Emiliano Grillo
26-Year-Old Golfer
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Grillo has spent three seasons on the PGA Tour and he's fared well in all three. He's also only 26, which means he should be entering his peak pretty soon. If that's the case, Grillo should be in for some really big seasons soon. Grillo's best season was his first, when he picked-up his first win and more than $3 million in earnings. Although he peaked in his rookie season three years ago, he hasn't exactly embarrassed himself the last two seasons. In his rookie season, Grillo struck the ball very well, but couldn't putt. He somehow figured out how to putt last season and he still struck the ball as well. His stats would indicate that he had a great season last year, but the earnings number would beg to differ. That said, if he continues to putt well, he'll get the results. Grillo comes at a steep price this season, but he just might be worth it. Read Past Outlooks
T52 at Farmers Insurance Open
January 28, 2019
Grillo carded a one-over 73 on Sunday at the Farmers Insurance Open to finish four-under and tied for 52nd.
ANALYSIS
Grillo was hindered by a lousy performance with the flat stick throughout the week at Torrey Pines, ranking just 74th out of 77 in SG: Putting. He'll remain inside of the top-20 in the FedExCup standings, however, while he currently resides at No. 48 in the OWGR. Grillo will tee it up again this week at TPC Scottsdale where he's made the cut in all three of his appearances, but has never finished better than T45.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Grillo was fantastic in his rookie season of 2015-16 , capturing his first win and amassing more than $3 million in earnings. While his performance last season was good, it was nowhere near the standard he set in his rookie season and therefore, it felt like he underachieved. It's always difficult to judge a guy with just two seasons under his belt, and two very different seasons to boot. The good thing here is that Grillo's price for the upcoming season is relatively cheap when you consider he topped the $3 million mark just two years ago and as such, he's a good salary cap option this season.
Grillo wasted no time in acclimating to the PGA Tour last season. In his first full season on the PGA Tour, Grillo picked-up one win, one runner-up showing and perhaps most impressive for a rookie, he made the cut in 22 of his 25 starts. The future is certainly bright for Grillo, but this is another case where the bar is simply set too high for the upcoming season. Whether it will be a standard regression or a sophomore slump, something will keep Grillo from improving significantly on his number from last season. In draft leagues, he's a risky third-round pick because of the unknown, but a safe fourth-round pick.
