Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth have been popular PGA DFS picks for years, but daily Fantasy golf players will have to decide if they can be trusted when they set their PGA DFS strategy for the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship, which gets underway from Quail Hollow on Thursday, May 2. McIlroy, who's the highest priced player on both DraftKings and FanDuel, has won this event three times in his career, most recently in 2021. Spieth, whose PGA DFS price is $9,600 on DraftKings and $11,600 on FanDuel, has finished T-4 or better in three of his last four starts on the PGA Tour.
Can those household names be relied on as PGA DFS picks this week? Or is it time to fade them in favor of players with a significantly lower price tag?

Top 2023 Wells Fargo Championship PGA DFS picks
One of McClure's top PGA DFS picks for the Wells Fargo Championship 2023 is Cameron Young at $8,700 on DraftKings and $10,900 on FanDuel.
In order to score well at Quail Hollow, players will need to consistently put themselves in advantageous positions off the tee and few do it better than Young. In fact, the 25-year-old is currently ranked third in driving distance (316.5), 12th in strokes gained: off the tee (.617) and 16th in total driving (117). He's also extremely accurate with his irons, ranking 18th in strokes gained: approach to green (.658). Plus, he's finished T-7 or better in two of his last three starts on the PGA Tour, consistently providing value for those who roster him in their PGA DFS lineups.
McClure's optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Justin Thomas at $8,900 on DraftKings and $11,300 on FanDuel. Thomas has had success at Quail Hollow in his career, winning the PGA Championship in 2017 for his first major title.
The 30-year-old is now a seasoned winner on the PGA Tour, securing a total of 15 victories and two major championships. He also enters this week's event ranked first in strokes gained: around-the-green (.583), 18th in birdie average (4.26) and 21st in one-putt percentage (43.27%), making him a solid building block for your PGA DFS strategy.
