2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Rodgers first appeared on the PGA Tour as a non-member in 2015 and by the time the season was over, he had earned enough points to gain full membership for the following season. Since then, he's remained comfortably inside the top-125 each season and he's even shown signs of improvement from year to year. He had a set back last season when he was forced to sit out four months due to a hand injury. Even with the missed time, he finished safely inside the top-125. Rodgers should continue to improve this season, but his upside is still in question. Read Past Outlooks
Disappointing weekend effort in Minnesota
July 27, 2020
Rodgers closed with a one-under 70 on Sunday at the 3M Open to finish 10-under and tied for 32nd.
ANALYSIS
Rodgers failed to break 70 in each of his two weekend rounds at TPC Twin Cities to ultimately fall outside of the top-25, though he still ranked seventh in scrambling and fifth in driving distance. Rodgers, who sits 71st in the FedEx Cup standings, has made the cut in three of his last four starts heading into the Barracuda Championship.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
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.
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.
