DailyRoto Fantasy Golf: Arnold Palmer Invitational DraftKings and FanDuel Strategy

March 14, 2017

On this week’s DailyRoto PGA Podcast, Mike, Drewby, and Pacheco talk about the launch of FanDuel golf. There may be an edge early before the average user adjusts to the appropriate strategy.

Moving onto DraftKings picks for the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Mike is looking to hammer a studs and duds approach. The gang mostly agrees, and takes a look at the values needed around $6,500-7,600 to make this roster construction work. Who are the chalk complementary pieces, and who can you pivot to in GPPs? Finally, Mike, Drewby, and Pacheco draft a winning tournament team! Well, as long as Pacheco didn’t screw it up.

DailyRoto Fantasy Golf: Valspar Championship DraftKings Strategy

March 8, 2017

On this edition of the DailyRoto Golf Podcast (time stamps below), Christian Drappi and Christopher Pacheco team up to give you the word about the Valspar Championship. 

They start by talking about the course, the famed Copperhead Course at the Innisbrook Resort and then jump into the DraftKings high end values. The tournament is hosting 19 of the top 30 in the FedEx Cup Standings this week and is highlighted by Henrik Stenson who is coming off a damaging DFS withdrawal at the WGC Mexico Championship. Will he redeem himself this week? 

Next the guys talk about some of their favorite value ways, having some fun with their names along the way. 

Last but not least, they talk about some tournament strategy to prepare you for a winning week of GPP action! Enjoy the show!

DailyRoto Fantasy Golf: WGC Mexico Championship DraftKings Strategy

February 28, 2017

On this week’s DailyRoto Fantasy Golf Podcast, Leone, Pacheco, and Drewby discuss the WGC Mexico Championship played in Mexico City at very high altitude. It’s a 70 man field, no cut event featuring a plethora of the world’s top golfers. The combination of a loaded field and no cut event makes the edge a bit tougher to realize in cash games, and the guys talk about how to approach bankroll management this week.

We’ve got four golfers up top in Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson that do separate themselves from the field. Recent form edge goes to Johnson and Spieth, but Stenson’s price tag and skill set leaves him as the best value of the bunch. Pacheco is certainly on the Stenson bandwagon.

After talking about their preferences up top, the guys wade through their favorite DraftKings value plays on a week where it’s difficult to differentiate between so many strong golfers. A big part of this conversation is weighing the importance of recent form, and recent tee to green stats lead Leone to Sergio Garcia, Adam Scott, and Paul Casey as potentially lower owned plays with high upside. Meanwhile Drewby will take a slightly more studs and duds approach, trying to maximize his odds of getting a top five performance up top while focusing on DraftKings scoring down low with guys like Bubba Watson and JB Holmes, who have the ability to finish with as many DraftKings points as more expensive golfers even if they place 10 spots higher.

The show rounds out with a discussion of some betting and One and Done advice. Betting T-20 results on some Euro players like Rafael Cabrera-Bello and Martin Kaymer appears to be a positive expected value move. In One and Done circles, strategy is going to depend on scoring format (Prize Money or FedEx Points).

DailyRoto Fantasy Golf: Honda Classic and Joburg Open DraftKings Strategy

February 22, 2017

On this edition of the DailyRoto Fantasy Golf Podcast, Logan, Pacheco, and Christian (The Albatross) break down the Honda Classic and Joburg Open. We cover the (perhaps better?!) pricing from the week and talk about whether or not the elite Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia will be chalk. We also go back to the well with discussion on Franceso Molinari and Brooks Koepka, deciding whether or not they are worthy of fitting into our lineups this week at DraftKings. 

 

Last but not least we talk a bit about the Joburg Open taking place in Johannesburg, South Africa this week. The field is loaded with golfers, but none of them are particularly skillful. We debate the merits of deciding tournament lineups based on a course start, country of origin and player last name. 

Will a geoglogical team of Brandon Stone and Robert Rock be the winning formula this week?

DailyRoto Fantasy Golf: Genesis Open DraftKings Strategy

February 14, 2017

On this edition of the DailyRoto Fantasy Golf Podcast, Logan, Pacheco, and Christian (The Albatross) break down the Genesis Open. We cover how this course will play (the majority of approach shots will come from 150-200 yards), what your cash game roster construction should look like on DraftKings and general golf nonsense.

