2014-15 Fantasy Golf Outlook

Ryan Palmer is a very good golfer, but consistency from year to year, let alone week to week has never been his strong point. He's been in this rarified air before, he earned almost the exact same amount in 2010, but followed that season up with three seasons around the $1.5 million mark. He's been at this for a while now and it looks like his ceiling is around the $3 million mark, which makes him a poor choice for salary cap leagues this year. In draft leagues he should go in the 3rd or 4th round.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Ryan Palmer is a very good golfer, but consistency from year to year, let alone week to week has never been his strong point. He's been in this rarified air before, he earned almost the exact same amount in 2010, but followed that season up with three seasons around the $1.5 million mark. He's been at this for a while now and it looks like his ceiling is around the $3 million mark, which makes him a poor choice for salary cap leagues this year. In draft leagues he should go in the 3rd or 4th round.

2013-14

Palmer has long been known as a streaky player, but he started to show some consistency in 2013, which could lead to bigger and better things this year. Palmer earned most of his $1.5 million during four events where he finished in the top-10 last year, but he also showed a pretty solid cut percentage, missing only five cuts in 22 events. If he can maintain that consistency and sprinkle in some high-end finishes, he could be in for a solid season. He's worth a look in salary cap leagues and he should go in the 50-60 range in drafts.

2013

Palmer last won on the PGA TOUR early in 2010, and while he's gone almost 36 months since that victory he's still managed to put up some good numbers. The problem with Palmer is his timing. He rarely plays well in big events, which is reflected in his earnings. Palmer may sneak a win in this season, but until he plays better when there's more on the line, he won't improve his earnings significantly. As such, Palmer is not a good option in salary cap formats this season. In draft leagues, look for him in the sixth or seventh round.

2012

Palmer frustrates the heck out of his owners. Some weeks he'll play extremely well and others it's like he forgot how to play altogether. The problem with Palmer is his upside appears limited. His best season came in 2010 when he won the season-opening event on his way to nearly $3 million in earnings, but even during that season he had maddening stretches where he was completely irrelevant. It doesn't appear that Palmer will change his stripes anytime soon, and if you decide to take him, be aware that it's going to be a hit or miss every week, with little between. In draft leagues, Palmer should go in the fifth- to sixth-round range.

2011

Palmer was the highest ranked "sandwich" golfer last season. Sandwich golfers play well early and late in the season, but don't produce during the meat of the season. Palmer won the Sony Open in early January last season and then didn't accomplish much of anything until late August when he finished second at the WGC Bridgestone. The problem with "sandwich" golfers is that most of their earnings fall outside the fantasy golf season. In Palmer's case, though, most of his earnings came just inside the standard fantasy golf season, so he's still a viable option. That said, he'll have a tough time matching last season's numbers. Palmer's success in 2010 was based largely on his putting, where he ranked 10th on the PGA TOUR last season.

2010

Palmer has one year left for winning in 2008, but lightning in a bottle comes once a decade. Palmer has been mediocre with flashes of brillaince, but has yet to be a consistent PGA Tour player. Be cautious on drfat day, but he will have full playing privledges in 2010.

2009

Palmer is no stranger to the million-dollar mark in earnings, but his upside is a question mark. What we do know is that he made most of his money last year against weaker fields. Not a good sign if you are looking for value.

2007

Palmer played well early in 2006 and he played well late in 2006. That's not the formula you want when drafting golfers. To this point in his career, Palmer has played his best golf in the last few months of each season. His early success in 2006 is a good sign, but he still needs to get something done during the summer months.

2006

Here's what to expect from Moore: slow start, strong finish. The question is, can he get it going earlier this year? In his 2004 rookie season, it took him 10 months to gain a top-10, last year it took seven months. While that looks like improvement, it takes more than two years before you can call that a trend. But Moore seems to play well once the switch is flipped. He just needs to flip that switch earlier this year. Another case where you are better off not taking him and watching to see if any progress is made.
