DraftKings PGA Lineup: Masters 2017 Optimal Picks

It's Masters week, which means the entire sports world will turn its attention to Augusta National for the year's first major. If you haven't been paying close attention to the PGA Tour this year, that's alright. Here's a quick update:

Dustin Johnson can't stop winning--but still apparently isn't playing as well as he can. Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy are also still pretty good. Hideki Matsuyama and Justin Thomas each looked unstoppable earlier in the year, nabbing multiple wins each, but they've cooled off a bit as of late. Jon Rahm has gone from rising star to bonafide star real quick, and he's been outside the Top 10 just once since late January. Defending Masters champ Danny Willett is struggling, as is two-time Green Jacket winner Bubba Watson. And Tiger Woods isn't playing, as you might have guessed.

Ultimately, the DJ-Spieth-Rory trio is considered to be in a tier of its own in terms of contenders, head-and-shoulders above the rest, and it wouldn't be all that surprising if all three were in contention come Sunday afternoon. But with the steady increase of young stars combined with the presence of steady veterans, it's a really deep field with a long list of players capable of capturing the Green Jacket.

In terms of DFS, the Masters is always tough because the strong field creates a lot of intriguing value and potential sleeper picks. Creating a couple of different lineups is suggested, but you can click through the gallery for a closer look at my ideal picks. (Getty)
