The WGC-Mexico: The Primer – PGA DFS Analysis

Featuring in-depth analysis of The 2020 WGC-Mexico. 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 WGC-Mexico! 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:

  • Dustin Johnson – T10
  • Tony Finau – T51
  • Patrick Reed – T51
  • Collin Morikawa – T26
  • Max Homa – T5

The Best of the Best

  • Webb Simpson, $9,800

Simpson rolls into this event on a heater, with three top 3 finishes in his last 4 events, including a win in his last time out at the Waste Management.  He has finished inside the top 10 in each of his 5 showings so far on the young season – and while this is a high price for him in a loaded field event compared to the last couple of seasons, I have no problem continuing to ride the hot hand until it burns me.  He’s an elite option this week.

The Next Tier

  • Matt Kuchar, $8,800

Kuch roles into this weekend’s event fresh off of a second place finish last week.  He’s priced affordably to the point where you can afford some other splashes of cash with your salary room – and I like his chances of carrying over his strong play from a week ago into this weekend’s WGC event.  He has 5 top 15 finishes so far since the start of the season back in November, and I like his chances of cracking the top 10 this week when everyone tees it up in Mexico.

  • Patrick Reed, $8,400

Reed has had two disappointing finishes in a row, but with the WGC event on tap this week, I think he steps it up and gets back to the strong form that we saw out of the gate so far this season.  When he’s rolling, he is elite and has shown the ability to win loaded field events in the past.  Look for him to have a great showing this weekend, and at this price point, he will be your 3rd or 4th highest priced golfer, depending on how you go about building your line-ups.

Do Not Forget About…

  • Scottie Scheffler, $7,100

If you are looking for a value option, Scheffler stands out to me in the ‘which one of these don’t belong’ category for value plays.  After two disappointing showings in a row, he righted the ship last week with a solid finish to get back on track.  I think he will have a break-out season, and if you are looking for a golfer with a quality, well-rounded game priced affordably, Scheffler is a great option!

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.
