Depending on when youíre reading this, itís been almost 24 hours, or more, since Dustin Johnson edged Jordan Spieth in a riveting final round to win the yearís first FedEx Cup playoff event. You likely watched The Northern Trust on TV, or at least have seen highlights. No need for us to review all the details here, however awesome they were.

Our big takeaway Ė besides Spieth blowing an enormous lead (more on that later) Ė is how the top players year in and year out rise to the top of the playoffs. There are very few outliers since the inception of the playoffs in 2007. Itís something to really focus on when playing DraftKings or one of the other DFS sites for the final three events, beginning Friday at the newly named Dell Technologies Championship outside Boston.
