Top-ranked grinder, Notorious, breaks down his favorite daily fantasy golf plays at various salary ranges for the coming week’s golf tournament. Who should you be building around? Find out below.


If you have been reading my article over the last couple of years, you know I like to be transparent about my results. The Shriners Open was the first tournament in my DFS history where I bricked every single slate. A bad weekend kept my main lineup from cashing and I was unable to cash in any of the showdown slates (including a couple of the late round slates). I’d love to say I learned something from the drumming that I took last week, but that was not the case. Everyone is going to have bad weeks. The key is to dust yourself off, stick to your process, and not chase your losses. I for one, am ready to turn the page to this week.
