The PGA TOUR’s next stop is the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow, but unfortunately, Brendon Todd won’t be playing after a recent positive test for COVID-19. He’ll be replaced by J.J. Spaun.

Todd was listed 130-1 on FanDuel Sportsbook, so the impact in the betting markets should be minimal.
Jon Rahm enters the week as the betting favorite for this tournament as FanDuel has him listed at +1000. He comes into this tournament in excellent form — ranking 12th in Strokes Gained: Approach and second in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee over his last 20 rounds, per Data Golf. Only Bryson DeChambeau has gained more strokes off-the-tee than Rahm over that time frame.
And even at Rahm’s steep $12,100 price tag on FanDuel, he projects as the No. 1 value in Daily Roto’s PGA DFS projections, which are powered by Data Golf.
Rory McIlroy at $11,800 could be a viable pivot off Rahm in large-field tournaments if you’re looking for an ownership discount. McIlroy’s recent form may keep him from being overly popular in this pricing tier.
