The rebooted PGA Tour rolls on this week with the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic. Nate Lashley will return to defend his title along with former U.S. Amateur champion Doc Redman, who was last year’s runner-up. Former world No. 1 and 12-time PGA Tour winner Jason Day will make his Rocket Mortgage Classic debut when play begins on Thursday at Detroit Golf Club. But are Lashley, Redman and Day the top PGA DFS picks?
With FedEx Cup points leader Webb Simpson, Bryson DeChambeau, Rickie Fowler, Sungjae Im and Patrick Reed among the field of elite players, Rocket Mortgage Classic PGA DFS tournaments on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel will provide plenty of drama. Should you go with a pre-tournament favorite for your 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic DFS picks or choose players who are more affordable? Before entering these PGA DFS tournaments or any others for the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic, you’ll want to see the top PGA DFS picks, advice and player pool from 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.
Two weeks ago at the RBC Heritage, McClure was extremely high on Webb Simpson. The result: Simpson shot 22-under par and finished on top of the crowded leaderboard, earning his second PGA Tour victory this season. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge weekend.
Now, McClure has set his sights on this week’s event 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 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic.
Top Rocket Mortgage Classic PGA DFS picks
One of McClure’s top PGA DFS picks for the Rocket Mortgage Classic 2020: Aaron Wise at $6,700 on DraftKings and $8,600 on FanDuel. The 2018 Byron Nelson Classic champion is coming off a strong performance at the Travelers Championship in which Wise recorded four straight sub-70 rounds.
The 24-year-old played well at the inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic last season, opening with a pair of 69s and finishing 35th. Wise is one of the most accurate players on tour this season, ranked eighth by hitting 72.2 percent of greens in regulation. Wise also has a low finish under his belt this season, taking third at the Bermuda Championship. With a strong history in Detroit and accurate play this season, Wise can return tournament-winning value at an affordable price this week.
McClure’s optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Sungjae Im at $9,800 on DraftKings and $10,400 on FanDuel.
Im, who’s finished inside the top-10 in three of his last five starts, is an almost sure-fire bet to be near the top of the leaderboard come Sunday. Im enters this week’s event hitting over 68 percent (68.58) of greens in regulation this season, which results in more birdie opportunities and more chances to rack up points on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings. The 22-year-old has racked up 274 birdies in just 64 rounds this season, which ranks 14th on Tour. Lock him in your PGA DFS lineup and look for a big return this week at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
