AFL Week 4 Preview

It’s hard to believe, but we are already into Week 4 of the Arena Football League season. The season is going relatively as planned — the stars are still the stars and Albany and Washington continue to be the class of the league. There have been some surprises though, so let’s take a look at the state of the AFL position by position and maybe uncover another diamond in the rough to lead your DraftKings lineup to victory.

Quarterback 

  1. Arvell Nelson ($11,000) WAS- Most expensive play of the week but well worth the money in a shootout. Philadelphia allows 8.8 yards per attempt and 16 TDs so far. Nelson is the only dual threat QB (12 passing/5 rushing TDs) in the league. Floor: 30 Ceiling: 50 Cash/GPP
  2. Tommy Grady ($9,800) ALB– 16 TD passes on the season along with a 31 point per game average. Reigning League MVP hasn’t missed a beat and it sure helps to have the deepest WR core in the league. Floor: 30 Ceiling: 45 Cash/Gpp
  3. Dan Raudabaugh ($8,400) PHL- Coming off 300 yard, 6 TD performance. Perfect set up for a shootout with Nelson and Washington. Floor: 30 Ceiling: 45. Cash/Gpp
  4. Shane Boyd ($7,800) BAL- Highest scoring QB last week gets an expansion team to pick on. Solid stats. Great value. Floor: 25 Ceiling: 40 Cash/Gpp
  5. Randy Hippeard ($8,000) AC
  6. Grant Russell ($7,200) CLB

Wide Receiver 

  1. Malachi Jones ($8,200) ALB- Suspended earlier in week due to a NFL try out with Tennessee. Fourth most expensive receiver but averaging at least 5 points more than any other WR in league. Safest receiver in the league. Gets it done every week. Cash/Gpp
  2. Darius Prince ($9,200) PHL- Highest WR salary on the board but 25/201/6 line for the speedy receiver so far this season. Slated for a shootout with Nelson and Washington – the Valor have given up an AFL best 14 touchdowns and 8.4 yards per attempt. Need to have shares. Cash/Gpp
  3. Jared Dangerfield ($6,200) WAS- Most consistent piece of the Valor offense (and that includes the popular Epps). Twenty six receptions for a fantasy average of 18.7 points per game. Has only one TD on the year. Monster game on the horizon if he can start finding the end zone. Safe play. Cash
  4. Lamark Brown ($6,400) AC- Clear go to guy in the AC. Caught 6 of the teams 10 touchdowns. Very safe play. Cash/GPP
  5. Joe Hills ($8,600) BAL- Price has finally dropped but the guy just keeps on finding the end zone. 95 consecutive games. Shane Boyd will make sure that his stud receiver makes it to 96. Gpp
  6. Lonnie Outlaw ($7,400) PHL- Last weekend was the Coming Out Party for the 6’7” receiver. Touchdown catches of 38, 39 and 2 yards woke up the league and let everyone know that he’s here to stay. Cash/Gpp
  7. Dezmon Epps ($8,800) WAS– Straight up Gpp play. Hard to hit value but proven to be capable of monster games like the 4 touchdown week 1 affair. Game breaking speed. GPP
  8. Kendrick Ings ($4,400) AC- Under priced and under performing. Leads team in targets and is in his 3rd season as Hippeard’s safety blanket. Could be very sneaky inexpensive value play. Gpp
  9. Jenson Stoshak ($5,600) CLB- Columbus is playing their home opener and Stoshak (at least 1 TD every game this season) is ready for his big intro. Cash/Gpp
  10. Fabian Guerra ($7,400) CLB- Back to top of the depth chart with Morgan and Amos both out. Low owned. Gpp
  11. Aaron Wascha ($7,600) PHL- Looking for a bounce back from last weeks 4/74/0. Popular player. Leaves it on the field. Expect to be back to 25 points or more this week. Gpp
