Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka have been popular PGA DFS picks for years, but daily Fantasy golf players will have to decide if they can be trusted when they set their PGA DFS strategy for the 2022 Farmers Insurance Open, which tees off on Wednesday, Jan. 26. Johnson, who's among the highest priced players on both DraftKings and FanDuel, has won 24 PGA Tour events in his career. However, Johnson hasn't played in a PGA Tour event since the CJ Cup in October, so rust could certainly be a factor this week at Torrey Pines Golf Course.
Koepka, whose PGA DFS price is $9,600 on DraftKings and $10,800 on FanDuel, has missed the cut in two of his last three starts. Can those household names be relied on as PGA DFS picks this week? Or is it time to fade them in favor of players with a significantly lower price tag? Before you enter your PGA DFS lineups for the 2022 Farmers Insurance Open, you'll want to see the latest daily Fantasy golf picks, advice and player pool from SportsLine's Mike McClure.
McClure is a DFS pro with nearly $2 million in career winnings, and he's been red-hot on his PGA Tour picks this season. McClure is also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every tournament 10,000 times, taking factors like statistical trends, past results and current form into account. This allows him to find the best PGA DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They're a must-see for any PGA DFS player.
Last week at The American Express, McClure included Jon Rahm among his top PGA DFS picks. The result: Rahm secured a top-15 finish with a score of 14-under par, helping him return 102.3 points on FanDuel and 81.5 points on DraftKings. Anybody that included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable weekend.
In addition, McClure's model is up almost $10,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament. This same model has also nailed a whopping seven majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.
Now, McClure has set his sights on the 2022 Farmers Insurance Open and revealed his optimal PGA DFS advice, strategy and player pool. Head to SportsLine now to see his top daily Fantasy golf picks for the Farmers Insurance Open 2022.
Top 2022 Farmers Insurance Open PGA DFS picks
One of McClure's top PGA DFS picks for the 2022 Farmers Insurance Open is Joseph Bramlett at $6,700 on DraftKings and $7,900 on FanDuel. Bramlett is a long ball hitter who is averaging 318.3 yards per drive this season, which ranks third on the PGA Tour.
Bramlett's ability to drive the ball deep into the fairway will allow him to use his short irons to approach the green. That lethal combination has helped the 33-year-old hit over 72 percent of greens in regulation this season, which will come in handy this week at Torrey Pines. Plus, Bramlett secured a top-20 finish at this event in 2021. He's a complete steal at this price point, so confidently lock him in your PGA DFS lineups and look for a big return at the Farmers Insurance Open.
McClure's optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Daniel Berger at 10,000 on DraftKings and $11,300 on FanDuel. Berger enters this week's event full of confidence after securing a top-five finish at the Sentry Tournament of Champions earlier this month. He's now finished T-11 or better in three of his last five starts on the PGA Tour.
Berger has been able to secure those positive results thanks in large part to his impeccable iron play. In fact, the 28-year-old is hitting over 86 percent of greens in regulation this season. Berger has also made the cut in each of his last 12 starts, making him a solid building block for your PGA DFS lineups.
