2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
DeChambeau's 2017-2018 season was absolutely insane. It would have been nearly impossible to replicate what he did during that season last year, but even with that said, more was expected. DeChambeau was north of $8 million just two years ago and while that seemed a little outrageous, something in the neighborhood of $5 million this past season was certainly within reason, but obviously that didn't happen. DeChambeau never found his stride this past season and his slow-play issues near the end likely wore on him. If he can get that behind him, (hopefully by speeding-up his play), then he should be back in the top-10 next season. Read Past Outlooks
T18 at Muirfield Village
June 8, 2021
DeChambeau carded a one-under 71 on Sunday at the Memorial Tournament to finish one-under and tied for 18th.
DeChambeau unsurprisingly led the field in driving distance at Muirfield Village, aiding him to 15 total birdies and a pair of eagles to boost his output in DFS formats. He managed to rank sixth in SG: Off-the-Tee, despite hitting only 29 of 56 fairways in regulation. Collin Morikawa's runner-up effort caused DeChambeau to drop one spot to No. 5 in the Official World Golf Ranking ahead of the upcoming U.S. Open.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
DeChambeau's ascent to the top of the PGA Tour hasn't taken long. DeChambeau first hit the scene in 2016 and he quickly made his mark. In his first full season on the PGA Tour, he picked up a runner-up at the Puerto Rico Open and a win at the John Deere Classic. Things were certainly looking up for DeChambeau and there was an expectation that he would continue to improve in 2017-18. To say he improved though is a huge understatement. DeChambeau blew all expectations out of the water with three wins and more than $8 million. The next step, of course, is a major, but whether he wins one this season, it will be tough to top what he accomplished last season. As such, he's not an option in salary cap formats. In draft formats he's a first-round pick.
If not for Jon Rahm, DeChambeau may have been the most hyped young player on the PGA Tour this past season. That gives you an idea of how highly those in the golf world think of DeChambeau. Though he started slowly last season, he managed to find his game at the John Deere Classic where he picked up his first career PGA Tour win. Though he failed to record a top-10 the rest of the season, he didn't fall off the map like some guys do after their first big win. With that in mind, DeChambeau holds plenty of value entering this season.
Here's the thing about DeChambeau: the dude's legit, but this is going to be a tough road for him. Yes, he nearly won the RBC Heritage in his first week on Tour but then he struggled, big time, missing four straight cuts. He admitted that he overprepared and worked too hard, perhaps expected considering the angles (figuratively and literally) at which he looks at golf. The man whose irons are the same length firmly believes he has the power to change golf -- and he very well might. Kudos to him for winning the DAP Championship in a playoff, the first Tour Finals event, to clinch his PGA Tour card. But getting acclimated to the traveling grind and learning all the golf courses on tour won't be easy - it's not even for the best -- and it wouldn't surprise if it takes the better part of a season for DeChambeau to work his way into a groove. That might not be a bust in a golf fan's eyes but in the eyes of a fantasy player it might not be good enough.
