When creating Fantasy golf lineups for the 2024 RBC Heritage, one shouldn't overlook players that struggled last week at the Masters. Yes, Scottie Scheffler is the +400 favorite after winning another green jacket, but Scheffler also didn't even notch a top-10 in his lone start at Hilton Head. Meanwhile, golfers like Jordan Spieth and Emiliano Grillo missed the cut at Augusta but have two top 10s over their last three starts at the RBC Heritage. Balancing recent results versus course history is one of the key components to forming a winning RBC Heritage Fantasy golf strategy.

Spieth has three top-2 finishes over the last two calendar years, and two of those have come at this tournament. He won in a playoff versus Patrick Cantlay in 2022 and lost in a playoff to Matt Fitzpatrick at last year's tournament. However, coming off the worst Masters score of his career (+9), can Spieth bounce back to make a positive impact in Fantasy golf lineups? Before making any 2024 RBC Heritage fantasy golf picks, you have to see the RBC Heritage fantasy golf rankings from SportsLine handicapper Eric Cohen.

Cohen is an avid golf bettor who correctly predicted the pre-tournament outright winner of the 2024 Masters (Scottie Scheffler, +350), Players Championship (Scheffler +550), 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic (Rickie Fowler +1400), 2023 PGA Championship (Brooks Koepka +2000), 2023 Honda Classic (Chris Kirk +3500), 2022 Open Championship (Cameron Smith +2200), 2022 U.S. Open (Matt Fitzpatrick +2500), and 2022 Phoenix Open (Scheffler's first career victory at +2800).

Cohen is a contributor to SportsLine's YouTube shows including "Early Edge" and is the host of "The Early Wedge" golf show. Anyone who has followed Cohen's predictions has made positive gains on their golf picks.

Now, Cohen has ranked his top golfers for the 2024 RBC Heritage. Cohen's picks are only available at SportsLine.

2024 RBC Heritage expert picks

One player Cohen is getting behind for his fantasy picks is Will Zalatoris as a serious contender at +2500. The former Wake Forest Demon Deacon returns to the Carolinas fresh off a ninth place at Augusta. It was his third top 10 of the season -- all at signature events or majors -- so he performs his best against the toughest fields. He played Harbour Town Golf Links once before and was near the top 10 heading into Round 3 before a tough weekend knocked him down the leaderboard.

This course is laden with water hazards, and it also features some of the smallest greens of any PGA Tour course. Thus, accuracy is essential, and Zalatoris ranks 10th in driving accuracy percentage. He also has top 25 rankings in both strokes gained: tee-to-green and strokes gained: approach the green, so those tiny greens shouldn't pose much of a problem to him. If his putter is on, as it has been in his recent top 10 finishes, then Zalatoris could be a Fantasy golf sleeper pick for the 2024 RBC Heritage.

On the other hand, the golf expert is fading Aberg, who finished second at the Masters, at +1400 odds this week. He was impressive in his debut at Augusta and will now compete at Harbour Town Golf Links for the first time. However, Aberg struggled at a comparable course of TPC River Highlands at the Travelers Championship. Like Harbour Town, TPC River Highlands is a Pete Dye design, and Aberg finished 24th at the Travelers and was 10 shots back of the winner.

Aberg also hasn't yet displayed the consistency on tour as other top-ranked golfers. Before his runner-up at the Masters, he had four top 5 finishes in official tour events. However, he failed to even place in the top 10 in the four PGA tournaments following those top 5s. Aberg's still in his first calendar year as a professional and has lots to learn in terms of navigating a PGA Tour schedule, and with no prior experience at a tricky course, Cohen doesn't see the Swede as warranting a spot in Fantasy golf lineups. See all of Cohen's RBC Heritage picks at SportsLine
