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.
No winner so no good! Dustin Johnson was third but that was about it, sadly.
Having the players on the right side of the draw would have been the way forward as the entire top five played the same rotation of courses.
When the heavy hitters hit the top five you better have most of them!
The field is proper as is the course but like last week, the weather is not going to cooperate.
The late-early draw looks to be the way forward, but if they don’t even tee it on Friday, who knows.
I’d suggest a mix-and-match because three to five inches of rain in less than 24 hours could cause SERIOUS problems.
Buckle that belt and keep all hands and arms insight the cart at all times!
My lineup this week:
Dustin Johnson ($11,400): Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V. I figure the public will be riding Spieth, rightfully so, so I’ll take DJ again this week.
Sergio Garcia ($9,300): Plenty of value here especially those who don’t follow golf outside of the PGA Tour.
Charl Schwartzel ($8,100): Another value play who’s never MC here in the last four years and has a pair of top fives during that run.
Keegan Bradley ($7,500): Just inconsistent enough to drive off the masses after MC at WMPO and that’s music to my ears. The big rain might help him out on the greens.
Ryan Moore ($7,300): Excellent form over six months and on the track over the recent past gives him the nod.
Kyle Reifers ($6,400): T-8 and T-24 the last two years and his late WD last week should make him anonymous.
You’re welcome to mix-n-match if the guys above don’t float the boat.
Your top two-man combo is probably going to make it or break it this week. Target golf will help the big bombers as the course will stretch out when soaked.
Brendan Grace played a very long, wet Baltusrol into a top 4 and definitely has the class to surprise in his first go. At $7,300 he seems cheap.
West Coast vets Pat Perez and Brendan Steele make perfect sense as well as both have had plenty of looks here. Cameron Tringale doesn’t miss here either.
Wonder why Jim Furyk is on the cheap this week given his record (16 of 19 here).
One ping. One ping only.
J.B. Holmes ($7,100): Check his past results here and get back to me. His 68 to close at Pebble last week won’t chase me off either.
