Latest Player Updates

Pat Perez

Pat Perez brushed off any concerns over an injury, as he finished at 14-under par to place T8 at the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico. Perez shot rounds of 68-65-68-69.

Fantasy Impact: Perez was coming off a withdrawal at the Houston Open, so he was not a popular DFS play this week despite his very strong course history at the Mayakoba Classic. He is one of the best Par 4 scorers in the game, and has been rolling it very well on the greens of late. Perez will not be in the field for the RSM Classic next week.

Billy Horschel

Billy Horschel turned in his second top-10 performance of the new season, finishing at 14-under par to tie for eighth at the Mayakoba Classic. Horschel shot rounds of 65-71-66-68.

Fantasy Impact: Horschel was one of the betting favorites heading into the week, and one of the highest-priced golfers on DFS. Expect much of the same this week at the RSM Classic, as Horschel remains one of the games' elite golfers and should pay off his price-tag once again.

Abraham Ancer

Abraham Ancer had an impressive showing in his home country this past week at the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico. He shot rounds of 66-72-65-67 to finish at 14-under par and tie for 8th.

Fantasy Impact: This was the second straight top-10 finish for Ancer, as he is still in search for his first ever PGA Tour victory. If not for a rough second round where he shot a one-over 72, he would have been right in the mix this week. Ancer is not listed in the field for next weeks' RSM Classic, so his first win will have to wait another time.

Robby Shelton

Robby Shelton had a solid showing at the Mayakoba Classic this past week in Mexico, finish at 15-under to tie for sixth. Shelton shot rounds of 66-66-72-65 for his first top-5 finish of the 2019-20 season.

Fantasy Impact: Shelton just joined the PGA Tour this season, and already has two top-10 finishes. He gains a lot of his strokes off the tee and has a very strong short-iron game. This was a nice bounce-back for Shelton, as he had missed the cut in his two previous events.

Joel Dahmen

Joel Dahmen shot a six-under 65 on the final day of the Mayakoba Classic to climb the leaderboard and finish tied for sixth. Dahmen finished the tournament at 15-under par after firing rounds of 69-69-66-65.

Fantasy Impact: Dahmen caught fire on the weekend, and almost found a way in the top five this week. He is a streaky golfer, but if his putter catches fire like it did in Mexico, he can't score with the best of them. Dahmen's form is looking great this season, with two top-10s already. He ranks 7th in strokes gained: tee-to-green, in 2019-20.

Harris English

Harris English finished at 17-under par to place fifth at the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico. English was in contention for the majority of the weekend, but struggled on Monday - shooting just one-under to finish three strokes behind Brendon Todd. English shot rounds of 65-64-68-70 for his fourth top-10 finish of the season.

Fantasy Impact: English was a very popular DFS play and was backed by many in the betting community this past week. He was a prior winner at the event, and was going into the tournament in excellent form. English is fourth in strokes gained: total, this season.

Adam Long

Adam Long shot rounds of 63-69-67-66 to finish at 19-under par and tie for second at the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico. This was already Long's fourth top-25 finish of the 2019-20 season.

Fantasy Impact: Long is playing some excellent golf of late. He has made the cut in all six of the events he has participated in and just came close to his second career PGA victory. Long ranks 18th in strokes gained: approach, and 18th in strokes gained: tee-to-green, this season.

Carlos Ortiz

Carlos Ortiz had a solid showing in his home country of Mexico this past week, as he finished at 19-under par to tie for second at the Mayakoba Classic. Ortiz shot rounds of 69-65-65-66 for his second top-5 of the 2019-20 season.

Fantasy Impact: Ortiz finished T4 at the Houston Open last month, so his form is looking great this season. It would have been quite the feel good story to get the job done in his home nation, but he ultimately fell short to a red-hot Brendon Todd. Ortiz ranks 5th in strokes gained: around-the-green, and 20th in strokes gained: tee-to-green, this season.

Vaughn Taylor

Vaughn Taylor shot rounds of 64-66-67-68 to finish at 19-under par and tie for second at the Mayakoba Classic. Taylor finished in a three-way tie for second, and one stroke off the winner, Brendon Todd.

Fantasy Impact: This was Taylor's first top-5 finish of the 2019-20 season, and his first top-10 placing since the Travelers Championship in June. The 43-year-old is one of the most accurate drivers of the golf ball, and scores extremely well on Par 4s. This was a course that suit his eye, and he will look to carry the momentum next week at the RSM Classic.

Brendon Todd

Brendon Todd was once again victorious this past week in Mexico, as he finished at 20-under par to win the Mayakoba Classic. Todd shot rounds of 63-68-65-68 for his third career PGA title and second win of the 2019-20 season.

