This week, the PGA Tour presents the FanDuel/DFS community with the Safeway Open! Let’s take a look at this event from a fantasy golf perspective.
Before I discuss my FanDuel player selections I wanted to clearly state that the purpose of this article is not to provide a specific lineup. Having stated that, this article will provide multiple player options in an effort to assist the reader in generating a unique lineup that will hopefully have the potential to win a FanDuel GPP (guaranteed prize pool) contest!
Here are my FanDuel player selections for the Safeway Open!
Harold Varner III $10,500
The American has two top 29 finishes in his last three events on the PGA Tour, including a seventh place result at the Wyndham Championship last month.
