Dustin Johnson is clearly a favorite to win the Masters, but is he worth the fantasy investment?

Every week is a thrilling one for PGA Tour fantasy managers, but there’s something about the hustle and bustle of Masters week that makes it all the more compelling. This is one of the most popular weeks of the year for fantasy golf, so don’t miss out on the gravy train set to roll into town after the green jacket is won — with a bit of savvy maneuvering, you can snag a piece of it.

While many prominent players have seen success through the first few months of 2017, several of the biggest stars in this week’s field will arrive at Augusta National Golf Club as question marks. Jason Day is returning to action after a personal tragedy, while Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson and Henrik Stenson missed the cut at last week’s Shell Houston Open. All four should be reasonably popular among fantasy managers this week, but it’s anyone’s guess as to how they’ll perform.

Ultimately, it might be a smart idea to try entering multiple lineups. After all, fantasy golf doesn’t get any better than it will this week, and with so many options to try, it could make your viewing experience doubly exciting.

Without further ado, here are five solid fantasy plays for this year’s Masters. Each player’s DraftKings salary is listed next to his name.
