Rickie Fowler ($11,500)
After winning the Hero World Challenge at the end of Nov. 2017 and then tying for fourth in the first tournament of 2018, Rickie Fowler has been a bit inconsistent as of late. He’s made the cut in just three of the five tournaments he’s played since then. However, it’s worth noting that he’s also finished in the top 15 in two of those tournaments. So we know how good he can be, but it’s hard to say what Fowler we’ll see.
Justin Rose ($11,400)
The run that Justin Rose has been on so far this season is just ridiculous. He won back-to-back tournaments in late October/early Novermber to start the year. Since then, he’s rattled off 10-straight made cuts and six more top-10 finishes. That includes back-to-back top-five finishes the last two times that he’s played. He’s arguably the hottest golfer in the world right now, and could be worth his steep price because of that.
Jordan Spieth ($11,100)
After being eliminated in the group stage of the Match Play tournament, Jordan Spieth’s season continues to be marred by shockingly shaky putting and overall inconsistency. Yes, he has five top-20 finishes in the 2018 calendar year, as well as two top-10 finishes. However, he’s also been cut twice, not including match play. He’s risky at this point.
Henrik Stenson ($10,500)
When he was cut at the Valspar Championship, it appeared that Henrik Stenson’s hot start to this season might be coming to a close. Of course, he followed that up by finishing fourth at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Put simply, he’s been n the top 10 in three of the last five tournaments. He’s been money, and could be the same on DraftKings.
Phil Mickelson ($10,200)
No one tell Phil Mickelson that he’s past his prime, because Lefty has been tearing it up this season, especially in his last four tournaments. He was cut at the CareerBuilder Challenge, then finished T45 at the Farmers Insurance Open. Since then, his worst finish was a T6 at the Genesis Open, and he won the last time he played at the WGC-Mexico Championship. You have to like Mickelson here.
