The new darling of the daily fantasy community, Sung-jae Im has been a great addition to nearly any DFS lineup this year.

According to every tour pro who has played with him, Im’s game is solid from tee to green. If he has a weakness, it might be his schedule. At Bethpage, Im will be playing for the fifth straight week, giving him more events in a row than almost any other player in the field.

It is difficult to stay mentally sharp for that many consecutive weeks, especially when the tail end of that stretch is a major championship at Bethpage Black. While his game is good enough to have a strong showing this week, I’m not convinced he will be as sharp as he usually is.

For that reason, I am staying away from him this week and will explore other options in his price range for DFS.
