The Outlook

Last year’s U.S. Open victor, Koepka has missed most the PGA season with a wrist injury. He seems to be just fine now, making all three cuts in May – he hadn’t played before that since January – and finishing runner-up two weeks ago at the Fort Worth Invitational. His 67.2 Recent Adjusted Round Score is the fourth-best mark in the field, and he’s one of the longer players on tour. His to-win odds of +1800 are too rich for my blood given the surrounding talent at that range, but his mid-tier salary in DFS is quite intriguing. I’ll also be looking for better odds on top-10 and -25 finishes.


The Metrics

Here’s how Koepka ranks in the U.S. Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
