FanDuel Lineup for the PGA Championship
Despite already winning twice this PGA season, Justin Thomas wasn’t inspiring many prognosticators to shout his name very much recently. In fact, he was only owned by 14 percent of the players participating in four-day contests on FanDuel. That is likely to change after his resounding victory at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational this past weekend.
There were many birdies to be had at Firestone, and quite the mix of favorites and value picks cashed in for those who were able to strategize a way to fit them in their lineups.
Competitive Play at the WGC Bridgestone
The favorites put on a show this weekend in Akron. Thomas brought in the most points with his 21 birdies, but Dustin Johnson amassed 91.7 points in FanDuel four-day contests. Rory McIlroy, Tony Finau, and Jason Day all notched top-ten finishes as well.
At the end of play on Sunday, the leaderboard was mostly full of familiar names, though there were a few sleepers to shine through. We mentioned Anirban Lahiri as one who could provide an impact from that sixth spot in the lineup, and he did not disappoint. His -8 was good for sixth place, which is more than most can expect for someone available for $6800 on DraftKings.
Getting Ready for the Last Major of the Year
The best in the world will head to St Louis for the 100th PGA Championship held at Bellerive Country Club. Thomas not only won last week, but is also the current holder of the Wanamaker Trophy. Remarkably, he can be picked up on DraftKings for $9700. Johnson, McIlroy, and Jordan Spieth make up the top of the salary list, with Rickie Fowler, Tommy Fleetwood, and Brooks Koepka rounding out the upper tier.
There are an intriguing list of players to choose from in the middle section of salaries. Xander Schauffele and Matt Kuchar have put up great numbers all season, yet are still affordable options for those third and fourth picks. Thomas Pieters and Webb Simpson are also reliable players to be had in this price range. Both average around 60 points on FanDuel.
Diamonds in the Rough
There are too many tantalizing players teeing it up for this prestigious tournament. If you can’t resist stocking your lineup with the big guns, there is hope to finish out your roster with a hopeful option. Beau Hossler has five top tens this season, but only costs $6900 on DraftKings. Brendan Steele is another option for those seeking a real hidden value, as he’s available at $8700 on FanDuel. Their scoring potential could mean the difference between victory and coming up empty when play concludes on Sunday.
