DraftKings Week 4 Lineup Recommendations
By Ben Rolfe
Can you believe nearly a quarter of the season has gone already! The good news is that with each passing game we can develop a better feel for the league. Which players have which roles and who is primed to break out in a big way at any moment? Those are the key questions as always for our DraftKings DFS lineups. With the over going 10-6 last week, we have a high scoring week projected, with nine games on the featured slate having a projected total over 45. Those numbers suggest we could be in for a wild week around the league.

In this article, you will find my Week 4 picks on DraftKings, which are based on matchups, situation, weather and betting lines. The focus of this piece will be looking at upside, and is, therefore, more suited for use in GPP formats. However, the names below can also double up as options in cash games, alongside some safer bets.
Russell Wilson, SEA vs. @ ARI | $6,100
One of the most exciting quarterbacks in the league when he gets rolling facing the second-worst defense in the league when it comes to allowing quarterback points? Yes, I will take that matchup thank you very much. There is always the risk that conservative Seattle make an appearance in this game, which would limit the upside of Wilson. However, Arizona have demonstrated the last three weeks how dangerous they can be late in games and Seattle will want to take no chances.
Arizona have actually proven pretty solid against running backs, so Seattle may need to turn to Wilson to put this game away. The potential for a blow out in this one does worry me about his ceiling, but then again, the Seattle defense is not really good enough to allow them to blow anyone out right now.
Case Keenum, WAS @ NYG | $4,900
Austin Ekeler, LAC @ MIA | $8,000
Josh Jacobs, OAK @ IND | $5,100
Ronald Jones, TB @ LAR | $4,400
Keenan Allen, LAC @ MIA | $7,600
Mecole Hardman, KC @ DET | $5,100
Curtis Samuel, CAR @ HOU | $4,600
Darren Waller, OAK @ IND | $5,200
Lance Kendricks, LAC @ MIA | $2,600
Titans @ ATL | $2,600
