It will be all about holding steady at Colonial Country Club this week, and our fantasy panel has zeroed in on a couple of favorites that fit that description.

Zach Johnson and David Toms are the prototypical steady guys on Tour, with Johnson riding a recent hot streak that makes him the clear-cut favorite this weekend.

From our Jim McCabe: (Johnson has) gone T-9, first, and fourth the last three years here, a cumulative 41 under, and in 24 trips around Colonial, he's never shot worse than 71.

Not a bad track record, eh?

As for our fantasy panel, it was a rough week, with five of the six attaching themselves to Adam Scott, who missed the cut at the Byron Nelson Championship. Two our our panelists - including our leader McCabe - had both players miss the cut.

But everyone is allowed a down week, right? Here are their picks for the Colonial:

Rank Winner Wild Card Last Week
Rude Jason Dufner

Golf's new 'it' guy. Great ball-striker on a roll and riding high. And Colonial suits his precision.

David Toms

Defending champ plays well here.

Winner: Carl Pettersson (MC); wild card: D.A. Points ($78,780). 2012 total: $6,173,106.

McCabe Zach Johnson

What's not to like? In recent weeks he's been second at Harbour Town and TPC Sawgrass, courses that are similar to Colonial – made for ball-strikers. Oh, and there's this: He's gone T-9, first, and fourth the last three years here, a cumulative 41 under, and in 24 trips around Colonial, he's never shot worse than 71. Like I said, what's not to like?

Brian Harman

There have been a few glittering moments in his rookie season, but the diminutive lefthander is still looking for a breakthrough performance. Colonial could offer the perfect opportunity.

Winner: Adam Scott (MC); wild card: Jeff Overton (MC). 2012 total: $7,316,107.

Martin Zach Johnson

He's finished runner-up in two of his past three starts (Heritage, Players) and has a good track record at Colonial. He was fourth last year, won in 2010 and was ninth in 2009.

Charlie Wi

He continues to knock on the door for that first PGA Tour win. He was runner-up here last year and has finished in the top 15 in three of his past four appearances at Colonial. He was fourth at the Texas Open and 25th at the Players Championship.

Winner: Adam Scott (MC); wild card: Brian Davis ($14,430). 2012 total: $3,767,674.

Miceli Rickie Fowler

Showing exactly what everyone thought Fowler could do when he left Oklahoma State, it just took a little more time..

Boo Weekley

Not may courses set up better for Weekley than Colonial.

Winner: Gary Woodland ($53,950); wild card: Ryan Palmer ($156,000). 2012 total: $6,552,381.

Ringler Matt Kuchar

Kuchar has been one of the most consistent players on the PGA Tour the past few seasons and he appears to be finding a groove. Kuchar has played well in this event in the past and should be a name in contention on Sunday.

Vijay Singh

Singh is coming off his first top 10 of the year at the Byron Nelson Championship. Don’t be surprised if he continues to play well.

Winner: Adam Scott (MC); wild card: Jeff Overton (MC). 2012 total: $4,455,852.

Lavner Zach Johnson

Two runners-up in his past three starts, dating to the Heritage. Tailor-made for Colonial, he’s gone 4th-1st-9th in his last three appearances there.

David Toms

Quiet season so far for the defending champion, but has top 15s in his past two starts. His track record at Colonial is too good to ignore.

Winner: Adam Scott (MC); wild card: Brian Gay ($14,430). 2012 total: $670,845.
