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. 

Page 1 is going to look at Daily Fantasy Sports picks (FanDuel, Yahoo, and DraftKings).

Page 2 will have a look at One-and-Done options as well as PGATOUR.com's fantasy game. 

Josh Culp



Webb Simpson (11,100): The straight shooter has finished top 30 in 10 straight events and not showing any signs of slowing down just yet. 

Billy Horschel (9,600): Has six career podiums in the Playoffs so we know he's not afraid of the spotlight. 

Sungjae Im (8,200): Fighting for Rookie of the Year honors, he really just needs to avoid dropping four spots in the FedExCup standings and it should be his. 

Ian Poulter (9,300): A struggle to end the major season with MCs at the PGA, U.S. Open, and The Open. Bounced back with two straight top 10s since then though. 

Louis Oosthuizen (10,400): The South African is trending with finishes of T36, T20, T20, and T6 over his last four starts. What's better than T6? Well, a top 5 of course. 

Patrick Cantlay (11,200): Back-to-back T12 finishes and six of his last seven starts have landed at T21 or better. 



Rickie Fowler (8,800) - Spoiled many lineups last week with a week-ending double bogey. Rarely slumps so I'd look for him to bounce right back into contention this week. 

Jason Kokrak (7,800) - Arrives with back-to-back top 15s to his name. Should like this 9,000* yard layout. *Note: Just an exaggeration but not by much. 

Hideki Matsuyama (8,200) - His short game carried him last week but his ball-striking rarely stays down for long. 

Billy Horschel (8,300) - We've seen Horschel storm the Playoffs before and his game is trending again with finishes of T32 or better in eight of his last nine stroke-play events. 

Tony Finau (8,500) - He was T12 or better after all four rounds in Memphis and was T5 after round one last week in Jersey. Showing those signs of upside again. 

Collin Morikawa (7,900) - The last man standing in the FedExCup Playoffs is usually crowned the Rookie of the Year. As of now, Sungjae Im sits at 26th so Morikawa will have plenty of motivation to post a big finish and play his way into East Lake. It would be an amazing feat to win RoY in a half-season. 


Yahoo DFS

Jordan Spieth (29): We actually see a dip in his salary on Yahoo despite the strong finish last week. This would be the site I try to target Spieth, if at all. 

Rickie Fowler (39): Didn't have his best stuff after skipping the WGC. Should be ready to rock after last week's prep in Jersey. 

Hideki Matsuyama (32): Tiger compared this course to Firestone back in the day. That would be good news for Matsuyama who tied the course record of 61 en route to a 2017 victory. 

Webb Simpson (39): A cracked driver was the only thing that slowed him down last week but he still managed a top 20. 

Louis Oosthuizen (29): He's a big-game hunter and that showed again last week when he steadied a T6 finish. 

Patrick Reed (31): Gamers often jump off the train after a win but Reed has some work left to do as he's still not automatically qualified for the Presidents Cup team.
