DFS Picks for the 2020 Wyndham Championship

| August 11, 2020 2:29 am PDT

If you won a bunch of money during the PGA Championship, why rest on your laurels? If you came up empty betting on the action at Harding Park, chances are you’re hungry to jump back into the ring.

Either way, you’re looking for Wyndham Championship DFS picks that make sense for GPPs.

Ask and you shall receive.

Tommy Fleetwood – $10,500

Paul Casey and Justin Rose are both cheaper, plus they both played better at the PGA. Yet I prefer to be contrarian here and go back to Tommy Fleetwood as I did last week at Harding Park.

Despite the disappointing weekend in San Francisco, Fleetwood’s game is still trending in the right direction. The Englishman has improved his finishes in each of the three weeks he’s been back out on tour and should have no problem picking apart this Donald Ross layout.

Harris English – $9,300

Riding a streak of four straight finishes of 19th or better justifies Harris English as a sensible Wyndham Championship DFS pick. In fact, Harris has recorded 11 top-20s this season – tied with Justin Thomas for the most top-20s on tour.

Here’s a guy who ranks 11th in GIR and 3rd in scrambling so it should surprise nobody that he leads the PGA Tour in bogey avoidance.

Also worth noting is there are just two pars fives on the scorecard at Sedgefield. Why is that noteworthy?

English clocks in 5th in par-3 scoring average and 7th in par-4 scoring average.

Brendon Todd – $8,900

You can read more about why I like Brendon Todd in Greensboro by checking out my Wyndham Championship prediction post. He’s my pick to win this week as he’s steadily worked his way back to returning to the peak form he displayed in November.

The 54-hole leader at both the Travelers Championship and the WGC in Memphis had stumbled in recent final rounds, but he appeared to get back on track with a 67 Sunday in San Francisco.

Maverick McNealy – $7,600

Maverick McNealy is quietly putting together a rock-solid freshman campaign on the PGA Tour. With more than $1.2 million pocketed, McNealy can swing freely this week knowing he’s virtually already locked up a spot in the first two events of the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

Two tops-10s over the last five weeks hint at the state of his game and let’s not forget about his knack for winning golf tournaments. Maverick’s 11 victories at Stanford tied a school record held by Tiger Woods and Patrick Rodgers.

Brian Harman – $7,100

Already with two former Bulldogs on the roster, let’s make it a trio of University of Georgia alum and roll with Brian Harman. Sepp Straka (also a former golfer at Georgia) will garner some attention at $7,100, but I prefer to pivot to Harman.

As I mentioned in my Wyndham Championship sleepers blog, the 33-year-old lefty placed 6th here in 2019. What I never brought up was that he shot 67 or lower in all four rounds and racked up 24 birdies during the week – the second most of anyone in the field.

Wesley Bryan – $6,600

I won’t go back to the University of Georgia well. However, I will stick in the land of former SEC standouts and target a South Carolina product who is averaging 68.7 since the restart.

Having not teed it up on the PGA Tour since the Rocket Mortgage Classic in early July should help keep his ownership down, but be aware of his last couple of starts. 24th in Cromwell and 21st in Detroit hint that the torn labrum in his left shoulder is no longer holding him back.

My 2020 Wyndham Championship DFS Lineup for GPPs

  • Tommy Fleetwood $10,500
  • Harris English $9,300
  • Brendon Todd $8,900
  • Maverick McNealy $7,600
  • Brian Harman $7,100
  • Wesley Bryan $6,600

Many like to go with a “stars and scrubs” lineup for GPPs on DraftKings. I’ve gone that route before, but the pricing this week allowed me to balance out my Wyndham Championship DFS picks.
