Past Fantasy Outlooks
Kang's entire 2016-17 season was built upon a three-week stretch where he posted a runner-up at the Shell Houston Open, a T11 at the Heritage and a T6 at Valero Texas Open. Outside of that stretch, Kang accomplished very little and that's a little concerning heading into this season. Kang has improved in each of his three seasons on the PGA Tour, but his jump from the previous season to last season, may have been a bit too much. Although he has plenty of upside, the bar was set too high last year, and as such, he's not a great salary cap pick this season.
Three years on the PGA Tour and Kang hasn't accomplished much in that time. Last year was the first that he finished inside the top-125, so he's showing some progress, but his cut percentage was just over 50% last season and he only managed two top-10s. It is encouraging that he significantly improved his cuts-made percentage last season, but there just doesn't seem to be much upside. As such, he's not a good salary cap option this year. In drafts, he'll go very late.
Kang spent most of his rookie season in limbo as his status for the upcoming season wasn't settled until the season's final event. Kang actually needed every bit of his third-place prize to sneak into the Top 125 last season. That's not exactly what fantasy owners want out of any of players, no matter what they pay. Kang might find the going a little easier this season after getting acclimated last year, but the difference won't be enough to make him draftable in either salary cap or draft leagues.
