Garrigus has four top-30 finishes in his last six tournaments, including a T11 at the Quicken Loans National and a T5 at the Zurich Classic. He won’t be worth drafting every tournament, but he will have value this week with the limited field.

4. Carl Pettersson

Pettersson has been quietly productive at times this season. He has six top-20 finishes, including three top-10’s. Pettersson even won this tournament back in 2010. The Swede will be worth grabbing as a second golfer this week.

3. Retief Goosen

Goosen always shows up in Canada. He has made the cut at the Canadian Open in his last four trips, including a T10 in 2012 and a solo second place finish in 2009. The veteran has proven that he can be a reliable fantasy option in the snowy north.

2. Hunter Mahan

After a long cold streak, Mahan has started to wake up this summer. He has cracked the top-32 in three of his last five tournaments. He won’t exactly be a top-tier sleeper, but he will still be worth a spot in the top-20 with the lack of superstars.

DeLaet is the top-ranked golfer from Canada on the tour, so expect him to be fired up in his home country this week. There aren’t many big names heading to Quebec and DeLaet can be a dark horse to win it all, so don't sleep on him this week.
