Hello PGA DFS players and welcome to my “Par 3” article, here on Fantasy Forecast.
In this short and sweet article, I will give you my 3 suggestions on who to play this weekend at the U.S. Open on Draft Kings. I will give you the must play you need to lock into your lineups, a value play and a sleeper play you should get at low exposure.
Must Play – Dustin Johnson $12,000 – Johnson is the World’s Number 1 golfer. Point blank. He is Coming off a terrible outing missing the cut at the Memorial Tournament a few weeks ago but I think we can call that an outlier. He has had multiple top 15 finishes this year before his Memorial meltdown. Johnson leads the PGA Tour in strokes gained off the tee, strokes gained Tee to green, greens in regulation and driving distance. That level of ball striking will be hard for anyone to top and let’s not forget he won the U.S. Open last year. Johnson is a must play this week.
Value Play – Thomas Pieters $7,700 – The 25th ranked player in the world has shown he has what it takes to perform on the grandest of stages, and his length off the tee will be a huge advantage for him. Pieters finished T4 during his first Masters. He then followed that up with a T14 a the Euro Tour’s BNW PGA Championship.
Sleeper Play – George Coetzee $6,900 – The South African’s upside has been impressive, with five top-10 finishes this year. He finished seventh at Whistling Straits two years ago at the PGA Championship, and it just so happens to be one of the most comparable courses to Erin Hills.
