2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
After earning over $1.2 million in just 12 starts as a non-member in 2018, Niemann had plenty of momentum heading into this past season, but as the new season began, Niemann lost his way. He posted a top-10 in the fall portion of the season, but it wasn't until late-June that he actually rediscovered his form from 2018. During a six-week stretch leading into the FedEx playoffs, Niemann carded three top-10s and an additional pair of top-25s. It was all that was needed to reaffirm that this kid is going to be pretty good. At this price, Niemann has a lot of value in salary cap leagues this season. Read Past Outlooks
T31 at Torrey Pines
June 22, 2021
Niemann closed with a two-over 73 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish four-over and tied for 31st.
Niemann hit 12 greens in regulation while ranking 12th in SG: Off-the-Tee during Sunday's final round at Torrey Pines, but he was just T45 in putting average with 32 total putts in R4. The Chilean owns just one top-10 finish throughout his last 12 starts dating to the Genesis Invitational, but he'll remain 31st in the OWGR ahead of this week's Travelers Championship. Niemann's track record at TPC River Highlands includes a T5 in 2019.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Priority Category No. 21 states that if a non-member in a season equals the number of points by the No. 125th-ranked golfer from the previous season, he gets a card for the next season. Niemann did that, so he has a card for 2018-19 and he potentially will have a significant impact. The still-not-20-year-old Chilean sensation played 13 tournaments, 12 as a pro after missing the cut at the Masters, and notched four top-10s and six top-25s. Only 36 guys had more top-10s, and Niemann had the same number as Rickie Fowler, Francesco Molinari, Brandt Snedeker and Ian Poulter, among others. Let's talk stats: Niemann ranked second in greens in regulation, 12th in strokes gained: off the tee, fifth in strokes gained: approach and 15th in both strokes gained: tee-to-green and total. That, gamers, is the real deal. He needs to work on his putting, which was middle of the road, and his scrambling, which was horrible. Niemann earned a little more than $1.2 million, which would've placed him 101st on the money list. But remember, he played only half a season. Double it and he'd have finished about 44th in earnings. And then if you think he can get better in his first full season on Tour, then maybe we're talking about top-30 and the Tour Championship for Niemann.
