Hideki Matsuyama gets back on the course this week, and Ryan Andrade suggests including him in your FanDuel lineups right away.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Pan fared well in his first season on the PGA Tour two years ago as he won over $1.2 million and finished inside the top-100 on the season-ending FedEx points list. He backed-up that effort with an even better second season where he earned over $1.8 million and finished in the top-70 on the FedEx points list. The big reason for the increased production was his number of top-10s, which jumped from four to 10 in his second season. Pan has struggled on the greens in his first two seasons and it his improvement from year-one to year-two was due to better ball striking. The problem is, he already improved his ball striking last season, so he'll have to further increase it this season or somehow figure out how to putt. Neither will be easy, which means he's not a great salary cap option this season.
Pan missed more cuts than he made last season and he posted only three top-10s in 29 starts, but luckily for Pan, one of those top-10s was a runner-up showing at the Farmers Insurance Open. With only one PGA Tour season under his belt, there's simply no way to tell which way Pan will go in his second season. The missed cuts are certainly a concern as most guys in this range are at least making 60-70 percent of their cuts. As such, it would be wise to wait on Pan and see how he performs in year two.
If there's a sleeper in this bunch it's Pan. Another Olympian (T30), he had a whopping seven top-10s on the Web.com Tour this year, which got him a card even without a win. The best finish was a playoff loss at the LECOM Health Challenge. He was 15th in greens hit and ninth in putting average. Do that on the next level and he'll be headed back to more Olympics and find himself in the PGA Tour winner's circle too.
