Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Joaquin Niemann
It's a stretch to expect a win from Rickie Fowler right now, but Ryan Pohle does like Fowler's chances to pay off a top-10 wager this week.
Joaquin Niemann has been a top-25 machine in recent months, and Len Hochberg likes his fit in DraftKings lineups this week.
With a birdie at the last, Kevin Na took home the Sony Open title and added his name to a star-studded list.
Kevin Kisner's course fit for Waialae Country Club accompanies multiple top-5 finishes at the venue since 2016, earning him a spot among Bryce Danielson's value picks in Yahoo contests this week.
Charles Howell III has played this event as well as anyone, and Ryan Andrade suggests looking his way in this week's contests on FanDuel.
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Priority Category No. 21 states that if a non-member in a season equals the number of points by the No. 125th-ranked golfer from the previous season, he gets a card for the next season. Niemann did that, so he has a card for 2018-19 and he potentially will have a significant impact. The still-not-20-year-old Chilean sensation played 13 tournaments, 12 as a pro after missing the cut at the Masters, and notched four top-10s and six top-25s. Only 36 guys had more top-10s, and Niemann had the same number as Rickie Fowler, Francesco Molinari, Brandt Snedeker and Ian Poulter, among others. Let's talk stats: Niemann ranked second in greens in regulation, 12th in strokes gained: off the tee, fifth in strokes gained: approach and 15th in both strokes gained: tee-to-green and total. That, gamers, is the real deal. He needs to work on his putting, which was middle of the road, and his scrambling, which was horrible. Niemann earned a little more than $1.2 million, which would've placed him 101st on the money list. But remember, he played only half a season. Double it and he'd have finished about 44th in earnings. And then if you think he can get better in his first full season on Tour, then maybe we're talking about top-30 and the Tour Championship for Niemann.
