Daily Fantasy Golf Picks – RBC Heritag - 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 Week's Picks

Values

Kevin Na $8,800

Didn't play Harbour Town last year with back issue; T8 in 2012, T9 in 2011. Solid results in 2014: T8, T48, T19, T4, MC, 2nd, T14, T11

Will MacKenzie $8,600

Hasn't played Harbour Town since 2011 but has finished sixth or better in three of his last four starts of 2014. Coming off a T2 at the Valero Texas Open.

Steals

Rory Sabbatini $7,900

Quiet in 2014 thus far but worth a gamble. Last four trips to Harbour Town: T9, T17, T14, T8.

Stephen Gallacher $7,500

First timer at Harbour Town. Solid on the European Tour before coming to the states. T6 at Doral, played well last week in the Masters aside from a poor third round.

Overpriced

Zach Johnson $9,700

Hot in January, only one top-10 since. Forgettable at Harbour Town since 2008 other than runner-up in 2012.

Charl Schwartzel $9,600

First timer at Harbour Town. Erratic is his last four starts: MC, T9, T19, MC.

Kevin Na $8,800

Russell Henley $8,300

Stephen Gallacher $7,500

Brice Garnett $6,900

I'm looking to really mix it up this week with little overlap between the three lineups. This field is pretty weak so there's a number of middle tier players that will contend.

Levin is a really interesting rock bottom price player this week. He's been good on his course in the past; three top-15s from 2009-11, but has been a dumpster fire in 2014. Hasn't played in a month, hopefully the rest pays off.

Ouch. Couples was a predictably good value but I got burned by Mickelson, Schwartzel and Cabrera.

If you are creating a new account, DraftKings will double your cash on the first deposit and give you a free entry into a contest.
