Looking for 2018 Dell Technologies Championship picks, either for betting or fantasy golf games like DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo, Golf Channel or the PGA Tour?
We have your 2018 Dell Technologies Championship rankings and expert picks, as we do each week of the PGA Tour season.
The PGA Tour playoffs continue this week with the top 100 eligible for the Dell Technologies Championship. (Rickie Fowler is among those not playing.) TPC Boston hosts for the final time before getting merged into the rotation for The Northern Trust, as the FedEx Cup playoffs will go from four to three events near year and beyond.
Also, a quick heads up that we’ll return to a normal schedule next week. I’ve enjoyed my first vacation in 8 years the last two weeks, and I’m ready to get back to regular life.
For those new to our weekly picks, we offer our top 10 players for free.
Want more? You have two options:

2018 Dell Technologies Championship rankings: Top 10 picks
1. Justin Thomas — JT is the defending champion here, and he’s been in the top eight in his last two starts, following a win at Firestone.
2. Dustin Johnson — Johnson was in it here two years ago, and he has a good record in the playoffs. His third round at The Northern Trust locked him out of a potential win.
3. Brooks Koepka — Koepka gave a good run at Ridgewood last week, and he dominated played his brand of golf. That brand should work at TPC Boston, too.
4. Jason Day — Jason Day absolutely thrives in this championship, and he loves TPC Boston. Book him.
5. Tony Finau — Runner-up last week at The Northern Trust, Finau just HAS to be a Ryder Cup pick. A modest week at TPC Boston sews it up.
6. Justin Rose — Rose pretty much always gets into some kind of playoff run despite never winning in the playoffs themselves. I like that run to continue this year…but maybe a win.
7. Bryson DeChambeau — DeChambeau won last week, and I typically don’t rank guys who win too highly the next week unless it’s a horse-for-course situation. But Bryson is a freaking genius, and I buy his method of madness.
8. Rory McIlroy — Rory is a two-time winner here, and he’s rested coming off skipping The Northern Trust. If he can’t get back in the cut this week after that, I’m stepping back on him until 2019.
9. Patrick Cantlay — Cantlay, who I admitted have a fantasy bias against, has been remarkably consistent this year and it continued last week in New Jersey.
10. Phil Mickelson — Mickelson seemed rejuvenated last week. Whether it’s joining Twitter, or the potential $9 million PPV payday with Tiger, or what, he cares again while playing on a course he likes.
