Here are our Sleeper picks and Longshots for the US Open

Freddie JacobsonFreddie Jacobson (150-1) – Jacobson has been all over the map in 2014 with his finishes. He has missed a bunch of cuts but has three Top 10 finishes as well. He is ranked in the top 80 in the Official World Golf Rankings, so he is a golfer that could challenge on any given week. Prior to last year’s MC at the US Open, he did finish in the top 15 the previous 2 years. As one of the underdogs, he could be a great low cost fantasy option.

Best Fantasy Golf SitesPaul CaseyPaul Casey (100-1) – Casey has been hot the last month and a half with top 20 finishes. Could he win the US Open? Maybe not, but could he make the cut and score you a ton of points? He would be a low cost risk if you want to find out.

Bill HaasBill Haas (80-1) – Haas hasn’t been spectacular on the PGA Tour in 2014, but he also hasn’t missed a cut all season. Go back to our 1st point above about what you need to win a big fantasy golf contest - you need golfers to make cuts. He has the game to win the 2014 US Open, but he is more likely to at least play all four rounds.

Graham DeLaetGraham DeLaet (66-1) – DeLaet has been great in 2014, but gets lost in a field with star players. DeLaet’s short game is great and at the longshot odds that bookmakers have him at, he is obviously a forgotten golfer. Don’t sleep on this sleeper pick! If he can fit into your lineup, stick him in!

Hideki MatsuyamaHideki Matsuyama (50-1) – The best kept secret in golf may not be a secret anymore. Having just won the Memorial, Matsuyama’s fantasy stock has risen. Many fantasy players that used him at the beginning of 2014 have watched his salary cap price continue to rise. He will no longer be a low cost sleeper pick anymore at the Top Daily Fantasy Golf Sites, but he won’t be a high priced option either.

Charl SchwartzelCharl Schwartzel (50-1) – Because he doesn’t play as much in the US as he does in Europe, Charl Schwartzel is often overlooked in fantasy golf. He’s not a typical low cost sleeper pick, but he won’t be anywhere need the top of the salary cap grid. He was a disappointment at the 2014 Masters, but should make the cut this week and be a good fantasy point source.

Jimmy WalkerJimmy Walker (50-1) – Walker should almost feel disrespected at the long odds most books have him at. He has the most wins on the PGA Tour this year and has led the FedEx Cup standings all year. He competes in every tournament he enters and is a solid statistical player. Walker won’t be cheap at DraftKings or DraftStreet, but he won’t be one of the top priced guys either. He will be a forgotten man when most people look at their fantasy lineups, don’t be the one to overlook this top longshot.
