2 weeks agoHideki Matsuyama is in the field for the upcoming Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Matsuyama heads to Las Vegas looking to rebound from a disappointing missed cut in last week's Safeway Open. The Japanese superstar is a great bounce-back candidate this week, as his Safeway performance can largely be attributed to rust. Matsuyama is one of golf's premier ball strikers and he recorded a T10 in his lone visit to TPC Summerlin in 2015. 'Deki is something of a bargain on DraftKings this week at a sub-$10k price tag. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
2 weeks agoPatrick Cantlay is in the field for the upcoming Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. It will be Cantlay's second start of the new PGA Tour season. He logged an underwhelming T40 in last week's Safeway Open, but his track record at TPC Summerlin is pristine. The 27-year-old logged his first PGA Tour victory two years ago at the Shriners and recorded a T2 in last season's edition. His strong tee-to-green game and dominant course history positions Cantlay as an elite DFS option this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
3 weeks agoJustin Thomas will be starting his season earlier than usual this year, as he heads to Napa Valley for the Safeway Open. The American was last seen in action at the Tour Championship, an event that saw him go into round 1 as the leader but falter throughout the four days to finish in a share of ninth place. This week, Thomas is the highest-priced player on the DraftKings slate at $11,600 and is projected to be one of the five most owned players at over 17 percent. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
3 weeks agoTwitter legend Phil Mickelson is set to make his season debut in this week's Safeway Open. Mickelson hasn't teed it up since the BMW Championship in mid-August. The 49-year-old faded as the 2018-19 season wore on, with his last top-25 finish coming at the Masters in April. 'Lefty' has gotten off to quick starts in previous years and should arrive at Silverado North rested and refreshed. Mickelson has played this classic layout well and has logged top-10 finishes in two of his last three Safeway starts. He's a 'boom-or-bust' DFS option this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
3 weeks agoHideki Matsuyama is listed as in the field for this week's Safeway Open. It will be Matsuyama's first start of the 2019-20 PGA Tour season. The Japanese superstar had yet another consistent season in 2018-19, when he finished third on the Tour in strokes gained: tee to green. He will head to Napa this week in search of his first victory in over two years. The 27-year-old has played well in two previous trips to Silverado North, recording a T17 in 2016 and a T3 in 2015. Matsuyama's world-class ball striking and strong track record on this layout make him an elite DFS option this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1 month agoJason Kokrak is set to tee it up in A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. Kokrak heads to West Virginia fresh off his best season as a pro. The 34-year-old qualified for the Tour Championship and finished 14th in the FedEx Cup standings. He only missed one cut in 24 starts during the 2018-19 campaign with five top-10 finishes. His track record at the Old White TPC is mediocre, but he did break out for a T3 in last year's edition of this tournament. With his game in hot form, Kokrak is one of the strongest players in this swing season field and should be considered an elite DFS option. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1 month agoJoaquin Niemann is in the field for A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. Niemann got off to a slow start last year due to a balky putter, but finished out the season in strong fashion with three top-10 finishes since June. The young 20-year-old has already logged two career starts at the Greenbrier and recorded a T5 in the 2018 edition. He's a ball-striking extraordinaire and explosive scorer that should once again be near the top of the leaderboard in West Virginia. Niemann is a top-tier DFS option this week and will be a player to watch over the next two months. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1 month agoBubba Watson is in the field for A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. Watson will look to get back on track after a disappointing second half to the 2018-19 season. The two-time Masters champion has a strong connection to this event, as he owns a home at the Greenbrier Resort. He's made the cut in his last five starts on the Old White TPC, but has failed to crack the top 10 in any of those appearances. It's always tough to peg the state of Watson's game and he is a GPP-only DFS play this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1 month agoSungjae Im is in the field for A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. Im is quickly earning a reputation as "the hardest working man in golf" after logging an astounding 35 starts during his 2018-19 rookie campaign. It was a very successful season for the 21-year-old, as he scored seven top-10 finishes and qualified for the exclusive Tour Championship in Atlanta. Im will look to pick up his first PGA Tour win this week in West Virginia and is an elite fantasy option in this swing season field. It will be his first career start at the Greenbrier and first of many in the new season. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1 month agoViktor Hovland is in the field for A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. Hovland has made quite an impression in his short time as a pro with several strong appearances at the end of the 2018-19 PGA Tour season. The Oklahoma State product failed to get his Tour card in limited starts, but easily secured his PGA status for the upcoming season through the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. Hovland has star potential and has a great chance of logging a breakthrough win on the Greenbrier's driver-friendly layout. His DFS price is substantial, but he's a tremendous option in this spot. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
1 month agoAfter a brief break, the PGA Tour gears back up this week at the beautiful Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia. Bryson DeChambeau - the 10th-ranked player in the world - highlights this week's field. DeChambeau logged a win during the 2018 swing season and heads to West Virginia as both the betting favorite and highest-priced DFS option of the week. 'The Mad Scientist' experienced a 'hot and cold' season and battled inconsistency throughout much of 2019, but he is clearly the class of this week's field. He logged a T14 in his lone previous appearance at the Greenbrier in 2017 and he has traditionally played well in events with 'weak' fields. DeChambeau is an elite DFS option if you can afford him. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
2 months agoTiger Woods needed one more miraculous outing at the BMW Championship in order to qualify for this week's season-ending Tour Championship, but the legend ran out of gas at Medinah Country Club. Woods never got things clicking on a course where he had previously captured two major championships and finished outside of the top 35 at seven-under par for the week. It's been a bittersweet season for both Woods and his fans. His win at the Masters earlier this year was perhaps the biggest victory in golf history, but the 43-year-old has looked every bit his age since that astounding accomplishment. Woods will captain the U.S. team in the upcoming President's Cup and it wouldn't be surprising to see him then take another long break over the fall and winter. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
2 months agoJon Rahm has had his fair share of issues closing during the most significant events of the year but has turned into a similar version of Rory McIlroy as of late. The Spaniard has not produced a finish worse than a share of 11th place in his past six starts and has recorded six top-11 results in his nine career playoff starts. Rahm's 19 percent projected ownership on DraftKIngs will make him one of the most popular choices of the week, but the 69-man field that the BMW Championship is producing makes it difficult to attach too much weight onto that statistic. Despite having issues winning on tour this season, Rahm should not be counted out and is one of the biggest threats to take down the title at Medinah. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
2 months agoIt has been quite some year for Rory McIlroy, even if his results during the major championships have been less than stellar. McIlroy has posted 13 top-nine results in his 16 PGA Tour starts, including a victory at the Players Championship. The 30-year-old is no stranger when it comes to competing for the FedExCup title, hoisting the trophy in 2016 and enters the final two events of the year as the second betting choice to capture the season-end title at odds of 6/1. --Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
2 months agoJoaquin Niemann is in the field for the upcoming BMW Championship. Niemann squeaked into the BMW field with a T30 finish at last week's Northern Trust, which put him at 70th in the FedEx Cup points standings. Don't be fooled by his "last man in the field" qualifications, as Niemann is an extremely talented young player that possesses tournament-winning upside. He ranks fifth in this elite field in DraftKings scoring over his last 24 rounds and is an intriguing value play option in DFS formats this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
