DraftKings has plenty of ways to join the action weekly in a salary-cap-format game. Gamers pick six players on a budget of $50,000 and hope they make the cut and go low. Each week I’ll list the players who I think have the most value and give examples of potential lineups.
Select six players who fit into the $50,000 salary cap maximum at DraftKings.com. Player values are established by DraftKings.
Jason Day took an early flight home as he and Dustin Johnson had the Tiger Woods show to deal with for two days.
Charles Howell III (T-2), Gary Woodland (T-20), J.B. Holmes (T-33) and Martin Laird (MDF; T-74) gave it a mighty run but not having the winner doesn’t help.
Also mentioned last week were Tony Finau (T-4) and Kyle Stanley (T-14) which reinforced the bombers angle at Torrey Pines South.
With no wind or rain the pros will take dead aim at the Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale. Huge greens will be inviting but those who find the proper levels will have the best chances to make birdie on the pure Bentgrass. Those who spray it off the tee better spray it deep. Those who aren’t long better be in the middle of the fairway and have excellent short game. I’m mixing big bombers with a steadying influence of guys who can save par and hole putts.
My lineup this week:
Interesting pricing this week but I can see why as there is plenty of “like” from five to 50. I’ve gone heavy for a shot at three premium players with some measured underdogs at the back end.
Hideki Matsuyama ($11,700): His record here speaks for itself. If you’re not sure what I mean, donate your money to charity instead of playing fantasy golf.
Jon Rahm ($9,700): Bet against him at your peril. He was in my Rotoworld column here in 2015 when he was a junior at Arizona State.
Ryan Moore ($8,600): T-3 last time out and keeps it par or better around here.
Kyle Stanley ($6,800): 2012 champ is in excellent nick and is quietly flying under the radar to the masses.
Jim Herman ($6,600): Another ball-striker that has been solidly humming along.
Zac Blair ($6,600): #RyanMooreLite will keep in the middle and handle the greens.
You’re welcome to mix-n-match if the guys above don’t float the boat.
Plenty to choose from but surely Justin Thomas can’t win three in a row! Brian Harman has never hit a top 10 here so he’ll be in the mix just like he was the last two weeks. I can’t really talk you out of C.T. Pan at that price either but I’d prefer William McGirt for $100 cheaper.
One ping. One ping only.
Tyrone Van Aswegen ($6,500): T-20 last week and T-17 last year. He shouldn’t be heavily owned at that price!
