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.

Best DraftKings Values for the Wyndham Championship

Brian Harman $9,400 [My rank sixth, DK salary 10th]
Since winning the John Deere, Harman has made all three of his cuts, led by a T26 at the Open Championship. He missed the cut at Sedgefield in 2010 and 2012 before last year's T3 performance.
Carl Pettersson $9,200 [My rank eighth, DK salary 11th]
Pettersson won at Sedgefield when this tournament first moved to the site in 2008. He struggled the next two seasons and missed last year's cut, but recorded a pair of T4s in 2011 and 2012. Pettersson had two sharp outings in June before taking a slide over his last three starts.
Francesco Molinari $8,800 [My rank 14th, DK salary 16th
Molinari is playing Sedgefield for the first time in his career. He recently finished T15 at the Open Championship prior to a T31 at Firestone and last week's T59 at the PGA.
Chad Campbell $8,000 [My rank 16th, DK salary T22nd]
Campbell finished T4 at Sedgefield in 2012 but missed last year's cut. He was good recently at the Travelers and John Deere, yet missed the cut at the Greenbrier and the Canadian Open in other weak fields.
Bud Cauley $7,900 [My rank 19th, DK salary 24th]
In his last four starts, Cauley missed one cut in addition to his T11 at the Travelers, T4 at the Greenbrier and spoiled top-15 at the John Deere. He finished solo third at Sedgefield in 2012 but missed last year's cut.
David Toms $6,900 [My rank 30th, DK salary T37th]
Toms has played Sedgefield each season since 2008 with four top-25s, highlighted by a runner-up performance back in 2010. He's experienced back trouble in recent weeks, so double check his availability.
My Lineups for the Wyndham Championship (all entered in PGA Quarter Arcade)

Studs and Scrubs
Value Picks
Webb Simpson $10,800
Brian Harman $9,400
Bud Cauley $7,900
Joe Durant $7,500
John Huh $7,500
David Toms $6,900
Brian Harman $9,400
C. Howell III $9,000
F. Molinari $8,800
Chad Campbell $8,000
Bud Cauley $7,900
David Toms $6,900
This field is so bad I don't want to dive any lower than Toms at $6,900. My top-15 players match up closely to where DK has them priced so I'm only going with two groups this week. I have Snedeker ranked first but save $400 with Simpson, my No. 2 player overall.

I had McIlroy in one lineup, avoided Tiger altogether and hit a great value with Stricker. The only player I selected that missed the cut was Bradley. Anything decent out of him over four rounds would have been a huge boost.