Speaking of roster construction, DraftKings’ pricing is broken once again, and the chalk plays are seemingly everywhere (we see you, Brooks!). This looks like a strong week to run multiple cash game lineups.   

If paying up for a golfer, Pacheco and Logan love Jason Day (once he gets his putter going, forget it) while Christian thinks that $7,100 for Brooks Koepka is beyond absurd. The group also shares their favorite tournament pivots at different price points while trying to decipher who should be the “chalk” in cash games.

Finally, Logan makes fun of Pacheco for liking Ryan Palmer a couple of weeks ago and the group can’t stop talking about how tall and handsome Thomas Pieters is.

DailyRoto Fantasy Golf: AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am DraftKings Strategy

February 7, 2017

On this edition of the DailyRoto Fantasy Golf Podcast, Leone, Drewby, and Albatross break down the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am. We cover the event structure (3 courses, cut after 3 rounds), how the courses will play (lots of approach shots from 100-150 yards out on three shorter courses), and what your cash game roster construction should look like on DraftKings.

Speaking of which, we recap last week’s experimental pricing on DK and how that altered strategy and ownership. The Albatross combination of spread the risk and eliminating unskilled golfers was very successful with last week’s setup, and we revisit the strategy for this week.

If paying up for a golfer, Drewby and Leone like Jordan Spieth (great tee to green recently, watch out for him when that putter gets hot!) but discuss the merits of Dustin Johnson and Jason Day as well. However, a balanced roster construction means an emphasis on value plays and you’ll hear the group’s favorites, such as Jim Furyk.

Finally, Leone begrudgingly pays up on a lost Super Bowl bet to Drewby, and the two live draft their shared entry into this week’s $333 GPP on DraftKings.

January 31, 2017

On this edition of the DailyRoto Golf Podcast (time stamps below), Logan, Chris and Christian discuss everything you need to know for this week’s PGA and EURO golf events. This week the PGA Tour heads to TPC Scottsdale for the Waste Management Open, while the European Tour makes their stop in Dubai for the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

We start with our favorite One and Done plays and overall strategy. Then we talk about our bets of the week. We have our own gambling group here at DailyRoto so we go through our thought process for evaluating wagers.

Then we kick off the talk about DFS pricing. This week the salaries are particularly crazy. We go into our favorite chalk plays, GPP strategy, exploitive play and optimal strategy.

Logan, Chris and Christian close the pod out with some Euro DFS talk. We mention a few names that stick out, like Tiger Woods, and how we're overall approaching the slate.

DailyRoto Fantasy Golf: Farmers Insurance 02:25 / Qatar Masters 43:40

January 24, 2017

On this edition of the DailyRoto Golf Podcast (time stamps below), Logan, Christian (aka Albatross, the man behind the DailyRoto projections), and Mike discuss everything you need to know for this week’s PGA and EURO golf events. The trio takes a look at the set up at Torrey Pines for the PGA Farmers Insurance Open. The South Course, where three of four rounds will be played, is one of the longest on tour.

Following a course overview, they break down both overall One and Done strategy and some names to consider for this week’s selection, such as Byeong-Hun An. If you’re a bettor, there are gambling picks for you. Betting Ryan Blaum for a Top 10 or Top 20 finish is a positive expected value bet.

The DFS conversation of course starts with Tiger Woods, who is priced at $7,900 on DraftKings. What do you do with him? We’ll let you know and also look at who the chalk plays will be (hint: recent form matters), how to deal with that in GPPs, and some of our other favorites this week.

Logan, Mike, and Christian close the pod out with some Euro DFS talk. The first two weeks have been disappointing, but the guys have a handle on roster construction for this week. However, Mike does not have a handle on how to pronounce anyone’s name correctly.

January 17, 2017

The DailyRoto gang (Mike Leone, Christian Drappi, Colin Drew) recaps Christian's $15,000 win on DraftKings last week and goes over their respective PGA DFS tournament strategies. After enough self gloating comes a breakdown of the Career Builder Challenge format (three different courses, cut after three round), how to handle Phil Mickleson's health, and a breakdown of favorite values (Rahm GOAT!). The trio finishes the podcast with a discussion of the EURO DFS Slate, including some cheap plays like Chris Wood that you can use to force in studs like Henrik Stenson into your lineups.
