If you read our Power Rankings for this week, you already know that I’m high on Scott’s chances to turn in a big finish at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. And, as much as I like him in the overall sense, he’s an even better value when it comes to daily fantasy.
At just $8,800 on DraftKings, Scott comes in with the 14th-highest salary in the field. While he’s struggled to get serious momentum going this year on the PGA TOUR, that’s still incredible value for the return you can expect.
Scott has five career top-ten finishes at Firestone, with three of those – including his 2011 victory – coming over the last six years. Scott is definitely trending up at one of the most difficult, yet fair, tracks on the TOUR schedule.
If you need more reasons to buy into Adam Scott this week, consider this. Even in a relatively “down” year by his standards, he’s got four top-ten finishes, including recently at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Scott still also ranks 31st in greens-in-regulation, 26th in birdie average, and 15th in adjusted scoring.
Scott’s long enough to keep up with Firestone, too. All he needs is one week to put it together for four rounds. He’s done it here before, and he can do it again.
