The Preview

The Wyndham Championship obviously won’t contain the level of star power we saw at last week’s PGA Championship down the road in Charlotte at Quail Hollow, but the Tour’s final “regular season” event should provide drama with players duking it out for their last chance at a playoff berth. Sedgefield Country Club has been susceptible to a plethora of birdies and low scoring, as seen by Si Woo Kim’s victory at 21-under just last year. The par-70 layout includes 12 par-fours, two par-fours and four par-threes, so par four-scoring will be a key stat this week. Per usual, SG: Tee-to-Green will be paramount as it’s important to hone in on the field’s best ball-strikers, while birdie percentage and proximity should also be looked at as well. The added pressure of being ranked around 125th in the FedExCup standings could make or break some of these players, so proceed cautiously when considering options right around the cutoff.

FantasyDraft Value Picks - based on $100,000 salary cap

Cream of the Crop

Kevin Kisner - $17,100

Kisner’s final-round fallout at the PGA Championship last week shouldn’t be of much concern for the ninth-ranked player in the FedExCup standings, while his game remains in solid form as he looks to post his third consecutive top-10 at the Wyndham. There’s no glaring flaw with the 33-year-old other than fourth-round scoring average, currently ranking first among the field in SG: Total throughout his last 24 rounds.

Webb Simpson - $16,500

This past champion has made seven straight cuts at Sedgefield Country Club, posting five finishes of T11 or better during that span. He ranks 24th in SG: T2G, 17th in proximity and sixth in scrambling on Tour this season. Simpson is also fifth in par-four scoring, which will come in handy on Sedgefield’s 12 par-fours.

Keegan Bradley - $15,600

Bradley has rounded into form with three top-14s and a T33 at the PGA Championship in his last five starts, climbing inside the top-45 of the FedExCup standings. He’s first among the field in terms of SG: T2G and SG: OTT throughout his last 24 rounds, while also ranking first in par-four scoring during that stretch. It’s now been over five years since Bradley last won on Tour, but this could be the week if he’s able to stay on track heading into the playoffs.

Glue Guys

Kevin Streelman - $14,700

Streelman hasn’t missed a cut since the Wells Fargo Championship in early May, notching four top-18s in his last six starts along the way. He’s third in P4: 400-450 efficiency throughout his past 24 rounds, sixth in SG: T2G and second in SG: Total. Streelman is 4-for-4 in cuts made at Sedgefield CC since 2008.

Brandon Hagy - $14,400

Hagy has placed 18th and tied for fifth in his last two starts at the Barracuda Championship and RBC Canadian Open, close to solidifying a playoff spot at 106th in the FedExCup standings. He’s second among the field in terms of birdie average throughout his last 12 rounds, thanks in part to his power off the tee as he ranks third on Tour in driving distance. He’ll be making his debut at Sedgefield, but there’s a bit less pressure sitting 19 spots ahead of 125th in the standings.

Seamus Power - $14,100

Power has finished no worse than 26th throughout his last four starts, but he’ll need another solid week in order to secure a playoff spot as he currently ranks 123rd in the FedExCup standings. He ranks third among the field in SG: Total throughout his last 12 rounds, and he’s also sixth in birdie average during that span.

Bargain Bin

Cameron Percy - $12,300

Percy has made three consecutive cuts at the Wyndham Championship, but he’ll need more than just a top-70 to make the playoffs. He ranks 17th in SG: T2G, 25th in P4 efficiency and 12th in proximity from 150-175 yards among the field throughout his last 12 rounds.

Ryan Blaum - $12,300

A pair of top-seven finishes in his last four starts have Blaum in solid position to earn a berth in the playoffs, currently residing 103rd in the FedExCup standings. He ranks second among the field in P4 efficiency, 19th in SG: Total and third in birdie percentage throughout his past 12 rounds. Blaum is also 25th on the season in SG: Putting.

Andres Gonzales - $11,900

Gonzales finished T8 here back in 2013, but he might need an even higher finish in order to reach the playoffs. That will be a tough task for someone who’s missed nine cuts in 2017, but he’s 22nd among the field in SG: T2G throughout his past 12 rounds. Gonzales could be worth a flier pick as he ranks 45th on Tour in terms of GIR percentage this season.
