2024 Masters DraftKings Deep Sleepers

2024 Masters DraftKings Deep Sleepers

It's a tradition unlike any other....my Masters Sleeper picks! And oh yeah, the Masters at Augusta too. But I won't be fitted for a green jacket anytime soon and I am certain I am not winning the $3.24 million that the winner of the Masters will receive on Sunday. However, I will be giving it my all to pad both my bank account and yours with my 2024 Masters DraftKings Deep Sleepers.

But for starters, let's talk about a popular "sleeper" whom I like this week who you will not see below, Saheeth Theegala. It's not that I don't like Theegala and I even have a bet or two for him to win. However, DK priced him at $7700, which is above our $7500 "deep sleeper" line. So there might be some other "sleepers" I like, but if they are not under $7500 on DK, you won't find them below.

Also, I will go in descending order from highest salary to lowest salary.

With that in mind, here are a six-pack of golfers I like to help you afford those bigger studs in your lineup.

Russell Henley ($7200)

Honestly, Henley shouldn't be part of my 2024 Masters DFS Golf Deep Sleepers. He's one of the better golfers on tour (17th in the OWGR!) and calling him a sleeper is a joke. But he's priced quite attractively at $7200, so I'm including him. But the number to remember with Henley though is "4". That's because he's coming off a 4th place finish last week at the Valero, his third this season. He also finished 4th at the Masters last year.

Henley also will have the Georgia contingent behind him as a fellow Bulldog, but there are plenty of other reasons to back this 4-time winner. (there's that number four again!). He's 21st in Shots Gained Total and 29th in Shots Gained Putting, which is a pretty lethal combo at Augusta.

Henley is also +400 on DK Sportsbook to finish in the top 10. I feel like his chances of doing so are far better than 25%, making that 4x return a very attractive bet! And there's that "4" again. Bottom line, Henly is a "Fours" to be reconned with!

Si Woo Kim ($7100)

I know, I know. Banking on Si Woo can be a daunting proposition. And it's hard to feel confident about a player who is -.350 in Shots Gained Putting, ranking him 142nd on the tour. But his form recently has been far better than you might even realize. Kim has gained an average of 5.9 strokes Tee to Green over his last five tournaments, including a T-6 finish in the deep field of The Players Championship.

But he also has a better-than-you-might-expect record at the Masters as well. He has three Top-25 finishes over his last six starts, all of which he has made the cut. If he can simply match the field in his putting, Kim should easily notch another Top-25 finish and might even find himself on the first page of the leaderboard come Sunday.

Nick Taylor ($7000)

Taylor does not have the same win equity this win as some of the other names in this batch. But he did win earlier this year at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and we don't have to worry about his lack of experience as he notched a T-29 at Augusta previously. Taylor has a knack for performing in the clutch and that will serve him well at the Masters.

I don't understand how a player 24th in the OWGR who is 32nd in Total Shots Gained and 19th in Shots Gained Putting at only $7K. Maybe I'm missing something, but I will definitely have a few shares of Nick Taylor this week and I recommend you do as well.

Adrian Meronk ($6500)

Now it starts to get interesting. Meronk is a perfect 8-for-8 this season in cuts made this season, but he joined the LIV Tour in 2024, so his last five tournament finishes need to be taken with a grain of salt. However, he finished 2nd at the Hero Dubai Dessert Classic less than four months ago, finishing ahead of Cameron Young and Joaquin Niemann, who are both priced thousands more than him this week.

Meronk is 1st in stroke average on the European Tour this year, as well as 1st in Greens In Regulation. The 6'6 Polish golfer can hit the ball hard and I like him to make the cut this week. Anything after that is pure gravy, but I expect this Pierogi to be quite the filling option!

Austin Eckroat ($6300)

This will be Austin Eckroat's maiden Masters entry. I'd feel better about him if he wasn't a Masters debutante, but there is still a ton to like about this kid. He joined the tour in 2023 and already has nearly $5 million in career earnings. He won the Cognizant Classic back in March and has the chops to hold his own in this deeper field. He's 10th in Shots Gained Approaching The Green and 26th in Shots Gained Total.

He's more of a high-leverage pick as I expect his ownership to be pretty low, given he's between Taylor Moore who is coming off a second-place finish in his last tournament, and Masters winner Charl Schwartzel, who is a perfect 7-for-7 in cuts made this year.

Denny McCarthy ($6200)

And we finish with Denny McCarthy, who is coming off a playoff loss last week at the Valero Open. McCarthy could crash the top 20 this week or not even make the Masters cut. I don't know. But what I do know however is that $6200 is way too low for a player who is consistently one of the better putters on tour.  Currently 9th in Shots Gained Putting, McCarthy is also 30th in the OWGR, making this $6200 price tag downright laughable.

If nothing else, McCarthy won't kill you and he'll give you the flexibility to fit some big studs in your lineup this week. He's the perfect golfer to mix into your MMEs this week!
