DraftKings Week 4 Best Ball Rankings

Top 250 Best Ball Rankings for Week 4 contests on Draftkings

DraftKings just launched a Week 4 Best Ball GPP contest called the "NFL $100K Week 4 Special". It is a $22 entry with 150 lineups max and it has a top prize of $50,000. The contest goes live on Thursday, October 1st before the kickoff of the Denver vs New York Jets game.

The contest has a total of 5,184 entries available with just over 1,000 already spoken for early Wednesday morning. If you are not familiar with how Best Ball works it is an easy game to learn. On Draftkings you draft 20 players in 12-man leagues (a total of 240 players will be drafted by all 12 teams). After the draft is over you never have to worry about setting a weekly lineup or claiming players on the waiver wire. How it works is that your top-scoring 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, and 1Flex (RB/WR/TE) will automatically start for you each week.

I put together my Top 250 player Rankings which can be found below or also in this google doc.

***If you are looking for other Best Ball formats to draft on for in-season, both Yahoo and FanDuel currently have options as well. Yahoo has contests that will start in Week 5 and FanDuel has contests that will start in Week 4. These rankings can also be used for both of those formats and I will have them adjusted each week to help give you the best drafting experience possible.***
