Fantasy Tip Sheet: Deutsche Bank

NORTON, Mass. – With the FedEx Cup playoffs trimmed to the top 100 this week, there will be plenty of stars in the Deutsche Bank Championship field as they chase the overall $10 million grand prize.

Some are just trying to get the attention of Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III – notably Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker – while others are trying simply to get inside the top 70 of the FedEx standings and advance to the BMW Championship, including Charl Schwartzel (No. 71), D.A. Points (No. 72) and K.J. Choi (No. 95).

A victory can mean everything – as Nick Watney can attest to by vaulting to the top spot with a win at Barclays – and our panel thinks that two solid putters have good chances this week.

Two of our fantasy experts believe Snedeker is a good bet to make some noise this week and possibly secure a Ryder Cup wild-card pick, while two others think Jason Dufner will use his week off to win at TPC Boston.

Here is a look at their favorites and underdogs this week:
