As the PGA Tour season winds down, and the FedExCup Playoffs continue on, players are preparing for the BMW Championship at Cavas Valley Golf Club. With most of the world's top players, this is going to be a really elite field.

With that in mind, let's take a look at three players to target for your fantasy team this week.

BMW Championship Fantasy

Jon Rahm:
Jon Rahm turned in another great performance last week at The Northern Trust, but ultimately settled for a solo third finish. While he didn't come away with the win, it marked his third consecutive top-3 finish and fourth consecutive top-10 finish if you discount the Memorial, where he had to leave due to a positive COVID test while he had the lead. Rahm is playing better than anyone on tour right now and he's also the defending champ at this event. Rahm ranks No. 1 on Tour in Strokes Gained (SG): Tee-To-Green and SG: Total. He's also No. 2 in SG: Off-The-Tee and No. 6 in SG: Approach The Green.

Patrick Cantlay:
Cantlay is like Rahm light right now. He comes in with four top-20 finishes in his last six starts and grabbed a T-11 at The Northern Trust last week. Like Rahm, Cantlay is top-ranked in SG: Tee-To-Green (3rd), SG: Off-The-Tee (13th), SG: Around-The-Gren (8th) and SG: Total (4th). He finished T-12 at this event last season and in 2019 he walked away with a solo second.

Viktor Hovland:
Viktor Hovland isn't as hot as Rahm or Cantlay coming into this tournament, but he is succeeding this year in many of the same areas that make them such a strong choice here. Hovland ranks No. 6 in SG: Off-The-Tee, No. 18 in SG: Approach-The-Green, No. 11 in SG: Tee-To-Green and No. 14 in SG: Total. Hovland also ranks top 10 in approach shots from 100-200 yards in terms of proximity to the pin.
