PGA DFS Tips and Picks for BMW Championship
The 3rd round of the FedEx Cup Championships tee’s off this week with the BMW Championship from Conway Farms Golf Course in Lake Forest, Illinois. This will be the final DFS lineup construction article for the PGA in the season as next week, there is no DFS with only 30 golfers making it through this round.
There is no cut this week because there are only 70 golfers starting the tournament, therefore its very important to try to get some golfers that will finish at the top of the list of golfers. Ideally you will have the winner in your lineups and possibly 2nd or 3rd if you want to cash.
Spieth finished 2nd two weeks ago at the Dell Technologies Championship and 2nd at the Northern Trust the week before that. He is at the top of his game and sets up really nice for this course. He is #2 on tour in Strokes Gained: Tee To Green, #1 in Strokes Gained: Approach and 4th Greens In Reg. He isn’t cheap but has a legit chance to win this week!
Fowler was discussed in our handicapping article and I highly suggest you take a look at who we are playing this week in that article to give you a more detailed layout of what we are thinking. Fowler has improved both times he played here, finishing 39th in 2013 and 4th in 2015. Fowler may fly under the radar this week in DFS because he sliced between Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas, both of which should be highly owned.
Day comes in a tad bit cheaper than Fowler but is my favorite play this week. I expect he will be highly owned due to his course history and being a previous winner but I still like him. Day has been playing well lately and I expect a decent showing from him at a familiar course.
Casey really isn’t much cheaper than Day and Fowler but the way we break down our players, he falls to the mid tier. Casey has been Mr. Reliable this year, finishing in the top 5 in 4 out of the last 6 tournaments and his lowest finish in those 6 tournament’s being a 13th place finish at the PGA Championships.
Berger’s approach game is really good and he sets up to do well this week. He played here in 2015 and finished 2nd to Jason Day. He will go low owned this week because he burned some people at Dell Championships. Find a way to slide him in your lineup!
Gary Woodland will come up under owned this week as he burned some people 2 weeks back at the Northern Trust. He probably isn’t going to win this tournament but he will contend and is cheap enough to save you some money to pick up some bigger names.
You are going to get some softer priced guys in your lineup this week if you want to have any chance at forming a competitive lineup. Bradley fits that mold coming in competitively priced on Fanduel and Fantasy Draft.
I think Xander will have a nice tournament this week and he is cheap enough to help save you money. He isn’t going to cost you a DFS game even on his worst day!
We are staying with the Approach game and Stanley’s approach is great! He is 8th on tour in Strokes Gained: Approach and is #1 in Greens in Reg. He is dirt cheap and should be in a decent amount of your lineups.
