Past Fantasy Outlooks
To say Kizzire got off to a good start last season would be an understatement. Kizzire picked-up his first PGA Tour win during the fall portion of the scheduled and he grabbed his second win of the season just a couple months later at the Sony Open in January. From there, a predictable drop in production befell Kizzire as he posted only one top-10 for the remainder of the season. Last season was just his third on the PGA Tour and considering he had yet to win in his first two seasons, it's understandable that he might let off the gas after picking up two wins within the span of a few months. Kizzire obviously set a career-high in earnings last season and as such, he's not a good salary cap option this season. Expect Kizzire to come back to Earth a bit this season, but not so much that he's fighting to stay in the top-125.
Kizzire got off to a great start during the fall portion of the season, when he carded a runner-up finish at the Safeway Open, but what followed was a pattern of extreme highs and lows for the remainder of the season. Kizzire managed a total of three top-10s last season, including another top-5 at the Zurich Classic, but he also missed the cut in half of his 28 starts. Kizzire entered this past season off of a solid rookie campaign where he earned more than $1.4 million, but made 20 cuts in 27 starts, which is what really made the difference between his first and second seasons. Kizzire could improve this season, but he's yet to show much of an upside, so a salary cap selection is not in the cards this season.
Every season there are a handful of rookies that look really impressive and every off-season after that, the speculation begins on whether they are legit or not. Kizzire looks legit as he showed a high-level of consistency for a rookie, as evidence by his five top-10s last season. He hit the wall towards the end of the season, but that's not uncommon. Kizzire should improve this season, but how much is the question. He shouldn't regress, so the risk is limited, and the upside should be high as well, which makes him a pretty solid salary cap option this year. In draft leagues, he should be a 7th-round pick.
