Week 4 FanDuel Fantasy Football Highlights

Here are some of the highlights from FanDuel lineups this past week.


Vincent Jackson

Despite the struggles of Jameis Winston last week, Vincent Jackson had one of the better FanDuel performances from Week 4. With 10 catches for 147 yards and a touchdown, Jackson was able to rack up a whopping 25.7 FanDuel points.*Jackson's 15 targets led all Buccaneers players last week, and that isn't likely going to change any time soon. Despite solid production this season, Jackson is still going for just $6,800 on FanDuel, so players might want to jump in and start him while his price is still low. The Buccaneers offense will have a solid matchup this week against the Jacksonville Jaguars, so Winston will be looking for Jackson early and often on Sunday. Running Backs Stay Hot *

There were some absolutely dominant FanDuel performances in Week 3 from running backs around the league, and that didn't change this week.*Devonta Freeman, who racked up 39.8 FDP in Week 3 after rushing for 140 yards and three touchdowns, was back at it again this week. Going against the Houston Texans, Freeman picked up another three touchdowns to go along with 149 total yards, giving him another 35.4 FDP. Playing in London, Chris Ivory ran all over the Miami Dolphins rushing for 166 yards and a touchdown in a 22.6 FDP performance. Meanwhile, St. Louis Rams rookie Todd Gurley got his first taste of significant NFL playing time and shined. Although he didn't find the end zone, Gurley still picked up 17.1 FDP after rushing for 146 yards on just 19 carries. Running backs continue to shine for FanDuel players, so picking the right ones will continue to be essential in the coming weeks. What to Watch For *

He may be the second-most expensive running back on FanDuel, but Le'Veon Bell of the Pittsburgh Steelers could have a huge game against the San Diego Chargers, especially with Ben Roethlisberger still sidelined with a knee injury.*In the Steelers' first game without Big Ben, Bell was able to rush for 129 yards and a touchdown with 24.5 FDP.  This week presents a mouth-watering matchup for FanDuel players, as the Chargers have given up the second-most fantasy points to opposing running backs this year. His price is still a lofty $9,000, but for those who want to build a lineup around a stud, Bell is your guy. As far as sleepers go, FanDuel players might want to consider looking at Eddie Royal of the Chicago Bears. In Jay Cutler's return, Royal caught seven passes for 54 yards and a touchdown.  To make things even better, the Bears are going against a Kansas City Chiefs defense that has allowed by far the most fantasy points to opposing tight ends, leaving the Baltimore Ravens in a distant second. *With Alshon Jeffery still dealing with a hamstring injury, Royal's $5,500 price tag sounds more than reasonable.You can read all the latest in daily fantasy news, updates, and content at FanDuel.com/Insider.
