The excitement of the 2020 PGA Championship may be behind us, but that doesn't mean the golf world is going to slow down any time soon. The next stop on the PGA Tour is Sedgefield Country Club in North Carolina for the Wyndham Championship.

With that in mind, let's take a look at a few players to consider when putting together your fantasy golf lineup this week.

PGA Fantasy Picks

1. Webb Simpson

Cheaper than Brooks Koepka on FanDuel, Webb Simpson is actually the outright favorite on FanDuel Sportsbook this week, at +800 (compared to +1100 for Koepka). Simpson has been hit-or-miss since the tour returned in June, but he does have an outright win (RBC Heritage) and a pair of top-15 finishes in his last five events. Simpson has also been outstanding at Sedgefield over his career, finishing top-three in each of the last three Wyndham Championships, and ranking top-10 in 7 of 11 appearances.

2. Paul Casey

Strokes Gained: Approach (SG: Approach) is a key stat at Sedgefield, and that is Paul Casey's bread and butter. He ranks third on tour in SG: Approach, and neither of the golfers ahead of him are playing this week. Casey has only played at Sedgefield once in the last five years, but that was a 13th-place finish in 2019. Before that he finished 3rd in 2015 and 18th in 2014.

3. Russell Henley

On the same thread as Casey, Russell Henley ranks fourth on tour in SG: Approach. He's not in great form right now, missing a couple cuts and only finishing top-30 once in six events since the tour returned, but this could be a bounce-back week for Henley, making his modest DFS salary appealing.
