The top golfers on the PGA Tour get back to work this week, and the title is on the line as the FedExCup Playoffs begin with the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship. Scottie Scheffler heads into the tournament at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tenn. with a 1,220-point lead. The winner gets 2,000 points, so he isn't a lock for the title yet. Among those in pursuit are British Open champion Cameron Smith, Rory McIlroy, reigning FedExCup champion Patrick Cantlay and PGA winner Justin Thomas. 

Caesars Sportsbook lists McIlroy as the 10-1 favorite in its latest 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship odds. Scheffler is priced at 14-1, followed by Smith (16-1), Cantlay (18-1), Thomas (18-1), Jon Rahm (18-1) and Xander Schauffele (18-1).

Which players can you trust for your 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship fantasy golf picks? Before you bet the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship or lock in any Fantasy golf lineups, you NEED to see the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship Fantasy golf rankings from 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.

Gates has been on a roll this season with his picks. At the Rocket Mortgage, he 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. 

Gates also NAILED the Open Championship, going with champion Cameron Smith among his outright winners despite many experts writing off the Australian. For the John Deere Classic, Gates pegged 40-1 longshot J.T. 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. Anyone who followed Gates' advice has cashed in on their Fantasy golf picks.

Now, Gates has ranked his top players for the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship, and we can tell you the expert is strongly behind Finau, especially at less than $10,000 at DraftKings. Not only has Finau won consecutive tournaments, he took the victory in the playoff opener at the 2021 Northern Trust. Gates sees him as a real bargain this week.   

On the other hand, Gates is fading U.S. Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick, who has struggled to post low scores lately. The 27-year-old has shot 70 or higher in five of his past eight rounds. He also finished 3 over at last year's St. Jude Invitational, so the expert isn't expecting him to make a run this week.  

For this week's event in Memphis, Gates is backing a sleeper for fantasy rosters who is priced at less than $8,000 at DraftKings! This golfer appears to be breaking out of his funk, so while many players will steer clear, Gates is banking on him for his FedEx St. Jude Fantasy golf picks. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who Gates is backing and check out his top picks before you lock in any FedEx St. Jude Championship 2022 fantasy golf picks!
