Recapping the Wells Fargo Championship and Previewing The Players Championship

By Mike Moore - 6 years ago in Entertainment

Recapping the Wells Fargo Championship and Previewing The Players Championship

With golf’s unofficial fifth major on the horizon, many of the PGA’s elite competed in the Wells Fargo Championship this past weekend as a tune-up. They play at Quail Hollow did not disappoint daily fantasy players, as there were a good mix of favorites and sleepers having big weekends.

In the end, early tournament favorite Jason Day held off Nick Watney and Aaron Wise for a two-stroke victory at the North Carolina track. While a chalk pick brought home the trophy, there were a few players like Watney who found success after having mediocre starts to the season.

DK Legends Picks Perform Well

If you started any of the recommended players from last week’s article, chances are you faired well in your contest. Though Day stood out from the group of early favorites, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, and Rickie Fowler all placed inside the top 25. Defending champ Brian Harman might have joined this group as well, but a disastrous ten over on Sunday caused his fantasy score to plummet.

Of the second tier players, Patrick Reed and Phil Mickelson played well, both notching top-ten finishes. Tiger Woods played decently over the first three rounds, but a three over par in the fourth round took the teeth out Tiger’s presence in DFS lineups. His 50.4 points on FanDuel was disappointing for those who took a chance on the former number one.

Joaquin Niemann, the rookie masher from Chile, couldn’t make his way to the weekend in his second PGA tournament. Of the remaining sleeper picks, Adam Hadwin provided some punch to the bottom tier of a roster, finishing with 66.5 points on DraftKings. Xander Schauffele and Kevin Streelman couldn’t get a good run going, as Streelman was cut, and while Schauffele made the weekend, his game didn’t help many daily fantasy players in their contests.

Elite Group to Tee it Up at TPC Sawgrass

With Thomas, Dustin Johnson, McIlroy, Day, Fowler, and Jordan Spieth all scheduled to compete, daily fantasy players have a multitude of choices to fill out the top spots in their lineup. Because of the stacked field, FanDuel and DraftKings competitors should consider their past performances at the volatile Florida course before setting a lineup. Day and Fowler have recent victories here and are both playing well currently.

Serious money can be made by selecting the right second tier players. Quality DFS performers such as Bubba Watson, former winner Matt Kuchar, and Tony Finau find themselves in the $7000 range. Defending champ Si Woo Kim can be drafted around that price as well. For the fantasy player looking to round out their lineup with an affordable pick, any of these options can help you make an impact.
