DraftKings PGA Lineup: Byron Nelson Championship 2017 Optimal Picks

With the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship set to head to Trinity Forest Golf Club in 2018, the TPC Four Seasons in Irving, Texas, will serve as host for the last time this week. This course has seen a handful of legendary champions over the years--Fred Couples, Ernie Els, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia and Jason Day--and it wouldn't be surprising if another elite player raised the trophy again on Sunday afternoon.

That's due in large part to a field that is considerably top-heavy. Day, Garcia, Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth give the event four players inside the world Top-10, and the second and third tiers are also pretty strong, but the talent level quickly drops off after that. In terms of DFS and DraftKings, if you're going to use players in the $7,000-and-lower range--and that will likely be a necessity if you're going to have any of the studs in your lineup--you're going to have to sort through a lot of unexciting players with plenty of flaws.

The weakness of the lower-half of the field makes Johnson a particularly interesting option in DraftKings circles. His price ($12,500) means you'll have to settle for an ugly option or two, but with the way the world No. 1 is playing, fading him is also an extremely dangerous proposition. What DFS players ultimately decide to do with DJ will ultimately be a major factor this week.
