The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am: The Primer – PGA DFS Analysis

Featuring in-depth analysis of The 2020 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. 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 2020 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am! 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).

Last Week’s Results:

  • Jon Rahm – T9
  • Xander Schauffele – T16
  • Scottie Scheffler – MC
  • Ryan Palmer – MC
  • Adam Hadwin – T40

The Best of the Best

  • Dustin Johnson, $11,600

DJ’s track record at this event has been outstanding, winning it once and finishing in the top 10 eight other times.  While you are expecting a strong result attached to this price-tag, I like his chances of being among the final pairings this week – and I think he is well worth the spend to pay up for the highest priced golfer on the slate…partially because I like his chances of winning, and partially due to the fact that I like some value plays on the board that help ease the pain of paying this price point.

  • Brandt Snedeker, $10,100

If you don’t feel like paying up for DJ, or if you really like the value plays on the board, enter Sneds.  He looks to have re-gained his form, coming into this one playing great all around golf, led by outstanding play around and on the greens where he ranks 15th in SG: Around the green and 11th in putting on the tour.  I like his chances of stringing together a strong four rounds, and I think he’ll be right in the thick of things this weekend.

The Next Tier

  • Alex Noren, $8,700

I’d like to see him pop – but it’s hard to argue with the consistency we have seen from him so far in the young season.  He comes into this one with three T15 finishes out of his last four starts, and at a price point that is very affordable, he is as high of a floor play in this price-range as you can find on the board.  He has the ability to play with the best in the world, and love him as a core play this weekend.

  • Max Homa, $8,300

Homa has been a regular on the cheet sheets, but hasn’t quite made the cut to be featured in the Primer.  It’s hard to argue with his recent form…coming off a T6 at the Waste Management.  He played great at this event a year ago, and I like his chances of building off of one of the more impressive showings in a loaded field event last week.  We could see a breakout 2020 season from Homa, and take advantage of the price bump, which will help keep his ownership levels in check (I think).

Do Not Forget About…

  • Mark Hubbard, $7,100

A rather unknown quantity, Hubbard has had an outstanding start to the 2020 campaign.  He saw a $800 price jump, which was probably long over-due.  He has made a habit of making cuts, and was in the mix of things at the Waste Management until untlimately falling short on Sunday, finishing in a tie for ninth.  I like his chances of continuing his strong recent form, and love him as a value play to open up your builds for higher spends this week.

Here’s to hoping it’s a good one for you as we truck on through the PGA season!  If you have any questions at all, you can find me on Twitter @bradsgotmoxy.
