Huh finished 19th at the Quicken Loans National, and as a result, he will be a popular sleeper pick this week. However, he missed still missed the cut in three of the last five tournaments and has averaged an embarrassing 71.3 strokes per round this season.

4. Bo Van Pelt

After a strong stretch in which he racked up four top-26 finishes in five games, Van Pelt has once again started to struggle. BVP has finished outside the top-60 in three straight tourneys and won’t be worth grabbing this week in Illinois.

3. Jonathan Byrd

Byrd has hit a serious wall this spring, as he has missed the cut in six of his last nine tournaments. He also has yet to crack the top-10 this year and will be a serious gamble this week.

2. Scott Stallings

In the 15 tournaments since wining the Farmers insurance Open, Stallings has missed the cut eight times and has finished outside the top-60 three more times. He has utterly fallen apart and won't be worth drafting in any format this week.

Na hasn’t participated at the JDC since missing the cut back in 2008 and has never cracked the top-30 at TPC Deere Run. He may be starting to heat up, but he will be a risky pick this week because he simply doesn’t know this course well enough.
