2017 Safeway Open Picks and Tournament Preview

Safeway Open LogoWell fantasy golf players have survived the month long drought of no PGA Tour fantasy games to play and if you are ready to take the money you made last year playing in our affiliate partner DraftKings Fantasy Golf contests to build your bankroll for this year - then the Safeway Open golf PGA Tournament is the perfect place to start.

The Safeway Open field of golfers is generally a bit weaker for fantasy golf as most of the biggest PGA Tour players take a bit of a break but you may still want to play a hot golfer that finished off the season well in the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

2017 Safeway Open Tourney Preview

The 2017 Safeway Open heads back to the Silverado golf course in Napa Valley to start the new 2017/2018 PGA Tour Schedule. Usually the Safeway Open field of golfers is a weak one, aside from Phil Mickelson who has committed to playing, there isn't a lot of star power. Most of the golfers for your Safeway Open DraftKings Picks will be either new players on tour or regular tour players trying to grind out a career. If you are making DraftKings Picks for a Safeway Open Golf Fantasy contest maybe look into getting help from experts like RotoQL.com. They provide expert picks and analysis that can help you make your own Safeway Open DraftKings Picks or you can simply rely on their expert picks and make your lineups that way. Either way, they help us cash in our fantasy golf lineups quite a bit and we have kept our membership with them for a couple of years now.
