English has missed the cut twice in the last four tournaments and hasn’t finished inside the top-30 over that stretch. English won’t be worth gambling on this week in New Jersey.

4. Zach Johnson

Johnson has amazing stats this year, as he is ninth on the tour in Driving Accuracy and 21st in Greens Hit In Regulation. However, he is in a serious slump right now. ZJ hasn’t cracked the top-20 in three straight tournaments, including a miserable T69 at the PGA Championship.

3. Ernie Els

Els has had a handful of strong performances this summer, including a T12 at the Canadian Open and a T7 at the PGA Championship. Unfortunately, he followed it up with a T64 at the Wyndham Championship. The veteran will once again be a worthless fantasy option this week in all formats.

2. Graham DeLaet

Most assume since DeLaet has two top-five finishes at The Barclays that he will automatically be a top-tier pick this week. However, neither tournament was held at Ridgewood. The Canadian will be rusty this week, so let someone else take a shot on him.

Since winning the Masters, Watson has simply been going through the motions. He hasn’t cracked the top-15 in six consecutive tournaments, including missing the cut twice. Watson will once again struggle this week, so it would be better to avoid him altogether.
