2018 Masters Favorites

Top Contenders to Win Their First Green Jacket

Every aspiring golf professional dreams of walking up the 18th fairway on Sunday at Augusta atop the leaderboard. While Tiger, Phil, and Bubba are clogging up the pre-Masters headlines, there is a strong group of the PGA elite that are looking to break through and win the coveted green jacket for the first time.

In part two of DK Legends’ Master’s preview, we’ll discuss which of the non-winners might provide the biggest impact to your Daily Fantasy Golf lineups on FanDuel or DraftKings during the Masters Championship.

Plenty of Impact Players Ready to Tame Augusta National

Of the top ten players in the Official World Golf rankings, only Jordan Spieth and Sergio Garcia have collected green jackets. In fact, the top three, consisting of Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, and Jon Rahm are looking for their first victory at the storied course. All are early Vegas favorites to claim the major championship and will be costly to start in any DFS contest format.

Rory Mcilroy represents the likeliest  of those without a victory to win the 2018 Masters Championship. With his current game rounding into midseason form and four consecutive top 10 finishes at Augusta, this could be the year he finally captures the title in all four major tournaments.

Other dominant players who could break through for victory next weekend include Rickie Fowler, Hideki Matsuyama, and Jason Day. Day has finished second and third at the Masters in recent years, while Matsuyama has found himself near the top of the leaderboard over the last three years. Fowler hasn’t experienced great success here, but his consistent play and ball-striking ability gives him as great a chance as any leading into this Thursday.

A Few Valuable Sleeper Options

The prestige of PGA’s first major of the year will result in a myriad of expensive players to start in DFS contests, causing the price to drop for many worthy golfers. Solid fantasy golfers such as Alexander Noren, Henrik Stenson, and Matt Kuchar can be had on DraftKings for second tier prices. Justin Rose and Paul Casey will cost a bit more, but can help round out a competitive lineup.

Daniel Berger, Tony Finau, and Rafael Cabrera-Bello could provide great impact as third tier starters for your squad. Finau will compete at Augusta for the first time, while Berger and Cabrera-Bello will take their third crack at victory. Their limited history could scare off some daily fantasy players, but each of their ability to produce birdies could swing results in your favor come Sunday.
