4 months agoRussell Henley checks into the Travelers Championship this week in Cromwell, Connecticut looking to repeat his strong performance from a season ago. He placed sixth at TPC River Highlands in 2018, and he was 11th in 2016 in his most recent showing at the event before that. A combination of good work in the Driving Accuracy Percentage (18th), Greens In Regulation (47th) and Par 4 Scoring Average (40th) categories will propel him to another good finish. Only his poor work on the greens, ranking 165th in Putts Per Round (29.35), can subvert him this weekend.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: PGATOUR.com

4 months agoKeegan Bradley limps into the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut looking to piece together a handful of strong showings. He has made the cut in just three of the past seven single-player tournaments. However, his good work in the Greens In Regulation (65.56 percent) category should serve him well this week, while he also shows well in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green. Whether he is successful or not this weekend might come down to his work on the greens. So far he has been a disaster with the putter, ranking 182nd in Tour in Putts Per Round (29.53).--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: PGATOUR.com

4 months agoVeteran Brandt Snedeker looks to get back on track at the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands this week. He is looking to rebound after a tumbling down the leaderboard with a final-round 6-over 77 at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in the 119th U.S. Open Championship. While he missed the cut last season at this event, he has made the cut in four of the past five showings at TPC River Highlands, including three finishes of 14th or better. The even-keel Snedeker is a solid bet to rebound for DFS players.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: PGATOUR.com

4 months agoAbraham Ancer rolls into the Travelers Championship this week in Cromwell, Connecticut looking to make the cut for a sixth consecutive time in a single-player event since he missed the cut at the RBC Heritage in mid-April. He has just one previous showing in this event, missing the cut last season despite an opening-round 67. Ancer might be a nice sleeper based on his work in the Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee category, as he ranks 18th in that key area. He is also 19th in Par 4 Scoring Average (3.99), another category of focus for DFS players. Look for Ancer to avenge last season's missed cut at TPC River Highlands and post a strong weekend performance.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: PGATOUR.com

4 months agoJoel Dahmen arrives at the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands this week looking to bounce back after missing the cut last week at Pebble Beach Golf Links in the 119th U.S. Open Championship. It's been a tough go of it since he was a runner-up at the Wells Fargo Championship in early May, finishing 68th or worse in the two out of four events he made the cut. He has two career appearances at TPC River Highlands under his belt, missing the cut last season, while finishing just 62nd in 2017. He is just too risky from a fantasy perspective based on his tournament history, and his recent run of bad play.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: PGATOUR.com

4 months agoPatrick Cantlay is in the field for the upcoming Travelers Championship. Cantlay has had a tremendous summer with a recent win at the Memorial and multiple top-ten finishes. He makes the trip to Connecticut on the heels of a slightly underwhelming T21 at last week's U.S. Open. The 27-year-old is one of golf's premier tee-to-green players and currently stands third on the PGA Tour in total strokes gained. He logged a T15 in his 2018 Travelers start. DFS players will find it tough to squeeze Cantlay into their lineups this week, as his hefty DraftKings price tag trails only Brooks Koepka. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

4 months agoTony Finau is scheduled to tee it up at the Travelers Championship. Finau will attempt to rebound from a disappointing missed cut at last week's U.S. Open. The long knocker hasn't yet matched his success of 2018 this season, but he has recorded top-25 finishes in all three of his previous Travelers starts. Finau has lost strokes with his irons in his last two outings, but will need to sharpen up that area of his game at a tight TPC River Highlands layout. He's a 'boom or bust' DFS option in his current form. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

4 months agoOklahoma State star Viktor Hovland is set to make his professional debut at this week's Travelers Championship. Hovland is fresh off breaking the 72-hole amateur scoring record at last week's U.S. Open. The rising star finished at four-under par at Pebble Beach, good for a share of 12th place. The Norwegian displayed the tools that should make him a star on the PGA Tour, as he finished inside the top three in strokes gained: off the tee, tee to green, and greens in regulation last week. Hovland has long been considered golf's 'next big thing' and he heads to a TPC River Highlands course that yields plenty of birdies. He's an enticing DFS option this week and is a player to keep an eye on in the future. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

4 months agoPaul Casey is in the field for the upcoming Travelers Championship. Casey heads to Connecticut on the heels of a solid T21 outing at last week's U.S. Open. The Englishman has a strong history at TPC River Highlands, with two runner-up finishes and a T5 in four Travelers appearances since 2015. He grades out second in this week's field in strokes gained: ball striking over his last 24 rounds. Casey is an elite DFS option at his sub-$10k price tag on DraftKings and deserves consideration in OAD formats as well. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

4 months agoMarc Leishman is in the field for this week's Travelers Championship. Leishman heads to Connecticut on the heels of solid performances in his last two starts - a T35 at the U.S. Open and a T5 at the Memorial. The Aussie's recent success can be attributed to his rediscovered putting stroke. After fighting the flat stick for the better part of three months, Leishman has gained strokes putting in his last two starts. He has a solid track record at the Travelers, but did miss the cut in last season's appearance. Leishman's trending form on the greens makes him a solid DFS option this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

4 months agoBubba Watson is set to defend his 2018 Travelers title in Connecticut this week. Watson is a three-time champion of the Travelers and will look to add a fourth piece of hardware to his TPC River Highlands collection. The mercurial lefty will attempt to rebound from a missed cut in last week's U.S. Open, but he has shown a propensity to play well on specific courses no matter his recent form. Watson is one of golf's last true shotmakers and should once again flourish on this tricky Pete Dye layout. He's an intriguing DFS option with huge upside. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

4 months agoBrooks Koepka is scheduled to tee it up in this week's Travelers Championship. Koepka heads to Connecticut after falling short of his third-straight U.S. Open championship win at Pebble Beach. The 'Big Game Hunter' logged a runner-up finish in California and now must travel across the country for the Travelers. He has played well in his previous visits to TPC River Highlands, but it's fair to wonder what he has left in the tank this week. Koepka sits atop DFS salary scales for the Travelers and always carries tournament-winning upside. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

4 months agoThe first round of the 2019 U.S. Open proved to be a grind for the man that made Pebble Beach look easy in 2000. Tiger Woods shot an opening-round 70 Thursday, but it was apparent that his game wasn't fully clicking. The 15-time major winner overcame a double-bogey on the fifth hole to shoot one-under par on the front nine. He then played the back nine in even par to finish at one under for the round and five shots behind the leader Justin Rose. Tiger's iron play will need to be much sharper if he hopes to grab his 16th major championship this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
4 months agoJustin Rose might have headed to this week's U.S. Open flying under the radar, but the Englishman grabbed everyone's attention Thursday. Rose tied the U.S. Open record of lowest round at Pebble Beach with an opening-round 65. The outing put him at six-under par, one shot clear of a group of four players at five-under par. Rose needed just 22 putts to get around the classic layout and birdied his final three holes of the day. He is lightly owned in most fantasy formats and will reward those that rostered him if he continues putting the lights out. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
4 months agoShane Lowry is set to play in the 2019 U.S. Open. Lowry heads to Pebble Beach Golf Links in red-hot form. The Irishman logged a runner-up finish in last week's RBC Canadian Open. It was the third consecutive top-10 outing for Lowry. He has a Euro Tour win to his credit earlier this season and should feel comfortable on the links-style Pebble Beach layout. Lowry's current form and projected course fit will make him a popular fantasy option in all formats. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
