Dr. Roto’s Visionary PGA DFS Picks for the Sony Open

Jordan Spieth—if I had only one lineup to make, he would be in it.

Justin Thomas—Won here last year, but if I only can choose expensive player, I will choose Spieth.

Marc Leishman—Solid course history (CH) and in best form of his career.

Brian Harman—My under the radar pick to win this week.

Kevin Kisner—Has sparkled here the last two years.

Webb Simpson—His putting has improved dramatically in the last six months—he has always been one of the best ball strikers on tour.

Russell Henley—Some recency bias after last week’s disappointment so you might get him at less ownership.

Tony Finau—Great scorer on DK.

Charles Howell III—Course horse.

Cameron Smith—You might not know him just yet, but by the end of the season you will be using him regularly in your lineups.

Jamie Lovemark—I don’t expect him to win, but a top ten result is more than possible.

Chez Reavie—I am fading him. His 8 th last year was a result of a 61 on the final day. That should not happen again. I will use him at Riviera for sure.

Brian Gay—Think he flies at lower ownership due to Gary Woodland’s CH and the fact that they are so close in price.Austin Cook—This kid is going to be a great player someday soon and his ownership should be low.

Jason Dufner—I am worried that at 7300 he will be too highly owned.

Hudson Swafford—Always seems to get out to a lead and then struggles over the weekend. A Cut maker.

Fabian Gomez—Won this tournament in 2016. No one will own him. If I go with a stars and scrubs lineup, he could make one or two teams.

Stewart Cink—Won’t put up big numbers but should make the cut and he’s dirt cheap.

Kyle Stanley—Has played well here in the past and could be a good scrub to throw into a stars and scrubs lineup at 7300.

Dominic Bozzelli—If you are looking for a crazy flyer to save money.

Ryan Armour—See Dominic Bozzelli.
