Previewing the Dell Technologies Championship
The Northern Trust was a great start to the PGA Tour playoff season. While the early favorites all performed well in the first round of the FedExCup, it was mid-tier daily fantasy pick Bryson DeChambeau besting the packed field by an easy four strokes in route to victory. His 126.5 points on FanDuel was bolstered greatly by his -8 on Saturday.
Plenty of players scored well throughout DFS four-day contests. Of the players we recommended last week, Tony Finau proved to be a great value, as his second place finish included only one bogey all weekend. As one of the most consistent scorers in fantasy golf, Finau has paid dividends to those who have drafted him all season.
One surprise from the Northern Trust was a quartet of bargain basement players delivering dominant performances. Cameron Smith, Billy Horschel, Aaron Wise, and Ryan Palmer were on virtually no one’s radar but all managed to finish in the top five. Any one of them could be had for the cheapest price on both FanDuel and DraftKings.
While it’s hard to predict when players lingering around 100 in the world rankings will put together a solid four rounds, the help of proven research and analytics can help you mine a few diamonds like these from the rough.
Competition Tightens for Round Two of FedExCup
The field widdles down to under a hundred for the upcoming Dell Technologies Championship this coming weekend in Boston. Despite being the current points leader, DeChambeau is available for a reasonable $8700 on DraftKings. The usual suspects clutter the top of the salary list, with much of the early attention going to the defending champion Justin Thomas.
Lower down in that top tier, a DFS player can find Jordan Spieth, who regained some confidence with a third round 64 last weekend. Tommy Fleetwood and Hideki Matsuyama also represent good plays, as both have consistently put up big numbers week after week. By saving money on those top roster spots, one can take advantage of the big group of mid-tier players who could have a breakout tournament.
Finau is likely hungry to finally capture that second PGA tour victory after being so close all year long. At $8800 on DraftKings, he could be the steal of the weekend. Louis Oosthuizen is sitting right on the cut bubble and could be inspired to bring his A-game to avoid ending his season early. He didn’t appear to have any lingering back issues that sidelined him from the PGA Championship, so the former major champion could provide excellent value.
Sleeper Picks A-Plenty
Billy Horschel just might have the magic touch for the third straight week at a course that he finished second at in 2014. He’s ridiculously cheap at $8700 on FanDuel, but if he cracks a 100 fantasy points again, he won’t likely be as cheap in the coming weeks. Gary Woodland isn’t the most tantalizing of picks, but with three straight top-20 finishes at TPC Boston, he could provide some impact from that sixth roster spot.
