Welcome to the DFS Playbook for NFL Week 4!

Last week was certainly an interesting one, wasn't it? We saw a number of lowers-priced running back emerge as options late in the week, but save for Giovani Bernard , very few actually delivered. Corey Clement and Latavius Murray served up dud performances and those who invested heavily got burned. Meanwhile, it was the week of all weeks for the low-cost wide receivers as Calvin Ridley , Tyler Boyd , Albert Wilson , Jakeem Grant and Geronimo Allison , all of whom paid serious dividends. In looking at the pricing this week, it seems to be pointing towards the same with the wideouts while the cheaper running backs have fewer enticing options. There are some and we'll maneuver them into our lineups, but it looks like we're seeking out the bargain wideouts again and, for the most part, paying up for our running backs.

By the way....as an added treat this week, you're going to get a DFS Dart Board article where we highlight plays under $5K on Draft Kings and under $6K on FanDuel you may want to use for some salary savings. It expands the suggested player pool of the Playbook enough to give you added flexibility with your lineups, but not so much that it becomes too overwhelming. Look for it in the evening Saturday and check back for last-minute changes based on the news Sunday morning.

Here's what we're looking at for Week 4:
