2020 Wyndham Championship DFS Golf Deep Sleepers

on

Can we bask a little bit in the glory that was the PGA Championship before getting into the 2020 Wyndham Championship DFS Golf Deep Sleepers?

That might go down as one of my favorite PGA Championships of all time and maybe even one of the top five tournaments of all time! Having a six-way tie for first that late on a Sunday afternoon? Awesome. Morikawa winning it the way he did (as opposed to others blowing it as sometimes happens in majors)? Amazing. It is the only major of the year but giving us everything we need from a major? All right, all right, all right.

Now that I’m done limiting my vocabulary to my teenage years, let’s get to this week’s tournament, the Wyndham Championship. This will be the last tournament of the year before the FedEx Cup Playoffs start. Expect to hear an onslaught of commentary about who is on the bubble and who’s not.

I am not looking forward to that, but I am looking forward to the battles to make it to next week.  I will also be rooting for my sleeper picks, who we will set at anyone under $8,000 on DraftKings and $8,500 or lower on FanDuel.

Mark Hubbard (DK $6,700, FD $7,900)

We’ll start with one of my sleepers from last week who (cough cough) did make the cut and I expect to do so again as one of my 2020 Wyndham Championship DFS Golf Deep Sleepers for this week.

We can’t get Hubbard at $6,200 like we did last week. Yet he’s still cheap enough for us to get some value. Not counting his WD from the Workday, he has yet to miss a cut since the restart including last week’s loaded field. Other than putting, there is nothing that Hubbard does particularly well. But he does enough across the board that I think he keeps the streak of made cuts going this week.

Brice Garnett (DK $6,700, FD $8,500)

Garnett seems to love this tournament and has finished in the top 20 here three times in a row, including last year’s T6. Coming into the tournament this year, Garnett brings an even stronger 15th Greens In Regulation and 47th in Driving Accuracy Percentage, which both will play very well here at Sedgefield Country Club, the host of this week’s Wyndham Championship.

Garnett is priced about the same on both sites. However, I wanted to mention one player whom I was surprised to see such a huge discrepancy between the two sites. Scott Stallings is only $7,100 on DK, but a whopping $8,900 on FD. Love me some Stallings on DK but I’m pulling the brake on him in FanDuel. After Garnett, we go to someone else not too far from our FD threshold, Danny Lee.

Danny Lee (DK $6,800, FD $8,300)

Lee very quietly made the cut last week (which helped my DK Showndown team!) and even I was surprised to see that he currently sits a comfortable 51st in the FedEx Standings. DLee is one of the known pranksters on tour, for those who know him, which most of the public does not. He will often be a non-factor for weeks in a row and then suddenly be found in the mix late on Sunday, like when he won the Greenbrier Classic a few years ago.

Heads-up, Lee is 28th in birdie average. Don’t let Lee take you by surprise this week.

Nate Lashley (DK $6,500, FD $8,000)

Lee’s check-garnering last week didn’t surprise me. Yet one of the quieter but biggest surprises had to be Lashley finishing 37th last week. Welcome back to the land of the living, Nate! Lashley had a strong 2019 (and was one of my frequent picks). 2020 looked like it might be another good year for him when he finished T-3 at the Waste Management Open the first week of February. Unfortunately, he’s done next to nothing since then, having missed the cut or withdrawn in eight straight tournaments leading up to the PGA Championship last week.

Another missed cut and Lashley could tumble out of the playoffs from his current perch at 85th in the FedEx Standings. But he’s coming in hot obviously and another top 40 finish will punch his ticket into the playoffs. For those wanting a low-owned aggressive play, Lashley is your man.

Wesley Bryan (DK $6,600, FD $7,900)

Bryan comes in as less of a recommendation and more of someone to root for this week. He saw his 2018 season come crashing down here at the Wyndham when a missed cut knocked him out of the playoffs. Bryan is currently on a medical exemption and finds himself in a similar situation sitting at 199th in FedEx Standings. But in his lone three starts this summer he finished T68-T24-T21. He needs to make the most of his limited starts and I suspect he just might.

Matthew NeSmith (DK $6,400, FD $7,800)

Let’s dip down a little bit, shall we? NeSmith might seem like a very aggressive play, but is he? NeSmith lives and was both born and schooled in the ‘Linas, so this course should feel quite comfortable. Okay, so maybe he missed the cut the one time he played this tourney back in 2012. But his game has definitely improved in eight years, including four top-20 finishes earlier this year.



He’s an impressive 17th in Greens In Regulation. The weakest part of his game might be his scrambling, which you can often get away with at Sedgefield.

Good luck at the 2020 Wyndham Championship with these Deep Sleepers plus your DFS Golf picks!
