Travelers Championship daily fantasy golf picks, sleepers, fades, strategy

first_imgAfter one of the most popular weeks for PGA DFS contests, the Travelers Championship provides an excellent opportunity to target elite golfers who underperformed at the U.S. Open. This week’s GPPs will collect spillover entries from less experienced daily fantasy golf players that started or just resumed playing during last week’s major.Recency bias has a stronger impact on newer players. The optimal way to leverage this is by targeting premier golfers who flopped and burnt those who bought in on them at the U.S. Open, as the best long-term players are always the likeliest to bounce back with the most authority.  Continuing to make his way back from a wrist injury, Justin Thomas missed the cut last week. Thomas was a popular option as one of the lower-priced elite golfers at the U.S. Open, but he ended up burning lineups that included him. Since his return, Thomas has missed two of three cuts. I expect this to scare off DFS players who may sense that something could still be wrong with his wrist. Instead of guessing about the status of his injury, however, I would rather leverage his low ownership. Thomas is one of the premier golfers on tour, and the bad recent results may simply be explained by him knocking off some rust. As far as I am concerned, Thomas will be fully himself this week, and I expect him to be less coveted than similarly priced golfers like Jason Day and Paul Casey. On top of low ownership, Thomas is being discounted due to the recent missed cuts. Leverage the recent injury and last week’s missed cut for a double discount on both ownership and price.Tony Finau has endured a very uncharacteristic slump recently with missed cuts in his past two tournaments and fishes of T60th or worse in three of the five tournaments before that. I might be more concerned if not for a solo second-play finish at the Charles Schwab Challenge and a T5th at the Masters smack dab in the middle of the bad results. Finau is most likely just fine and has proven incredibly consistent outside of this minislump. His price has been heavily discounted, and yet I expect him to receive much lower ownership than he normally does this week. While many expect TPC River Highlands to favor shorter hitters, which certainly doesn’t describe Finau, he has never finished worse than 25th at this event. In fact, Bubba Watson, another golfer who is generally thought of more for his distance than finesse, has won here twice. With many DFS players recently having soured on Finau and looking to pay up for several studs above his price level, he may fly completely under the radar. Rarely do you get the opportunity to roster such an electrifying golfer at such low ownership.Aaron White graduated from Northwestern University with a B.A. in Economics.

It seemed Spieth was finally turning his season around with three straight top-10 finishes coming into the U.S. Open, but he couldn’t keep his momentum and certainly didn’t help out anybody who rostered him at a premium. What Spieth continues to possess, though, despite his struggles over the past two seasons, is a level of talent that is arguably unmatched. The recent top-10 finishes show that regardless of last week’s disappointment, Spieth is finding his stride once again. I expect Spieth to be far overlooked compared to the likes of other top options Brooks Koepka and Patrick Cantlay, which may be a mistake. Spieth is of similar caliber and priced cheaper, and what you sacrifice in form I believe you more than make up for in leverage. It doesn’t hurt that Spieth won here in 2017 either. Buy in before Spieth finally gets all aspects of his game clicking.last_img read more

Fans welcomed Representatives of BiH at the Airport Tuzla (Video)

first_imgRepresentatives of BiH in the sitting volleyball, who won the second place at the World Cup in the Netherlands on Sunday, landed at the International Airport Tuzla yesterday where they were welcomed by many fans.Silver medal winners were welcomed by many citizens at the Airport Tuzla who did not hide their satisfaction with the success achieved by our silver boys.“This was maybe even the most difficult finals for us, but I still think that we achieved a great success. We knew that a difficult path is ahead of us because we had certain problems even before,” said Sabahudin Delalic, who used this opportunity and thanked everyone who welcomed them at the International Airport of Tuzla.The wish of BH representatives when they departed to the Netherlands was the placement in the finals of the competition and the Paralympic Games.“We were secretly hoping to stay on the top and win against Iran, but we did not succeed. Unfortunately, or luckily, we had the most difficult path to finals this time. It was very difficult from the psychological aspect as well, but we managed to make a good result. Although it is not a gold medal, I believe that it is the most valuable one so far,” said representative Ermin Jusufovic.To recall, our representatives were defeated by the team of Iran on Sunday with the score 3: 0 in sets, whole BH volleyball players won against the selection of Iraq, Egypt and Poland in the group stage of the competition at this year’s World Cup.Our team won against Russia in the quarter-finals with the score 3: 1, and the same result was recorded in the semi-final match against the team of Brazil.Unfortunately, our national team did not manage to defend the title of the world champions they achieved four years ago in Poland. Besides 2014, our national team was the best in the world in 2002 and 2006.Take a look at the video:(Source: A. K./Klix.ba)last_img read more
