PGA DFS: Yahoo Cup Picks for the ZOZO Championship

·3 min read

Looking for a way to learn PGA DFS without jumping in with both feet? We have a perfect solution for you. This year Yahoo and Yahoo Fantasy are offering a $15,000 freeroll called the PGA “Yahoo Cup.” This contest awards a winner for weekly events and one winner at the end of the season who has the most cumulative points. It will go for 39 weeks, with the lowest nine weeks of scoring being dropped from your total score. Each week also features a $150-to-first contest, making each week matter just as much as the last. Let’s dig into this week’s top value plays for the ZOZO Championship.

Top Three PGA DFS Value Picks for the ZOZO Championship

Rickie Fowler ($24)

Fowler’s return to form will come with a lot of interest and positivity. This week’s event is another no-cut, so gamers do not have to worry about Fowler losing focus for hole or two and missing the cut. Along with his low salary compared to others in his salary area, that makes him a great roster this week and should allow for all types of lineup building.

C.T. Pan ($22)

Since winning the RBC Heritage a few years ago, Pan has not played all that well. But he has had a good stretch of golf over the last few months, including a bronze medal in Tokyo at the Olympics. His game is to hit more fairway than everybody else and get hot with the iron and putter. That is what he has been doing in this stretch, which has included two other top-11s in his last four starts. Add that up with his low salary this week, and Pan makes for one of the best values on the board.

Chesson Hadley ($20)

Hadley is one of 20 PGA Tour golfers at the minimum salary this week and could get lost in the shuffle among some more popular names. Luke List and Doug Ghim should garner most of the attention, leaving Hadley a bit under-rostered. His form is trending, and he is one of the best putters in the field, which is always dangerous in a no-cut event.

PGA DFS Yahoo Cup Lineup Builds

Aggressive Lineup Build

Adding either Ghim or List with Pan and Hadley will allow for rostering any other three golfers in the entire field. Buying into the top end of the field with Morikawa, Schauffele and Hideki Matsuyama should provide a unique setup with a lot of top-10 upside.

Conservative Lineup Build

Another way to diversify is to not roster anyone at the minimum salary this week, and substituting Fowler and van Rooyen for them still provides plenty of salary per player to build a solid lineup. While one cannot get any three in the field, the possibilities are vast when stacking these three and should provide plenty of stability this week.
