PGA Draft & DraftKings Plays - Thursday January 25th 2018


We have the Farmers Insurance Open this weekend live from San Diego, California! Here are my favorite plays this weekend for both Draft and DraftKings!

It is the Farmers Insurance Open and the return of Tiger Woods to the PGA Tour! The Farmers Insurance Open takes place in San Diego at the Torrey Pines golf course. This tournament takes place on two golf courses, Torrey Pines North and Torrey Pines South. Rounds 1 and 2 each golfer plays on both courses. Rounds 3 and 4 are played on the south course. The South Course is one of the most difficult courses on the tour. Expect fantasy points to be lower this week.

When building my lineups for draft I lean towards Vegas Odds to win and draft my lineups based on that. When there is a tie for odds I look at course history, recent tournament history, strokes gained stats, birdie or better stats, bogey avoidance stats and par 4 and par 5 scoring. I also look at course fit statistics such as how they hit on that type of grass, how they hit on courses in that area, etc. If you are a Rotogrinders subscriber there is a great article called "Searching For A Specialist" that goes through this in more depth. 

This weekend on Draft I'm dedicating half my budget to 3 person and 4 person contests. The other half is going to 6 person and 8 person contests. person will be regular contests and 4 person contests will be tournaments. I'm also targeting a couple of dream team contests.

Here are my top 15 plays:

Tier 1

  • Jon Rahm
  • Rickie Fowler 
  • Hideki Matsuyama 
  • Justin Rose
  • Tiger Woods 
Tier 2
  • Marc Leishman 
  • Jason Day
  • Brian Harman 
  • Tony Finau 
  • Patrick Cantlay 
Tier 3
  • Brandt Snedeker 
  • Charles Howell 
  • Jhonattan Vegas
  • Phil Mickelson 
  • Gary Woodland 
For Draftkings this weekend I'm not a big fan of the top tier of golfers this week. However, I see a lot of golfers in the mid tier and value tier that I like. Therefore I will be constructing my lineups with the plays that I like for the top tier with other golfers that fit salary wise. I will also be building some lineups where I will avoid the top tier all together. For Draftkings I look at everything I mentioned above for Draft. The difference is salary comes into play.

Here are the golfers I like this week on DraftKings. Keep in mind I am a GPP player. So there are golfers who are also good plays that I'm not playing and not all my plays are safe for cash. If you have a question about a specific golfer that I named or didn't name please ask! That's how we learn and all become better players.
