William McGirt — $7,900

This Carolina native plays his best on shorter, classic designs, and Harbour Town definitely qualifies. With his brand of accurate shotmaking and creativity around the greens, McGirt will have a great chance to pack a fantasy punch this week. And who knows — that second PGA Tour victory could be closer than you think.

Earlier this week, Mark Godich of Sports Illustrated wrote that McGirt was one of just two players to leave the Masters with a smile on his face, and while that’s probably an exaggeration, the 37-year-old should still be plenty pleased about his week at Augusta. He was contending in the earlier rounds before fading on the weekend and winding up in a tie for 22nd — not bad for a Masters debut. That, along with a tie for ninth at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, gives McGirt a top 25 in each of his last two PGA Tour starts. He’s also seen some success at the RBC Heritage over the years, going four-for-six with a pair of top 10s.

It looks like the stars are aligning for McGirt this week, and fantasy managers should take note. At just $7,900 in DraftKings, he’ll have a great chance to earn his salary at Harbour Town.
