After visiting Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, NC last week for the Wyndham Championship, the PGA Tour turns its attention to the Northern Trust at TPC Boston. With a loaded field of players, including Tiger Woods' first appearance since the PGA Championship, the Northern Trust could be a pretty entertaining week.

With that in mind, let's take a look at three players to consider when putting together your fantasy team.

Patrick Reed:
Patrick Reed comes in with a couple of things going for him here. First, he's playing solid golf leading up to this event, placing T-9 and T-13 in his last two starts. Additionally, he has three top-10 finishes in his last four starts at TPC Boston, which includes his win in this event last season. He comes into this event with a top-10 ranking on tour in Strokes Gained (SG): Putting and Total. Not to mention, No. 25 in SG: Tee-To-Green and No. 20 in SG: Around-The-Green.

Justin Thomas:
Justin Thomas has basically been a walking top-10 finish this season. He already has nine of them on the year to go along with three wins. In his last 11 starts this season, Thomas has six top 10 finishes and seven top-20 finishes. He won two weeks ago at FedEx St. Judes Classic. Thomas comes into this event ranked No. 1 on tour in SG: Approach The Green and SG: Tee-To-Green. He's also No. 2 in SG: Total and ranks top-25 in SG: Off-The-Tee and SG: Around-The-Green. In Thomas' four previous starts on this course, he has one win and two top-25 finishes.

Daniel Berger:
Daniel Berger has been one of the best and most consistent players on tour since golf's restart. In his five starts since then, Berger won the Charles Schwab Challenge and followed that up with a T-3, T-2 and a T-13 at the PGA Championship. He did miss a cut at the Memorial Tournament during that stretch, however. Even so, Berger has never missed the cut in his four career starts at TPC Boston. He currently ranks No. 4 in SG: Total, No. 12 in SG: Tee-To-Green and No. 14 in SG: Putting. He might not be the flashiest pick, but Berger has really been getting it done recently.
