Daily and weekly fantasy sports have become all the rage. Battling it out over an entire season is fun, but sites like DraftKings offer a quicker payoff and big payouts for winners! Not only do they offer daily action in the four major professional sports (MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL) as well as college basketball and football but also the PGA Tour.

Your DraftKings lineup is made up of six golfers you select from within the $50,000 salary cap. Each week DraftKings offers a wide selection of games to enter at a variety of price points. You can even get a feel for the game in a freeroll contest.

Before you put your cash on the line I'll offer my Top Values and Steals in this space every week, specifically geared to help build a winning DraftKings squad. I'll also give you my Overpriced golfers to avoid.

This Week's Picks

Values

Jonas Blixt $8,800

Coming off a share of second at the Masters. Missed the cut at Quail Hollow last year but recorded a T9 in his 2012 debut.

J.B. Holmes $8,700

Last five starts of the season: T10, T64, T12, T18, T11. Didn't play Quail Hollow last year. T30 after three rounds in 2012, T9 finish in 2011.

Steals

Ben Martin $8,400

Last two weeks: T3 at Harbour Town, T15 at TPC Louisiana. First start at Quail Hollow since missed cut in 2011.

Will MacKenzie $7,700

Two missed cuts the last two weeks but impressive T6, T4, T43, T2 run prior to that. Don't give up yet, certainly not at this price.

Andrew Svoboda $7,600

Missed cut in last year's Quail Hollow debut. T24, T26, T2 in his last three starts of the season.

Overpriced

Zach Johnson $10,100

Fifth-highest salary despite MC and T61 in his last two starts. T65, T69 the last two years at Quail Hollow. T13 after two rounds last year before terrible weekend rounds.

Bill Haas $9,400

First start since leaving Harbour Town with a wrist injury. Missed the cut the last two years at Quail Hollow.

Seung-yul Noh $8,800

J.B. Holmes $8,700

Ben Martin $8,400

Will MacKenzie $7,700

Andrew Svoboda $7,600

I'm invested in Blixt and Holmes across the board as they are each strong values. The backend of these lineups are dicey, leaning on players that have been playing hot lately but most are lacking in experience and/or past success at Quail Hollow.

The Value Picks finished inside the money while the other two groups fizzled; although I hit a great value with Hearn in all three. The Studs and Scrubs would have fared very well had Fowler and Every played to expectations.
