Last Week, and Preview of this week.
Last week was a perfect example of why I think it is a great habit to get into playing DFS according to what the week presents. The previous two weeks before last week were Yellow/Red weeks, whereas last week was considered a Yellow/Green week. Personally I was able to capitalize on last week, and thus was able to make a profit over the last 3 weeks on the main slate due to this. It was such a fun PGA Championship as a whole. We got to see Phil become the "worst" winner ever in 925s Model which because it is Phil was pretty awesome. Besides Brian Harman choking it was a solid player pool week, and hopefully a sign for things to come!
This week we get the Charles Schwab Challenge played at Colonial Country Club played in Fort Worth, Texas. It is a 120 man field in which sure some of the edge is gone with it not being a full tournament field event but it is always nice to have an event with a cut. This is an event in which we see short knockers have an edge. Now sure a bomber can do well, but typically speaking this event is won (and lost) around the greens, or on approaches to the green.

TOP PLAYS THIS WEEK
Collin Morikawa ($10,500) - Let me start off with saying that if I had to pick one player to win this week it would be Morikawa. He is just consistently playing better than the field. We look back to last year Morikawa was able to come up with a 2nd place finish here after months off (Due to the pandemic). Morikawa has finished 8th, 7th, and 18th in his last 3 starts. He is the 6th best stat fit in the field, ranking bad in only his Effective Strokes Gained Around the Green. If he can have a decent week around the green he could (should) win this week.
Charley Hoffman ($8,700): I love Hoffman at this price point range. I think the only reason he is priced this low is because of his missed cut at this event last year. Prior to that he had 3 made cuts finishing 13th, 52nd, and 24th. Hoffman is in the 3rd best form of anyone in the field, making 10 straight cuts with 5 of his last 6 being top 18 or better finishes.
Matthew NeSmith ($7,300): NeSmith is really popping once again this week he is a top 12 stat fit, and top 25 in recent form rank. He has one made cut in one attempt at this course. To me he is the only clear cut play in this price point range, and a lot of that is due to the fact that he is a great play, but also a lot of that is simply because of his price point. Clearly priced too cheap.
The stand-out value play this week is Vincent Whaley. I really do not get the pricing of way as a play this week. He has made the cut in 9 straight events. His last events have been finishes of T38 or better. He simply keeps playing well, and this is a horrible price point. DK's theme this year is trying to force plays it seems like, and that is the case this week with Whaley.
