Jon Rahm probably did not earn himself many new fans last Sunday, but at the same time, he may have helped those playing in FanDuel contests this week.
Webb Simpson has five top-25 finishes at this event, including one last year, which makes him a pick to click in this week's contests on DraftKings.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Kokrak's 2016-17 season was a lot like his previous five seasons on the PGA Tour – solid, but not spectacular. In six seasons on the PGA Tour, Kokrak has earned as much as more than $1.9 million and as little as just under $1 million. Kokrak makes a majority of his cuts and he winds up in the top-25 about a third of the time. The problem is, he rarely has high-end finishes. Kokrak has only three top-3s in his six years on the PGA Tour and there's really no reason to think that he'll suddenly become a guy who contends every week. With that in mind, he's not a good salary cap option this season.
Kokrak started on the PGA Tour in 2012 and although things didn't go as planned that first year, he's managed to play well enough to retain his card every year since. Last season was his best to date as he posted a career-high earnings number. He also made 17 cuts, also a career-best and nine top-25s, tied for a career-best. Kokrak is on the way up, but he made such a large jump last season, that it's hard to imagine he can duplicate the performance. As such, he's not a good salary cap option this year. In drafts, he's a sixth-round selection.
Judging by his percentage of cuts made each year, it appears as though Kokrak is improving. After making the cut in under half of his starts as a rookie, he improved that percentage to 60% in his second season and improved again last year to just over 2/3rds of his starts. He's also improved his percentages of top-25s as well. In fact, of the 13 cuts he made last year, 10 of those resulted in top-25s. He's still lacking the high-end finishes that would put him over the top. They may come in due time, but to bank on the high-end finishes this year would not be wise. In draft leagues he should go around the 10th round.
Nothing spectacular about Kokrak's 2013 season. His season was highlighted by a top-3 at the AT&T National in June and he earned three additional top-10s, but he also missed the cut in 40% of his 25 starts. The good news is that he's off to a good start in the 2013-2014 portion of the season with two top-25s and one top-10 in three tries. Kokrak needs a little more consistency in 2014, but he's close enough to warrant a look in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues he should go in the 60-70 range.
If not for the fall season, Kokrak would have finished well outside the top 125. Entering the month of October, Kokrak had earned less than $200K, but that's what the fall season is all about, players making one last charge into the top 125. Considering how he went about gaining his card for the this season, though, it's hard to imagine Kokrak will get much done during the regular season this year.
Talk about upside. In only 16 events on the Nationwide Tour last season, Kokrak won twice and collected five Top-10s. This after missing the cut in three of his first four events. Whatever he did after those first four events, he needs to keep doing, because with that kind of high-end ability, he has a chance to finish in the Top 125 this season.
