Week 4 NFL DFS Preseason Breakdown

As always, a monster 16-game slate for the last preseason slate awaits us for the final week of the NFL preseason. Week 4 is somewhat similar to Week 1 in that it will be exclusively reserve players on the field. At this point, battles have been won and injuries have occurred creating some thin depth at certain positions. First and foremost we want to find out who is playing the entire game and go from there. Instead of a game-by-game breakdown, I’ll highlight individual players or position groups to focus on which will narrow our targets down a bit. Being that every team is playing Thursday night and every team has battles to play out, there are going to be a lot of targetable players, but we have to narrow that down because we can’t cover every base.


Joshua Dobbs (PIT) -- The Steelers aren’t saying how much Dobbs will play. However, common sense is a wonderful skill to possess. Dobbs didn’t play last week, meaning he is currently QB4. Dobbs is getting an extended look so I'm betting we see more Dobbs than Rudolph by a good margin.

Tyler Bray (CHI) -- According to Bears’ coach Matt Nagy, Bray will play the entire game on Thursday. It’s tough to ignore four quarters of volume. He has looked decent throughout the preseason and should be able to do some damage against Bills’ second and third units.

Tim Boyle (GB) -- With Brett Hundley on his way to Seattle and DeShone Kizer firmly entrenched as the QB2, Boyle projects to get at least three quarters of work. He’s completed two long touchdown passes. He’s flashed in the preseason with a few TD passes so he’s definitely serviceable with that much playing time.

Baker Mayfield (CLE) -- The Browns are gonna Browns. For some reason, Hue Jackson will play Mayfield for an entire half on Thursday. While that’s signifcantly less time than some other quarterbacks we’ll be able to roster, Mayfield has the talent to put up the best score on the slate in two quarters.

Kevin Hogan (WAS) -- Hogan will probably get four quarters with Alex Smith sitting and Colt McCoy nicked up. He threw two touchdowns last week so the ability is there. He’s a pretty cerebral signal caller which can't hurt.
