PGA DFS Value Breakdown: John Deere Classic

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.

John Deere Classic

We have made it to the final leg of this new Midwest Swing, which has certainly resembled a series of Web.com Korn Ferry Tour events where scores of -25 and -21 have won the past two events. This week will be more of the same, but with a slight twist. This field is weak. How weak? There are only two players inside the Top 60 in the OWGR: Kyle Stanley (55) and Charles Howell III (56). It’s certainly an odd week for lineup construction with this field and these unusual prices, but don’t get in your own way with overthinking this talent/price ratio.

Although there aren’t any expensive “studs” to pay up for this week, with the lowest Vegas Odds for anyone being set at 18/1, there are still some really nice values to target. Let’s go ahead and dive into my top value plays for this week.
