Scott Stallings will have his tonsils removed and undergo surgery for a deviated septum on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old is currently waiting out a 90-day suspension for violating the PGA TOUR's anti-doping policy. Tuesday's surgery is expected to remedy complications for which he took DHEA, which is on the banned list. "Right now, my health is my No. 1 priority," he said. "I should be down for about a week, but I’ll be ready to go in October. I just want to get healthy." Stallings' suspension will conclude in time for him to compete in the season-opening Frys.com Open on Oct. 15-18. He's fully exempt through 2015-16.

Brendan Steele finished in a tie for fifth place at last year's Quicken Loans and returns for another shot this week.

Steele has top 20s in each of his last two QLN appearances, but he'll take his talents to a new venue this year. After starting the season a perfect 12-for-12, he is three for his last six. Currently ranked 16th in strokes gained:tee-to-green, Steele should have no issues transitioning to Robert Trent Jones Golf Club.

Stephen Gallacher gears up for his tournament debut at this week's Quicken Loans National.

The Scot arrives amidst a slump via sponsor exemption. Gallacher has missed the cut in five of his last six international starts. He is 5-for-8 on the PGA TOUR this season, but is still searching for his first top 25 of the 2015 calendar year. The three-time European Tour winner is a risky play in all formats this week.

Chad Collins hopes the third time is the charm at this week's Quicken Loans National.

Collins missed the cut in his 2010 Quicken Loans debut and returned last year, only to slam his trunk early yet again. He arrived 13-for-17 in his debut, so form was not the issue. After falling short at Aronimink Golf Club and Congressional Country Club, Collins has a chance to redeem himself this week at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club.

Troy Merritt looks to break out of a mid-season slump at this week's Quicken Loans National.

The Boise State product has missed the cut in six straight starts ahead of this week. He is 10-for-23 on the season, placing him at 123rd in the FedExCup standings. We've seen upside with Merritt in the past but he's just too far out of form currently. Gamers should look elsewhere this week if security is a top priority.

Patrick Rodgers has crashed the field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

Rodgers was given a sponsor exemption to compete. It'll be the 15th start of the season for the PGA TOUR rookie with Special Temporary Membership. He'd rank 122nd in the FedExCup standings among members. He's also 17th on the Web.com Tour money list. If he finishes inside the top 125 with non-member FedExCup points on the PGA TOUR and inside the top 25 in earnings on the Web.com Tour, Rodgers will be fully exempt via the format on the PGA TOUR next season and one less card will be available at the Web.com Tour Finals. If he achieves the double, he'll be the first since the new qualifying process was created. It's also relevant to add that all golfers who are already fully exempt for the following season on the PGA TOUR are no longer allowed to participate in the Web.com Tour Finals.

Jonathan Randolph has been given a sponsor exemption to play this week's Quicken Loans National.

The PGA TOUR rookie placed T87/MDF at Glen Abbey last week and sits 174th in the FedExCup standings. He's 10-for-22 with only one top 25 (T20, Wells Fargo). Expect the 26-year-old to continue to take his lumps, but keep an eye on him for the future. His strongest attribute is short game and putting, so the experience of learning how to manage his game in the big leagues is invaluable.

Jason Gore has been added to the published field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

Gore was the seventh alternate when the field was released on Friday, but he gained entry via a sponsor exemption. The likable 41-year-old is 167th in the FedExCup standings with only nine paydays in 21 starts this season. Suffice it to say that his support stops short of reasoning for gamers to invest. He hasn't qualified for the Playoffs since 2008.

Chez Reavie has risen into the field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

He was the fifth alternate when the field was released on Friday. He gained entry when Tom Gillis withdrew. Reavie has cashed in five straight starts entering this week, so there are worse options to round off your rosters.

Vaughn Taylor has eked into this week's Quicken Loans National.

He was fourth alternate when the field was released on Friday, and then gained entry following six withdrawals. Taylor is 8-for-9 this season and coming off a T41 in Canada. Given how well he's performed on Past Champion status, he's a dynamite option to round off any lineup. The 39-year-old is 156th in the FedExCup standings.

Jonathan Byrd is scheduled to compete in this week's Quicken Loans National.

There was some confusion at last week's RBC Canadian Open over whether Byrd was in the field, but he finished the week as first alternate. He was the last man to qualify at the commitment deadline at Glen Abbey, and then five top 10s at the Barbasol Championship bumped him (and four others, of course) from the field. He was the only originally exempt golfer not to regain entry. This week at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, Byrd was third alternate. Six withdrawals paved the way for guaranteed entry. He's 165th in the FedExCup standings but recorded top 25s in two of his last three starts.

Max Homa has been added to the published field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

Homa was the second alternate when the field was released. He gained entry following six withdrawals. The 24-year-old has found a rough going as a first-year PGA TOUR member, but at 164th in the FedExCup standings in this lucrative event, he can make his season in four rounds. That could be said for so many, of course, and he has just one top 25 (T6, Sony), so gamers are advised to invest elsewhere.

Mark Hubbard has climbed into the field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

Hubbard was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday, so he easily gained entry following six early withdrawals. The rookie can use the break, too. He missed the cut in his last two starts and sits 157th in the FedExCup standings. There are only 120 golfers in play at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, so the odds of making the cut are much better, and especially in what has shaken out as a thinner field than expected.

Tom Gillis has been removed from the published field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

At 129th in the FedExCup standings, his is easily the most curious decision today. Then again, he's owned his schedule all year, so we'll give him the benefit of the doubt as golf fans, but we can't take on the risk as fantasy gamers. His playoff loss at the John Deere Classic is his only top 10 in the last three years in PGA TOUR competition.

Davis Love III has opted out of this week's Quicken Loans National.

DL3 was one of eight in the originally published field who competed in the 2005 Presidents Cup at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, which debuts as host of the QLN. The Life Member is 6-for-14 this season and ranks 184th in the FedExCup standings.
