2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Hadley got off to a nice start on the PGA Tour as a rookie in 2014 as he picked-up a victory in his first season and earned over $1.7 million by season's end. His Sophomore campaign wasn't quite as productive, but he managed to stay within the top-100 on the FedEx points list, but when the pressure was back on, in his third season, while playing for his card again, he fell flat, making under $600k for the season. He worked his way back onto the PGA Tour just two years later and had his best season yet. That season was the 2-17-2018 season where he posted a runner-up and 3rd-place finish and a total of seven top-10s. There's nothing negative to say about his performance last season, but he does have a track record of coming back to Earth after a solid season. With that in mind, he carries too much risk as a salary cap option this season. Read Past Outlooks
Bogey-free back nine
March 11, 2019
Hadley fired a two-under 70 on Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational to finish five-under and tied for 17th.
Hadley broke par in all four rounds at Bay Hill, but failed to finish top-15 due to a quadruple bogey on the par-5 sixth hole during Friday's second round. He gained nearly nine strokes approach, leading the field in this category en route to 48 total greens in regulation. Hadley has now posted top-20s in three of four starts heading into the PLAYERS Championship, where he finished T11 in 2018.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Hadley, who won the PGA Tour's 2014 Puerto Rico Open, racked up $2.8M in earnings through two seasons before losing his card after a 2015-16 campaign in which he finished 159th in the FedExCup standings. He'll be back to full status during the 2017-18 season, however, as two victories in his last six starts on the Tour have secured his card once again. Hadley also appeared in eight PGA Tour events throughout the 2016-17 season, notably placing top-30 in back-to-back starts at the John Deere Classic and Barbasol Championship.
Not a bad start to a PGA Tour career. Just over $1.7 million in earnings, a spot in the top-60 on the money list and a victory at the Puerto Rico Open. That's the good news, the bad news is, he was incredibly erratic last year. That and his win did come against a pretty weak field. With that said, he did finish strong against the best players on the PGA Tour, so there's hope that he can build off his fantastic rookie season. There is the sophomore jinx to consider as well, which isn't exactly a jinx, it's just a bit of reality setting in. Most guys who play well during their rookie season come back to earth, at least a bit during their second season. As such, he's not a great salary cap option this year, but should be given some consideration. In draft leagues he should go in the 6th or 7th round.
Hadley scored three top-3s on Tour last season but still needed The Finals to secure his card for 2013-14.
