Fantasy Golf Picks: The AT&T Byron Nelson

Here's what our best AT&T Byron Nelson 2018 lineup looks like for DraftKings:

 

Jimmy Walker ($9,500)

A year removed from a Lyme disease diagnosis, Walker seems to be healthy and back on track. In fact, since The Masters, Walker’s been downright dyn-o-mite — T20, 4, T25 and a T2 at The Players, where he was the only player with four rounds of 70 or better. He’s becoming a real force with the putter, which makes him money on an unfamiliar venue.  

   

Beau Hossler ($9,000)

Trinity Forest is a new venue for this event, so Hossler’s the closest thing to a course horse this week — it’s his home club, and he lives nearby, meaning he’ll be sleeping in his own bed while others are choking down late-night room service. Hossler’s especially comfy in the Lone Star State; he finished solo second in Houston recently. 

 

Charles Howell III ($8,700)

CH3 keeps lurking — he’s missed one cut in 12 appearances in 2018, with two top 10s and seven top 25s, including five in his last six starts. He’s 14th on Tour in greens in regulation, and 26th in adjusted scoring. Don’t expect a win, just a healthy payday.   

 

Martin Laird ($7,900)

Laird has three top-11 finishes in his last seven events. He can roll the rock — he’s 21st in Strokes Gained: Putting. Scotsman should feel comfortable on the links-style layout at treeless Trinity Forest.  

 

Ryan Palmer ($7,800)

Not much to show for this season, but Palmer may have discovered something at The Players. After an opening 74, he went 67-69-69 to finish T23. Another Texan who enjoys the wind and wide-open spaces.  

 

Daniel Summerhays ($7,000)

His conditional status means a limited sample size, but he is coming off a top 10 on the Web.com in Knoxville, and he and playing partner Tony Finau managed a sixth-place showing at the Zurich. Another solid putter who may benefit from the unfamiliarity of the venue.
