2017 Dell Technologies Championship expert picks, rankings, fantasy golf and betting tips


Looking for 2017 Dell Technologies Championship picks, either for betting or fantasy golf games like DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo, Golf Channel or the PGA Tour?

We have your 2017 Dell Technologies Championship rankings and expert picks, as we do each week of the PGA Tour season.

The playoffs are here! Great start last week at The Northern Trust, and now we have basically the top five in the world vying for the FedEx Cup and Player of the Year honors. We move to TPC Boston (an hour away from Boston) for the Dell Technologies Championship, formerly the Deutsche Bank Championship. So who steps forward this week?

For those new to our weekly picks, we offer our top 10 players for free. GNN Plus members get additional analysis and research otherwise hidden to the general public, and that's in addition to access to a searchable database of PGA Tour results from 2011-present, top-15 PGA Tour trends and season-long DraftKings salary trends.


2017 Dell Technologies Championship rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Dustin Johnson - DJ is back, apparently. He made a great charge on Sunday to bookend an impressive opening round to snag The Northern Trust in a playoff over Spieth. Top-eight finishes in this tournament the last two years.

2. Rickie Fowler - Fowler is a past winner here, taking down Henrik Stenson in a great 2015 battle. Playing beautifully all year and has an affinity for this course. Close to a mortal lock.

3. Jason Day - Perhaps I'm elevating Day a little too much this week, but the guy has the most consistent record at TPC Boston of anyone in the field. He's on the come.

4. Jordan Spieth - Spieth's TPC Boston record is not wowing in any way. Then again, I wasn't totally sold he would nearly win at Glen Oaks. His improved ballstriking should help him here.

5. Paul Casey - Casey could easily slot anywhere 2-5 on this ranking because of how well he has played since June, really. Great top-five to open the playoffs.

6. Justin Thomas - JT finished T-6 at Glen Oaks, and he never made a headline really. He's in elite company now, so good finishes don't mean as much coverage. Downside here? No good finishes to speak of as precedent.

7. Louis Oosthuizen - King Louis loves this venue, with three top-15 finishes in the last six years, and he's been stellar in August and, hopefully, through September.

8. Patrick Reed - Reed has been on a tear since the end of April, with just three finishes outside the top 25. Top-five finishes here the last two years have to excite you as a fantasy owner.

9. Rory McIlroy - We're going to keep putting McRib out there with heavy qualifiers just because he loves TPC Boston and, in concept, should demolish golf courses where good driving is key.

10. Kevin Chappell - You could go Adam Scott here based on course history, but I'm going with Chappell. Good form on this course, and he's playing to lock up a Presidents Cup spot, either automatically or as a pick.

My DraftKings lineup for this week:

  1. Rickie Fowler - $9,700
  2. Louis Oosthuizen - $9,100
  3. Kevin Chappell - $8,600
  4. Ryan Moore - $7,700
  5. Daniel Berger - $7,600
  6. Patrick Cantlay - $7,200
