Expert FanDuel Lineup for The Memorial
Recapping Fort Worth and Preparing You for Thursday
As one of the tournament favorites prior to teeing off Thursday at The Fort Worth Invitational, no one was shocked to see Justin Rose’s name on the leaderboard all week. Rose certainly didn’t figure his cushy, four-stroke lead heading into Sunday to be in jeopardy, but it ended up taking a flawless round of 64 to hold off the hard charging Brooks Koepka and Kevin Na. His 20 under par was the second lowest finish in tournament history.
Rose and Koepka gave daily fantasy players some excitement tracking their scores Sunday, but it was the sleeper pick Na, and his nine under par 61 that shifted a few four-day contests in the final hours. Na had a great week overall, as he also shot 62 on Thursday. His 116 points on DraftKings was well worth the $7800 price tag.
Predictable Scoring All Weekend
Other than Na, there were no real surprises in Texas this weekend, as most players performed to their level of expectation. Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth, and Jon Rahm all fared decently, with Rahm cracking the top five. Second tier players such as Kevin Kisner, Matt Kuchar, and Louis Oosthuizen all managed to keep playing over the weekend. Oosthuizen came the closest to Rose, finishing at ten under.
Zach Johnson, a two-time winner at Colonial Country Club, was not the sleeper everyone hoped for, offering next to nothing in fantasy points after missing the cut. Nick Watney performed even worse, and Adam Hadwin was a lukewarm pick, finishing the tournament outside the top 50.
Big Guns Return for the Memorial Tournament
The best players in the world will convene in Dublin, Ohio for the prestigious Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village this weekend. While Rose has some great momentum, Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas join him as the chalk picks on FanDuel and DraftKings. It will be difficult for DFS players to wedge two of these players into a six-man lineup, but the deep talent pool will allow you to pick up a heavy hitter for less money than they would normally cost in other weeks.
Such players benefitting from a cheaper salary this week include, Fowler, Hideki Matsuyama, Tiger Woods, and Marc Leishman. Each can be picked up in the $9000 range on DraftKings. It should not be discounted that Woods has won here five times.
When scouring the draft boards for hidden values, old reliable Phil Mickelson, DFS mainstay Tony Finau, and Oosthuizen can all be had for several hundred dollars less on FanDuel than they traditionally cost. Last year’s winner Jason Dufner, Luke List, and Joaquin Niemann could provide some impact from that tricky sixth roster spot.
