This week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic features a much weaker field than we have seen recently. As a result, targeting talented golfers relative to the field that may not receive substantial ownership in PGA DFS contests could result in a significant payoff.Beyond Dustin Johnson, whose odds are nearly twice as high as any other golfer’s in the field at 14.3 percent, there don’t appear to be too many bona fide studs available. However, Johnson is only one golfer and is certainly not guaranteed to succeed given the volatility of golf. He also should command considerable ownership at a very steep price, potentially unwrapping value elsewhere.

The others, both at 6.7 percent, are Gary Woodland and Hideki Matsuyama. There are a couple of main reasons why I expect Fowler to be the lowest owned despite his odds advantage. First and foremost, he’s the most expensive of the three. Given similar odds, many will prioritize the discount. Additionally, Woodland and Matsuyama have been playing better than Fowler recently. To be clear, it’s not that Fowler has been bad, he just hasn’t been playing up to his usual standards with only one top-25 finish in his past four tournaments and no top-10 finishes. In comparison, Woodland just won the U.S. Open, and Matsuyama has top-25 finishes in all of his past four tournaments, including a top-10. Despite these recent results, there is a reason why Fowler’s odds remain higher than the others, which is quite simply that his long-term results are superior. At what will likely be the lowest ownership of the four studs in the field, you can roster the second best long-term golfer. That’s an opportunity to leverage. Repeatedly ignored in DFS, Patrick Reed is an excellent play this week. Although Reed has had a remarkably quiet season with only one top-10 finish, it hasn’t been as bad as it may seem. In 18 tournaments, Reed has only missed two cuts, and despite the lack of top-10 finishes, he has racked up eight top-25 finishes. The solid, if unspectacular, play is an indicator that Reed has lacked a breakout this season more so than something being wrong with him. With a T32 two weeks ago at the U.S. Open and a T30 last week at the Travelers Championship, Reed could be on the cusp of an even better result. In this week’s field, there isn’t much outside of the top four that outranks Reed’s ability. Considering his unenticing game log and general lack of DFS attention, along with modest odds at 2.9 percent, I don’t think he will generate much ownership. All of this combines to make him a possible GPP difference-maker.It’s been a tale of two streaks for Charles Howell III this season, who took off with four top-10 finishes and a win at the RSM Classic, but he has since proceeded to slump horrendously in his past six tournaments with four missed cuts and no finish better than T41. As a result of his slide, Howell’s price has been discounted immensely considering the field, but his performance has been too poor to command considerable ownership. At less than average salary, Howell is appealing based on his talent alone compared to other salary-saving alternatives, but there are other indicators in his favor. Howell ranks sixth on tour in greens-in-regulation percentage, which is a good statistic to rank well in on an unknown course. We don’t have any history or data to rely on for this week’s course, but Howell’s game should be a strong fit for any course if he continues to lead in GIR. In addition, he has made two out of his past three cuts, including one on a difficult course in his last tournament at the U.S. Open, so it’s possible that Howell is ready to shake off the slump. In such a weak field, Howell has the skill set to surprise at both a low price and low ownership.Aaron White graduated from Northwestern University with a B.A. in Economics.
