    Thank you for this BIF. I always use gift cards to reload as I only have one card and don’t want to risk anything happening to it. I didn’t know I would have to chat with DK to make a W/D. I always wondered about that, but haven’t had to worry as I don’t have enough in my account to make it worth it.

    you can always use paypal to deposit into DFS account, and load it from bank account or credit card. But it depends if paypal has the same worry of risk for you.

    The key here is Sunday. You have to think of what a hypothetical field will look on Sunday with Laird, Koepka, DJ, Brian Gay and say William McGirt. Which one of those guys needs to absolutely win to make it to the next round? Which one can keep his powder dry for another week? I have a pretty good feeling that Koepka will make the cut. However I have some doubts that he will be going hard on Sunday. Certainly not as hard as Dirt McGirt will be if he’s in the Top 5. McGirt won’t be playing next week unless he wins it. And at that price, do you want a guy that can afford to take it easy on Sunday?

    This is still a regular tournament with 1 million plus for the winner so why would anyone be playing and content with taking it easy Sunday because they are already qualified for next week? A win by any of the top guys pretty much locks them into a top 5 spot which is huge going into the tour championship so you would think they would have just as much motivation as any one to try and win Sunday and get themselves locked into the top 5.

    I think I finally figured out the right tweak that made my main lineup finally come together. Still working on some of the extra DTG lineups but I am now happy where I’ve landed after really having trouble making things fit.

    I am now open to answer specific questions if anyone has any (apart from just naming off my lineup) regarding type of golfer or factors I ended up using. Who knows if it’ll be right but I’m hoping I can keep the heater going for 2 more weeks. Gonna try to win some big money this week and trying to lock up a few more tickets for the $888 next week cause I really want to try to take that one down since I’ll be attending the tourney

    Hey Dunzor, what do you think of my unhealthy desire to play trash can Si Woo Kim again? Should I seek help?

    Yeah I know I could use paypal, but it carrys the same worry of risk for me because I got scammed once through paypal, thankfully it was a visa gift card I loaded on there when it happened and was a small amount, but still got scammed. Then my boss at my work got her identity stolen through a series of transactions she made and some were made using paypal. So there is some risk for me, but these were years ago and I know paypal has really tightened up since then and I may consider going back to them.

    Anyways, back to golf, Fatrick seems to fit into a lot of my lineups. So, as of now I have a high percentage of my lineups with Fatrick in it. He has only tourney here for CH and finished 9th. He does seem to have the game that could do well here.

    Yes you should seek help. He’s played way too many weeks in a row, and this is not the right course fit for him. Last week lined up really well for his skill set (short course, bermuda greens) but this week is basically the opposite, so I would suggest staying far away. He’s been an enigma for his career so far so he could always decide to randomly crush it any week, but all signs point to it not being this week

    Listening to Brooks Koepka’s press conference and I’m now going 100% on him. Dude seems locked in and highly motivated.

    Is there a way we can follow how you guys are doing? Will it show up on the live tournaments page?

    I believe it should be listed among the live contests once things get going tomorrow so I think you’ll be able to see the standings

    Awesome. Thanks. Good luck to you guys. Would love to see one of us take it down.

    Good luck!

    My lineup is set (threw around a bunch of ideas with fellow forum-goer Felixx). No planned tinkering at this point.

    Got some more research done and is anybody planning on kicking the tires on Jimmy Walker? I like him here but not great but compared to some other choices yes.

    I might only roll 3 lineups this week. Don’t have enough time to plug in the lineups I want. We’ll see how this goes and if I cve and still throw 20 of very “similar” lineups together. Should be some quick pivots right?

  • TrustinthePlan

    Guys I am considering who are on the outside of the top 100 looking to play well this week to get in:
    1) Werenski, 1 position out, and does well on Poa historically as thats what he grew up on, but struggled this year.
    2) Danny Lee – something about this course setup screams that Danny could have a good week
    3) HV3 – definitely a guy that loves the tighter courses it seems
    4) Party Marty – good course history here and setup seems right for him
    5) Nick Taylor – shot a 63 last week to sneak in and could ride the momentum, course sets up well I think for his game if he can keep the ball in the fairway

    That’s my .02 on who I am considering of the players outside the top 100 that I think will get in to play next week.

    Yup a few years back – just remember you did that if/when you want to take a WD as most don’t allow refunds made to them.

    Just make the deposit then email/chat with DK support and have them remove that card from your account (as you won’t use it again and can’t accept a refund/payout). Then when you do make a WD, you won’t have DK try to send money somewhere you don’t have access to.

    Tell them it is a non reloadable gift card so just remove it from your account and they will

    Great info, thanks

    Do we like Billy Ho? Nothing in his stats really wow me, but recent form and a gut feel (which is usually wrong) have him in 50% of my lineups.

    Have quite a bit of Lee and Werenski as well
