2013-14 Fantasy Golf Outlook

Watney was on his way to a very disappointing 2013 season, but he turned it all around with a solid finish. The end of the season play makes sense, it's the early-season struggles that was bizarre. With that said, it is those early-season struggles that makes Watney a good option in salary cap formats. Those same struggles might allow you to grab him later in the draft than you normally would as well. He should go in the 10-20 range, but don't be surprised if he slips a little further than that.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Watney was on his way to a very disappointing 2013 season, but he turned it all around with a solid finish. The end of the season play makes sense, it's the early-season struggles that was bizarre. With that said, it is those early-season struggles that makes Watney a good option in salary cap formats. Those same struggles might allow you to grab him later in the draft than you normally would as well. He should go in the 10-20 range, but don't be surprised if he slips a little further than that.

2013

With two wins and over $5 million in earnings in 2011, Watney appeared to be ready to ascend to the top of the PGA TOUR in 2012 and although that didn't happen, Watney still managed to have a pretty decent season. Of course when you set the bar as high as he did in 2011, there are bound to be detractors, but Watney seems like the type of player that is going to be pretty steady no matter the situation. Watney doesn't seem like a guy who likes the spotlight so much as and such, maybe he'll be better off entering the 2013 a bit under the radar. The talent is certainly there as well as the demeanor, so it's only a matter of time before he gets back to where he was in 2011. If he gets there in 2013, then his selection will prove very wise, if not, then he should at minimum match what he did last year. In drafts, Watney should go in the 2nd round.

2012

Watney quietly earned more than $5 million last season. Quietly, because it didn't feel like he had a great season, but $2 million-plus will do that for you. The wins were big; the first at the WGC Cadillac Championship and the second at the AT&T National. Both netted more than $1 million, which accounted for about half of his 2011 earnings. Funny thing is, he hasn't reached his ceiling yet. It's hard to imagine, however, that Watney can improve significantly on his number from last season

2011

Perhaps no one benefitted more from the Whistling Straits debacle than Nick Watney. Lost in all the controversy surrounding Dustin Johnson was the fact that Watney fell apart in the final round by shooting an 81. Watney held the 54-hole lead, but that lead quickly evaporated on Sunday. That final-round blow up was quite out of character for Watney as he's shown a remarkable consistency in his game the last few years. Even with that setback, Watney had a big year with 15 of his 24 starts resulting in top-25 finishes. He didn't have the high-end finishes that he had the year prior, but those should return this season. Watney is a bomber off the tee and is usually one of the best at GIR.

2010

Watney started the 2009 season on fire, winning in February and earning a couple top-4 finishes in March. Watney tailed off a bit through the middle of the season, but he finished strong with two top-6 finishes following the PGA Championship. Watney's upside is higher than many of the players in the $3 million area on the money list, though it will be difficult for him to top last season's career year with another career-best season in 2010. Watney should remain a top-20 player this season, but he's not a great selection in a salary cap league since it will be difficult for him to significantly improve on last year's numbers. Watney, who ranked 203rd at the end of 2008, jumped to 32nd in the final 2009 Official World Golf Rankings.

2008

Watney is young player who should be pretty good in a few years, but it is going to take him some time to find the consistency needed to move to the next level. Most of his earnings last year came from one event, the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, which he won. He has shown a pattern of playing well a couple times each season, which to this point has kept him on the PGA Tour, but he'll need to show up more often before he becomes a good pick.

2007

Watney didn't really accomplish much outside the weak regular-season events and the fall season. He failed to keep his card after his rookie season in 2004, so the fact that he played well enough to keep his card for 2007 is good sign, but there's not much evidence a breakout is imminent.
