2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
It took Mitchell some time to finally make it on the PGA Tour, but since joining two seasons ago, he's wasted no time in showing everyone what he's capable of. Mitchell earned over $1.6 million in his rookie season and finished 68th on the FedEx list. This past season, Mitchell took his game to the next level by winning the Honda Classic and taking in over $2.3 million in earnings. Mitchell set the bar pretty high last season, but he appears to have the game to go even higher on the money list this season. As such, he's coin-flip for the upcoming season. There are safer picks at this price, but Mitchell might have more upside than most in this range. Read Past Outlooks
Unable to convert 54-hole lead
May 9, 2021
Mitchell shot a one-over 72 on Sunday at the Wells Fargo Championship to finish in a share of third place.
ANALYSIS
Mitchell entered the final round with a two shot lead over Rory McIlroy and got off to a great start with an opening birdie. However, the momentum stalled from there as he would bogey two of his next five holes and never regained the lead after McIlroy birdied the par-5 seventh. Mitchell ranked second for the week in strokes-gained off-the-tee, and the T-3 finish is his first top-5 since the Arnold Palmer Invitational last March.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Mitchell finished runner-up at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship and 3rd at the AT&T Byron Nelson, but he probably earned more air time for crashing the top-70 while playing at the Dell Technologies Championship in early September. Lost in all of that perhaps was that Mitchell was a rookie this season...who finished inside the top-70 on the FedEx points list. Not a bad start to one's career. In addition to the runner up and 3rd-place finish, he posted two additional top-10s throughout the season and made 21 of 29 cuts. Mitchell is just 26 and he could be an elite player someday, but the fact remains that there's a lot unknown about him at this stage. As such, the bar is simply set too high to take him in a salary cap league this season.
After missing out on the top-25 on the Web.com Tour and automatic PGA Tour exemption by just one slot, Mitchell forged through the Web.com Tour Finals with a strong showing to earn his PGA Tour card for the first time. On the Web.com last year Mitchell posted six top-10s including his best finish, a third at the News Sentinel Open. Mitchell's clear strength is his immense length off the tee that affords him plenty of birdies or better on par-5s, but the rest of his game has room for improvement. Mitchell could surprise at some weaker-fielded events where length is advantageous, but otherwise shouldn't be on your radar this season.
