PGA DFS: Farmers Insurance Open – Expected Birdies

We spent a weekend at the three-course rotation of the American Express out in La Quinta, Calfironia. Now we’re playing just two tracks here. The Farmers Insurance Open is played at Torrey Pines Golf Course. There are two courses the golfers will be tasked with playing. Each golfer will get one crack at the North course before the weekend, which is significantly shorter — and easier. Each golfer that makes the cut will also get three cracks at the South course. If you want to see an in-depth breakdown of the courses, check out last year’s preview article.  Expected Birdies…...

Tony Finau and the Long-Awaited Trophy: The American Express PGA DFS Breakdown

We have a three-course rotation for the first time this PGA DFS season. The American Express is played on La Quinta Country Club, Nicklaus Tournament Course, and the Stadium Course. Each of the golfers in the field will get a crack at each course before playing the Stadium Course for a second time in the final round. That means 54 holes from each guy that you roster even if they go on to miss the cut. Yesterday, I unveiled Expected Birdies which is a metric I’ve been working on for the past few months. Today, we’ll be looking at a…...

When $12,000 Isn’t Enough … The Justin Thomas Story: Sony Open PGA DFS Breakdown

Waialae CC is playing host to the Sony Open once again this year. It is a Par 70 that plays about 7,000 yards. Last year, I broke down the course from a statistical perspective and yesterday I unveiled proximity predictions for Waialae as our new preview format.  Buy Or Sell The big question is whether or not Justin Thomas ($12,000) can pay off his salary this week. It feels like people are forgetting just how good Thomas has been over the last few years because of a “lackluster” 2019. Since the start of 2017, he’s made 72 starts. Over that…...

Sony Open Proximity Predictions – PGA DFS

Our PGA DFS season is continuing with the Sony Open in Waialae Country Club. Waialae is a Par 70 that plays a bit over 7,000 yards. If you’re interested in the typical course preview, you can check out last year’s version but we’re switching it up this year. One of the ways we (attempt to) identify who’s going to do well at a given course is by looking at the proximity of approach shots at that course. We check “how the course plays” by looking at historical examples of where those approach shots come from and we try and identify…...

Jon Rahm Has His Sights Set on 2020: Sentry Tournament of Champions Preview

We are back for another season of PGA DFS. This week, the Tour kicks things off with the Tournament of Champions by heading to the Plantation Course at Kapalua. If you want an in-depth look at how the course has played in the past, check out last year’s course preview.  Checking the Chalk Trying to parse out ownership in small fields like this is usually a fool’s errand. There may be a golfer or two that go very high-owned and a couple that goes very low-owned, but everyone in between is typically bunched up pretty tightly.  These tournaments provide plenty…...

DK Buffet Week 17: 15 Key Stats for the Main Slate on DraftKings

When I’m looking into the DFS slate each week, I like to go game by game and identify players or situations that intrigue me. In every game, on every team, there’s a situation that’s relevant for DFS purposes, for either a positive or negative reason. These situations inform us of how we should be attacking each slate. Arizona Cardinals Spread: +7 @ Los Angeles Rams | Total: 49 Kyler Murray ($5,500) and the Cardinals don’t have any playoff implications in their game this weekend. His rushing output has been up and down all year and that hasn’t changed since the…...
