Best FanDuel/DraftKings lineup advice for NFL Week 4's Monday Night Football

MVP QB Derek Carr - $16,000 (FanDuel)/$16,200 (DraftKings)

Derek Carr continues to play his best in the NFL after posting over 22 fantasy points against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3. He has at least 380 passing yards in each of his three games and has two TDs in each game as well. Carr has only thrown two picks. He's projected to have around 20 fantasy points against the Chargers with 280 yards and a TD. It should be a high-scoring game on Monday night.

TE Darren Waller - $13,000 (FanDuel)/$9,200 (DraftKings)

With Derek Carr as your MVP, it would be smart to add one of his top targets in Darren Waller. His fantasy value has been impacted with Carr spreading the ball around so much, but the Chargers have been top-10 against the pass. Carr will have to focus more on his top targets. Waller had over 100 yards in Week 1 and should have at least over 10 fantasy points this week.

TE Jared Cook - $7,500 (FanDuel)/$4,400 (DraftKings)

Los Angeles Chargers Mandatory Minicamp

The 34-year-old TE has good touchdown upside each week and could have his best game of the season on Monday. The Chargers have a strong offense with QB Justin Herbert and Cook still finds a way to be explosive at times. When it comes down to redzone situations, Cook is often targeted.

WR Mike Williams - $14,000 (FanDuel), $10,200 (DraftKings)

Mike Williams was the top-scoring fantasy WR in Week 3 with just under 30 fantasy points, 122 yards and two TDs. He's scored in every game so far this season and should continue the trend in Week 4. He likely won't have as big of a game as he did last week, but he should remain heavily used in the passing game.

K Daniel Carlson - $9,500 (FanDuel)/$3,800 (DraftKings)

Daniel Carlson is the better of the two kickers playing in the game. He has over 10 fantasy points in every game this season and has been perfect on his field goals and missed just one extra point attempt. In a high-scoring game, he will have a good day.

WR Hunter Renfrow - $5,800 (DraftKings)

Since DraftKings has an extra player compared to FanDuel, go ahead and draft another target for Carr. Slot receiver Hunter Renfrow has had at least five catches in three games this season and could end up with another game with 70+ yards.

Total Budgets: $60,000 of $60,000 FanDuel, $49,600 of $50,000 DraftKings
