5 months agoDaniel Berger is set to tee it up in the AT&T Byron Nelson. Berger has been attempting to come back from a wrist injury this season but is still struggling to regain his prior form. The talented 26-year-old already has two PGA Tour victories on his resume, but Berger has failed to log a top-25 finish in 2019. He'll try to find the right formula this week at Trinity Forest Golf Club. He didn't play in last year's Byron Nelson, so it's hard to predict how he will react to Trinity's unique layout. It will be tough to trust Berger in DFS lineups until he flashes some form.--Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

5 months agoMarc Leishman is in the field for this week's AT&T Byron Nelson. Leishman will look to repeat his performance from last year's Nelson, when he logged a runner-up finish at 20-under par. The 'Big Aussie' fired an opening-round 61 at Trinity Forest last year, but couldn't hold off eventual champion Aaron Wise. After a blistering start to the season, Leishman has hit a rough patch over the past two months and has logged just one top-25 finish in his last five starts. Despite his recent struggles, he is still an elite DFS option in this fairly weak Byron Nelson field. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

5 months agoAlex Noren is in the field for this week's AT&T Byron Nelson. It will be his first career start in the event. Noren has suffered through some abysmal play in 2019 but has looked better in his last two starts -- a T62 at the Masters and a T28 at the RBC Heritage. The Swede will try to carry that momentum to a Trinity Forest layout that he's never played before. The European Tour veteran gained nearly five strokes on approach at Hilton Head, a sign that he might be getting things figured out with his irons. Despite his improving play, Noren's strong DFS price tag for the Byron Nelson might be tough to swallow for many PGA fantasy regulars.--Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

5 months agoHenrik Stenson is set to play in the upcoming AT&T Byron Nelson. Stenson heads to Dallas in search of a breakthrough performance. The Swede has been solid as of late but has yet to put himself in position to win a tournament this year. He logged a T28 in last week's Wells Fargo Championship on the strength of his sharp iron play. Stenson is ranked first on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: approach this season but continues to struggle mightily with his putter. He will attempt to master the huge greens at Trinity Forest this week and is a high-upside DFS option.--Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

6 months agoOllie Schniederjans has had a rough previous two weeks on the PGA Tour. Schniederjans and his partner Adam Svensson missed the cut during the Zurich Classic last weekend, and the 25-year-old was disqualified at the RBC Heritage for signing a wrong scorecard after his round on Friday. The young American had posted rounds of 73 and 77, so it is not like he cost himself a chance at a paycheck, but it could have been a costly mistake under other circumstances. Schniederjans has made one of two cuts at the Wells Fargo Championship in his career and is an intriguing option at $7,000 on DraftKings because of his length off the tee. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

6 months agoDylan Frittelli missed the cut in his inaugural attempt at Quail Hollow last season but has the skills to find success at the daunting 7,554-yard, par-71 course. Compared to the field in 2019, Frittelli ranks inside the top 30 in strokes gained off the tee and par-five scoring. Those two factors will be critical for success, and the South African is well-equipped in those areas. At $7,400 on DraftKings and less than five percent projected ownership, Frittelli is a name to keep in mind when filling out your GPP rosters.--Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

6 months agoOn paper, the Wells Fargo Championship doesn't feel like the best natural setup for Adam Hadwin, but the Canadian has had success at longer courses in his career, which includes a share of 16th place at Quail Hollow last season. However, it must be noted that in Hadwin's first three tries at the venue, he only produced one made cut. The 31-year-old is a polarizing golfer this weekend in North Carolina, but we lean towards him being able to find success for the second straight season. His $7,200 price tag and less than five percent projected ownership on DraftKings makes him an interesting contrarian play. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

6 months agoRory McIlroy's course history at the Wells Fargo Championship has been impressive. The Irishman has posted six consecutive top-16 finishes, which includes a victory in 2015 and a second-place showing in 2012. McIlroy is the deserving 7/1 favorite and warrants consideration in both cash-game and GPP lineups on DraftKings.--Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

6 months agoDespite having a game that would appear to be tailor-made for Quail Hollow, Jason Kokrak has found the venue to be challenging. The 33-year-old has missed his previous three cuts at the facility and has failed to post a top-20 result in six tries, which includes only one finish inside the top 50. However, Kokrak does enter the event this season with better form, producing three top-10 results in his first 10 tournaments of the year. Kokrak's $8,700 price tag on DraftKings and nearly 15 percent projected ownership make him a difficult player to trust, although his form is currently so good that we can perhaps excuse his past results here.--Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

6 months agoLucas Glover's last victory on tour came during the 2011 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow, and the 39-year-old is returning this season with quality form. A missed cut during last week's RBC Heritage has put a slight damper on his season, but Glover has posted three top-10 showings in 2019, including a share of fourth place at the Honda Classic. Priced at $8,500 on DraftKings, the American is projected to be nearly 15 percent owned but does have some upside in GPP events. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

6 months agoJoaquin Niemann is in the field for the upcoming Wells Fargo Championship. The youngster from Chile exploded onto the professional golf scene last year with his dynamic ball striking, but 2019 has been a different story for the 20-year-old. Niemann has been held back by his struggles on the greens and ranks just 208th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: putting this season. He missed the cut in his Wells Fargo debut last year and hasn't logged a top-25 finish since October. Niemann is a prodigious talent, but it's difficult to trust him in DFS formats with his current putting troubles.--Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
6 months agoSam Burns is in the field for the upcoming Wells Fargo Championship. The 22-year-old has been labeled a future star by many in the golf community. Burns' recent play has demonstrated his potential, as he's ran off nine straight made cuts and recorded a top-10 in his most recent outing at the RBC Heritage. The LSU alum averages 306 yards off the tee and his distance should be a huge advantage on this week's lengthy Quail Hollow layout. Burns will be a popular value option in all DFS formats at the Wells Fargo. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

6 months agoSungjae Im is in the field for this week's Wells Fargo Championship. It will be his first career start at Quail Hollow. The young South Korean has made a big impression during his rookie season on the PGA Tour. Im has already recorded three top-five finishes this season and appears to be a star in the making. With no course history at Quail Hollow, there's no way to be sure how the 21-year-old's game will translate to the long North Carolina track, but he's had no trouble adapting to new courses this year. Im's an intriguing DFS option for the Wells Fargo. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

6 months agoDaniel Berger is set to tee it up in this week's Wells Fargo Championship. Berger has never missed a cut in this event in four career starts, but his play has been inconsistent throughout 2019. A two-time winner on the PGA Tour, Berger has been attempting to come back from a wrist injury that derailed his 2018 season with mixed results. While he has the talent to make some noise at Quail Hollow this week, Berger's erratic form makes him a GPP-only DFS option.--Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
6 months agoJhonattan Vegas is in the field for the upcoming Wells Fargo Championship. The big hitter from Venezuela heads to North Carolina in excellent form. Vegas has recorded five straight made cuts and notched an impressive T3 finish at The Players Championship. He ranks ninth on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: off the tee and his game should translate well to this week's lengthy Quail Hollow layout. The 34-year-old has made the cut in his last three Wells Fargo starts with his best finish, a T42, coming last year. His combination of form and course fit is garnering plenty of buzz in the DFS community. Vegas should be a popular fantasy option this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
