Ryan Palmer, $7,600 - Ryan Palmer has had some recent forgettable performances, but he did have 84 fantasy points in the Players Championship. Palmer has also finished in the top-15 in four of his last six appearances at the Fort Worth Invitational, which includes top-five finishes in 2012 and 2014. If you’re looking for a cheap guy who can produce here, Palmer is a solid option.
Jordan Spieth, $11,700 - Jordan Spieth and his price is going to force us to do some deep fishing, but I don’t want to be the guy who gets killed by opponent for not having him. Spieth is head and shoulders the best player in this watered down field and has either won this tournament or finished runner-up each of the last three years. Yeah, I’m not getting beat by Spieth this week.
Chris Kirk, $7,600 - Chris Kirk has had a hit or miss season, but he’s been really good during those hits and that includes 83.5 fantasy points at the Valero Texas Open. Kirk also won this event in 2015, had a fifth place finish in 2012 and a 15th place finish in 2016. If you need to find some cheap players because you added Spieth as well, Kirk is a safe pick.
Charley Hoffman, $7,900 - Charley Hoffman has been awful in his last two fantasy performances, but wipe those out and he’s topped 80 points in three straight weeks. When Hoffman is good, he’s really good for fantasy owners. Hoffman had a top-25 performance here last year and has top-25 performances in four of his last six appearances at the Fort Worth Invitational. I’ll take it.
Brian Harman, $7,800 - Brian Harman is another guy who has simply killed fantasy owners recently, but he’s still averaging 70-plus points on the season. Harman has finished 30th or better in each of his last four appearances at the Fort Worth Invitational, which includes a seventh place finish last year. If there’s one event that can get Harman back on track, it’s this one.
J.J. Spaun, $7,400 - J.J. Spaun is currently 12th in birdie average and should be riding high with confidence after finishing third in the Byron Nelson, which produced 124.5 fantasy points. It really came out of nowhere, but Spaun now has finished 26th or better in two of his last four events and is capable of another decent showing in a watered down field. I’ll roll the dice on the 27-year-old.
