Brandt Snedeker
38-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Snedeker spent several years as one of the top players on the PGA Tour. He was not quite in the elite category because he failed to win a major, but he was right below that group, often threatening to bust down the doors. Injuries have hampered his growth over the past few years however and he's not quite the same guy he was as recently as five years ago. That said, Snedeker posted his best numbers in years last season and he might be ready to make another charge at the top of the tour. Snedeker is in his late-30s, which means he's past his peak, but he still has a few high-quality years left. He set the bar pretty high last season, but there's a chance that he could significantly improve upon his number from last season. Read Past Outlooks
Struggles off the tee
June 23, 2019
Snedeker closed with a one-under 69 on Sunday at the Travelers Championship to finish three-under and tied for 43rd.
ANALYSIS
Snedeker's relatively uneventful week at TPC River Highlands included just 13 total birdies as he failed to help out his daily fantasy owners, despite ranking eighth in SG: Approach. He lost nearly three strokes off the tee and finished outside of the top-50 in both driving distance and accuracy. Snedeker will look to improve at the upcoming Rocket Mortgage Classic.

Snedeker's 2016-17 season was hampered by injury almost from the get-go and his resulting earnings number makes him a must have in salary cap leagues this season. When healthy, Snedeker is easily a top-20 player on the PGA Tour, but he's had trouble staying healthy over the past five years. That said, he was very cautious last season, and that should pay off during the upcoming season as he should be more durable after all the time off.
Snedeker became a member of the PGA Tour 10 seasons ago and in that time, he's earned just over $30 million. For those that aren't great with math, that's about $3 million per year. There aren't many guys on the PGA Tour that can claim that. Snedeker peaked in 2013 when he won two events and earned over $5.3 million, so the upside is certainly there. While there's no reason to think Snedeker will regress, it's hard to imagine a significant improvement on such a solid number from last season and as such, he's not a great salary cap pick. In drafts, he's a solid 2nd-round pick.
Snedeker is obviously better than what he showed last year and it seems like only a matter of time before he returns to the player he was a couple years ago. $1.6 million in earnings for Snedeker is considered a poor year and as such, he's a "must-have" player entering the 2014 season. Like most guys that are considered "must-have's", his price is low enough that there's virtually no risk. That's the easy part, the hard part is figuring out where he should go in a draft league. He could go as high as the 2nd round, but to be safe, he should probably go in the 3rd round this season.
Snedeker is a tough guy to peg. He'll go on stretches where he looks like the best player on the planet, only to disappear for a long stretch. Last year he had a good excuse to disappear as he was dealing with an injury soon after a hot start. If fully healthy, Snedeker could challenge for the money list title and possibly win a major. The former seems more likely at this point though as Snedeker hasn't been a factor at too many majors early in his career. If healthy the entire season, Snedeker is a top-5 pick in a draft format and even a reasonable pick in a salary cap format.
Snedeker was one of a handful of golfers who had a breakthrough season in 2012, and the future certainly looks bright for the 32-year-old from Nashville. What is perhaps most impressive about Snedeker's 2012 campaign is how he finished. After a solid regular season it would have been completely acceptable to coast to the end, but Snedeker did the exact opposite. Snedeker finished runner-up at the first FedEx Cup event last year and followed with a sixth-place finish at the Deutsche Bank Classic. After a hiccup at the BMW, Snedeker captured the Tour Championship, and the FedEx Cup along with it. It's hard to imagine the Snedeker could improve upon a very impressive 2012 season, but there's one thing he can do that would top it - win a major. He's certainly capable, but even if he does, it will be difficult to top his 2012 earnings. As such, he's not a wise pick in salary cap leagues. He is, however, a first-round pick in draft leagues.
It took four years, but Snedeker finally again found the winner's circle in 2011. Snedeker went three seasons without a win, failing to crack $2 million in a season. Expectations were high for Snedeker after an outstanding rookie campaign, but he failed to live up to them in the years following. Perhaps now he's finally turned the corner and we'll get to see the best of what he can offer. His number from last year is awfully high, and considering he spent the most part of the three previous season's in the $1 million range, he's probably a bit too much of a risk. In draft leagues he should be a late second-round selection.
Snedeker continued to frustrate many fantasy owners last season as he sometimes showed signs of his potential, but more often than not fell short in the end. Snedeker appeared to be on his way up the PGA TOUR ladder in 2007 when he earned nearly $3 million. Since, however, he's been stuck in the $1- and $2-million range. It seems a safe bet that Snedeker will at minimum match his production from last season, so there's little risk in selecting him at this number. His upside remains high also, which makes him a solid pick in this spot. Snedeker ranked first in putting last season, and while he may struggle to match that feat again this year, he should once again be among the PGA TOUR leaders.
It's been all downhill for Snedeker since his amazing rookie season in 2007. Well, that's a little harsh, it's not like he's fallen off the map since 2007. He's actually maintained a top-40 spot in the FedEx rankings the last three seasons, but once you set the bar as high as he did in 2007, it's hard to call the past two seasons a success. His loss is our gain, however, as he's primed for another great season, and he's sitting there at a great price. Snedeker has the game to win multiple times on the PGA TOUR, he just needs a little early season success this year to get the ball rolling.
Snedeker fell back to Earth in 2008 after a brilliant rookie season. The question now becomes, which is the real Snedeker? A quick look at his stats leaves a little to be desired. If he putts well, he has enough game to win, if not, he ends up around this spot. Snedeker cracked a rib at the Masters causing withdrawals preparatory to, and including, The Players.
It didn't take long for Snedeker to find his way on the PGA Tour. An early season third-place finish at the Buick Invitational set the tone for the season, and a win at the Wyndham Championship capped what turned out to be a great rookie campaign. Snedeker not only won rookie of the year honors, but he ended up in the top-30 in the Fed Ex Cup standings which gave him an entry into the Tour Championship. He'll have a difficult time reaching the numbers he posted last year, and he probably won't get all the way there, but he should come close.
