Who are you targeting this week for your RSM Classic DFS picks?
Are you leaning toward the shorter hitters who have a knack for being extremely accurate? Perhaps you’re looking at recent form and course history while trying to account for the expected conditions (rain, moderate wind).
Taking everything pertinent into account, here are my best DFS picks for the RSM Classic.
Webb Simpson – $11,200
There’s enough value lurking this week to spend up for Webb Simpson. A “horse for a course” is one thing – Webby at Sea Island Resort is another.
2nd and 3rd in the last two RSM Classics, Simpson has recorded 10 consecutive rounds of 68 or better at this event.
His popularity will be through the roof – not exactly ideal in GPPs on DraftKings – but his dependability at this venue is hard to ignore. T10 last week at the Masters.
Corey Conners – $8,900
Like Simpson, Corey Conners logged a T10 at Augusta. And like Webb, Corey hit 84% of his fairways at the Masters (3rd most in the field) and will saunter into Sea Island oozing with momentum.
Nabbing Conners in the top-20 market is one of my best bets for the RSM Classic, but don’t stop there. Plug this 28-year-old Canadian is as one of your daily fantasy picks and know you’re rostering one of the best ball-strikers in the field.
Doc Redman – $8,000
As referenced in the link above, I’m picking Doc Redman to win the golf tournament this week. on that note, I sure as heck am going to include him as one of my top DFS picks for the RSM Classic.
Doc’s accuracy off the tee and precision with his irons make him a strong play as the Seaside Course. The positive vibes garnered from his string of solid finishes (three top-4s since August) make him a legitimate candidate to hoist the hardware.
Joel Dahmen – $7,400
Since missing the cut at the US Open, Joel Dahmen is quietly getting golf game is getting back on track. 58th-38th-8th over his last three starts confirm that theory, as does that fact that he’s 22-under-par during his last five rounds.
Known for his prowess as an elite ball-striker, Dahmen led the field in SG: Around-the-Green last time out at the ZoZo Championship.
And no, I’m not concerned that he lost a bet to Brian Urlacher playing putt-putt on a backyard oasis in Scottsdale inspired by Augusta National.
One of my sleeper picks for the RSM Classic is also a fine play in all formats of fantasy golf. I’m not looking at bombers this week, but rather, who are the guys most efficient off the tee?
Cue in HVII – currently ranked 3rd in total driving efficiency.

Shriners Hospitals for Children Open
James Hahn – $6,900
T50 in his last outing (Houston Open) may steer some away from touting James Hahn as one of their RSM Classic DFS picks. Not me.
I’m willing to excuse the pedestrian-like finish and simply chalk it up as one bad week. Remember- James was coming off three straight top-10s.
The bottom line is Hahn is doing too many things well right now to disregard at $6,900.
8th in driving accuracy and 8th in GIR hint at the current rhythm in his swing. The fact that he has holed 52.94% of his putts between 10-15’ (5th on the PGA Tour) tells me he’s fully committed to the claw stroke.
My 2020 RSM Classic DFS Lineup for GPPs
Webb Simpson $11,200
Corey Conners $8,900
Doc Redman $8,000
Joel Dahmen $7,400
Harold Varner III $7,400
James Hahn $6,900
I’m typically not a fan of paying top-dollar for the most expensive option on DK, but this is a unique opportunity. When Webb Simpson steps onto the first tee at Sea Island Resort, it turns into shooting fish in a barrel.
Staying on task, all of my other DFS picks for the RSM classic fit the profile of accurate and precise golfers. After all, that’s the type of game it takes to prosper at this particular layout.
