2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Last season was Taylor's fourth on the PGA Tour and it was much like his previous three as far as his standing on the FedEx points list. Taylor actually picked up a win in his rookie season of 2015, but even with that win, he barely managed to top $1 million. Since then, he's topped $1 million just once in three seasons. Last season was fairly uneventful as Taylor managed just two top-10s all season. He picked up a top-10 in his first start in the fall and another top-10 in the final event prior to the FedEx playoffs. That top-10 was huge for Taylor, however, as it locked up his card for this season. Although he has that card, Taylor hasn't shown enough in his four years on the PGA Tour to justify a salary cap selection this season. Read Past Outlooks
Wild scorecard on Sunday
March 25, 2019
Taylor fell into a tie for 24th place after shooting a four-over 75 in the final round of the Valspar Championship.
Taylor had quite a rollercoaster ride on Sunday that ultimately came to a crashing halt at the end. He posted just one par in his first 11 holes to go along with five birdies and five bogeys. The Canadian then played the last four holes in four-over-par to end the tournament on a sour note. Taylor ranked second in FIR's and sixth in putts per GIR this week, but T59 in scrambling. This is his fifth consecutive top-35 finish.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Taylor earned his spot inside the top-100 by recording three top-10s in the span of seven events, but he flamed-out at the end of the season, missing the cut in three of his final five events. On the positive side, his four top-10s were a career high as was his 20 cuts made. Taylor appears to be trending upward, but the question is – how fast can he improve. His number from last season is not too much of a burden, so he's certainly a guy that you can take a chance on in salary cap leagues.
Taylor is exempt by virtue of winning the 2014 Sanderson Farms, which is looking like an aberration. He had only one top-10 last season, in the alternate-field Puerto Rico Open. Nothing indicates a more successful season ahead.
Of the guys who made it through via the Tour Finals, Taylor might have the best story of them all. Dewsweeping in one of the first groups out, Taylor shot a 63 on the Dye Valley course at TPC Sawgrass in the final round of the Tour Championship to clinch his card, capping off a season in which he had no top-5 finishes but three top-30 finishes in the Tour Finals that gave him enough money to get a PGA Tour card. 11 missed cuts in 24 starts certainly doesn’t have a nice look to it, and a Reshuffle List of 34th will make the road tougher, but that 63 did show that this guy has a lot of moxie.
