Paul Casey — $7,800

This Englishman has a good track record at Augusta National and will carry some momentum into this week, giving him a chance to provide the best fantasy value of anyone in the field. Casey has been elevating his game in the world’s biggest events over the past couple of years, so you have to think he’s capable of making a run at a green jacket.

With three top 20s in his last four starts, including a couple of successful WGC outings, Casey has finally turned things around after a decidedly low-key winter. As a result, he’s climbed to fifth on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: around-the-green, a skill that should be tremendously helpful at Augusta this week. His putting might be cause for concern, but that part of his game has actually been on the upswing in recent weeks, so don’t be too alarmed. Perhaps most importantly, he’s found the top 10 at the Masters in each of the last two years, a note that speaks for itself.

Available at just $7,800 in DraftKings, Casey won’t break the bank, but he will have a chance to offer some star-level production this week. If his flatstick cooperates, expect him to hang around well into the weekend.
