2022 American Express – DraftKings PGA DFS Daily Cheat Sheet & Overview – FantasyCruncher.com DFS Articles & Insights
This week, players are heading to American Express 2022, which is a tournament that will see players play on three different courses before a cut that occurs after Saturday’s round. Two of the four rounds for each golfer making the cut will be at the Stadium Course, which registers as a Par 72 at just over 2,100 yards. Historically players have fallen low here and it’s one of the easiest courses on the tour – and with only one lap after the cut – I wouldn’t say a 6/6 is absolutely necessary to cash in – so you can get a bit more risk-aggressive when building queues, even if you’re fairly risk-averse.
You’ll want to focus on players who can score and hit the ball here as neither course is particularly long – so I’m going to focus on a combination of SG:APP, SG:TTG, recent form and play history. course regarding narrowing the field. Let’s dive in and take a look at some options I really like this week, then finish with the American Express 2022 cheat sheet, which you’ll see below!
Best of the Best (considering salary)
Finau is an elite ball striker, and while he doesn’t come cheap, he doesn’t break the bank either. He had a pretty decent showing at the Sony Open, finishing in 19th place, and I really liked what I saw of his game over the weekend, finishing with a 65 on Sunday. He’s used to racking up goals and I like his chances of being in the thick of the action in the standings when Sunday rolls around. It’s a great option this week.
List comes into this one playing exceptionally well, with three top 11s in his last four events. It entered No. 28 in the FedEx Cup rankings this year and at an affordable price this week – it’s a great mid-priced option. He was an awful putter, but ranks 1st on the circuit in SG:TTG – and won shots left right and center…until he got to the green. I like his ball hitting to keep going, and if he can be a little half decent on the green, I like his chances of a fight this week. A big bet to take here to list it for a significant number of lineups in my books with the only downside being the fact that it’s probably going to be a popular choice.
He really struggled out of the gates in the 2021-22 season – and his all-season stats still reflect that… with him losing shots in all facets of the game to the pitch. Before the holidays, however, he had twice finished in the top 5, and last year he was above average in ball-striking. In a weak ground event, I think he’s one of the best options in his price range (if not the best), and I think his poor 2021-22 metrics will keep him lower than I think he will. should be for this one. Don’t expect low ownership levels, but I like it more than its popularity, which puts it in an attractive position as a value play this week/weekend.

Our cheat sheets highlight the core games (including some contrarian candidates) that we like the slate the most and, therefore, would recommend a higher level of exposure overall. This is not an exhaustive list, and if you are a multi-entry GPP player, you may decide to eventually have a larger pool of players to work from. Our hope is that this gives you a core group of players to boost your exposure.
Good luck in your competitions this week and throughout the 2022 PGA season!!
