The AT&T Byron Nelson is set for May 13-16 at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas. That means it's time to pick your optimal DraftKings fantasy golf lineup. Fortunately, our fantasy golf experts are ready to help.
Here's what our best AT&T Byron Nelson lineup looks like in this week's golfer predictions:
Jordan Spieth ($10,700)
This is Spieth's first action since The Masters; let's hope the mini-break does nothing to disrupt a phenomenal run of golf for the former World No. 1. Since his missed cut at the Farmers in late January, Spieth has gone scorched earth, with finishes of T4, T3, T15, T4, T48, T9, 1 and T3, rising from 92nd to 29th in the World Ranking in that span. His first win since 2017 came at the Valero a few weeks ago, and the Dallas native stays in his Metroplex comfort zone this week. Expect him to delight the locals as he builds momentum for next week's PGA Championship.
Brooks Koepka ($9,900)
Full disclosure — we really don't know what to expect out of Koepka this week. He was last seen limping to a missed cut at The Masters following untimely surgery to repair a knee ligament. He's fallen out of the World Top 10 thanks to Rory McIlroy's Wells Fargo win. All we know is that there's a major next week, and the four-time major champion was pissed off after his Masters MC. Those two factors make him dangerous. He's been hot and cold this year — four top 10s (including a win and a second) and four missed cuts — but we're anticipating another Koepka surge.
Aaron Wise ($8,300)
Wise is coming off a T9 at Wells Fargo, and he's a past champion of this event (granted, it was at a different venue). His ball-striking has been very solid this season — he's seventh in GIR and 26th in SG: Tee-to-Green. There's a feast-or-famine feel to his game sometimes, but he could be a sneaky value play this week.
Brandt Snedeker ($7,400)
Sneds is finally trending in the right direction — he finished T11 at the Wells Fargo, a few weeks after a T6 at the Valero, and his twosome finished T4 at the Zurich. We like catching guys on the upswing. He's burning more edges this year, falling to 56th in SG: Putting, but a few more of them are falling these days.
James Hahn ($7,100)
Not a lot of course history to go on this week — TPC Craig Ranch is a new venue for the Nelson — but what little there is points in Hahn's direction; he finished second here at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship in 2012. Admittedly, that's not much to chew on, so how about this: He has four top 10s this season, and that's as many as Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Collin Morikawa, among others. His recent results have been abysmal, so he's overdue to pop up with another out-of-nowhere top 10.
Sung Kang ($6,500)
Rarely can a defending champion be had at this price. That's what happens when the previous year's tournament gets canceled, the tournament changes venues and said defending champion is playing poorly (and that's being kind). Hey, he caught lightning in a bottle once; he can do it again, right?
