DraftKings Fantasy Golf Picks: Quicken Loans National

The PGA Tour moves into the home stretch this week with the Quicken Loans National, hosted by Tiger Woods.

With just two weeks left until the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, some of the games best are in the nation’s capital this week, trying to make a big splash before the years final major and the race to the FedEx Cup.

With that in mind, you’re focus this week should be on two types of players: Established stars and guys who are peaking. Here’s a look at who I’m relying on this week:

[fantasy-golf-tips]

Rickie Fowler – $11,700 – It seems like every year, the leaderboard at the Quicken Loans National is stacked. Without the top two players in the world in the field this week, the stage is set for Rickie Fowler to collect his third win of the year.

Fowler has proven he can win big tournaments — winning one with Tiger’s name on it is huge, and the next step towards becoming a major champion for Fowler. He’s as good an option for your anchor as anyone this week.

Justin Thomas – $10,000 – Here he is again — arguably the best player in the world without a PGA Tour win on his resume — Justin Thomas.

Thomas hasn’t won, but he’s been very good lately, nearly winning the Greenbrier a few weeks back. For guy who says he’s beaten the world No. 2 countless times in the past, you know he’s got the game – maybe he just needs a break. Thomas should be at or near the top of your list this week.

Johnson Wagner – $8,700 – Johnson Wagner hasn’t won in 92 starts, but he’s a multiple winner on Tour and knows how to get it done. The way he’s been playing lately, this could very well be the week Wagner breaks through again.

In his last three starts, Wagner has posted no finish worse than T-18 and snagged a top-5 at the John Deere Classic. He’s certainly tending in the right direction this week and he deserves a look.

Ollie Schniederjans – $7,700 – Folks who were surprised by the performance of Ollie Schniederjans at the Open Championship shouldn’t have been. The kid has some serious game and will be a force to be reckoned with — soon.

Schniederjans has been a solid fantasy choice the last two week and has just signed a deal with Callaway Golf. He’s got something to prove this week at the Quicken Loans National and I wouldn’t be shocked if he goes off in a big way this week.

Chesson Hadley – $6,100 – I haven’t been too impressed with Hadley over recent weeks, but when you spend money on the first three guys like I did here, sometimes you’ve got to take guys with track records over recent performance — and that’s what I’m doing here.

Hadley could breakthrough at any moment to pick up his first full FedEx Cup points paying event — but he could also shoot 65-77 and miss the cut. I’m just hoping that’s no going to happen…again.

Blayne Barber – $5,800 – Truth be told, I’m trying to catch lightening in a bottle here with Barber. There’s nothing spectacular that he’s done this year to earn the call here other than to do more than everyone else in the price range.

Barber did notch his fourth top-10 of the season two weeks ago at the Barbasol Classic, but didn’t play well at the Canadian Open. I’m really hoping he can bounce back this week.
