Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Robert Streb
Distance will be the name of the game at the PGA Championship, so it should shock no one that the longest hitter of all-time, Bryson DeChambeau, leads Len Hochberg's list of contenders for the Wanamaker Trophy.
Cameron Smith has found success in this event before, and Len Hochberg believes the duo of Smith and Marc Leishman will do the same in this week's contests on DraftKings.
The Masters is back in its traditional spot on the schedule, and Len Hochberg is back to rank the field from top to bottom. Find out where a rapidly-rising Jordan Spieth and the rest of the golfers slot in.
Many tried to match Matt Jones' performance at The Honda Classic, but when it was all said and done he found himself in a class all to himself.
Dustin Johnson was the most expensive player in the annual RotoWire staff golf league over Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy, but fewer top golfers stood out in a format that gives a guide for season-long leagues.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
The 31-year-old had made over $1 million in each of the past four seasons, but struggled in posting just one top-10 finish in 2017-18 for a measly $411,606 in earnings. After qualifying for full status again via the Web.com Tour Finals, expect Streb to show more consistency in the 2018-19 season and return to a $1 million dollar man.
Last season was Streb's fifth on the PGA Tour and it's still not clear who he is. Is he the guy who nearly topped $4 million in earnings in 2015, or the guy who has spent three seasons between $1-2 million. Logic would dictate that the 2015 season was an outlier because he hasn't come close to those results before or since. That said, with a proven upside of nearly $4 million and a cap number of more than $1.5 million, Streb might be worth a shot this season.
Four years on the PGA Tour and Streb has yet to figure out who he is. Two years ago, he posted fantastic numbers -- one win, one runner-up and nine top-10s on his way to nearly $4 million in earnings. However, the season prior he was just over $1.3 million and last year he barely topped $1 million. So which guy is he going to be this season? One possible explanation for last season is that after having so much success the year prior, he may have let-up a bit. If that's the case, then he's a great salary cap pick this year and even if that's not the case, there's not much risk as his price is very fair. In drafts he could go as high as the sixth or seventh round.
Streb struggled in his rookie season, but he turned it around last year on his way to a top-100 finish on the money list. The main reason for the turn-around was his consistency. In 21 events, Streb missed only four cuts. Once on the weekend, Streb failed to get much done, but he did manage two top-10s and one runner-up finish at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Streb could go one of two ways this year, a regression to his rookie season or an improvement on his sophomore campaign. There's no way to tell which way he'll go, so it's probably best to avoid Streb in salary cap leagues this year. In draft leagues, Streb should go in the 9th or 10th round.
Streb got hot in August, going on a run of T6-T8-T41-1 to help earn him the $305K and change, elevating him to his seventh-place finish on the Web.com Tour money list and his 2013 PGA TOUR card. Streb needs to work on his long game, as his middle-of-the-road rankings for fairways hit and greens in regulation likely won't cut it in a truncated 2013 PGA TOUR season. Streb does have talent, however, – as he bookended his victory at the Mylan Classic with rounds of 64.
