DraftKings PGA DFS GPP Cheat Sheet for The 2021 PGA 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.
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.
We have our second major of the year taking place this week as the best of the best will tee it up at the 2021 PGA Championship! The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island is a beast, checking in at over 7800 yards, and so close to the ocean, and with the tournament playing in May rather than September, where it has been many times – it’s going to be a fairly tough test for the players teeing it up this week. A course this long makes ball striking paramount, with the ability to gain strokes both off of the tee and on approach the two key metrics. While I won’t penalize any players with great short games, I think a good approach is to focus on the ball strikers and players who can thrive on long courses and hope that they get hot with the putter this weekend. Let’s have a look at some players to consider including in your builds for the second major of the year!
