Intro to Yahoo! PGA DFS Strategy

Yahoo! DFS is coming and they’re offering some really interesting contests for PGA DFS. It’s definitely a similar game to what we’ve become accustomed to from other sites, but there are a few tweaks.

DRAFT PGA Best Ball – Strategy and Cheat Sheet

I’ve been participating non-stop in the new best ball format that DRAFT is offering. There are a million different layers to go through and this article will serve as somewhat of a living document from now until the Masters kicks off when the lobby will close.

PGA DFS: Top Plays, GPP Pivots, and Ownership Projections for The PLAYERS Championship

The PLAYERS Championship is being held once again at TPC Sawgrass – which, of course, is famous for the island green of the 17th hole. It’s a Pete-Dye-designed par 72 that plays right around 7,200 yards. Trouble abounds at Sawgrass with 88 bunkers and 17 water hazards, so finding accuracy will help. For more info on the course and trends, check out yesterday’s article. Checking The Chalk Tiger Woods ($10,500) is fresh off of a WD and is at an interesting price in a stacked field.
