Russell Wilson is the starting quarterback.
Before playing the San Francisco 49ers, Russell Wilson warms up.
Week 4 opponent: @ Las Vegas Raiders
DraftKings’ daily fantasy pricing is $6,700 while FanDuel’s is $7,100.
Why he should be started: Despite their 2-1 record, the Denver Broncos’ offense has failed to get going, averaging just over 14 points per game after three weeks – second-worst in the NFL. However, the Broncos have too much skill not to break through with a big scoring day at some point, and a meeting against the Raiders could be the ideal opportunity to jumpstart their passing attack.
SIT: Justin Herbert
Against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Justin Herbert looks to throw.
Week 4 foe: visiting Houston Texans
DraftKings’ daily fantasy pricing is $7,100 while FanDuel’s is $8,000.
Why he should be seated: Last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Justin Herbert appeared injured, and it showed in his box score, as he managed only 12.6 fantasy points. While most teams having Herbert on their roster won’t likely have a better alternative to back him up, this week could be the time to make the switch if you do. Allow Herbert to get his footing before placing your faith in him to produce.
START: Taysom Hill

Week 4 opponent: vs. Minnesota Vikings
DraftKings’ daily fantasy pricing is $4,900 while FanDuel’s is $6,000.
Why he should be started: Okay, this play comes with a significant disclaimer. However, Saints quarterback Jameis Winston missed Wednesday’s practice ahead of Sunday’s game against the Vikings in London. Winston says he still intends to play, but given that he is still recovering from a back issue, this is not a foregone conclusion.
In leagues where he is eligible at tight end, Taysom Hill would become a useful option if Winston were to be ruled out or questionable. Hill is currently a playable tight end for FanDuel but not DraftKings.
SIT: Tua Tagovailoa

Week 4 foe: visiting Cincinnati Bengals
DraftKings’ daily fantasy pricing is $6,500 while FanDuel’s is $7,600.
Why he should be seated: Sunday, Tua Tagovailoa took a hard knock and got up shaky. While the Dolphins said it was a back injury, it appeared Tagovailoa was sacked. With Miami now slated to travel to Cincinnati on a short week, you may want to consider other quarterback choices for this week.
START: Khalil Herbert
Against the Houston Texans, Khalil Herbert makes a run.
Week 4 foe: the New York Giants on the road
DraftKings is priced at $5,700 while FanDuel is priced at $7,200.
Why he should be started: David Montgomery, the Bears’ main rushing back, missed Sunday’s game with an injury, allowing Khalil Herbert to have a tremendous day. Montgomery is now listed as day-to-day, but even if he plays on Sunday, Chicago will not overwork him due to Herbert’s stellar play.
SIT: Ezekiel Elliott
Against the New York Giants, Ezekiel Elliott runs with the ball.
Week 4 opponent: vs. Washington Commanders
DraftKings’ daily fantasy price is $6,100, while FanDuel’s is $6,400.
Why he should be seated: Elliott’s 14-point fantasy effort against the Giants was his best of the season. Even said, he does not appear to be the greatest back on his own squad, as Tony Pollard has shown superior speed in the early weeks. If the Cowboys may have a running back on their roster who is superior to Elliott, there is a potential that you do as well.
START: Jamaal Williams

