Week 4 optimal FanDuel lineup: Using PFF's resources to create a lineup
Week 4 is the beginning of the bye weeks. You cannot play the Philadelphia Eagles or the Green Bay Packers because Carson Wentz has gone hunting. Seriously.
Also, this week the NFL scheduled a London game. Not only do we have to start football with coffee at 9:30 a.m. ET Sunday, but we also can’t use the Indianapolis Colts or Jacksonville Jaguars in a majority of our DFS contests.
Like I mentioned last week, there was a DFS rule change and now the main contests only run Sunday games. Therefore, you can’t play the Monday night players in the main games, so no New York Giants or Minnesota Vikings.
Six teams have been ruled out in one fell swoop. Not to mention, the Bengals and Dolphins played Thursday, so they’re out too. It’s time to use all of the tools at your disposal to create a winning FanDuel lineup.
I talk about the WR/CB chart every week. Sometimes I talk with colleagues or other people around the industry about how they use the tool. They use it for their articles, their appearances and certainly when they’re setting their own lineups. I also talk with Twitter followers who tell me they have a subscription to PFF because of the WR/CB chart. But you may not have heard of it, so I’m going to put this tool at the top of mind.
If you don’t know how to read the chart, there is a key right at the top of the tool that explains all of the information at your disposal:
When I get to this page, I sort by Advantage, right in the middle of the chart. The higher the number and more green the advantage cell, the better the matchup is for the wide receiver. You’ll also note the players in all caps. Those are the projected “shadow” situations.
