2021–22 Fantasy Outlook
Power missed five of his first six cuts to start the season and then went his final 11 starts without missing a weekend and racking up a win at the Barbasol and six other top-25s. Power's short game was very impressive as he ranked top-10 in both SG: around and scrambling. He gained strokes in every area and has a lot of upside going into a full 2021-22 season.

Struggles with Sunday 74
January 23, 2022
Power recorded a two-over 74 in the final round of The American Express to finish tied for 14th place.
ANALYSIS
Power entered the final round looking to pick up a win in consecutive seasons as he was two back and trailing just three players, but he got off to a disastrous start with a double bogey and a bogey on his opening two holes to fall out of contention. He lost 3.2 strokes Sunday from tee-to-green and only gained strokes on the greens for the tournament. Power has six top-15 finishes in nine starts this season.

Power got into only 11 tournaments last season, playing out of the 126-150 category. He made seven cuts with two top-25s. He should get more starts in a full season, and get near his previous average of about $700k in earnings.
There wasn't a huge difference from the 2017-18 season when Power made the playoffs, and last season when he finished 143rd in the standings. He only had two more missed cuts and one less top-25 this past season. Power needs to really make a big step up in his ball striking, as he ranked 189th in SG: Approach and 177th in SG: Tee-to-green. He will be a risky option in salary cap leagues.
Power has spent two seasons on the PGA Tour and he's finished 130th and 114th on the FedEx points list. While Power improved his FedEx position last season, when consider that he was 15th on the PGA Tour in strokes-gained putting, the minimal gain in points is a bit of a letdown. Power's overall game is not where it needs to be in order to see a significant improvement. Power would need to improve his tee-to-green game while maintaining his incredible putting from last season and that's just not likely to happen. With that in mind, Power is not a good salary cap option this season.
Power's rookie season on the PGA Tour started slowly but ended with promise as he notched three of his four top-25s in his final five events. If Power can muster enough starts to build momentum early in the wraparound season, look for him to flirt with $1 million or more in earnings. Of course there's downside for a sophomore slump that tosses him between the PGA and Web.com tours, but you could do much worse than the 30-year-old Irishman.
Not sure what this says about Power or the crop of potential European Ryder Cup captain's picks, but Seamus, pronounced "Shamus," was on some lists of potential options for Darren Clarke. He was not picked, but that doesn't diminish his impressive 2016 campaign. He got his PGA Tour card through a win at the United Leasing & Finance Championship, and had a solid summer run that included three top-20 finishes, one at the Rio Olympics where he represented Ireland and tied for 15th. That week, in a limited but still strong field, he ranked 14th in SG tee-to-green, complementing a season-long Web.com Tour ranking of 13th for greens in regulation. Don't be surprised if Power sneaks up on some leaderboards early. The mere mention of him has a possible captain's pick shows you what those across the pond think of him.
