For those of you new to the plethora of content DFSKarma.com puts out on a daily/weekly basis, this is my weekly PGA article that focuses on the cheapos no one else dare write about. It had massive success last year with my getting sub $7K (DK) golfers finishing top 10 at less than 1% ownership on an almost weekly basis. Well, I’m bringing it back this year with the same concept. My cap this year is $7300 in DraftKings pricing (but you can still play them on FanDuel, FantasyDraft, or Yahoo). I focus on recent form and course history heavily to spit out my favorite 5 golfers from within that range.
That being said, my PGA Punt Plays article looks a little different (for the better) moving forward. You will see below that I have highlighted 5 players within Fantasy National within my price range of $7300 and below.
2019 John Deere Classic
Fabian Gomez leads the way this week with a 3rd place ranking in my model. All but one of his stats are pretty, and being one of the easiest courses in the entire season, I’m not too worried about that sole poop stat being OTT.
Ben’s cousin Beau is a huge fan of Bentgrass putting. What is he not a huge fan of? Hitting the ball hard. Horrid BS and OTT rankings coming in to this event. But, easy course, could still very well make the cut. Wish he was a tad cheaper.
Werenski’s worst stat is 68th in ARG. He doesn’t have anything inside the Top 20. At $6400 though, he is consistent enough across the board to warrant a plug this week.
Roger Sloan is 11th in DK scoring and is also a fan of Bentgrass greens. I’m not in love with him this week, but if you are making 10+ lines, I’d give him a spot in one of them.
Johnson Wagner is literally at the bottom of the entire player pool in ARG. That aside, once you scroll down to his tourney history, you will see why I have him as my Punt Play of the Week.
Peter Uihlein is slowly becoming a thorn in my side. Every time I write him up he under performs. This week, however, he does come into this event with 4 stats inside the Top 23 and is 13th overall in DK scoring.
Stewart Cink has made the cut in 95% of the articles I’ve written him up in. Horrible on bentgrass but good elsewhere, including being ranked FIRST overall in SG: APP.
Stefani was here last week and impressed with a solid Top 15 finish. Keeping that momentum, I think he makes the cut this week again with not a single stat worse than 57th.
You see what I mean?! Wagner had THREE STRAIGHT Top 7 finishes, missed the cut, then came back with a 16th. At $7200, I’ll have him in a few lines.
Stefani made 4 straight before missing in 2018. I think he is playing a lot better this year than last. Expect another made cut.
Werenski has back to back Top 25 finishes here. Tie that to recent form and his $6400 price tag is super juicy this week.
Sloan hasn’t competed here in the last 3 years. Like I said, I’m not in love with him, but he is worth a look to those making more than 10 lines this week.
Mr. Makes The Cut hasn’t competed here in the last 2 years, but is 2 for 3 of in the years prior. At $6600 you are simply paying for him to make the cut, which he will, because of his nick name I gave him…and his recent form.
Fabian, who is the top Punt in recent form, finished a respectable 23rd here last year. Take his recent form and sub $7K price tag into account, he is worth a look or two.
Beau and Peter don’t have any recent tournament history here. Take that as you will.
