2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
It's amazing what one high-end finish can do for a guy on the PGA Tour. In Ryder's case, his high-end finish came in the form of a runner-up at the John Deere Classic. He also carded a top-5 at the Houston Open, but behind those two starts, it was mostly a struggle for Ryder. Ryder started 26 times last season and managed only three top-25s. As for the positives, Ryder played fairly well down the stretch, especially when compared to the first-half of his season. Ryder will be a guy to keep an eye on in the fall. If he plays well, he'll make for a good salary cap option for those starting in January. For those starting this fall, he's a coin flip and probably carries a little too much risk at this point.

T34 finish at 3M Open
July 9, 2019
Ryder fired a five-under 66 on Sunday at the 3M Open to post a tie for 34th place.
ANALYSIS
Ryder only made one bogey in the final round to go along with six birdies. He finished top-20 in scrambling and greens hit in regulation at the TPC Twin Cities. Ryder is still looking for his first top-25 since since the fall portion of the schedule when he actually had two top-five's. He will tee it up at the John Deere Classic.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
A dominant, eight-stroke victory at the Web.com's Pinnacle Bank Championship in July combined with four additional top-five finishes vaulted Ryder up to No. 2 on the 2017 money list, thus earning a PGA Tour card for the first time in his career. Through 23 events on the Web.com Tour this past season, Ryder made 16 cuts to go along with 10 top-25s, but missed the cut on his biggest stage at the U.S. Open after earning medalist honors with a 62 at his sectional qualifier. The 27-year-old won't have experience on his side, but harnesses enough game to compete at the next level as a rookie, having ranked first in total driving and third in ball striking on the Web.com Tour.
