Editor’s Picks

Biggest questions at PGA Championship start with Tiger, Jordan

DraftKings value picks

Some believe Kuchar is a cash play, but I think he makes for an always-sneaky GPP play — as we saw at The Open a few weeks ago where he was in 7 percent of lineups. Kuch’s consistent strong play in all tournaments, not just the weak-field ones, is why we’re looking to him in all formats week in and week out. — Taras Pitra

It has been a tremendous year for Simpson as he has shot up to No. 20 in the world (from No. 43 at the start of 2018). He won The Players and has recorded 10 top-25s. His strength is in his approach game and his putter has also been outstanding. His game should set up nicely for Bellerive and his price is appealing at $7,700. — Jeff Bergerson

Fresh off a solo second at Bridgestone, Stanley is a tee-to-green star (relative to his price). He’s slightly above average in distance off the tee, but he’s extremely accurate and will avoid landing in the junk on tee shots. He’s typically a poor putter, but Stanley will put himself into position for short putts often enough, and scores very well on par-4s. — Adam Daly

FanDuel value picks

I want to make sure that I can get at least two big names in my lineup this week and in order to do that, we are going to need to dig deep into the values to make it happen. Fortunately, with such a stacked field there are a handful of names in the lower range that stand out. Coming off of a third-place finish at Firestone last week, Olesen looks to continue his recent run of success. In his past seven starts, he’s finished in the top 12 five times, including a win. He’s made the cut in four of five starts at the PGA Championship so he’s far from a rookie and should not be too intimidated by the stage. — Zachary Turcotte

Cantlay heads into the PGA Championship fresh off of a T-6 finish at the Bridgestone. Prior to that he finished T-12 at The Open and T-15 at the Travelers. His game appears to be peaking at the right time for the 100th edition of the season’s final major. The test at Firestone Country Club last week should also be viewed as a good indicator of what to expect at Bellerive. Similar driving will be required in order to contend here, and Cantlay was one of the best off the tee at Firestone. He will likely improve on his T-33 finish in this event last year, so his $9,700 FanDuel salary is a solid value that also has the upside for finishing points. — Erik Dantoft
