Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Emiliano Grillo
Greg Vara previews this week's PGA Tour event in Mexico where Matt Kuchar hopes to get past 'caddie-gate' to repeat as champ.
Viktor Hovland may be unfamiliar with several courses the PGA Tour stops at, but not this week's in Mexico, which bodes well for his chances of returning value in DFS contests on DraftKings.
Webb Simpson has a sterling track record at TPC Summerlin, making him an easy pick to click in this week's contests on FanDuel.
Hideki Matsuyama has both course history and stats on his side this week, making him a golfer to target in the upcoming DFS contests on Yahoo.
Adam Scott closed last season on a tear, making him a good bet for success in this week's contests on FanDuel.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
