The quarterback position has been a struggle this year for many folks, but we’ve been bringing you consistent winners. Let’s find out who are the best picks at quarterback to win you some cash for Week 4 and who to stay away from.
Josh Allen – ($8,000 DK, $8,450 FD) – Allen is the second most expensive quarterback heading into this week. Some weeks, Allen has struggled but this week shouldn’t be one of those. Allen is playing at home versus the Texans who are 23rd in giving up fantasy points to the quarterback position. Allen has historically earned 31.40 fantasy points per game and 83 percent consistent. He is a must-start this week if you can afford him.
Lamar Jackson – BEWARE – ($7,500 DK, $8,000 FD) – Lamar is one of the more expensive quarterbacks on both sites this week. Normally, he’s one of my favorite players in DFS due to the obscene amount of rushing yards and touchdowns each week. However, this week, Lamar travels to the #1 defense in giving up the fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks in the Denver Broncos. Jackson’s past has not been good when playing away against a good defense. He’s only averaging 22.63 fantasy points per game and is 50% percent consistent. In summary, he’s not worth paying up for this week.

Best Value QB – Taylor Heinicke – ($5,900 DK, $7,400 FD) – As the salaries for the quarterbacks continue to increase on a weekly basis, finding value at the quarterback position gets a little tougher. This week, we look at the new starter in Washington, Taylor Heinicke. He has quietly averaged 25 fantasy points in the first two weeks as a starter. This week, Heinicke travels to Atlanta who is ranked 26th in giving up fantasy points to quarterbacks. Even if he matches his 25 fantasy points, that’s a great value at his current price tag. Don’t miss out on him.
Best Mid-Value QB – Aaron Rodgers – ($6,800 DK, $7,600 FD) – I know that you’re asking how can Rodgers be a “mid-value” quarterback? Well, he’s only $200 more than Daniel Jones was in this spot last week. In fact, he may be an even better value than Heinicke since he’s only $200 more than him on FanDuel. Rodgers and the Packers welcome Pittsburgh to Lambeau Field this weekend. The Steelers defense is average (ranked 17th) and Rodgers historically has averaged 26.92 fantasy points per game and is 89 percent consistent in that game scenario. He should light it up this week.
BEWARE – QB – Kyle Murray – ($7,800 DK, $8,200 FD) – Murray has been on fire this year and is currently the #2 overall quarterback in fantasy. This week, it may be a week to pass on him in DFS as he plays on the road at the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams have been one of the better defenses so far this year and held Brady in check last week. Murray historically has only been 60% consistent and averaged 18.24 fantasy points when playing in that game scenario. He may be worth a pass this week.
Overall, this week we are seeing some potentially huge values but a few people to stay away from that we normally give a full endorsement.
