As we head into Week 4 of the NFL season, it’s time for a look at the top cash game plays in FanDuel DFS games for fantasy football purposes.

Winning FanDuel cash game lineups continue to have one common theme across them. If you can have an accurate projection on a player’s potential targets and volume within an offense, you can find the best cash game plays of the week. That’s our overall goal here within this weekly article. Fine-tuning the best process in order to play the highest-scoring cash game lineups possible. Let’s see what Week 4 has in store for us.

Quarterbacks

Combining fast pace with a plus matchup, Deshaun Watson and the Texans passing attack could take flight this week inside the Colts’ dome. This game combines two of the league’s fastest offenses squaring off against two pass-funnel defenses. The Colts have allowed the fifth-highest completion percentage against opposing QBs and Watson is coming off the heels of two monster fantasy outings.

Another quarterback worth considering for cash games is Cleveland’s Baker Mayfield. Mayfield looked fantastic Thursday night in relief of Tyrod Taylor. Oakland’s sieve of a secondary is allowing a whopping 8.7 yards per attempt to opposing QBs, well above last year’s league-worst rate of 8.0 by the Colts and Texans. Sprinkle in some negative gamescript (3-point road dogs) and you’ve got a recipe for continuous throwing and moving the ball downfield.
