Tank Williams runs through his "Ballers on a Budget" — focusing on a few players who have DFS value this week.
- What it do, baby? It's your boy T-Money with my week four ballers on a budget. Now, first let's start with Aaron Rodgers. He's $23. He's going against those New England Patriots. And let's just talk about this. Lamar Jackson gave the New England Patriots their invisible juice last week. He threw for 4 tubs, and he ran for 1. My man Lamar is elite.
Aaron Rodgers is still elite, just in a different way. And his pass catches are starting to come on like Romeo Dobbs. Allen Lazard is getting healthy. I really like this as a great spot for my man Aaron Rodgers at only $26. Could be a little sneaky blowup spot for him.
Now, at running back, I'm going with who? Austin Ekeler again. I'm going to just continue to talk this man up because he is the epitome of ball on a budget. This dude started off the season at $34. The coach refuses to give him the ball. And I guess you refuse to win games too because that's what's been happening to the Chargers, even though they've been banged-up as well.
You have the best matchup on the slate, damn near, against the Houston Texans because they give up the most rush yards in the league. Give this dude some carries. Give this dude some targets in the pass game so this dude can go ahead and fill our fantasy stock like he needs to and like how he's born to do. Let's rock out today with Austin Ekeler, $23.
Now at wide receiver, Noah Brown going against the Washington Commanders, $15. Now, a lot of people are going to talk about Michael Gallup. That's all good. But my man Noah Brown has been balling out. And he already told you, the Washington Commanders give up the second-most fantasy points in the league. They're not going to put Gallup out there and just run him like he's just been playing the entire season.
He's going to be on a pitch count, which means that, with all the focus on CeeDee Lamb, Noah Brown's going to continue to see those one-on-one matchups. He's going to continue to eat. Make sure you sign him in your DFS lineup for only $15.
And we're going to round this lineup out with my man TJ Hockenson, $18. Going against the Seattle Seahawks, Amon-Ra St. Brown is out. DeAndre Swift is out. DJ Chark is out. I mean, damn near the whole Lions' offense is out.
And you know what? It's about time for an Iowa tight end to ball out this year. I understand that George Kittle's been banged up. But come on now. Y'all claim that y'all tight end U. Show me something. This is your opportunity to go ahead and shine. And remember, the T is for the money, and the money is something that you will not have in your wallet if you do not get these guys in your lineup.
