Alright Duff Daddies and Mamas, welcome back to another edition of Draftkings picks! For this week’s BMW Championship, I have compiled a great list of players that hopefully will make you some money! (But probably not because I suck at this).
Top Player to Avoid:
Dustin Johnson – S11,500: DJ is coming off of a DOMINATING performance at TPC Boston. Usually, people would look at this and say “you gotta pick him for this week!” My answer: no way no how. After his win at the Travellers this year, he missed the cut at The Memorial and withdrew from the 3M. I think DJ is a clear stay away this week.
Player who will blow your cap, but is worth it:
Bryson DeChambeau– $10,600: Bryson has done something that nobody else in the field has done on this track: win a Tournament. Bryson won the 2015 US Amateur here going away in a 7&6 over Derek Bard. The new big man will hope that his new physique will help him cement another victory on the North Course.
Great Value Picks:
Ryan Palmer – $7,600: Since missing back-to-back cuts at the Travelers and Workday, Palmer has made every cut and has 2 top-10s. He’s been a little up and down over the past few years, but I feel like he could have another great tournament.
Talor Gooch – $6,600: Gooch had a rough start to the COVID return, missing three out of the first four cuts. In his past four tournaments, he has three made cuts and two top-20s. I think this could be a week he continues this form, especially with his known fast starts.
Xander Schauffele just feels like he’s due in one of these tournaments. Daniel Berger looks to continue his top 20 streak to 9 out of his last 10 events, and judging by his past three starts I think he can do it. Kisner continues to show golf ain’t no hobby, and looks to have another top-5 finish, while the Harris English hopes he can continue his great season. Finally, Lanto Griffin and Talor Gooch are both value picks that have tremendous upside.
