Draftkings Lineup: RBC Canadian Open
Top player to avoid
Dustin Johnson: $11,700 DJ is the world's number one golfer and has been amazing on tour this year. That said, I absolutely refuse to pay $11,700 for a single player. This severely reduces your cap and you won't be able to invest in some good players that have a great chance to win. I love DJ, and hope he makes the cut this week, but there's no chance in hell I am putting him in my lineup this week after his Open performance.
Guy Who will blow your cap but is worth it
Tommy Fleetwood: $10,500 MY BOY!!!! Tommy has been on an absolute tear this year: 21/23 on cuts, 9 Top 10s, and some great play in the major tournaments. He hasn't missed a cut on the PGA tour since the Wells Fargo in May, and I believe that this is a tournament where he can thrive. Let's hope that Tommy can continue his red-hot streak and have another good tournament at Glen Abbey!
Great value picks
Jhonattan Vegas: $7,500 Now I know that Vegas is coming off of the craziest week of his life, but this is an absolute JOKE. The 2-time RBC Canadian Open champion is GROSSLY undervalued this week. The guy has literally won the past 2 tournaments played at Glen Abbey, and he is set at $7,500?!?! This is an absolute steal this week, and if you want to win some money, I implore you to take Jhonattan Vegas and put him in your lineup. Harold Varner III: $7,100 Varner is a guy that I love to put in my lineups when he is on the cheaper side, and it is no different in this tournament. Varner was able to pick up his 2nd top-10 finish in a row at the John Deere, finishing in 6th place. The week before, he finished T5 at the Greenbriar. Yes, he is the definition of an up-and-down player, but he has 3 top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour and I think he can do it again this week.
I have to put MY BOY Tommy Fleetwood in this week, as he continues to be hot. I have last year's first and second place finishers in here as well in Vegas and Charley Hoffman, and hopefully they can repeat their form. Adam Hadwin has been the best Canadian on tour this year, and you have to pick at least one guy from North of the Border for this tournament (SORREY!). Kirk and Varner are guys on the cheap that have played very well this year, and hopefully they continue to do that!
