Wyndham Championship 2022 Fantasy golf picks, power rankings: Top PGA expert says back Corey Conners this week

Most of the PGA Tour’s top players are off this week, but many golfers have critical work to do at the 2022 Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina. The event kicks off Thursday at Sedgefield Country Club, and the 2022 Wyndham Championship course features just four of the top 25 golfers in the world. Several players have a chance to break into the top 125 (or fall), and the top players will advance to the FedEx St. Jude Championship for next week’s playoff opener. Bubble players include 2011 Wyndham Champion Webb Simpson (117th) and fan favorites Rickie Fowler (123rd) and Cameron Champ (130th). The highest ranked players on the pitch are Will Zalatoris (14th), Billy Horschel (15th), Sungjae Im (21st) and Shane Lowry (24th). Kevin Kisner, who won a six-man PGA Tour playoff last season, is back to defend his title.

Five golfers are 20-1 or less in Caesars Sportsbook’s latest 2022 Wyndham Championship odds, led by co-favorites Zalatoris (16-1), Lowry (16-1) and Im (16-1). Simpson, who has nine top-10 finishes from 13 tries at Sedgefield, is rated 18-1, just ahead of Horschel (20-1) in the 2022 Wyndham Championship field.

Are top players like Zalatoris, Simpson and Lowry worth the price you’d have to pay to have them pegged for your Wyndham Championship Fantasy 2022 golf picks? Or stocking up on players $9,000 or less like Harold Varner and 2016 Wyndham champ If Woo Kim would better set you up for success? Before making a fantasy golf ranking or placing bets on the 2022 Wyndham Championship, you need to see fantasy golf projections and picks 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.

Ahead of last week’s Rocket Mortgage Championship, Gates touted Cameron Champ as one of his fantastic golfers. Champ was priced at just $7,600 at DraftKings and walked away with a top 20. The expert also had Will Zalatoris (T-20) and Max Homa (T-24) as valid options for your fantasy picks and backed Patrick Cantlay as the absolute winner. The defending FedEx Cup champion couldn’t keep up with winner Tony Finau and finished tied for second, but anyone who took Gates’ advice likely had success with their fantasy golf picks.

Gates won the Open Championship, with champion Cameron Smith among his outright winners despite many pundits writing off the Australian. And ahead of last week’s 3M Open, the pundit touted Emiliano Grillo as one of his best longshots and also backed Sungjae Im despite his terrible recent run.

Grillo was priced at just $7,600 on DraftKings, while Im was listed at 18-1 in Caesars Sportsbook odds. They finished tied for second place, and the Fantasy players who picked Grillo and the punters who backed Im for a solid finish cashed in hugely.

Gates has crushed his golf picks all season. For the John Deere Classic, Gates has identified 40-1 longshot JT Poston as the potential winner ahead of his second tour win. In Travelers, it was all over Sahith Theegala, which was priced at just $7,300 at DraftKings and finished second.

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

2022 Wyndham Championship Fantasy golf Experts’ Choice

One player Gates is backing for Fantasy Players this week is Corey Conners, who is priced at $9,600 at DraftKings and 28-1 in Caesars odds. The 30-year-old is one of the highest-ranked players in the field at No. 31, and his recent performance will have many players overlooking him. His last lap was a 67 at St. Andrews to finish T-28, and he has 10 top-25 finishes in 21 events this season. Conners is 21st on the circuit in scoring average (70.01).

On the other hand, Gates sees no reason to back Henley, who goes for $9,800 at DraftKings and is 22-1 at Caesars. “I really don’t understand the odds here, to be honest,” the expert said. Henley has only three top-10 finishes this season, and while one of those was last week, the other two were in November and January. He also squandered a Sunday lead here in spectacular fashion last year, bogging four holes on the back nine to miss the playoffs. You can see who else to support here.

How to Build Your 2022 Wyndham Championship Fantasy Golf Ranking

For the 2022 Wyndham Championship, Gates is touting a player for fantasy rosters that costs around $7,500 at DraftKings. This golfer has regained his form after taking some time off. His recent struggles will scare a lot of people, but Gates uses that to his advantage for his Wyndham Championship Fantasy picks.
