3M Open daily fantasy golf picks, sleepers, fades, strategy

first_imgI doubt very many DFS players will be thrilled to roster Tony Finau for a hefty price after three straight missed cuts, but he may be worth the risk. His recent struggles should keep his ownership very low, and he’s more than talented enough to do damage in this field. Finau is not a flash in the pan, having had plenty of success on the PGA Tour well before this season. Furthermore, Finau has only missed one other cut in 18 tries this season outside of this slump, not to mention three solo No. 2 finishes, an additional top-10 finish, and five other top-25s.While Finau may continue to slide, his track record suggests otherwise. Slumps don’t last forever, and I will side with his longterm results over one poor stretch. Finau is likely to fly completely under the radar this week due to a double dose of recency bias. That should lead to especially low ownership and particularly appealing leverage.Aaron White graduated from Northwestern University with a B.A. in Economics. He has played DFS professionally for several years and has won featured NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and golf GPPs on both FanDuel and DraftKings. After a surprising result at the Rocket Mortgage Classic last week, this week’s inaugural 3M Open presents a fantastic opportunity to pounce on inefficiencies created by recency bias.Last week featured not only a shocking winner in Nate Lashley, but also a finish in which none of the four runaway odds leaders placed in the top 10 — and only 1 in the top 25. Two of those four missed the cut, including Dustin Johnson, who was the odds leader by far at 15.4 percent. MORE ROTOQL: Lineup BuilderThe field for the 3M Open has a similar look to that of the Rocket Mortgage Classic, with a few elite golfers at the top followed by a steep dropoff. Due to the ineffectiveness of a strategy built around high-priced golfers last week, I think expensive premier golfers will see an unjustified dip in ownership this week due to recency bias.This can be leveraged by targeting a studs-and-duds approach, and investing heavily in some of the best golfers in the field.*If you are interested in taking your DFS golf lineup building strategy to the next level, you should consider using a lineup optimizer, and RotoQL offers the best optimizer available in the industry.3M Open picks and PGA DFS strategyTarget GolfersBrooks KoepkaIt’s hard to characterize a golfer who leads the field in odds as under the radar, but I don’t think Koepka will be as popular as he should be this week. With 11.8 percent odds, Koepka essentially fills the role Johnson played at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Given Johnson’s monumental flop, I think many DFS players will hesitate to roster the most expensive golfer available. Also working against Koepka is his tied-for-57th finish in his last tournament, the Travelers Championship.Of course, preceding that was a solo second-place at the U.S. Open. But given his price and his most recent result, one could dissuade players from using him. Ultimately, if Koepka is on his game, there’s no golfer in this field who can compete with him, even despite the presence of a few other stars. Koepka’s raw odds combined with lower-than-deserved ownership make him an unmatched play this week.Jason DayDay is one of the few other golfers in the field who’s in Koepka’s stratosphere, and yet I also anticipate lower ownership than what some may expect for him. At such a high price, Day will see slightly diminished interest due to recency bias — just like Koepka — despite having played quite well recently. However, what may keep Day’s ownership down even more is focus on alternatives in his price range. Hideki Matsuyama has been more consistent than Day and is priced similarly, while Bryson DeChambeau has been just as good and is cheaper.I expect both to carry more ownership than Day. With DFS players struggling to find cheap value plays, even options like Patrick Reed, who is certainly a step down from Day, could be higher-owned for no reason other than the discount he offers. Of the four runaway odds leaders in this week’s field, Day will likely be the least-owned. Leverage the opportunity and grab some exposure.Tony Finaulast_img read more
