DraftKings PGA DFS GPP Cheat Sheet for the 2020 BMW Championship. 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
Justin Thomas – Fading DJ is a risky proposition given how well he looked last week – but with two quiet showings after his win at the St. Jude, Thomas won’t be low owned, but I do think he will check in around 15%, which is lower than it should be. He’s one of the best in the world, and I like his chances at this course, which I think is a great fit for his game.
Bryson DeChambeau – He’s been brutal in two of his past 4 events, but sprinkled in a 4th at the PGA Championship. This pick though to me is all about getting a player with arguably the highest ceiling in the field at what I’d guess will be sub 15% ownership in a 69 player field. I like that a lot.
Xander Schauffele – He has six straight top 25 finishes and I think it’s only a matter of time before he finds himself in the winner’s circle. He could be lower owned than he should be given the recent wins that some others around him have had. He’s great in all phases of the game, ranking 5th in SG: TTG and 7th in SG: Total, with above average showings in all the core stats.
Daniel Berger – Another week, another appearance on the cheat sheet for Berger.
Scottie Scheffler – Some may balk at the price point here, which I think is something you can take advantage of as he really has been playing outstanding of late after a dismal re-start after the pandemic. He’s an elite ball-striker and comes into this one with back to back 4th place showings. This ‘feels’ like chasing points, but a deeper look into the metrics justifies it on a tough course in my opinion.
Harris English – Much like Berger, he’s been playing too well this season and of late to be this cheap. He’ll be extremely popular coming into this one off of his 2nd place finish last week. Very quietly comes into this one ranked 6th on tour in SG: Total this season.
Viktor Hovland – Hovland is a bit of an outlier, one that probably should have better results than he has. He’s an elite ball striker, and has made great strides with his putting after starting the season dismal on the green. He’s a great player to have in your player pool every week, and especially in no cut events as he has the ability to score with the best of them. Might be my favourite dollar for dollar play this week.
Gary Woodland – I really don’t like many of the golfers between $7100 and $8k – but Woodland is my favourite of the bunch. His game really is elite, though he comes into this one with questionable recent form. The price point here is outstanding though for a player of his calibre – and he’s shown the ability to win big events in his past. I think his game is a great fit for the course – he excels on his approach shots and putting, which I think will play well here at this track.
Mackenzie Hughes – He’ll be low owned this week as he’s a little more expensive than I thought he’d check in at. He has very quietly had an excellent season, including two top 10 finishes and three top 15 finishes in the past 8 tournaments which has included high quality field events like The Memorial (6th) and the Northern Trust (13th). He may have a limited ceiling, but I wouldn’t be shocked if he finished in the top 20 this week, which would be a great ROI at $7k.
Talor Gooch – I really think in a non-cut event there are some intriguing golfers below $7k, led by Gooch. A top 10 finish here isn’t likely from him, but much likes Hughes, I think he can be among the final groups on Sunday this weekend – and if you are looking for a punt with some upside, I think he’s a great option.
Joel Dahmen – Dahmen was a disappointment last week, but I like him to bounce back after narrowly missing the cut. He’s a great ball striker, and I’m willing to give him a mulligan on last week’s disappointing effort. Then again, if you’ve followed my picks this year, you’ll find a horrible track record when I recommend Dahmen – so maybe I’m helping you out by touting him this week so you can fade him!
