Daily Fantasy Golf Picks: RBC Heritage
Bryson DeChambeau ($10,700)
It’d be hard to argue against DeChambeau if you watched last weekend at Colonial. The 26-year old is bombing it off the tee after bulking up for the season, and came inches from sinking a birdie putt on 18 to make it a three-way playoff Sunday. He will be an extremely popular pick and is the third highest-priced player this week for good reason, he has two top-five finishes in his four appearances at the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town.
Collin Morikawa ($10,000)
Speaking of impressing last weekend, Collin Morikawa did everything right in the Charles Schwab Challenge until holes 72 and 73, missing two makeable putts to finish in second after a one-hole playoff with Daniel Berger. The 23-year old Morikawa now has four top-ten finishes on the year. He’s 3rd on the Tour this season in Holes per Eagle and has shown every ability to go low. I expect a bounce back from Morikawa and another Sunday in contention.
Webb Simpson ($9,000)
Even after missing the cut at Colonial, Webb Simpson is a must play this weekend. Simpson is playing some of the best golf in the world right now with a win and four top-10 finishes in six events. He’s 2nd on The Tour in scoring average and birdie average and 6th in Fed Ex Cup Points. He’s too consistent of a golfer to pass up this weekend, especially with two top-5 finishes in the past at RBC Heritage.
Kevin Kisner ($7,700)
Kevin Kisner is not only a good value play with potential to finish top 25 this weekend, I think he could make a run at winning, too. He already has three top-10 finishes on the year and looked good last week. He came in 2nd in the 2015 RBC Heritage and has always played Harbour Town well. He’s a South Carolina native and has been known to hit it well on shorter courses. Expect that to continue this week.
Brian Harman ($7,200)
I like the 33-year old lefty Brian Harman to be in contention this weekend for a couple of reasons. First is the value he presents at $7,200 after finishing T-23rd last weekend, giving him six top-25 finishes on the season. Second is Harmon’s familiarity with the course. The Savannah, Georgia native has played 10 events here in his career and has finished in the top 10 twice. Harman has scored 70.2 Fantasy Points Per Tournament this season on DraftKings, which is more than some of the bigger, more expensive names like Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose and Brooks Koepka.
J.T. Poston ($7,500)
If you haven’t noticed the trend yet, I’m loading up on southerners that are used to playing in coastal conditions, and Poston fits the bill. He was steady as a rock at Colonial, finishing T-10 at 11-under par. It was only his first top-10 of the year, but he has five top-25s in his 14 events played. He’s not known for his play off the tee, but he excels around the green and is one of the best putters on Tour. $7,500 is a steal for Poston this weekend.
