One week break, and we are back to week-in, week-out PGA Tour Content here at SGPN. We head to Jackson, Mississippi, for the Sanderson Farms Championship to kick off week two of the 2023 PGA Tour Fall Swing. This golf course provides little resistance anywhere and will boil down to the golfers who can make the most ten-foot putts. We like to call that a bonafide birdie best. Nonetheless, there will be a winner and an optimal lineup, so let’s get to these Sanderson Farms Championship DFS plays!
2023 Sanderson Farms Championship DFS: Best Plays in Each Price Range
$9K And Above
Stephan Jaeger $10,400
Jaeger has been a model of consistency for nearly the last calendar year. Although the solid play has shown, he has yet to really burst onto the scene and take advantage of a weak field. Jaeger missed three cuts all of last season and showed his ability to gain multiple strokes in the ball striking categories.
The putter is always a question mark, but he has gained three-plus strokes on the greens three times on this golf course. I was extremely shocked to find out that Jaeger has six starts at this event because it feels like he has been a PGA Tour player staple for a short amount of time. Expect Jaeger to be in the winning lineup, even at 10.4k.
Keith Mitchell $9,900
PGA Tour winner Keith Mitchell is one of the more proven golfers in this field. He will get the job done with his off-the-tee game and hopefully be able to hit his wedges close. Mitchell is one of the players who spikes off the tee and on the greens and has some issues hitting his irons. Jackson Country Club takes a lot of middle irons out of the bag and will lend itself to wedges or long clubs into par 5s. Look for Keith to show up this fall swing.
Classic style. Serious game.

Sam Stevens $7,700
I am hoping Sam Stevens goes under the radar this week because he is a golfer who will break out this year. Stevens popped up on a few leaderboards last season, and the PGA Tour die-hards started to see what his game was made of. Stevens’ showed the ability to gain five-plus strokes on approach, which is a recipe for success on any golf course. He may be the next Oklahoma State Gold Alumni to turn heads on the PGA Tour.
Chad Ramey $7,200
This Mississippi State alumnus does his best work on easy golf courses. Chad Ramey is a play at 7.2k this week. His few top-ten finishes in his golf career came on some of the easiest courses we see all year, and that is what we will have this week. Ramey has already won on the PGA Tour, which shows his ceiling is legit. I am not necessarily saying look out for a Chad Ramey breakout year, but I do believe he has decent finishing position equity for his price point and will take a leap this season.
The first player to double digits under par.

Will Gordon $6,900
Will Gordon is a golfer I am buying stock in again this season. His talent is through the roof, and it is only a matter of time before he puts it all together. When you think about the best modern-day golfers, they all are the best drivers in the world. Will Gordon ranked ninth in total driving last PGA Tour Season, which shows a lot. Look for Willy G to dial up the big stick and hit some wedges close.
