Past Fantasy Outlooks
Marino wasted no time in establishing himself on the PGA Tour as a rookie in 2007 and for five years, he was comfortably on that second or third tier as a guy who could win any given week, but wasn't quite ready to step-up to the next level. In 2012 however, Marino was hit with the injury bug and only now is he starting to recover. Last season was his best since 2011 and the outlook is good for Marino, but can he get back to his pre-2012 levels? Too early to tell, but he's certainly worth a look in salary cap leagues. Marino should go off the board near the 10th round in draft leagues.
Marino is no lock to succeed this season, but he does have nine events to earn just over $414k this year and retain his playing privileges for the remainder of the season. With Marino, it's always going to come down to health and there's just no way to know how he feels until he gets back out there. He's probably worth the risk in salary cap leagues because of his minimal price.
Marino missed most of last season due to lingering issues with his knee. He gave it a go on two separate occasions, but the knee just wouldn't cooperate. He'll play this season on a major medical extension, and because he only teed it up six times last season, he'll essential have an entire season to earn his card for this season. It's redundant, but that's how it works; make enough to match No. 125 on the list and you have your privileges for the remainder of the year. No matter the system, Marino if healthy, should easily crack $1 million again this year.
teve Marino has yet to live up to his full potential, but he appears to be trending in the right direction, and this could be the year that he puts it all together. Last season wasn't exactly a letdown, though, as he did find a couple runner-up finishes during the year. Marino's problem, however, has always been closing. He's been in position to win a few times and each time he's failed to close. Closing is sometimes ingrained in someone's DNA and sometimes its a skill that is learned. In Marino's case, he's had enough lessons in closing, or failing to close anyway, and now is the time to finally get that win. Marino should pick up a victory at some point this year. And in doing so, he'll improve his earnings significantly. In draft leagues, Marino could be considered in the fourth round.
Marino disappointed many fantasy players last season as he was trending upward heading into 2010. His game, however, regressed to its lowest levels since his rookie season in 2007. Marino still appears to have a load of talent, and 2010 could be chalked up as a small setback. Marino finished 15th in the FedExCup standings in 2009, which shows he can play when the pressure is on. Expect a nice bounce-back from Marino this year. Marino is pretty solid in the core categories, but his specialty is GIR where he ranked 15th and 21st, respectively, in 2008 and 2009.
Marino has made a gradual improvement in the standings each of the last three seasons. He finished his rookie season ranked 70th in the final FedEx standings, improved to 36th in 2008, and finished an impressive 15th in 2009. There's no reason to think the ascension will stop this season, either. Marino's lone runner-up finish last season came during a playoff. If he can find that extra gear this season and close out an event in style, his numbers should be even better. Still, even if Marino is unable to claim his first win, he is a nice pick for the upcoming season.
Marino had a nice sophomore season, but his best results came when the best in the world were not around. With that said, his improvement from year one to year two was very nice, expect to see improvement in year three also.
One look at Stephen Marino's stats and you have to wonder how he retained his card for 2008. Evidently he can't find a fairway, or the hole once on the green. He's neither accurate off the tee or on the green. Marino is one of those players that somehow produces even though every number you look at says the he shouldn't. It's hard to justify selecting a player like this though, there's nothing from his stats, or even his results to make you think he'll be significantly better in 2008.
