Luke Donald — $7,800

This Englishman hasn’t been playing well lately, but his incredible knowledge of Harbour Town should see him through to a solid finish nevertheless. It seems like Donald knows every blade of grass on this course, so he deserves plenty of fantasy consideration even if the results haven’t been there this season.

A four-time runner-up at the RBC Heritage, it once seemed like more of a matter of when than if Donald was going to win this tournament. At 39 years old and with his game far below what it once was, that eventual victory lap appears to be less of a guarantee, but you can’t argue with his track record, which also includes a pair of third-place finishes. What’s more, Donald still ranks among the PGA Tour’s top players in strokes gained: putting. While he’s come up empty in recent weeks, a solid run in the month of February is proof that he can still thrive under the right conditions.

At just $7,800 in DraftKings, Donald has a chance to provide some big-time fantasy value this week. He’s inconsistent, so there will be some risk involved, but this looks like a great opportunity to get a top five from the middle of your lineup.
