Exciting Weekend Ahead as the FedExCup Playoffs Begin
At the Wyndham Championship this weekend in Greensboro, North Carolina, some players were tuning up for the playoffs, many were teeing it up one last time for the season, while others were trying to play themselves into a spot in the FedExCup.
Brandt Snedeker dazzled the fans in attendance at Sedgefield Country Club all weekend, but his opening round 59 won the hearts of all the daily fantasy players who drafted them into a lineup. With several of the golfers accompanying him on the leaderboard playing cautiously to avoid flirting with the playoff cut, Snedeker was able to breeze to victory, posting a whopping 21-under-par.
Bubble Player Comes Up Big
Last week we mentioned Harris English as an intriguing sleeper option. Sitting just on the outside of the top 125, a big weekend in the final regular season tournament would secure him a spot. He did not disappoint, as his 11th place finish helped catapult English into the postseason. Sergio Garcia and David Hearn also had a chance to play their way in, but both fell short in the pursuit.
Navigating Through the Elite Field at the Northern Trust
Now that the FedExCup Playoffs have arrived, DFS players will have an abundance of talent to choose from. The downside to prestigious tournaments though is that nearly any of the 125 participants could pull off the win at the Northern Trust in Paramus, New Jersey. But thankfully, those who want to dedicate the $12000 plus for a favorite such as Dustin Johnson or Brooks Koepka will have an assortment of quality players available for a bargain.
Ridgewood Country Club has been kind to several players available in the second tier. All year we’ve talked about how Zach Johnson, Tony Finau, and Rafael Cabrera-Bello can provide a lineup quite a bit of punch without cleaning out your salary allowance. They can all still be had in the $8000 range on DraftKings despite having as good a chance as any to take home the victory.
For those looking for any gems to round out their lineup, English could be that option if he can ride the wave of momentum from last week. At $7300 on FanDuel, he stands out amongst the third tier options. Another hopeful longshot is Kevin Streelman, who has done well in the tournament in years past.
