Justin Thomas
27-Year-Old Golfer
2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Thomas is still an enigma as he looks like the best player in the world at times and others, he looks unrecognizable. Last season he had to deal with a wrist injury that cost him two months in the middle of the season, yet he still managed to bank over $5 million. Considering his previous two seasons he earned $8 million and $9 million respectively, Thomas is almost a "must-have" in salary cap formats this season. His $5 million price tag is the only thing keeping him from a definite "must-have" as that's a large investment, but there's every reason to believe that with a full season, he'll again be around $8 million this year.

Narrowly misses 3rd TOC title
January 10, 2021
Thomas fired a seven-under 66 in the final round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions to finish in solo third place.
Thomas ended up coming up one shot shy of getting into a playoff in his bid for his third win in the Sentry Tournament of Champions. It was really a misjudged second shot on the par-4 17th hole that led to a bogey that ended up costing him a chance to win again in Hawaii. Thomas didn't have a great driving week, but did rank first in SG: Approach and third in SG: Around-the-greens. The Alabama product will not be in the field next week at the Sony Open.

Golf Draft Kit: RotoWire Staff League Results
11 days ago
Dustin Johnson was the most expensive player in the annual RotoWire staff golf league over Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy, but fewer top golfers stood out in a format that gives a guide for season-long leagues.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Although he finished seventh on the FedEx points list, Thomas was the leading money earner in 2017-18. Prior to the FedEx Cup, that held a lot more prestige, but considering the FedEx bonus is more than anyone earned on the course last season, it obviously has lost some luster. It is an important number for salary cap leagues, however, as Thomas enters this season with the highest price tag. Thomas won three times last season and five times the season prior. He's in the conversation of best golfer alive, and there's no reason to think he falls out of that conversation this season. As mentioned, though, the price tag is too high for salary cap purposes this season. In draft leagues he could go as high as No. 1, but shouldn't fall below third or fourth overall.
There are several words that come to mind when thinking about Thomas' 2016-17 season. Awesome, incredible, impressive and don't forget surprising. Thomas has had the "potential" label for a few years now, but unlike most of his buddies, Thomas had yet to reach his potential. That began to change early in the 2016-17 season as he posted three wins before the month of February. As expected after that third win, the golf world went nuts and Thomas was inserted as the Masters favorite, the FedExCup favorite and a lock for the Hall of Fame. A funny thing happened after that third win though, Thomas' game left him for several months. He obviously found his game before the end of the season and that's why it was so impressive. It would have been easy to get complacent after three wins to start the season, but he battled through a slump that saw him miss three consecutive cuts at one point, to end the season on top of the golf world. With all of that said, there is simply too much talent on the PGA Tour for any one golfer to do what Thomas did last season, in two consecutive seasons.
Thomas' ascension to the top of the PGA Tour ranks has come fast and furious. As a rookie in 2015, Thomas was unable to find a victory or even a top-3 for that matter, but he was able to parlay seven top-10s in to over $2.2 million in earnings. Last season, Thomas won his second start and never looked back. When it was all done, Thomas added three more top-3s on his way to over $4 million in earnings. Thomas appears to be getting better and even though he set the bar pretty high last season, he should be able to improve upon his number this year. In draft leagues, Thomas should go in the 2nd-round.
Thomas has an opportunity to be an absolute stud on the PGA Tour. A part of an Alabama team that won a National Championship, Thomas won the third Web.com Tour Finals event, the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, in a playoff for his first win of the year. Coupled with a second, third, fourth, and a fifth, it was an extremely solid year for Thomas, who finished fifth in total season money, will start the 2014-2015 PGA Tour season second on the Reshuffle List, and is in prime position to make a fall charge. Averaging 311.5 yards off the tee and ending the year third in scoring average, fantasy players will want to draft and start this guy early and often: he’s got the making of an absolute young gun.
