ROB'S RANKINGS: Nos. 1-50 | 101-150 | 151-200 | 201-245

Bolton's fantasy rankings: Nos. 51-100
51 Ryan Palmer 37 1.521M Endured the loss of a good friend midseason but still totaled a career-low five missed cuts. Projects safe, underrated value again.
52 Marc Leishman 29 1.491M The Presidents Cup captain's pick did more (four top 10s) with less (16 cuts made) during the season. Aggregate experience suggests bigger days are ahead.
53 John Huh 23 1.529M The 2012 Rookie of the Year more than doubled his missed cuts (from five to 11), but turned in a season indicative of his still-underrated value.
54 Scott Stallings 28 1.622M Missed more cuts than made for the third straight season, but he's electric. Low risk-high reward model who plays a ton.
55 Matt Jones 33 1.724M Parlayed rededication into a career year. A sturdy complement, but he'll likely go too high in draft formats.
56 Chris Stroud 31 1.602M Discovered some confidence en route to a career year as he slides into his prime. Expect it to continue. On the short list of the active best without a PGA TOUR victory.
57 Kevin Chappell 27 1.589M Relieved and rejuvenated after finishing 125th in earnings in 2012, and has repeatedly shown glimmers of greatness; so goes the learning curve. No worries, however.
58 John Merrick 31 1.969M Let him fall to you. Broke through at Riviera, but recorded just one other top 10 and has only six top 10s in the last four seasons.
59 Ian Poulter 37 1.723M Coming off a second straight season with four top 10s, but didn't make too much noise. One-and-doners' primary choice for the WGC-Accenture Match Play.
60 Jonas Blixt 29 2.027M Two seasons and two wins on TOUR, but only 15 cuts made in each. Sublime short game, but still feeling his way. Someone will overpay.
61 D.A. Points 36 2.658M Exactly three top 10s in each of his last four seasons. Reserve for long-term formats.
62 Matt Every 29 1.188M All four top 25s were top 10s but he turned on the jets late. Dynamic talent deserves a long look in salary games. Destined to reward the loyal.
63 Spencer Levin 29 -- Major Medical (sat out the entire PGA TOUR season following surgery on his left thumb in October of 2012) ... 28 starts to earn $595,483.
64 Kyle Stanley 25 1.462M It's easy to overlook his youth, but he's overcome struggles with his putter to elbow into the conversation often enough to deserve your faith.
65 Kevin Na 30 110K Major Medical (bulging discs) ... 18 starts to earn $484,619.
66 Brendon Todd 28 473K Starts 10th in Web.com Tour Finals reshuffle. Enjoyed a spirited year splitting time on both tours.
67 Michael Thompson 28 1.707M Now a winner with proven value on hard courses with quick greens, but misses too many cuts to deserve above-average label in fantasy circles.
68 David Lingmerth 26 1.748M Competitor's spirit with unyielding confidence. Overvalued in salary games, but has no issues with turning up the heat in the kitchen.
69 Daniel Summerhays 29 1.277M Rewarded full-season gamers with a torrid run in July, but misses too many cuts to warrant other usage.
70 John Rollins 38 1.164M Four consecutive seasons of exactly 15 cuts made. You're never settling when you're adding him later in drafts.
71 Ernie Els 43 1.173M While he doesn't give you the bang for the buck as often, there's still a fire. Surround with busier, younger talents before plugging him in.
72 Richard H. Lee 26 920K Love his direction and balance, both inside and outside the ropes. Temper your enthusiasm as he's still a sleeper in most formats.
73 Louis Oosthuizen 30 497K Injuries and the birth of his third child challenged his focus. One of the biggest moving targets among the elite members.
74 Patrick Cantlay 21 195K Rookie. Starts ninth in Web.com Tour Finals reshuffle. A hairline fracture in his L5 vertebrae limited his playing time, but he'll heal. Remain patient.
