Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Nick Taylor
A rested Phil Mickelson could have something to prove after missing the cut here last year, and that's just one of the reasons he finds himself listed among this week's picks to click on DraftKings.
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.
Our Best Values rankings will help fantasy owners draft players who will significantly out-earn last year's money totals, like Jhonattan Vegas.
The RotoWire golf crew projected 2018-19 earnings for more than 200 golfers who have PGA Tour cards for this season. Will Dustin Johnson be the leading money winner?
Greg Vara ranks the 2018-19 golfers with projected earnings and season outlooks, as Justin Thomas is in the conversation of best golfer alive.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Taylor earned his spot inside the top-100 by recording three top-10s in the span of seven events, but he flamed-out at the end of the season, missing the cut in three of his final five events. On the positive side, his four top-10s were a career high as was his 20 cuts made. Taylor appears to be trending upward, but the question is – how fast can he improve. His number from last season is not too much of a burden, so he's certainly a guy that you can take a chance on in salary cap leagues.
Taylor is exempt by virtue of winning the 2014 Sanderson Farms, which is looking like an aberration. He had only one top-10 last season, in the alternate-field Puerto Rico Open. Nothing indicates a more successful season ahead.
Of the guys who made it through via the Web.com Tour Finals, Taylor might have the best story of them all. Dewsweeping in one of the first groups out, Taylor shot a 63 on the Dye Valley course at TPC Sawgrass in the final round of the Web.com Tour Championship to clinch his card, capping off a season in which he had no top-5 finishes but three top-30 finishes in the Web.com Tour Finals that gave him enough money to get a PGA Tour card. 11 missed cuts in 24 starts certainly doesn’t have a nice look to it, and a Reshuffle List of 34th will make the road tougher, but that 63 did show that this guy has a lot of moxie.
