JJ Spaun showed both the potential and the dangers of the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup playoffs last week, and he now has major work to do at the 2022 BMW Championship. Spaun held a one-shot lead heading into Sunday, with 2,000 points and a guaranteed place in the Tour Championship just 18 holes away. Then he shot 78 in the final round to drop to a tie for 42nd. Now he’s the man on the bubble, 30th in the FedEx Cup standings, which would make him the final player in the PGA Tour Finals at East Lake next week. But Will Zalatoris and Sepp Straka also showed the power of a high finish, as Zalatoris beat Straka in the playoffs to move to the top of the FedEx Cup standings. Straka jumped from 35th to eighth. A missed cut dropped Scottie Scheffler behind Zalatoris, and Rory McIlory also made it home early, but they remain among BMW Championship favorites.

McIlroy is the 10-1 favorite in Caesars Sportsbook’s latest BMW Championship odds. Jon Rahm (12-1) is next, followed by a slew of golfers at 14-1. Zalatoris, Scheffler and reigning FedEx Cup champion Patrick Cantlay are in that group. Straka is priced at 125-1, while Spaun is and even more at 200-1 in the 2022 BMW Championship champ

Should you stick with familiar players and use players like Scheffler and Zalatoris as bases for BMW Championship Fantasy 2022 golf picks? Or can another surprise like Straka or Spaun jump into the mix and give you a better chance of winning if you choose them? Before making a fantasy golf ranking or placing bets on the 2022 BMW Championship, you need to see the fantasy golf projections from SportsLine fantasy expert Riley Gates.

Gates is a staff writer for 247Sports and has covered a range of sports for almost six years. He has been following golf closely for much longer and has an in-depth knowledge of the sport. He also knows what it takes to win, on the course and in fantasy sports.

Gates had another good week of picks at FedEx St. Jude Championship last week, with all of his flights for the week making the weekend and JT Poston ($7,300 at DraftKings) posting a top 20. He also supported Tony Finau (T-5) and Sungjae Im (12th), so everyone who followed him had success with their Fantasy picks.

Gates has been on a roll this season. He won the Open Championship, with champion Cameron Smith among his outright winners despite many pundits writing off the Australian. For the John Deere Classic, Gates has identified 40-1 Longshot Poston as a potential winner ahead of his second tour victory.

And in Travelers, it was all over Sahith Theegala, who was priced at just $7,300 at DraftKings and finished second. Anyone who took Gates’ advice cashed in on their fantasy golf picks.

Now Gates has ranked his top golfers for the 2022 BMW Championship, and you’ll really want to see what he has to say. You can only see his fantasy golf rankings and BMW championship picks on SportsLine.

2022 BMW Championship Fantasy Golf Experts’ Choice

Finau continued to impress at the St. Jude Championship, and Gates is on him again this week for the BMW. Despite back-to-back wins and a top-five finish in Memphis, the 32-year-old remains under $10,000 at DraftKings. “If you don’t have Finau on your card at this point, what do you do?” says the expert. Finau is playing at his absolute best and he had a ton of playoff success last year. He won the Northern Trust and was in the top 15 in all three events.

On the other hand, Thomas isn’t playing near his peak, and the Expert makes him disappear. “I don’t really see a reason to support Thomas right now,” Gates said. The 29-year-old hasn’t been the same since winning the PGA at the end of May, posting as many missed cuts (two) as top 20s in the six events that followed. Thomas has shot 70 or more in seven of his last 10 laps, he’s also crazy with his driver (171st in accuracy), and that will be a problem in Wilmington. You can see who else to support and disappear here.
