WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational DFS Picks for 2020
Memphis is generally associated with BBQ and Blues, and of course, a bit of Elvis, but golf is what takes center stage this week. Those planning on firing a lineup or two into some GPPs on DraftKings can use this page as a foundation.
I’ve scoped the odds, studied the sleepers, and examined the venue from multiple angles. It all adds up to my top WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational DFS picks.
Patrick Cantlay – $10,100
My WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational pick to win might not draw as much attention as usual coming off shooting 79 Sunday at the Memorial, but one poor round in brutal conditions isn’t enough for me to stray. Cantlay arrives in Memphis well rested and ready to pounce, plus he’s $1,100 cheaper than Rory and $1,300 cheaper than Rahm.
Heading your lineup with the 28-year-old silent assassin they call Patrick opens lots of doors for the rest of your squad.
Tommy Fleetwood – $8,700
Tommy missed the cut last week in Minnesota, and there’s a ton of other intriguing options at a similar price point. However, keep in mind that the 3M Open was Fleetwood’s first competition since March, and I think we can cut the guy a break.
After all, he had been busy quarantining in the Hamptons, parading around the elite of the elite.
Now that he’s knocked some rust off and gotten a couple of horrendous putting rounds out of the way, the Englishman is a good bet to get rolling at TPC Southwind — a place where he finished 4th in 2019.
Rickie Fowler – $8,300
Rickie is far from a sure thing after displaying some sketchy play over the last six weeks, and nothing about past results at this golf course lends any sort of comfort. On the flip side, zigging when everyone else is zagging in golf GPPs is never a bad thing.
Fowler quietly pieced together a four-under-par round Friday at the Memorial and should be eager to throw his hat in the ring. Plus, it never hurts to roster one of the top-tier putters who typically makes a ton of birdies.
Jason Day – $8,200
With a history of withdrawals on his resume combined with exhibiting obvious discomfort last time out, Jason Day isn’t going to be touched by a handful of people making WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational DFS picks.
At the same time, $8,200 seems rather cheap for a 12x PGA Tour winner who finished 7th and 4th in his last two starts, no?
It was only a matter of time until the Aussie regained his form, hinting that more positive strides are to be expected.
Matthew Wolff – $7,900
What a shocker — I picked Matthew Wolff as a WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational sleeper and am endorsing him as a DFS pick. Here’s the thing, though.
The dude was $9,700 last week and finished 12th, yet DK decided to slash his price by nearly two thousand bucks. I know the field is stacked, but that seems a bit harsh.
Wolff’s putting is starting to catch up to his pristine ball striking, and you want me to bail now? Not a chance.
Chez Reavie – $6,700
Watch out for Chez Reavie’s popularity getting out of hand this week, and if you are going to pivot, I like Matt Wallace ($6,700) and Brendon Todd ($6,600). The problem is it’s hard to come off Reavie after looking over what he has accomplished at TPC Southwind since 2015.
|2016||Did Not Play|
Chez is one of those guys I steer clear of when he’s not playing well and love to target when he’s showing form. 17th at the Workday Charity Open and 22nd and the Memorial in his last two starts tells you all you need to know.
My 2020 St. Jude Invitational DFS Lineup for GPPs
- Patrick Cantlay – $10,100
- Tommy Fleetwood – $8,700
- Rickie Fowler – $8,300
- Jason Day – $8,200
- Matthew Wolff – $7,900
- Chez Reavie – $6,700
There are no guarantees, but there are strategies you can employ so that you can distinguish your lineup from thousands and thousands of others. Leaving some money on the table is one way, while not rostering anyone from $8,800 through $9,900 is another.
