Bryson DeChambeau – with protein shakes in tow – is officially a major champion. In a dominating performance, DeChambeau took down Winged Foot and landed in the winner’s circle at last week’s US Open. While the rest of the stars of the game lick their wounds, the 2020-21 PGA TOUR season heads to the Dominican Republic for the 2020 Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship. That means it’s time for my list of PGA DFS Corales Puntacana Sleepers at The Wife Hates Sports.
Obviously, the term “SLEEPER” can be interpreted in a number of different ways. In this case, it’s the lower cost players that stand out in key statistical areas, specifically the 6K range on DraftKings.
In this case, the 6K range can pull out some unique names with low ownership that can allow you to afford some of the more expensive players.
Considering there are few stars in this field, the list of PGA DFS Corales Puntacana sleepers is taking on a bit of a different meaning. Okay, so few stars is being kind, considering some of the most notable names in the OWGR include Mackenzie Hughes (#54) and Adam Long (#69).
Despite the lack of big names, it still could be a situation where you want to roster names like Korn Ferry star Will Zalatoris, who notched a top ten last week and owns the largest price tag on DraftKings.
So, this is no time for fore-play at The Wife Hates Sports, but instead the time to focus on a list of PGA DFS Corales Puntacana sleepers. A top ten and some lineup flexibility is a definitely possibility.
I ran a few models on Fantasy National that featured my favorite stats (all covering the last 36 rounds for players in the field). Here are my top 6K range sleepers on DraftKings this week:
PGA DFS Corales Puntacana Sleepers: Top 6K Range Picks on DraftKings
Grayson Murray ($6,400)
Corales is a longer course that is a Par 72, which means we do get four Par 5’s. For starters, Grayson Murray is 10th in the field in strokes gained on Par 5’s. He’s also 4th in Birdies or Better Gained and third in Driving Distance, meaning he should be able to tame this rather lengthy course. Top top it off, Murray finished T12 at this tournament last year.
Graham DeLaet ($6,300)
DeLaet has only played in a handful of tournaments since his second back surgery. That is likely a risk, with lack of data and potential for injury. I added him here a few weeks ago and he pops on my model again, landing in 12th position. He’s 9th in the field in strokes gained ball striking and 2nd in Proximity. He’s also 20th in total strokes gained in windier conditions. This course hugs the coast so we could see some windier conditions throughout the tournament.
Brandon Hagy ($6,900)
Where he lacks in consistent ball striking (81st in the field over the last 36 rounds), Hagy is 5th in Birdies or Better Gained and 2nd in Driving Distance. He also cracks the top twenty in Scrambling Gained, so on holes when he’s not bombing and putting himself in solid birdie position, he gets out of trouble.
Ryan Brehm ($6,800)
He lands 15th overall in my model, but sits high in a number of key categories. Specifically, Brehm is 20th in SG: Ball Striking, 12th in Birdies or Better Gained and 1st in Driving Distance. His numbers are a bit lower when it comes to Scrambling and total strokes gained in windier conditions. Again, the windy conditions can also depend on the course and situation, so take it with a grain of salt.
