    Sorry but pricing on DK this week looks horrific. Way too soft. I love their PGA product but wish they would get better pricing on these bigger events.

  • elmore0631

    The pricing is very soft.. looks like you’ll be able to fit whoever you want into a lineup.

    Jimmy Walker at 7,600 is wild given how he has been priced all summer.

  • rotoryan

    Oh my these upper mid range and mid range prices are super soft. Going to make cash games difficult this week in my opinion.

    He stuck out to me as well but current form is a bit of a concern in my mind…he was T18 at Plainfield in 2011.

    Not saying he is a good pick, just saying his ownership will be rather high at that price.

    Gotcha! Yea, probably 18-22% if I had to guess.

    New to the PGA playoffs, how many total golfers? Is there a cut? Do Golfers play more or less aggressive because of the format? Do Golfers at the very top have an advantage going into week 2?

  • JSteele

    Swafford is the bubble guy this week at 100th place in the FedEx standings

  • hokie2009

    Sooooooooooo soft ….

    Not pleased.

  • flip4flop

    Ugh another soft week. Will end up going light this week I guess and GPP only.

    125, yes there is a cut at 70 and ties.

    Only top 100 get in next week, so those at the top are guaranteed to move on (why many like Rory, Sergio, are skipping this week)

    Next week is 100 with a cut at 70 again.

    Top 70 after next week make it to week 3 with no cut.

    Top 30 after week 3 make it to week 4 again no cut.

    Points are still cumulative throughout so those at the top are always advantaged, but they do something odd with the points that makes it less of an advantage as time goes on, I don’t know enough about how the system works to explain

    If I recall correctly and they haven’t changed it, when they get to the last tourney (top 30), anyone in the top 5 that wins the tourney becomes the auto champion, anyone outside top 5 needs help to win.

    Fedex points are worth double during the playoffs, so golfers can easily make moves up and down the list with good/bad play – that’s the “something special with the points” I think you were referring to.

  • hokie2009

    So what is everyone’s consensus on what the “soft pricing” means for strategy / bankroll management this week?

    Are people speculating that there will be high overlap, and if so, how does that affect your play?

    Or is the issue that it devolves into kind of a pick-em? And if so, how does that affect your play?

    I think there are several ways to slice it. I’m interested to know what everyone else thinks.

    With the reduced cut and soft pricing I am going to have a lot better chance of getting 6/6 than normal, but so will everybody else. That said, at the PGA, I had 35 of my 50 milly maker teams (70%) get 6/6 and pretty much got swept because I played Bubba and not Day.

    So even if we’re looking at 20%+ of the field getting 6/6 teams through … I like my chances to do better than that. So I still have an edge. Right? I’m going on 8 weeks+ straight getting considerably more teams through at 6/6 than the field in GPPs, but I don’t win every week, obviously.

    So what does the soft pricing mean to you as far as strategy this week?

  • ASmithIV

    I’m so biased towards JT.

    Don’t care.

    Roll Tide.

    Who is going back to the well with Mats?

    I was hoping for cheaper, but he’ll still be in my lineups.

  • ninerzfan8

    Soft pricing strategy, play gpps and play guys who are off recently and you think can turn it around as well as those who are pivots from guys who will be super owned.

    Doing no research so far that would be

    Matsuyama off a mc
    Stenson pivot from koepka off a quiet Pga champ.
    Jimmy Walker pivot from streb, lee, ling mirth
    Horschel after last week.

    I actually don’t like any of these guys after the last few weeks but day, koepka,Lee, streb, finau, etc is just a recipe for a min cash unless you hit it perfect.

    Cash games, play day, koepka, streb, finau, Lee and hope your 5900 guy beats theirs

  • KJP24

    Wow you can really make an all star lineup pretty cheap. What’s the catch? Are some of these guys potential withdraws?

    Soft pricing makes me not love playing cash as it takes so much of the skill out of this. Anyone can make a good lineup this week based solely off name recognition.

    With this pricing, I will only get involved in GPPs, go heavy on who I think will win even if they are 30% owned and try and separate with my low/mid priced plays.

    Wrong. It guarantees Day/Spieth will be 30+% owned. Why not up them to like 13k+ a piece and make some more challenging decisions.

    I mean Zach Johnson with 9 top 10s this year, open champion and a deadly iron game at 8100? It makes no sense. He should be closer to 10k to make it a tough decision on whether to play him.

  • noddy

    No way Spieth and Day are each 30% owned. No way.
