Hoffman posted back-to-back top-17 finishes in May, but he has cooled off as the summer months have progressed. He has missed the cut in four of his last six tournaments and has yet to crack the top-65. Hoffman is simply another youngster trying to make a name for himself on the tour.

4. Ernie Els

Els may be one of the most well-known veteran heading to Quebec, but he won’t be worth gambling on this week. Els has shockingly missed the cut in six of his 12 tournaments this season. It is safe to say that the 44-year-old’s best golf is behind him.

3. Stewart Cink

Cink was a popular second golfer earlier in the year, but his sleeper appeal has quickly faded. He has finished outside of the top-45 in five of his last six tournaments. The American is not on top of his game right now and won’t be worth looking for towards the end of the draft.

Vegas is coming off an impressive T3 at the John Deere Classic, and as a result, it will make him a popular sleep pick this week. He hasn’t cracked the top-30 in the last 10 tournaments, though, including missing the cut four times. Vegas will once again be an extremely risky fantasy option this week.

Kuchar was on autopilot at the beginning of the season, as he racked up 10 top-10 finishes through his first 14 tournaments of the 2014 season. Unfortunately, he hasn’t cracked the top-10 in five straight tournaments. Kuch is spending too much time in the rough and has lost his touch on the green. He will be drafted within the top-five picks this week in all formats, but he won’t be worth the gamble considering his recent slump.