Fantasy Impact: It has been some kind of season for Todd, who had no top-10 finishes on Tour last season. He won the Bermuda Championship a couple weeks ago, and followed it up with another win in Mexico. There was a point in his career, just over a year ago, where he missed 37 of 40 cuts. This is a miraculous comeback story for Todd and he will look to carry the momentum going forward.

Jason Day

Jason Day continued his recent poor stretch of golf, as he missed the cut at the Mayakoba Classic by six strokes. Day shot rounds of 70 and 77 to finish at five-over par.

Fantasy Impact: Day is working hard to regain his world-class form that once put him into golfs’ elite. He hasn’t had a top-10 finish since the Travelers Championship in June, so it’s been a struggle for the worlds’ 29th ranked golfer. Proceed with caution playing Day in DFS.

Tony Finau

Tony Finau shot rounds of 70-74, to finish at two-over par and miss the cut at the Mayakoba Classic by three strokes.

Fantasy Impact: Finau’s golf game seems to be a little off at the moment. His last time out, he finished T53 at the World Golf Championships, and he placed T59 at the Zozo Championship the week prior. Finau had pretty solid course history at this event, with a couple top-30 finishes. Wait until Finau shows more consistency before rostering him going forward.

Viktor Hovland

For the second consecutive year, Viktor Hovland failed to make the cut at the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico. Hovland had a solid opening round, shooting a three-under 68, but struggled on Saturday, shooting a three-over 74.

Fantasy Impact: Hovland was one of the betting favorites heading into the event, so it is obviously surprising news for anyone who backed him. He is still one of the brightest young talents in the game, and will look to get back on track next week.

Danny Lee

Danny Lee shot a nine-under 62 on Friday to lead after round one of the Mayakoba Classic. Lee had eight birdies, one eagle, and one lone bogey on the day. The start of the tournament was delayed by a day due to weather conditions.

Fantasy Impact: Lee has been playing some outstanding golf of late. He finished 10th at the Zozo Championship in Japan last month, and second at the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges the week prior. Lee has always done well at this event, and he is well on his way to another outstanding finish.

Victor Perez

Victor Perez shot rounds of 65-71-71-66 to finish at 15-under and tie for fourth this past week at the World Golf Championship - HSBC Champions event in China.

Fantasy Impact: It was certainly surprising to see Perez’ name on the leaderboard on Sunday. He was not a popular play this week in DFS because he plays the majority of his events on the Euro Tour. He is now ranked 58th in the world after this performance, and Perez also has two top-20 finishes on the Euro Tour in his last three events.

Matthias Schwab

Matthias Schwab finished at 15-under par to tie for fourth at the World Golf Championship - HSBC Champions event in China. Schwab shot rounds of 67-71-69-66.

Fantasy Impact: One of the more surprising names that was found on the leaderboard, Schwab played brilliantly this past week in China. He is a 24-year-old from Austria who plays on the European Tour. He is ranked 102nd in the OWGR, so this was a big breakthrough for him. He also finished T4 at the Italian Open in October, so ride the hot form while it is there.

Paul Waring

Paul Waring turned in a surprise top-10 showing this past week, finishing at 12-under par to tie for eighth at the World Golf Championship - HSBC Champions in China. The Englishman had two incredible rounds of 65-66 to net him the top-10.

Fantasy Impact: Paul Waring was definitely not on many fantasy radars this past week. The 34-year-old plays the majority of his tournaments on the Euro Tour, so we are not accustomed to seeing him.

Jason Kokrak

Jason Kokrak finished at 12-under par to tie for eighth at the World Golf Championship - HSBC Champions event in China. Kokrak shot rounds of 69-70-66-71 for his first top-10 performance of the new season.

Fantasy Impact: Kokrak was priced in the 6K-range this week on Draftkings, so If you were able to mix him in with Rory or Xander, it’s likely you did well. He is a bomber off the tee, and this course suit him well with the long, scorable Par 5s. If his putter cooperates, Kokrak should find himself in the top-10 more often.

Patrick Reed

Patrick Reed turned in another top-20 performance on Tour, finishing in a tie for eighth at the World Golf Championship - HSBC Champions event in China. Reed shot a six-under 66 on Sunday to climb his way into the top-10.

Fantasy Impact: Reed is in excellent form of late. He finished T17 at the Zozo Championship last week in Japan, and followed it up with an eighth place showing in China. It was a profitable Asian swing for Reed, and a sign that he is close to regaining that form that once won him the Masters.

Matthew Fitzpatrick

Matthew Fitzpatrick shot rounds of 66-67-70-71 to finish at 14-under to finish in seventh at the World Golf Championship - HSBC Champions event in China. Fitzpatrick was the leader going into the weekend, but struggled to find any momentum, shooting just two-under on the final two days.

Fantasy Impact: This was Fitzpatrick’s second-straight top-10 finish at a WGC. The Englishman has improved tremendously off the tee in the last couple of years, and is usually one of the better putters on Tour.
