DraftHustle’s Top Fanduel Tournament Game Plays of the Week!
Justin Herbert– LAC ($8,000) vs Texans
Justin Herbert is a week removed from a rib injury and is getting his top WR back this week. The Chargers are coming off a week where they got spanked by the Jaguars by 28 points. I expect them to right the ship against the Texans, who have a high-ranking pass defense on paper because they have faced the likes of Justin Fields and Matt Ryan. Herbert will garner low ownership due to his injury, and he has the potential to put up 3+ TDs every week.
Austin Ekeler – LAC ($8,400) vs Texans
Austin Ekeler has not lived up to expectations so far this year, but he has a chance to get back on the right track in week 4. The Chargers face the Houston Texans who give up a league worst 159 Rushing yards per game to RBs this season. The Chargers were expected to a be a front runner in the AFC and this is the perfect game to lean on their workhorse RB and get back on the winning track. I expect at least one score for Ekeler who has yet to score this season.
Devonta Smith – PHI ($6,900) vs Jaguars
DeVonta Smith had a huge game in week 3, putting up a 12/8/169/1 line for 26.9 Fanduel pts in week 3. I’m not expecting that in week 4, but he has the potential to have a big game any week, including this week against the Jaguars. The Eagles have the 3rd highest Vegas implied team total (27.5) on the slate, and the Eagles struggle running the ball, which means more passing and more chances for DeVonta to break the slate again.
David Njoku – CLE ($5,700) vs Falcons
In week 3, the Browns finally decided to let David Njoku get the workload his contract says he should get, and he delivered with a 9 catch, 89 Receiving yard, and 1 TD game. In week 4, he gets an excellent matchup against the Falcons, who give up the 2nd most Fanduel PPG (17.2). At $5,700, Njoku makes for a great play in both cash games and GPPs.
Indianapolis Colts – ($3,700) vs Tennessee Titans
We are bargain-bin shopping in GPPs for DSTs this week, and the Colts are my favorite this week. The matchup against the Titans who are a little offensively challenged is a solid matchup. The Colts DST has the 3rd highest points value based on Drafthustle’s projections and have the second highest +/- value on this slate. This also frees up space to get those studs in you GPP lineups.
