  • It’s time to start building NFL DFS lineups for week 4
  • OwnersBox $50K Sunday Smash contest is available to enter now
  • Read below for three running backs to target in NFL DFS contests

The NFL Week 4 is here and I’m going to give you some running backs to anchor your lineups. If you have been paying attention to fantasy numbers throughout the first few weeks, you would have noticed that we may be shifting away from the big point totals we’re used to running backs giving us and focusing on more receiver based builds, so finding two guys to anchor your lineups is very important. Here are 3 players to take in your OwnersBox NFL DFS lineups in Week 4.

These players will also be priority targets when playing the new Lightning Lineups game on OwnersBox. Lightning Lineups is a unique user-vs-house game where the player is presented with three lineups of three players each. If you don’t like the lineups presented to you, you can spin the wheel to generate new matchups. All you have to do is select the lineup you think will score the most fantasy points. You can increase your payout by adding more opponent lineups and earn up to 6x your money!

Dameon Pierce $4,900 vs Chargers

After head coach Lovie Smith came out and said they needed to focus on getting Pierce more touches, they absolute ran him into the ground in Week 3 and he provided everything we wanted. Pierce ran for 80 yards on 20 carries with a touchdown and two receptions for a cool 18.1 fantasy points. Pierce comes into this game with the Chargers against a beat up defense who let James Robinson run for the world against them last week.

The Chargers defense gives up 4.6 yards per carry and 102.7 rush yards per game, which leads them to a respectable 11th DVOA. Missing Joey Bosa is going to be tough on this Chargers front, and the sheer opportunities Pierce is going to get, makes him a play of the week for me.

Khalil Herbert $4,900 @ Giants

Khalil Herbert takes over the Bears backfield in Week 4 after an injury to David Montgomery rules him out of this weeks contest. Even with the Giants getting off to a 2-1 start, running backs against this defense have been a favorable matchup, and one we should be taking advantage of. Herbert made the most of his opportunities last season when he was given the backfield, and I expect to see the same from him this week.
The Giants run defense is one of the worst in the league. The have a DVOA that ranks them 28th against the run, while giving up 5.3 yards/rush, as well as 138.3 yards per game on the ground. Their opponents have ran the ball on 45.14% of the plays which is 25th in the NFL. No one has run the ball at a higher rate than the Bears at 66%, and they are rushing for 186.7 yards per game. In this spot, hammer in Khalil Herbert.

James Robinson $5,700 @ Eagles

NFL teams have been awfully scared to run the ball against the Philadelphia Eagles. The league is only rushing against their defense, 30.65% which is the 3rd least, but when teams decide to run the ball, they are extremely successful at 5.4 yards per rush. I think that James Robinson won’t be rostered a lot in the main contest due to public perception of the Eagles being a really good defense. This defense is good, but mainly against the pass. They have a pass DVOA that ranks 3rd in the NFL and their rush DVOA is 25th in the league.
Getting James Robinson involved will be key for this Jags offense, as he has been crucial to their good start, scoring in every game this season. Expect a good game once again from a healthy looking James Robinson, where they could play a physical brand of football on the road and make a statement.
