2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
After a decent rookie campaign and a strong sophomore campaign, all signs were pointing to a big third season for Spaun, but it never materialized. Spaun drastically improved his cuts-made percentage, but he lacked the high-end finishes of his sophomore season. The culprit last season was his game off the tee, where he dropped over 60-spots in strokes gained off the tee from the previous season. If he can fix that issue, he can get back on track. With that in mind, he's worth a look in salary cap leagues this season. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Spaun had a very solid rookie season in 2017, earning over $1 million and finishing the season 91st on the FedEx points list. Spaun was even better in his second season on the PGA Tour as he posted a runner-up, two 3rd-place finishes and four total top-10s. Spaun also nearly cracked the $2 million mark in his second season. For anyone that took a chance on Spaun prior to last season, it surely paid off, but can he improve upon what was a very good season yet again this year? The answer lies in his putting. He's never been a great putter, but he's such a good ball striker that it often makes up for his lack of short game. There is so much room for improvement however that even a small improvement in his putting could result in huge gains. As such, Spaun is a very intriguing salary cap selection this season.
While it wasn't an outstanding season, Spaun accomplished everything a rookie needs to on the PGA Tour last season. He had zero top-5s, but he recorded three top-10s, which coupled with a total of 18 paychecks, was enough to get him safely inside the top-125, which is the main goal of every rookie. Spaun will of course want to improve his overall numbers next season and to do so, he should start with some work in the bunker as he ranked 159th in sand saves last season. It's seems like such a small part of the game, but a stroke here and there can mean the difference between a top-15 and a top-10 and those top-10s add up. It's too early to tell which direction Spaun will go from here and without having much of a track record to go on, he's carries too much risk at this price in salary cap leagues.
Spaun registered one victory – the News Sentinel Open in late August – two seconds and seven top-10s in 2016 on the Web.com Tour, easily sealing his spot on the PGA Tour for 2016-17. The win included middle rounds of 62-64, two of four rounds of 64 or better he shot in competition this year. He also played the Northern Trust Open on the PGA Tour, missing the cut. He was second in greens in regulation on the Web.com Tour at 76.65 percent and was 12th in the all-around ranking. One negative is that he finished 89th in putting average, something that will have to change on the PGA Tour for him to be a strong fantasy player.
