Welcome to Playing the Tips! 

Each week this will be the one-stop resource to soak in all the picks from our fantasy staffers at Rotoworld.com. 

Here is a quick rundown of what sites and formats we will cover each week:

Page 2 will go over One-and-Done as well as Daily Fantasy Golf picks. 

Page 3 will take a look at the European Tour, with the Fantasy Race to Dubai.


Before we look ahead, Mo Yoshimoto takes a look at last week's action in his AT&T Byron Nelson recap.

Last Week: 398 points

Last Week Rank: 686
 

Matt Kuchar ($32,800)
Sung Kang ($19,000)
Ollie Schniederjans ($15,200)
Danny Lee ($15,000)
Michael Kim ($9,100)
Beau Hossler ($3,800)
 

ANALYSIS:  Cracked the top 1,000 last week but DeLaet broke my heart in the end. Looking to rebound this week. Trying to exploit a potential AM-PM draw advantage here. Throwing in Hossler, Lee, Kim, and Kang, as they all have Texas ties.

*Make sure you check our Twitter accounts for any updates before the first tee ball flies on Thursday. Change in weather, tee times, etc. can always lead to last-minute changes and we will let you know through our social media channels. 


This week's Strategy: At the moment, there looks to be a slight edge to starting in the AM on Thursday. Keep an eye out on the forecast over the next two days, but I would suggest using AM starters as a tiebreaker, if needed.

Group A


Graeme McDowell (10): Slim pickings this week in Group A, but G-Mac should be able to hang around for all four rounds if the windy forecast holds true. 

Marc Leishman (9): Is 6-for-6 here but just one top 20. Still one of the better options in Group A this week. 

=SUPER SUBS =

Kyle Reifers, Bill Haas
 


Group B

Jordan Spieth (4): With just four starts remaining I will start him on the bench since he gets the worst of the weather on day one. If he throws his name into the mix then I will toss him in for Rounds 2 thru 4.  

Sang Kang (10): Playing the best golf of his career and lives in the DFW area. 
 

Matt Kuchar (6): Always a reliable option. He's struggling a bit with the putter right now, but that could easily be fixed in one week. 

Kevin Kisner (10): Has back-to-back top 10s at Colonial and starts his week with a Thursday AM tee time. 
  

=SUPER SUBS=
Danny Lee, Charley Hoffman, Brandt Snedeker, Paul Casey

 

Group C

Sergio Garcia (7): Won this event on his first go-round, so you know it's a natural fit for his game. Not seeing a huge slump after the big Masters win, so I will keep riding the hot hand. 

Jason Dufner (7): Has three top 10s at Colonial but still searching for that first win here. With stellar season-long form, this could be the week he finally pops. 
 

=SUPER SUBS=
Jon Rahm, Zach Johnson, Ryan Palmer, Bud Cauley
