Emerson Lotzia:

We have a millionaire contest available for golf’s third major. So it’s nearly $3 million dollars in total prizes—that’s more than the actual winner here of this event—$1 million to first place, it’s just $15 to enter, so check it out.

Geoff, is there anyone else whose salary stands out to you as some good value?

Geoff Ulrich:

It’s a major championship week, so obviously for DFS, we know what we’re getting at this point. It’s a deep field, you’re just going to get guys down the salary chart where you’re like, “usually this guy is $10K, what’s going on here?” To me, the biggest value out there—it’s Sam Burns at $8300. This guy is just so, so cheap, and he’s sandwiched between Fitzpatrick and Finau, who, if Burns wasn’t in that range, we’d probably be talking about them, but Burns is better than these guys. He’s just better than Finau and Fitzpatrick, because he can actually compete. He wins—yeah, like a T8 with Fitzpatrick and Finau, those are great, but Sam Burns can get you a win at $8300. That’s how good he’s playing. He just beat Scottie Scheffler, the hottest player in golf, a couple of weeks ago.

So for me, Sam Burns at $8300—I talked about liking Cantlay at $9200, but the fact you can get Burns at $900 less than Cantlay this week, that is just ridiculous. So that’s a player you’re really going to have to make a stance on this week. That is chalk I really wouldn’t mind eating, because I just feel like the upside with Burns is so immense. He, to me, is the biggest value this week on the board.

Pick: Sam Burns ($8,300)
