2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Poston failed to sneak into the top-125 during his rookie season, but he turned his partial privileges into full privileges in 2017-18 when he finished 117th on the FedEx points list. Poston accomplished in 22 events last season, what he failed to do in the season prior, which could indicate a significant improvement. Not surprisingly, Poston's improved earnings number was a result of better putting. Poston gained improved from 127th in strokes gained: on-the-green in 2017 to 77th last season. While it's a dramatic improvement, his final ranking of 77th is certainly repeatable. Considering the small investment, Poston might be worth a look in salary cap leagues this season.

Sunday 62 to net first career win
August 4, 2019
Poston notched his first career PGA Tour victory by one stroke after shooting a flawless eight-under 62 on Sunday at the Wyndham Championship.
ANALYSIS
Poston somehow managed to not record a score worse than par on any hole all week. He started the final round three back of the leaders, but surged into the lead after starting six-under through the first 10 holes. Poston added a pair of birdies on 13 and 15, while Ben An and Webb Simpson were unable to match his 22-under-par total. The 26-year-old led the field in SG: Approach, SG: Tee-to-green, and GIR's. The win moves Poston all the way up into 27th in the FedExCup standings. He will hope to continue his fabulous ball striking at THE NORTHERN TRUST next week.

Wyndham Championship Recap: Poston Gets First Tour Victory
71 days ago
North Carolina native J.T. Poston turned a flawless four days of golf into his first PGA Tour victory, beating out heavily favored Webb Simpson by one stroke.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
At an overall level Poston had a decent rookie campaign, as he made 71 percent of his cuts and posted four top-25s, including one top-10. A closer look reveals a streaky nature to Poston's game, as he made 9 of 10 cuts from February through May but then missed four straight cuts mid-summer and ended the season in mediocrity. With conditional PGA Tour status for 2017-18, Poston will need to find another hot streak despite his limited opportunities if he wants to regain fully-exempt status for next year.
No victories for Poston in 2016 but consistently high finishes ensured him a playing spot on the PGA Tour for 2016-17. That's especially impressive considering he didn't even join the Web.com Tour until June, and in fact played in the Canadian Tour's Qualifying School in March. He finished second twice, the first by shooting a final-round 64 at the Lincoln Land Charity Championship and the next by losing in a playoff at the Digital Ally Open. Couple that with a third in his second event of the year and a T6 in June and Poston quickly earned enough cash to make it to the next stage. The strength of his game is his irons and putter, where he ranked fifth in greens hit and 19th in putting average. Keep that consistency going on the next level and you could have a money machine.
