2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Eight years into his PGA Tour career and it's still difficult to figure out Harman. He's not the guy who made just over $900k in 2013, but he's also not the guy who won over $4 million in 2017. This past season, was possibly his worst in the past six years, but with that, there's some value heading into this season. It's hard to imagine that Harman can get close to his production from 2017, but $2 million is certainly not out of the question. Read Past Outlooks

Harman was the surprise of the 2016-2017 season and he picked-up right where he left off last season with top-10s in his first five starts last season. Unfortunately, Harman wasn't able to carry that momentum through the season and he ended the year with a whimper. Harman is a high-end golfer, he's topped $2 million in earnings in three of his past five seasons, but it's hard to look at his 2016-2017 as anything other than an aberration. Harman should continue to produce at a level near what he did last season for the foreseeable future. As such, he's not going to be a good salary cap option unless he has a down season, which again, is unlikely anytime soon.
Harman was one of a few guys in the top-30 last season that made a huge jump from the year prior. There were no signs early in the season that this huge jump was imminent as he had just one top-25 during the fall. As soon as 2017 started though, Harman found another gear. Two top-10s in January were followed by another in April, and a win at the Wells Fargo Championship vaulted Harman into uncharted territory. He carded another top-10 in May and a runner-up at the U.S. Open, and while he faded down the stretch, he still posted career highs in just about every measurable category. With that in mind, it's going to be tough to exceed or even match the numbers from last season, so he's not a great salary cap option this season.
With the exception of one season, Harman has spent the entirety of his five-year career inside the top-60 on the FedEx points list. His lone finish outside the top-60 still resulted in a decent season as he nearly earned $1 million that year. Harman's best season came in 2014 where he picked-up his first and only win on the PGA Tour and amassed nearly $2.5 million in earnings. Harman has regressed in the two seasons that followed, but that puts him in a good spot for a rebound this season. While his upside to this point isn't all that high, he comes at a fairly inexpensive price this year, so he's worth a look in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues, he's a seventh- or eighth-round pick.
Harman had a huge jump up in earnings last year from just under $1 million in 2013, to just over $2.4 million last year. In fact, Harman earned more last year than he did in his first two seasons combined. While it's certainly promising to see him play very well in his third year, it's also hard to imagine that he can pull off a similar trick next season. His ceiling could be higher than $2.4 million, but it's too much of a risk to take him in a salary cap league this season. In draft leagues he should go somewhere around the 4th round.
Harman struggled for much of the 2013 season, but a T3 at the Wyndham Championship in August pushed him into the top-100 on the money list. It also gained him entrance into the Fed Ex Cup Playoffs, but once there, he didn't play well. Harman regressed in year-two on the PGA Tour, which is both good and bad. Bad is obviously that he played poorly for long stretches last year, but the good is that we know he can play better, as he proved in 2012. With that in mind, he's not a great salary cap option his year, but he could provide some value in a draft format in the 90-100 range.
Harman had his fare share of struggles in 2012, but he kept plugging away and it paid off in the end. Harman teed it up 30 times last season, making 21 cuts. He made the top 5 just once last season, but he did manage nine top-25s. It's hard to tell where Harman's upside is after just one season, but he looks the part, and he played well during the meat of the PGA TOUR season last year. Harman is worth a shot in salary cap leagues. He won't likely be on many radars prior to the season, so he could be classified as a bit of a sleeper this year. In draft leagues, he should be available in the seventh or eighth round.
Harman's joining the PGA Tour in 2012 is the baseball equivalent of a rookie getting called up from Double-A. Harmon played on the obscure Egolf Professional Tour last season. There's no reason a Nationwide Tour grad couldn't capture a win or two in his first season, but Harman is coming from nowhere essentially and it probably will take some time to adjust.
