Harris English
29-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Harris English? Believe it or not, a few years ago, English was among a group of young elite golfers on the PGA Tour that were destined for greatness. While many from that group have taken their games to the next level, English has actually regressed in recent years. English peaked in 2014 when he earned almost $3 million, but his numbers have fallen off since then. The past two years have seen a dramatic drop-off from his peak of 2014 as he's failed to even crack the $1 million mark. English now has four solid seasons under his belt and two less than stellar seasons. The problem is, those two subpar seasons are his two most recent. While English has a higher ceiling than most golfers who finish around 125th on the FedEx list, there aren't any indications that he's about to find his old form again. As such, English is a just a decent salary cap option this season. Read Past Outlooks
T25 at RBC Heritage
April 22, 2019
English closed with a two-under 69 on Sunday at the RBC Heritage to finish in a tie for 25th place.
English started his final round hot with birdies on three of his first four holes. His progress would slow from that point on, however, as he made two bogeys and just one birdie the rest of the round. English's short game was key at Harbour Town, as he ranked sixth in SG: Around and T4 in scrambling. Ball striking is where English needs improvement, as he sits outside the top-160 in SG: Off-the-tee and SG: Approach on tour. English now has three top-25 finishes in 17 starts this season. He will team up with Johnson Wagner at the Zurich Classic.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
English had a productive rookie season in 2012 and he was very productive in the years that followed, but for some reason, his play regressed last season. It was English's first sub-$1 million season since becoming a full-time member in 2012. English's season started well, with a top-5 at the Shriners, but he was unable to get much done in 2017. English has never been accurate off the tee, but last season was a new low as he ranked 186th on the PGA Tour. He'll need to address that and if he improves just a little, it could result in a big uptick in earnings. As such, he's worth a long look in salary cap leagues this season.
English has been on the PGA Tour for five years and in that time, he's never fallen below the $1 million mark in earnings. He's been extremely consistent on the PGA Tour, with two wins, two runner-ups and two third-place finishes. English peaked in 2014, when he nearly topped $3 million in earnings, but he's fallen-off that pace the past two seasons. The question entering this season is, will be continue his recent trajectory and remain near the $2 million mark or will be bounce-back to his 2014 form. It's a bit of a risk at this price, but English looks like a perfect bounce-back candidate this season and as such, he makes a pretty good salary cap option this year. In drafts, he should go in the fourth or fifth round.
English is certainly on the way up in his career, the question is, how high can he go? He started fast on the PGA Tour three years ago when he topped the $1 million mark in his first season. He followed that up with a very nice sophomore campaign where he earned over $2 million. He couldn't quite crack the $3 million mark in his third season, but he came close. We know he's good, but can he keep up this trend? Maybe the better question is, is there any reason he'll regress this year? The answer is no. As such, he's a high-risk/high-reward salary cap option this year. In drafts he could go as early as the 2nd round.
English took a step up in class last year when he won the St. Jude Classic and topped the $2 million dollar mark, but for fantasy purposes, this could be a case where he set the bar too high. On a positive note, he's already picked up a win in the 2013-2014 portion of the schedule, so perhaps he's ascending to the next level. Whatever the case, he's probably priced a little too high for salary cap consideration. In draft leagues he should probably go in the 25-35 range.
English didn't exactly make a splash during his rookie season on the PGA TOUR, but he did show a lot of consistency, especially for a first-year player. English teed it up 27 times last year and missed only five cuts. Although he only cracked the top 5 once last season, he posted 10 top-25 finishes. The future appears bright for English, and at his price, he's probably worth a shot in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues, he should probably go in the sixth or seventh round.
For those keeping track, English enters the PGA TOUR just six spots behind Briny Baird on the Official World Golf Ranking list. So how did a rookie even find himself on this list? Well, Harris won his third start on the Nationwide Tour last season - as an amateur He turned pro just after that victory and had more success, including a runner-up finish and a third-place finish. In all, he had three Top-3s in only seven starts. English looks like a quality player and has the potential to do some damage on the PGA Tour this season.
