A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier: Thursday, July 5, 2018 at 1:00 pm (The Greenbrier) See the Latest Odds
TV: GOLF, CBS
We could have done better last week after producing just 374.50 fantasy points, but at least all of our guys made the cut, which is a drastic improvement with how things played out last week. It’s about time we put together a more consistent lineup that gets us back in the money. This week, we’re putting together a lineup for A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. Of course, for DraftKings, we have six sections and a $50,000 to spend.

Jimmy Walker, $9,100 - Jimmy Walker has earned 79 or more fantasy points in four of his last six events and finished 18th at this event last year while producing top five finishes in 2010, 2011 and 2013. Walker is a solid play at this price considering he’s one of the favorites to win this tournament.
Aaron Wise, $7,900 - Aaron Wise has missed the cut in each of his last three events, but he hasn’t played since the US Open, so maybe some time off will get him back on track. Let’s not forget that Wise won the AT&T Byron Nelson and finished runner-up at the Wells Fargo Championship, combining for 240.5 fantasy points during that stretch. Wise is an intriguing value play at this price.
Brian Gay, $8,100 - Brian Gay has been a diamond in the ruff fantasy wise, as he’s somebody you can get fairly cheap, and he’s topped 70 fantasy points in four of his last five events. At the Quicken Loans National, Gay produced 87.5 points by producing a top-10 finish and hitting 20 birdies. Might as well ride the hot hand here for an average price.
Patrick Rodgers, $7,800 - Patrick Rodgers is a golfer who had trouble making the cut for a long stretch, but he’s playing his most consistent golf at the moment, which includes a top-10 finish at the Memorial and a near top-25 finish at the Travelers Championship. Rodgers has earned 66.5 or more fantasy points in four of his last six events, which is decent given the price range. I’ll take a shot with him given his current form.
Kevin Chappell, $7,700 - Kevin Chappell is yet another golfer who has had trouble making the cut recently, which explains this cheap price. However, it wasn’t long ago when you couldn’t keep Chappell out of the top-25 and he was constantly producing 70-plus fantasy points. In a wide open field, this is a course Chappell could have success and turn things around. Another risky play that could pay off and be the difference for your team.
Charles Howell, $9,300 - Few golfers have been as consistent the last couple of months as Charles Howell, and he’s topped 70 fantasy points in four of his last six events. Howell doesn’t have a breakthrough performance in West Virginia, but he’s one of the more experienced players at this course, which should count for something. Howell is probably the safest play out of this whole team.