75 Seung-yul Noh 22 391K Starts second in Web.com Tour Finals reshuffle. Fought through swing modifications all year, and then won the third leg of the Web.com Tour Finals.
76 Ben Martin 26 -- Starts eighth in Web.com Tour Finals reshuffle. Won twice on the developmental circuit in 2013.
77 Carl Pettersson 36 738K Despite decision against anchoring, he's a plum choice for salary gamers after a mysterious off-year.
78 Blake Adams 38 -- Major Medical (finally had overdue surgery on his left hip) ... 24 starts to earn $595,483.
79 Ben Crane 37 796K Licking wounds after his worst full season. Commemorated his spot at 125th in FedExCup points with a "Bubble Boy" video, and then withdrew during The Barclays.
80 John Senden 42 667K Last season was such a departure from his norm that it may have signified the beginning of his twilight. Ball-striking splits were way down. Give him one more go.
81 Brendan Steele 30 1.004M Tough to overlook the 0-for-6 run in May and June, but he missed only three other cuts all season. Worth a peek in salary games.
82 Kevin Stadler 33 1.281M Steady contributor but he's yet to fulfill the potential that many gamers have expected for years.
83 Boo Weekley 40 2.786M Found his second wind at age 40, but remains a horse for courses.
84 Tim Clark 37 1.355M Furnished another baseline season. No-brainer horse for a few courses. Ruling on anchored putter harms him the most.
85 Camilo Villegas 31 709K Even with sponsor exemptions, it's never easy to reclaim fully exempt status via conditional status. Grinder placed 19th in the all-around, his best since 2008.
86 Josh Teater 34 1.332M Career high in earnings in career-low 24 starts. Sustaining form has been his primary challenge, so don't hesitate to pull the trigger in trade leagues.
87 Cameron Tringale 26 971K Only top 10 of 2013 was a career-best solo third at Copperhead. Odds are in his favor to fulfill extended hype. Worth the price tag in salary formats.
88 Chesson Hadley 26 -- Rookie. Starts atop Web.com Tour Finals reshuffle. In two PGA TOUR starts, he missed the cut both times at the Wyndham Championship.
89 Mark Wilson 38 913K Peeled back to just 19 starts -- fewest (by five) in nine seasons -- and survived only nine cuts. Plan on a rebound but only due to more attempts.
90 Michael Putnam 30 -- Web.com Tour season earnings leader. In his own category above the reshuffle and exempt into THE PLAYERS. Won twice on the circuit in 2013.
91 Martin Flores 31 805K A nice complement to any roster. Given propensity to miss fairways, stick with him in shootouts and shorter tracks.
92 Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano 33 858K Bona fide sleeper. Fully exempt via non-member earnings. Set up residence in Florida.
93 Russell Knox 28 305K Starts 18th in Web.com Tour Finals reshuffle. Made noise on conditional status in 2013, and shot 59 on the Web.com Tour. Quantifiable sleeper.
94 Freddie Jacobson 39 1.236M Curtailed his schedule the last two years, although he's battled a myriad of injuries, too. Horse for courses smartest for weekly games.
95 Jeff Overton 30 721K Coming off his worst season since his rookie year of 2006, but still makes most cuts.
96 Luke Guthrie 23 991K Took his knocks but knew that he was safe to retain his card after a strong open. Confidence at the start of the season could be iffy given 1-for-7 conclusion to 2013.
97 Ken Duke 44 1.722M After breaking through in a playoff at TPC River Highlands, scared away investors with zero top 45s in nine starts. Just stick with him if you invest.
98 Stewart Cink 40 1.052M Rebounded with 220-percent growth in earnings thanks to three top 10s, but his days of contending regularly may be gone.
99 Martin Kaymer 28 882K Went 14-for-17 with three top 10s in his first season as a TOUR member. Still young and still finding his way. Tug from European Tour kills value.
100 Brian Harman 26 909K To veteran gamers, he feels older than 26, but stay in the now. Will reward you with full schedule and a plethora of low rounds.
