That means it's time to pick your optimal DraftKings fantasy golf lineup. Fortunately, our DFS golf experts are ready to help. 

Here's what our best AT&T Pebble Beach 2018 lineup looks like:

Dustin Johnson ($11,700)

After a disastrous week last week (thanks, Hideki), we have to have a short memory to get back on track. So who better to lead our charge than Mr. Short-Term Memory himself? DJ is rested after a January jaunt to Abu Dhabi, where he finished T9. He’s finished no worse than T14 in his four starts this season, and he’s a Pebble pacesetter, with two wins and three top 5s in the last decade. He’s expensive, but you gotta spend it to make it.  

Pat Perez ($8,600)

It’s his first start of the year in the lower 48, but he’s fourth in FedExCup points and already has four top 5s (including a win) on the young season. His solid Pebble history — three top 15s in his last four trips — completes the picture.

Patrick Reed ($7,900)

After a missed cut at the Career Builders, Reed’s been trending in the right direction, with a T23 at the Farmers and a T17 in Phoenix. He has two top 10s at Pebble, with a final-round scoring average of 68.20. The combustible Reed is overdue for an eruption. 

J.B. Holmes ($7,400)

J.B. sandwiched a pair of missed cuts around a solo fourth at the Farmers, but he’s been money at Pebble, where he’s 10-for-11 in cuts made and has six career top 25s. He’s bombing it as always (seventh in strokes gained: off the tee) and is also rolling the ball well (seventh in sg: putting). 

Kevin Streelman ($7,300)

Streelman’s a sneaky-solid bargain play this week. He’s eight-for-eight this season in cuts made, with four top 25s, and he’s six for his last seven at Pebble, with back-to-back top 20s. He’s sixth on Tour in bogey avoidance and seventh in scrambling. Nothing flashy here, just check-cashing consistency. 

Scott Piercy ($7,000)

This one’s purely a hunch play based on some positive statlines: eighth in sg: approach the green, 12th in birdie or better percentage, 18th in sg: ball striking. Plus, there was that tasty T6 at the CareerBuilder. We’d take that all day long.
