2019 Barracuda Championship expert picks, rankings, fantasy golf and betting tips

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

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

With the World Golf Championships event unfolding in Memphis, there's an opposite-field event in Reno at the Barracuda Championship. This is the only tournament on the schedule played under the modified Stableford scoring system.

This is a tough week to set a field, much less make picks, but we'll stick with many of the names from last week.

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

2019 Barracuda Championship rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Collin Morikawa: It's a go-low event, and Morikawa has his card. So he's playing to win and get in the playoffs.

2. Denny McCarthy: McCarthy finished T-12 last week and lost a spot in the FedEx Cup ranking. A top-five finish this week makes the Wyndham easy.

3. Martin Kaymer: Kaymer's in the field to secure PGA Tour status, and he's been playing well in Europe.

4. Roberto Castro: Castro continues to perform well against weaker fields, and this week should be no different.

5. Sepp Straka: Straka seemed to figure out something at the Open in June, and he had a great Sunday in Kentucky.

6. Martin Laird: Laird turned in a good week in Kentucky, and he seems to like events where he can be aggressive.

7. Ryan Palmer: He's playing pretty well. I'm not entirely sure why he's playing this week. But hey, play him.

8. Brendan Steele: It hasn't been a great year for Steele, but he's made four cuts in a row and he likes this course.

9. Sam Saunders: He's posted a couple of OK finishes of late, and he seems to have a specialty at these oppo-field events.

10. Robert Garrigus: Garrigus is a horse-for-course type, with two top-15 finishes here the last four years.
