2021–22 Fantasy Outlook
English hit the ground running as a rookie on the PGA Tour in 2012, but after a handful of successful years, he hit a rut in 2017. It took three years to pull out of that rut, but he did just that in 2020 when he earned more than $3 million for the first time. Big things were expected of English in the 2020-21 season, but not many could have predicted a $6 million season. English posted two wins and eight top-10s in what was easily his best season on the PGA Tour. With that said, English will have a tough time keeping up this pace. $6 million seasons are reserved for elite players and English, while talented, isn't at that level yet. He could get there, but adding him to a salary cap team in the hopes that it will be this year would be unwise. Read Past Outlooks
Top 20 at Travelers
June 27, 2022
English posted a four-day total of nine-under par and finished in a tie for 19th place at the Travelers Championship.
ANALYSIS
The defending Travelers champion hung around the leaderboard most of the week, carding rounds of 66, 65 and 69, but he stumbled to the finish with a Sunday 71. Nonetheless, TPC River Highlands is clearly a comfortable place for English. He's experienced a difficult season thus far, missing four of nine cuts on the year, but perhaps this finish is a sign of things to come. The result represents the 32-year-old's second top 20 of the season, and he largely got his work done on the greens, picking up 6.8 strokes on the field in total putting.

English had a renaissance season in which he completely reversed his career arc. He was so balanced in all parts of his game that the season is quite repeatable. He didn't win, but he had a second, a third, six top-10s and a whopping 13 top-25s (not including the Tour Championship). Having qualified for East Lake, it has gotten him into many big events - including some no-cut WGCs - that he will earn some "free" money this season.
After making the playoffs each of his first seven seasons on the PGA Tour, English had his worst season to date in 2018-19. He failed to finish better than a T12 with only three other top-25s. English ranked 16th in SG: Putting, but 151st in SG: Tee-to-green. He certainly has shown he has the game in the past with four seasons earning at least $1.9 million. English will be a dice roll in salary cap formats next season.
Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Harris English? Believe it or not, a few years ago, English was among a group of young elite golfers on the PGA Tour that were destined for greatness. While many from that group have taken their games to the next level, English has actually regressed in recent years. English peaked in 2014 when he earned almost $3 million, but his numbers have fallen off since then. The past two years have seen a dramatic drop-off from his peak of 2014 as he's failed to even crack the $1 million mark. English now has four solid seasons under his belt and two less than stellar seasons. The problem is, those two subpar seasons are his two most recent. While English has a higher ceiling than most golfers who finish around 125th on the FedEx list, there aren't any indications that he's about to find his old form again. As such, English is a just a decent salary cap option this season.
English had a productive rookie season in 2012 and he was very productive in the years that followed, but for some reason, his play regressed last season. It was English's first sub-$1 million season since becoming a full-time member in 2012. English's season started well, with a top-5 at the Shriners, but he was unable to get much done in 2017. English has never been accurate off the tee, but last season was a new low as he ranked 186th on the PGA Tour. He'll need to address that and if he improves just a little, it could result in a big uptick in earnings. As such, he's worth a long look in salary cap leagues this season.
English has been on the PGA Tour for five years and in that time, he's never fallen below the $1 million mark in earnings. He's been extremely consistent on the PGA Tour, with two wins, two runner-ups and two third-place finishes. English peaked in 2014, when he nearly topped $3 million in earnings, but he's fallen-off that pace the past two seasons. The question entering this season is, will be continue his recent trajectory and remain near the $2 million mark or will be bounce-back to his 2014 form. It's a bit of a risk at this price, but English looks like a perfect bounce-back candidate this season and as such, he makes a pretty good salary cap option this year. In drafts, he should go in the fourth or fifth round.
English is certainly on the way up in his career, the question is, how high can he go? He started fast on the PGA Tour three years ago when he topped the $1 million mark in his first season. He followed that up with a very nice sophomore campaign where he earned over $2 million. He couldn't quite crack the $3 million mark in his third season, but he came close. We know he's good, but can he keep up this trend? Maybe the better question is, is there any reason he'll regress this year? The answer is no. As such, he's a high-risk/high-reward salary cap option this year. In drafts he could go as early as the 2nd round.
English took a step up in class last year when he won the St. Jude Classic and topped the $2 million dollar mark, but for fantasy purposes, this could be a case where he set the bar too high. On a positive note, he's already picked up a win in the 2013-2014 portion of the schedule, so perhaps he's ascending to the next level. Whatever the case, he's probably priced a little too high for salary cap consideration. In draft leagues he should probably go in the 25-35 range.
English didn't exactly make a splash during his rookie season on the PGA TOUR, but he did show a lot of consistency, especially for a first-year player. English teed it up 27 times last year and missed only five cuts. Although he only cracked the top 5 once last season, he posted 10 top-25 finishes. The future appears bright for English, and at his price, he's probably worth a shot in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues, he should probably go in the sixth or seventh round.
For those keeping track, English enters the PGA TOUR just six spots behind Briny Baird on the Official World Golf Ranking list. So how did a rookie even find himself on this list? Well, Harris won his third start on the Nationwide Tour last season - as an amateur He turned pro just after that victory and had more success, including a runner-up finish and a third-place finish. In all, he had three Top-3s in only seven starts. English looks like a quality player and has the potential to do some damage on the PGA Tour this season.
