The tour rolls along on the California cost with one of the most popular courses in the rotation, Torrey Pines. The field is stacked with 4 top ten players including Rickie Fowler, Hideki Matsuyama, Justin Rose and Jon Rahm. Oh and did we mention that the field doesn't matter because Tiger Woods is teeing it up for the 2018 Farmers Insurance Open. Yes, all eyeballs will be on Tiger this weekend and it's the perfect storm for a monster ratings boost for the PGA considering it's the dull period with no NFL this weekend until the big game.

Top Tier DFS Fantasy Picks
He's coming off a cut at the CareerBuilder Challenge but I don't mind and in fact that may be enough to get some ownership away from him. He's played the Farmers Insurance Open 11 times and has 7 Top Tens and 9 cuts made. He finished 9th last year and won it in 2016, Snedeker is my top tier pick across all sites.
I'm trying to find ways to get away from Rahm seeing as I expect him to be the highest owned player. I just can't however, he won last week and won this tournament last year. He's got the distance and his putting game is on fire right now. If you are doing multiple lineups I'd fade him in a couple and hope for a bust but he's a cash game must.
Best Value Pick For DFS
Finished 2017 off an a terrible run missing 6 straight cuts. He seems to have found his game again in 2018 having made the cut in the Sony Open and finishing 11th last week. He's played Torrey Pines 5 times and has an average finish of 37th but finished 14th last year. He can bomb it with the best of them and Eagle putts can come in bunches for him.
Course History Pick
Charles Howell III
There is a few players you could go with here including the man himself Tiger Woods. I'm not risking it with him but I will have Charles Howell in many lineups. He loves this tournament, has played 15 times and has made the cut 100% of the time. Throw in 7 Top Tens, a 2nd place finish last year and he is an easy course history pick for me.
Sleeper Pick for The Farmers Insurance
He's great value at Draftkings compared to Fanduel at $7100. He's not great at any one thing but he's a good combination of Driving Distance, Accuracy and GIR. He's made the cut 8 out of 13 times at Torrey Pines with 3 Top Ten's. I don't love him but as a sleeper pick he can easily crack the Top 25.
