Billy Horschel won this event a year over Jim Furyk and Rory McIlroy. Here are 10 players to watch in Atlanta:

1. Jason DayNo better place to start than the current world No. 1. Day is the hottest player on the planet, has won two playoff events by six shots apiece and now has the FedEx Cup within his sights. The Aussie has won four out of his last six starts overall and finished T-4 at East Lake a year ago.

2. Henrik StensonA winner here in 2013, Stenson has been largely overshadowed by Day's recent form, but the Swede is playing well at the right time. He enters with three straight top-10 finishes, including a pair of runner-ups, and leads the Tour in both GIR percentage and total strokes gained.

3. Justin RoseRose finished T-13 at the BMW Championship, his seventh top-20 finish in his last nine starts, and his East Lake record is a strong one. The Englishman has three straight top-six finishes at the season finale, including a runner-up finish in 2012.

4. Rory McIlroy: The Ulsterman tied for fourth at Conway Farms, and could finally be fully healthy after his ankle injury in July. McIlroy finished second a year ago, and after failing to win the FedEx Cup in 2012 despite a pair of postseason wins, he could turn the tables by stealing the trophy from Day.

5. Jordan SpiethA win this week would cement Spieth's status as Player of the Year, but he finished T-27 last year including a third-round 80. That being said, he was a runner-up in 2013 during his Tour Championship debut and appears to have gotten his game back on track after a pair of missed cuts to open the playoffs.

6. Rickie FowlerFowler won three weeks ago at TPC Boston, and as a result he controls his own destiny this week at East Lake. Fowler chased his win with a T-4 finish last week in Chicago, and he finished eighth last year at East Lake.

7. Hideki MatsuyamaMatsuyama remains quietly solid, opening the postseason with three straight top-25 finishes. While his East Lake debut didn't pan out well in 2014, he hits plenty of greens - a key to success on the par-70 track.

8. Kevin Kisner: The Georgia product is happy to be at the season finale, but don't expect him to rest on his laurels. Kisner plays much of his best golf in the south, and he opened the playoffs with a pair of top-20 finishes before a stumble last week at Conway Farms.

9. Zach JohnsonJohnson doesn't have a stellar track record at East Lake, but he does have plenty of experience. The two-time major champ is a regular at the season finale, and he has three straight top-25 finishes to his credit, including a T-13 finish at the BMW.

10. Dustin JohnsonThe bomber missed out on the season finale last year, but he has the game to contend on a difficult track. Johnson has two top-10 finishes among his three postseason results, and is fifth on Tour in both birdie average and scoring average.
