PGA DFS DraftKings Tournament picks for the 2021 Genesis Invitational taking place February 18th thru 21st at the Riviera Golf Course in Los Angeles, California
Welcome or welcome back, I’m at it again with more DFS DraftKings picks for the PGA 2021 Genesis Invitational. For anyone new, I’m no expert, I’m not even a writer. But I enjoy doing these and I’ve had a pretty good start to my year. Feel free to look back at all my columns/picks in our fantasy sports section.
If anyone out there would like to join me for a column or even a podcast, let me know in the comments or on Twitter at JaySox420.
Last year’s Genesis Invitational winner was Adam Scott (his 2nd time winning here) while J.B Holmes won this tournament in 2019. Bubba Watson won it for the 3rd time in 2018 and Dustin Johnson in 2017. And a bunch of others won before that.
PGA 2021 Genesis Invitational DFS DraftKings Top Picks
Bryson DeChambeau (DK $10,100)
Dustin Johnson is a big favorite this week and rightfully so, he’s been amazing. But he’s the most expensive player, will likely be the most owned and WD last week. Which could’ve been nothing, but who knows. So I’m going to dodge that and save $1200 with Bryson. He’s made all 5 cuts this season with 3 top 10’s including a win at the U.S Open. He finished T15 here in 2019 and T5 last year.
Adam Scott ($9,000)
Scott hasn’t missed a cut this season and picked up his first top 10 in his last event, the Farmers Insurance Open. He won this event last year (also in 2005), he’s also placed 2nd twice and has finished in the top 11 in four out of his last five trips.
PGA 2021 Genesis Invitational DraftKings Value Picks
Brendan Steele ($7,100)
Steele hasn’t missed a cut (4/4) in 2021, including a 4th place finish at the Sony Open. He’s also made the cut at this event in 7 out of his last 8 trips.
Michael Thompson ($6,700)
Thompson has made 8 out of his last 9 cuts, including 4 top 25’s. He finished T7 here in 2019.
Peter Malnati ($6,600)
Malnati has played 4 events in 2021. He finished 14th at Sony, MC at American Express, 10th at Farmers and another MC at Pebble Beach. If he keeps that trend going, this should be a great week. He doesn’t have good history here, but he’s made 2 of his last 4 cuts, so that’s something.
That’s it for now, good luck out there and see on the next edition of…
