|Expert||Top Fantasy Pick|
|Rob Doster||Dustin Johnson|
It’s hard to come up with a good counter-argument on why it’s a good idea to invest in Dustin Johnson at the TOUR Championship. Johnson has been smoldering of late, as he’s finished no worse than T2 in any of his last three starts, including a win at The Northern Trust, where he shot 30-under-254. No wonder Rob Doster of Athlon Sports is saying that “It’s clicking right now for the most gifted guy out there.” Johnson is +160 to win the 2020 TOUR Championship.

|Mike McClure||Rory McIlroy|
If you’re a fan of Mike McClure’s model, then you should know that it’s high on Rory McIlroy at the TOUR Championship. McIlroy, who won this tournament at East Lake GC a year ago, will start with a 3-under score. McIlroy (+2500) has always been a strong performer at East Lake GC, having won twice and finished inside the top 10 five times there.
|Rob Bolton||Jon Rahm|
For Rob Bolton of PGATOUR.com, Jon Rahm (+260) is the player to beat at East Lake GC this week. For one, Rahm is oozing with momentum following his win at the BMW Championship, where he scored 66 and 64 in the final two rounds, respectively. Before that, he settled for a T6 at The Northern Trust.

|Ryan Simpson||Justin Thomas|
Thomas, relatively speaking, could be flying under the radar a bit after three consecutive subpar performances. After winning the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude International, Thomas had a T37 at the PGA Championship, T49 at The Northern Trust, and T25 at the BMW Championship. Those are just smokescreens for the more important fact that Thomas (+600) has finished inside the top 7 in all of his four career starts at East Lake GC.
