We have your 2019 Zurich Classic of New Orleans rankings and expert picks, as we do each week of the PGA Tour season.

This week, we have the lone team event on the PGA Tour schedule, the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Played at TPC Louisiana, this event is in its third year and features half of the world top 50 playing in fourballs and foursomes over four rounds to determine the best duo in the event.

In One and Done, the goal is to find a weaker player with a strong partner. But in fantasy games where you need to pick a team, we're looking for two strong players.

2019 Zurich Classic of New Orleans rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Patrick Reed and Patrick Cantlay -- Love this team because of their strong performance last year, as well impressive run from Cantlay in the last couple of weeks.

2. Jason Day and Adam Scott -- The Aussies should be a formidable team this week, but there's always concerns about Day's health and Scott's putting.

3. Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown -- The rare team to top-15 in both editions of this team event. Kisner is seemingly stuck in the top 25-30, while Scott Brown has showed his usual flashes this year.

4. Sergio Garcia and Tommy Fleetwood -- It's hard to argue with a team like this. Fleetwood did well last year with a different partner, and these Ryder Cup heroes should team nicely.

5. Jon Rahm and Ryan Palmer -- Rahm has been remarkably consistent this year, and Palmer is fighting through a bit of a rut. However, Palmer has showed signs of breaking out of his rut.

6. Bubba Watson and JB Holmes -- Bubba likes this course and won on it as an individual. He's finished well here with both JB and Matt Kuchar.

7. Tony Finau and Kyle Stanley -- Finau and Stanley may be working out of mini-funks, both coming off solid Masters finishes.

8. Brooks Koepka and Chase Koepka -- It's not been a great campaign for Chase, while Brooks is playing this event to basically try to get his brother a PGA Tour card. Tall order, but Brooks Koepka is damn good.

9. Billy Horschel and Scott Piercy -- The defending champions

10. Brian Harman and Patton Kizzire -- These guys cruised at the Shark Shootout in December, played under a similar format. Kizzire is starting to turn things around, and Harman could use another spark.
