There are some courses that just look like a perfect fit for a player and TPC Southwind lines up so well with everything that Will Zalatoris does great. When I add in the price here it makes it easy for me to dial up Willy Z as a core play even with a recent breakup with his caddie.
It’s extremely hard to ignore the discount we’re getting on Sam Burns in the DFS world. In the three playoff events last year, Burns finished no worse than T21. There hasn’t been a point this season in which he fell out of the FedEx Cup Standing’s top-10, and enters this week ranked third. These next two weeks will be crucial for Burns, as he’ll want to start as high as possible at East Lake.
Those at the top of the FedEx Cup standings will almost undoubtedly qualify for all three events. They may get jumped by a couple of players who finish high on the leaderboard in the first two events, but it’s unlikely they fall out of the top 30. Therefore, it’s prudent that we target players at the top of the standings in the first two rounds of the draft.
