for 209 yards.  Drew Brees and Ryan Mallett had nearly identical games, posting a combined 483 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.  The each completed 24 passes.  Tampa is one of 11 teams to have allowed less than 700 passing yards this season.
Tyrod Taylor is a popular option at QB, against a New York Giants defense, but it is important to remember that Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy are OUT.
For that reason, you should turn to Karlos Williams at RB.  The Bills rookie RB has looked great this season, racked up over 100 rushing yards last week and has scored a TD in each of Buffalo's first 3 games.
I have quickly become a believer in spending big money at the WR position.  Guys like Julio Jones and Randall Cobb will rarely let you down and WRs tend to dominate the top scorers list each week.  Thankfully, you will not have to worry about paying for Antonio Brown this weekend as the Steelers played on Thursday Night.  Michael Vick quickly ended Brown's 5/50 streak and without Ben Roethlisberger, is the only big money WR I would not pay for.
There was some worry that Hurricane Joaquin would disrupt the Redskins/Eagles game, but they will play and Jordan Reed is a nice option at TE.  You could stack Taylor with Charles Clay as well as he is $1,200 cheaper than Reed and $2,000 cheaper than Travis Kelce!

DeSean Jackson will not play in Week 4.
