2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Smith struggled out of the gate in his rookie in 2016, but he quickly turned it around the following season when he earned his first victory and over $2 million. He followed that up with an even better season in 2018 as he picked-up three 3rd-place finishes and over $3 million in earnings. It looked like he was trending upward heading into this past season, but something went wrong. Smith's production fell off dramatically this past season, but it's too early to panic. Smith is just 25 and he has loads of talent. He's a steal at this price in salary cap leagues and should be on a lot of roster this season. Read Past Outlooks
Struggles with final round 74
June 27, 2021
Smith recorded a four-over 74 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to finish tied for 30th.
ANALYSIS
Smith started the day one back after posting three consecutive rounds in the 60s, but his day got off to a rough start with an opening bogey and he was only able to card three birdies on the day. A double-bogey on the par-3 eighth and a triple-bogey on the par-4 12th ended any chances of him taking advantage of the closing stretch. Smith struggled with his driving accuracy, leading to him losing over two shots to the field in strokes-gained off-the-tee for the week.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
Smith has had a bit of an odd journey to get to this point on the PGA Tour. He earned his card by playing well as a non-member in 2015, but his game left him the following season as a PGA Tour rookie. He found his game the following season when he earned over $2 million and expectations were high entering last season. He wasted no time living up to those expectations as he earned five top-6 finishes in his first 12 starts last season. Smith's game oddly left him though over a five-start stretch where he failed to make a single cut. He regained his form at the end of the season however as he picked-up consecutive 3rd-place finishes to start the FedEx Cup Playoffs. Smith should continue to improve this season and his price tag is in a decent spot for salary cap purposes.
Smith made the most of his limited status last year as he won the Zurich Classic in April, which secured his card for the upcoming season. The question with Smith, as with all younger golfers who win early is -will he get complacent or will he take his game to the next level. Early after his win, it looked like complacency was setting in, but he finished the season strong, which would indicate that he's ready to hit the ground running this season. The problem is, he set the bar pretty high last season and as such, he's not a great salary cap selection for the upcoming season.
The young Aussie took a step back in his second season on tour, but that's not uncommon. He did not have a top-10 in his 24 starts and finished 157th in points. It's entirely possible the 23-year-old contends for a playoff berth in 2016-17.
