Draftkings Picks: The Northern Trust

Alright ladies and gents, welcome back to another edition of Draftkings picks! For this week’s Northern Trust, I have compiled a great list of players that hopefully will make you some money! (But probably not because I suck at this).

Top guys to avoid
Rory McIlroy – $10,900
I am going to be honest with you: I am a HUGE Rory fanboy. I wrote an article yesterday about Rory coming to defend his title and I absolutely love it. The only issue is that he is hurt, like very, very hurt. I’m shocked he is playing and though he will compete, I don’t think he is in the best shape to win. And the only reason you get the high-priced guys is so they win and you make bank. So unfortunately for my good friend Rory, I am out on him.

Guy Who will blow your cap but is worth it

Rickie Fowler – $11,500
Rick is due: guys, I really mean it this time. Rickie is out here watching all of his friends win majors and get paid throughout the year. Now, its his time. I think Rickie is going to go absolutely bananas at the Glen Oaks Golf Club this week, putting up birds all over the place. I really want Rickie to do well this tournament so he can set himself up for a great FedEx Cup run, and I think that is exactly what he will do this week.

Great value picks 
Tony Finau – $7,300

Another week goes by, another disrespectful salary put on Tony Finau. This guy continues to make cuts, finish strong, and have good tournaments, but is priced at an around-the-cut guy. Well if you’re going to price him there, I am going to take him! Finau hasn’t missed a cut since May and has 6 top 10s on the year. He’s been one of the most consistent players on tour this year, and this price is absolutely amazing.

Gary Woodland – $7,000

This surprised me a lot, as Woodland has been another very consistent guy this year. He hasn’t missed a cut since the Masters, he has had a good last few tournaments, and he has 4 top 10s on the year. It looks like he is ready to make a great splash this weekend and continue his good form. 


Gotta keep the hot hand in the team with the very affordable Ollie Schniederjans. He has been absolutely killing it lately, and is once again a great value. I put both of my good value picks in the lineup as I believe both of them are due for another top 10 finish. Jamie Lovemark and John Rahm have both had great years, so hopefully they can continue their form. Finally, Rickie Fowler leading up the front with a hopeful win!