Week 4 foe: versus the Seattle Seahawks
DraftKings’ daily fantasy pricing is $6,100 while FanDuel’s is $7,400.
Why he should be started: Jamaal Williams receives numerous opportunities in the Lions’ offense, despite not being the man’s starter. This week, with D’Andre Swift doubtful to play against the Seahawks, he should handle the load.
RESUME: Josh Jacobs
Josh Jacobs defends himself against a Tennessee Titans defender.
Week 4 opponent: vs. Denver Broncos
DraftKings’ daily fantasy pricing is $5,000 while FanDuel’s is $6,500.
Why he should be seated: Josh Jacobs has averaged almost 60 rushing yards each game for the Raiders, whose offense has struggled to start the season. This week’s game against the Broncos is less than ideal, as Denver’s rush defense has been quite strong through three weeks. If Las Vegas scores on Sunday, it will likely be through the air.
START: Drake London
Drake London is ecstatic after scoring against the Seattle Seahawks.
Week 4 opponent: versus. Cleveland Browns
DraftKings’ daily fantasy price is $6,100, while FanDuel’s is $6,300.
Why he should be started: Rookie Drake In his first three professional games, London has produced double-digit fantasy points while averaging eight targets per game for the Falcons offense. With Myles Garrett possibly missing from the Browns pass rush this week, London might be in for a spectacular day.
SIT: Christian Kirk
Christian Kirk battles the Los Angeles Chargers for additional yards.
Week 4 opponent: Philadelphia Eagles on the road
DraftKings’ daily fantasy pricing is $6,600 while FanDuel’s is $7,600.
Why he should be seated: Justin Jefferson and Terry McLaurin have seemed downright mediocre against Philadelphia for two consecutive weeks, as the Eagles’ defense has stymied the opponent’s premier receiver. The same fate could befall Christian Kirk when the Jaguars go to Philadelphia this week.
Romeo had doubts at the beginning.
Romeo Doubs carries the ball while playing against the Chicago Bears.
Week 4 opponent: vs. New England Patriots
DraftKings’ daily fantasy pricing is $4,500 while FanDuel’s is $5,900.
Why he should be started: Aaron Rodgers is still searching for trustworthy receivers in the Packers’ offense. Romeo Doubs earned this trust after catching all eight of his targets for 73 yards and a touchdown last week. Rodgers needs a receiver with sure hands to bolster the Packers’ receiving depth, and Doubs appears to be the man.
SIT: D.J. Moore
D.J. Moore moves past a defender while competing against the New Orleans Saints.
Week 4 opponent: vs. Arizona Cardinals
DraftKings is priced at $5,300 while FanDuel is priced at $6,100.
Why he should be seated: D.J. Moore possesses all the necessary skills to be a quality fantasy receiver, but with the current state of the Panthers offense, it is difficult to trust him. Moore has never had more than three receptions in a game this season, and he caught only one of six targets over the weekend.
SIT: DeVante Parker
DeVante Parker catches a pass versus the Baltimore Ravens.
Week 4 opponent: at Green Bay Packers
DraftKings’ daily fantasy pricing is $4,600 while FanDuel’s is $5,700.
Why he should be seated: DeVante Parker had a tremendous game against the Ravens, but with QB Mac Jones expected to miss Sunday’s game, his odds of duplicating that performance are limited.
START: T.J. Hockenson
A touchdown is scored by T.J. Hockenson against the Minnesota Vikings.Week 4 foe: versus the Seattle Seahawks
DraftKings’ daily fantasy pricing is $4,100 while FanDuel’s is $5,400.
Why he should be started: The Lions have scored more points than any other NFL club, with the exception of the Ravens. With running back D’Andre Swift likely out with an injury, tight end T.J. Hockenson’s use should increase slightly, particularly in the red zone.
SIT: Zach Ertz

Week 4 foe: Carolina Panthers at home
DraftKings’ daily fantasy pricing is $4,700 while FanDuel’s is $5,500.
Why he should be seated: Zach Ertz has been one of the greatest fantasy tight ends so far this season; if he is on your roster, you will likely play him. However, there are other tight ends I would rather pay a premium for this week if I were a daily fantasy player. Last week, Ertz snagged only six of the ten targets thrown his way, and the Cardinals’ offense may be on the cusp of a complete rebuild.
START: Packers defense

Week 4 opponent: vs. New England Patriots
DraftKings is priced at $4,100 while FanDuel is priced at $5,000.
Why he should be started: Due to Mac Jones’s injury, the Patriots will likely turn to Brian Hoyer or Bailey Zappe to direct the offense. Regardless of who starts as quarterback for the Packers, the defense should have a field day.
SIT: Chargers defense

Week 4 foe: visiting Houston Texans
DraftKings’ daily fantasy pricing is $3,700 while FanDuel’s is $4,400.
Why he should be seated: On paper, this is a favorable matchup for the Chargers, but considering the defensive issues they are dealing with, it may be best to search elsewhere for a fantasy defense this week.
