- 3 NFL DFS Wide Receiver options for Week 4 this Sunday
- Will Romeo Doubs continue to thrive in Green Bay?
- Read below to find out the best Wide Receiver picks for the 50K Sunday Smash contest
Welcome to Week 4 NFL DFS at OwnersBox! We will be looking to right the ship after last week’s high-priced WRs all struggled, with numerous expensive WR’s going full bust and tanking your lineups. We are going to try to avoid that this week with a few cheaper options that find themselves in good sports with high volume.
As the season continues and we continue to get more data and especially more injuries, there will be more and more unique sports to talk through at the WR position on a weekly basis, and this serves as a good example this week. Let’s dive right in and get into the plays.

DFS WR #1: Romeo Doubs – $4,500
We will start things off with Doubs here, coming in at a cheap $4,500 price tag. The opportunity that Doubs saw last week was extremely encouraging and warrants another look at this low price tag. After hauling in all eight of his targets last week, Doubs appears to have a serious shot at taking over as the WR1 in Green Bay.

The Patriots are not a good football team, certainly not the team of the past, so I’m not worried one bit about the matchup, as we just saw Lamar Jackson torch them for five touchdowns last week. Let’s take advantage of the industry lagging behind on the price tag here on Doubs and include him in your builds this weekend. We will not have the opportunity to play him at $4,500 for much longer, which is why he is a must-start NFL DFS wide receiver.
DFS WR #2: Josh Reynolds – $4,000
At the time of writing here on Friday morning, here is what we know about the Lions situation: RB D’Andre Swift appears to be questionable at best, missing practice both Wednesday and Thursday this week, nursing both ankle and shoulder injuries. Breakout star WR Amon-Ra St. Brown has also been held out of practice both days with an ankle injury and won’t play. WR2 DJ Chark was ALSO held out of practice Thursday, seemingly out of nowhere.
It really seems to me that all three of these guys are going to sit. Head Coach Dan Campbell already mentioned here that Swift may be held out through their bye in Week 6.
Josh Reynolds, T.J Hockenson, Frank Ragnow, Chris Board, Bobby Price among the injured players giving it a go today
Still out: Amon-Ra St. Brown, D’Andre Swift, Jonah Jackson, John Cominsky, Austin Seibert
Also: DJ Chark went from limited yesterday to out today

With all that being said, it opens up a whole lot of volume for Reynolds, almost by default, in the passing game. His $4,000 price tag is way too cheap for the potentially huge role he could walk into on Sunday. In the event St. Brown, Chark, and Swift sit on Sunday, load up on shares of Reynolds at his very fair price tag given his expected opportunity with this Lions team banged up.
Be sure to monitor this situation as we approach 1 PM Sunday.
DFS WR #3: Gabe Davis – $5,600 (Isaiah McKenzie, $4,600 if Davis OUT)
To cap things off, we have my favorite play of the entire week in Gabe Davis. I’m a huge Bills homer, so there might be a hint of a bias here, but nonetheless, the play is warranted. Coming off a flop in Week 3 against Miami, this is a great spot for Davis to bounce back. It’s not like he didn’t have the opportunity last week. He dropped a touchdown in the end zone and had an off week. It happens. Anyways, it’s right back to the well for me this week with Davis.
The Bills still have an explosive offense. The Bills will put up points, and throughout this season, Davis will be on the receiving end of many Josh Allen touchdowns. The issue here is that he has been heading in the WRONG direction all week at practice, but I think this is more precautionary than anything. Monitor his status up to Sunday, but I think he ends up playing and am writing this under that assumption as one of my top NFL DFS wide receivers to have.
In the event Davis sits, look at Isaiah McKenzie at $4,600, as he would thrust into a WR2 role and would be high up on my WR list this week. I wouldn’t say that he becomes a must play, but it’s pretty close. However, assuming Davis plays, I always like getting on guys after a down week when they have secure roles in high-powered offenses.
Davis fits that mold perfectly, and I’ll certainly be expecting a nice bounce back game in a now very important matchup with the Ravens on Sunday. Load up Gave Davis at low ownership after his bust game last week!
