The Genesis Open brings us to one of the more popular and well-known courses on tour, Riviera Country Club. It's a loaded field that has 20 of the 30 top players in the FedEx Cup rankings teeing it up. Tiger Woods looks for his first-ever win at Riviera, while Bubba Watson is aiming for his fourth win in six years. 


Let's take a look at some guys to keep on eye on for your fantasy team this week.  


Bryson DeChambeau

DeChambeau has been as hot as anyone of late and has five wins in his last 11 worldwide starts to prove it. So far in 2019, he has four top-10 finishes and one win in Dubai. He also leads the PGA Tour in scoring average. This will be his third start at Riviera. He's one of 41 players currently averaging over 300 yards per drive off the tee on Tour, which is a huge benefit at Riviera. 

Bubba Watson

Watson is another long hitter who has seen more success at Riviera than anyone teeing it up this week. Coming off his third win in the last five years at Riviera in 2018, Watson is just as poised and prepared as anyone in the field to take home this trophy once again. On top of Watson's three wins at Riviera, which account for all of his top-10 finishes, he has four top-20 finishes as well. He is also coming off a T-4 at TPC Scottsdale two weeks ago, so he's playing solid golf coming into a place where he's comfortable. 

Tony Finau

Riviera is a place built for players who hit the long ball. Playing at over 7,300 yards, it's a long course, even for the PGA Tour. Finau fits that mold, currently ranking second in driving distance on tour. He should be able to repeat the success he saw in this event last year when he finished T-2. He also has three top-20 finishes in his last six official starts. 


Xander Schauffele

Schauffele finished T-9 at Riviera last year. Since October, he has four Top-10 finishes and two wins: the WGC-HSBC Champions and Sentry Tournament of Champions. He might not be as long of a hitter as the other guys on this list, but he makes up for it in other areas, ranking fifth in strokes gained putting.
