2021–22 Fantasy Outlook
NeSmith looked like he was in for a solid season in 2020-21 after a strong fall season and three top-20s over the West Coast swing, but his momentum quickly curtailed. His final nine events included six missed cuts and zero top-25 finishes. His iron play has been stellar during his two seasons on tour (top 25 in strokes-gained approach each season), but he's going to need to improve on and around-the-green to find more consistent results.

Adds seventh top-25 of season
May 4, 2021
NeSmith closed with an even-par 71 on Sunday at the Valspar Championship to finish five-under and tied for 21st.
ANALYSIS
NeSmith averaged a disappointing 2.00 putts per green in regulation during Sunday's final round, but he ultimately finished the tournament ranked second in GIR percentage and 12th in SG: Approach. He's now surpassed the $1M mark in earnings this season with seven total top-25s. NeSmith is now slated to make his Wells Fargo Championship debut this week at Quail Hollow.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
NeSmith was the No. 5 rookie on Tour last season. He was faring well until the break from play in March and perhaps with some more consistency, NeSmith can show what he's capable of. Look for NeSmith to find a little more consistency this season and perhaps a couple top-10s.
A pair of 63s to open the Ellie Mae Classic in early August foreshadowed what was to come for NeSmith during the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, as he went on to fire a seven-under 64 during the final round of the Albertsons Boise Open and win the event by one stroke while locking up a PGA Tour card for the first time. NeSmith has made five career starts at the PGA Tour level, though he's missed the cut in each attempt and was unable to break 70 in all 10 rounds. He led the entire KFT in GIR percentage throughout the 2019 season, however, and NeSmith also ranked 11th in total driving.
