Every week, Pro Football Focus does projected roster percentages for FanDuel and DraftKings. It's a useful tool to see who will be popular for that slate. For Week 4, Tutu Atwell is expected to be in a lot of lineups on both sites, which makes sense. He's had three standout games to start the season with at least eight targets in each outing, and he has either 77 receiving yards or a touchdown in each contest, with 17 total receptions.
He's projected to have the third-highest roster percentage of any player on FanDuel (19.0 percent) and is No. 7 on DraftKings (14.1 percent). Atwell's cost is a factor since he's not overly expensive ($6,300 on FanDuel and $5,500 on DraftKings), and he has a great matchup against the Colts.
While I like Atwell, I'm going to pivot back to Puka Nacua this week instead. He's coming off his worst game of the season in Week 3 at Cincinnati with five catches for 72 yards on seven targets, and he's expected to be less popular in Week 4.
He's projected to be rostered in 7.6 percent of lineups on FanDuel and 8.7 percent of lineups on DraftKings. Nacua is more expensive than Atwell ($7,500 on FanDuel and $6,700 on DraftKings), but let's not forget how good Nacua was in the first two weeks of the season with 35 catches for 266 yards on 35 targets.
I'm expecting a bounce-back game for Nacua against the Colts, who have already allowed six receivers to score at least 13.0 PPR points and five to score at least 10.4 half-PPR points. Four receivers have scored touchdowns against Indianapolis this year.
Atwell and Nacua should both perform well this week. But if everyone is expected to use Atwell, you can be a little different by playing Nacua, who might have more upside based on what we've seen through two of three games this year.
Here are two DFS lineups for you to play on DraftKings and FanDuel for the Week 3 slate. On DraftKings, this is one of the lineups I'll be using in the $3.5M Fantasy Football Millionaire tournament. For FanDuel, here's one of my lineups for the $1.6M NFL Sunday Million tournament.
I hope by the time Monday gets here we're all celebrating in a big way. But, just remember, even if you only win a small amount, you're still adding to your bankroll for the season.
