Fantasy picks for this week:

FedEx Cup Playoffs week 3

Dustin Johnson with the BMW Championship trophy in 2010 at Cog Hill

USA 1: Dustin Johnson – The US Open champion is 3rd in the FedEx Cup and finished in a tie for eighth last week. He’s looking to win the FedEx Cup for the first time and has a great chance to do so. Also won the BMW Championship in 2010.

USA 2: Patrick Reed – The Texan won The Barclays and was in with a shout at the Deutsche Bank but doubled the 10th hole in the final round. He leads the FedEx Cup and has 11 top-10 finishes this season.

FedEx Cup playoffs week 3

GB: Paul Casey – The Englishman will be ruing his Deutsche Bank Championship final round of two over par which allowed Rory McIlroy to overtake him. Level par would have been enough for a playoff. Anyway, he put together three excellent 65s last week so he’s clearly in great form.

Ireland: Rory McIlroy – The Ulsterman won at TPC Boston and then Crooked Stick in the 2012 Playoffs, could history repeat itself? He has regained his putting stroke after seeing Phil Kenyon and his ball striking remains imperious. After his Deutsche Bank victory he stated just how much he wanted to win the FedEx Cup and he is peaking just at the right time, McIlroy will score you some points this week.

Rest of Europe: Thomas Pieters – The Belgian is on a great run of form, finishing fourth in the Olympics, second in the Czech Masters and then first at Made in Denmark. Since then he’s been selected for the Ryder Cup team and will do very well this week if he keeps up his form.

FedEx Cup Playoffs week 3

Australasia: Jason Day – The world number one may be pacing himself for the Tour Championship. He’s been struggling with the driver but his scrambling and putting has been on point. Since finishing as runner-up at the USPGA Championship he’s finished T4th and T15th. He hasn’t missed a cut or finished outside the top 27 since January.
