Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Brooks Koepka
Justin Thomas achieved his second victory in two months and has now finished no worse than top-12 in his past eight worldwide starts and is up to No. 4 in the world.
Brooks Koepka is the reigning champion of this event, so it's not hard to see why he lands a spot in this week's golfers to zero in on in contests on Yahoo.
Greg Vara analyzes this week's PGA Tour stop in South Korea where Pat Perez could sneak up on the bigger names in the field.
Tommy Fleetwood has been a top-25 machine for months now, and the wheel figures to keep turning as he wedges his way into this week's golfers to target in FanDuel contests.
Jordan Spieth has never played this event, but that does not stop him from landing a spot among this week's recommendations for contests on DraftKings.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Koepka entered the season as a young golfer with loads of potential, and he exited the season a major champion. There are lots of guys with potential on the PGA Tour, but so many fail to live up to it, and even fewer ever grab a major. Koepka's season would have been a success even without a win at the U.S. Open, but obviously that win put his season into the exceptional category. With the exception of a stretch during the beginning of 2017, Koepka was solid all season. He recorded a pair of runner-ups and seven total top-10s. Though Koepka reached a new level this past season, there is still room for improvement. As such, he should be considered for salary cap leagues.
In his two full years on the PGA Tour, Koepka has over $6.5 million in earnings, 24 top-25s and 15 top-10s -- that's a top-10 for every three starts. The only knock is his lack of wins on the PGA Tour; Koepka has just one of those. That however makes his earnings numbers from the past two seasons even more impressive. Koepka is only going to get better and once he figures out how to close more efficiently, his numbers should go through the roof. Expect a nice increase in his numbers this season, just enough to garner a salary cap selection. In draft he could go as early as the 2nd-round.
