Trevor Immelman has the dubious distinction of defending his Hotel Fitness Championship title in the Web.com Tour Finals this week.

It goes without saying that Immelman would have much rather cracked the top 125 in the FedExCup standings or the PGA TOUR money list in an effort to avoid a return trip to the Finals, but that wasn't the case. He played 28 tournaments on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14 and has conditional status after a 145th ranking in the FEC standings. The South African posted four consecutive rounds in the 60s last year in the first event of the Web.com Finals to emerge with the win.

Brandt Snedeker enters the Deutsche Bank Championship with plenty on the line.

There are goals that are in Snedeker's hands to accomplish at TPC Boston and those that are not. At 71st in the FedExCup standings, he must at least do enough damage to crack the top 70 in the standings in order to advance to the BMW Championship. Weighing just as heavily on his mind is the upcoming Ryder Cup. Captain Tom Watson will announce his three captain's picks following the DBC, and it is widely speculated that Snedeker is on the short list for consideration along with players like Hunter Mahan, Keegan Bradley, Webb Simpson, Ryan Moore, Bill Haas and possibly a few others. A big finish this week could secure his FEC fate, as well as push the momentum in his direction for a coveted Ryder Cup spot.

Bo Van Pelt has improved to 73rd in the FedExCup standings ahead of this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

The veteran really is peaking at the right time, having posted a run of T7-MC-T14-T13 in his last four PGA TOUR starts. This is the highest he's been in the FEC standings since tying for 21st in the WGC-HSCB Champions in November. His record at TPC Boston includes a pair of top 10s in 10 trips. It's not unfair to expect at least a top-25 finish out of the surging BVP and a move inside the top 70 in the FEC standings for a trip to the BMW Championship.

Ben Martin has his eyes on a deep run in the FedExCup Playoffs as he prepares for his first Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Clemson product begins the week 63rd in the FEC standing after a T46 at The Barclays last week. That's the type of result he will need at TPC Boston this week to ensure that he remains inside the top 70 of the FEC for a tee time at the BMW Championship next week. This is just his sophomore year on the PGA TOUR, so a three-tournament run in the Playoffs would be impressive.

Jeff Overton begins the Deutsche Bank Championship ranked 83rd in the FedExCup standings.

Overton is a veteran of seven prior trips to TPC Boston, making five cuts and topping out with a T7 in his last trip back in 2012. While he's quietly made his last six cuts, none of them have resulted in a top-30 finish. It stands to reason that he will need his best result since the fourth-place finish at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans if he is to advance to the BMW Championship.

Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño tied for 15th at The Barclays last week to advance to TPC Boston for the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Considering he entered the FedExCup Playoffs in the 119th spot, he needed to do something noteworthy just to advance to this week's tournament. Now 81st, he most repeat the feat and crack the top 70 this week if he is to make it to the BMW Championship. Considering his result at Ridgewood CC was the second-best of his season, the odds are somewhat stacked against him being able to pull another rabbit out of his hat this week.

Scott Langley debuts in the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston ranked 65th in the FedExCup standings.

Langley is fresh off a T30 at The Barclays, which moved him from 73rd to 65th. Should he remain inside the top 70 at week's end, he will advance to his first BMW Championship. He's made six of his last seven cuts.

Ben Crane readies for his eighth appearance in the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston this week.

While he did tie for 10th in 2010, his other six tournaments haven't produced a top-60 finish and have included three missed cuts. Considering his last three starts on the PGA TOUR included two WDs and a missed cut, there is little reason to invest in his direction. Beginning the week 78th in the FedExCup standings, he must finish high enough to crack the top 70 in the standings if he is to advance to the third leg of the Playoffs.

Michael Putnam ranks 99th in the FedExCup standings and squeaked his way into the field at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Putnam missed the cut in his only trip to TPC Boston in 2005, well before the FEC Playoffs were off and running. While he missed the cut at The Barclays last week, he had made his last six cuts leading into that event. Conventional wisdom suggests that he could offer a little value by cashing a check this week, but the deck is stacked against him advancing to the BMW Championship.

Vijay Singh begins the Deutsche Bank Championship ranked 95th in the FedExCup standings.

Singh has teed it up at TPC Boston on nine previous occasions, with his five trips producing a win and three other top-four finishes. His pace has slowed of late, much like the rest of his career, as he is without a top 10 since his win in 2008. He must do enough damage this week to move inside the top 70 in the FEC standings if he is to advance to the BMW Championship.

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.
