Thanking You for a Great PGA Season
It was only fitting for Tiger Woods to capture his first victory in five years at the Tour Championship this weekend at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta. The 2018 PGA season has been a wild one. While the youth movement is definitely still in full effect, some of the old guard started making waves again this season, adding to the already deep pile of players who could provide great impact in daily fantasy contests on FanDuel and DraftKings.
Competitive Contests for the Final Weekend of Fantasy Play
Of course Tiger and Justin Rose were popular pickups in many four-day contests, but the real money was won by the savvy enough DFS players to draft cheaper options like Billy Horschel and Xander Schauffele. Those two were the only real “sleepers”, considering the condensed field of the playoff format.
On the reverse side of things, many crucial fantasy points were lost because of some lackluster weekends by some reliable sources. Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari were spendier choices that, while not scoring poorly, just didn’t bring the same thunder they displayed in earlier weeks.
A Great Year for DK Legends Golf
Throughout the year, we’ve provided our members with a variety of recommendations for good bargains, as well as a sneak peek at our expert’s FanDuel lineup each and every week. From the early run through the west coast, there were higher salary players such as Jon Rahm proving worth the cost, while some sleeper options like Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar were showing they could still bring their “A” game.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the year was the drop off in play from Jordan Spieth. While at first a fixture at the top of the salary list, the young phenom played inconsistently all season and could be found in less and less lineups.
Koepka, Molinari, and Patrick Reed managed to take home the majors, but they also cemented themselves as surefire options for your lineup each week. Additionally, players like Tony Finau, Schauffele, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, and Kevin Streelman were consistently putting up sneaky good numbers all season, but somehow remained at a good value.
Thank You for a Great Season
It’s been a pleasure playing through the 2017-2018 PGA Tour season with our fellow DFS golf fanatics. Hopefully a few of our hidden gems helped you bring in some more paydays. Fortunately, the PGA season starts back up again before we all know it, and we’ll be right back at it, mining for the hidden values each and every week!
