    What would be smarter to do? Put 3 lineups in the $33 contest or 33 lineups in the $3 contest? I’m only concerned about trying to finish in first place

    I would do 1 lineup in the 33 and 22 lineups in the 3. Pick your favorite GPP lineup for the 33 and also put that same entry in the 3 dollar GPP. So 22 unique lineups.

    Or manipulating to see if you have it in you to leave 1k or more on the table.

    I do not see how DK benefits or really cares how much we leave on the table. jmo

    I dont understand why week after week people saying this is to low. Be happy, someone you want is low priced, you found value. With that said, Ive only played DFS golf for 6 months, You will only get a headache trying to figure DK out. Dont. what a guy is priced on DK is only a joke in the locker room of the golf tour. It doesnt mean anything unless you like the 6 highest priced guys and you cant make a LU.

    I agree for the most part but this pricing is by far the steangest ive ever seen. I dont really think its a bad thing just going to have to adjust to it. You can basically play any lineup you want, lots of room to be creative.

    Am I seeing correctly on FantasyLabs that Rahm was $3500 here last year and put up 98 points? Did they really price guys that low at one point?

    I’m really not a fan of this week’s pricing at all. There seems to be no rhyme or reason and/or consistency to the pricing week to week. Strange.

    No that is a mistake. Never priced that low, and he didnt even play the event last year.

  • amen0037

    The pricing is actually quite fun. You can deploy so many different strats this week. Harrington is going to be interesting to see what he is owned.

    He finished in 5th in 2015. Didn’t play last year.

    The cheapest I ever saw in DK was 5500 and that is like the US Open or Open Championship. normal low is 6k and maybe a hundred or two less.

    I agree, The tour is so deep and this type of pricing allows you to get very creative. I wouldn’t get too wrapped up in maxing out your salary. Several winning lineups can be made in the 45000 to 48000 range. At least that is what I am finding out as I get into my research. Gonna be a fun year.

    My bad, meant, 2015, but a quick Google search turned up this article ( http://rotoexperts.com/88581/daily-fantasy-golf-waste-management-draftkings-betting-strategy/ ) and they have Hadwin listed at $4100 so maybe Rahm was indeed $3500, also looks as if Bubba was $14300

    It’s funny, I don’t care about pricing until I try to make lineups. I do the bulk of my pre-work on Sunday as 99% of the field is available and known. I circle all the guys I’m interested in on Sunday in absence of prices that way price doesn’t influence me.

    I don’t usually build lineups until Tuesday night (usually because of Monday Night Football and my Monday golf league) so that is the first time I care about price as I narrow down my core top owned guys with desired percentages.

    If I like a guy and he is higher priced than I like, I may scale back some ownership but not get off the guy. If he is cheaper, of course that is a bonus.

    That’s essentially what I do. There are some guys I liked before the salaries came out that are priced in the 6600 to 7000 range.

    This scares me. It has a very slim chance of happening, but I’d be scared that one of my $3 lineups would have won the $33 contest. I’d be afraid I’d enter the wrong lineup in the $33. Probably silly, but that’s me

  • MattNielsen89

    I hate weeks like this in NFL. LOVE every LU you make, always seems to be those weeks that are the worst lol. Maybe it’ll be different in PGA.

  • noddy

    I don’t understand people complaining about pricing. Most complain that the pricing is too easy or some players are too low. Like I said last week then it should be easy to put together that winning lineup. Do it and show it to us this weekend.

  • MattNielsen89

    People complain because it takes away any edge that there is perceived to be in building LU with tighter pricing.

    Well I don’t believe in that. Last week all I heard was how easy it was to fit DJ and/or Day. Well how did that work out? I know someone is going to say that it normally doesn’t happen they both missed the cut. With the way salaries are you can make many more lineups you like and that is all DK cares about.

  • JimKronlund

    I said it last week and it came true and I’ll say it this week and every week until after The Masters.
    The winning line up will look odd. A few low level salaried players will pop to the top. Example CT Pan/JJ Spaun both under 1% owned. I would focus on the players individually and only when forming certain teams would salaries become relevant. Maxing out salaries is even less relevant this week. I feel that using certain stats is more important this week than previous weeks. Especially the direction and the pattern that players are trending is critical. If memory serves weather was terrible last year so course history decisions should reflect that.
    Always just IMO

    Always a lot of first time winners come out of the Cali/Florida swings. Nothing unusual there but I can’t recall a time where the tour was deeper or more talented then it has been the past couple of years. Amazing young talent and winning on this tour is as hard as it ever has been. This is a direct result of Tiger blowing this sports popularity higher than ever before. Great time if your a golf nut.

  • noddy

    I try to pick players that are trending in right direction. Last week I went with Grillo. He hadn’t missed a cut since May. Prior to that it was Walker who had been playing well and had great course history. Well he missed the cut. Also this week Martin Laird. He had 2 top 10’s this season and one missed cut since June of last year. Well we know what happened to him. I like picking golfers that are playing well, but so far it is not working.

  • amen0037

    Golf has the widest range of outcomes out of any of the other sports. The odds of the 3rd string qb throwing for 300 yards and 3tds are almost non existent, but a the lowest priced golfer in the field could win the event like CT Pan almost did. I think DFS golf would continue to grow in popularity if most weeks were priced like this week. More people can fit in the big names that they like to cheer for and grinders can find those unique lower owned guys that can produce.
    Last week was not a rare occurrence that many of the big names missed the cut. Look back at the past 5 years and the story is the same at Torrey. Its a hard golf course that you need to have your game otherwise you’re slamming the trunk Friday afternoon.
    Anyone can miss the cut and anyone can win a golf tournament. That’s the beauty of golf!
