2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Poston spent the better part of his first two years on the PGA Tour spinning his wheels as he never was able to get much going. That changed this past season, when after months of again spinning his wheels, he broke through at the Wyndham Championship. That win nearly catapulted him into the TOUR Championship, but he missed-out by two spots. It's tough to get a read on Poston as he didn't show much prior to his win late last season, and he has just six top-10s in three seasons on the PGA Tour. The safe play is to avoid him altogether in salary cap formats. He has some value in other formats, but he'll probably regress a bit next season. Read Past Outlooks
Two straight top-10's post restart
June 21, 2020
Poston dropped a six-under 65 in the final round of the RBC Heritage to finish in a share of eight place.
ANALYSIS
Poston carded seven birdies to just one bogey in the final round. His iron play was very poor, ranking 71st out of 75 golfers in SG: Approach, but he was first in SG: Around and sixth in SG: Putting. That short game carried him to his second straight top-10 finish since tournament play restarted. Poston will be in the field next week at the Travelers Championship.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
Poston failed to sneak into the top-125 during his rookie season, but he turned his partial privileges into full privileges in 2017-18 when he finished 117th on the FedEx points list. Poston accomplished in 22 events last season, what he failed to do in the season prior, which could indicate a significant improvement. Not surprisingly, Poston's improved earnings number was a result of better putting. Poston gained improved from 127th in strokes gained: on-the-green in 2017 to 77th last season. While it's a dramatic improvement, his final ranking of 77th is certainly repeatable. Considering the small investment, Poston might be worth a look in salary cap leagues this season.
At an overall level Poston had a decent rookie campaign, as he made 71 percent of his cuts and posted four top-25s, including one top-10. A closer look reveals a streaky nature to Poston's game, as he made 9 of 10 cuts from February through May but then missed four straight cuts mid-summer and ended the season in mediocrity. With conditional PGA Tour status for 2017-18, Poston will need to find another hot streak despite his limited opportunities if he wants to regain fully-exempt status for next year.
No victories for Poston in 2016 but consistently high finishes ensured him a playing spot on the PGA Tour for 2016-17. That's especially impressive considering he didn't even join the Web.com Tour until June, and in fact played in the Canadian Tour's Qualifying School in March. He finished second twice, the first by shooting a final-round 64 at the Lincoln Land Charity Championship and the next by losing in a playoff at the Digital Ally Open. Couple that with a third in his second event of the year and a T6 in June and Poston quickly earned enough cash to make it to the next stage. The strength of his game is his irons and putter, where he ranked fifth in greens hit and 19th in putting average. Keep that consistency going on the next level and you could have a money machine.
