2015 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open daily fantasy golf values and sleepers


Winning at daily fantasy golf is not easy, particularly in tournaments with a lot of entries, including this week's DraftKings $200,000 event for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. There will be almost 76,600 entries, and just one will take home the $15,000 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. That means you need to find value in players -- especially those around $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 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open contest:

1. Jhonattan Vegas ($6,900) -- Jhonny Vegas came up short of regaining PGA Tour status through the Web.com Tour Finals but enjoyed a top-10 finish on a sponsor's exemption at the Frys.com Open. Gets him in here, where he's 3-for-3 in cashes.

2. Andrew Loupe ($6,800) -- Loupe won during the Web.com Tour Finals and finished T-10 at Frys. Making a Vegas debut.

3. Pat Perez ($6,600) -- Perez is an all-or-nothing guy in Sin City. In three of his last four starts here, however, he's finished inside the top 30.

Our picks last week almost worked, but came up short:

1. Tom Hoge ($7,000) -- MC by three shots.

2. John Peterson ($6,600) -- Good opening 71, then tanked in the middle of the second round to miss the cut.

3. Steve Marino ($6,100) -- MC by four shots.
