We are just two weeks away from The Players Championship, which also brings the biggest prize in all of DFS, let alone PGA DFS. But before we get there, we have two weeks of great golf in front of us, starting this week in Bradenton, Fla. at WGC Workday at The Concession. With only 72 golfers in the field, one would think that there are a couple of high-ownership bubbles, but if you like entirely spread-out ownership, this is your week to fire up DraftKings and FanDuel and get your fantasy golf picks in.

WGC Workday Fantasy Golf Picks
PGA DFS Picks: $9,000+
- 15 Golfers
- Total ownership of around 215%
As you can see, no golfers right now have projections over 20%, usually an indication that DraftKings has done an incredible job of pricing the tournament fairly. With that in mind, though, 15 of 72 golfers are priced at above $9,000, which seems like a high proportion, again showing the strength of the pricing. Dustin Johnson has proven himself to be the most reliable golfer, and as such, he’ll be the closest to 20% owned this week.
Webb Simpson leads the next batch of golfers that have ownership projections between 17 20% this week, including Tony Finau, Patrick Cantlay, Tyrell Hatton and Bryson DeChambeau. It seems people would rather focus on DeChambeau’s 2015 win here than his recent form.
There are also quite a few that will be owned between 14 and 17%. Rory McIlroy and Patrick Reed are the first two names that show up here, as nobody seems to want to pay top dollar for Xander Schauffele right now. He’s projecting around 10%.
Collin Morikawa is the only name with a projection of less than 10% this week.

If I was excited about a lower-owned Morikawa last week, I have to like it this week too, right? He has performed well on Jack Nicklaus courses before, and in connection with that, he also performs well at events sponsored by Workday. Morikawa led the field in strokes gained on approach last week, which is a very good sign for where his game is. I’ll back him again.

PGA DFS Picks: Nos. 12-33 Priced Golfers ($7,500-$8,900)
- 16 Golfers
- Total ownership 160 %
From the ashes comes Justin Rose, who has gone from the No. 1 golfer in the world just two years ago to the now No. 35 golfer in the world. That is a Jordan Spieth-like trajectory no one wants to be on. Rose has struggled with all parts of his game, even firing his long-time coach Sean Foley. But after a missed cut at The RSM Classic, he has made three straight cuts on the European Tour to start the season, including a runner-up finish in his last start. That is moving ownership quite a bit here this week, as he’s one of the few golfers that could end up being owned over 20% — not by me, of course.
Also pushing that level is Harris English, whose price is now incredibly favorable at $7,500, and instead of one of the top-10-priced guys, he’s in the value section with similar ownership.
Others in this price range that should be owned between 10 and 15% include:
- Scottie Scheffler
- Adam Scott
- Joaquin Niemann
- Will Zalatoris
- Louis Oosthuizen
- Jason Day

That still leaves a handful of golfers that will be under 10% owned this week. Tommy Fleetwood has yet to play his best golf this year, and the same goes for Matthew Wolff. However, with both coming in close to 5% owned, it will be hard for me not to click the names quite a bit.
PGA DFS Picks: The Rest ($7,400 and Below)
- 82+ golfers
- Total ownership 210 %
Getting to this week’s event was a lot less stressful for Abraham Ancer than it was last week — he didn’t even know if he’d make his tee time. The same can be said for Sergio Garcia, but Ancer is priced $900 cheaper. That has gamers ready to jump right back into Ancer at these levels. This is the cheapest price he’s been in some time.
Jason Kokrak is also priced down quite considerably. In fact, he’s about $1,000 less than he was last week, in a relatively similar field. He’ll be owned around 15% as well. On the same wavelength as the previous two golfers mentioned, Billy Horschel (a Florida Gator) is also the cheapest price he’s been all year, and the ownership will follow.
They will not be the only chalkier golfers in this range this week. Some others include:
- Ryan Palmer
- Shane Lowry
- Kevin Kisner
- Mackenzie Hughes
With around 40 names that I haven’t mentioned from this price range, there should be plenty of opportunities to go against the grain and find some lower-owned golfers. A few I like this week are:
- Cameron Champ
- Sebastian Munoz
- Erik van Rooyen
- Lucas Herbert
- Rasmus Hojgaard
- David Lipsky
- Lanto Griffin
