DraftKings PGA DFS GPP Cheat Sheet for The 2021 Arnold Palmer 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.
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.
This week, the players tee it up at The Arnold Palmer at Bay Hill, a course that has been largely dominated by Tiger Woods and Rory McIroy over time. It tends to reward elite golfers, and ball striking is very important on the Par 72 course that checks in over 7400 yards. The greens are difficult to navigate – but overall I will be weighing course history with ball striking slightly over putting, so if you are looking for one good metric to use this week, it sounds simple but SG: Total is a great one to use as it takes a well rounded golfer (and usually an elite one) to navigate the course at Bay Hill. Let’s dive in and look at some of my favourite options on the board for this week’s event!
