Featuring in-depth analysis of The Wells Fargo Championship, 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 Primer column for The Wells Fargo Championship! 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).
The Best of the Best
- Jason Day ($11,000)
He’s won here in the past, and is a nice pivot off of Rory, who I expect to be extremely popular. He’s also more expensive than some of the chalky options in the $9k-$10.5k range, which should help keep his ownership levels in check. Look for him to be near the top of the leaderboard on Sunday, and I wouldn’t be shocked to see him take home the title.
- Tony Finau ($9,300)
He’ll be chalky – but I have no problem eating the chalk here. He’s an elite talent, and should be over $10k. The only reason to fade him this week is due to game theory in my opinion. His game fits the course outstanding.
The Next Tier
- Jason Kokrak ($8,700)
Kokrak has been outstanding all year long, something I expect to continue this weekend. He has struggled on the greens, but is a great ball striker with great distance in his game. I like his chances of contending this weekend, and while he isn’t cheap – I do think you are getting him at a discounted price, given how well he has played this season.
- Byeong-Hun An ($8,300)
An had a horrible showing last week, but I like the spot he is in – and ownership levels should be much lower on him this week due to recency bias. He has a well rounded game, and at a price point that is quite affordable for a player of his skill level, I love the spot he is in for this weekend.
- Keith Mitchell ($7,800)
Another bomber whose game fits the course well. He’s a little more expensive than I’d like – but that should help to keep his ownership levels in check. He missed the cut last week – which should also keep down his ownership levels, but I expect a bounce back effort from him this week on a course that fits his game well.
- Sam Burns ($7,200)
Long hitter whose game should play well here, I like what I’ve seen from Burns of late. He’s priced affordably, comes into this one with five straight made cuts, including a 9th place finish at the RBC Heritage last week. He opens up roster builds at his price point, and I love him as a value play this week.
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.
