While much of the golf world begins to focus on the U.S. Open at Merion next week, part of that field will use the FedEx St. Jude Classic as a warmup for the year's second major.

This week's field includes the likes of Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Ian Poulter - none of whom registers as a favorite with our fantasy panel.

Plenty of love is being shown for Freddie Jacobson as the winner, while Brandt Snedeker and Charles Howell III also pick up votes of confidence. Robert Karlsson was selected by two panelists as an underdog pick.

As for our panel, Lance Ringler stays in the lead, but Jim McCabe picks up a lot of ground by accurately predicting Matt Kuchar at Memorial last week.

Here's a look at this week's picks:

Rank Winner Wild Card Last Week
Rude Brandt Snedeker

In his home state for U.S. Open tuneup, so his game face will be on and his juices flowing.

Robert Karlsson

Coming off good form at U.S. Open sectional qualifying. Hasn't had best season but tied for fourth a month ago at Wells Fargo. And he played off in Memphis two years ago.

Winner: Tiger Woods ($12,896); wild card: Scott Piercy ($93,000). 2013 total: $6,608,207

McCabe Freddie Jacobson

Hasn't missed cut since his first tournament of the year and while he hasn't exactly been knocking on the door, he never seems far from doing so.

Scott Stallings

Hopefully he doesn't put too much pressure to play well in his home state, because he's clearly on a nice roll – T-4 each of the last two starts, 17 under for those eight rounds.

Winner: Matt Kuchar ($1,116,000) ; wild card: Ryan Moore ($119,867). 2013 total: $6,938,310

Ringler Freddie Jacobson

Has played in this event every year since 2003 and played well, making the cut nine times. Jacobson has also made 10 consecutive cuts this year on the PGA Tour.

Robert Karlsson

Good form at TPC Southwind and showing signs of rounding into overall good form. Worth a shot this week with history at this event – twice losing in a playoff (2010 & 2011).

Winner: Tiger Woods ($12,896); wild card: Charles Howell III ($58,203). 2013 total:$7,543,048

Masuda Charles Howell III

He has two top-10s at St. Jude and has nine top-25s this season -- in 16 starts. I think this is the week he gets it done.

Russell Henley

The rookie has three top-10s (including a win at the Sony Open) this season, including a T-6 last week at Memorial. Good enough for me.

Winner: Tiger Woods ($12,896); wild card: Charley Hoffman ($13,206). 2013 total: $7,007,330
