Here are the Hot and Cold players from for your NFL DFS Week 4 Lineups.



Tom Brady – The FU Tour is about to begin. The Patriots have a stronger OLine, running game, and oh yeah they are playing the Browns. Brady will have a nice start to the rest of the season

Derek Carr – Carr and the Raiders are off to a fast start on offense. Carr is a top 5 fantasy QB this season and going up against a bottom pass D with a good offense themselves. There should be points in Oakland

Brian Hoyer – Cutler was an option in fantasy depending on the size of your league and matchup. Cutler is gone but don’t think Hoyer, who also was a borderline starter last year depending on matchup, cant replicate what Jay did


Cam Newton – I’m not saying don’t start Cam, however with don’t think Newton getting hit hard doesn’t scare the Panthers. Be prepared for fewer and fewer goal line rushes

Tyrod Taylor – Big win for the Bills with not very good fantasy statistics and also Sammy Watkins is on IR. Taylor is only a situational starter at best

Kirk Cousins – Cousins is having the season we all thought he would, not as good as last year, but still a starter every week. Baltimore is a top 10 pass defense but also top 5 pass D against tight ends. With better defense on Reed, Cousins also wont have great success

Running Backs


Todd Gurley – Rams are struggling while winning games…..that’s good for Rams fans but not Gurley owners. Bills D isn’t that good and made to look better going up against a 3rd string QB last week. Start the Gurley breaking out noise

Jeremy Hill – 22 carries. 22 carries. Sure no TD hurt his fantasy points but I will take 22 touches from a number 2 running back every week. Hill may get 22 carries again

DeMarco Murray – Remember that line from above about 22 carries for a running back, that was against a Miami defense that Murray is facing this week


Carlos Hyde – I have been bringing up Cards rushing D a lot and they have been slowly getting better. 49ers have had success on offense but plan on Arizona winning this battle

Latavius Murray – Touches slowly getting less and less. He still may be the goal line back but minimal catches and not close to double digit carries says you may want to look at the passing attack backs instead of Murray

Charles Sims – Lost in the 300 yards receiving and 500 yards of passing was that the running game of the Falcons didn’t have that great of success against the Panthers. Sims and the running game will have even less success

Wide Receivers


Mike Evans – Julio just had 300 yards receiving, Evans will be able to catch the ball on a defense that just gave up over 500 yards because losing Josh Norman does matter

Kelvin Benjamin – First 2 games, 13 catches 199 yards 3 TDs. Last 2 games, 3 catches 39 yards 1 TD. Plan on more passing for Cam instead of running which means force the ball to Benjamin

Jordy Nelson – Touchdown Jordy is back from injury and doing just fine. Packers may not be what we thought but Jordy sure is. Playing the Giants is just another bonus for the season so far for Jordy


Deandre Hopkins – Vikings defense is legit. Expect a low scoring game and low fantasy points on both sides.

Marvin Jones – Jones is having a fantastic year and it will continue but this week be more cautious than optimistic. Eagles defense is tough and ranking in the top 5 defenses for both QBs and WRs

Stefon Diggs – Another casualty of the bruiser between Vikings/Texans. Texans are a top 10 pass defense while a bottom half defense against the run. Plus JJ is out which hurts the run just as much as the pass
