Editor’s Note: We may not write up every player we consider to be a top play. Be sure to consult the chart at the bottom of the page. This article will update to reflect any injury or weather news.

DFS OPTIMIZER: If you are looking for a DFS optimizer, we have two options for ETR subscribers. Both of these products will sync automatically with ETR content (projections, ownership, etc.) if you already have an ETR golf subscription. Use the following links for full details about each product: THESOLVER (Optimizer + Bankroll Tracker) & Fantasy Labs (Optimizer).


Below you will find the players we consider the best for the slate. These do NOT account for ownership, but they do account for salary. In other words, Jon Rahm could be our No. 1 play in the high range… but he could also be a bad tournament play because he projects for 60% ownership in an extreme example.

This article is for cash games (contests in which roughly 50% of the field gets paid out, such as a head-to-head or double-up). For tournaments, our focus should be more on the projected ownership and projected ceiling columns in our projections table.

With that said, these are our Top Plays considering the following factors: median projection, lower volatility, upside, and value. They are listed in price descending order. At the bottom, you’ll find suggested rankings by site once salary is accounted for.



Tony Finau ($12,000 DK, $12,300 FD) – DraftKings stretched out the pricing spectrum, in both directions, crowning Finau with the rare $12K tag while the bargain bin now dips into the $5K range. But it wasn’t enough to consider a fade in cash-game contests, as he still checks in as our top overall value with an 89.9% chance to make the cut and the slate’s lowest volatility score. Finau ranks first in this field over the last 12 months in Data Golf’s True Strokes Gained: Total and has played Vidanta Vallarta twice, posting finishes of T2 and first.
