Featuring in-depth analysis of value plays for 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 second edition of The Value Aisle! This will be a weekly column that we are adding to our PGA coverage, starting this week at 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) – 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!
- Hank Lebioda ($6,800)
He’s made seven straight cuts, and is a good bet to hang around for the weekend, always a big risk with the players in this piece. He hits the ball long (307.6 yards) – and his game shapes up well for this weekend’s event. He finished 17th at the Valero Texas Open in his last start, and if you are looking for a low-owned value play this week, Lebioda is my favourite dart throw out of the field.
- Max Homa ($6,500)
I think he’s about $500 too cheap. He’s made six of his last seven cuts – and on a week where I’m looking for bombers, Homa fits the bill. He won’t be popular – and allows you to spend up for an extra high priced golfer if you start builds with Homa. It’s not often I recommend using a play in this article for cash – but I have enough confidence in Homa, that I wouldn’t argue if anyone went down that route. I think he finishes top 40 this week.
- Jim Knous ($6,400)
He carries plenty of risk, but if you are looking for a dirt cheap bomber, Knous fits the bill. His driving distance approaches 330 yards, and on this long track, he has the length to hit through some mistakes. He would free up plenty of salary for some high spends elsewhere, and I wouldn’t be shocked to see him stick around for the weekend. At this price, he’s an attractive punt with some upside.
