The major championship season may be behind us, but many PGA Tour stars are in a mad rush to qualify for the start of the FedExCup Playoffs in a couple weeks. This week's 2015 Wyndham Championship features a flurry of big names from which to choose for your DraftKings fantasy golf roster, so let's get right into it.

Strategy

As we've discussed on multiple podcast episodes, strategy is everything when it comes to a massive fantasy golf system like DraftKings. Pat Mayo over at RotoExperts.com is the best at explaining all the stats you should consider when making your picks, which boil down to:

  1. Strokes Gained: Putting
  2. Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green

Aside from that, I like to play the "hot hands" every week; those players who have placed in the Top-10 or higher in recent tournament weeks, whenever possible.

Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't; however, I feel much more comfortable "wasting" a pick on a guy who finished well last week than some random shot in the proverbial dark.

Best Value

Brandt Snedeker ($10,300) might be the best value in the field. He's got eight top-10's this season including a win thanks to one of the Tour's most consistent putting strokes. He finished T12 at last week's PGA Championship, finishing fourth in Strokes Gained: Putting.

Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama are the highest-priced plays in the field at $10,900 each. While I don't see them as finishing high this week, neither will kill your $50,000 salary cap if you choose one or the other.

That being said, there are plenty of "higher value" options throughout the different tiers in the field.

Best of the Rest

  • Bill Haas ($9,600)
  • Webb Simpson ($9,500)
  • Will Wilcox ($8,400)
  • Austin Cook ($8,000)
  • Jason Dufner ($7,600)
  • Vaughn Taylor ($6,700)
  • William McGirt ($6,600)
  • Boo Weekley ($6,600)
  • Matt Every ($6,100)
