2013 PREVIEW: After six top-10s, including a pair of runner-up finishes and one third, Matt Every is clearly a victory waiting to happpen. Putting four rounds together is key — His final-round scoring average was 104th on TOUR this year.

2012 DEFINING MOMENT: His wife, Danielle, weeks away from delivering the couple’s first child, was in Every’s gallery for all 72 holes as he posted his first runner-up finish of the season at the Valero Texas Open. He missed a birdie putt on the 72nd hole that might have forced a playoff. –- Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Matt showed up at The Sony Open with a huge black putter, and I couldn’t tell if he was trying to make birdies or trying to kill something for dinner that night. He ended up sixth that week and went on to make almost $2 million. Matt made a lot of birdies all year long. A birdie every 3.85 holes was 13th best average on TOUR.– Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio

BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: Resoundingly successful 2012 during which his wife gave birth to the couple’s first child. Given that he admitted that he doesn’t mind missing cuts — he missed nine and withdrew once in 25 starts — he can be a gamble in weekly formats, but he also peppered his résumé with six top 10s en route to $1.972 million. From our standpoint, he deserves to rank much higher than his spot in this feature, just stick with full-season games if you invest. — Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
