Casey recently cracked the top-100 (85) in the standings, but he is planning to miss this week's tournament to be with his pregnant wife, Pollyanna. Her due date is on September 1 and the veteran chose to be at home with his wife this week instead of securing his spot in the top-100.

4. Jason Dufner

Dufner withdrew from the PGA Championship with a nagging neck injury and it appears it will keep him out of this week's tournament. Unfortunately, Dufner is still listed on many field lists for this tournament. He has yet to officially be ruled out, but it doesn't look like he will be heading to Boston this week.

3. Graeme McDowell

McDowell won't be attending the Deutsche Bank Championship to be with his pregnant wife, Kristin. She is expected to give birth on Monday and McDowell has already planned on missing this tournament to be with his family.

2. Sergio Garcia

Garcia has stated all year that he didn't want to play in all four events leading up to the Ryder Cup, so it comes as no surprise that he won't be heading to TPC Boston this week. Garcia is a top-tier fantasy option every time he turns in a card, but make sure to keep him off your cheat sheet this week.

Rose has been red-hot this summer, but he has been planning on skipping this even for some time. Rose chose to be at home to watch his son Leo start school this week in Orlando. JR will be sitting this tourney out.
