2 months agoTiger Woods is in the field for the upcoming Northern Trust, the first event of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. It will be Woods' first start since his disappointing missed cut at the Open Championship. The 43-year-old legend has played a drastically reduced schedule this season and has made just 10 starts in 2019. His track record at Liberty National is superb, as he logged runner-up finishes on this course in both 2009 and 2013. Woods' DFS price tag continues to decrease and his reasonable salary makes him an intriguing option in large-field GPPs this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
2 months agoPaul Casey entered the final round of the Wyndham Championship trailing leader Benny An by just three shots, but the Englishman failed to get anything going in his final round at Sedgefield Country Club. Casey was undone by a brutal double bogey on the 10th hole and settled for a final-round 69 to finish in a share of 13th place at 15-under par. As is often the case, the veteran was near the top of the field in strokes gained tee-to-green, but was held back his ineptitude on the greens and finished just 72nd in the field in strokes gained putting. Casey currently ranks eighth in the FedEx Cup points standings and will be a serious contender in the upcoming PGA Tour Playoffs. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
2 months agoMatthew Wolff already has a PGA Tour win on his professional resume and he continued to impress at this week's Wyndham Championship. Wolff finished at 14-under par at Sedgefield Country Club to nab a share of 19th place. The youngster was mediocre both off the tee and on the greens, but was extremely sharp with his irons in Greensboro. He finished sixth in the field in strokes gained on approach with an impressive plus-5.58 mark for the week. Wolff is in next week's Northern Trust field thanks to his win at the 3M Open and the rising star is a player worth keeping an eye on in the PGA Tour FedEx Playoffs. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
2 months agoJoaquin Niemann fired a beautiful final-round 63 Sunday to move into a tie for 13th place at the Wyndham Championship. It was Niemann's fifth top-25 finish in his last six starts. The ridiculously talented 20-year-old has really picked up steam over the last two months, thanks in large part to a vastly improved putting stroke. The Chilean has qualified for the PGA Tour FedEx Playoffs that begin next week at the Northern Trust, but at 74th on the points list, he will need to play well in order to move inside the top-70 rankings and advance to the BMW Championship. Niemann is currently one of the hottest players in the world and should be a high priority when constructing DFS lineups next week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
2 months agoIt was a sweet homecoming in North Carolina this week for J.T. Poston. The Hickory native continued the trend of winners with local ties at the Greensboro-based Wyndham Championship. Poston fired a blistering final-round 62 to finish at 22-under par for the tournament to earn the first PGA Tour victory of his career and a payday worth over $1 million. The young up-and-comer didn't record a bogey all week at Sedgefield and became the first player since Lee Trevino in 1974 to win a 72-hole stroke play event with no blemishes on the scorecard. Poston has flashed some talent this season, but it's fair to say this win was unexpected. He will be an intriguing fantasy option in the future. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
2 months agoWebb Simpson has been dominant at the Wyndham Championship throughout his career and he once again turned in a strong performance in the 2019 edition of the regular season finale. Simpson shredded Sedgefield Country Club to finish at 21-under par for the tournament, but the North Carolina native came up one stroke shy of eventual winner J.T. Poston. It was Simpson's second straight week in the runner-up spot and he heads into the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup Playoffs with positive momentum and blistering-hot form. He will be a DFS option to target throughout the playoffs. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
2 months agoViktor Hovland continued to impress with his play at this week's Wyndham Championship. Hovland scored a fourth-place finish at Sedgefield Country Club by putting together four sub-70 rounds. The youngster out of Oklahoma State needed a share of second-place or better to secure his PGA Tour card for the upcoming season and will now be forced to play in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals in an attempt to grab one of the 25 available Tour cards for 2019-20. Hovland is a near lock to secure a card in the KFT qualifier and will continue to be a great source of fantasy output for years to come. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
