Welcome to Playing the Tips! 

Each week this will be the one-stop resource to soak in all the picks from our fantasy staffers at Rotoworld.com. 

Page 1 is going to look at Daily Fantasy Sports picks (FanDuel, Yahoo, and DraftKings).

Page 2 will have a look at One-and-Done options as well as PGATOUR.com's fantasy game. 

Daily Fantasy Sports [DFS]

I will be giving out selections for one team for each DFS site, per week. 

These lineups will be entered into a large-entry Guaranteed Prize Pool. That means we need to take a risk or two, in order to separate ourselves from the field. 

The idea is to provide you a list of names to consider. I would not recommend copying these teams, golfer for golfer. Duplicate teams are no fun and don't help anyone. 

FanDuel Picks:

Joel Dahmen (9,900): Has beat the field average in 7 of his last 8 rounds played. He's rounding back into form and has finished top 25 in both trips to Corales. 

Roger Sloan (8,800): Flashing go-low potential with 10 rounds of 2 or more strokes gained over the field, since the start of 2019. 

Matt Every (9,500): Finished T35 in his Corales debut last year. More recently, he's pieced together top 35s in 8 of his last 10 starts across the PGA and WEB. 

Nate Lashley (10,800): Won at the Corales Golf Course in 2017. Returned to finish T28 last year. Enters with four top 20s over his last eight starts. 

Denny McCarthy (11,000): Convergint trends with a top 10 at the Valspar last week and a top 5 in his Corales debut last year. 

Adam Schenk (9,400): The Purdue product is 3-for-3 at the Corales with strokes gained over the field in 10-of-12 rounds played here. 


DraftKings Picks: 

Sungjae Im (11,300): His salary popped up nearly $4k overnight but I want to ride this train into the winner's station. 

Dominic Bozzelli (8400): A past champ at the Corales Golf Club. 

Kyoung-Hoon Lee (7500): Was the 36-hole leader here in 2017 and also shared a piece of the 54-hole lead that year. I'm going to forgive his mid-tourney WD last week and hope the "injury" isn't serious.  

Hudson Swafford (7300): He always finds a way to pelt greens in regulation which is huge on a course like Corales which features receptive greens. He should have lots of birdie looks this week. 

Carlos Ortiz (7200): He loves to poung driver so this wide-open Fazio design should fit his eye. That was true in 2017 when he finished T8 here. 

Jonathan Byrd (8,300): Should be low owned this week since there are plenty of juicy value options below him. Picking a slightly-overpriced Byrd should help keep the lineup unique. We don't want a duplicate lineup. Byrd has seen this course twice and is 2-for-2 with a T30 and T54. 

Yahoo Picks: 

Sungjae Im (45): We knew the young Korean had a world of upside when he dominated the Web last year but we didn't know if his rise would happen so fast. Playing against a glorified Web field this week, Im should be comfortable and the odds board reflects that as he's co-favorite alongside Jhonny Vegas. 

Nate Lashley (24): Won at Corales when it was a Web event. Playing the final start of his medical extension. He won't want to waste the opportunity. 

Trey Mullinax (32): Fired a 9-under 63 in R1 of the 2017 Puerto Rico Open, another lengthy resort course. Finished T22 here last year. 

Adam Schenk (28): Three top 30s in his last four starts. He's made an appearance at all three editions of the Corales (3-for-3).

Joel Dahmen (38): Snapped out of a slump at THE PLAYERS and backed it up with a top 30 at the Valspar. 

Denny McCarthy (33): Posted a top 10 last week at the Valspar and finished top 5 here last year.
