Past Fantasy Outlooks
Questions surrounded Koepka entering the 2019-2020 season as he was still recovering from an injury that halted his previous season and things did not go well early on. The break due to COVID-19 actually came at a good time for Koepka as he was able to fully heal and for a while, he looked like his old self. However, he simply wasn't able to find his top form for any prolonged stretch and the season as a whole was a bust. Koepka is surely to regain his form at some point however and his deflated salary looks like an opportunity for the upcoming season.
Entering the 2018-19 season, it was still debatable as to who was the best golfer in the world. Entering this season, the debate is over. Koepka grabbed another major victory last season and was a threat at the other three. Koepka is clearly the No. 1 pick in drafts and should be the highest-valued player in auctions. His ceiling is entirely up to him as when he's focused he almost always wins and he always contends. That's the good news. The bad news is his number is just too high for salary cap purposes this season.
Koepka established himself as perhaps the best major golfer in the world last season. All of this after he started the season on the DL with a wrist injury as well. That injury limited Koepka to just 17 events last season, but he still managed to win twice and post a career-high in earnings. Koepka has won three of the past six majors, five of which he has played and it's clear that when he's focused, he's one of the best, if not the best, golfer in the world. There in lies the issue though as Koepka all but admitted after his PGA Championship victory that he gets up for majors and struggles to do the same during regular PGA Tour events. It's hard to imagine that Koepka won't figure that part out soon and if he does, then the sky is the limit. Koepka comes with a huge price tag this season, but he does have the potential to reach $10 million if everything goes right.
Koepka entered the season as a young golfer with loads of potential, and he exited the season a major champion. There are lots of guys with potential on the PGA Tour, but so many fail to live up to it, and even fewer ever grab a major. Koepka's season would have been a success even without a win at the U.S. Open, but obviously that win put his season into the exceptional category. With the exception of a stretch during the beginning of 2017, Koepka was solid all season. He recorded a pair of runner-ups and seven total top-10s. Though Koepka reached a new level this past season, there is still room for improvement. As such, he should be considered for salary cap leagues.
In his two full years on the PGA Tour, Koepka has over $6.5 million in earnings, 24 top-25s and 15 top-10s -- that's a top-10 for every three starts. The only knock is his lack of wins on the PGA Tour; Koepka has just one of those. That however makes his earnings numbers from the past two seasons even more impressive. Koepka is only going to get better and once he figures out how to close more efficiently, his numbers should go through the roof. Expect a nice increase in his numbers this season, just enough to garner a salary cap selection. In draft he could go as early as the 2nd-round.
