This week is when players and fans really consider the heart of the PGA Tour season to start with THE PLAYERS Championship teeing off on Thursday at the famed TPC Sawgrass.

Let's take a look at some golfers to consider when putting together your fantasy team this week.

THE PLAYERS Championship Fantasy

Collin Morikawa:
Collin Morikawa doesn't exactly have a great track record on this course, but he's currently on an insane run to start this season. He's played in five PGA Tour events so far this season and his worst finish is a T-7, the other four were top-five finishes. Morikawa ranks top 10 in nearly every Strokes Gained (SG) category so far. He's No. 8 in SG: Off-The-Tee, No. 4 in SG: Approach The Green, No. 4 in SG: Putting, NO. 6 in SG: Tee-To-Green and No. 1 in SG: Total. If anyone's in position to change his fortune on this course, Morikawa is the guy.

Rory McIlroy:
While Rory didn't put together the masterful performance we had predicted last week, he did manage a T-13 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. And for THE PLAYERS Championship he comes back to another course he's had a ton of success on, while still playing some good golf. McIlroy finished in the top-8 in four of his last eight starts here. That stretch also includes a win in 2019. Visiting back-to-back courses McIlroy has won at should be great for his confidence and play heading into this event.

Adam Scott:
Adam Scott is more of your value type play here, but he's at a great number for a guy with this much experience and success on this course. Scott has played this event 19 times. He's a former winner and in total has 10 top-20 finishes and 4 top-10 finishes. He struggled a bit to close things out at the Arnold Palmer last week, but in his last start before that at the Genesis Invitational he grabbed a T-4. Target Scott at some point on your roster if the price is right.
