Patrick Rodgers
26-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
In his rookie season if 2013, Rodgers earned over $1 million in just 17 events. While he's improved upon that earnings number in each of his past three seasons, that's only due to his beefed-up schedule. Rodgers has averaged over 28 events during the past three seasons, but his earnings have gone up roughly $300k per season. Simple match would put that average per tourney around $30k and that's just not good enough. Rodgers has every right to improve and at just 26 years of age, he probably will get better, but to expect a significant jump this season is too much. Read Past Outlooks
Falls off pace on Sunday
February 18, 2019
Rodgers closed with a one-over 72 at the Genesis Open to take home a share of 15th place.
ANALYSIS
Rodgers made two eagles and 11 birdies over his first 37 holes, but had just five over the final 35 holes to go along with eight bogeys and a double. It should be noted, however, that conditions were much more difficult on a Sunday where most of the field played 30+ holes. Overall, Rodgers was led by his putter which ranked top-15 in SG: Putting and putts per GIR. The Stanford product closed out 2018 with a runner-up at the RSM Classic, but had missed the cut in each of his four starts in 2019 before this week. Rodgers will not be in the field for the WGC-Mexico Championship.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
One of these years, Rodgers is going to break out. The same thing was likely said prior to last season and the break out obviously did not take place, but at just 25 years of age, Rodger's best golf is still in front of him. Last season was not a great one for Rodgers as a big chunk of his earnings came from one runner-up showing at the John Deere Classic. Outside of that showing, Rodgers didn't accomplish much as he ended the year with only three top-10s. There's not a lot to point to in the numbers that suggest Rodgers is close to a break out season, but he passes the eye test and at his current salary, it doesn't take much to find a place for him on a salary cap roster.
Any time a golfer earns his card via an in-season method, he's going to get noticed and that's what happened with Patrick Rodgers two seasons ago when he earned a spot on the PGA Tour in only 17 starts as a non-member. With that attention come expectations though and unfortunately, Rodgers did not live up to the hype in year-one. The good news is, he played well enough to retain his status for the upcoming season and give it another go. Rodgers has a ton of upside and his price is in a great spot for the upcoming season. He's not a "must-have" in salary cap leagues, but he's close to that status. In drafts he should go near the seventh round.
