28-Year-Old Golfer
2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Grillo set the bar pretty high as a rookie in 2013 as he picked-up an win and a runner-up finish on his way to over $3.3 million in earnings. He predictably fell-off a bit the following season, but bounced-back quite nicely in his third season. This past season, his fourth, Grillo's game again fell-off. It wasn't a dramatic drop in production, but it didn't exactly clear-up his situation. Grillo appears to have the potential to be a 2nd-tier guy, but his consistency is lacking. He's worth a look in salary cap formats, but he's no better than a coin flip. Read Past Outlooks
Loses 54-hole lead on Sunday
December 6, 2020
Grillo fell into a tie for eighth place after shooting a one-over 72 in the final round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic.
Grillo looked so in control all week, then just could not get anything to go his way on Sunday. He lost the 54-hole lead and had the worst score of any player that finished inside the top-40 of the tournament. Grillo will have to wait until 2021 to bounce back, but he will close out the fall portion of the schedule having made 7-of-8 cuts and three top-25's.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Grillo has spent three seasons on the PGA Tour and he's fared well in all three. He's also only 26, which means he should be entering his peak pretty soon. If that's the case, Grillo should be in for some really big seasons soon. Grillo's best season was his first, when he picked-up his first win and more than $3 million in earnings. Although he peaked in his rookie season three years ago, he hasn't exactly embarrassed himself the last two seasons. In his rookie season, Grillo struck the ball very well, but couldn't putt. He somehow figured out how to putt last season and he still struck the ball as well. His stats would indicate that he had a great season last year, but the earnings number would beg to differ. That said, if he continues to putt well, he'll get the results. Grillo comes at a steep price this season, but he just might be worth it.
Grillo was fantastic in his rookie season of 2015-16 , capturing his first win and amassing more than $3 million in earnings. While his performance last season was good, it was nowhere near the standard he set in his rookie season and therefore, it felt like he underachieved. It's always difficult to judge a guy with just two seasons under his belt, and two very different seasons to boot. The good thing here is that Grillo's price for the upcoming season is relatively cheap when you consider he topped the $3 million mark just two years ago and as such, he's a good salary cap option this season.
Grillo wasted no time in acclimating to the PGA Tour last season. In his first full season on the PGA Tour, Grillo picked-up one win, one runner-up showing and perhaps most impressive for a rookie, he made the cut in 22 of his 25 starts. The future is certainly bright for Grillo, but this is another case where the bar is simply set too high for the upcoming season. Whether it will be a standard regression or a sophomore slump, something will keep Grillo from improving significantly on his number from last season. In draft leagues, he's a risky third-round pick because of the unknown, but a safe fourth-round pick.
