WGC-Mexico Championship DFS

03-01-17

There’s always more than one way to collect but usually it will take a player that comes from off the radar to save the day.

I hear you Woody!

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.

 

Last Week:

No winner so no good! A pair of T-14’s led the way but that’s almost bad enough not to mention.

The change from Poa to Bermuda and the addition of wind and water never makes that event an easy one to handicap.

Time to rebound!

 

This Week:

The elevation of Mexico City will create some headache but I’m guessing the tree-lined fairways might be more distracting.

The first time on this course for many, if not all, in a tournament setting should see the proper players rise to the top.

I’ve mixed in form, power and guys who can make birdies as those are my keys this week. Last week’s survival of the fittest should switch to a scoring fest.

Check my preview if you need more details!

 

My lineup this week:

 

Henrik Stenson ($10,300): At $2,200 cheaper than Dustin Johnson, this is a no-brainer in a salary-based game. Yes, I’m paying for premium players in this new format. Have you seen the last four winners on Tour?

Rickie Fowler ($9,900): I liked what I saw last week with the driver and the putter as he chalked up victory No. 4 on Tour.

Justin Rose ($9,600): His form is blistering and he has no problem figuring out brand new tracks on Tour.

Jimmy Walker ($7,700): He showed signs at Riviera with T-11 and even more last week at Honda with T-21. He let two bad holes in his last four ruin a very good finish. Oh, he loves Poa too.

Jhonattan Vegas ($6,600): Trending in the proper direction and closed last week with the low one of the day on Sunday, 64, for T-4.

Chris Wood ($6,600): Gave to get so I’ll ride on a dude who loves tree-lined tracks. His words, not mine!

 

Plan B:

Mix-n-match if the above don’t float your boat

 

With a field like this gamers know that most of these guys can turn it up on any week. I prefer those who are turnt as opposed to those who are hoping this is the week.

A brand new venue might be exactly what some of these guys are looking for to snap out of an early year funk.

I’d take a strong look at who played well at Torrey and Riviera and see if they fit your needs on this new track. Deeper trends can extend to Montreux and Crans Montana but that doesn’t guarantee anything!

 

Gut Shot

One ping. One ping only.

 

Alex Noren ($7,200): His start to 2017 hasn’t been up to his standard but this is a ridiculously low number. Low enough that I didn’t put him in my lineup because there has to be something fishy going on!

 

Good Luck!
