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

The Donald Ross portion of the PGA schedule continues this week at the 2022 Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club. The Ross-designed course in Greensboro, NC has hosted the event since 2008, and the average winning score over that span is 19 under par. Kevin Kisner and five others went 15 under last year as weather disruptions played a minor role. The previous five events went at least 21 under par. The 2021 playoff tied the tour record for most players in sudden-death competition, and Kisner won with a birdie on the second extra hole. Four of the world’s top 25 players are in the 2022 Wyndham Championship field, led by No. 14 Will Zalatoris and including Billy Horschel (15th), Sungjae Im (21st) and Shane Lowry (24th).

This is the final event of the PGA Tour’s regular season, with the playoffs starting next week at TPC Southwind in Memphis. Caesars Sportsbook lists Zalatoris (16-1), Lowry (16-1) and Im (16-1) as the favorites in its latest 2022 Wyndham Championship odds. Webb Simpson, who won this event in 2011 and has nine top-10 finishes in 13 tries at Sedgefield, is right behind at 18-1. Horschel is priced at 20-1, and Russell Henley, the 54-hole leader in 2021 before collapsing on Sunday, is 22-1 in the Wyndham Championship 2022 field.

Will one of the stars of the show like Zalatoris ($10,900 at DraftKings) or Lowry ($10,600) be worth the price to anchor your 2022 Wyndham Championship Fantasy golf picks? Or would stocking up on cheaper options like Harold Varner ($9,000) or 2016 Wyndham champ Si Woo Kim ($8,800) set you up to win? Before you make any Fantasy golf rankings or place any bets on the 2022 Wyndham Championship, you need to see the Fantasy golf projections and picks from SportsLine fantasy expert Riley Gates.

Gates is a writer for 247Sports and has covered a range of sports for nearly six years. He has followed golf closely for much longer and has a profound knowledge of the sport. He also knows what it takes to win, on the course and in fantasy sports.

Before last week’s Rocket Mortgage Championship, Gates touted Cameron Champ as one of his bargain Fantasy golfers. Champ was priced at just $7,600 at DraftKings and came away with a top-20 finish. The expert also had Will Zalatoris (T-20) and Max Homa (T-24) as worthy options for your fantasy picks and backed Patrick Cantlay as an outright winner. The reigning FedEx Cup champ couldn’t keep up with winner Tony Finau and tied for a second, but anyone who followed Gates’ advice likely had success with their Fantasy golf picks.

Gates nailed the Open Championship, going with champion Cameron Smith among his outright winners despite many experts writing off the Australian. And before last week’s 3M Open, the expert touted Emiliano Grillo as one of his top longshots of him and also backed Sungjae Im despite his terrible recent run of him.

Cricket was priced at just $7,600 on DraftKings, while Im was listed at 18-1 in Caesars Sportsbook’s odds. They finished in a tie for a second, and Fantasy players who picked Grillo and bettors who backed Im for a solid finish cashed in huge.

Gates has been crushing his golf picks all season. For the John Deere Classic, Gates pegged 40-1 longshot JT Poston as a potential winner before his second tour win. At the Travelers, he was all over Sahith Theegala, who was priced at just $7,300 at DraftKings and finished as a runner-up.

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 at SportsLine.

2022 Wyndham Championship Fantasy golf expert picks

One player Gates is confidently backing this week is Corey Conners (28-1). The Canadian will be overlooked because of recent results, but his full body of work and rankings among the best in the field make him a great target. The 30-year-old missed the US Open cut and was T-28 at the Open Championship in his most recent outing. But his final round of him at St. Andrews was a 67, and now he is rested. The 31st-ranked player in the world should be worth the price this week.

On the other hand, the expert isn’t sold on Henley and is fading the 33-year-old this week. Sure, Henley led at the turn on Sunday last year, but a collapse that included four bogeys is likely to be on his mind. He also hasn’t done much of note since then. His finish last week was just his third top-10 of the season (and first since March), and he went steadily downhill at Sedgefield last year (62-64-69-71). “I just don’t see any reason to back Henley here,” Gates says. You can see who else to back here.

How to set your 2022 Wyndham Championship Fantasy golf rankings

For the 2022 Wyndham Championship, Gates is touting a player for fantasy rosters who is priced at around $7,500 at DraftKings. This golfer has rounded back into form after taking some time off. His recent struggles will scare many people away, but Gates is using that to his advantage for his Wyndham Championship Fantasy picks.
