Last week was a great one for my White Sulphur Springs team, all but one of whom finished the week, but none scoring enough points for me to earn any money, as I finished just 23 points away from the money, but nearly 400 places in the standings, showing just how tough it is to place high in the league.
Deere TPC, just 18 yards shorter than White Sulphur Springs at 7268, features a smaller roster of star players this week, so I focused first on accuracy of drives over 300 yards, and then skills hitting the green from 200-yards out.
I do have to say that my teams might not be finishing in the cash since I have looked more at the types of courses and then hitters followed by consistency on the tour, but my teams in general have been faring a ton better.
Remember that you can match up against me at the DraftKings Weekly Hybrid PGA.
Charley Hoffman ($9700): Hoffman leads the field off a pair of top-five finishes his last two tourneys along with an eighth-place finish at the Open. He's averaging 69.7 fantasy points per contest.
Charles Howell ($9000): Howell has not done anything particularly noteworthy on the tour this season, but he has made the cut all 11 tourneys he has entered. In this lesser field, he should seize the opportunity and finish well.
Kevin Streelman ($8800): Streelman ranks ninth in greens in regulation after 76 rounds, having moved up four slots since last week. He's 12-for-14 making the cut.
Robert Streb ($8700): A second-place finish last week at the Greenbrier is setting Streb up for a big week at the Deere, methinks.
Geoff Ogilvy ($7200): The Aussie is 10-for-16 playing all weekend and ranks sixth in greens in regulation from 200 yards out over his last 84 rounds.
Ryan Brehm ($6500): Brehm has made 11 of 14 cuts and has the highest percentage of drives over 300 yards, bagging 82 flying that distance over 126 tee shots.
Do remember to keep fantasy open and regulated and fair for all by writing your local lawmakers and tell them of your love of playing and desire to keep on playing. Visit the FSTA site for more information (and thanks).
