The Expert Roundtable article is an attempt to get you inside the minds of our PGA DFS staff for every tournament.

Our four top golf writers - Joe Nicely, Spencer Aguiar, Josh Bennett, and Tommy Bell - will answer the same set of questions each week to give you an idea of how they are viewing the PGA DFS slate. Let's tee it up!


Who is your favorite DFS value play?

  • Joe Nicely: Russell Henley ($7.1k) & Jason Kokrak ($7.0k)

  • Josh Bennett: SG: Approach
  • Tommy Bell: SG: Off-the-Tee, Proximity 175-200, SG: Around-the-Green


Who is your favorite DFS “dart throw”?

  • Joe Nicely: Bubba Watson ($7.3k) & Cameron Smith ($6.8k)
  • Spencer Aguiar: Harry Higgs ($6,300), Joohyung Kim ($6,400) - Very minimal on Kim. There is a large level of combustibility present.  
  • Josh Bennett: Cameron Champ (6,400)
  • Tommy Bell: Adam Hadwin ($6,700)


What is your favorite bet of the week? (Any type)

  • Joe Nicely: Louis Oosthuizen (50/1), Bubba Watson (66/1)

Make a “bold prediction” for this week:

  • Joe Nicely: Brooks Koepka WDs
  • Spencer Aguiar: Justin Rose, Jason Day and Bubba Watson all come within the top-20
  • Josh Bennett: The winner is under 6500 on DK
  • Tommy Bell: Daniel Berger and Justin Thomas play 5 holes in a crazy playoff 


Who is your favorite overall DFS golfer and why?

  • Joe Nicely: Matt Wolff ($10.0k) - Love his length, current form, and confidence. 
  • Spencer Aguiar: Rory McIlroy ($10,600) - We are going to need the winner with this being a no-cut contest, and I am going to go heavy on the player that I think presents the best win equity for the week. 
  • Josh Bennett: Gary Woodland (7,700) - He's typically a top ball striker and is a much higher caliber player than his price. A birdie maker as well in a no-cut event at his price is always worth a shot even in poor form.
  • Tommy Bell: Joaquin Niemann ($7,500) - Solid course fit. HUGE upside. A very low price tag. What else can I ask for?


What is your optimal DFS lineup building strategy?

  • Joe Nicely: Stars & Scrubs
  • Spencer Aguiar: Stars & Scrubs
  • Josh Bennett: Balanced
  • Tommy Bell: Fairly balanced


Who is your pick to win the tournament?

  • Joe Nicely: Matthew Wolff
  • Spencer Aguiar: Rory McIlroy
  • Josh Bennett: Justin Thomas
  • Tommy Bell: Daniel Berger
