Past Fantasy Outlooks
Despite a top-40 ranking in the OWGR, Fleetwood wasn't able to make the playoffs for the first time since gaining status on tour. His best results tend to come on the European Tour, although since The Masters in April, he failed to record a worldwide top-10 in 12 starts. Considering his putter was the main culprit in his inconsistency, a bounce-back season is likely.
Fleetwood had gained a lot of momentum over the past couple season and then the pandemic hit and everything stopped for him. Fleetwood was one of a few players that did not resume playing on the PGA Tour after the resumption of play in June and if really impacted his overall numbers. Fleetwood joins the pack of guys you probably need to take in salary cap formats this upcoming season though as his number is really low and there's no reason to think he can't get back to his 2018-2019 levels this season.
Fleetwood's claim to fame to this point in his career is his ability to contend at high-profile events. Contend, but not win though. Fleetwood has shown glimpses of elite talent in his two years on the PGA Tour, but he's yet to cross the finish line first. With that said, his numbers in his first two seasons have been very impressive. If he were to pick-up a victory at some point, which he will inevitably will, he could crack $5 million in earnings. With that said, it's tough to significantly improve on a number such as Fleetwood's, especially when you are playing less than 20 events. As such, he's not a great salary cap option this season, but he has a lot of upside in other formats.
Fleetwood was one of the bigger surprises of the 2017-18 season. Fleetwood gained some attention with a top-5 at the 2017 U.S. Open, but it wasn't until last season that most golf fans became aware of how good he was. Fleetwood made a mad dash at the 2018 U.S. Open with a final-round 63, only to come up just short. That wasn't the only time he impressed though. Fleetwood totaled six top-10s throughout the season and missed just one cut in 19 starts. Perhaps most impressive, Fleetwood finished inside the top-25 in 15 of his 19 starts. Fleetwood looks like the real deal, but as is the case with all golfers that have a breakout season, it's nearly impossible to take him in a salary cap format. Fleetwood earned nearly $4 million last season in just 19 starts. He'll have to win at least one time this season to significantly improve upon his number from last season, all the while playing at level similar to last season. Fleetwood has the potential to make much more money this season vs. last season, but the risk seems a bit too high.
Fleetwood showed last season that he can compete on the biggest stages in the world. He won twice (Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, Open de France), finished second twice (WGC-Mexico Championship, Shenzhen International) and had five other top-12 finishes, including a T4 at the U.S. Open, which earned him his 2017-18 PGA Tour card after playing last season on Special Temporary Member status. Fleetwood, who ranked first in greens in regulation on the European Tour, enters this season 17th in the OWGR rankings and is the leader in the Race to Dubai.
