Featuring in-depth analysis of value plays for The RBC Heritage Classic, 2019. Daily fantasy golf analysis for this week’s DFS slate to help you build winning cash game and tournament lineups on DraftKings.
Welcome to the first edition of The Value Aisle! This will be a weekly column that we are adding to our PGA coverage, starting this week at 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) – and this article will focus on players that are under $7k on DraftKings.
The purpose of this piece is to highlight some players that are priced under $7k that can help free up some cash for some high spends. You’ll see some recommendations that I feel have a high probability of making the cut – and a couple that I think if things break right, could be in the mix come Sunday. Of course, the odds are pretty long of that being the case – or else they would not be priced as low as they are – but nonetheless, I wanted to build out some coverage on an often overlooked part of the field. With that said, let’s get to it!
- Harold Varner ($6,300)
Varner caught fire towards the end of the 2018 season, and carried it into 2019 – with 6 Top 20 finishes over a three month stretch. He hit a rough patch shortly thereafter, but seemed to put things together for a solid 23rd place finish at the Valero Texas Open. He’s priced way down this week in a field that isn’t overwhelming, and I love him if you are tight on cash and need a flier to round out your builds this week.
- Mackenzie Hughes ($6,900)
Hughes is a guy that I have no problem going over-weight on when he’s playing well – and I continue to like what I see from the Canadian. He has a limited ceiling – and I’d be shocked if he finished in the top 10 – but if you are looking for a low single digit owned play that I think has a good shot at making the cut (and if everything goes his way, could finish in the top 25) – he’s a solid option this week. He has two top 15 finishes in his last three events, making the cut in all three.
- Ben Silverman ($6,100)
He was dismal at the Valero Texas Open, but had been on a nice run prior to that tourney – and priced just $100 above the minimum – he’s a great option if you are looking for a boom/bust complete punt this week. He’s a strong putter – and if he can get the flatstick rolling this week, I wouldn’t be surprised if he pieces together a top 40 finish here. For the price, you could do a lot worse.
