2017 PLAYERS Championship Sleepers and Longshots

Although you should be getting your "Expert Golf Picks" for the 2017 Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass from the guys at Golfbanker.com, the reality is most people are simply typing the term “Sleeper Picks for the 2017 Players Championship” into Google and are in desperate need of a longshot or 2 for their fantasy golf pools or longshot bets.

We would never recommend choosing sleeper picks to win the Players Championship outright, but sleepers are best for fantasy golf lineups at top DFS Golf sites. Right now, there is a HUGE Fantasy Golf Contest running for the TPC Sawgrass and you can get in for FREE just for joining and making any small deposit.

Sleepers for the 2017 PLAYERS Championship

As for the list of 2017 Players Championship Fantasy Golf Sleepers, we have them below - these guys will be a low cost option to use at daily fantasy golf sites, so that you can fit in top players like Spieth, Johnson or Rory at the top of your fantasy golf lineup. Most of these golfers are longshots to win the The Players Championship (and probably won’t win) but should play through the weekend and help you cash in for the Free Fantasy Golf Contest. Also, these Sleepers are players that we predict will be under average in salary cap money as the lineups won't be posted until Monday before the tournament.

2017 TPC Fantasy Golf Sleeper Picks

Ollie SchniederjansOllie Schniederjans – I love using Schniederjans for my fantasy golf lineups because he is usually a hit or miss pick and when he hits he’s such a low cost that he more than makes up value. I wouldn’t use him in every one of your PLAYERS Championship lineups but I would stick him into a few. At FanDuel I would only use him in rounds 1-2.

Soren Kjeldsen Soren Kjeldsen – We liked him as a Masters Sleeper and he was great until the final round when he blew up for a 78. He still finished in 36th place which is great for a Sleeper Pick. He faced the TPC Sawgrass island hole last year and finished in 43rd which is respectable. He will be a low cost at all daily fantasy golf sites and worth a look for your Sleepers list.

Adam Hadwin Adam Hadwin – Hadwin makes our Sleepers list because he will be underpriced compared to all the Favorites to win the 2017 PLAYERS Championship. He has been solid all year and has a win under his belt. Finished tied for 39th last year and should have a top 25 in him possibly this year.

Emiliano Grillo Emiliano Grillo – Grillo will be under the radar for fantasy players because he’s having a bit of a sophomore slump on Tour and missed the cut his only time at THE PLAYERS. He has too much talent and at a low salary cap cost he’s a great sleeper pick to put into a bunch of lineups.

Martin KaymerMartin Kaymer – Probably the highest Sleeper Pick but he is generally still a great value price for your salary cap. Winner in 2014 and has never missed a cut playing TPC Sawgrass so he is a horse for the course who is having a great 2017 already. He won’t be cheap but he won’t be a pick that many people will have.

Byeong Hun An  Byeong Hun An – He makes cuts! He is a low cost sleeper pick that makes cuts and if you need that final golfer to finish your lineup you could do much worse. He did miss the cut in his only appearance at the PLAYERS but he shot a 68 in the second round which shows that he could actually tame the course.
