We head to Ohio for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, an event that’s one of the last warmups for the upcoming PGA Championship. Let’s put together this weeks fantasy lineup. Of course, for DraftKings, we have six sections and a $50,000 to spend.

Francesco Molinari, $9,400 - Francesco Molinari is rather cheap for a guy who has finished runner-up or won each of his last three events. Molinari has also topped 100 fantasy points in all three of those trips. There’s no reason not to put Molinari in your fantasy lineup, especially with this price.
Paul Casey, $8,600 - Paul Casey is playing some of his most consistent golf with top-10 finishes in three of his last four events, and he’s finished in the top-20 in each of his last three appearances at this event. Casey has 78.5 or more fantasy points in four of his last six tries.
Zach Johnson, $8,100 - Zach Johnson has topped 70 fantasy points in four of his last five events and has finished inside the top-20 in each of his last four events. Johnson was runner-up here last year and has top-10 finishes in three of his last five appearances.
Charley Hoffman, $7,500 - Charley Hoffman has 84 or more fantasy points in three of his last four events and has missed just two cuts since the RBC Heritage. Hoffman also finished third at this event last year. Hard to turn down the consistency with Hoffman at this price.
Tony Finau, $8,000 - Tony Finau doesn’t have any course history, but you’re talking about a guy who never misses the cut and has topped 70 fantasy points in nine of his last 10 events. There’s guys who are drastically more expensive and won’t give you that production. Finau seems like a must play as long as he’s in this price range.
Hideki Matsuyama, $8,400 - Hideki Matsuyama has missed the cut his last two events and has given us 50 or less points in five of his last seven events. However, Matsuyama is the defending champion on this course and has a couple of top-25 finishes a few years back. If there’s one course that Matsuyama can use to get back on track, it’s probably this one.
