Week 4 DraftKings Picks

QB

Cash Cornerstones

Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs ($7,500)

DraftKings just can’t make Mahomes expensive enough.

After a historic 2018 season, he’s opened the 2019 campaign by averaging 398 yards and 3.3 TDs per game. We project him for a modest 327 yards and 2.6 TDs — and he still pops as the best dollars per point play.

Mahomes is in play for both cash games and tournaments.

Daniel Jones, Giants ($5,300)

If you’re looking to go cheap at QB — never a bad idea in cash games — Jones is your man.

Is their risk using a QB in his 2nd career start? Sure. But that’s mostly negated by 3 things:

  1. Price - Jones is QB16 in DraftKings salary.
  2. Rushing ability - Jones ran for 1,323 yards and 17 TDs over 3 seasons at Duke and earned a 79th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine. He posted a 4-28-2 rushing line last week.
  3. Matchup - Jones gets a Redskins squad that sits 30th in DK points allowed to QBs and 27th in Football Outsiders’ pass defense rankings.
