PGA DFS Value Breakdown: Farmers Insurance Open

Selecting the absolute best value out there is crucial to cruising to the top of the leaderboards. Drew “redkacheek” Mathews, the 2018 DraftKings Masters Millionaire Maker winner, will dive into the player pool, picking out his favorite value options for the week’s tournament.

Farmers Insurance Open

Welcome back Grinders! I think I can safely say we crushed last week with the right strategy targeting those values that allow us to create unique, yet high ceiling lineups. Although we do get a course rotation this week (only 2 courses, and only a few more events like this remaining this season), the strategy for such a tougher event changes our focus quite a bit. Luckily this is a big, relatively strong field, so we don’t need to dip into the 6k range for some sleepers.

In Cash and SE builds, the proper avenue is most certainly balanced to ensure higher cut equity, but don’t be afraid to include some low exposures to cheap players in GPPs to get the low owned studs like Rahm and Rory. This week, considering the ideal lineup construction, I will look through the mid-value plays to see who we can target due to recent form, birdie-bogey ration, EAP data or any such combo. Let’s get to it!
