The PLAYERS Championship: Tournament Pick Em'


Group A: Dechambeau / Johnson / McIlroy / Rahm / Thomas / Schauffele

Dustin Johnson has been an automatic choice in Group A almost every time he's played this season, but we're going with Rory McIlroy as he's both won here and comes into the event seemingly in better form than a recently-struggling DJ.

Group B: Cantlay / Finau / Simpson / Matsuyama / Morikawa / Scott

This is a difficult group, but the quality iron play of Collin Morikawa seems like a perfect fit for TPC Sawgrass.

Group C: Fitzpatrick / Hovland / Spieth / Fleetwood / Casey / Reed

This is a tricky group as well, but we're going to ride the resurgent Jordan Spieth here as his combination of solid iron play and short game magic ought to be a great combination at this golf course.

Group D: Homa / McNealy / Berger / Redman / Rodgers / Scheffler

This is two-horse race between Daniel Berger and our choice of Max Homa. Both have collected early wins in this season and you probably can't go wrong with either, but we think that Homa's form has been more consistent and more recent.

Group E: Hatton / Garcia / Westwood / Molinari / Poulter / Rose

Lee Westwood has had a resurgence in the post-COVID world of golf and coming off a great week at Bay Hill should be a fine fit for a plodder's golf course this week as well.

Group F: Day / Fowler / Woodland / Kuchar / Mickelson / Watson

Almost everyone in this group is currently struggling with their game, but Jason Day seems like his struggles are more body-related than they are game-related. If he's feeling well, he should be the favorite among the players in this group.

Forelinx DFS: Parlay of the Week


Leg One: Bryson Dechambeau (-105) OVER Dustin Johnson (-125)

Rare is the time that you'll bet on a minus player over Dustin Johnson, but in the wake of his win last week it's hard not to like Bryson Dechambeau as he's trending up while DJ (especially off the tee) is trending the other way.

Leg Two: Rory McIlroy (-125) OVER Jon Rahm (-105)

While Jon Rahm has played well at this golf course in the past, so too has our pick of Rory McIlroy and the latter has been knocking on the door of a win for the better part of this calendar year.

Leg Three: Justin Thomas (EVEN) OVER Xander Schauffele (-135)

While he hasn't been playing particularly well of late, Justin Thomas started to show a little bit of form at Concession and we think it won't be long before we see him back to his usual self.
