I might be breaking down among the darkish horses for The American Express. A darkish horse is what I might take into account as anybody $7,500 or under on DraftKings. These guys are ones that the sportsbooks and DraftKings price down as a result of they have a tendency to often have a small likelihood of profitable, however I consider the blokes listed might make a run.
Darkish Horse No 1
Joel Dahmen ($7,500) – Joel is somebody that I might take into account a darkish horse as a result of he’s a minimize maker. You understand you’ll be able to often get a full 4 days of scoring from him. He doesn’t often contend, however he can sneak his means into the highest 20. Eight of his final 12 rounds have been within the 60’s which is optimistic with one being a low 61 within the second spherical of the RSM Basic. His final three begins in DK scoring had been 95.5, 72 and 105.5.
Darkish Horse Quantity 2
Andrew Landry ($7,000) – I discussed him in one other article I wrote, however he has some superb course historical past right here. He generally is a darkish horse as a result of he had a win final 12 months and a runner-up in 2018 when he confronted Jon Rahm in a playoff. Cancel out final match (as a result of everybody can have a tough week) and he would appear like he’s in some good type. This man can clearly contend right here and I might not thoughts seeing it once more this 12 months as DraftKings is underestimating the match defender.
Darkish Horse Quantity 3
Jim Herman ($6,700) – Herman is likely one of the darkish horses as a result of he simply performed his first match since November 19th, however performed glorious for his requirements. He had a gap spherical of 64, than adopted with 69-69-66 for a 32nd place end. At his low cost price, that’s nice on your lineup with 93.5 DraftKings points. His final begin right here was in 2019 with a missed minimize, however I’m wanting ahead to a possible flip round.
Darkish horses are nice to take a look at when setting lineups due to possession leverage. When you discover that proper one which finally ends up contending, you might be in for an incredible week. Most DFS gamers will often preserve the identical guys on the prime of their lineups and than use a variation of the cheaper gamers. This might imply that you just get a man like Jim Herman who will get scorching one week with a prime 10 end and solely 5% owned, due to this fact differentiating your lineup. This might assist you cash out and win large.
That’s the danger although too. At an inexpensive price like his for instance might make him be one to overlook the minimize. However that’s the danger and these guys are “dart” performs, that means ones who we take a shot at and see in the event that they hit. Excessive danger, excessive reward.
