Week 7 – 4th and Goal NFL DFS PLAYS


Cousins – With Dalvin Cook set to miss this week again, we should see Kirk throw 30-35 passes. I said on the pod, Minnesota likes to “run” the ball with short routes and screens so we should see that often this week. If you’re not paying up for Gurley, Thielen would be the guy to pay up for. 

Trubisky – Back to back 300 yard games, including 6 touchdowns. New England struggles with the pass defensively, and Chicago has a bunch of weapons who can exploit this defense. Cohen is highly involved, but my favorite correlation this week is Gabriel with Mitch. 

Beathard – Going on week 4 now having CJ as one of my top quarterbacks. He’s still way underpriced and has the weapons that can keep pace with this LA team. His floor is around 18 FanDuel points, and at $6,400 that’s smashing value week to week.  

Others I’m ok with 





Running Backs 

Gurley – In a smash spot. We’re not questioning his matchup, we’re questioning his ownership. 

Kamara/Ingram – I love this combo together. New Orleans tends to struggles a bit through the air outside of the dome, so this thunder and lightning combo should set the tone offensively for them. 

White/Michel – another combo I think you can play together. I do like this game offensively for New England. Just keep an eye on Michel with his questionable tag. 

Cohen – should be involved heavily in the passing game. 

Breida – This guy is tough, really tough. He’s been playing through all types of injuries. He gets a Rams D that’s not as imposing as they seem. San Fran needs to control the clock on the ground in order to keep the LA offense on the sideline. Expect a heavy dose of Breida this week. 

Other I’m ok with 

Buck Allen 

K. Johnson

Chubb (will be chalky – I’m not sure how much I trust him in his first start) 



Wide Receivers  

Thielen – Top WR in the league. If you don’t pay up for Gurley, pay up for Thielen. 

Woods – With Kupp out, Woods should see an uptick in targets. 

Brown – New Orleans struggles to defend receivers and Quarterbacks who can throw the deep ball. Brown’s still set is similar to DeSean Jackson who torched this week earlier in the year. Expect Flacco to find Brown a few times for 30+ yard gains. 

Gabriel – Great spot for him against this Patriots D. Back to back 100 yard games, and has caught all 12 of his last targets. 

Others I’m ok with




Tight END 

Kittle – He’s seen at least 6 targets in all of Beathard’s starts and has gone over 79 yards in 3 of 4. They’ll need to lean on him in order to keep pace with LA if the run game struggles.


Njoku – TE’s vs Tampa. Lock and load. 

Ebron – TY is back this week, but Ryan Grant is out. That’s still 6 targets that should be filtered out to other targets. Ebron has been the best TE in football this year, and should continue today.
