One can start to notice significant price changes on DraftKings and other DFS platforms heading into Week 4 of NFL action.
When the lines move, we have the chance to take advantage of some of these new price points in our DFS fantasy football lineups. Let’s take a closer look at my DFS picks for NFL Week 4.

Week 4 DFS Locks
Anthony Richardson, QB, Indianapolis Colts ($6,700)
Anthony Richardson looked like he was well on his way to a monster fantasy outing against the Houston Texans back in Week 2 before exiting the game in the first half with a concussion.
Despite missing a game and a half, Richardson is still tied with Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts for the most rushing touchdowns amongst QBs up to this point of the season.
If Richardson can pick up where he left off against the Los Angeles Rams defense, then his $6,700 price point is too enticing to pass up.
D’Andre Swift, RB, Philadelphia Eagles ($5,700)
Speaking of Philadelphia’s rushing attack, it appears we finally got an answer to who the lead back is going to be in the immediate future last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
D’Andre Swift now has two consecutive games with 100+ rushing yards on the ground and outworked fellow back Kenneth Gainwell by a wide margin while the game was still competitive.

Swift has easily looked like the more dynamic option out of the backfield and should continue to see plenty of work behind an offensive line that is currently manhandling opposing fronts with ease.
They will be tested against the Washington Commanders this week, but Swift should still be productive as the primary ball carrier in an explosive offense.
Puka Nacua, WR, Los Angeles Rams ($6,700)
In what was a “down” week for Puka Nacua, he still managed to produce five receptions for 72 yards on seven targets while playing 96% of the offensive snaps.
Nacua already showcases a veteran-type feel for settling down in open zones, which is evident by the fact quarterback Matthew Stafford trusts him to read the defense with the same set of eyes as him just three games into his NFL career.
Over the past two weeks, a pair of other rookie wide receivers — Zay Flowers and Tank Dell — have managed to generate a minimum of seven receptions against this Colts defense.
Flowers, Dell, and Nacua all possess a versatile skill set that can move all over the formation, win against man or zone coverage, and generate extra yardage after the catch.
Expect Nacua to have one more big day before Cooper Kupp potentially returns to the lineup in Week 5.
Dalton Kincaid, TE, Buffalo Bills ($3,200)
Dalton Kincaid is coming off his least-productive game in his young NFL career.
He saw fewer snaps and targets than fellow Bills teammate Dawson Knox at the tight end position against the Commanders, which is why his price point is so low heading into this matchup against the Miami Dolphins.
And while his two catches for just three yards are disappointing no matter how you try to spin it, Kincaid should see a far better game script against the high-powered Dolphins in Week 4.
Miami has given up two receiving touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season, which could give Kincaid a greater chance to sneak into the end zone in what could be a high-scoring contest in the AFC East.
Cleveland Browns D/ST ($2,800)
Is this price point an error? Or am I missing something here?
The Cleveland Browns defense has been nothing short of phenomenal through the first three games of the season.
Need proof? Here is a list of the major defensive categories and where the Browns currently rank.
Total Yards Per Game: 163.7 (1st)
Allowed Points Per Game: 10.7 (1st)
Passing Yards Allowed Per Game: 111.7 (1st)
Rushing Yards Allowed Per Game: 52.0 (2nd)
It makes absolutely no sense that the Browns are the eighth-cheapest defensive option for this Sunday slate. The Baltimore Ravens offense is talented but currently very banged up and isn’t exactly setting the league on fire like the Dolphins through the first three weeks of the season.
At this price point, I don’t see how you cannot feel comfortable about starting the Browns defense for your DFS team.
