2019 Charles Schwab Challenge expert picks, rankings, fantasy golf and betting tips

Looking for 2019 Charles Schwab Challenge picks, either for betting or fantasy golf games like DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo, Golf Channel or the PGA Tour?

We have your 2019 Charles Schwab Challenge rankings and expert picks, as we do each week of the PGA Tour season.

We are at Colonial Country Club this week, completing the Texas Two-Step that has now been separated by the PGA Championship. The Ft. Worth event will welcome just about 40 percent of the world top 50, including defending champion Justin Rose. This is certainly a horse-for-course event, with shorter players having one of their best chances of the year to win.

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

2019 Charles Schwab Challenge rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Justin Rose -- Rose was strong at Quail Hollow, and he was solid at Bethpage until an unfortunate Sunday. The defending champion can repeat.

2. Rickie Fowler -- Fowler returns here after a T-14 finish last year. Never really in it at Bethpage, Fowler's short game should be more handy here.

3. Xander Schauffele -- Tough Sunday for the X Man, who, to that point, had handled Bethpage expertly. This is a prestigious event on a tough course, so I'm in on Xander.

4. Jon Rahm -- Let's put Bethpage aside for another day. We know that kind of setup isn't his jam. But with a runner-up and a fifth-place effort in the last two years at Colonial, gotta like Rahm.

5. Paul Casey -- The post-Masters starts have been solid enough. Casey was T-10 here in 2017, so he's demonstrated taking a shining to the course.

6. Jordan Spieth -- Maybe it's too fast too soon. Maybe Spieth didn't play poorly on Sunday at Bethpage because he had no prayer. But the putter came alive in a big way, and that could be good for Colonial.

7. Kevin Kisner -- Kisner has been up and down of late, but most of the year he's been in the 25th-place range. That's not bad, and it'll likely improve at Colonial, a place he loves.

8. Joel Dahmen -- Dahmen learned something in Charlotte, and there's no reason to believe he'll take a step back after getting so close to breaking through at Wells Fargo.

9. Rory Sabbatini -- The Slovakian Stud has been playing great golf in his last three starts. Colonial lines up with him.

10. Matthew Fitzpatrick -- Consider this a hunch pick. I think Fitz is ready to make a move on the PGA Tour at another invitational. He was runner-up at Bay Hill.

My primary DraftKings lineup

  1. Paul Casey - $9,300
  2. Kevin Kisner - $9,200
  3. Rory Sabbatini - $8,800

  5. Danny Lee - $7,300
  6. Matt Every - $7,200
