English is the middle of a breakout season. He has six top-10 finishes and the 24-year-old is currently third on the tour in Greens Hit In Regulation (71.3%). Even better, English finished fifth here back in his 2012 debut. This is one week to go all-in with the youngster, because he seems primed to have another strong showing in Texas.

3. Jim Furyk Will Be A Great Sleeper Pick

Furyk is never an early fantasy selection in weekly formats. However, he always showed up at Colonial. Furyk posted a solo fourth place finish back in 2012 at Fort Worth to go along with a ninth place finish in 2009. He will be the ultimate sleeper pick this week.

2. Matt Kuchar Will Shoot Under 70 In Two Rounds

Kuchar finished second last year at Colonial with a score of 13 under and he has three straight top-26 finishes here. The K-Man has now shot under 70 in eight of his last 12 rounds in Fort Worth and the veteran will always be a worthy fantasy option on this course.

Johnson knows how to read the fairways at Fort Worth. ZJ won this tourney back in 2012 and managed to follow it up with a solo third place finish in 2013. Johnson will easily crack the top-five this week in Texas and will be one of the safest fantasy picks.
