It’s easy to find fantasy picks for the US Open or read about who has the best shot at winning but for fantasy golf purposes you need US Open Sleeper Picks! There is no way to win the big prize without picking some of the low cost players to round out a solid lineup.
The good news is that for a tournament like the US Open the field is stacked with solid golfers since you have to either be pretty good to qualify for the US Open or have had to been a past majors winner or won a tournament this 2017 PGA Tour season.
For my lineups I want to focus on guys who are going to make the cut and be able to score in all 4 rounds. If one of them happens to win the whole thing then that's a huge bonus.
Top Sleeper Picks for the US open
Noren is ranked in the top 10 in the world of golfers and yet most people don’t even know that he exists. He won’t be a high priced player at the top DFS sites so plug him into a bunch of lineups and take advantage of projected low ownership.
I love using Grillo in my lineups because he makes cuts and is always a sub $7000 salary cap player. He won’t win the US Open (although he has the game to do it), but he will leave you room for top tier picks and not hurt your team.
Berger is a guy that flies under the radar, but has played well in both his recent US Open events (28th and 37th place finishes). He will be another low cost guy to look at for your DFS lineups so keep him on your list as he will most likely be around the $7000 to 7500K range.
Byeong Hun An
Of the bunch he's my real longshot pick. He finished in 23rd at the Masters last year and has only one missed cut so far in 2017. Another low cost pick at all daily fantasy golf sites.
Schwartzel was dealing with a wrist injury, but seemed OK while playing at the Memorial Tournament 2 weeks ago. He has been mediocre all year but at a cheap salary he is worth considering as an underdog pick in your lineups.

I loved Furyk going into the 2017 PGA Tour season and he has been a huge disappointment. I can barely justify him being on this list, but his poor play makes him a really low-owned cheap price and in 2016 he finished 2nd at this tournament.
