Alright Duff Daddies and Mamas, welcome back to another edition of the Duffin’ Up Daily Fantasy picks! For the Sanderson Farms 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:
Scottie Scheffler- $ 11,400: The reigning PGA Tour Rookie of the Year finished T16 at the Sanderson Farms last year, and had a fantastic year last year. However, he is just coming off his COVID-19 quarantine. He would have to win the tournament in order to have this pick make sense, and I don’t see that happening.
High-Salary Player that is worth it:
Will Zalatoris- $10,200: He’s 2 for 2 on made cuts, and 2 for 2 on Top 10s. Can he continue this fine form? I think he can, but this is one of the biggest gambles I have ever put on this list, but I think he could make it 3 for 3 this week!
Great Value Picks:
J.B. Holmes- $7,000: Prior to the Pandemic, JB Holmes was having a fantastic year, making 7 out of 9 cuts. He made the cut at the Safeway Open a few weeks back, so if you need a guy who makes cuts, this is your man!
Adam Schenk- $6,700: Schenk has made 8 straight cuts, and has finished in the top 40 in his last 2 starts at the Sanderson Farms. This has a Lanto Griffin vibe of being incredibly underrated.
Sam Burns has made 3 out of his last 4 cuts and has a pretty good record here in Mississippi, having a top 5 here in 2018. Doc Redman has finished 2 out of his last three tournaments in third, and he is quickly becoming a main player on the PGA Tour. Carlos Ortiz has finished in the top 5 for the past 2 years at this tournament, and Chesson Hadley finished 2nd here in 2018. Finally, Brian Stuard has made 3 out of his last 4 cuts, and Adam Schenk is one of my awesome value picks.
