Valero Texas Open DFS Lineup Tips
The pro’s of the PGA will head to San Antonio, Texas this week for the Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio’s (Oak Course). There are several really big DFS tournaments available this week for GPP’s and Cash Game 50/50’s. This article is based strictly on the DFS salaries at FanDuel and FantasyDraft. Let’s take a look at the players that we recommend you considering for your PGA DFS Lineups for the Valero Texas Open.
Charley Hoffman is pricey this week but I still think he is a decent value. He has really good course history at TPC San Antonio and has been in decent form making the cut in each of his last 3 tournaments. Hoffman is one of my top DFS plays this week.
List is due for a win and at a bare minimum, he will finish top 10. I fully expect List to compete for the win here at the Valero Texas Open. He is on top of his game right now and has come close on several occasions to pulling off the win. This may be the event that he cracks open the champagne and soaks up the victory!
Palmer is coming into the Valero Texas Open with a 6th, 4th and 6th place finish at TPC San Antonio in his last 3 years playing here. In his last 8 years in this tournament, he has only missed the cut one time and that was way back in 2011. Palmer has 5 top 20 finishes here and should be highly considered in your DFS Lineups.
Hadley keeps improving each week and could shock some people this week if he pulls off a winner at the Valero Texas Open. He finished in 49th place 3 weeks ago, 18th place 2 weeks ago and 7th place last week at the RBC Heritage. He has improved each week for three weeks straight and if that continues this week, you will want him in your lineups.
Lovemark is another golfer that has been playing well enough to make the cuts and is reliable enough to throw in most lineups and be safe. He is great for cash game lineups. He has made the cut in 6 straight tournaments and my only fear is that he will come in highly owned. That being said, I still like him and will play him in several lineups this week.
Paisley will be returning from a 6 week absence from the golf course and I was following him prior to his hiatus from golf. This guy is pretty good and as you all know, as we said with Kodaira a few weeks back, we have been pretty on the mark with these longshots. I really like Paisley and think we could see him take home the crown on one of these lower level tournaments.
Piercy is boom or bust so I recommend playing him in GPP’s. He has played in 9 tournaments this year and has hit top 20 in nearly half of those tournaments. He is coming in off a 16th place finish at the RBC Heritage and has made the cut in 3 straight. I won’t go all in on Piercy but I will definitely have him in some of my lineups to save money in those GPP’s.
Aaron Baddeley has really good course history at TPC San Antonio. He has played here six times since 2010 and has never missed the cut. His best finish was in 2010 when he finished in 3rd place and last year when he came 5th, both times as heavy underdogs. Baddeley is again being overlooked this year and should play well again at a decent price.
If you are looking for some cheap value to pay up for some more expensive guys, take a look at Abraham Ancer. Ancer has placed in 8th, 13th and 16th in his last three tournaments overall so his form is decent. I expect Ancer to place top 15 this week and at that number, he will pay off his salary without any problems.
