Winning at daily fantasy golf is not easy, particularly in tournaments with a lot of entries, including this week’s DraftKings $700,000 event for the BMWChampionship. There will be almost 269,000 entries, and just one will take home the $100,000 first-place prize.
Getting the winner is essential to winning at daily fantasy golf and finding another player in the top five will carry your entry a lot way. However, to have any chance at the big money, you’ll need all six players to have a great week since this is a no-cut event. That means you need to find value in players — especially those under $7,000 — with lower salaries in a salary-cap contest, like the ones on DraftKings.
With that in mind, and a limited inventory this week, here are some sleepers we see in the DraftKings BMW Championship contest:
1. Daniel Berger ($6,800) — Berger had missed seven cuts in a row before a T-12 finish at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Hopefully that’s his slumpbuster.
2. Cameron Tringale ($6,800) — Tringale has two modest playoff finishes and has made four of his last five cuts. You’re only picking him if you load up on big-money players.
3. Bryce Molder ($6,800) — Molder missed the cut at TPC Boston, which ended a streak of six consecutive cuts made, including two top-11 finishes.
And, before we go, let’s audit our Deutsche Bank Championship sleepers:
1. John Senden — T-33
2. Carl Pettersson — T-44
3. George McNeill — MC
