Fantasy golf expert picks: 2018 BMW Championship

Need help with your fantasy golf lineups for this week’s BMW Championship at Aronimink? Our fantasy golf experts are here to help.

From picks to win to DraftKings bargains to players to avoid, here are some options for you to consider:

Brentley Romine

  • Projected champion: Justin Rose. Second last week and a past winner at Aronimink. I know the course has been restored, but past experience should still give Rose a slight edge to add to his strong tee-to-green, long-iron and now putting game.
  • Also like: Dustin Johnson and Patrick Cantlay. DJ is like one of those RB1’s that you don’t bench in fantasy football. If you can afford him, he’s the safest bet week in and week out. Cantlay is on a tear and an elite ballstriker.
  • Sleeper: Emiliano Grillo. Turned things around last week and brings a strong all-around game to the table when he tees it up.
  • DraftKings bargain: Peter Uihlein ($6,800). Birdies his final three holes at TPC Boston to make it inside the top 70. That’s called being clutch. I could easily see another spirited Uihlein charge this week.
  • Fade: Patrick Reed. The only thing going for him this week is he has a good parking spot.

Dan Kilbridge

  • Projected champion: Bryson DeChambeau. Why not? Two straight wins and he was still grinding away on the putting green Wednesday afternoon in Philadelphia. Not ready to hop off this train yet.
  • Also like: Marc Leishman. He’s been solid ever since a rough first round at the Northern Trust. Won this event last year at a different course, but we like his chances to make some noise again in Philadelphia.
  • Sleeper: Emiliano Grillo. Didn’t have a great finish Monday in Boston but still finished T-7. That is his sixth top-10 of the season. Another one of those would provide great value here.
  • DraftKings bargain: Adam Hadwin ($7,000). Two straight top-25 finishes and knows he needs to have a big time week in order to march on to East Lake.
  • Fade: Jason Day. Had been playing pretty steadily until a missed cut at the Dell Technologies, so we’re gonna say this is a good week to back off.

Kevin Casey

  • Projected champion: Justin Thomas. Has oddly fallen under the radar of late despite winning last month and following with a pair of top 10s. His T-24 at TPC Boston was nothing special but did include a final-round 65. Seems like the perfect time for another big week.
  • Also like: Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy. Koepka continued his fine form at TPC Boston with a T-12. McIlroy kind of had a quiet T-12, and he appeared to be a player ready to burst into high form soon.
  • Sleeper: Emiliano Grillo. A strong week at TPC Boston netted a top 10. I think he’ll like this course, too.
  • DraftKings bargain: Beau Hossler ($6,900). He’s probably going to play well over the first 36 at least, which means a high floor. Hossler continues to struggle on weekends, but he captures magic there ever now and then. If you get him on one of those weeks, the sky’s the limit.
  • Fade: Rickie Fowler. Even with a lot of preparation, still think he’ll come in a bit rusty after taking a couple of weeks off due to injury.
