DBJ has three top-25 finishes at TPC Deere Run over the last four years alone. He will be an underrated again this week and will end up being a strong sleeper to look for as a second golfer.

Captain Kirk has made the cut in all three of his appearances at TPC Deere Run, including two T22 finishes. Kirk won’t be worth a top-tier fantasy option this week, but he will certainly carry his weight as a second golfer in Silvis.

3. Kevin Chappell

Chappell has seven top-25 finishes on the year, including a T16 at the Greenbrier Classic. Chappell will be a safe bet to crack the top-20 this week with the limited field heading down to Illinois.

English shared 15th place here in his debut last year. He is in the middle of a breakout season (7 top-10’s) and will be a serious threat to compete this weekend. Don't sleep on English this week.

Stricker has seven straight top-10 finishes at TPC Deere Run, including three wins. He is also the All-Time leader in money on this course. Stricker will be the ultimate fantasy sleeper this week after the top-five names come off the board.
