8 months agoJoaquin Niemann is in the field for the upcoming Rocket Mortgage Classic. Niemann heads to Detroit fresh off a career-best-tying T5 at last week's Travelers Championship. The young star scuffled for the better part of 2019, but has turned things around over the last month with four solid outings. The 20-year-old ranks 34th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: tee to green. His weakness is normally the putter, but the flatstick has been more cooperative recently. Niemann's talent and trending form makes him a high-upside DFS option this week at Detroit Golf Club. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

8 months agoBubba Watson is in the field for this week's Rocket Mortgage Classic. Watson heads to Detroit in slumping form. The 40-year-old is fresh off a disappointing T54 at last week's Travelers Championship and hasn't logged a top-10 finish since March. The lefty is a very course-specific type of player and it's anyone's guess as to how he will react to seeing Detroit Golf Club for the first time. Watson is a recognizable name in this weak Rocket Mortgage field, but his recent form makes it tough to put much confidence in him. He's an iffy fantasy prospect this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

8 months agoRickie Fowler is in the field for this week's Rocket Mortgage Classic. Fowler is sponsored by the company that's hosting the new event in Detroit. The fan favorite has a win at the Waste Management Phoenix Open on his 2019 resume, but he's been a non-factor in the year's last two major championships. This tournament's field is one of the weakest of the season, which automatically makes Fowler one of the favorites at Detroit Golf Club. His DFS salaries are expensive across the industry, but he is without a doubt an elite option in this spot. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

8 months agoIt has been a long few months for Bryson DeChambeau, who missed four cuts in a row before finishing tied for 22nd at the Memorial and in a share of 35th during last week's U.S. Open. The American has found TPC River Highlands to suit his game in the past, finishing last year in ninth place to go along with two top-50 performances before that. DeChambeau has the talent to compete on virtually any track, but TPC River Highlands might be just what the doctor ordered for him at this time. DeChambeau should be able to use his length and ball striking abilities to create a ton of birdie opportunities, and we aren't counting the 10th-ranked player in the world out this weekend in Connecticut. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

8 months agoSi Woo Kim is not your average player. Yes, he is as streaky as can be and can be frustrating to support in certain situations, but the 23-year-old is a Pete Dye specialist who often doesn't get priced correctly on tracks that suit his game. Some players will consistently have course history baked into their DFS or betting number, but sportsbooks often fail to acknowledge specific design types. Kim has dominated on Pete Dye designs in his career, yet that isn't necessarily being incorporated into his price tag the same way as other players. Charley Hoffman has found success numerous times at this venue, and we do like Hoffman this week, but if we are going to put the UNLV product at $8,100 on DraftKings, there is no reason not to have Kim in that same exact range. The two-time PGA Tour winner has provided two top-26 showings in his two attempts at the course and is one of the better values on the board at $7,400. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
8 months agoKevin Tway is known as a bomber, but the one thing that most tend to ignore when breaking down his style is that he performs exponentially better at shorter tracks. A course such as TPC River Highlands is almost the perfect mixture for the American because it allows him to use his length as an advantage but doesn't possess a ton of slip-up spots off the tee. His victory at the Safeway Open provided a similar set up of a smaller course that allowed him to use his length with no real danger, and we believe it helps to explain why Tway has posted a top-50 result in every showing at the Travelers Champion since 2014. A sixth-place finish last season should be something that the 30-year-old can build from, yet he is going virtually unnoticed with five percent projected ownership. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
8 months agoKyle Stanley has gotten off to an abysmal start in 2019, missing eight of 15 cuts, but a share of eighth place at the Wells Fargo Championship in May has been somewhat masked by his recent struggles at the U.S. Open and PGA Championship. Bethpage Black should be thrown out the window because of his lack of length, and we can even somewhat overlook his share of 65th place last weekend at the U.S. Open because of his historical struggles in major championship events. It is impossible to claim that 56th-ranked player in the world has rediscovered his game, but two top-20 showings at this venue in the past five years mixed with his recent performance in North Carolina is enough for us to be intrigued. Stanley's less than four percent projected ownership on DraftKings is a bargain given his upside potential, and he is someone who could far exceed his price tag this weekend.--Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
8 months agoAdam Hadwin was forced to sit out of last week's U.S. Open after failing to qualify, but he was able to provide a sixth-place showing the previous weekend in his home country of Canada. Hadwin has seen a steady decline in his ranking during the 2019 calendar season and enters the week currently ranked 74th in the world. Despite having some ups and down throughout the year, Hadwin's ball striking nature does make him an option to contemplate in Connecticut and is someone who should be considered heavily for cash-game lineups. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

