Andres Romero returns to the Deutsche Bank Championship for his fourth look at TPC Boston.

The Argentine is playing determined golf, as his last seven starts have all yielded top 45s. This hot streak has skyrocketed him from 157th to his current position of 92nd in the FedExCup rankings. His three trips to TPC Boston have all yielded top 50 or better finishes. The convergence of above-average course history with great form makes Romero a solid option for gamers to consider in deeper formats.

K.J. Choi turns his attention to TPC Boston for this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Choi enters the week ranked 69th in the FedExCup standings, right on the BMW Championship bubble. He cannot afford a result similar to his last six, all outside the top 60. Unfortunately, Choi's track record at TPC Boston is mediocre, with a 4-for-8 record, that includes just one top 30. Currently ranked 33rd in the strokes gained-putting, the potential for his sixth top 15 of the season is still alive.

Pat Perez staggers into TPC Boston for this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Perez was one of the hottest golfers on TOUR to start the season, and even found himself inside the top 20 in the FedExCup standings after 10 starts. It's been a steady decline since, and he now sits in troubled waters, at 89th place in the FEC standings. With 10 straight starts without a top 40, it would be ill-advised to expect a strong finish out of Perez this week.

Brendon de Jonge shared a piece of 9th place at the 2013 Deutsche Bank Championship and returns this week for another crack at TPC Boston.

The Zimbabwean is known for his birdie-barrage mentality, so it's no surprise to see him succeed in a shootout event where going low is vital. Prior to last year, he hadn't finished inside the top 40 in three attempts here, so the volatility is high. With 23 cuts made in 30 events, de Jonge finds himself ranked 79th in the FedExCup standings. His cut-making ability sets himself up as a good option for salary-cap gamers.

Jason Kokrak returns to TPC Boston for his second start at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Kokrak might have returned prematurely from sports hernia surgery, at the PGA Championship, but performed admirably last week at The Barclays. It was only a T61 finish, but playing four rounds at this point in the season is all you can ask for after an injury. Three weeks removed from his return, it's now time to make a Playoff push, as he's currently in the danger zone at 89th in the FedExCup standings. Kokrak provides immense upside week to week, but no one will blame him if he's still shaking off some rust from his three-month recess.

Henrik Stenson won the Deutsche Bank Championship in 2013 en route to eventually winning the FedExCup Championship and is back to defend this week.

The Swede better get his act together, as he is 66th in the FedExCup standings and can't afford a misstep if he hopes to continue his journey towards a second FEC Championship. He tied for 38th last week at The Barclays to make a modest move from 70th to 66th. While a similar result would be good enough to get him to the BMW Championship next week, his eyes are on much bigger prizes than just advancing.

Ian Poulter begins the week at the Deutsche Bank Championship ranked 91st in the FedExCup standings.

Poulter hasn't had a banner season on the PGA TOUR and needs to score enough points at TPC Boston to crack the top 70 in the FEC standings if he hopes to advance to the BMW Championship. Adding to the pressure, this is his last week to secure a Ryder Cup berth and he is outside the automatic spots. He missed the cut at The Barclays last week.

Stewart Cink jumped from 109th to 77th in the FedExCup standings with his T15 at The Barclays, and he now makes his way to the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Cink has made four of his seven cuts at TPC Boston, with a T18 in 2010 serving as the highlight. He must figure out a way to crack the top 70 in the FEC standings at the end of the week in order to tee it up in the BMW Championship. Considering that he's made 14 of his last 15 cuts, he stands a legitimate chance at nabbing enough points to do just that.

Billy Hurley III barely found his way into the field at the Deutsche Bank Championship this week at 98th in the FedExCup standings.

This is his first look at TPC Boston, and Hurley III needs to come up with a big result if he is to crack the top 70 and advance to the third leg of the Playoffs next week. Course history buffs are out of luck, since this is his first tee time at this event. Since his T4 at The Greenbrier Classic, he's missed three cuts and tied for 64th at The Open Championship.

Scott Brown finds himself squarely on the FedExCup Playoff bubble at the Deutsche Bank Championship this week.

Somebody had to enter the week in the 70th spot, and Brown is that man. The top 70 after the dust settles at TPC Boston this week will move on to the third leg of the Playoffs. He missed the cut here last season in his only trip to this tournament. It stands to reason that an identical result this time around would get him bumped from the Playoffs.

Shawn Stefani enters the Deutsche Bank Championship ranked 67th in the FedExCup standings.

Stefani is a first-timer in the FedExCup Playoffs and tied for 30th in The Barclays last week. Considering he entered the Playoffs in the 83rd spot, he's poised to make a deep run with a solid result at TPC Boston. He sits 38th in the all-around ranking, so his game seems adaptable to many different types of layouts. Perhaps TPC Boston will be a friendly venue.

David Hearn is preparing to take on TPC Boston in his fourth Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Canuck missed the cut here back in 2005, but his recent returns have been promising. He tied for 26th in 2012 and returned to share 35th last season. Beginning the week 75th in the FedExCup standings, Hearn needs another solid return this week if he hopes to advance to the BMW Championship for the third leg of the Playoffs. He tied for 38th at The Barclays last week.

Brian Stuard tied for 74th at The Barclays last week and now makes his way to the Deutsche Bank Championship for the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs.

Stuard now sits 64th in the FEC standings, and must do enough heavy lifting at TPC Boston this week to remain inside the top 70 in order to advance to the BMW Championship. He tied for 67th in this event last year, which sends a mixed signal. It's always nice when a player makes a cut at an event the first time he plays it, but it's tough to gauge if he can take the ball and run with it from there.

Chesson Hadley enters the Deutsche Bank Championship ranked 84th in the FedExCup standings.

Hadley is the final rookie remaining in the FEC Playoffs, and is fading fast. He's missed the cut in 10 of his last 12 starts, finishing alone in 70th at The Barclays last week. He played well early this season, winning in Puerto Rico, but perhaps the grind of the full season has worn him out. It would be a surprise if he was still standing at week's end.

Luke Donald stumbles into TPC Boston for his eighth appearance at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Englishman is struggling to find his form ahead of this week's event. After opening the season with six top 35s in his first seven stroke-play events, he's gone eight straight PGA TOUR events without another. Donald enters the week ranked 80th in the FedExCup standings, and will need a big week to move onto the BMW Championship and also to impress Ryder Cup captain, Paul McGinley. Class is permanent and motivation is high, making Donald an interesting off-the-radar pick for gamers this week.
