    Optimal Daily Fantasy Week 4

    Last Updated: 8/19/2014 10:04 PM ET
    New for the 2013 football season, we will be providing a significant amount of weekly daily fantasy content for the NFL, including dollars-per-fantasy-point rankings for every player (both FanDuel and DraftDay), an optimized lineup for public FanDuel and DraftDay leagues and in-depth analysis and strategy advice from Daily Fantasy expert (and poker player and quantitative public opinion researcher) Brian Harnisch. Below, Brian provides his weekly column, which will include optimized lineups, on Friday mornings throughout the NFL season.

    Week 3 didn’t go as well as it could have but it wasn’t a complete loss. I entered a huge variety of lineups on DraftDay and managed to make it out alive with only a small loss, whereas I again got beat up on FanDuel playing a lot of lineups with Lynch, Roberts, and Myers. While playing the Seattle defense and Lynch did make watching the game fairly enjoyable, anyone using Lynch in their optimized lineups felt the pain of Lynch getting stopped literally inches from the goal line… twice. While that hurt and could be blamed for a number of losses in 50/50 and double-up formats, it’s hard not to look at Kaepernick’s abysmal performance and wonder what could have been (sweet 4 points, bro). After last night’s TNF performance it looks like this could have just been a glitch as he found his rhythm with Vernon Davis back, but I will be cautious playing him moving forward until I see some consistency.

    Taking a quick look ahead to Week 5, DraftDay has invited me to be one of 16 experts in their second Expert Challenge of the season. I hadn’t played any bracket format contests prior to this year, but I am really enjoying them so far. The only way to get into the Week 5 Expert Challenge is to qualify THIS WEEK, so make sure you enter a qualifier and give yourself a shot at a piece of the $1,500 prize pool and the chance to play against ME (ok but seriously you could get to play and beat Kay Adams, Jenn Sterger, Alexandria Schlereth, and a bunch of other fantasy experts). Make sure you get signed up for a qualifier in Week 4; it’s the only way in. 

    Listed below are our optimized lineups for Week 4 for both FanDuel and DraftDay standard formats. Optimized lineups for DraftDay are presented for both RB and WR flex roster spots. As I point out every week, these lineups represent the mathematically ideal combination of players that maximize projected fantasy points while staying under salary cap (utilizing PredictionMachine.com’s Week 4 fantasy projections). In my experience, these optimized lineups perform best in 50/50 or double-up type formats. At the very bottom of this article you will find a list of all players with their projected values for both FanDuel and DraftDay along with respective salaries. I always preach diversification in lineups, and if you see a lineup that may be too stacked for one team (see DraftDay’s WR Flex lineup below) make sure to consult this list for players in the same salary range that you might be able to swap out while staying under cap. When building your own lineups a great place to start is with some high value players identified in the Week 4 projections, which will free up cap space on your roster to play the studs you want.

    A persistent theme across all optimized lineups, for both websites, is the inclusion of the top priced Manning ($9,900 on FanDuel, $20,000 on DraftDay). Even with the steep price tag Manning proves to be a significant value play and a nice spot to build a roster around; he is PredictionMachine.com highest projected player for week 4 (27pts on FanDuel, 34pts on DraftDay).  After 50,000 simulations of every game this weekend, the Predictalator finds that on average Denver puts up a huge 35.4pts. That means that we not only find Manning putting up a lot of points, but spreading that wealth around between Thomas, Welker, and Decker like he did on MNF against the Raiders. In the DraftDay WR Flex lineup above you will see that the mathematically optimized team actually includes all of these players. While I wanted to preserve and present the actual optimized lineup as presented above you might want to diversify your lineup a little bit, even though a big Denver stack might provide you with a little entertainment. Below you will find three alternative lineups that only allow Manning and one of these three receivers, but it’s hard for me not to go with the Manning/Demaryius lineup. If you are looking to build a lineup around a Broncos WR, Decker provides the most value on DraftDay (15.5pts, $631/pt) while Demaryius does on FanDuel (17pts, $493/pt).

    Other things to point out in the optimized lineups: Jamaal Charles appears in the DraftDay RB Flex lineup, as well as some of the additional lineups below. While we’re high on Charles this week after coming of a great performance against Philadelphia we want you to recognize that he is a high risk play and is not currently playing at 100%. He is an expensive player, so if you would like to swap in another back you should be able to stay under cap playing anyone except Adrian Peterson, who costs a bit more on both sites. You will see again that we find a lot of value in both Joique Bell and Bilal Powell. For Bell one might be concerned with the impact of Bush’s return on Bell’s performance, but with Bush being less than 100%, Broyles less than 100%, Nate “The Pizza Man” Burleson out indefinitely, along with Tillman and Melton injuries, we still see Bell getting a lot of work in both the passing game and goal line carries. Short version: Don’t worry about Bush returning. For Powell, Ivory again missed practice on Thursday with a hamstring issue; Powell should see a significant amount of work this week and you should feel ok rostering him as he is our highest value back on FanDuel (15pts, $309/pt) and second on DraftDay (16.8pts, $572/pt).

    Just For Kicks: Dan Bailey is our highest projected kicker for week 4 at 9.7pts. He is decently priced on both sites and you have a ton of options if you would like to rotate a handful of kickers throughout your lineups and reduce some of your kicker-induced variance.

    As always, feel free to send me questions on twitter @brian_harnisch and I’ll do my best to get back to you before kickoff. 

    Update
    Projections and optimized lineups have been updated to account for current injury reports, including Miles Austin out. Austin was originally included in our DraftDay RB Flex Optimized lineup. A new optimized lineup for this format has been added immediately following the article, as well as re-optimized lineups for both FanDuel's $60k standard format and DraftDays WR Flex lineup. While Austin was not included in these other lineups, his absence gives Jason Witten a roughly 3pt boost which results in incorporation into these optimized lineups. The original optimized continue to be great lineups, but also consider these alternative lineups that incorporate Witten.
