Ross Fisher — $7,100

This European Tour star is a bit of an enigma heading into this event, but it’s hard to not be tempted by Fisher’s bargain price. Thanks to his inexperience on this side of the pond, the Englishman is available at a big discount. He should be a popular pick among fantasy managers, especially those who prefer to live closer to the edge.

With five top 10s in his last seven starts, Fisher has been hitting it nicely for weeks now. That stretch includes a tie for third at the WGC-Mexico Championship, a tie for fifth at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and a tie for ninth just last week at the BMW PGA Championship, so he’s been rising to the occasion on all different types of courses and in all different locales. With any luck, he’ll be able to carry that success over to the Memorial Tournament this week. Muirfield Village will be a new experience for him but his great ball striking should still see him through to a solid finish.

Fisher is an unproven commodity this week, but it’s not every day you’re able to snag the world No. 43 for $7,100 in DraftKings. Slot him in and hope that his recent success is the real deal.
