PGA DFS Picks – Open

Daily Fantasy Golf Picks, Open

And just like that we’re back to the links! It was a small break but I’m glad the PGA is already back underway.  I’ve been trying to think of how best to go about presenting DFS golf information and I think for now what I will do is give my core players each week.  I typically play a couple lineups in GPPs and stick to a core cash game/H2H lineup.  While I have posted complete lineups in the past, this isn’t a great idea for GPPs.  I may post some cash lineups going forward but for this week I’ll stick with the core group of players that will be in my lineups. As usual, pricing is from Draftkings.

This week’s key stats:

Driving Distance (DD)
Scrambling (Scr)
Par 4 Scoring (P4s)
Birdie or better (BoB)

Justin Thomas ($9200) – He finished the season playing excellent golf and for the price I love him this weekend.  His stats are great for the course being Top 40 in all of them, including finishing 6th in BoB%.  With the importance of birdies on Draftkings a player like Thomas always has the ability to score highly even if he doesn’t win.  That being said, I think he has a great chance to win and I think he finishes Top 10.

Will Wilcox ($7500) – Will was playing some great golf before bruising his knee late in the season.  He claims he’s 100% ready which is good to hear. Wilcox is 3rd in P4s and 17th in BoB, as well as 24th in scrambling.  He’s only 42nd in DD which is still solid.  He had three Top 10 finishes in four events before bruising his knee and I expect him to continue his great play to open the fall season.

Steven Bowditch ($8200) – Bowditch was the runner up his last year and I expect him to contend again.  His game fits this course, being 24th in DD, 3rd in SCr, and 26th in P4s. I wish is BoB% was higher but he finished 59th.  I will be disappointed if he finishes outside of the Top 20 this weekend.

Ollie Schniederjans ($6800) – I think Ollie is a steal at $6800 this week for GPP lineups.  He’s still an unknown but brought his name to the forefront with great play at the U.S. and British Open.  He’s a big hitter who can rack up the birdies.  He didn’t play enough to accrue any official stats so he may go under owned.  He had three straight top 25s until missing the cut at the odd scoring Barracuda Open.  For the money he’s a great tournament play to save you money (and play McIlroy).
