AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am 2022 – DraftKings PGA DFS Daily Cheat Sheet & Overview – FantasyCruncher.com DFS Articles & Insights
This week, players head to Pebble Beach to compete in the 2022 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. On short course, I will focus on golfers who can throw darts with their approach games as well as those who can scramble tracks – albeit in the same breath – I won’t penalize long-ball hitters here either. Ball-striking and recent form will be the two criteria I’ll be paying the most attention to as we head into this weekend’s tournament.
As for the peloton, it’s not the strongest. Daniel Berger and Patrick Cantlay respectively lead the pack – and both are outstanding plays. I’ll spare you an article on one or both below and focus on other options you can use to complement one or move away from them.
Let’s dive in and look at three options that I think are definitely worth including in your player pool – before creating a more comprehensive list on the weekly cheat sheet!
Best of the Best (considering salary)
Palmer is one of the best options in the field this week, and while I don’t expect him to be weak, I think he will check fewer rosters than I think. He’s remarkably consistent, has a high floor, and is an excellent ball striker – registering in 7th place on tour in SG:TTG. While a good chunk of it is off the tee, it’s still well above average in SG:APP and is better than average in SG:ATG. If he can make a decent putt this week, I like his chances of being in the mix at the top of the leaderboard this week.
An elite putter, McCarthy is someone I like to use in tournaments where the course isn’t long. With Pebble Beach checking in under 7,000 yards and McCarthy playing great with 3 top 11s in his last 4 events, he’s a pretty brag-friendly guy for me this week. He and Mac Hughes are on my list of guys I like when they play well, and his average SG:OTT and SG:APP help keep his ownership levels in check. He is ranked 17th on tour in SG: ATG and 18th in putting (which is improving rapidly week by week).
There’s not much sample size here on the season – but his game was on point at the Sony Open, and if you’re looking for a punt with an edge here for under $7,000 – he’s worth it. to be mixed with versions. He was elite in SG:APP and SG:TTG at Sony, and in a low ground event I think he has a reasonable chance of hitting value at his price point this week. There is of course risk here – there usually is when you have such a low salary – but I like the potential risk/reward for him as a game this week.

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!!
