2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
In six full seasons on the PGA Tour, Martin has notched less than two top-10s in only two of them. Unfortunately for him, last season was one of them, ultimately keeping him outside the top 125 in FedExCup points and barely into conditional status at number 150. The South Carolina native is an accurate hitter and good putter, but he'll need to perform next season if he wants to maintain his status next year. Expect a rebound for Martin despite the added pressure he'll have to perform in limited opportunities. He's a fringe option for salary cap leagues but off the radar in draft leagues.

Unlike most guys that barely made the top-125 last season, Martin earned most of his points and money during the summer of 2017. Martin was in a terrible position entering May, but nine consecutive cuts made, including two top-10s, changed his entire outlook. From there, A top-15 at the Barracuda Championship was all he needed to sneak inside the top-125. Martin is an interesting option for salary cap purposes this season because his number is relatively low and it's his worst output in the past four seasons. His known ceiling is $2.7 million, which he earned in 2015 and he's been above $1.2 million three of the past four seasons. As such, he's worth some consideration in salary cap leagues this season.
Will the real Ben Martin please stand up? Martin played well in his rookie season three years ago, but his second season on the PGA Tour blew everyone away. Martin earned five top-10s in 27 starts and picked-up his first win on the way to over $2.7 million in earnings. Expectations were sky-high heading into last season and then...a big thud. He played well enough to retain his card for the current season, but that's about it. Martin is in a good spot for a bounce-back this season though, which makes him a good option in salary cap leagues this year. In draft leagues, he should go near the 7th-round.
Martin was just 24 when he first earned his PGA Tour card. That first season didn't turn out so well, but he must have learned from that experience, because the following season on the web.com Tour was a smashing success. His second go-round on the PGA Tour went much better as he nearly earned $1.5 million last year. At the age of 27 and with just a few years of high-level experience under his belt, Martin looks to have a bright future. While there's no concrete evidence to suggest a great season is on the horizon, Martin has the look of someone who is about to take-off. As such, he should be given heavy consideration in salary cap leagues. In drafts he could go as high as the 6th round.
Martin had a slow start to the Web.com Tour season in 2013, but he pulled it together mid-way through year and finished with a flurry. He had two wins in 2013 on his way to No. 2 on the money list.
Martin, the 2009 U. S. Amateur runner-up, was a three-time ALL-ACC star at Clemson. At just 23, he has a lot to learn about the life on the PGA TOUR, but he looks to have enough ability to succeed early on. Expect a nice rookie campaign from Martin in 2011.
