DraftKings

Sung Kang (7,300) - Has a pair of top 20s at this event and the first was a product of him firing his career-low round of 60 during round two of the 2016 edition. Should bring plenty of confidence to the table this week. 

Maverick McNealy (7,300) - Missed the cut here in his 2018 debut but he's flashing a bit of form this time with eight straight cuts made.

Daniel Berger (8,900) - His tee-to-green game is trending well and he finally popped for a top 10 last week. Trying to ride the hot hand here. 

Cameron Champ (8,800) - Playing well again after struggling for most of 2019. Finished T28 here last year in his tourney debut.

Chesson Hadley (7,100) - He racking up birdies at a ridiculous clip. If he can tone down the big numbers then a top-heavy finish is definitely in the cards. 

Brandt Snedeker (10,100) - Sneds and poa annua greens are a match made in heaven and this week's event is no different. He is 8-for-12 here with a pair of wins (2013, 2015).

FanDuel

Cameron Champ (10,000): The Cali native was slumping ahead of his 2019 AT&T Pro-Am debut but he still managed a T28 finish. The big hitter arrives in much better form this time around with seven straight worldwide top 35s.

Brandon Hagy (7,900): Sticking with the Cali Love, Hagy is one of the few mashers that can almost keep up with Champ off the tee. He's finished T34 and T33 in two tries at this event. 

Jason Day (11,500): He's still searching for his complete game but this event always seems to bring out the best in him. Perhaps it's the snail pace of the rounds! Day is 10-for-10 here with eight of those doubling as top 15s.

Phil Mickelson (10,800): I strong finish at the Saudi was enough to push my chips back in on the five-time AT&T Pro-Am champ.

Wyndham Clark (8,600): Roared early last week and brings a lot of power and confidence to the table. 

Viktor Hovland (10,700): Played well as an amateur at Pebble Beach so I like his chances of snapping out of the mini-slump he finds himself in. 

 

Yahoo DFS

Vaughn Taylor (35): The 2016 champ is playing extremely well right now so I will fire away.

Graeme McDowell (33): Coming off a win at the Saudi, jet lag is a concern but he will have the luxury of taking it easy before the event starts since he knows all these courses and has played them well in the past.

Xinjun Zhang (31): Not piecing together a lot of good scores lately but he's delivering birdies in bunches. A boom-or-bust pick here.

Branden Grace (30): Flashing a lot of form recently so let's ride the hot hand on a trio of seaside layouts.

Kurt Kitayama (35): The Chico native will be comfortable on poa annua greens and he brings two Euro Tour wins to the table.

Rafa Cabrera Bello (36): Didn't impress back home in the Middle East but he's now heading to one of his favorite venues for a chance to crack back into form before a busy Spring.
