2016 PGA Tour Sleeper Picks

PGA Tour Sleeper PicksPGA Tour sleeper picks – for season long fantasy golf players it is a list to use to fill in remaining spots in a salary cap roster. For daily fantasy golf players, a list of sleeper picks like this is less valuable because by the time you get into the beginning of the 2016 calendar year and tournaments are being played in Hawaii, these sleepers may already have shot up the salary cap list and are no longer the bargains or longshots that they were at the beginning of the 2015/2016 PGA Tour season.

Nonetheless, these sleeper picks may be of some value to DFS Golf players as a reference of some rookies that you may have missed, or some players that had a down year and are ranked lower due to their earnings last year.

Just keep some of these names in mind when you make your week to week lineups. Last year for our DraftKings lineups we kept dropping Hideki Matsuyama into our lineups because no matter how well he did, or how many cuts he made, his price was always favorable for daily fantasy golf lineups. Although he wasn’t a sleeper pick by the end of the year, in the fall season using him helped cash in a bunch of GPP tournaments like the Drive the Green Fantasy Golf Contest or their popular PGA Birdie Contests.

In no particular order, here is our list of PGA Tour Sleeper picks for 2016

2015 - 2016 PGA Tour Fantasy Golf Sleeper Picks

Patrick Rodgers Patrick Rodgers – Rodgers played both on the Web.com and PGA Tour last year and had a 2nd and a 3rd place finish in 2 PGA Tournaments. The 23 year old is a risk/reward play for both fantasy golf formats so check him out when doing your research.

Will Wilcox Will Wilcox – Wilcox made $1.17 Million in 17 PGA Tour events last year and he will probably play as much as possible in 2015-2016. Look for him to have a bunch of top 10’s in 2016 so he will be a great pick for either fantasy golf format.

Graeme McDowell Graeme McDowell – Former US Open Champion only earned $686,000 in 2014-2015. Heck, just one second place finish in 2015-2016 will make him that much. His majors exemption is expiring this year so he will be motivated to play enough and collect enough earnings to not lose his status on the PGA Tour. He still plays on the European Tour so look for him to only play 15-20 events here.

Emiliano GrilloEmiliano Grillo – Will be talked about as a possible Rookie of the Year on the PGA Tour. He is a great value for season long pools since he earned next to nothing in 2015 but he won’t remain low cost at DraftKings for long…this kid can play! ***UPDATE*** As we are writing this, Grillo has won the 2015 Frys.com Open. He may not be a sleeper for too much longer.

Patton Kizzire Patton Kizzire – Kizzire finished at the top of the Web.com Tour money list and being a rookie, Kizzire’s numbers have no where to go but up! Look for him to play around 30 PGA Tour events and he’ll avoid the reshuffle which makes him a safe pick for a season long league. As with all rookies, he will be hit and miss for DFS lineups, but his salary cap price will remain low unless he starts to string together good finishes.

Graham DeLaet Graham DeLaet – The injury big killed his 2015 season and if he remains healthy he should play enough to get back to his $2 Million + salary earnings that he had in previous years. If DeLaet stays healthy he’ll make a great sleeper pick for you in either DFS or for the full year..
