2020 Sanderson Farms Championship: DraftKings PGA DFS Daily Cheat Sheet

DraftKings PGA DFS GPP Cheat Sheet for the 2020 Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship.  Featuring top plays, high ceiling candidates, contrarian, and value picks to target for this week’s DraftKings and FanDuel PGA DFS main slate.

We have grouped players into 3 key tiers based on price point.

You can also access a player’s “FC Player Card” by clicking their name or salary. This will bring up key news, stats and match-up data to help guide you along the way for their game that day. 

Our cheat sheets highlight the core plays (including some contrarian candidates) that we like the most on the slate and, as a result, would recommend a higher level of exposure to on the whole. It is not an exhaustive list, and if you are a multi-entry GPP player, you may decide to ultimately have a larger player pool to work from. Our hope is that this gives you a tight group of players to heavy-up your exposure to.

This week sees the players tee it up at the Sanderson Farms Championship, taking place at the Country Club of Jackson.  It checks in at just over 7400 yards and a Par 72, and generally is one of the easier courses on tour where players are likely to go low this week.  In terms of stats to follow for this one, SG: Approach and SG: Putting are two of the main ones here to evaluate as well as Scoring: Birdie or Better as you’ll want to roster players that can rack up birdies in bulk this week, chipping in with the odd eagle.  As is always the case, I factor in a fair bit of recent form into my choices as well.  I’ve included write-ups on a few of the best of the best for this week’s event, along with the cheat sheet below for a consolidated list of my favourite choices for this weekend’s tournament!

Sam Burns, $9,800 – Burns is an elite player off of the tee, and while he can struggle on some tighter tracks – that isn’t a big worry at this event as the landing zones are pretty forgiving.  Since the return from the break during the pandemic, Burns has racked up seven top 30 finishes – many of which were in events with stronger fields than what we see this week.  He has the ability to go low, and I like his chances of racking up plenty of birdies as well as being in the thick of things as we roll into the weekend.  He ranks 46th on tour in Birdie or better %, which is one of the better numbers for the field this week.

Cameron Davis, $8,100 – He should probably be $1k-$1.5k more expensive than he is with this field.  He comes into this one with four strong showings in a row and his game fits this course well with his great ball striking ability, which is among the strongest in the field.  He ranked 14th on tour a year ago in Birdie or better % (24.04%) and 11th on tour in Eagles.  I think he’ll be a popular option this week, but I think you could even go as far as hitting the lock button on him, I think he’s going to have an excellent showing this week in Mississippi.

Denny McCarthy, $7,900 – Most of his game (if not all of it) is a function of his elite putting.  McCarthy was the best putter on tour last year, and this week with the big greens at the Country Club of Jackson, I like his chances of putting together four strong rounds and being in the thick of things as we head into the weekend.  He’s a great option to contend in weak field events due to his elite play on the green, and that is certainly the case for the field this weekend.  He’s a great sub $8k option this week.
