Patrick Rodgers
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
Sets lowest closing 36-hole score
November 18, 2018
Rodgers fired an eight-under 62 in the final round, but was defeated on the second playoff hole by Charles Howell at the RSM Classic.
ANALYSIS
After making the cut on the number, Rodgers went 61-62 on the weekend, setting the lowest closing 36-hole score in PGA Tour history. The Stanford product made 17 birdies and no bogeys over the weekend. Rodgers needed every one of those birdies to be able to set up a playoff with Charles Howell. Rodgers had a couple decent looks for birdies on the two playoff holes, but was unable to convert, while Howell rolled in a 20-footer on the second time down 18. This is the first top-five finish for Rodgers since he came in second back at the John Deere Classic in 2017. Consistency has often been an issue, but he is off to a good start through the fall portion of the schedule with top-25's in three of his first five starts.

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.
