Webb Simpson is the highest-ranked player in this week's field
The RSM Classic is set for Nov. 19-22 at the Sea Island Resort Seaside Course in Sea Island, Georgia. That means it's time to pick your optimal DraftKings fantasy golf lineup. Fortunately, our fantasy golf experts are ready to help.
Here's what our best RSM Classic lineup looks like in this week's golfer predictions:
Webb Simpson ($11,200)
Call him Mr. Consistency. In the last 16 months, Simpson has two wins, three seconds, two thirds and 13 total top-10 finishes. His worst finish in his last seven starts? A T17. He makes the short drive down from Augusta fresh off a top 10 at The Masters. Plus, he's a course horse, with a solo second last year and a solo third in 2018. He's worth the price tag this week.
Brian Harman ($8,500)
Continuing with the consistency theme, Harman arrives in Sea Island carrying a streak of 11 consecutive cuts made, the 5th-longest active streak on Tour, and while he hasn't done much contending of late, Harman does have four top-30 finishes on the young season. The Savannah native and Sea Island resident will have no problem getting acclimated at a spot where he finished T14 last year.
Justin Rose ($8,400)
It's a little shocking to see the former World No. 1 down in the middle of the fantasy pack, but it's been a struggle for the 2013 U.S. Open champion since losing his perch atop the rankings in February 2019. There have been hopeful signs over the last few months, however — a top 10 at the PGA, a T17 at the ZOZO, a top 25 at The Masters. A return to contention is inevitable; don't miss out while he's relatively cheap.
Charles Howell III ($8,200)
Fully one-third of CH3's career wins have come at the RSM. Okay, so he has only three career victories. But a 2018 RSM title qualifies Howell as a course horse this week. At this point in his career, the 41-year old Howell is a grinder who rarely contends but occasionally pops up on a leaderboard, like he did at the 3M in July with a T3. And he's still a lights-out putter — he's 5th in SG: Putting this season.
Stewart Cink ($7,300)
Cink ranks third in FedExCup points this season, and he's doing it the Stewart Cink way, with flawless iron play — he ranks 6th in GIR. He's a perennial participant at the RSM, with a top 10 at Sea Island as recently as 2016.
Davis Thompson ($6,300)
The world's top-ranked amateur made his first-ever PGA Tour appearance at the RSM last year, and he showed his stuff with a T23. The Georgia Bulldog has a bright future, but for now, he could steal you some fantasy cred.
