Ever since his back-to-back top-six finishes, Fowler has missed the cut twice, finished 38th at the Wells Fargo, and 77th at the PLAYERS. He will be a risky selection this weekend.

Jacobson has eight top-20 finishes this season, and while the veteran won't be a threat to win it all, he will be a pretty safe bet to crack the top-20.

Horschel is starting to pick up his game, as he has finished 26th at the PLAYERS and 15th at Memorial. He finished tied for 11th here in 2013 and will finally be worth a grabbing as a first golfer in deeper formats.
