2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Struggles in final pairing
July 1, 2019
Poston closed with a one-over 73 on Sunday at the Rocket Mortgage Classic to finish 16-under and tied for 11th.
Poston played alongside eventual champion Nate Lashley in the final pairing Sunday, but jitters may have gotten the better of Poston as he failed to record a single birdie until the par-5 14th en route to his worst score of the week by three strokes. He fell outside of the top-10 and ranked just 58th in SG: Off-the-Tee at Detroit Golf Club, though Poston did gain over five strokes on his approach shots. It marks his first top-15 since a T6 at the RBC Heritage in April, which preceded a slump from the Wells Fargo Championship through the Travelers Championship that included zero top-50 results. Poston will not travel to TPC Twin Cities for the 3M Open this week.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
