Past Fantasy Outlooks
David Duval passed a significant hurdle on his long road back last season - he earned his PGA TOUR card again. Duval has spent much of his comeback relying on exemptions that he earned long ago. Last year, he earned his card on the course. Now, before getting too excited, realize that his earnings from 2010 are base almost solely on two outings. One was a runner-up finish at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and the other was T6 at the Frys.com Open. In between those outings, Duval was a complete non-factor. It's hard to gauge where Duval's game is now because he'll show flashes of his previous self from time to time, but too often he's this new player we don't recognize. Not surprisingly, Duval's stats just aren't very good anymore. When he's on, though, he's one of the better putters on the PGA TOUR.
Great story and I admire his tenacity, but I am afraid Duval's run at the U.S. Open in 2009 was his last hurrah. Draft him if you like to see a lot of missed cuts.
Even before his top-10 performance at the Dunlop Phoenix Open, Duval would have been worth the low price tag he'll likely command in most leagues. Take that tournament into account and he becomes a must have. If there's any chance Duval can make some cuts and gain some top-25s, you need to take him here. Duval is in the last season of his exemption from his British Open victory. He will do everything he can to retain his card for next year. Let's see if desperation can improve his game.
Until we see Duval break 70 a few times, we can't take him seriously as a fantasy pick. Is the desire ever going to come back? Does he want to be a great player? Bid with skepticism.
Unlike all the other seasons, there's really not that much risk taking Duval this year because his value is undoubtedly at an all-time low. Even if he can just find part of his game again and close in on $1 million, you'll get much more than you pay for him. Don't expect a complete recovery -- the hole he's dug himself is too deep -- but a return to respectability seems plausible. Did the former No. 2 player really earn just $84,708 last season?
