Justin Thomas
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
Although he finished seventh on the FedEx points list, Thomas was the leading money earner in 2017-18. Prior to the FedEx Cup, that held a lot more prestige, but considering the FedEx bonus is more than anyone earned on the course last season, it obviously has lost some luster. It is an important number for salary cap leagues, however, as Thomas enters this season with the highest price tag. Thomas won three times last season and five times the season prior. He's in the conversation of best golfer alive, and there's no reason to think he falls out of that conversation this season. As mentioned, though, the price tag is too high for salary cap purposes this season. In draft leagues he could go as high as No. 1, but shouldn't fall below third or fourth overall.

Shoots 70 all four rounds at Hero
December 3, 2018
Thomas finished in a tie for 12th place after shooting a two-under 70 in the final round of the Hero World Challenge.
ANALYSIS
Well Thomas was consistent at least, shooting 70 in every round, but that's not going to get it done at a course like Albany. While it might now been as strong as his 2017, Thomas was defiantly more consistent in 2018. He finished the year with top-25's in eight of his last nine starts, and missed just one cut the entire calendar year. Thomas posses one of the best overall game's in golf, with little to no weaknesses. It was his elite iron play that got him to World No. 1 briefly last season.

2015
There are several words that come to mind when thinking about Thomas' 2016-17 season. Awesome, incredible, impressive and don't forget surprising. Thomas has had the "potential" label for a few years now, but unlike most of his buddies, Thomas had yet to reach his potential. That began to change early in the 2016-17 season as he posted three wins before the month of February. As expected after that third win, the golf world went nuts and Thomas was inserted as the Masters favorite, the FedExCup favorite and a lock for the Hall of Fame. A funny thing happened after that third win though, Thomas' game left him for several months. He obviously found his game before the end of the season and that's why it was so impressive. It would have been easy to get complacent after three wins to start the season, but he battled through a slump that saw him miss three consecutive cuts at one point, to end the season on top of the golf world. With all of that said, there is simply too much talent on the PGA Tour for any one golfer to do what Thomas did last season, in two consecutive seasons.
Thomas' ascension to the top of the PGA Tour ranks has come fast and furious. As a rookie in 2015, Thomas was unable to find a victory or even a top-3 for that matter, but he was able to parlay seven top-10s in to over $2.2 million in earnings. Last season, Thomas won his second start and never looked back. When it was all done, Thomas added three more top-3s on his way to over $4 million in earnings. Thomas appears to be getting better and even though he set the bar pretty high last season, he should be able to improve upon his number this year. In draft leagues, Thomas should go in the 2nd-round.
Thomas has an opportunity to be an absolute stud on the PGA Tour. A part of an Alabama team that won a National Championship, Thomas won the third Web.com Tour Finals event, the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, in a playoff for his first win of the year. Coupled with a second, third, fourth, and a fifth, it was an extremely solid year for Thomas, who finished fifth in total season money, will start the 2014-2015 PGA Tour season second on the Reshuffle List, and is in prime position to make a fall charge. Averaging 311.5 yards off the tee and ending the year third in scoring average, fantasy players will want to draft and start this guy early and often: he’s got the making of an absolute young gun.
