Most golfers have their focus set on the Masters with only a week to go before the first major of the year, but there is another PGA Tour event happening this weekend, the Valero Texas Open.

The field might not be as star-studded as the one coming up at Augusta, but there are certainly some noteworthy names teeing it up in Texas this week.

Let's take a look at some guys to watch out for when putting together your fantasy lineup for this tournament.

Ricky Fowler:

Fowler was one of the first players to skip last week's match play event and commit to this tournament. Fowler is 10th in the FedExCup rankings and got there on the heels of some great play this year, which includes three top-10 finishes and a win at the Waste Management Open.

Tony Finau:

Finau played well to start last week's WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play event, but ended up losing to the eventual champion, Kevin Kisner. Since Finau missed the cut at the Waste Management open, he has really turned it around, grabbing three top-25 finishes in his last four events.

Jordan Spieth:

Spieth is struggling to start in 2019 much the same way he finished in 2018, but with Augusta on the horizon, Spieth could use this tournament to turn things around. He did get a match play win in last week's event, so there are signs of life.

Billy Horschel:

Horschel is somewhat of a long shot here, but could provide exceptional value. He has had success in recent years at TPC San Antonio, finishing in the top-5 in two of his last four starts at this event. Horschel has one top-10 finish this season, at the Farmers Insurance Open, and a T-11 and T-16 at the WGC-HSBC Champions and The Honda Classic, respectively.
