Past Fantasy Outlooks
Rollins spent eight consecutive seasons above the $1 million mark on the PGA Tour, but something went horribly wrong last year. At this point, there's no information regarding his playing status for the upcoming season, but he should find a way to get into plenty of events in the 2014-15 season.
Rollins is probably never going to take the next step in his development, but that's okay. He's had a very respectable career and at this point, he is what he is. He's going to grab a handful of top-10s each year, maybe contend a couple times, but his ceiling is maxed-out around this level. If he finds his game early, he could sneak into the top-50, but even that means only a small increase on his 2013 number. In draft leagues Rollins should go in the 70-80 range.
Rollins played pretty well last season - when he made the cut. Unfortunately, he missed the cut too often last year. Of his 26 starts, he missed the cut 11 times. Once past the cut line, though, he did some damage on the weekend. In total, he cracked the top 15 nine times. He didn't have many high-end finishes, though, which is why his number in near $1.5 million. Rollins has the potential to earn much more than he did last year, but we haven't seen that type of game from him in a while. It's probably wise to pass on Rollins this season in salary cap formats. In draft leagues, he's a sixth- or seventh-round pick.
Though Rollins has made a couple trips into the $2 million club over the past decade, he's spent most of his time in the mid-$1 million range. That's where he found himself last year as he just missed out at the Travelers Championship. A win there and he's back in the $2 million club. That just goes to show you how close the line is between good and really good. Rollins has been highly touted for years, but it seems like he'll never quite get to the next level. There's a chance that he could again join the $2 million club this season, but his recent history tells us that he'll again find himself back in the mid-$1 range this season.
Rollins appears destined to be an enigma. He's shown a baffling on-again/off-again pattern the last five years, frustrating many fantasy owners. The good news for Rollins is he's due to be on again this season because he barely cracked $1 million last year. When he's on, he could be double his earnings from last year, so the potential is there. At a decent price, it's probably wise to take a shot on Rollins in 2011. Rollins goes as his putter goes. When he's in the top 100, he makes more than $2 million; when he's sub-100, he makes little more than $1 million. He's consistently long off the tee, however, and his GIR is usually pretty solid.
The record shows that Rollins played 27 events on the PGA TOUR last season, but what it doesn't show is that he only showed up for four of those events. OK, so technically he showed up for all 27, but 80 percent of his earnings came from four events. Rollins is a good player, but you aren't going to get week-in, week-out results from him. There will be many frustrating weeks of little to nothing before he finally comes up big. Certainly not the type of player you want to see in this spot on the money list.
Last season was a disappointing year for John Rollins. He steadily worked his way up to a career high in earnings in 2007, but failed to back that up in 2008. Rollins simply had an off year. He showed during the previous few years that he's a solid player, and for whatever reason things just didn't line up for him last season.
Rollins started coming into his own early on in the 2007 season, but he faded after the first few months and now we are left wondering just how good he is. Rollins has never been accused of being consistent, but one trend that's appeared over the last couple years is his ability to play well early in the year. That's not always a good thing however as there are certain players on tour that play well on the West Coast swing, but do nothing else the rest of the way. This year will go a long way in determining what type of player Rollins is, and until that is settled, it's best let someone else take a chance on him.
Rollins is going to show up a handful of times each year. The problem is you never know when. Last year he started well with a couple top-10s early on and it looked like the old inconsistent Rollins was gone. Several consecutive missed cuts later, we had him back. Then, of course, he pulls a win out at the B.C. Open, which might be the weakest field all year. But, hey, a win is a win. The point is, there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to how he plays. Players like that on your team will drive you nuts all year. Chances are he'll play some good golf in 2007, but during which weeks? Who knows.
Rollins earned about $1.9 million in 2002 and that was largely based on a September win. Last year he showed up here and there, but could only manage three top-five finishes in 27 tries. He also missed the cut 10 times in 27 tries. We still think that he has the potential to win a couple of the lower end tourneys in 2004.
