PGA DFS: Fantasy Golf Sleeper Picks and Advice for the Greenbrier Classic


By Keith Allison (Tiger Woods) [CC BY-SA 2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Editor’s Note: Our Partner DraftKings is hosting a HUGE Fantasy Golf tournament this weekend . The PGA Greenbrier Classic will pay $250K in prizes with $100K to first place, and best of all it's just $3 to enter! 

If you Sign up and make a deposit now, you’ll get a 100% bonus on your first DraftKings deposit. We’ll also give you free access to RotoBaller’s Premium MLB DFS Lineup Picks and Tools (a $29.99 monthly value).

 

Bubba Watson beat Paul Casey on a second playoff hole to win his second Travelers Championship this past Sunday. He’s now looking ahead to capture his second tournament victory in as many weeks at the Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia. The course is a par 70, 7,287 yards with a 141 slope. The Old White TPC is a very historic and legendary course; President Woodrow Wilson played this course in 1914, and Sam Snead shot his last hole-in-one on the 18th hole in 1995.

The winner will take home $1,206,000 and an additional 500 FedEx Cup points. Angel Cabrera will be looking to defend his title here from last year. The competing field is not stacked with talent, but notables such as Tiger Woods, Paul Casey, Webb Simpson, Louis Oosthuizen and Watson will be present.

 

PGA DFS High-Priced DraftKings Picks ($9,100-$13,000)

Bubba Watson ($13,000 Vegas 23-1)

If you can find a way to put Watson in your lineup, you must. He won last week scoring 121 fantasy points. He shot all four rounds in the 60s including a first round 62. Last year, Watson shot a seven under and tied for 16th. I’m usually against picking the outright favorite, but Watson seems to be on fire and should have a top 10 finish to justify his big price.

Webb Simpson ($12,300 Vegas 25-1)

Simpson is priced $500 below Paul Casey and Casey is 27-1 to win the tournament, so if it’s between Simpson and Casey choose Simpson. Vegas list him with better odds to win the tournament. Simpson tied for 3rd here last year and shot a 10 under. He has not played since the U.S. Open where he finished tied for 46th, but with a nice two-week layoff the former U.S. Open champ should be ready to go.

Tony Finau ($9,800 Vegas 40-1)

Finau tied for 25th at the Travelers last week; his worst finish since he tied for 19th at the Crowne Plaza on May 21st. He has been averaging 81.25 fantasy points since the Wells Fargo on May 14th. Finau was right near the top of the U.S. Open until shooing a 3rd round 74; he finished tied for 14th. He ranks 15th in birdies with four per round, and I’m expecting him to continue his stellar play.

 

PGA DFS Mid-Priced DraftKings Picks ($6,600-$8,800)

Tiger Woods ($8,600 Vegas 60-1)

Everyone saw how poorly Woods played in the U.S. Open, but I do not expect anything close to that performance here. The only other time he played at this tournament was in 2012 and he missed the cut. Woods’ playing has been so abysmal I don’t think he can play any worse. I have a strong feeling that Woods will be somewhere in the top 10 come Sunday. The former number one in the world can’t play this badly for the rest of his illustrious career. I expect him to turn things around starting Thursday.

Jonas Blixt ($6,900 Vegas 130-1)

Blixt’s best finish this year was tying for 25th back in the first week of April at the Houston Open. He was cut last week at the Travelers, but the week before that he scored 85.5 fantasy points tying for 30th at the Byron Nelson. I wouldn’t normally pick a guy who has been playing so badly, but he won here in 2013. He finished four under tied for 35th at this tournament last year. Blixt should have a nice showing here at a familiar playing ground and he will have confidence in his this weekend.

Scott Stallings (Vegas $6,600 Vegas 120-1)

Stallings won the Greenbrier Classic in 2011 and finished tied for 35th at four under last year. He only has one top 10 finish, but similar to Blixt, I expect him to play well on a course where he has confidence.

 

PGA DFS Low-Priced DraftKings Picks ($5,000- $6,500)

Chad Campbell ($6,500 Vegas 95-1)

Three weeks ago at the St. Jude Classic, Campbell tied for 8th scoring 82.5 fantasy points. Last week he tied for 25th scoring 72.5 fantasy points at the Travelers. He is 53rd in greens in regulation with a 67.7% connecting rate. I really like Campbell to continue his success as of late and minimally make the cut.

Jason Gore ($6,200 Vegas 170-1)

Since being cut at the Byron Nelson and the Memorial he’s turned his game around finishing tied for 29th at the St. Jude Classic, 74 fantasy points, and tying for 10th, 90 fantasy points, last week at the Travelers Championship. Gore ranks 29th in driving and 47th in driving accuracy. He should be able to drive the ball through this course for some birdie chances.

Cameron Percy ($5,800 Vegas 250-1)

To get Percy at this price with how he has been playing is terrific. In his last three tournaments he tied for 10th at the Byron Nelson, 86 fantasy points, tied for 18th at the St. Jude Classic, 72.5 fantasy points, and tied for 54th at the Travelers last week, 73 fantasy points. He is so cheap and should be in every lineup this week. If he can score 70 points or higher, he would be a steal.

 

Quick Hitters

Keegan Bradley ($11,300 Vegas 30-1) is a great alternative if you do not like Simpson as he tied for 4th here last year… Brendon Todd ($8,500 Vegas 45-1) also finished tied for 4th last year and just tied for 15th at the Travelers last week so look for him to be a competitor at the Greenbrier… Stay away at all costs from Kevin Na ($9,100 Vegas 40-1) as he has been a regular pick of mine and burned me last week where he was cut from the Travelers.
