NFL DFS DraftKings Cash Picks: Week 4 (Fantasy Football)
NFL DFS cash games are all about building a high-floor lineup that can win in head-to-heads, 50/50s, and double-ups. Each week I’ll highlight my favorite cash game picks that I have some confidence heading into the weekend to put into my player pools.
For more on cash game strategy, be sure you listen to our DFS Cash Overview episode. Be sure you’re also subscribed to the DFS Podcast where Kyle and I go through the main slate every Friday and recap each slate on Tuesdays. Let’s get after it!
*Note: Plays listed below are in order of salary, NOT necessarily ranked by preferred plays. I’ll be updating this article from Friday – Sunday pending any news, so be sure to check back prior to lock!
On this slate, the elite QBs are obviously in play, but I prefer to drop down into the $6K or $5K range in order to try to fit in some of the high priced RBs and WRs listed below. If you’re looking for more QB options, be sure to check out my GPP article later this week.
Anthony Richardson $6,700 vs. LAR
Richardson is practicing in full this week after missing Week 3 with a concussion, so he should be back out there for this home game against the Rams. In less than one and a half games (Richardson was knocked out in the first half of Week 2), we’ve seen Richardson log 13 total carries (nine designed rush attempts) for 75 yards and three scores. He’s the only QB to have multiple 15+ yard runs this season, and the guy missed a game and a half! Any QB who is going to run 10+ times is always going to project well for fantasy, and that’s the case for Richardson. As Kyle pointed out in Pace of Play, this Colts team is running a ton of no huddle, and they’re among the league leaders in plays per game. Perhaps more importantly, they’re the #1 offense in neutral pace. This game is quietly one of the best environments on the slate – it’s got a 47-point total and being played inside Indy’s dome.
