We are here at last. The FedEx Cup finale is upon us. Thanks for the WD last week Mr. Furyk! Way to ruin many lineups. Oh well, Jim has earned me some victories over the years so I guess I have to take my losses in stride as well.
With only 30 golfers left, and it is probably down to the top 5 in all reality, there are not many guys to pick from. The key will be balancing your salary and trying to get a little lucky by picking the right golfer. Player pick percentages will be hovering around 60% for stars and 30 – 40 % for guys who normally did not get much action.
Here are the preliminary expert picks for the week. Later, my official DraftKings lineup for the Tour Championship will be posted. Depending on salaries, obviously you will not be able to snag all of these fantasy picks below.
- Rickie Fowler – Yes, I did not pick Day or Spieth. I think Fowler still has a chip on his shoulder and this would be the way to prove to everyone that his name should be mentioned with the other big boys.
- Henrik Stenson – He has won this before and is in 4th place now. Do not overlook Henrik who hits some of the crispest irons in the game today. Playing great of late as well.
- Justin Rose – He books top 10’s here like it is his job. Wait… it is his job. But anyway, Rose was very close to winning another major this year and loves this venue.
- Bill Haas – He will be a great value play who wants to be on top of his game before the Presidents Cup. He will have something to prove since his dad Jay is the Captain. Still, Bill earned his spot with his solid play over the summer.
Stay tuned to a follow up once the specific salaries get posted via DraftKings. With a limited field, any extra tidbit of information can really be of good use.
