PGA US Open Championship

I want to keep this as simple as possible, so each week I will give you 5-10 golfers worth targeting in your lineups.

For DK, since the average to spend on each golfer is $8,333 to make up the $50,000 salary, we will take at golfers to target above and below $8,000. On FD, the average golfer is $10,000 to make up the $60,000 salary, so we will target golfers on FD above and below $10,000.

The golfers will be divided into two tiers: Tier 1 (DK above $8,000 & FD above $10,00) and Tier 2 (DK below $8,000 & FD below $10,000).

Tier 1

Rahm ($11,000 DK & $11,800 FD) : While everyone will be high on DJ, I think Rahm is a nice pivot. 6th, 1st, and 4th. Those are the finishing spots for Rahm over the last three tournaments. He is should be considered a safe play to finish top 15, with a chance at winning!

Thomas ($10,700 DK & $11,600 FD): Thomas is a great pivot from DJ as well. He came storming back to make things interesting at the Tour Championship with DJ, but the starting difference of three strokes proved to be the the difference. I really like this play at well, eyeing a top 10 finish.

Morikawa ($10,000 DK & $11,100 FD): Can Collin win back to back majors? This may be the riskiest play on this list, especially at his price. He missed the cut at the Northern Trust but bounced back for a 20th place finish at the BMW Championship.

Berger ($9,200 DK & $10,700 FD): Berger has been on a tear since golf returned. Four top 5 finished. FOUR. Those are in addition to a 13th place and 25th place finish. He has been such a consistent play, and at his price, I don’t know how you can pass him up.

Tier 2

Casey ($7,900 DK & $9,800 FD): Paul has been up and down since golf returned. He had a great month of August. There is some inherited risk with this play given his price, but when you are building your lineup and can fit him in at the end, I don’t mind plugging in Casey.

Wolff ($7,700 DK & $9,600): It is surprising his price hasn’t adjusted higher. He has finished top 50 in the last six tournaments he played in, with a top 5 finish in there. You can play him with confidence, with the hopes of adding another to 20 finish.

Kisner ($7,600 DK & $9,000 FD): Prior to his 25th place finish at the BMW Championship, Kisner had back to back top five finishes. At the Tour Championship, Kevin finished 23rd. You have to go back two months to find a tournament where Kisner finished outside the top 30.

Munoz ($6,600 & $8,000 FD): After finishing in 8th place at the Tour Championship, Munoz is in a nice place to keep things rolling. He is trending in the right direction recently with top 20 finish at the Northern Trust Open. He is a nice golfer to plug in the lineup and allows you to get some higher priced guys.

Honorable mentions: Schauffele ($10,100 DK & $11,400 FD) and Hovland ($8,000 DK & $9,700 FD)
