Primetime DFS Slate Breakdown: Week 4

Our fourth primetime slate brings us two games that both opened with an over under above 50 points and each team has an implied team total of at least 24 points. Baltimore and Pittsburgh are first and third, respectively, in pace of play through two games while Denver ranks 11th and Kansas City is 29th. Much like the Rams game a few days back, we should see some high scoring affairs in both of these games so let's get to breaking them down.

Passing Games


Joe Flacco ($7,500 FD/$5,400 DK) and company have an implied team total of 24 points and are three-point road underdogs vs the Steelers who have allowed an average of 29 points over their last eight games. The Steelers tank 27th and 15th in aFPA to quarterbacks and wide receivers, respectively. While Micheal Crabtree ($6,400 FD/$5,200 DK) has commanded a few more targets than John Brown ($6,200 FD/$5,900 DK), Brown is tied for eighth in the league with a 38 percent market share team'ss teams air yards and has three targets coming from within the 10-yard line. Willie Snead ($5,300 FD/$3,900 DK) has 19 targets on the young season but should only be considered in large field tournaments as leverage against the field. The Steelers gave up 200+ yards and 2 touchdowns to both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin last week and 190 yards and 1 touchdown to Tyreek Hill and Watkins the week prior so a full Baltimore stack is well within play here. It is worth pointing out that all three of Baltimore's tight ends are near minimum price on both sites, but you truly are playing bingo with them as they all split work in the red zone, run roughly the same amount of routes, and are targeted evenly.
