Past Fantasy Outlooks
Last season was Streb's fifth on the PGA Tour and it's still not clear who he is. Is he the guy who nearly topped $4 million in earnings in 2015, or the guy who has spent three seasons between $1-2 million. Logic would dictate that the 2015 season was an outlier because he hasn't come close to those results before or since. That said, with a proven upside of nearly $4 million and a cap number of more than $1.5 million, Streb might be worth a shot this season.
Four years on the PGA Tour and Streb has yet to figure out who he is. Two years ago, he posted fantastic numbers -- one win, one runner-up and nine top-10s on his way to nearly $4 million in earnings. However, the season prior he was just over $1.3 million and last year he barely topped $1 million. So which guy is he going to be this season? One possible explanation for last season is that after having so much success the year prior, he may have let-up a bit. If that's the case, then he's a great salary cap pick this year and even if that's not the case, there's not much risk as his price is very fair. In drafts he could go as high as the sixth or seventh round.
Streb struggled in his rookie season, but he turned it around last year on his way to a top-100 finish on the money list. The main reason for the turn-around was his consistency. In 21 events, Streb missed only four cuts. Once on the weekend, Streb failed to get much done, but he did manage two top-10s and one runner-up finish at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Streb could go one of two ways this year, a regression to his rookie season or an improvement on his sophomore campaign. There's no way to tell which way he'll go, so it's probably best to avoid Streb in salary cap leagues this year. In draft leagues, Streb should go in the 9th or 10th round.
Streb got hot in August, going on a run of T6-T8-T41-1 to help earn him the $305K and change, elevating him to his seventh-place finish on the Web.com Tour money list and his 2013 PGA TOUR card. Streb needs to work on his long game, as his middle-of-the-road rankings for fairways hit and greens in regulation likely won't cut it in a truncated 2013 PGA TOUR season. Streb does have talent, however, – as he bookended his victory at the Mylan Classic with rounds of 64.
