We make our way to Florida yet again for the Players Championship, and it’s time to put together a DraftKings lineup that has a chance to cashout. With a salary of $50,000 and six slots to fill, here goes.

Francesco Molinari, $8,100 - Francesco Molinari has produced top-10 finishes in his last three appearances at the Players Championship, which includes a sixth place finish last year. Molinari also enters this tournament in great form and has earned no less than 66 fantasy points in each of the last five weeks. Solid rather cheap play for the week.
Matt Kuchar, $7,800 - Matt Kuchar won the Players Championship back in 2012 and finished third back in 2016. Kuchar has also been in the thick of things more times than not, and he’s topped 70 fantasy points in two of the last three weeks. It’s actually quite amazing you can get this guy this cheap.
Kim Si-woo, $7,200 - Kim Si-woo is the defending champ at the Players Championship and finished in the top-25 in his only other appearance here. Kim has been a disappointment fantasy wise, but he did give us 105.5 points at the RBC Heritage. If you’re looking for a difference maker many aren’t paying attention to, last years winner could separate you from the rest of your competition.
Paul Casey, $8,900 - Paul Casey has finished in the top-25 each of the last three years he’s made the cut at the Players Championship. Casey is also coming off a top-five finish last week at the Wells Fargo Championship, an event that racked up 85.5 fantasy points. Casey is a safe pick given his form and history here, and fits nicely within our budget.
Dustin Johnson, $10,300 - Dustin Johnson is consistently putting together top-20 finishes and it feels like he’s on the verge of having that true breakthrough moment. It might as well happen on the big stage. Johnson has a up and down history at the Players Championship, but he has improved his finish each of the last three years, which includes a 12th place finish last year. I’ll eat the expensive price to add a heavy hitter to help balance out some of my sleepers.
Louis Oosthuizen, $7,700 - Louis Oosthuizen has had a few hiccups where he hasn’t made the cut, including last week at the Wells Fargo. The good news is that Oosthuizen has finished no worse than 16th in each of his last four events where he’s made the cut. Oosthuizen had one of his better performances at the Masters where he racked up 75.5 fantasy points. Hopefully he shows up again in a big event.
