The last tournament of the 2013 season also brings to a close our Fantasy Tip Sheet season.

But the Tour Championship provides one last opportunity for those chasing our leader, Lance Ringler.

There is plenty of variety in our picks this week, ranging from Jim Furyk to Adam Scott to Steve Stricker to five-time 2013 winner Tiger Woods.

Our underdogs are a bit more decided, with the panel split on Nick Watney and Roberto Castro.

Here's a look at our picks for the FedEx Cup finale:

• • •

Jeff Rude, senior writer

Favorite: Jim Furyk

Plays well at East Lake, has score to settle after not closing (again) at BMW.

Wild card: Roberto Castro

Top 25 in first three playoff events, in good form.

Last week: Steve Stricker ($315,000); Ernie Els ($19,253)

Season-long total: $10,139,176

• • •

Jim McCabe, senior writer

Favorite: Adam Scott

After unexpected win at The Barclays, he went quiet at the Deutsche Bank Championship and the BMW, but has the ability and the history at East Lake (win, two other top 10s in seven starts) to make plenty of noise in the finale.

Wild card: Nick Watney

Aren't many outside the top 50 in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings who made it to Atlanta, but here's one – and he happens to be coming in on a roll.

Last week: Jim Furyk ($544,000); Chris Stroud ($19,253)

Season-long total: $10,772,465

• • •

Lance Ringler, senior writer

Favorite: Tiger Woods

When there is no clear-cut favorite, go with the favorite.

Wild card: Roberto Castro

Former Georgia Tech golfer is familiar with the area and has come on strong late in the season, and he should be comfortable this week at East Lake. Plus his form is good, with top 25s in all three playoff events and a solid showing at the PGA Championship in August.

Last week: Tiger Woods ($176,000); Kevin Chappell ($17,120)

Season-long total: $12,567,646

• • •

Nick Masuda, digital director

Favorite: Steve Stricker

Here's a prediction for you: Tiger Woods and Steve Stricker will be standing next to each other at the end of Sunday. One holding the Tour Championship trophy (Stricker) and one holding the FedEx Cup trophy (Woods). Tiger will turn to Stricker and give him a big hug for the putting tips. #Besties

Wild card: Nick Watney

Change of coach has seemed to do him some good. Was probably the best player on Sunday at BMW, just ran out of holes to pull away.

Last week: Justin Rose ($42,267); Scott Piercy ($16,080)

Season-long total: $10,956,948
