Past Fantasy Outlooks
Bryan is coming off two of the worst driving seasons imaginable. Not only does he not hit it far, he doesn't hit in straight, ranking 186th and 193rd in strokes gained: off the tee. He's known as a wizard with the wedge and he's a very good putter, so there is hope. Even though Bryan was a rookie two years ago, he's less than two years from turning 30, so he's not exactly young. Still, despite missing almost half his cuts last season with only one top-25, we could envision moderate success on shorter courses in lesser fields.
Bryan used a "battlefield" promotion in 2016 to gain entrance to the PGA Tour and he didn't disappoint in his first full season. Bryan was one of a few golfers that caught the eye of the golfing world late in 2016 and while he wasn't able to keep up with the likes of Jon Rahm, he outpaced Bryson DeChambeau. It's unclear where Bryan's ceiling is at right now, but with a win under his belt already, we have to assume it's pretty high. Bryan makes for an interesting salary cap selection this season because his upside appears to be much higher than his salary from last season, yet he has only one full year under his belt on the PGA Tour.
Bryan earned a battlefield promotion with three Web.com Tour wins, but he struggled in the few PGA Tour starts he had. Based on 2015-16, he'd need to earn a little over $700,000 this season to crack the top-125, and that could go down to the wire.
