Welcome to the calm after the storm -- better known as the RBC Heritage, the tournament that follows the craziness of Augusta National this season.

While the likes of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson take a week off, there are plenty of big names in this field.

Ten of the top-25 players in our Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings will tee it up this week, including Luke Donald, Jason Day, Jason Dufner and Matt Kuchar.

But it is another player that is catching the eye of our fantasy panel, that being Brandt Snedeker.

The defending FedEx Cup champ faltered on Sunday at Augusta National, but our panel believes he'll rebound immediately this week at Harbour Town.

As for our panel, Nick Masuda is now carrying a slim lead over Jeff Rude, with Lance Ringler hot on their tails.

Take a look at this week's picks:

Rank Winner Wild Card Last Week
Rude Brandt Snedeker

Back in form and in a place where he won two years ago. Had the 54-hole lead at the Masters but was done in by slow greens that baffled him Sunday.

Harris English

Tied for eighth last year, Georgia comfortable in that part of the country.

Winner: Matt Kuchar (Valero; $55,889), Tiger Woods (Masters; $352,000); wild card: Kevin Chappell (Valero; $93,000), Keegan Bradley (Masters; $18,320). 2013 total: $5,327,478

McCabe Webb Simpson

Has established himself as someone who can bounce back with authority. Missed two straight cuts last year, then won the U.S. Open. Missed the cut at the PGA in 2011, then won the next week at Wyndham. And guess what: He has missed the cut in each of his last two starts.

Graeme McDowell

Played better than his scores indicated at Augusta (73-76-MC), which doesn't suit his game. Harbour Town does.

Winner: Harris English (Valero; $13,082), Phil Mickelson (Masters; $18,320) ; wild card: Brendan Steele (Valero; $16,581), Keegan Bradley (Masters; $18,320). 2013 total: $3,174,420

Martin Brandt Snedeker

Here's thinking the 2011 Heritage champ jumps right back on the horse after a disappointing final round at the Masters. He finished 17th in his title defense at Harbour Town last year.

Boo Weekley

He won here in 2007 and 2008, and even though he's had some struggles the past few years, he's still managed to post some good finishes at Harbour Town. He finished T-6 last year, 12th in 2010 and 13th in 2009. Oh, and he's made eight consecutive cuts this year.

Winner: Fredrik Jacobson (Valero; $93,000), Lee Westwood (Masters; $232,000) ; wild card: Cameron Tringale (Valero; MC), Bill Haas (Masters; $89,920). 2013 total: $2,657,884

Ringler Jim Furyk

Not many play better at Harbour Town than Furyk. He won here in 2011 and has posted six top-10s finishes since 2003. T-25 at the Masters and a pair of top-10s in last four starts on PGA Tour this year.

Kevin Streelman

You can draw similarities with this event and Tampa Bay Classic. The two venues - Harbour Town and Innisbrook - require the same type of player to have success. Streelman won in Tampa Bay and was T-17 at Harbour Town a year ago.

Winner: Fredrik Jacobson (Valero; $93,000), Tiger Woods (Masters; $352,000); wild card: Billy Horschel (Valero; $322,400), K.J. Choi (Masters; $23,307). 2013 total: $4,968,194

Masuda Brandt Snedeker

He was fired up after a suspect final round at Augusta. I always worry about an energy drain after the emotions of playing the Masters, but I think Snedeker has something to prove to the world and himself this week.

Graeme McDowell

Didn't make the weekend at Augusta, was fun to follow on Twitter and I still think the Irishman is destined for a great season.

Winner: Charl Schwartzel (Valero; $55,889), Tiger Woods (Masters; $352,000); wild card: Charlie Wi (Valero; MC), Padraig Harrington (Masters, MC). 2013 total: $5,533,667
