There aren’t too many big names in the field at the RBC Heritage, but defending champion Branden Grace is one player who can provide some star power.

The RBC Heritage marks a routine to normalcy on the PGA Tour after that intense and thrilling Masters Week. Held at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina, the RBC Heritage is one of the more idiosyncratic venues on the circuit and should provide a great test for the players this week.

Most courses in the PGA Tour rotation favor long hitters, but that won’t be the case this week. Instead, Harbour Town places a premium on shot shaping and short game, so this could be a great opportunity for some of the game’s more accurate players.

Of course, that wrinkle might be the reason for the relative weakness of this week’s field. Pro golfers build their schedules around the tournaments that give them the best chance to win; when many of the game’s top pros are your prototypical bombers, it makes sense that the RBC Heritage would be neglected a bit. That’s their loss, though, because the tournament organizers always put on a great event at Harbour Town, full of compelling golf and Sunday intrigue.

Which players are the best bets to pack a fantasy punch this week? Without further ado, here are five featured picks. Each player’s DraftKings salary is listed next to his name.
