PGA Top DFS Plays: Rocket Mortgage Classic

Finally, a week without Scottie Scheffler for my Top DFS Plays!

The No. 1 golfer in the world added his 6th win to his season as he held off Tom Kim in a playoff to win the Travelers Championship last week.

This week Scheffler is not in the field for the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club (par 72, 7,370 yards).

Despite its 4-inch rough, the Detroit Golf Club has been defenseless vs. the PGA Tour pros in recent years.

The winner has shot a score of 23-under or better in four out of the past five years. Rickie Fowler is defending champion, winning in a three-way playoff with Collin Morikawa and Adam Hadwin. All three shot 24-under last year.

Onto my Top DFS Plays for the Rocket Mortgage Classic:

10K & Above

Tom Kim ($11,000)

Alex Noren ($10,200) is the highest ranked 10K golfer on my spreadsheet this week, but Kim has been a more consistent recent performer.

Kim has found his approach game again after improving his swing speed.

Since the PGA Championship, Kim has finished 26th or better in 5 of his last 6 events.

However, the 10K range may be an avoidable group this week. All four, including Cam Young ($10,700) and Min Woo Lee ($10,500), are expected to see rostered numbers 20 percent or higher range.

This will also be Kim’s 9th straight week playing an event, and he missed the cut at last year’s Rocket Mortgage.

Proceed with caution with this group.

9K & Above

Akshay Bhatia ($9,800)

DraftKings did a really good job with pricing this week.

Bhatia is worthy of his price with his recent play, but he and Taylor Pendrith ($9,600) are both probably going to carry high rostered numbers.

Bhatia earned the top spot on my spreadsheet, while Pendrith is in the Top 10. And Pendrith has two Top 15 finishes the last two years at the Rocket Mortgage.

However for Bhatia, he will be playing for an 8th straight week.

8K & Above

Davis Thompson ($8,300)

Thompson has four Top 30 finishes in 4 out of his 5 events, including two Top 10s.

His elite approach game to go along with an above average putter makes a great spot in Top DFS Plays.

He’s joined by Maverick McNealy ($8,900) and Keith Mitchell ($8,500) in my Top 10 this week.

7K & Above

Erik Van Rooyen ($7,800)

This price group may be my favorite this week.

Rooyen comes into this week No. 2 on my spreadsheet, and I believe he is the best play on the slate.

His weakness skill is SG: Around the green which is not needed at Detroit Golf Club.

His elite putting will come in handy on the Donald Ross greens, and his above average approach game will set up his putter.

Mark Hubbard ($7,700), who never misses a cut, and Matt Wallace ($7,400) both could have big weeks.

Punt Plays

Despite not having a 13K golfer this week, DraftKings dropped down into the 5K range again. However, I don’t think you need to dive too deep to complete your lineups. My favorite 6K golfers are Chandler Phillips ($6,700) and Jacob Bridgeman ($6,300).
