My picks and lineup simply didn’t have it and we left an excessive amount of meat on the bone. That’s okay, although — it occurs. We’re again on the horse for a serious PGA DFS slate, which implies comfortable pricing, nice worth and a troublesome process to make the best picks.

DraftKings picks for The Masters PGA DFS lineup: High Performs
$10,000: Justin Thomas ($10,300) – Thomas is my decide to win The Masters, so this shouldn’t come as a shock to anybody. He’s been trending in direction of a win all 12 months however simply hasn’t gotten one. He’s additionally performed Augusta properly all through his profession, together with a fourth-place end in 2020. His ball-striking is elite proper now and I really like for him to interrupt by way of at a serious and win the second of his profession. So to get him close to the underside of this vary is just too good to go up. Additionally Think about: Jon Rahm ($10,800), Dustin Johnson ($10,500), Viktor Hovland ($10,100)
$9,000: Will Zalatoris ($9,200) – Keep in mind final 12 months when Will Zalatoris threatened to win and completed second in his debut? Me too. His ball-striking is ideal for what you should succeed at Augusta Nationwide Golf Membership. The putter is all the time a fear but it surely didn’t hinder him final 12 months. I really like for him to indicate up and do this and his pricing is favorable sufficient to make him my prime play within the $9K vary. Additionally contemplate: Cameron Smith ($9,900), Xander Schauffele ($9,600), Brooks Koepka ($9,400)
$8,000: Tyrrell Hatton ($8,000) – It’s time to provide Hatton his flowers for the way properly he’s taking part in proper now. He has 5 High 10 finishes in his final six worldwide begins and hasn’t completed worse than T21 in any of these outings. Whereas his historical past at Augusta isn’t nice, he did end T18 right here final 12 months. I like for him to construct on that in his present kind and the worth for that at this worth is excellent. Additionally contemplate: Louis Oosthuizen ($8,900), Shane Lowry ($8,800), Talor Gooch ($8,700), Adam Scott ($8,300), Joaquin Niemann ($8,200)
$7,000: Matt Fitzpatrick ($7,700) – Fitzpatrick has been taking part in in addition to anybody on this planet this 12 months, he simply doesn’t have the wins to indicate for it. His Masters showings up to now haven’t been something to jot down dwelling about however he’s additionally by no means been taking part in in addition to he’s proper now. He’s one in all BetSided’s Iain MacMillan’s winner picks, he’s one in all my place end picks and I really like him at this low worth. Additionally contemplate: Sergio Garcia ($7,800), Corey Conners ($7,600), Marc Leishman ($7,300), Seamus Energy ($7,200), Max Homa ($7,100), Robert Macintyre ($7,000)
$6,000: Gary Woodland ($6,900) – This pricing wouldn’t have you ever imagine it, however we’re beginning to see the nice Gary Woodland emerge once more. In three of his final 5 begins, he’s completed T8 or higher and had a T21 in there as properly. He’s driving the ball properly, his irons are returning to kind and he’s acquired a sport to play Augusta properly. At this worth, I really like him as an choice to assist in giving extra lineup flexibility. Additionally Think about: Brian Harman ($6,800), J.J. Spaun ($6,700), Bernhard Langer ($6,100)
DraftKings picks for The Masters PGA DFS lineup: High Fades
$10,000: Scottie Scheffler ($11,000) – Fading Scheffler this weekend has completely nothing to do along with his kind. Not solely has he gained three of his final 5 begins, however he’s completed High 20 in his two begins at Augusta. That is all about worth and lineup development. The truth that he’s the costliest participant on the slate in a area with comfortable pricing leads me to look elsewhere on this vary to reap the benefits of loaded $7K and $8K ranges extra successfully.
$9,000: Jordan Spieth ($9,800) – Look, I’ve Spieth as my High 20 decide however that ought to inform you why I’m not in on him to your DraftKings lineup. In his present kind, I feel his feels and data at The Masters offers him High 20 upside however nothing extra. So many different guys on this vary have profitable upside, which implies I’m simply not going to have him in any lineup. Fading Hideki Matsuyama along with his harm along with Bryson DeChambeau with the way in which he’s taking part in are extra bits of recommendation for this vary as properly, one thing Iain MacMillan on BetSided co-signs (along with Spieth).
$8,000: Tony Finau ($8,100) – Final week in Texas, we noticed the primary indicators of actual life from Tony Finau in fairly some time with a High 30 end. Now he involves a spot at Augusta the place he’s loved loads of success in his profession. With that stated, the development strains aren’t in his favor with three missed cuts in his final 5 begins. There are higher choices round him and I’m once more fading him this week.
$7,000: Webb Simpson ($7,500) – One other participant who has a fantastic historical past at The Masters, Simpson has been all out of kinds in his sporadic begins as a result of harm this 12 months, solely taking part in twice since mid-January with a missed minimize and a T48 to his identify. He doesn’t appear wholesome and I simply can’t purchase into him when there’s a lot worth within the $7K vary with that form of uncertainty.
The Masters: Greatest DraftKings golf lineup
- Justin Thomas ($10,300)
- Viktor Hovland ($10,100)
- Tyrrell Hatton ($8,000)
- Matt Fitzpatrick ($7,700)
- Robert Macintyre ($7,000)
- Gary Woodland ($6,900)
This lineup really makes me barely uncomfortable as I’m skipping the complete $9K vary and many of the $8K vary, however that really makes me prefer it a bit extra. So usually for majors with comfortable pricing, you take a look at your lineup and really feel nice — however so does everybody. You need to take some swings and pivots that others may not.
I really feel I’m doing that by rolling out my two favorites within the $10K vary in Thomas and Hovland after which discovering some high-upside worth within the decrease ranges. We already talked about Hatton, Fitzpatrick and Woodland however I really like Macintyre. He’s taking part in fairly properly this 12 months with three High 15 finishes worldwide in his final 4 begins and a T35 final week in San Antonio. After ending T12 right here a 12 months in the past, he’s a good way to spherical out this lineup.
