Comments: Daily Fantasy Golf Picks – The Masters - DraftKings #DFG

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

Lee Westwood $8,800

Westwood may not be playing his best golf at the moment but he's been among the most consistent performers at Augusta since 2008: T8, T3, T11, 2, 43, T11.

Angel Cabrera $8,600

Cabrera can come into Augusta ice cold yet still compete. Since winning back in 2009 he's finished T18, 7, T32 and was last year's runner-up.

Steals

Fred Couples $7,200

Couples comes into the Masters with a streak of four straight top-15 finishes at Augusta. After two rounds of play he was T1 in 2012 and T2 last year.

Thorbjorn Olesen $5,500

Olesen placed T6 in last year's Masters debut, despite going 6-over in the first round. He opened 2014 with a pair of top-fives on the European Tour but has missed three straights cuts in the States. At this price, 81st out of 97 players, the gamble is well worth it.

Overpriced

Zach Johnson $10,300

Two missed cuts, zero top-30s in five starts since winning the Masters in 2007.

Keegan Bradley $10,000

Mediocre thus far in 2014, T54 and T27 in two previous trips to Augusta.
