Expert FanDuel Lineup for The Fort Worth Invitational
Despite weather conditions playing a factor throughout the tournament, tour rookie Aaron Wise secured his first PGA victory on Sunday at the Trinity Forest Golf Club. While the AT&T Byron Nelson didn’t sport the deepest group of players, the 21 year old fired a bogey-free 65 in the fourth round, besting the always solid Marc Leishman by three strokes.
Increased Interest in Trinity Forest
Much of the talk heading into the tournament last week revolved around how many of the PGA’s elite were leary of playing the lesser known location for this prestigious tournament. As one of the charter members at Trinity Forest, young PGA phenom Jordan Spieth was singing the praises of the Dallas track all week. Many other participants expressed their approval as well, which could see more top players attend in future years.
Overall, the daily fantasy scores were much better this week than over the last month or so. Wise and Leishman were able to pull off some enviable rounds, propelling their DraftKings scores in four-day contests into the 130 range. With birdie opportunities available like they were this past weekend, next year’s Byron Nelson could be loaded with talent.
A Mixture of Results
Early favorites Leishman, Adam Scott, and Jimmy Walker did well for themselves, as all three earned top ten finishes. Spieth may have ended up near the middle of the pack, but his ambassadorship was more prominent than his play at the AT&T. Only Sergio Garcia and Matt Kuchar didn’t measure up to their pre-tournament expectations, with both concluding play on Friday after missing the cut.
Of the hidden value recommendations, Kevin Na provided some punch to the back end of many lineups this weekend. His 16 under netted him 113 points on DraftKings despite cooling off Saturday and Sunday after a blistering start. Graeme McDowell and James Hahn weren’t the sleepers DFS players were looking for, as both missed the cut and provided little to no help in daily lineups.
Gearing Up for The Colonial
PGA big guns return to action this week in Texas for the Fort Worth Invitational. Four of the top six in the world will tee it up at Colonial Country Club, including 2016 winner Spieth. Joining him at the top of the salary list includes Jon Rahm, Justin Rose, and Rickie Fowler.
An exciting group sits in the second tier of salaries as well. Wise will look for back-to-back victories deep in the heart, while Kuchar hopes to right his ship after trouble at Trinity caused him to miss his first cut in quite some time. Last year’s champ Kevin Kisner isn’t given much credit to repeat, and can be drafted for $9800 on FanDuel. Familiar contributors to DFS lineups such as Xander Schauffele, Louis Oosthuizen, and Brian Harman are all available in this range as well. Zach Johnson could end up becoming the steal of the tournament, as the two-time Colonial winner is available for great value this week despite quietly putting together an impactful season in 2018.
With the deeper field, players such as Adam Hadwin, Kevin Na, and Nick Watney represent attractive options for drafting those fifth and sixth spots in your lineup.
