Something to keep an eye on for ALL formats!

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.
Passing on the highest price player who went on to win with a guy who WD was the early death knell. Thankfully I didn’t have to pay much attention after 11 holes on Thursday!
The rest of the support staff didn’t fire and Fleetwood and Fisher guaranteed I’d be heading back to the sperm bank for another deposit this week!
The Copperhead Course should play similarly to what we saw last week and ball-strikers should flourish. The Riviera angle is definitely in play but the TifEagle greens will present a different challenge once the putting surface is found.
From my notes over time and each of the last three winners hovering around single digits, I’m leaning on guys who can find GIR and keep it out of the rough and tree line.
The weather this week should help the field as the wind won’t be as severe as years past but the new greens and lush rough will still keep par a very decent score.

My lineup this week:
Charles Howell, III ($9,400): His record at this event is excellent and his current form matches.
Bill Haas ($9,200): Proven Tour winner went close here last year losing in a playoff. He played great golf for 68 holes.
Gary Woodland ($8,900): I’ll lean on the former champ regaining the form that saw him finish T-2 at Riviera and T-5 at Pebble Beach.
Graham DeLaet ($8,400): He’s been close plenty of times because he can knock it tee-to-green. It’s not hard to see my strategy this week!
J.J. Spaun ($7,200): He should be overlooked in a crowded area but has played tough courses well in the last month.
Lucas Glover ($6,900): He’s third in GIR and enters on seven made cuts in a row.
One ping. One ping only.
Adam Hadwin ($6,800): Too much balance in his bag and he’s making cuts for fun. I like this price tag.
