Welcome to the DFS Watch List for NFL Week 4!

Wow. Just wow. When I hopped into the DFS Alarm Discord, I never expected to see someone sweating the million-dollar contest on FanDuel. I mean, I'm pretty confident when I put out the Playbook, Dart Board and Example Lineups, but with so many lineup trains and people building different models and algorithms, not to mention all the sharks who swim in these big multi-entry contests, I just didn't think about this week's winner being someone I know from the #FAmily. 

So before I go any further, allow me to congratulate “Millionaire Mike” on a job well done. Every player he used in his lineup was in the Playbook or the Example Lineups write-up. No gimmicks, no crazy deep dives, just a super-strong lineup build with a Chargers stack and the use of Alexander Mattison as the value play. He used all of our content on the site, utilized the Draft Percentage Forecaster and made some savvy calls to zig when everyone else was zagging. It was sheer magnificence and I could not be happier for him and his family.

Here's a look at the lineup:   

 If you don't normally play on FanDuel and prefer Draft Kings, well, as you know, we score it for you every single week.

So what exactly did last week's Playbook deliver? As always, we like to check in to ensure we remain on the right path.

Scoring The Playbook Week 3

The Playbook had a strong week with an average Value of 2.58X across all positions.  Here are some highlights:

  • Quarterbacks averaged 2.82X Value
  • Defenses averaged 2.92X Value giving you an edge.
  • 12 players topped 20+ DraftKings points
  • The high score that could be made was 212.9 which would have returned 70x in tournaments.

For any newcomers this week:

“If you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he’ll eat for a lifetime.”

We take this adage to heart when it comes to playing NFL DFS. The Fantasy Alarm Playbook isn’t just about handing you a list of players and a lineup to use each week. It is designed to help you learn to be a better DFS player. It’s about teaching you the process used in selecting which players to scout and, eventually, which ones to use.

Therefore, we will begin each week with the Weekly NFL DFS Watch List which is designed to keep tabs on marquee names, chalk plays and, of course, the weekly bargains who may not see the same coverage and exposure. This piece will be continuously updated throughout the week, based on the most recent news and injuries which means you may see a name or two removed as we get closer to kick-off. You may also see a few late-week additions who pique our interest for some reason too, and by the end of the week, this Watch List will eventually become your Playbook. Again, it’s about teaching you the process.

Also remember, the DFS Watch List focuses on the Sunday Main Slate. We cover Thursday, Monday and Sunday Night Football via Showdown slate coverage.

Now let's get to work…

PLAYERS REMOVED (9/30): Josh Allen, QB BUF – concern over a heavy ground attack given the Texans ineptitude; caps the ceiling and even offers concern for cash games.

PLAYERS ADDED (9/30): Kirk Cousins, QB MIN

PLAYERS REMOVED (10/1): Julio Jones, WR TEN – declared as out

PLAYERS ADDED (10/1): Chuba Hubbard, RB CAR, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, WR TEN, Deebo Samuel, WR SF
