Kyle Stanley — $7,400

The past few years have been rough for this native of Gig Harbor, Washington, but it seems that Stanley finally has his career moving in the right direction. He’s been one of the great comeback stories of the 2017 season, and while he still needs to work on his consistency, the 29-year-old has a lot of fantasy potential at this week’s Memorial Tournament.

With three top-20 finishes in his last five starts, including a tie for fourth at THE PLAYERS Championship and a tie for eighth at the Shell Houston Open, Stanley has been been holding his own against some tough fields. He’ll hope to continue that trend at Muirfield Village, where he’s the owner of an eye-catching but ultimately uneven track record: he’s made three of four cuts with a bronze finish in 2013 but nothing else inside the top 35.  He hasn’t qualified for this event in a few years, but at sixth on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: off-the-tee and fourth in strokes gained: approach-the-green, he’s got the right skill set to make a stylish return.

At $7,400 in DraftKings, Stanley is priced fairly for a player who’s logged as many low rounds as he has this year. He looks ready for another dose of Memorial success.
