The 2017 NFL Schedule rolls into Week 4 as teams look to solidify themselves as the first quarter of the regular season comes to an end. Luckily for Daily Fantasy Football owners looking to cash in on FanDuel, the action this week is heavy with a ton of prime-time fantasy matchups to consider.
For us while we love the idea of building around guys like Tom Brady, Julio Jones and Rob Gronkowski. The reality is that simply can’t be done without jeopardizing the rest of your FanDuel lineup or by finding one or two solid bargains or fantasy sleepers to build around. One of those bargain/sleeper types we like this week is Marvin Jones of the Detroit Lions while Kenny Golladay if in action could see some usage despite his injury situation.
Here is our look at some of our key FanDuel Bargains & Sleepers for week 4 of the 2017-2018 NFL Season.
Running Back Bargains & Sleepers
D’Onta Foreman – Houston Texans: Now Foreman might not be the main back in Houston but he is still a real threat to possible be a fantasy weapon moving on. While Foreman isn’t a must use option, he does present a solid option under the $5k mark and one that managed to post 10 fantasy points last week despite touching the ball just 10 tens. Look for the Texans to get Foreman involved in the passing game early to help mix up the Tennessee Titans defense.
Javorius Allen, Baltimore Ravens: Despite managing to get just 28 yards total last week we still like Allen against the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend. One thing for owners looking to Allen is the fact Terrance West lost a fumble last week coming just one play after taunting the Jacksonville Jaguars. In the past, this has led some players to go into the dog house in Baltimore which could open up Allen for a big game. Allen has also been targeted six times in each of the last two games out of the backfield.
Other notable Running Back Bargains and Sleepers include Joe Mixon, Branden Oliver &Wayne Gallman (Possible injury option).
Wide Receivers Bargains & Sleepers
Will Fuller V – Houston Texans: While this could be a deep sleeper type of play we like the idea of locking in Fuller if he is a go against the Tennessee Titans. The Titans enter this contest having allowed over 500 yards receiving to opposing receivers this season with five total touchdown grabs.
Mike Wallace – Baltimore Ravens: Despite barely hearing his name through the first three weeks of the regular season, Mike Wallace could see some real fantasy value this week. Wallace who is coming off a solid 2016 campaign hasn’t been able to make any real plays on offense but look for him to put a little extra emotion this week as he looks to knock off his former Pittsburgh Steelers team.
Paul Richardson – Seattle Seahawks: One name to pay extra close attention to this week is Doug Baldwin. If Baldwin is a no go for the Seahawks against the Indianapolis Colts, look for Richardson’s stock value to go up. The Colts have allowed 562 yards and three touchdowns to opposing wide receivers this season.
Other notable Wide Receiver Bargains and Sleepers include Rashard Higgins, Tyler Boyd &Travis Benjamin.
Tight End Bargains & Sleepers
Ryan Griffin – Houston Texans: Griffin should see himself move into a more active role in the Texans offense now that C.J. Fiedorowicz has landed on the IR. Last week, Griffin was targeted six times pulling in five of those passes for 61 yards as well as one of them going for a touchdown.
Other notable Tight End Bargains and Sleepers include Austin Seferian-Jenkins, David Njoku& Jesse James (Injury).
