2018 Expert Masters Picks
Early Insight Into the 2018 Masters Championship
With The Masters just a few weeks away, DK Legends wants its members ready to cash in when the green jacket is awarded. For the next few weeks, we’ll take a more in-depth look at who can help round out a championship lineup. This week, we’ll breakdown the past winners likely to tee it up in Augusta.
Former Greats Ready to Turn Back the Clock in Augusta
Perhaps more than anywhere, Augusta National is kind to its former winners. But just how valuable will some of the previous champs be for you in FanDuel and DraftKings tournaments?
Champions Tour players such as Larry Mize, Jose Maria Olazabal, Sandy Lyle, and Ian Woosnam will enjoy providing the nostalgia for their fans, but some of the senior contestants have other ideas. Two-time Masters champ Bernard Langer never loses his feel for the PGA’s first major, as he finished eighth in 2014. Fred Couples refuses to let anyone wear the green jacket without feeling a little heat from the 1992 winner. Either can be had for ridiculously cheap.
Early Favorites Include Several Former Winners
The PGA world has been abuzz for several weeks now with Tiger Woods resurfacing among the tour’s elite. On Friday of last week, oddsmakers were declaring him the favorite to receive his fifth green jacket. Phil Mickelson has found his groove once again, coming off a win a few weeks back in Mexico City and never seems to disappoint the Masters crowds. Each are top tier salary players in DFS four-day contests in the early going. With both playing so well, they’ll likely remain expensive.
2015 champ Jordan Spieth is perennially a costly pickup for any lineup, but he could be due for another huge stretch of dominance at any moment. Defending champ Sergio Garcia might certainly be a great pickup, as he’s currently available for $8600 on DraftKings. Bubba Watson has positioned himself to make a run at a third title after notching a victory during the West Coast Swing. He also sits in the second tier of salaries and could represent a steal with how he is able to tear up that course when his game is right.
Under the Radar Options
Adam Scott makes for an intriguing option at $8000 on DraftKings, with four top tens including his win at Augusta in the last decade. Charl Schwartzel could be a candidate for causing some weekend drama on the leaderboard, though this sleeper doesn’t have a lot of traction with his play as of late. Zach Johnson hasn’t had the best luck in recent years at The Masters, be he continues to be a solid daily fantasy option for those looking for an inexpensive player with the potential to go on a birdie binge.
Enjoying a Nice Two Day Trip to Georgia
Some of the former green jacket winners won’t play a factor in daily fantasy tournaments. The list includes likely attendees Mike Weir, Angel Cabrera, Danny Willett, Vijay Singh, Mark O’Meara, and Trevor Immelman. While each bested this golf course in their day, their golf games haven’t provided any punch to DFS lineups in some time, and can all be found at the bottom of the salary list.