8 months agoDuring Jason Day's career, he has been the No. 1 player in the world for 51 weeks, reaching the pinnacle of his success in 2015 and 2016. But despite all the glorious accolades that the Australian has achieved, Day has called himself an "underachiever" during his career. However, all of that might be about to change after hiring new caddie Steve Williams to his bag. Williams rose to fame by helping guide Tiger Woods to 13 of his major championship titles, and Day has sounded rejuvenated since making the hiring before last week's U.S. Open. "You just have to look at the players that he's (worked) with," Day said. "It puts your mind at ease knowing that he knows what he's doing." It remains to be seen if the partnership will work out the way that the 31-year-old is hoping, but we are all in when it comes to his chances in Connecticut this weekend. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
8 months agoMatthew Wolff will be making his professional debut in this week's Travelers Championship. Wolff recently won the 2019 NCAA Individual Championship and has been a dominant force in amateur golf over his career at Oklahoma State University. The 20-year-old has all the markers of a future PGA Tour star, as he's super-long off the tee and a solid ball striker. TPC River Highlands is one of the shortest tracks on the PGA Tour schedule and will relinquish tons of birdies to this week's field. A young gunner like Wolff makes for an interesting DFS option in this situation. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
8 months agoJoaquin Niemann took the PGA Tour by storm in 2018, but this season has been a different story for the young man from Chile. Niemann has struggled horribly on the greens in 2019 and ranks just 182nd on the PGA Tour in total putting. He has turned things around a bit recently, with finishes inside the top 31 in each of his last three starts. The 20-year-old heads to TPC River Highlands this week for what will be his first career start in the Travelers Championship. Niemann's sharp ball striking makes him worthy of DFS consideration in large-field tournaments. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
8 months agoSungjae Im is set to tee it up in this week's Travelers Championship. Im failed to qualify for last week's U.S. Open and will be returning from a rare week off. The youngster has played in a staggering 26 events this season. Im has been successful in his rookie campaign, to the tune of six top-10 finishes, with a seventh-place finish coming in his most recent start at the RBC Canadian Open. The 21-year-old will be making his debut at TPC River Highlands, but we've seen that he has the ability to learn quickly on new courses. He's a solid DFS value at his sub-$8k DraftKings price. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
8 months agoA wrist injury has somewhat stunted Justin Thomas' season. The American has missed two of his past three cuts since returning from his nagging right wrist injury but will look to get back on track during this week's Travelers Championship. Thomas has provided a mixed bag of results at TPC River Highlands in the past, posting a top-three finish in 2016 but failing to render a showing inside the top-50 in his other three attempts. The 26-year-old will be one of the higher owned options on the board at his $9,800 price tag, so gamers must decide what to do with the young superstar. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
8 months agoJordan Spieth continues to make his way up the pricing on DraftKings, entering the Travelers Championship as the third highest priced option. The 29th-ranked player in the world appears to have turned things around recently, posting nine straight made cuts to go along with three top-eight finishes in his past four events. It is hard to say that Spieth is fully back to his old self, but it is clear that he is beginning to round back into form. Projected to be around 10 percent owned, Spieth makes for an intriguing GPP option to consider, although we would still be hesitant to play him in cash-game lineups. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
8 months agoAfter a disappointing share of 65th place at the U.S. Open last week, Tommy Fleetwood will be quickly back in action at the Travelers Championship. The Englishman will be making his debut at the tournament and is priced at $9,300 on DraftKings. Currently projected to be around 10 percent owned, Fleetwood adds some contrarian pivot potential off of players such as Paul Casey, but his upside remains questionable. We probably would prefer to play the 20th-ranked player in the world in cash-game lineups due to his inability he has shown to win in America, but a case could be made for him as a GPP option. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
