Previewing the BMW Championship
Bryson DeChambeau certainly was not ready to step into the shadows after his resounding victory at the Northern Trust. At this past weekend’s Dell Technologies Championship at the TPC Boston, the young phenom notched his second straight FedExCup win, besting over 200 of the PGA’s best golfers.
His affordable price tag on daily fantasy sites made him a popular pickup. He paid off in a big way, bringing in 126.5 points on FanDuel, sinking 23 birdies and and an eagle en route to the championship. Last week, we recommended looking at Jordan Spieth, Tommy Fleetwood, and Hideki Matsuyama as more affordable top tier options, and all put up a good amount of points to make them worth drafting.
Even our sleeper picks had great weekends. Louis Oosthuizen and Gary Woodland combined for over 160 points on FanDuel despite only taking up $18,600 in salary. Billy Horschel was forced to withdraw after nine holes with an illness, so he netted negative points on DraftKings.
DeChambeau Shoots Up the Salary List
The back to back wins obviously puts the 24 year-old in the company of Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, and the Justins as the top-priced talent for this weekend’s BMW Championship at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania. This third round of the FedExCup will feature the PGA’s 70 remaining players vying to be one of the 30 in next week’s Tour Championship, so there is hardly a bad choice at any price on DraftKings or FanDuel.
Francesco Molinari has the type of game that could bode well at the BMW, so his $10,800 salary on FanDuel seems quite reasonable. The Italian pro has shown the ability to come up big in the brightest spots, so he stands out as valuable option. Tony Finau continues to cost somewhere in the second tier week after week despite his 76.5 scoring average on DraftKings.
Great Value in Middle and Lower Tiers
Rafa Cabrera-Bello has been stellar at finding the green in regulation, which could be a big advantage in this weekend’s tightly contested BMW Championship. For a player averaging 70.5 fantasy points per contest, his $8300 price tag on DraftKings makes him a steal. Kyle Stanley is another affordable option that could put up big numbers in four-day contests. He’s been playing well as of late, and his talents lend themselves to Aronimink well.
If you couldn’t resist stocking up on the slew of big guns and their lofty price tags, fortunately there are a couple of deep sleeper options that could help you fill out that sixth spot. Two players, Chez Reavie and Andrew Landry are on the outside looking in, so both will have extra incentive to bring their best to Pennsylvania. They are dirt cheap at $7600 and $7000 respectively on FanDuel.
