We’re due for a breakout fantasy week after a few bombs, and there’s no better time to get back on track with the British Open. There’s some cheap prices on some quality players in this loaded field, so there’s no reason not to put together a decent lineup. Of course, for DraftKings, we have six sections and a $50,000 to spend.

Paul Casey, $8,700 - Paul Casey is coming off a runner-up finish in the Travelers Championship in which he produced 110 fantasy points. Casey has now produced 78 or more points in six of his last eight events. Casey also finished 11th in last years British Open.
Francesco Molinari, $8,600 - Few golfers are in better form than Francesco Molinari, as he finished runner-up at the John Deere Classic, won at Quicken Loans and had a top-25 showing at the US Open. Molinari has little success in majors, but you’re talking about a guy who has topped 100 points in three of his last four events.
Zach Johnson, $7,200 - Zach Johnson has finished 14th or better in five of his last six British Open appearances, which includes the win back in 2015. Johnson has also earned 73 or more points in three of his last four events.
Tony Finau, $7,200 - Tony Finau has an averaged finish of 22.5 in two appearances at the British Open. Finau has also topped 70 points in eight of his last nine events, making him one of the better value plays the last few months given his consistency and constant cheap price.
Bubba Watson, $7,800 - Bubba Watson has gotten back on track with his performances at the Travelers Championship and Greenbrier, producing a combined 205.5 points in those two events. Watson has had hit or miss success at the British Open, but he finished 27th last year and enters this time around in much better form.
Justin Rose, $10,200 - Justin Rose is one of the favorites to win this tournament and has produced 86 or more fantasy points in four of his last five events. With top-10 finishes in the US Open and Scottish Open, Rose seems ready to make a run for his first major title since the 2013 US Open.
