The Masters Report Card is written with the goal of assigning letter grades to each player based on their projected odds at various levels and their salaries on DraftKings. The grades are overall were created to serve as a guide to each and every golfer available for this week’s PGA Contests on DraftKings. Take a look through and feel free to argue any of the grades with @EthanHaskellDFS on Twitter.
Play of the Group: Jimmy Walker – Based on sheer salary alone, his price really stands out compared to his A+ dollar per point grade. The remainder of the golfers in this category are all $10K or higher, while he sits at just $8900.
Head of the Class
Play of the Group: J.B. Holmes – Much like Walker in the first grouping, Holmes price jumps out at you a bit here. After winning the Shell Houston Open last week Holmes is quickly rising in popularity among oddsmakers for the Masters.
Fade of the Group: Tiger Woods – I know that he might be the most popular golfer on the planet but if we’re being realistic he’s a shell of what he once was. He seems over-priced looking at his salary alone and his odds to make the cut are really poor for a guy of his caliber.
Just Above Average
Play of the Group: Ryan Palmer – The theme of these plays in each group is price and Palmer seems like he’s in a pretty good spot here with that $6600 price tag. That should alleviate some of the salary cap pressures and allow you to go after studs like Rory and Bubba for the Masters.
Definition of Average
Play of the Group: Jamie Donaldson – If we’re being totally honest, I had never heard of Jamie Donaldson until today but the odds are pretty solid on him making the cut and in this price range you want a guy who can be racking up fantasy points over the course of all four days for you.
Just Below Average
Fade of the Group: Martin Kaymer – When you’re $1200 more than the next most expensive player in your grouping, you can start to see the red flags mounting up. Kaymer has struggled at Augusta and his report card is not pretty heading into the Masters.
