The Outlook

Schauffele will be a popular play this week after a strong showing at the last major. His number has crashed over the past couple months from the triple-digit range to the mid-40s. I’m not on him at that number. I just rarely find my way onto Xander. He never really pops up for me, and, at that number, I might be looking more at other options.


The Metrics

Here’s how Schauffele ranks in the PGA Championship field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
