2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Smith has had a bit of an odd journey to get to this point on the PGA Tour. He earned his card by playing well as a non-member in 2015, but his game left him the following season as a PGA Tour rookie. He found his game the following season when he earned over $2 million and expectations were high entering last season. He wasted no time living up to those expectations as he earned five top-6 finishes in his first 12 starts last season. Smith's game oddly left him though over a five-start stretch where he failed to make a single cut. He regained his form at the end of the season however as he picked-up consecutive 3rd-place finishes to start the FedEx Cup Playoffs. Smith should continue to improve this season and his price tag is in a decent spot for salary cap purposes. Read Past Outlooks
Looking to break out of slump
May 29, 2019
Smith will play the Memorial Tournament this week.
ANALYSIS
Smith had a fantastic season last year that saw him pick up seven finishes of sixth-or-better. The Aussie had a good start to this season as well, but since picking up his third top-10 of the season in late February, Smith has been really struggling. He now has finished outside the top-50 in each of his last seven starts. Murifield Village has not been one of Smith's better tracks with two missed cuts and a T65 in three career starts.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Smith made the most of his limited status last year as he won the Zurich Classic in April, which secured his card for the upcoming season. The question with Smith, as with all younger golfers who win early is -will he get complacent or will he take his game to the next level. Early after his win, it looked like complacency was setting in, but he finished the season strong, which would indicate that he's ready to hit the ground running this season. The problem is, he set the bar pretty high last season and as such, he's not a great salary cap selection for the upcoming season.
The young Aussie took a step back in his second season on tour, but that's not uncommon. He did not have a top-10 in his 24 starts and finished 157th in points. It's entirely possible the 23-year-old contends for a playoff berth in 2016-17.