3 months agoDustin Johnson recorded a runaway victory during last year's event held at TPC Southwind, posting a 19-under par en route to a six-shot victory. However, things have not been as easy for the second-ranked player in the world as of late, failing to post a top-35 result in his last three tournaments. These sorts of poor runs are very uncommon for the big-hitting American so expect Johnson to turn things around shortly. Perhaps a no-cut event like the WGC - St. Jude Invitational is just what the 35-year-old needs to regain his form.--Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
3 months agoRory McIlroy entered the Open Championship last week with visions of glory in his native country of Ireland but was forced to settle for heartache after missing the cut. The Irishman opened Thursday with an eight-over 79 but was able to make an epic rally on Friday, shooting a six-under 65. Unfortunately, despite his heroic efforts, the 30-year-old just missed out on the weekend. This week, McIlroy will be quickly back in action at the WGC - St. Jude Invitational but admitted on Wednesday that he hadn't touched a club since Friday afternoon. While not practicing leading into the event makes us apprehensive, the small break might have been what the third-ranked player in the world needed to get his head back on straight.--Spencer Aguiar - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
3 months agoPatrick Cantlay disappointed his fantasy backers with an underwhelming T41 finish in last week's Open Championship. Despite his mediocre performance at Royal Portrush, Cantlay remains an elite DFS option in this week's WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. The rising star stands first on the PGA Tour in scoring average at 69.18 and is one of the most promising young players in the game. Some DFS players might be hesitant to roster Cantlay again this week, but sharp players will jump right back on the 27-year-old. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
3 months agoHenrik Stenson heads to Tennessee for this week's WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational on the heels of a T20 at the Open Championship. Stenson suffered a mini-collapse Sunday at Royal Portrush and lost a lot of ground on the leaderboard with a final-round 76 in horrible weather. The Swede will look to regroup at a TPC Southwind layout where he logged a T26 last season. Stenson is the best iron player in the world at the moment and his sharp ball striking will be a valuable asset on the tough Memphis track. Despite his hot form, the 'Iceman' might go overlooked in DFS formats and is an interesting contrarian play. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
3 months agoTony Finau's play this season has been slightly inconsistent, but he brings tons of positive momentum with him to Memphis for this week's WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Finau heads to Tennessee fresh off a beautiful third-place finish in the Open Championship at Royal Portrush. It was the young star's second top-five finish in a major championship this year. The problem has been Finau's inconsistent showings in week-to-week PGA Tour events that included three missed cuts in the month of June. His length off the tee and ability to produce birdies, coupled with his rediscovered form, makes him a high-upside DFS option this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
3 months agoMatthew Wolff is in the field for this week's WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. It will be Wolff's first start in a WGC event. The young star out of Oklahoma State won in just his third start as a pro at the 3M Open. Much has been made about Wolff's unorthodox swing, but the former NCAA Individual Champion has been consistent in his short time on the PGA Tour and has gained strokes with his irons in three-straight starts. Wolff can rack up birdies in a hurry, an ability which makes him an intriguing DFS target in this week's no-cut event. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
3 months agoPatrick Reed is in the field for this week's WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Reed heads to Memphis fresh off a top-10 finish at the Open Championship. It was yet another strong outing for the 2018 Masters champion and his third-straight top-25 finish. Reed battled through a horrible slump earlier this year, but his game has steadily improved over the past six weeks. He has gained an average of 3.4 strokes on approach over his last five tournaments and will now bring his red-hot irons to a TPC Southwind layout that rewards great ball striking. Reed's current form makes him an interesting DFS option this week. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
3 months agoHideki Matsuyama is in the field for the upcoming WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Matsuyama heads to Memphis on the heels of a missed cut at last week's Open Championship. The early exit was an unfamiliar feeling for the young Japanese star, as it marked his first missed cut of 2019. Matsuyama has played phenomenal golf as of late and is a tremendous bounce-back candidate this week. He ranks second on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: approach this season and his sharp ball striking will make him one of the favorites at TPC Southwind. He's a terrific DFS option and should have no trouble rebounding from his misstep at Portrush. --Joe Nicely - RotoBallerSource: PGA Tour
