DraftKings Fantasy Picks: WM Phoenix Open

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.
