The 2022 Valero Texas Open is set to tee off on Thursday, March 31 at TPC San Antonio in San Antonio, Texas. With great weather set for all four days and plenty of talent throughout the field, this should turn into quite the exciting tournament ahead of next week's Masters.
2022 Valero Texas Open Fantasy Value Picks
While we have already gone over the odds, fantasy picks and dark horse winners, let's take a look at some players to consider for the back half of your fantasy lineups. Here are three value picks and sleepers to consider at the 2022 Valero Texas Open.
2022 Valero Texas Open Sleepers
Matt Kuchar Fantasy
Yes, Matt Kuchar has missed three of his last five cuts, but he also had back-to-back top-10 finishes prior to that and his grabbed a respectable T-16 at last week's Valspar Championship. Kuchar becomes an even more encouraging add when you consider his past performance at TPC San Antonio. Matt Kuchar finished 12th and 7th here in his last two appearances and has five top-15 finishes in his nine career starts here.
Denny McCarthy Fantasy
Denny McCarthy has had an up and down season so far, but he's been really solid when he's at his best. Already with six top-20 finishes and two top-10 finishes on the season, McCarthy comes into this event on a string of four consecutive made cuts. He's made the cut at this event two out of his three career starts here and even grabbed a top-20 finish in one of them. His short game has been strong this season, ranking No. 14 on tour in Strokes Gained (SG): Putting. While he's been accurate off the tee, he's been unable to convert those into good scoring opportunities, ranking No. 110 in Greens in Regulation (GIR). If he can clean up his ball striking, he could make a run here.
Jhonattan Vegas Fantasy
Jhonattan Vegas is no stranger to this event, playing in it eight times already as a pro, making the cut in half of them. He has alternated making the cut and missing the cut every year for eight years, and last year he missed the cut, so if tends continues, he'' be on the right side of that line in 2022. Further proof of that is his recent play. While he didn't play in last week's Valspar Championship, he did tee it up at the Corales Puntacana Championship, where he grabbed a T-4 finish. Vegas' game is clearly in a good spot coming into this event, which bodes well for his value here.
