2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks
Gives up 54-hole lead
August 25, 2019
Koepka finished in a tie for third at the TOUR Championship after relinquishing the 54-hole lead with a two-over 72 on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Koepka had a chance on Sunday to put a stamp on an incredible season. He started with a one shot lead, but fell out of the equation mid-way through the back-nine. Koepka uncharacteristically made three consecutive bogeys on holes 12-14. The key to success at East Lake is usually driving, something Koepka struggled with all week. On Sunday it just seemed to finally catch up with him. While he loses out on a FedExCup title and the $15 million bonus, Koepka will likely win PGA Tour POY thanks to finishing top-four in every major. The World No. 1 had three total wins, including a fourth career major at the PGA Championship, three runner-up's, and only one missed cut. Rory McIlroy and Koepka appear to be the two battling at the top of the world for years to come.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
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.
