Brian Stuard

Brian Stuard shot rounds of 70-66-66-67 to finish at 12-under par and tie for tenth this past week at the RSM Classic. This was Stuard's second top-10 to start the 2019-20 season.

Fantasy Impact: Stuard has now made seven of his last eight cuts. He is one of the shortest hitters on Tour that tends to succeed on smaller golf courses like this one in Georgia. Stuard is incredibly accurate with his driver and has very good short-irons. He ranks 39th in strokes gained: tee-to-green, and 43rd in strokes gained: approach, this season.

Vaughn Taylor

Coming off a T2 finish at the Mayakoba Classic last week, Vaughn Taylor once again found himself on the leaderboard after tying for 10th at the RSM Classic this past week. Taylor shot rounds of 68-67-65-69 to finish at 12-under par for the tournament.

Fantasy Impact: Taylor is one of the most accurate drivers of the golf ball, and is a very good putter. This course set up nicely for him, and he is in excellent recent form. The 43-year-old will look to carry on the strong play when the PGA Tours returns in January.

D.J. Trahan

DJ Trahan shot rounds of 67-63-67-71 to finish at 14-under par and tie for eighth at the RSM Classic. This was Trahan’s highest finish of the 2019-20 season, and first top-10 since the Sanderson Farms Championship last month.

Fantasy Impact: DJ Trahan is playing some sneaky-good golf of late. He has made four of his last five cuts, and has two straight top-25 finishes. He ranks 38th in strokes gained: approach, and 31st in strokes gained: tee-to-green, this season.

Denny McCarthy

Thanks to an eight-under 62 on Friday, Denny McCarthy finished in a tie for eighth at the RSM Classic. He shot 11-under on the week and continue to play some excellent golf.

Fantasy Impact: McCarthy was the best putter on Tour last year. He has the ability to get scorching hot with the flat-stick, and can go low with the best of them. He has made all seven cuts to start the season, and has three top-10 finishes. McCarthy must be considered in DFS going forward.

Kyoung-Hoon Lee

Kyoung-Hoon Lee shot rounds of 64-68-66-69 to finish in a three-way tie for fifth place at 15-under par. This was Lee’s first top-10 finish of the 2019-20 season.

Fantasy Impact: Lee hasn’t been playing great golf to begin the new season. He has missed five of eight cuts this year and this was by far his best performance. Until Lee can show more consistency, don’t consider using him in DFS.

Henrik Norlander

Henrik Norlander finished at 15-under par to tie for fifth at the RSM Classic. The Swede shot rounds of 67-65-67-68 for his first top-five finish of the 2019-20 season.

Fantasy Impact: Norlander had a rough start to the season, as he missed his first four cuts. He has played much better of late, making four straight cuts and finishing T5 this past week. The 32-year-old is ranked 278 in the OWGR and can’t be trusted in daily fantasy until he shows more consistency.

Scott Scheffler

Scottie Scheffler continued his solid stretch of golf, as he finished at 15-under par to tie for fifth this past week at the RSM Classic. Scheffler started off a bit slow with an opening round of 70 on Thursday, but went on to shoot 66-63-68 to net himself a top-5 finish.

Fantasy Impact: Scheffler has now made seven consecutive cuts to start his 2019-20 season. He already has five top-20 finishes, and it won’t be long before he wins his first PGA title. Scheffler ranks second in birdie average, second in GIR, and first in strokes gained: approach, this season.

Brendon Todd

Brendon Todd came close to winning his third-straight PGA title at the RSM Classic. Todd was leading the tournament by two-strokes heading into the final day on Sunday, but shot a two-over 72 to finish three-strokes behind the leader. Todd shot rounds of 66-66-62-72 on the week.

Fantasy Impact: It has been some kind of run for Todd this season. He is first in the FedEx cup rank after two wins and a fourth place finish now. The 34-year-old was close to quitting golf just over a year ago, so this is one of the greatest comeback stories we have seen in the game for quite some time.

Sebastian Munoz

Sebastian Munoz continued his strong play of late, as he finished third at the RSM Classic in Sea Island, Georgia. Munoz’ week was highlighted by a seven-under 63 on Friday. He finished at 18-under par for the tournament.

Fantasy Impact: It has been a remarkable 2019-20 for Munoz, as he now has three top-10 finishes including a win at the Sanderson Farms Championship in September. He ranks third in strokes gained: tee-to-green, and sixth in strokes gained: approach, this season.

Webb Simpson

Webb Simpson came super close to winning his first PGA event of the new season, but ultimately fell short, as Tyler Duncan beat him in a playoff. The pair were tied at 19-under par after 72 holes on Sunday. Simpson shot rounds of 65-68-63-67.

Fantasy Impact: Simpson was the betting favourite going into the week, and the highest priced golfer on DraftKings. This was his first appearance since his T7 finish at the Shriners in early October, but he did not appear to be rusty at all. The number 12 ranked golfer in the world will now enjoy a brief break before the PGA tour picks up again in the new year.

