Chappell has placed 11th at the Wells Fargo, 26th at PLAYERS, and 10th at the Crowne Plaza invitational. He is heating up this spring and will be a great second golfer to grab this week.

Appleby recorded a T9 here in 2013, T18 in 2012, and T27 in 2010. The veteran won’t be worth grabbing each week, but this is one tournament to take a shot on the 43-year-old.

Hoffman quietly has four top-17 finishes on the year. He posted a T9 here last year and the 24-year-old will once again be flying under the radar this week.

Johnson has only missed the cut once this entire season (17 events) and eight top-20 finishes. He currently ranks fifth on the tour in Driving Accuracy (70.3%) and will abuse the fairways of the TPC River Highlands.

Bradley has participated in this event three times and is coming off a career-best T18 in 2013. He enters the week following an impressive T4 at Pinehurst and Keegs will be a dark horse to look for this week.

Stroud placed second here in 2013 and tied for seventh in back in 2011. He will be worth a top-15 selection this week in CT.

DeLaet had the 54-hole lead at TPC River Highlands last season, but he ended up settling for a third place finish. The Canadian is first on the tour in Greens Hit in Regulation (72.0%) and will be a fairly safe bet this week.

Mahan won this event all the way back in 2007, but he is still the all-time money leader at Cromwell and shot a 61 in the final round in 2011. This is the one tournament to reach for the aging veteran.
