There may not be many big names making the trek down to Cromwell this week, but there will be enough options to make it interesting for us fantasy fans. To help you pick your fantasy foursome, here are five fantasy golf sleepers for the 2014 Travelers Championship.

Not many people noticed that Cabrera finished ninth last year at the Travelers. The 44-year-old doesn’t make much noise anymore, but he knows this course all too well. Cabrera could end being a decent third golfer to grab this week after the top-20 stars come off the board.

4. Charley Hoffman

Hoffman has now made the cut here in four straight attempts and he has become a pretty safe bet at Cromwell. He tied for seventh in 2013 and shockingly tied for second in 2012. Consider him to be a top-tier sleeper to lock onto this week.

3. Chris Stroud

Stroud is eighth on the tour in putting (1.727 putts/hole) and he has quietly become a reliable fantasy option. Even better, Stroud has performed well on this course in the past. He placed second here in 2013 and tied for 17th in 2011, so don't sleep on him this week in CT.

2. Freddie Jacobson

Jacobson hasn’t exactly been on top of his game this year, but he has always performed well at TPC River Highlands. The Swede won here back in 2011, racked up a T8 in 2012, and a T30 in 2013. He won’t be worth reaching for, but Jacobson has proven that he can be a decent fantasy option on this course.

Despite missing the cut at the U.S. Open, DeLaet now has four top-20 finishes in his last seven events. He also finished third at last year's Travelers Championship, so he has had success on this course in the past. DeLaet is starting to heat up again and this will be a week to bet on the Canadian to come up big.
