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



Marc Leishman (10,900): The Virginia resident should be comfortable in the area. That hasn't played out in the past with just one top 70 in five starts here but this is his first visit since 2015. 

Sungjae Im (11,200): His game travels well and is course-fit proof. Proved to be consistent last season but also flashed winning pedigree the year before on the Korn Ferry circuit. 

Cameron Tringale (8,800): Boom or bust at The Old White TPC. Has a pair of top 5s but also five finishes outside the top 50. Given his summer form, I like his chances to add another boom. 

David Hearn (8,700): A course horse at The Old White TPC. Arrives with four top 20s on his resume in seven starts at The Greenbrier.

Tom Lewis (9,400): Skipped the first two legs of the Korn Ferry Tour Finals but made his presence known with a win at the last. Let's ride that momentum. 

Byeong Hun An (10,600): The Old White TPC puts a premium on finding fairways or ball-striking in general. An shines in the latter, averaging +1.5 SG Off-the-Tee per start over his last 20 starts and also +1.6 SG Approach over that stretch. That's elite. 



Sungjae Im (9,800) - Ranks third in this field in total strokes gained tee-to-green over the last 12 months. A part of that is volume but still ranks 10th if we look at a per-round level. 

Scott Stallings (7,000) - A win and two other top 25s in seven visits to The Greenbrier. 

Harry Higgs (7,200) - Bryson's good buddy is going to try to make a name for himself as he debuts this week. Stormed into the finish with a win and five other top 25s in his last seven starts. 

Bud Cauley (7,700) - Finished T4 in his most recent visit to The Greenbrier (2014). 

Marc Leishman (10,200) - Might get overlooked with other shiny objects glowing at the top. It's Leishman who leads the field in total performance on bentgrass greens over the last three years. 

Tom Lewis (7,900) - Has elevated his game over the last year and now he's playing his first year as a TOUR member. I'm going to ride the hot hand after a win in his most recent start. 


Yahoo DFS

Cameron Smith (35): Not sure I like the course fit but he's still in full work mode as he readies for the Presidents Cup. We are getting a nice discount here. 

Scottie Scheffler (40): The man is a driving machine so I am fine taking him on any and all courses until he's priced out of consideration. 

Sungjae Im (43): The Old White TPC often takes driver out of hand which is perfect for Im who ranks second in the field in less-than-driver performance over the last three years. 

Tom Lewis (38): Getting a big discount on the Englishman who is top 10 in year-long performance but sits at 20th on the salary board. 

Cameron Tringale (24): Was flirting with the first page of the leaderboard often this summer. Now he heads to a course where he owns a pair of top 5s. 

David Hearn (20): We've seen a big dip in his overall performance but I got to take a shot at this price on a course that he loves. Has four top 20s here including a runner-up finish in 2015.
