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 NORTHERN TRUST and then I'll use my playbook to fill out the remaining spots in my lineup.
As I mentioned in my playbook, this is the last cut event of the PGA Tour season, so you need to be a little risk averse when making those lineups. I do not recommend a full star and scrubs approach with this field. Yea, you may want to fit both Rahm and Rory in that lineup but you will have to dig into that 6K range to do it and I'm not down for that.
If I chose to start my lineups with Rahm, I'll drop down to Berger to pair with him but if I start with Spieth, I'll likely pair him with DeChambeau. Those are the combos I'll be starting most of my lineups with this weekend. In the mid tier, I'll have different mixes of English, Conners, Hatton, and Lowry. I really like Vegas and Sloan in the value tier and they'll likely round out most of my lineups.
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!
