A look at whom our fantasy experts say should be on your team as the FedEx Cup playoffs get under way at The Barclays this week.

Rank Winner Wild Card Last Week
Rude Charles Howell III

Four top-5 finishes since early June, including last week.

Andres Romero

Three top-6 finishes since late June, including third at RBC Canadian Open and T-4 at the Greenbrier recently in consecutive weeks.

Winner: David Toms (T-17); wild card: Chad Campbell (T-47)

McCabe Jason Day

For 27 holes he looked like a threat to win the PGA Championship, only to collapse and miss the cut. The guess is, the Aussie will come back with a fierce effort in the playoff opener.

Jim Furyk

He's plunged to No. 66 in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings, yes. But he's shown signs of life in recent weeks, including a T-9 at Wyndham, and here's guessing he'll have his playoff game in good form.

Winner: Webb Simpson (Won); wild card: Chris Kirk (MC).

Martin Steve Stricker

Stricker's worst finish in 14 stroke-play starts this year? 29th. That's just crazy.

Heath Slocum

The former Barclays champ is starting to turn things around after a poor season. He rebounded from a first-round 80 at the PGA with a 67, then finished a solid 17th at the Wyndham.

Winner: Webb Simpson (Won); wild card: Bud Cauley (T-52).

Ringler Steve Stricker

You could pick a number of players with a strong field this week at Plainfield Country Club, but Stricker, who is No. 1 in Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index is as good as it gets. Stricker has only finished outside the top 20 three times in 16 starts this year and has finished inside the top 20 in his last 11 starts.

Mark Wilson

After winning two of first three events to start the 2011 season, Wilson seems to be trending well. Has made four cuts in a row and could surprise in the playoffs.

Winner: Chez Reavie (T-9); wild card: Pat Perez (T-17).

Miceli Hunter Mahan

Not having the best of seasons, but a course like Plainfield should suit him and his ability to go low.

Mark Wilson

Did everyone forget he won twice in 2011? He is a very good ball striker and putter and the shorter course should suit him just fine.

Winner: Not available; wild card: Not available
