2019 Puerto Rico Open expert picks, rankings, fantasy golf and betting tips

Looking for 2019 Puerto Rico Open picks, either for betting or fantasy golf games like DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo, Golf Channel or the PGA Tour?

We have your 2019 Puerto Rico Open rankings and expert picks, as we do each week of the PGA Tour season.

The PGA Tour has two stops this week: the WGC-Mexico Championship and the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open. The Puerto Rico Open is back after a one-year absence because of Hurricane Maria, and it should be a great week for the US territory to announce to the world they're open for business. I'll be down there this week playing in the Wednesday pro-am, and these opposite-field events are some of my favorite on the calendar.

This is a tough field to handicap because there are no top-50 players, so there's a lot of guesswork.

We don't have DraftKings games for Puerto Rico, but for fantasy games where you do make PR picks, we have 'em here.

For those new to our weekly picks, we offer our top 10 players for free.

2019 Puerto Rico Open rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Rafael Campos -- Campos has a win on the Web.com Tour this season, and this is his home event. He's had very good finishes here in the past.

2. Roberto Castro -- I love Castro because he's a model of consistency in a weak field. He keeps making cuts, and he's sprinkled in some top-25 finishes.

3. Matt Every -- Every has been playing solid, top-15 golf going back and forth between the PGA Tour and the Web.com Tour.

4. Wyndham Clark -- I like how many cuts Clark has made with full status this year, and he's handled the West Coast Swing pretty well.

5. Scott Brown -- Brown is a past winner here, a total horse-for-course, and he's actually playing pretty well at the moment. T-9 at Torrey Pines and a good Riviera finish.

6. Matt Jones -- Coming off a T-13 at Torrey, Jones is a horse-for-course pick here.

7. Graeme McDowell -- McDowell has made limited PGA Tour starts this season (2), but both finishes have been in the top 18.

8. Daniel Berger -- Berger tends to beat up on weaker fields and easier courses. Coco Beach isn't easy, but it's get-able, and that's good news for Berger.

9. Adam Svensson -- The Canadian has acquitted himself pretty well during the West Coast Swing, and he's showed plenty of potential.

10. Charl Schwartzel -- A late entry, Schwartzel is looking for something I think he can find in Puerto Rico.
