2015 Deutsche Bank Championship fantasy golf picks, betting tips

Welcome back to Golf News Net's weekly fantasy golf picks, presented by DraftKings.com. Each week of the PGA Tour season, we'll present our top picks for that week's tournament and make recommendations for DraftKings' one-week fantasy leagues.

The first cut of the FedEx Cup playoffs has been made, and we're down to 100 players for the second leg at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Jason Day made it three wins in his last four PGA Tour starts with a six-shot triumph at The Barclays, and he's the betting favorite this week. Jordan Spieth looks to recapture No. 1 in the world and the FedEx Cup standings after a missed cut at Plainfield Country Club. Rory McIlroy makes his 2015 playoffs debut at TPC Boston.

This is a tournament where scoring is low and there's little room for a round worse than the high 60s to have a chance to win.

Of course, with a chalk set of picks last week, we had Jason Day. Remember, this event starts on Friday and ends on Monday, so you have an extra day to get your picks in for your fantasy games.

On to the picks!

1. Jason Day -- How can Day not be the No. 1 pick? He's won three of four and is 73 under par in his last five starts. His three wins and the T-4 at the Open Championship came on courses where you had to be near 20 under to win. That's TPC Boston.

2. Henrik Stenson -- When Henrik Stenson is on, you've gotta have him in your lineup. He played very well at Plainfield Country Club, locking up solo second place. He's a former winner at TPC Boston, back in 2013, so it's a good combination to have him back in your lineups.

3. Jordan Spieth -- Every once in a while, Spieth crumbles under pressure. He did at The Barclays, where he had to finish in the top 14 to hang on to No. 1. He's not a fan of Donald Ross courses, which is something to remember for the future. But he should bounce back well this week, a place he finished T-4 in 2013.

4. Dustin Johnson -- Johnson finished T-9 at Plainfield with power and not much else in the bag. He has two fourth-place finishes at TPC Boston in five playoff starts in the event. He hasn't missed a cut. Again, he may not be a great pick to win, but will load up on points.

5. Rory McIlroy -- McIlroy would likely rank third or fourth on our ranking had he been playing throughout the summer. Since McIlroy has taken the last two weeks off after a 17th-place finish at the PGA, we have to account for some ring rust. He was a winner here in 2012.

6. Justin Rose -- Had Rose not opened with 77 at Plainfield, his T-16 finish would have been a whole lot better. We're going based on his overall tee-to-green game since July, which has been world-class.

7. Zach Johnson -- Johnson finished T-4 at The Barclays, and he's got a good record at TPC Boston with three top-20 finishes in the FedEx Cup era. He's never missed a cut here in the playoffs.

8. Bubba Watson -- Watson finished solo third at The Barclays, so why not have him higher? His record at TPC Boston is pedestrian. He has one top-20 finish in this event in the playoffs. He's missed the cut twice.

9. Jim Furyk -- The Grinder was grinding at Plainfield and earned a T-11 finish. He's worth a look again this week at the DBC, where he has five top-25 finishes in the event, including three top-10 efforts.

10. Brooks Kopeka -- Koepka missed the cut badly at Plainfield, where he played some wild, up-and-down golf, balancing eagles with the ugly double-or-worse. This course should suit his eye and, Barclays aside, his golf has been brilliant.

My DraftKings team for this week:

1. Henrik Stenson -- $10,500
2. Zach Johnson -- $9,300
3. Brooks Koepka -- $8,700
4. Robert Streb -- $8,000
5. Carl Pettersson -- $6,900
6. Jerry Kelly -- $6,300
