Fantasy Tip Sheet: Byron Nelson

Adam Scott has picked his spots in 2012, trying to remain rested before the busiest time of the golf season.

After a back-door top-10 at the Masters and spots of good play at the Players Championship, he is the clear favorite this week at the Byron Nelson Championship.

He will face a field that includes Players winner Matt Kuchar, Phil Mickelson, Jason Day and Keegan Bradley.

As for our fantasy panel, they almost made it a clean sweep with Scott as their favorite, with only Jeff Rude taking Carl Pettersson instead.

The panel continues to try and catch senior writer Jim McCabe, but the Players did not provide much movement with anyone, with all but two panelists having at least one player miss the cut.

Here are their picks for the week:
