Daily Fantasy Golf Picks – Shell Houston Open - DraftKings #DFG

 0 Reader Comments | Add Yours

Daily and weekly fantasy sports have become all the rage. Battling it out over an entire season is fun, but sites like DraftKings offer a quicker payoff and big payouts for winners! Not only do they offer daily action in the four major professional sports (MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL) as well as college basketball and football but also the PGA Tour.

Your DraftKings lineup is made up of six golfers you select from within the $50,000 salary cap. Each week DraftKings offers a wide selection of games to enter at a variety of price points. You can even get a feel for the game in a freeroll contest.

Before you put your cash on the line I'll offer my Top Values and Steals in this space every week, specifically geared to help build a winning DraftKings squad. I'll also give you my Overpriced golfers to avoid.

This is the FINAL WEEK to qualify for the Spring Golf Classc at August for The Masters!

The balanced lineup finished just inside the money led by Kuchar and a cast of solid performers. Studs and Scrubs fell apart with Mickelson's injury and two budget players that did jack. Steele was an overpriced dud and kept the Value Picks from doing much of anything.

This week I'm setting my sights a little higher on the backend of my lineups, as that has been my undoing lately. I'm going with Ben Curtis because he's made seven of 11 cuts this season and has scored 55 or more fantasy points in his last two events.
