Welcome to The Primer column for The RBC Heritage Classic! We are here to help you build your DFS lineups for FanDuel, DraftKings or whatever other sites you choose to play on (this article does have a DraftKings bias though).
What a week. Tiger gets back in the win column for another major – and while it will be a tough bill to follow, we do have a quality field teeing it up at The RBC Heritage this week.
Let’s look at some of my favourite plays on the board this week…
The Best of the Best
- Matt Kuchar ($10,000)
I hate paying this price for Kuchar – but it’s hard to argue his chances this week. While the field isn’t horrible, it is far from elite – and at a price that isn’t too restrictive, as is the case with DJ – he’s a rock solid play. I’d be shocked if he isn’t in the mix on Sunday. His game fits the course well, he’s playing some of the best golf of his life, and there’s a lot to like about going over-weight exposure to him in your line-ups this weekend.
- Jim Furyk ($9,400)
Great course history – check. Strong recent form – check. Price point that doesn’t break the bank – check. There’s a lot to like with Furyk this week – he’s in a great spot at a course he has dominated on for years.
- Tommy Fleetwood ($9,200)
I really thought that Fleetwood would contend at this year’s Masters – but he fell flat, finishing an unspectacular 37th. Prior to the year’s first major, he had two straight top 5 finishes – and he is priced very affordably for a player of his calibre this week. I think he should check in between $10k and $10.5k. I’ll be over-weight exposure here, and I think we get a strong bounce back effort from Fleetwood this week at the RBC Heritage.
The Next Tier
- Byeong Hun-An ($8,200)
Has only one appearance at this tournament in the past – but he checked in with a 7th place finish. He didn’t tee it up at the Masters last weekend – however, he comes into this one in great form with two T10 finishes in his past three starts. He’s cheap – I do expect him to be popular, but I have no problem going over-weight exposure on him this weekend.
- Charley Hoffman ($7,800)
While the start to his season was pretty much a tire fire – he has been rounding into form with an 18th, 2nd, and then a 29th place showing at The Masters. He’s priced in a range that could see him ignored from a roster construction standpoint – and he will be overlooked by many quant metrics that will factor in his play from earlier in the year when he was a shell of his usual self. I like his chances of having a strong weekend, and will be over-weight exposure here.
- Rafael Cabrera-Bello ($7,600)
A nice pivot off of Luke Donald, who will be high owned in the same price range. RCB is too cheap in my opinion, and while he won’t be a low owned play, he’s a great bet for a top 25 finish – which is great for a player at this price point.
It should be a fun week of PGA action – and here’s to hoping it’s a good one for you! If you have any questions at all, you can find me on Twitter @bradsgotmoxy.
