2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Koepka established himself as perhaps the best major golfer in the world last season. All of this after he started the season on the DL with a wrist injury as well. That injury limited Koepka to just 17 events last season, but he still managed to win twice and post a career-high in earnings. Koepka has won three of the past six majors, five of which he has played and it's clear that when he's focused, he's one of the best, if not the best, golfer in the world. There in lies the issue though as Koepka all but admitted after his PGA Championship victory that he gets up for majors and struggles to do the same during regular PGA Tour events. It's hard to imagine that Koepka won't figure that part out soon and if he does, then the sky is the limit. Koepka comes with a huge price tag this season, but he does have the potential to reach $10 million if everything goes right. Read Past Outlooks
T2 in quest for fourth major win
April 14, 2019
Koepka continued his major championship prowess with a runner-up finish at the Masters after a final round of two-under 70.
ANALYSIS
Koepka has proved his ability to come through on the biggest stages throughout his young career. He had won three of the last six major championships he teed it up at coming into the week. Koepka started the final round three back of the lead. He held steady through the first 11 holes, but disaster struck when he hit his tee shot on the par-3 12th into the water and walked off with a double-bogey. Koepka showed his resiliency by making eagle at the par-5 13th to put himself back in contention. The 28-year-old nearly made another eagle on 15, but his putt just slid by. Koepka had very makable chances for birdies at 17 and 18 to put the pressure on Tiger Woods, but he was unable to convert on either. Koepka's inconsistency at regular tour events can be frustrating, but he is a must own at every major championship until he proves otherwise. He will not be in the field for the RBC Heritage.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
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.
