The Outlook

While Dufner secured a fifth-place finish at The Players, he hasn’t done much outside of that. His recent form is very worrisome, as he’s either missed the cut or finished 42nd or worse in seven of his past eight tournaments. I think you could safely avoid Dufner in DFS and in the betting markets without the fear of missing out.
