Excuse the golf world as it recovers from its U.S. Open hangover, but it will need to shake off the cobwebs quickly as an impressive field will tee it up this week at the Travelers Championship.

Justin Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open champ, is the biggest name in a field that includes the likes of Lee Westwood, Jason Dufner, Ian Poulter and Webb Simpson.

It is Hunter Mahan that a pair of our fantasy panelists believe will recover from his late fall down the leaderboard at Merion to capture his second Travelers title, while pals Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson are also registering as players to watch this wee.

The competition for the top spot in our fantasy rankings is getting closer, as Jim McCabe has moved within $100,000 of Lance Ringler after his pick of Scott Stallings at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, surpassing Nick Masuda.

Here is a look at this week's picks:

Rank Winner Wild Card Last Week
Rude Hunter Mahan

Easy choice. Just contended at U.S. Open, where he tied for fourth. And he is something of Mr. Hartford, for he has a victory, two seconds and a fourth at Travelers.

John Rollins

Another pick because of current form and past results at the venue. Rollins has tied for fourth at Colonial and finished sixth at Memphis in his last two starts. Plus, he tied for second at Travelers in 2011 and for fourth last year.

Winner: Brandt Snedeker (MC); wild card: Robert Karlsson ($21,660). 2013 total: $6,629,867

McCabe Rickie Fowler

Like his form at last week's U.S. Open, where he finished T-10, his first top 10 in a major since the 2011 Open Championship. Should have good vibes here, too; he was T-13 at TPC River Highlands in 2010.

Padraig Harrington

Looked very comfortable a year ago here, breaking par each day and finishing joint 11th. Comes in on the heels of a decent U.S. Open (T-21) and a strong FedEx St. Jude Classic (T-10) performance.

Winner: Freddie Jacobson (MC) ; wild card: Scott Stallings ($501,600). 2013 total: $7,439,910

Ringler Hunter Mahan

Past champion here and was in the hunt deep into Sunday last week at the U.S. Open.

Charley Hoffman

Trending in the right direction with four top 10s in 2013. Place second at TPC River Highlands last year.

Winner: Freddie Jacobson (MC); wild card: Robert Karlsson ($21,660). 2013 total:$7,564,708

Masuda Bubba Watson

Winner in 2010 here and finished second in 2012. He's due for a win and this feels like the week.

John Rollins

A T-4 here in 2012 and a T-2 in 2011. Seems to love the layout, so I seem to love him for my squad.

Winner: Charles Howell III ($21,660); wild card: Russell Henley ($37,941). 2013 total: $7,066,931
