This article is designed to help you win at the Weekly Golf game at DraftKings.

By now you've heard all the craze about DraftKings right? Daily Fantasy Sports is exploding and we had a blast with Football this year here at Toolbox, but did you know that you can now enjoy rooting for your favorite golfers like never before? The gatherings at the water cooler has never been more fun! It's time for me (and you) to take the plunge into Daily Fantasy Golf! Let's do it together this year.

The concept is simple. Each golfer is assigned a Salary and you have to pick a 6 man squad under a salary cap.

The slick website does all the math for you so if you pick a team that is over the cap, it will alert you so you can remove the player and add in a cheaper option.

Let's get right to it, my TOP VALUES, STEALS and OVERPRICED golfers are below.

Top Value Plays

Webb Simpson $10,100

Last year's T6 finish was Simpson's first trip to Riviera since placing T15 back in 2010. Simpson has made five starts this season and has finished no worse than 23rd so far. He's coming off a solo 10th at TPC Scottsdale.

Bill Haas $9,500

Haas has been uneven lately but very stout over the three years at Riviera: T3 '12, Winner '12, T12 '12.

Absolute STEALS

K.J. Choi $8,200

Choi hasn't missed the cut at Riviera in any of his 13 career starts with three top-seven finishes since 2008. He hasn't placed outside of the top 35 since 2004.

J.B. Holmes $6,700

Holmes is still looking to regain his form following a series of medical issues but worth the risk at this price thanks to steallar Riviera record from 2008-12: T7, T6, T3, T12, T8. Missed the cut last year, however.

Joost Luiten $4,400

Luiten is playing Riviera for the first time but the 28-year-old Dutchman is crimiarly underpriced; tied for fourth-cheapest in the entire game! Dating back to last year he's finished inside the top 25 in six straight events.

Way Too Overpriced

Charles Howell III $10,100

CH3 won at Riviera back in 2007 but has missed the cut three of the last four years and hasn't recorded a top-50 since.

Brendon Todd $9,700

Todd started the season with a T20 and T6 but has placed outside of the top 35 in his last two appearances. His lone apperance at Riviera was missed cut from 2012.

My Team ($50,000 budget)

Dustin Johnson $10,500
Webb Simpson $10,100
Bill Haas $9,500
Jim Furyk $8,700
J.B. Holmes $6,700
Joost Luiten $4,400
Remaining salary: $100.00
