Welcome to the NFL Week 4 DFS Watch List. We are riding some really nice momentum here this season and while no one for the Fantasy Alarm #FAmily took down the million-dollar prize anywhere, a lot of you took home some pretty nice cash prizes. Now, as much as I love that, I also know that some of you did not cash and as we head into Week 4, there is some frustration building. It is my goal to take that frustration away. Every slate is different and each one has its own complications, but we should be able to help get you all over the cash line with consistency. Maybe you're trying to jam in too many top-priced guys. You may be able to get Justin Jefferson and Travis Kelce, but once you also try to jam in a Patrick Mahomes or a Christian McCaffrey, it gets a little convoluted, especially for cash games. Once you try to jam in too many stars, you are forced into some really low-end bargains and there are only so many guys like Tank Dell or Adam Thielen who hit. Just ask those who tried to use a deep-cut like Chase Claypool. Or maybe it's something as simple as contest selection. Whatever the case may be, we'll figure it out. I've been speaking to a few of you recently, whether it's through email or Discord and I am very confident that we'll get you back on-track.
Not really a surprise, given the levels of success we are hitting early on in the season, but again, I've seen a lot of new screen names in Discord and I see a ton of new sign-ups for the All-Pro package, so before we fully dive in to the NFL DFS Week 4 Watch List, please allow me to welcome all of the new members of the Fantasy Alarm #FAmily. There are a lot of you and we thank you for joining. Now it's up to us to help you cash consistently on your NFL DFS action and we are psyched to make that happen. Since you are new to the Watch List, allow me to share some thoughts real quick:
“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 Sunday 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.
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
First and foremost, congratulations to all of you who sent me screenshots of your winning lineups. Nothing makes me smile more than when I see the #FAmily win and while you might get a different vibe off our competitors, it means more to me to see all of you win than it does for me to cash on my own. I mean that. I work the crazy hours I work for you. Not for me. My salary doesn't change no matter how many hours I put in. I do this for all of you which is why I get so hyped over your screenshots and when the Example Lineups which you should be using as a guideline, cash as well. All of the cash lineups offered to you this past week cashed in 50/50s and we had one FD lineup at 190 and we also had a DK GPP example that hit 211. Would I have preferred higher scores and bigger cash payouts? Of course, but it's only Week 4 and we've been cruising at high speeds. Now as for the optimal lineups…
Mind-blowing totals, right? Feels like we've got a great process going and it's just a short matter of time before one of us #FAmily members hits the big one!
All set? Feeling good? Then let's take all of this momentum and hit big in Week 4!
