Northern Trust Open - Fantasy

With the preview and the power rankings for the Northern Trust Open behind us, it's time to go on record with some games this week. I'll dive right in.

  • A-List - Bill Haas starting with Phil Mickelson on the bench. I wanted to balance my tee times and plug Sergio in for Mickelson, but there's just too good of a chance that Mickelson could win and I want to gobble up the 20  bonus points if it starts to look that way.
  • B-List - Starting Jimmy Walker and Keegan Bradley with Aaron Baddeley and Luke Donald hanging out on the bench.
  • C-List - Kevin Stadler starting with Charl Schwartzel on the bench.
Expect to see Donald and Schwartzel plugged into the Friday lineup.

Golf Channel:
  • Group 1 - I'm taking Keegan. I love him on tough courses and this could be his week.
  • Group 2 - Jimmy Walker jumps off the page here.
  • Group 3 - A little risky given his form, but J.B. Holmes feasts on Riviera and this isn't the first time his form has lacked entering the week.
  • Group 4 - Lucas Glover is 3/3 in making cuts this year, ranks fifth in total driving and 18th in ball-striking on a course where shaping shots, being long and finding fairways and greens are important.


For starters, props to the Chili Dippers for finishing third in the 29 man feature game and KYech for cashing in three different games this week. Nice job guys!

As for our 6-man feature, KYech took home the trophy by essentially going against the Dustin Johnson / Phil Mickelson grain that the rest of us chased. Using those picks on Snedeker and Mahan won the game. My RotoRyan team took second thanks to James Hahn coming in third and Richard H. Lee nabbing a T12.

PGA TOUR game:

We currently have 42 players in the game. The top five are as follows:
  • Team Tiger II - 693 (FedExCup Points
  • O'Sullivan's Tribe (wish I could claim this as my team)- 571
  • Bushleaguers - 564
  • the horsetheives - 564
  • Swinging for the Sixties - 559
Since we are one week in, feel free to join in and play with us. It's free and you can find the registration on PGATOUR.com. Our league name is The Golf Aficionado and the password is Rotoryan. A late add that decided to spot us a week by taking a goose egg in week one is Rotoworld Rob. Word is, he's pretty good at this fantasy stuff, so the other 41 of us may be glad he gave us a head start.

We will be back with one-and-done picks tomorrow, and any other necessary info.

Best of luck to all!
