2022 Fortinet Championship rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Max Homa: Homa is the defending champion here, and his win a year ago was a bit of a surprise. However, as he continues to develop into a top-20 player, he should be a great pick this week.

2. Hideki Matsuyama: It's hard to see Matsuyama playing this week as much more than an obligation to get ready for the Presidents Cup. He's a class player in this field, though.

3. Cam Davis: The Aussie had a strong finish to his season, and he'll be on the Presidents Cup team. Should be quite confident.

4. Maverick McNealy: Mav almost broke through in this event last year for his first PGA Tour win. He's knocked on the door enough. Walk through this season.

5. Corey Conners: Conners is a guy to like most times out because of his ballstriking, particularly in a middling field like this one.

6. Sahith Theegala: Theegala found a way to the Tour Championship and now has a heck of a year coming his way. The relaxation that comes with two years of guaranteed status should help.

7. Denny McCarthy: This isn't Denny's favorite course, but he has become a player who has learned to make it work even in places that aren't suited to his eye. This could be a big year for him.

8. Chez Reavie: This is a very Chez event, one that could suit him quite nicely given his record on this course.

9. Taylor Pendrith: The Canadian has flaws, but he beats the every-living hell out of the ball. If he keeps straight and makes some putts, he has a chance.

10. Brendan Steele: There aren't many horses for this course that are in the 2022 field, but Brendan Steele won here back-to-back. He also put up some decent -- if sporadic -- results through the summer.
