5. Brandt Snedeker Will Miss The Cut

Snedeker is having a terrible season, as he has only cracked the top-10 once in 13 appearances. He simply cannot stay on the fairway, and as a result, the veteran has continuously found himself in the course hazards. Sneeds will be one veteran to avoid this week, as it is highly unlikely that he will even make the cut this year.

4. Marc Leishman Will Crack The Top-20

Leishman has been quietly productive at the TPC Four Seasons. He finished 12th at the HP Byron Nelson in 2013 and the Australian finished third back in 2012. He will fly under the radar all week, but will end up with yet another top-20 in Dallas when it is all said and done.

3. Scott Piercy Will Shoot Two Rounds Under 71

Piercy finished fifth here back in 2013 and 15th back in 2012. He has shockingly shot under 71 in seven of the last eight rounds here. He should have no problem finished under par in two rounds this week and another strong all-around fantasy performance.

2. Dustin Johnson Will Finish Inside Top-5

Johnson is third on the tour money list, third in birdies (4.29), second in driving distance (308.5), seventh in GIR (70.2%), and 16th in total driving. He does everything well and can be unstoppable when he is on top of his game. The conditions will be perfect this week in Dallas, so look for DJ to put on a show.

1. Jordan Spieth Will Win It All

Spieth has been improving with each passing week, but the 20-year-old has yet to win a tournament in 2014. He has five top-five finishes, including a second place finish at the Masters. Spieth has three straight top-14 finishes and the youngster seems to be the favorite to take home the Byron Nelson Championship.
