2019 Wells Fargo Championship expert picks, rankings, fantasy golf and betting tips

Looking for 2019 Wells Fargo Championship picks, either for betting or fantasy golf games like DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo, Golf Channel or the PGA Tour?

We have your 2019 Wells Fargo Championship rankings and expert picks, as we do each week of the PGA Tour season.

We're back on the solo beat this week, in Charlotte at Quail Hollow Club for the Wells Fargo. For the last decade, this has been the pre-Players tune-up. Now, it's a tune-up for the PGA Championship for a lot of players. And that's fitting since Quail Hollow hosted the 2017 PGA Championship and almost certainly will again (if not a Ryder Cup).

There's a very solid field gathered here, with half of the world top 50 playing. Lots of good choices this week.

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

2019 Wells Fargo Championship rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Rory McIlroy -- Coming off another Masters disappointment, McIlroy comes to a place he loves. That should be good for the soul.

2. Rickie Fowler -- Fowler plays this golf course well. Maybe not as well as some others, but his form is better than those HFCs (horses-for-courses).

3. Jason Day -- Great Masters for Day, but then it didn't look so great at the Zurich Classic with Adam Scott. Put that aside. He's been very solid this year.

4. Phil Mickelson -- The Pebble win kinda overshadows his otherwise mediocre season, but Phil has an excellent track record at Quail Hollow.

5. Justin Rose -- So the approach to slow walk the season leading into the majors didn't pay off at Augusta. That doesn't mean it won't now that we're in the meat of the season.

6. Paul Casey -- Absolute skunker at the Masters. Sad to see for a guy with a great record there. But let's see if this week will inspire him to come out blazing.

7. Sergio Garcia -- Clunker of a Masters, perhaps softened a touch with the nice Zurich Classic finish. This Nobleman has enjoyed a great year overall. (Sensing a trend this week with Masters duds?)

8. Hideki Matsuyama -- I'm almost ready to get back on the Matsuyama train. The consistency has been a plus, and he seems to be working back toward higher finishes as the norm.

9. Tony Finau -- In the last 52 weeks, Tony Finau has missed two cuts. I'll take that every week.

10. Jason Kokrak -- Kokrak is just cashing checks, man. In his last six starts, all but one inside the top 16.

My primary DraftKings lineup

  1. Tony Finau - $9,300
  2. Jason Kokrak - $8,700
  3. Sungjae Im - $8,600
  4. Charles Howell III - $8,400
  5. Joel Dahmen - $7,600
  6. Denny McCarthy - $7,000
