The big names may not be heading to Innisbrook, but there are still plenty of quality golfers to take a shot on this week. To help you draft this week, here are the top-20 fantasy golfers for the 2014 Valspar Championship.
Weekley finished second here last year, but it was his only top-50 finish in his last five trips to Innisbrook. He will be a very high-risk option this week.
Snedeker has had a disastrous season. He has two top-17 finishes, but he has also missed the cut twice and has finished outside of the top-45 four times. He will be nothing more than a low-end option this week.
Jacobson has three top-12 finishes this year and the super-veteran will be a safe bet to crack the top-20 this week.
BDJ is very streaky from week to week. However, he can be useful for a round or two, as he has recorded three rounds under 67 strokes over his last three finished tournaments.
Rose continues to battle shoulder pain and the heavy-hitter won’t be worth reaching for until he earns another top-15 finish.
Ishikawa has five top-25 finishes this year and he is 20th on the tour in GIR. The 22-year-old will be worth a top-20 pick with this week’s limited field.
Choi has won twice (2002 & 2006) at Innisbrook and finished second back in 2010. His past success here will make him worth a flyer after the top-10 names come off the board.
Tringale has cracked the top-15 in three of his last four tournaments. He shot a seven under here last year and proved that he can compete with the big boys down in Florida.
Haas isn’t the sexiest pick this week, but he has three straight top-23 finishes and doesn’t have a weak spot in his game. Look for him to be in contention all week long.
Furyk has made the cut in all four of tournament appearances (one top-10) and the 43-year-old will be a great mid-level sleeper.
Streelman won this tournament last year and finished 10th in 2012. He will be a serious contender this week.
Leonard has three top-20 finishes at Innisbrook since 2010, including his fourth place finish last year.
Oosthuizen has four top-15 finishes in six worldwide tournaments. He will be a top-15 fantasy option whenever he is stateside.
Donald has three top-six finishes in his last three trips to Innisbrook, including a win in 2012.
Dufner quietly has three top-10 finishes (with match play) on the year, including back-to-back ninth place finishes.
Kuchar has six top-15 finishes on the year and the veteran will be one of the most popular options heading to Innisbrook this week.
Simpson has five top-10 finishes already and he is having another fantasy season. He has cracked the top-17 in four consecutive trips to Palm Harbor and should be an early pick this week.
DeLaet has four top-seven finishes this year. He has somewhat struggled lately, as he hasn’t cracked the top-30 in the last three tourneys, but expect him to turn it around this week in Florida.
English has seven top-16 finishes already this year and the 24-year-old has become a very reliable fantasy option.
Spieth has seven top-20 finishes this season, including three top-10’s. He finished seventh at Copperhead last year and the 20-year-old is primed to have another big showing this week.