Tyler Duncan

Tyler Duncan claimed his first PGA Tour victory on Sunday, finishing at 19-under par and beating Webb Simpson on the second hole of a playoff. Duncan shot a seven-under 65 on Sunday to climb the leaderboard and take home his first ever championship.

Fantasy Impact: This was a huge breakthrough for the 30-year-old, as he was ranked 387 in the OWGR coming in, and hasn’t had a top-10 finish since the AT&T Byron Nelson in July. He was coming off of two straight made cuts, including a T18 at the Bermuda Championship a few weeks ago. Duncan ranks third in driving accuracy and 45th in strokes gained: approach, this season.

Kevin Kisner

Kevin Kisner did his best to battle back after a rough opening round of 73, but fell two strokes shy of the cut-line at the RSM Classic. He shot a three-under 67 on Friday but it was not enough for the former champion of the event to see the weekend.

Fantasy Impact: Kisner had perhaps the best course history at this event going in. He was a prior winner and had a few top-10s at this tournament as well. He was coming off a bad week at the Mayakoba Classic and just was not in the best form.

Matt Kuchar

Matt Kuchar shot rounds of 72 and 69 to miss the cut at the RSM Classic by three strokes. Kuchar finished at one-under par for the tournament.

Fantasy Impact: It was a disappointing performance after shooting a 62 to finish his week at the Mayakoba Classic. He never seems to play well at this event, and this week nothing changed. The PGA will now take a short break over the holiday season.

Billy Horschel

Billy Horschel missed the cut at the RSM Classic after shooting rounds of 74, and 67. Horschel finished at one-under for the tournament and ended up missing the cut-line by three strokes.

Fantasy Impact: It was a bad opening round for Horschel that ruined his chances of playing on the weekend. He was one of the most expensive players on DFS this week so this was a big let down for anyone who rostered him. He had a second place showing at this event a few years back and was playing some good golf coming in.

Pat Perez

Pat Perez brushed off any concerns over an injury, as he finished at 14-under par to place T8 at the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico. Perez shot rounds of 68-65-68-69.

Fantasy Impact: Perez was coming off a withdrawal at the Houston Open, so he was not a popular DFS play this week despite his very strong course history at the Mayakoba Classic. He is one of the best Par 4 scorers in the game, and has been rolling it very well on the greens of late. Perez will not be in the field for the RSM Classic next week.

Abraham Ancer

Abraham Ancer had an impressive showing in his home country this past week at the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico. He shot rounds of 66-72-65-67 to finish at 14-under par and tie for 8th.

Fantasy Impact: This was the second straight top-10 finish for Ancer, as he is still in search for his first ever PGA Tour victory. If not for a rough second round where he shot a one-over 72, he would have been right in the mix this week. Ancer is not listed in the field for next weeks' RSM Classic, so his first win will have to wait another time.

Robby Shelton

Robby Shelton had a solid showing at the Mayakoba Classic this past week in Mexico, finish at 15-under to tie for sixth. Shelton shot rounds of 66-66-72-65 for his first top-5 finish of the 2019-20 season.

Fantasy Impact: Shelton just joined the PGA Tour this season, and already has two top-10 finishes. He gains a lot of his strokes off the tee and has a very strong short-iron game. This was a nice bounce-back for Shelton, as he had missed the cut in his two previous events.

Joel Dahmen

Joel Dahmen shot a six-under 65 on the final day of the Mayakoba Classic to climb the leaderboard and finish tied for sixth. Dahmen finished the tournament at 15-under par after firing rounds of 69-69-66-65.

Fantasy Impact: Dahmen caught fire on the weekend, and almost found a way in the top five this week. He is a streaky golfer, but if his putter catches fire like it did in Mexico, he can't score with the best of them. Dahmen's form is looking great this season, with two top-10s already. He ranks 7th in strokes gained: tee-to-green, in 2019-20.

Harris English

Harris English finished at 17-under par to place fifth at the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico. English was in contention for the majority of the weekend, but struggled on Monday - shooting just one-under to finish three strokes behind Brendon Todd. English shot rounds of 65-64-68-70 for his fourth top-10 finish of the season.

Fantasy Impact: English was a very popular DFS play and was backed by many in the betting community this past week. He was a prior winner at the event, and was going into the tournament in excellent form. English is fourth in strokes gained: total, this season.

Adam Long

Adam Long shot rounds of 63-69-67-66 to finish at 19-under par and tie for second at the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico. This was already Long's fourth top-25 finish of the 2019-20 season.

Fantasy Impact: Long is playing some excellent golf of late. He has made the cut in all six of the events he has participated in and just came close to his second career PGA victory. Long ranks 18th in strokes gained: approach, and 18th in strokes gained: tee-to-green, this season.
