The PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park, golf's first major of the year, has finally arrived. Here at The Duel we have already gone over the overall odds, as well for individual player prop bets and dark horse picks to win. When it comes to fantasy we have addressed the top-of-the-line guys to help anchor your lineup.

Now, we will look at some golfers to consider for the backside of your lineup, the sleeper picks. While these guys probably won't likely come away with the trophy, they will have certain aspects of their game that could make them play better than expected at TPC Harding Park. When building your fantasy team, that's exactly what you need from cheaper guys, just to stay competitive and outperform expectations.

PGA Championship Sleepers

1. Kevin Na ($8,300)

Kevin Na has four top-10 finishes this season and one win. A guy with that much recent success could be a steal at such a low price tag. No one on this list is going to wow you with numbers. Na does lose strokes off the tee, which is important here, but he's been one of the best putters on tour, ranking No. 3 in Strokes Gained (SG): Putting and is No. 18 in SG: Total. He's also been decent around the green and in his approach game, ranking No. 40 in SG: Approach The Green and No. 51 in SG: Around-The-Green.

2. Ryan Palmer ($8,000)

Ryan Palmer also has four top-10 finishes this season, and he's been playing some great golf as of late. In his last two starts, he finished solo second at The Memorial and T-15 at the WGC FedEx St. Judes Invitational. When it comes to stats, Palmer has some strengths that align with this course. He is No. 2 on tour in SG: Off-The-Tee and No. 27 in SG: Tee-To-Green. And despite his cheap price tag, he is still No. 25 in tour in scoring average this season.

3. J.T. Poston ($7,900)

J.T. Poston doesn't have a long resume, especially when it comes to majors (this will be his third career start in a major), but there are some encouraging numbers. He's been solid off the tee this year, ranking No. 53 in driving accuracy percentage and the numbers only improve as he gets closer to the green. He ranks No. 33 in SG: Around-The-Green and No. 13 in SG: Putting. Poston is also No. 34 in birdie average and No. 29 on tour in overall scoring average. To top it off, he finished T-30 at last week's WGC FedEx St. Judes Invitational among a very strong field. He could end up being a great low-cost option this week, especially if you decided to spend big elsewhere.
