DraftKings Week 4 Cash Game Breakdown
You may notice that there are multiple picks from the same team in this write-up. I'd never purposely aim to stack players from the same team in cash game lineups, but I also don't avoid them if they independently fit the profile of a strong play offering good value relative to their salary. While there is risk in buying into multiple players on one offense, there's also risk in bumping down to sub-optimal plays for the sole purpose of diversifying the offenses you have exposure to. Of course, if you want to go a different route, there's always our handy Lineup Generator and Floor Projections waiting in the wings to help you out.

QB Derek Carr $5,300 @ CHI
At $5,300, Carr is priced like a backup this week, which is perfect because my offseason research found that contrary to popular belief, inexpensive QBs on DraftKings have provided the best cash game value. Efficiency is very important to a QB's fantasy success, and the Bears have allowed a 70 percent completion rate and an 8:1 TD-to-interception ratio this season. Carr has taken a step forward this year in all his efficiency metrics -- his completion percentage is up five points from last year, his yards per attempt is up 2.6 yards, his TD rate is up 60 percent, and his interception rate has decreased from 2.0 percent to 1.1 percent.
