Yahoo DFS Golf: AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Coming into the 2016-17 season, Points had failed to crack $400k in earnings in any on his previous three seasons. It is for that reason that his win at the Puerto Rico Open was such a shock. Nonetheless, Points picked up his third career win on the PGA Tour and he's now fully exempt for the upcoming season. Points was a relatively successful golfer on the PGA Tour about seven or eight years ago, but even with the win last season, he appears to be past his prime. With that in mind, Points is not a good salary cap option this season.
Points made little more than $300K in 18 PGA Tour events last season, and nearly three-quarters of it came from three top-20 finishes. Aside from that, he never finished inside the top 50. But T6 at the DAP Championship in the first Web.com Finals event all but sealed his PGA Tour card for 2016-17. A two-time PGA Tour winner, Points hasn't finished in the top 10 in three years and will probably make it four this season.
Points struggled his first few years on the PGA Tour, but right around 2009 he figured everything out. From that point through the end of the 2013 season, Points was very productive, never falling below $900k in earnings. Last year however was very strange as Points completely lost it. Luckily he captured a win in 2013 and he's still fully exempt for the upcoming season. At this price, he's definitely a "must-have" in salary cap formats.
Points had a very solid 2013 campaign and while he didn't show the consistency that we'd like to see throughout the year, there were signs that he might just have figured this thing out. He doesn’t have the name recognition of a lot of guys that finished near him on the money list, so he probably won't go in the top-20, but if you are picking around spot number 30, he's worth a look. In salary cap leagues he's not a great option as the bar was set pretty high for him last year.
Points broke through for his first PGA TOUR win in 2011 and in the process topped $2 million for the first time. Last year he regressed a bit, but he still managed to put up some good numbers. The biggest issue with Points is his inconsistency. He plays a bunch of events each year, but he misses a lot of cuts. It looks like Points isn't quite ready to take the next step until he can find some consistency. As such, he's not a good choice in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues, he's likely a seventh-round selection.
Points earned three Top-10s in 2011 and two came in the first two months of the season. Fortunately for Points, one of those was a win at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Points earned more for that victory than he did the entire 2010 season. That's not exactly the resume you look for when selecting players in the $2-million range. Points could very well take off after getting his first victory last season, but if his play post-win last year is any indication, then it's best to stay well clear of him. Points should probably go in the sixth round in draft leagues.
Points appears to be getting the hang of playing on the PGA TOUR. He struggled in his rookie season in 2006, and after a brief stint on the Nationwide Tour, Points found his way back to the PGA TOUR in 2009. This time around, he earned his card within the season, matching that feat last year. His earnings, though, were less in 2010 than 2009, not exactly a good sign entering this season. Points could be one of those players who jumps up from a couple mediocre seasons this year, but it's more likely that he's simply a player who's going to max out at about $1.5 million. Points is fairly accurate off the tee but struggled with distance and putting last year.
Despite averaging 30 starts a season, Points failed to crack the $500,000 mark in earnings in each of his first two professional seasons. Points took two years off from the Tour, but he found his way back in 2009 and finished with his best season to date. It's a little scary backing a player who's never had anywhere near this level of success before, but Points appears to have what it takes to be a successful professional.
Points couldn't get it going during his rookie season on tour, but year two should bring more success. There is always an adjustment period for rookies on tour. Some take longer than others. Hopefully for Points his adjustment period is over.
