Contests are going at several daily fantasy sites, starting on Thursday. (Go here for a synopsis of all the contests you can enter.) DraftKings, DraftDay and Victiv are all holding guaranteed prize pool tournaments based on the Masters.

Dustin Johnson, JB Holmes, Louis Oosthuizen and Jimmy Walker are considered good plays nearly across the board. Experts are staying away from big names like Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.

Masters Golf Daily Fantasy Sports:


RotoGrinders’ latest lineup advice is fairly unconventional, with none of the true favorites appearing on the roster. Dustin Johnson is the highest profile player selected here. The others? Patrick Reed,¬†Louis Oosthuizen,¬†JB Holmes,¬†Ryan Moore,¬†Ryan Palmer,¬†Russell Henley, and¬†Morgan Hoffmann.


RotoExperts gives you some options, based on salary cap levels:

A-List: Adam Scott and Bubba Watson (Alternates: Henrik Stenson & Rory McIlroy)

B-List: Jason Day and Paul Casey, or Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth (Alternates: Phil Mickelson, Brandt Snedeker, Lee Westwood and Jimmy Walker)

C-List: Patrick Reed and Branden Grace (Alternates: Miguel Angel Jimenez and Louis Oosthuizen)


DailyRoto doesn’t narrow it down a ton for you, giving you 18 possible plays:

High end: Jason Day, Adam Scott, Dustin Johnson, Henrik Stenson

Second level: Brandt Snedeker, Patrick Reed, Jimmy Walker, Lee Westwood, Hideki Matsuyama

Mid-range: Ian Poulter, Paul Casey, Bill Haas, Miguel Angel Jimenez
