Branden Grace
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
In 2016, Grace picked-up a win at the RBC Heritage, and top-5s at the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship. As a European Tour regular, who played just around the minimum number of events on the PGA Tour to stay eligible, it was about the best anyone could have hoped for out of him. In the two years since, Grace has not won, nor has he finished in the top-5 at a major, which is why his earnings have dropped each season. Grace is a fine golfer, who has the World Golf Ranking that allows him access to the biggest events, but unless he's going to win or contend at a major, his upside will be limited. As such, his value as a salary cap option is not nearly as high as his value in other formats. Read Past Outlooks
T7 in South Africa
December 10, 2018
Grace carded a one-under 70 on Sunday at the South African Open to finish nine-under and tied for seventh.
Grace struggled a bit with bogey avoidance against a weak field on his home soil, but managed to rack up 19 birdies and three eagles in 72 holes on the way to his top-10 result. The 49th-ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking should be an early favorite again this week at the Alfred Dunhill Championship where he won in 2014.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
With just more than $1.3 million in earnings and only two top-10s, it was certainly not a great year for Grace, but there is a lot of opportunity here. Grace earned more than $2.8 million during the 2015-16 season, so the upside is certainly there and his World Golf Ranking is currently 37th, which means he'll have access to the biggest events next season. All of which adds up to a nice salary cap option this season. Grace is not a workhorse on the PGA Tour, but he did up his events played from 18 to 20 last season, so if he's in that neighborhood again this season, he should easily top his number from last season.
In his first full year on the PGA Tour, Grace not only doubled his previous high earnings number, but he also picked-up his first win and possibly more impressive, finished in the top-10 in 33% of his starts. Entering last season, Grace was a sneaky-good selection in salary cap leagues because his price was just below $1.5 million. That's not the case this year though as his price is nearly doubled heading into this season. As such, he's no longer a good salary cap option, but does provide value in a draft league -- somewhere in the fourth round.
