Kyle Stanley ($12,500)
Keegan Bradley ($6,700)

Last Week Rank: 10,103


Jordan Spieth ($33,300)
Dustin Johnson ($33,300)
Kyle Stanley ($12,500)
Martin Laird ($6,900)
Keegan Bradley ($6,700)
Patrick Cantlay ($6,400)
 

ANALYSIS:  Really looking to capitalize on the Stars & Scrubs approach with a Spieth/DJ combo. If the leaderboard looks anything like last week then that could prove to be a great decision.

Last Week: 326.0 points

Last Week Rank: 2,848

 

Hideki Matsuyama ($33,300)

Jason Day ($33,100)

Jhonattan Vegas ($19,100)

Jason Kokrak ($6,600)

Robert Streb ($5,600)

Camilo Villegas ($2,100)

 
ANALYSIS: With more than 70% of the field making the cut this week, Mo is using that to his advantage by saving a lot of salary with Villegas. Lots of firepower at the top of the lineup, which should help them rack up the birdies.

Group A

Dustin Johnson (2): Could have a letdown after the big win last week, but I'm not counting on it. Rattled off three straight wins earlier in the year, so let's keep him rostered.

Rory McIlroy (3): Still think he picks up a win before the Playoffs end. He already has two wins at TPC Boston, why not add a third? 


=SUPER SUBS =

Rickie Fowler, Jason Day, Louis Oosthuizen, Adam Scott
 


Group B
Kevin Chappell (3): Top 15s in each of his last two trips to TPC Boston. Currently 11th in the Presidents Cup standings, meaning he'll have plenty of motivation to play for this week.

Hideki Matsuyama (3): Has improved on each return visit to TPC Boston. That includes a T15 last year. If the trend continues, I'd gladly take a top 15.
 

Matt Kuchar (1): He's a machine, regardless of how the course sets up. 

Charley Hoffman (4): A past champ at TPC Boston, also vying for the final spot on the Presidents Cup squad.
  

=SUPER SUBS=
Jordan Spieth, Paul Casey, Justin Thomas, Phil Mickelson

 

Group C
Jon Rahm (3): Back into contention last week with a T3 at Glen Oaks Club. Should continue to feast on another lengthy layout this week.

Patrick Cantlay (10): Treating Glen Oaks Club as a correlated course to TPC Boston. That means Cantlay is high on my radar after a T10 last week at Glen Oaks.
 

=SUPER SUBS=
Brooks Koepka, Sergio Garcia, Keegan Bradley
