Looking for 2019 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open picks, either for betting or fantasy golf games like DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo, Golf Channel or the PGA Tour?

We have your 2019 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open rankings and expert picks, as we do each week of the PGA Tour season.

The Safeway Open was a surprise in a lot of ways, with top players often falling by the wayside as the likes of Cameron Champ and Adam Hadwin and Marc Leishman -- great players, just outside of a top-10 consideration -- were the story.

Now we move on to the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas, which will see its best-ever field as the fall schedule takes on even bigger meaning.

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

2019 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Brooks Koepka: I'm expecting big things from Brooks this year. He has another chip to put on his shoulder with not winning the Player of the Year vote from his peers. He's coming for you.

2. Webb Simpson: Simpson ended the season fairly well, and he played great golf in the second half of the season. He is a past winner here and has a good overall record.

3. Patrick Cantlay: Cantlay wasn't much of a factor in the Safeway Open, but he's gone 1-2 here the last two years and is always a threat.

4. Adam Scott: Love Scott coming back to this tournament, with his UNLV roots. Scott finished T-17 at the Safeway, and he's been playing strong golf dating back to July.

5. Bryson DeChambeau: DeChambeau denied Cantlay a repeat last year, and he had a very good first 36 at the Safeway.

6. Patrick Reed: Reed has been off playing in Europe, and he's had a solid August and September. May not be great if the wind kicks up.

7. Collin Morikawa: Scoring a top-10 finish against great competition, which should be a solid boost to start this season.

8. Tony Finau: Finau comes off a T-10 finish in the Dunhill Links in Scotland. My only problem is he could be tired from the nine-time-zone shift.

9. Joaquin Niemann: Niemann is back after a week off, and he should be a solid look this week.

10. Scott Piercy: Piercy is a horse-for-course guy here. He just does well in this event over the years. Gotta like him some.
