2 months agoIan Poulter is set to tee it up in this week's BMW Championship. Poulter heads to Medinah Country Club outside of the top 30 in the FedEx Cup points standings, but the Englishman has played well in his prior trips to the legendary Illinois course. He logged a T9 in the 2006 PGA Championship and went 4-0 during the 2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah. Poulter is fresh off a sharp ball striking week at the Northern Trust, where he gained a massive 7.2 strokes on approach shots. His combination of strong course history and trending form makes him a rock-solid DFS option this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 months agoPatrick Reed logged his first victory of 2019 at last week's Northern Trust. Reed will look to keep the positive momentum rolling at the upcoming BMW Championship at Medinah Country Club. "Captain America" has experienced some dry spells this season, but he's been playing at an elite level for the last couple of months. He ranks fifth in this week's field in total strokes gained over his last 24 rounds. Reed is prone to massive hot streaks and continuing to ride him in DFS tournaments this week is worth considering. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 months agoTiger Woods has withdrawn from the Northern Trust. In a written statement, Woods cited a "mild oblique strain that led to pain and stiffness" as the reason for his early exit from the first event of the FedEx Cup playoffs. He struggled mightily in his opening round Thursday at Liberty National, only managing a four-over par 75 in his first action since missing the cut at the Open Championship. Woods noted in his statement that he remains hopeful that he can compete in next week's BMW Championship, but the 15-time major champion is quickly becoming unplayable in DFS contests. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 months agoXander Schauffele is set to tee it up in this week's Northern Trust. Schauffele heads to Jersey City flying somewhat under the radar on the heels of two underwhelming finishes at the Open Championship and WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. While his last couple of outings have been mediocre, it wouldn't be wise to sleep on the 25-year-old from California. Schauffele has consistently played his best golf on the biggest stages with tough tracks like Liberty National being his specialty. The "X-Man" is an intriguing DFS option this week and a deep run in the FedEx Cup playoffs isn't out of the question. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 months agoCollin Morikawa is set to make his FedEx Cup playoff debut in this week's Northern Trust. Morikawa has been a breakout star on the PGA Tour since turning professional in June. The Cal product qualified for the playoffs with a win at the Barracuda Championship in just the sixth start of his young career. He is quickly proving himself to be an elite ball striker and he ranks first in this field in strokes gained approach over 24 measured rounds. The competition at Liberty National will be much stiffer than what he's faced over the past month, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him rise to the challenge this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 months agoPatrick Cantlay has had a tremendous 2019 season. The youngster will attempt to kick start a FedEx Cup playoff run in this week's Northern Trust and heads to Jersey City at sixth place in the FedEx points standings. Cantlay captured a breakthrough victory at the Memorial earlier this year and must be considered one of the favorites as we head into the PGA Tour playoffs. The UCLA product has no holes in his game at the moment and ranks third on the PGA Tour in strokes gained tee-to-green this season. He will be a popular, but elite, DFS option this week.--Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour

2 months agoJustin Thomas is set to tee it up in this week's Northern Trust. Thomas has been on fire with his irons recently, gaining over four strokes on approach in each of his last three starts. Unfortunately, the young American hasn't found the same type of success on the greens and ranks near the bottom of the Northern Trust field in strokes gained putting over his last 24 rounds. J.T.'s sharp ball striking is consistently placing him in contention and he is perhaps a good putting week away from his first victory of 2019. He's a high-upside DFS option in Jersey City this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 months agoHideki Matsuyama heads to this week's Northern Trust in surprisingly-cool form. Matsuyama has been one the most consistent players in the world this year with 19 made cuts in 21 starts, but those two missed cuts have occurred over his last three starts. The Japanese icon is an elite-level iron player that ranks fourth on the PGA Tour in strokes gained approach this season. He's a nice bounce-back candidate this week on a Liberty National layout that rewards great ball striking. You can fire him up in DFS tournaments. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 months agoJordan Spieth is set to tee it up in this week's Northern Trust. Spieth continues to be plagued by erratic play. He went from contention to an MDF in last week's Wyndham Championship due to a third-round 77. The Texan can blame his inconsistency on his poor ball striking, which has him ranked just 160th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained tee-to-green for the year. The 26-year-old has been a magician on the greens and stands first on the Tour in putting average, but that might not be enough to save him this week on a Liberty National layout that punishes wayward shots. Spieth is a risky fantasy proposition in his current form. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 months agoTommy Fleetwood heads to this week's Northern Trust as one of the hottest golfers on the planet. Fleetwood has recorded a runner-up finish at the Open Championship and a T4 at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude in his last two starts. The Englishman has been a force in the United States over the last few years, but he is still chasing his first PGA Tour victory. He has an excellent chance this week on a Liberty National layout that rewards accuracy off the tee and sharp ball striking, two areas in which "Fairway Jesus" thrives. Fleetwood ranks 11th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained tee-to-green and is a terrific fantasy option in all formats. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 months agoJon Rahm is in the field for this week's Northern Trust. Rahm heads to New Jersey as one of the hottest players in the world and hasn't finished worse than a tie for 11th place in his last three starts. The young Spaniard is one of the more aggressive players on the PGA Tour. He ranks fourth on the Tour in strokes gained off the tee and it won't be surprising to see him attack Liberty National's long par fours with his driver. Rahm tends to be a "boom or bust" DFS play, but his tournament-winning upside makes him one of the most intriguing options in the field. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 months agoJustin Rose won the 2018 FedEx Cup and will begin his title defense this week in New Jersey at the Northern Trust. He heads to Liberty National sitting 11th in this year's FedEx points standings. Rose has exhibited trending form in the last two months with a close call at the U.S. Open, in addition to strong outings at the Open Championship and WGC-FedEx St. Jude. The Englishman has been on fire on the greens and stands fifth in the Northern Trust field in strokes gained putting over his last 24 rounds. He's a rock-solid DFS option at his sub-$10k DraftKings price tag. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 months agoSungjae Im is in the field for this week's Northern Trust. It will mark Im's first-career appearance in the FedEx Cup playoffs. The 21-year-old has put together a wildly successful rookie campaign on the PGA Tour, with eight top-10 finishes in 32 starts this season. He heads to Liberty National this week at 23rd in the FedEx Cup points standings. Im has an excellent chance to qualify for the season-ending Tour Championship with good performances over the next two weeks. His DFS price tag is very affordable and he's a tremendous value play in this spot. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 months agoPatrick Reed is set to tee it up in the Northern Trust this week. Reed is currently on the outside looking in when it comes to the President's Cup roster and will attempt to make a strong statement about the current state of his game at Liberty National. The 2018 Masters champion has struggled for long stretches this season, but Reed has found his form over the last two months, with seven-straight made cuts and two top-10 finishes. The 29-year-old was wielding a hot putter in last week's Wyndham Championship and gained over six strokes on the greens at Sedgefield. His trending form makes him a very viable DFS option this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
Share:
2 months agoBrooks Koepka is in the field for the upcoming Northern Trust. Koepka heads to Liberty National fresh off a win at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude in Memphis two weeks ago. The 29-year-old enters the FedEx Cup playoffs ranked number one in both the OWGR and FedEx Cup points standings. Motivation is always a concern with Koepka, but his recent win in the non-major WGC event indicates that he will be all systems go throughout the upcoming PGA Tour playoffs. He sits atop the DraftKings salary scale at $12k and will be worth every penny if he brings his "A game" to Liberty National. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
