DraftKings PGA DFS GPP Cheat Sheet for the 2020 WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Featuring top plays, high ceiling candidates, contrarian, and value picks to target for this week’s DraftKings and FanDuel PGA DFS main slate.
We have grouped players into 3 key tiers based on price point.
You can also access a player’s “FC Player Card” by clicking their name or salary. This will bring up key news, stats and match-up data to help guide you along the way for their game that day.
Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, comments, concerns or suggestions. We’re here to help you win!
Our cheat sheets highlight the core plays (including some contrarian candidates) that we like the most on the slate and, as a result, would recommend a higher level of exposure to on the whole. It is not an exhaustive list, and if you are a multi-entry GPP player, you may decide to ultimately have a larger player pool to work from. Our hope is that this gives you a tight group of players to heavy-up your exposure to.
PGA DFS Main Slate Cheat Sheet – Thoughts on the Picks
Bryson DeChambeau – DeChambeau had his infamous blow-up on the 15th in his second round at The Memorial, but after taking a week off – I like him for a strong bounceback at this week’s WGC event. He has the ability to overpower the field, evidenced by his elite metrics – and on the Par 70 track, I like his chances of competing into the weekend this week. Before The Memorial he had eight straight top 10 finishes, and I fully expect him to bounce back after taking a week off.
Justin Thomas – JT has the potential to fly under the radar for this event, given the recent success of some others that are priced up. He’s had a great season, and has 3 top 10 finishes since play returned after the pandemic, and I like his chances in this week’s event of being in the final couple of groups.
Webb Simpson – Webb was a bust at The Memorial – but came into that tournament in elite form. I like his chances for a bounceback effort this week. He ranks 11th on tour in SG: Approach and is a top 10 putter. Definitely a recipe for success given the number of long Par 4’s on the course for this week’s event.
Tyrell Hatton – Hatton racked up another top six finish at the Rocket Mortgage, giving him 5 straight events in the top 6. A bit of an arbitrary cut-off point there, but he’s been playing elite golf. He leads the tour in SG: Total and SG: Putting, while ranking second in SG: Approach. He’s an elite play at $9,700 this week.
Daniel Berger – Berger was a bust at his last event – but I like his chances of bouncing back this week after blowing up on his 36th hole and missing the cut at The Memorial. Much like Hatton, he has been elite all season long – and I like his chances of competing in this loaded field event. He has above average SG metrics in all facets of the game, ranking 8th in SG: Total.
Gary Woodland – At $8,600 – based on price – I think he’ll be popular. Had strong showings in back to back weeks at Muirfield, finishing 5th and 22nd in the two events. He has shown the ability to compete and win in loaded field events, and I think his game suits the course great.
Jason Day – Day has finished in the top 7 in back to back events – and priced down at $8,200 – you have the potential for a great mid-priced option. His game was a train-wreck for most of the season leading up to the last couple of tournaments, but something seems to have clicked in his game and you likely won’t have a shot at rostering him in this price range for much longer.
Matthew Wolff – Wolff has been a little inconsistent – but seems to be breaking through on Tour with a 2nd at the Rocket Mortgage, a 22nd place finish at The Memorial, and a 12th place showing at the 3M Open. He’s great off the tee (15th SG: Tee), an above average putter – and if his approach game and scrambling are able to come together like they have lately – then I see no reason that he won’t be able to be in the mix this weekend.
Kevin Na – Na is a streaky golfer who has shown glimpses of being able to compete in some high calibre fields over time. He comes into this one with two top 10 finishes in his last three events – and even though he doesn’t hit it long off the tee, I like the recent form that he’s shown enough to have him make the cut for the Cheat Sheet this week.
Max Homa – Going to continue to recommend Homa for the forseeable future until his price rises. Great ball striker and loved what I saw from him last week. Has been a favourite play of mine most of the season, and I don’t see much reason to pivot off of it, even though he’s starting to gain some interest from the masses.
Chez Reavie – There’s some warts in his game (short off the tee and a below average putter) – but in this price range, that’s what you are going to get. He’s above average on his approach shots and an excellent scrambler – net/net ranking 53rd in SG: Tee to Green. He’s been putting adequately of late, something I find tends to carry over, and fresh off two top 25 finishes at the two events at Muirfield, I like his chances of playing 4 solid rounds this weekend.
I will be posting a second article on The WGC FedEx St. Jude Inviational, which will be going up Wednesday night – so keep an eye out for The Primer!
