2018 BMW Championship rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Bryson DeChambeau -- These playoffs have been the confirmation of a new superstar in golf. He's quirky, and he wins.

2. Justin Rose -- Rose had a chance to win the Dell Technologies and get to No. 1 in the world for the first time. He came up shy against DeChambeau. He won here in the Quicken Loans National.

3. Tony Finau -- Runner-up and T-4 in the playoffs. Finau has a Tour-leading number of top-10 finishes this season.

4. Brooks Koepka -- Koepka has gone T-8 and T-12 in the playoffs so far, and that's a solid continued run for a guy having a year he's enjoyed.

5. Dustin Johnson -- Johnson has gone T-11 and T-7 in the playoffs, slightly better than Koepka. He's just good for it pretty much every week.

6. Justin Thomas -- JT is rock solid, and he seems to like places with tree-lined fairways that play a little tighter.

7. Cameron Smith -- The Aussie has notched a pair of third-place finishes in the first two playoff events, showing some of the promise he has exhibited different times the last couple of years.

8. Rafa Cabrera Bello -- The T-60 at The Northern Trust aside, RCB has been in the top 17 in four of his last five starts. He's playing hot and should get on the Ryder Cup team -- or at least get a serious look.

9. Jordan Spieth -- Spieth isn't finishing tournaments, but he's getting so darn close. The putter has been fixed for a while. Now it's avoiding the bad hole or two to get close.

10. Phil Mickelson -- Mickelson closed with 63 at TPC Boston, notching his lowest round of the year. It's almost like something he clicked ($9 million match with Tiger) and he's locked back in.

My primary DraftKings lineup

  1. Tony Finau - $9,500
  2. Jordan Spieth - $9,400
  3. Phil Mickelson - $8,400
  4. Rafa Cabrera-Bello - $8,300
  5. Cameron Smith - $7,800
  6. Ryan Palmer - $6,600
