Fantasy Golf: John Deere Classic
This week is also the last of this segment in AVIS PGA Fantasy Golf, so if you were holding back your last use of any golfer (for example, Spieth), now is the time to throw him in, as all players will be reset next week. With this in mind, players such as Speith will be popular this week, 59% AVIS, 35% Yahoo.
Spieth is not the most selected player in either game though. In AVIS, 66% of teams are going with Zach Johnson. Johnson was a winner here in 2012. The most popular player in Yahoo is Kevin Kisner from Group B at 47%. People are obviously hoping Kisner can go one better than the playoff loss from last weekend.
Yahoo Fantasy Golf could have some wildly differing scores this week too. Group A only has four golfers to choose from; Harris English, Steve Stricker, Sueng-yul Noh and Kevin Stadler. Choosing the wrong player before someone who ends up being competitive this weekend could set you back in the rankings. This is only Stadler's third event this season so he's tough to recommend. Stricker is a three time winner here and should probably be one of your two picks. He hasn't registered a top ten in a year though, so you are going on his course know-how rather than on any form to speak of.
Without further delay, here are this weeks picks.... Good luck everyone.
AVIS PGA Fantasy Golf: Kevin Kisner, Harris English, Jordan Spieth, Jason Bohn; Tony Finau, Justin Thomas.
