2 years agoMarc Leishman, currently ranked 14th in the official World Golf rankings, struggled in his last PGA Tour event at the Genesis Open, failing to make the cut into the weekend. However, he’s a long-ball player off the tee and he scored in a frenzy. From a DFS standpoint, you love the scoring opportunities he offers. If he can make the cut and stay in contention, he can put a lot of birdies and potential eagles on your scoreboard. Look for him to start at 2:03 PM alongside Paul Casey and Paul Dunne, two players that are playing good golf at this time.--Drake PeaughSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoRolling with three runner-up finishes in his last seven starts, Ross Fisher is looking to keep the mojo flowing this week. He showed superb play last year the WGC Mexico Championship by throwing down three under-par rounds, including a phenomenal round of 65 on Sunday. It’s safe to say that as long as his mojo keeps flowing, he will be in contention by the weekend.--Todd Dorsa - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoSergio Garcia, currently ranked 11th in the World Golf rankings, struggled all week long at the Honda Classic. He never once broke par and seemed to struggle with a little bit of everything throughout the tournament. He never had all cylinders firing for his drives, iron play, short game or putting. It still wasn’t the worst finish he’s had, considering the windy conditions he faced. Look for him to regroup as he heads to the WGC-Mexico Championship among a star-studded field.--Drake PeaughSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoRory McIlroy, currently ranked eighth in the World Golf Rankings, struggled mightily at the Honda Classic, finishing tied for 59th and never once breaking par. In fact, he never shot better than two-over par for the tournament. His focus seems to be on the Masters, as that appears next on his schedule. While he’s played extremely well on the European Tour, finishing second and third in consecutive tournaments, the same can’t be said for the PGA Tour, as he’s finished no better than a tie for 20th at the Genesis Open. With a month before the Masters, look for McIlroy to have his game as sharp as you will see it all season long.--Drake PeaughSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoJustin Rose has played stellar golf to start this season. At 37 years old, he has won twice, has four other top 10 finishes, and has finished no worse than 22nd. His playing partners are Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth. His all-around game has been phenomenal. He is hitting his driver well and his stroke average is near the top of the rankings, particularly for the European tour, where he is currently ranked fourth for the season. He is priced fairly all over the place and priced less than his two counterparts listed above. Play him with confidence.--Drake PeaughSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoKevin Kisner has two top-25s, one top-50 and two straight missed cuts so far in the 2018 calendar year. After a dismal opening round of 79 at the Honda Classic, Kisner went on to shoot an even-par round of 70 to miss the cut. At last year's WGC Mexico Championship, Kisner finished 11th with a total of eight-under par. Though his play at his last two tour events resulted in two missed cuts, Kisner can gain some confidence this week since there will not be a cut to make.--Todd Dorsa - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoPatrick Reed, otherwise known as Captain America, was among the victims claimed by the ever-daunting PGA National course. Reed followed up his missed cut at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am with another missed cut this past week at the Honda Classic. Reed carded a two-over 72 in the first round and stumbled during the second round with a four-over 74. At this week's event, Reed won't have to worry about a cut, but still needs to try to regain that 2016 Ryder Cup style of play. Last year at the WGC Mexico Championship, Reed tied for 61st with a whopping six-over par.--Todd Dorsa - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoRafael Cabrero Bello capped of the Honda Classic with a manageable top-30 finish, carding only one round under par. At last year’s WGC Mexico Championship, Rafa finished tied for 38th with only one subpar round. This year, Rafa looks to aim higher on the leaderboard and move himself up in the official World Golf rankings. While not the longest or most consistent, he continues to be a strong challenger.--Todd Dorsa - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 years agoMatt Kuchar heads into this week building off his top-30 finish at the Genesis Open. At last year's WGC Mexico Championship, Kuchar finished in the top 25 with a total of fiver-under par. Firing off two subpar rounds at the first running of the event, Kuchar knows how and where to place his shots at this risk-reward course. Look for Kuchar to be in contention by the weekend.--Todd Dorsa - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoTyrrell Hatton missed the cut this past week at the Honda Classic. While it was disappointing for him, it does not warrant much concern. Carding an opening round of 74, Hatton looked to Friday’s round to shave a couple of strokes to make the cut comfortably. Instead, Hatton added another two strokes, finishing Friday with a two-over round of 72 for a total of six-over par, missing the cut by a single stoke. Hatton is heading to the WGC Mexico Championship, where he finished in the top 10 in 2017 and hopes to repeat or finish better than last year.--Todd Dorsa - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 years agoTommy Fleetwood finished in fourth this past week at the Honda Classic. After an opening round of 70, Fleetwood fired off three rounds in the 60s as well as carding two eagles in one round. Fleetwood's Saturday charge put him into contention while only two back heading into Sunday, but he ended up finishing off the weekend still two behind Justin Thomas. Fleetwood will take his phenomenal golf game to this week’s WGC Mexico Championship, where he finished tied for fourth last year.--Todd Dorsa - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoHeading into the WGC Mexico Championship, Daniel Berger has three top-25s, a top-30 and a missed cut. This past week at the Honda Classic, Berger finished tied for 29th after four grueling days battling the ever-tough PGA National Championship course. Berger shot an opening-round bogey for three-under par, his best round of the tournament, but struggled the next three rounds, finishing at four-over par for the tournament. Daniel’s confidence will continue to build at this year’s WGC Mexico Championship, where he finished tied for 16th with a finishing total of six-under par.--Todd Dorsa - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoJon Rahm, currently ranked No. 2 in the World Golf rankings, has had almost three weeks off since his last event at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, finishing tied for 26th. Already off to a hot start this year, Rahm looks to continue his great play at the Club de Golf Chapultepec. Having played this tournament last year and finishing tied for third, expect him to be a strong contender to win it all this weekend, especially if he continues his excellent drives off the tee.--Drake PeaughSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoLuke List lost in a one-hole playoff at the Honda Classic as he attempted to win his first ever PGA Tour event. A spectacular 32 on the back nine got him into the playoff with Justin Thomas at seven-under, but his tee shot on the par-five 18th went wide right and gave him little options. He eventually left himself 25 feet for birdie and two-putted for par, but lost when Thomas sank his short birdie putt. "Obviously, it hurts right now," List said. "But I think that when I look back on it, I'll be proud of the way I hung in there." List is not entered in this week's World Golf Championship event and will likely next play at the Valspar Championship in two weeks.--Chris Mangano - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 years agoTiger Woods shot a final-round 70 at the Honda Classic to finish tied for 12th, his highest finish since 2015. It was an encouraging sign for Woods, who a week earlier had missed the cut. Woods' long game was much improved from a week ago, and he is getting more comfortable with tournament golf. "I've been away from tournament golf for so long that I'm starting to feel the rounds. I'm starting to get into it quicker, feel the pace, feel the shots and get a better sense of it. The more I play tournament golf, the better I'll get at it.'' While Woods wouldn't commit to his next event, it seems likely we'll see him no later than the Arnold Palmer Invitational in mid-March, if not sooner.--Chris Mangano - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2020 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers – Jo Adell

The most coveted type of player in fantasy baseball is the batter who can hit home runs, steal bases and hit for contact.
