FanDuel Fantasy Golf Picks for the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club
Following an exciting finish at the Travelers Championship that gave Harris English a win in a playoff, the PGA Tour heads to Detroit for the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
With that in mind, let's take a look at three players to target for your fantasy team this week.
Rocket Mortgage Classic Fantasy
Bryson DeChambeau comes in as the favorite in what is not the most elite field. He is also the defending champion at this course, coming away with the win in 2020, his lone career appearance at this course. He finished an astounding 23-under par. Dechambeau comes in playing solid golf, grabbing two top-20 finishes in his last three starts. His length off the tee should be key on this longer course. DeChmabeau ranks No. 1 on tour in Strokes Gained (SG): Off-The-Tee, No. 5 in SG: Tee-To-Green and No. 2 in SG: Total.
Webb Simpson has had a quiet season, but he has grabbed two top-12 finishes in his last three starts. And now he comes back to a Detroit Golf Club where he placed T-8 in this event last year. What Simpson lacks in length off the tee, he makes up for in accuracy, ranking No. 13 on tour in that category. He also ranks No. 27 in Greens in Regulation, which has proven fruitful, evidenced by his No. 11 ranking in SG: Around-The-Green and No. 16 rank in SG: Total.
Kevin Kisner represents a pick more on the value side here, but there is reason for optimism heading into the event. He placed third here last year and is coming into the event off a solid T-5 finish at the Travelers Championship. With a field arguably weaker than the one in Cromwell, CT last week, Kisner stands to make another move up the leaderboard here in Detroit. Like Simpson, Kisner has been very accurate off the tee this year, ranking No. 18 on tour. He can also make up strokes in his short game, where he ranks No. 14 in SG: Putting.
