Week 4 DFS Sleepers: Wide Receivers With Low Salaries

Isaiah McKenzie leads the group of under-priced DFS wide receivers for Week 4.

The best value wide receivers in Week 3 were Mack Hollins (8/158/1), Romeo Doubs (8/73/1), Isaiah McKenzie (7/76/1), and DeVante Parker (5/156). Unfortunately, rostering low-value talent requires top-tier running backs or wide receivers to post impact outings to win. On the other side of the DFS coin, each one of these wideouts with big games last week created salary cap relief.

Week 4 Positional Rankings: QB I RB I WR I TE I DST I K I Flex

Isaiah McKenzie, Buffalo Bills (DraftKings – $5,100/FanDuel – $5,900)

Two-game winning streaks are an interesting concept to think about in daily games. The theory is based on a trending player having follow-through the next week after ranking higher than expected on the stat sheet. McKenzie had a minimal role over the first two weeks (2/19/1 and 2/37 on six targets) while drawing WR3 snaps for the Bills. He brings a possession-type skill set, but his snap count comes in at 47 percent over the first three weeks. With Gabe Davis still battling an ankle issue, McKenzie’s targets may be better than expected against a struggling Ravens secondary.

Chris Olave, New Orleans Saints (DraftKings – $5,500/FanDuel – $6,400)

The Saints tried to get Olave the ball in Week 2 (13 targets) on many deep passes, but he finished with only five catches for 80 yards. Last week, Jarvis Landry and Michael Thomas left the games with injuries, leading to Olave delivering an excellent showing in Carolina (9/147 on 13 targets). He already has four catches of 20-plus yards, with two of those plays gaining more than 40 yards. The Vikings allowed more than 200 receiving yards to wideouts in each of their last two matchups (16/232/1 and 16/219). Quarterbacks are averaging 7.8 yards per pass attempt. Thomas has already been ruled out for Sunday's game, so if New Orleans falls behind, Olave has an excellent chance of leading the team in targets in Week 4, inviting his first NFL score.

Robert Woods, Tennessee Titans (DraftKings – $5,200/FanDuel – $5,800)

The Titans have eased Woods into action over the first three weeks after suffering a torn ACL in 2021. He has been on the field for 69.8 percent of their plays. Tennessee looked his way only seven times over the first two games (1/13 and 4/39). Last week, Woods caught only four of his nine targets but gained 85 yards. Indianapolis played well vs. wide receivers over the first three contests (12/139, 12/134/2, and 10/139). If Tennessee falls behind, Woods will be much more active. Last year, Ryan Tannehill had six touchdown passes in his two matchups against the Colts.
