WGC-Mexico Championship PGA DFS PICKS (DraftKings)
Before you set your PGA lineups on DraftKings, you need to take a look at our reliable plays of the week. If you had taken our advice and created a team from our picks, you could have had a decent week last week.
We were all over Adam Scott at $7,700 last week. He was 12% owned and put up 69.00 fantasy points as he places T13. One of our biggest plays was Webb Simpson at $8,300. He was only at 6% owned, and he scored 75.50 with a T5 finish as had a chance on Sunday.
Our biggest play was Justin Thomas, and as you all know, he won the tournament with a big “F*** YA.” Thomas as solid all week long and paying that big money price on him paid off.
This tournament fooled everyone last year. All the talk was how players needed to be accurate off the tee, but it turned into a bombers paradise. Let’s dive in a take a look at the locks of the week.
TOP TALENT: $9K AND UP
Justin Thomas ($11,500) – I used to think winning back-to-back tournaments was impossible on tour but it seems like it happens all the time now. If anyone can string together wins is someone like Justin Thomas. Don’t let the win last week scare you away.
Jon Rahm ($10,600) – Golf robot as sorts. He seems to always be at the top of every leaderboard and has the game to win in a WGC field. He played well last year at this event with a T3. The lack of top 10s in his past events doesn’t scare me.
Tommy Fleetwood ($10,000) – Yes, I am still on Fleetwood, and yes one-week Fleetwood is going to win. He’s been so close. Last year he was runner-up here and ranks T5 in greens in regulation.
Should consider: Justin Rose ($9,700) and Sergio Garcia ($9,100)
MIDDLE MAGIC: $8.9K – $7.5K
Patrick Cantlay ($8,700) – He has been on a tear this year. He won back in November at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. He also had a T15 at the WGC-HSBC Championship.
Tony Finau ($8,500) – He is rested and usually always has a chance. He is coming off a co-runner-up at Riviera. He has had five top 5s in seven events.
Matt Kuchar ($7,600) – I’m not too sure Kuchar is your guy to win the tournament. But, he is a cut maker, and if you want Dustin Johnson or Justin Thomas in your lineup, Kuchar could be a dangerous partner for your lineup.
Should consider: Paul Casey ($8,400) and Xander Schauffele ($7,800)
BOTTOM BRAGS: $7.4K – LOWER
Hao-Tong Li ($7,400) – There isn’t much down here this low but again if you take Dustin Johnson or Justin Thomas it pushes to the bottom grabbing for anyone. Li is a decent option this low. Maybe a top 10 which will help in your lineup.
Pat Perez ($7,400) – Again, slim picking but Perez is scary at $7,400. If anyone could go off and win the tournament it’s Perez but, he could also come in last place.
Joost Luiten ($7,300) – His game is strong but hasn’t translated against the PGA’s best. In his previous start, he came in T11.
Should consider: Bernd Wiesberger ($7,100) and Jhonattan Vegas ($6,900)
