WGC Mexico and FanDuel Lineup
WGC Mexico and FanDuel Lineup
While no one was able to tear up PGA National at this weekend’s Honda Classic in Palm Beach, Justin Thomas provided an exciting finish to what was the most challenging tournament of the young season. Thomas needed an extra hole to secure victory over Luke List, who blistered through the back nine on Sunday to force the playoff which were both DKL Lineup Builder players.
Despite the wind holding down fantasy scores to the lowest of the year so far, the leaderboard was bunched together much of the weekend, granting DFS players an exciting final round; each shot literally swaying four-day contest results.
Making the Most of Few Scoring Opportunities
PGA National was unkind to those hoping for a weekend birdie-fest. Thomas posted an impressive 65 on Saturday, but despite the young phenom’s good day, the wind required many to use whatever ingenuity they had to keep shots from sailing all over the place. Thomas was one of very few to provide a scoring punch, giving a hundred points to those who built their lineup around his expensive salary on DraftKings and FanDuel. List, Alex Noren, and Tommy Fleetwood rounded out the top scorers, but their 80 to 100 points were far below recent tournament scores.
Heading into the Honda, defending champion Rickie Fowler was the odds-on favorite; however, he had a miserable first two days and found himself on the outside looking in on Saturday by missing the cut. DKL once again nailed this by floating him in all formats… did you? As value picks, Tiger Woods and Adam Scott provided a little boost, as both finished inside the top 15. Rory McIlroy, Ollie Schniederjans, and Sergio Garcia were all fortunate to make the cut, but made little impact in four-day and weekend contests.
Top Golfers Looking to Heat Up in Mexico
Thomas will look to continue his winning ways as the PGA travels south of the border to tee it up at the WGC-Mexico Championship. He will be joined by several other top 10 players to round out a stacked field, which includes number one and two in the world, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm as the other tournament favorites. While these top three will certainly cost a good chunk of your salary, there are an array of sleeper and value picks to be had for a good price.
Despite his recent victory, Bubba Watson can be had for $8900 on DraftKings, a steal for a guy who is seeing his game round back into shape. After finishing in the top five last year at Naucalpan, Thomas Pieters will look to capitalize on a course that suits him well. DFS players can pick him up on FanDuel for $9500. As a great ball striker, Noren could find himself on many lineups on Thursday, since his $8800 price tag is quite reasonable.
Several key European Tour players will come to the Club de Golf Chapultepec this weekend, and those with formidable approach and short games will look to post great numbers.
Matthew Fitzpatrick and Shubhankar Sharma represent terrific sleeper picks, as both have been playing well and are some of the best of the third tier options. Who will the DKL Pros go with?
