QB Drew Brees, Saints ($7,600)
He started his career with the Chargers and this week Brees returns to San Diego for the first time. In his only two performances against the Bolts, Brees has notched a total of seven touchdowns and one INT. As for the San Diego secondary, they've allowed at least 320 passing yards to each of the first three opposing quarterbacks (Alex Smith, Blake Bortles, and Andrew Luck).
RB Jordan Howard, Bears ($3,700)
When a starting running back is set to miss some time, the backup is always cheap for that initial game. In this case, Jeremy Langford will miss 4-to-6 weeks with a sprained ankle. Now, Howard becomes the main back in Chicago. In a PPR format, Howard should shine. He caught four passes for 47 yards from Brian Hoyer in Week 3 against the Cowboys.

WR Terrelle Pryor Sr., Browns ($4,300)
Believe it or not, Pryor is the No. 1 receiver in Cleveland. He did it all for the Browns last week. Pryor led the Browns with eight receptions for 144 yards, had four carries for 21 yards (including a TD), and even threw for 35 yards. As for his opponent, Washington has allowed the third-most fantasy points to opposing receivers (45.1 ppg) in a PPR scoring system.

TE Coby Fleener, Saints ($3,200)
There you are, Coby! It took three weeks and a Willie Snead injury, but Fleener finally emerged as a quality option to Drew Brees in the Saints air attack. Fleener was targeted 11 times and caught seven passes for 109 yards and a TD. His Week 4 opponent, San Diego, currently allows an average 19.1 fantasy points per game (fourth-most).

D/ST Denver Broncos ($$3,700)
Sometimes, paying up for a DFS defense is the right call. Arizona tortured Jameis Winston in Week 2. He threw four interceptions in a 40-7 loss. The Denver defense hasn't allowed more than 20 points since Week 15 of last season. Also, opposing QBs haven't surpassed 206 passing yards against the Broncos yet this year.
