Past Fantasy Outlooks
Riley really became a DFS darling over the spring months after a slow start to his rookie season. After falling in a playoff at the Valspar Championship to Sam Burns, Riley had a stretch of six straight finishes of T13-or-better. He would only post one top-25 over his final seven starts, however, and fall just outside that Top-30 that qualify for East Lake. Really the only weakness here appears to be short game, as he ranked outside the top-115 in SG: Around-the-Green and scrambling. If he cleans that up a bit, Riley has the potential to take off as a sophomore because he's long, a solid iron player, and a stout putter who ranked inside the top-15 in birdie average.
Riley is a former junior golf prodigy, who won four consecutive state titles in Mississippi before attending the University of Alabama where he became a two-time All-American. He recorded just one top-10 in 18 starts during his first year on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2019, but Riley picked up a pair of victories in 2020-21 at the Panama Championship and the TPC San Antonio Championship at the Oaks. Riley has slipped outside the top 300 in the Official World Golf Ranking, however, failing to notch a top-10 finish since May's AdventHealth Championship.
It didn't take much time for the three-time collegiate All-American from the University of Alabama to outgrow the Korn Ferry Tour as he notched a pair of wins at the Panama Championship and TPC San Antonio Championship in 2020. The 23-year-old tallied five top-10s and nine top-25s in 16 events to finish second on the KFT's points list at the conclusion of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship. Riley also made a pair of cuts at the PGA Tour level during the fall series, placing 76th at the RSM Classic and T39 at the Sanderson Farms Championship. On the Korn Ferry Tour, he was second in birdie average and first in the all-around ranking.
