2017 US Open DFS Lineup

The PGA Tour heads to Erin, Wisconsin and the Erin Hills Golf Club this week for the 2017 US Open. This will mark the PGA Tour’s first stop in Wisconsin and it likely wouldn’t have happened if the United States Golf Association hadn’t determined that it is an extremely difficult course. The course difficulty and relative inexperience should add to the excitement at the second major championship of the season. Here is a look at the optimal lineup for this week’s DraftKings PGA fantasy competitions.

Dustin Johnson $12,000

It wouldn’t be a surprise if every single DraftKings lineup for the US Open began with D.J. at the top of it. Johnson has two wins, five top-five finishes and seven top-10 finishes in his last 11 starts. He has looked particularly dominant on the biggest stages and his overall record might look even better if it wasn’t for a back injury suffered the day before The Masters. Johnson is looking to go back-to-back at the US Open after winning this event a year ago and he is worth every dollar in this week’s DraftKings competitions.

Rickie Fowler, $10,500

Fowler has struggled in two of his last three showings but that could make him an underrated play heading in to the US Open. Fowler is still having one of the best seasons of his career and he showed up at The Masters when he tied for 11th. Fowler is still chasing his first major championship win and it won’t be a surprise if he is among the top contenders at the US Open this week.

Adam Hadwin, $7,200

After spending big bucks on D.J. and Fowler, we needed to find some strong value picks to fill out the remainder of our DraftKings lineup. Hadwin has cooled off a bit following his excellent start to the 2017 season but his low price tag and obvious potential are enough to convince us he is a strong sleeper pick for the US Open. Hadwin already has three top-10 finishes to his name this season so lock him in as a strong value play this week.

Francesco Molinari, $7,000

The fact that Molinari is available for just $7K should make him a lock in almost every single DraftKings lineup for this week. Molinari has been absolutely on fire this season as he has finished outside of the top-25 only once in his last nine tournaments. Molinari should be in excellent position to continue his incredible run at the US Open this week and at such a low price he is an obvious pick in this week’s DraftKings competitions.

Ross Fisher, $6,600

Fisher isn’t as obvious of a value play as Molinari, but he has performed well on both the PGA and European Tour this season so he deserves a shot. Fisher has registered three top-10 finishes this season and he has made the cut in six of his last seven events overall. Fisher could be a strong sleeper pick to register another top-25 finish at the US Open.

Graeme McDowell, $6,600

McDowell is another strong sleeper pick that has been very consistent this season as he has finished inside the top-30 in 11 of his 13 starts this season. McDowell might not contend for the outright victory this week but he could hang around with another top-30 finish and that will be just fine. At $6.6K, McDowell is another solid sleeper pick that helps us round out our optimal DraftKings lineup for the US Open. We don’t need him to necessarily win the tournament outright for us (although, that would be really nice). However, a Top 10 or Top 20 finish would help our cause at this price.
