Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Danny Willett
Francesco Molinari's newfound short-game prowess and recent form make him an intriguing value play in FanDuel contests at The Masters.
A red-hot Rory McIlroy's chances of completing the Career Grand Slam at The Masters are as good as ever, and he finds himself among Bryce Danielson's picks to click in this week's contests on Yahoo.
Rickie Fowler has his eyes on his first Green Jacket this week, and Len Hochberg has his eye on Fowler as he sets the stage for this week's contests on DraftKings.
Len Hochberg ranks the field for the season's first major. Outside of 2017's fluke injury, Dustin Johnson has thrived at Augusta, and should do so again.
Tiger Woods will play in the Match Play tournament for the first time since 2013, and with a relatively favorable draw, he lands in this week's recommendations for contests on DraftKings.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Willett did not play frequently enough on Tour last year to retain his card, so he will only be eligible for certain tournaments despite winning the Masters in 2016. That is the last tournament the Englishman has won, as he has been beset by back woes and what appears to be a Masters hangover. Willett was 224th in points across 11 events, making the cut only five times with two WDs and zero top-25s. He'll still be in all the majors, the only guy on this list who can say that. But by having fallen from 11th in the OWGR at the beginning of 2017 to outside the top-60 now, he'll have to play his way into WGCs. Keep an eye out. There are still a bunch of European Tour events left this season. One good finish at some fall season event worldwide could vault him into the top-50 OWGR. For instance, last season, Willett had two top-6s in Asia late in 2016 before his game completely fell apart.
Willett's season was basically one outstanding performance at the Masters and a whole lot of nothing after that. It's certainly understandable if Willett lost focus after his life-changing win at Augusta, but the true test will come this season as expectations are raised and excuses are thrown-out the door. Willett's win at Augusta was a surprise, but it's not like he was a complete unknown at the time. He was a good player before that win and he's still a quality golfer, but it's not unprecedented for a golfer to win a major and never look the same after that. Will that be the fate of Willett? With so many questions entering this season, he's not worth the risk in salary cap formats. In drafts he should go in the fifth or sixth round.
