2019 John Deere Classic expert picks, rankings, fantasy golf and betting tips

Looking for 2019 John Deere Classic picks, either for betting or fantasy golf games like DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo, Golf Channel or the PGA Tour?

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

The PGA Tour's Sixth Major hits this week, at the Quad Cities hosts the John Deere Classic. We don't have a top-50 player in the field, not even one seeking out a last-minute Open spot. But, we do have plenty of young guns hungry for a win and that last spot at Royal Portrush.

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

2019 John Deere Classic rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Matthew Wolff: He's still in the field as of print time, though that's certainly subject to change. The 3M winner was impressive throughout the weekend, and that eagle on 18 was gutsy.

2. Viktor Hovland: Hovland has three top-13 finishes in his last four starts on the PGA Tour. He finishes well, and that makes him dangerous in go-low tournaments.

3. Collin Morikawa: Morikawa seems more like Hovland out the gate. He plays really well and has been consistent like Hovland, but he now has the edge of an early battle for a PGA Tour title.

4. Joaquin Niemann: A T-23 in the Twin Cities is a little dip for him after consecutive T-5 finishes, but he's back on a good roll.

5. Kevin Streelman: Contended to win here in the past, and he's enjoying a solid run since Memorial.

6. Sungjae Im: Im should be worn out at this point, but he's been in the top 21 of his last four starts. Grinder!

7. Wyndham Clark: Clark played well enough on Sunday at the 3M to hang in there, but his emotional maturity needs some work to win a tournament.

8. Jason Kokrak: Krak's been on a great run the last year plus, missing just a pair of cuts. In an event where we're looking for warm bodies to play the weekend, here's one.

9. Sam Burns: It's been a weird year for Burns, who's dealt with some injury issues. But he seems back on the right track now, especially with a T-7 in the 3M.

10. Chad Campbell: If we're thinking of a horse-for-course play, we think Zach Johnson and Chad Campbell. I just need to mention both here. Their seasons have stunk though.
