DraftKings Fantasy Picks: WM Phoenix Open

0

TPC Scottsdale, one of the most iconic venues in golf, is the host course for this week’s PGA Tour event. The Stadium Course is known for its famous 16th hole – a 163-yard par-3 surrounded by a stadium filled with loud and rowdy fans.

 
The Waste Management Phoenix Open draws some big names which makes it harder to select players in the mid-tier and lower tier.

However, here is my DraftKings advice of the week.

Biggest Risk/Reward

 

  • Jon Rahm $9,700

Rahm is a huge risk/reward this week due to the fact he is coming off a win and it’s pretty tough to go back-to-back on the PGA Tour. However, Rahm did finish T5 in 2015 as an amateur at TPC Scottsdale.

High Price Picks

 

  • Jordan Spieth $12,000 
  • Justin Thomas $11,500

Spieth has recorded three top-6 finishes in his past three starts while Thomas has won the last two tournaments he played (SBS Tournament of Champions and Sony Open).

Mid-Level Picks

 

  • Gary Woodland $9,000 
  • Patrick Reed $8,900 
  • Ryan Moore $8,600 
  • Phil Mickelson $8,400 
  • Brendan Steele $8,200

Woodland has back-to-back Top-20 finishes while Reed has made 4 of 4 cuts this year with two Top-10s.  Moore has played well last year (T11) and is coming off a T3 at the SBS Tournament of Champions.

After getting surgery in the fall, Mickelson has made both cuts and finished inside the Top-25 at both the Farmers Insurance Open and the CareerBuilder Challenge. Steele has played well as of late, recording a T20,T6 and T6.

Best Bang For Your Buck

 

  • Brian Harman $7,700 
  • Matt Kuchar $7,400 
  • Patrick Rodgers $6,600

Harman is one of my favorites to pick because of his consistency (T9, T3, T20) and he is averaging 98.2 FPPG. Kuchar hasn’t played since 12/1 but he did record a T3 at Hero World Challenge and is known for his Top-10 finishes (10 in 2016).

Lineup Of The Week

 

  • Justin Thomas 
  • Ryan Moore 
  • Brendan Steele 
  • Brian Harman 
  • Matt Kuchar 
  • Patrick Rodgers

Lastly, Rodgers played very well last week at Torrey Pines – recording a T4 and 94 Fantasy Points.
