Harman has rounded into form a bit of late, but overall his 2018 season is quite uninspiring; he now ranks 90th in the field in Long-Term Greens in Regulation. That’s made even more problematic considering he’s struggled to scramble or putt well during that time period.
The talent is there, and he’s a fine price at just $7,100 on DraftKings, but the upside just isn’t there to warrant investment.
Here’s how Harman ranks in the British Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
