2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Entering the 2018-19 season, it was still debatable as to who was the best golfer in the world. Entering this season, the debate is over. Koepka grabbed another major victory last season and was a threat at the other three. Koepka is clearly the No. 1 pick in drafts and should be the highest-valued player in auctions. His ceiling is entirely up to him as when he's focused he almost always wins and he always contends. That's the good news. The bad news is his number is just too high for salary cap purposes this season. Read Past Outlooks
T38 at Genesis Invitational
February 23, 2021
Koepka closed with a two-under 69 on Sunday at the Genesis Invitational to finish even-par and tied for 38th.
ANALYSIS
Koepka bounced back from a third-round 77 by tallying six birdies during Sunday's final round, ultimately recording his third under-par score of the week at Riviera Country Club. He ranked eighth among the field in SG: Off-the-Tee despite hitting only 24 of 56 fairways in regulation, though Koepka also finished top-25 in GIR percentage. He'll tee it up again this week at the WGC-Workday Championship at The Concession.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
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.
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.
