Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Will MacKenzie
Webb Simpson brings course history and recent form to the table this week and is also the highest-ranked player in the field, so he is a natural selection for contests on Yahoo.
J.J. Spaun is getting the job done on the weekends of late and appears on the verge of victory, making him a player to target in this week's contests on FanDuel.
DraftKings is running contests for both tournaments on the PGA Tour this week, and Len Hochberg has his eye on Harold Varner in the alternate event.
Len Hochberg looks for gems in the bottom of the barrel among golfers who finished far out of the top 125 but still qualify for this season's PGA Tour. Don't forget Bill Haas.
Our Best Values rankings will help fantasy owners draft players who will significantly out-earn last year's money totals, like Jhonattan Vegas.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
MacKenzie is a two time PGA Tour winner, but his best season came in 2013-14, with five top-10s. He hasn't been able to match that in the past two years combined, while battling injuries. He was 151st in points last season, and it's hard to envision a finish inside the top-125 this season.
Mackenzie started the 2013 on fire, but as hot as he was at the beginning of the season, he ended the season even colder. All of which makes it almost impossible to gauge his prospects for this season. Coming into the season he was a tough player to peg because he'd shown some flashes, but he's also shown a tendency to disappear for long stretches. His price is reasonable for the upcoming season, but he's just too unreliable right now. In draft leagues he could go as early as the 6th or as late as the 9th round.
MacKenzie had solid finishes at the right times on Web.com Tour last season. He is a good bunker player.
After a strong start to the 2007 season, Will MacKenzie's story became well known. He gave up golf for 10 years and became an avid outdoorsman. What is interesting to me is the part about giving up golf for ten years. You have to wonder if he's still getting better. Is he still developing? If so, his upside could be really high. It's probably worth taking a shot at him at this price. For those in a draft league, MacKenzie could be a solid late round sleeper. In mid-May 2008 MacKenzie had knee surgery (badly torn meniscus) which will take him out of action from eight to 10 weeks. He returned to action in late June.
Classic case of a young player who can't putt, somehow finding the stroke one week during the year and winning. That's exactly what MacKenzie did last year. Mackenzie trudged along in his rookie season with little hope of avoiding Q-School when something funny happened, he won the Reno-Tahoe Open. Can you say Garrett Willis? With MacKenzie's card wrapped up through 2008, don't expect the urgency to be there in 2007.
