Fantasy Alarm is taking a different approach to help our subscribers build successful DFS lineups. I will be giving you my personal core plays for this weekend's tournament. These players listed below are my three favorite top tier, middle tier and value tier players for both DraftKings and Fanduel. They will be at the core of all my lineups for this weekend's WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational and then I'll use my playbook to fill out the remaining spots in my lineup.
First thing you have to remember when setting your lineups this weekend is that this is a no cut event. Just like we saw last weekend at the Olympics, all of your golfers will play all four days this weekend. You can take more risks with your lineups and take shots.
When you have a small field, you cannot be afraid to go off the beaten path with your selections because it’s that much more difficult to make your lineups unique. You don’t have to use the plays in my playbook, because you know a lot of people will be using the same players. If you like someone, this is the weekend to put them in a lineup, especially in the 6K range.
Once again, I preach to no zero out your lineups. Do not use all of your allotted budget because everyone and their mother will do that this weekend. Think about everyone out there trying to fit in as many of the big names as possible and using every last dollar. You need to be different and change up the strategy.
This new format of core plays I think is way more valuable to our subscribers because it lends more to teaching than just copy and pasting. A set of these players will be in each one of my lineups this weekend and then a mix of players from my playbook will fill out the rest.
If you have any more questions, you can leave them in the chat or hit me up on twitter @Drew_Phelps83. Good Luck!
