Top DFS Picks for the Wyndham Championship in 2021

| August 10, 2021 7:05 am PDT

We’ve reached the final regular-season event of the 2020-21 PGA Tour season. With several household names hovering on the playoff bubble (Adam Scott, Rickie Fowler, Tommy Fleetwood, Justin Rose, Matt Kuchar), expect lots of drama in Greensboro on Sunday afternoon.

One way for bettors to get in on the action is to fire a few lineups into some GPPs on DraftKings. The top-priced trio (Hideki, Louis, and Webb) will command lots of attention, while Will Zalatoris ($10,300) should receive plenty of clicks coming off a top-10 in Memphis.

Having said that, fading the top-four names and leaving money on the table gives your lineup the best chance at standing out. That’s what I’ll do here as I unveil my top Wyndham Championship DFS picks.

Brian Harman – $9,900

$9,900 might seem a tad bit pricey for Brian Harman in fantasy golf, but let the casual fans who are raising an eyebrow be the ones who steer clear. Here’s a guy who’s landed 19th or better in 9 of his last 12 starts; he’s one of the best putters on tour as well as one of the most efficient drivers (8th in total driving efficiency) in the game.

On top of his form being superb all-season long, the southpaw’s track record at this par-70 Donald Ross design is pretty darn spiffy.

Harman has fired 67 or lower in seven of his last eight rounds at Sedgefield Country Club.

Russell Henley – $9,400

Sticking with guys who balled out in Athens, one of Harman’s teammates at UGA (not the one who collapsed on the back nine in Memphis) is firmly on my radar. Top-20s in each of his last three starts stateside, Henley’s recent play at this historic layout in Greensboro has been equally as impressive as Harman’s.

69 or lower in eight straight rounds at Sedgefield CC, Russell closed with 63-65 at the 2020 edition to catapult himself into the top-10.

Henley often gets touted as one of the premium iron players on tour. Here’s the proof that confirms that notion.

Top 4 Players on the PGA Tour – SG: Approach (2020-21)
Player SG: Approach
Collin Morikawa 1.395
Paul Casey .917
Justin Thomas .902
Russell Henley .901

Matthew Wolff – $9,300

On the heels of posting his second top-20 in his last five starts, now could be the perfect time to invest stock in Matthew Wolff. The free-swinging 22-year-old is gaining traction with his driver, and his putter cooperated nicely in Memphis (15th in SG: Putting last week).

Rather than get caught up with his struggles earlier in the year, remember that talent this blatant alwaysresurfaces.

Slowly but surely building confidence back up in his game, Wolff’s propensity to go low is as genuine as anyone’s in this field.

Brandon Hagy – $7,200

The runner-up at the 2021 Honda Classic is quietly on a bit of a heater. Looking to keep his foot on the gas pedal as he storms into the postseason, Brandy Hagy is locked in as one of the best DFS picks for the Wyndham Championship.

6th in Detroit at the RMC and 18th the next week at the John Deere Classic hinted that the former standout at Cal was on the verge of breaking through. A top-5 last week at the Barracuda Championship – highlighted by a final-round 63 – is more validation that Hagy’s time is coming.

As hard as this guy pounds it off the tee (3rd in club head speed), I refuse to be late to the party.

Joel Dahmen – $7,200

Charging toward his sixth consecutive made cut, the 18-hole leader at the Barracuda Championship has picked a nice time for his golf game to be rounding into form. A winner earlier in the spring at Puntacana, Dahmen arrives in North Carolina after registering a tournament-high 25 birdies in Truckee.

Look for Joel to parlay his momentum at a golf course where he’s produced a 68.13 scoring average over his career. Sitting 76th in the FedEx Cup standings, a strong four days could be enough to solidify Dahmen’s status for the BMW Championship.

Roger Sloan – $6,700

Starting the week 131st in the points standings, Roger Sloan needs a fruitful showing to advance to next week’s playoffs. In other words, the 34-year-old Canadian just needs to do exactly what he’s been doing all summer long.

Sloan has made eight of nine cuts, including five in a row, emphasized by a solo-6th last weekend at Old Greenwood. Aiding Roger’s case as one of the best Wyndham Championship DFS picks is the fact that all facets of his game were firing last time out.

Roger Sloan – By the Numbers at the 2021 Barracuda Championship
Stat Value Rank
Driving Distance 334.9 20
Driving Accuracy 82.14% T2
Scrambling 78.95% 4
GIR 73.61% T19
Putts Per GIR 1.642 16

My 2021 Wyndham Championship DFS Lineup for GPPs

  • Brian Harman $9,900
  • Russell Henley $9,400
  • Matthew Wolff $9,300
  • Brandon Hagy $7,200
  • Joel Dahmen $7,200
  • Roger Sloan $6,700

The $8-9k range is typically my sweet spot for targeting golfers in GPPs on DraftKings. However, that’s far from the case this week, as not a single one of my favorite DFS picks for the Wyndham Championship falls in that price point.

My selections are more of the “stars and scrubs” variety, although don’t sleep on a “sleeper” getting over the hump. Remember, the two most recent winners at Sedgefield are Jim Herman and J.T. Poston.
