2014-15 Fantasy Golf Outlook

Good old steady Matt Kuchar. He's one of the most reliable players on the PGA Tour, but for those that had Kuchar on their team last year, he was a bit of a disappointment. It's hard to label anyone who made nearly $5 million in earnings a disappointment, but Kuchar is a former money-list and Fed Ex Cup champion, so the bar is set pretty high. There's no reason to think he'll regress in 2015 and we know his ceiling is much higher than $5 million, so he's a viable option in salary cap leagues this year. He's also a first-rounder in draft leagues.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Good old steady Matt Kuchar. He's one of the most reliable players on the PGA Tour, but for those that had Kuchar on their team last year, he was a bit of a disappointment. It's hard to label anyone who made nearly $5 million in earnings a disappointment, but Kuchar is a former money-list and Fed Ex Cup champion, so the bar is set pretty high. There's no reason to think he'll regress in 2015 and we know his ceiling is much higher than $5 million, so he's a viable option in salary cap leagues this year. He's also a first-rounder in draft leagues.

2013-14

Kuchar just keep plugging along. He's not the flashiest player on the PGA Tour, but year in and year out, he's always producing. Kuchar's ceiling is only limited by the fact that he's yet to win a major. He's got everything needed to win one, it just hasn't happened yet. Look for Kuchar to be more competitive at the majors in 2014 and for his totals to be near what they were last year. He's a legit number two pick in a draft format, but probably a bit too pricy in a salary cap format.

2013

Amazingly, at just less than $4 million, Kuchar's earnings fell for the second consecutive season last year. That's not to say a trend is developing, though. Kuchar constantly seems on the brink of greatness, yet he just can't seem to take the next step. Considering he's been one of the best players on the PGA TOUR the last three years, you have to think that the next step for Kuchar is inevitable. If he takes that next step this season, he likely would show a significant increase in earnings, but that's a big if. As with any player with a number this large, there's an inherent risk, but Kuchar, unlike some others near the top 10, might be the right golfer on whom to take a chance. In draft leagues, Kuchar should go late first or early second round.

2012

The 2010 money leader didn't quite live up to expectations in 2011. Yet another example of just how difficult it is to stay atop this game. Kuchar earned more than $4 million last year and barely made a blip on the radar. The fact that he earned that much without the benefit of a win is both positive and negative. Positive in that he had to play consistently well to earn as much without the benefit of a huge check through the season, but negative in that a player of Kuchar's caliber should be able to find a win somewhere on the schedule each season. Kuchar is not a good option in salary cap leagues this season, but he's definitely a first-rounder in draft formats.

2011

Kuchar had a breakout 2010 season and the future looks bright, but for those in salary cap leagues, his number is awfully high. Don't expect much of an improvement on his 2010 numbers - if Kuchar can match them, it would be quite the feat. The $5 million club is reserved for the best of the best, and even though he topped the money list in 2010, don't expect a repeat performance in 2011. On the bright side, Kuchar does tee it up often. He played more than any other player in the top 10 last season, so he'll have his opportunities to bolster his numbers in 2011. Kuchar is not long off the tee, but he's solid in every other aspect of his game, including putting where he finished sixth on the PGA TOUR last season.

2010

Is Kuchar ready to take the next step? He'll have to improve his performance in the regular season if he's going to top his numbers from 2009. Kuchar got fat on the fall season last year, which is good for him, but it doesn't do fantasy players much good. His late-season win should give him some added confidence entering this season, but until he can step up his game during the first eight months of the year, he's not worthy of being in this spot.

2009

Kuchar has had a difficult time hanging with the big boys on the PGA Tour. He had what appeared to be a good season in 2008, but he only produced when up against weak fields. Kuchar doesn’t appear to be heading in a direction that would validate his selection.

2008

2007 was a make or break year for Kuchar. After struggling for years to retain his card, Kuchar was forced to go the Nationwide route to earn his card. He did so during the 2006 season and gained another shot at the PGA Tour. He played well enough to keep his card for 2008, and this time around he should hold onto it longer. Kuchar has not displayed the type of game that made him a winner of the PGA Tour for a while, but he did show glimpses of it last year. I would not be surprised to see Kuchar step it up a notch this year.
