Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Abraham Ancer
Brooks Koepka has owned the U.S. Open in recent years, and that earns him a prominent position in Len Hochberg's latest list of golfers going after a major championship.
Greg Vara has a hunch about Tony Finau this week, and he highlights him in his analysis of the upcoming event at Colonial.
Gary Woodland has been dialed in with his irons of late, and Bryce Danielson believes that makes him a golfer to go after this week on Yahoo.
Collin Morikawa got the job done last year at Colonial, and Len Hochberg believes he will do the same in this week's contests on DraftKings.
Distance will be the name of the game at the PGA Championship, so it should shock no one that the longest hitter of all-time, Bryson DeChambeau, leads Len Hochberg's list of contenders for the Wanamaker Trophy.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
To say Ancer's career on the PGA Tour got off to a slow start, would be an understatement. Ancer missed the cut in his first nine starts in 2016 and although he went on to make the cut in six of his last 10 starts that season, he never found his footing. His second time around, however, went much better. Although he didn't miss his first nine cuts last season, he did get off to a bit of a slow start with only one top-25 in his first seven starts. Ancer, however, did more than find his footing over the final couple months of the season as he posted three top-10s in his final eight starts. Two of those were top-5s where he actually contended. Ancer held the 54-hole lead at the Dell Technologies Championship and although he faltered in the final round, it should end up being a quality learning experience. Ancer looks like the real deal and he should continue to improve, but how much he'll improve this season is the question. He's got some upside, but at this price, there's plenty of risk as well.
Ancer's rookie campaign on the PGA Tour during the 2015-16 season didn't go as planned, missing 13 of 19 cuts to ultimately finish 190th in the FedExCup standings and lose his card as a result. A solid bounceback effort on the Web.com Tour this past season included 18 of 23 made cuts and seven top-10s, placing third on the regular season money list and re-earning his PGA Tour card for 2017-18. Another bright spot for Ancer included a made cut during his lone start at the PGA Tour level, posting a T55 at the OHL Classic in November of 2016.
