Yes, it's possible that you rank high, even get top 1 rank, for your target keyword but still not get so much traffic on that page. It all boils down to the keyword you're targeting. If you're targeting a keyword will a global monthly search of 150, then you would more or less get about 5 or so people on your page each day. As compared to a keyword that has a global monthly search of 1000 which could get you roughly 30 people, give or take, on your site daily.
This is why we recommend in Affiloblueprint that your target keywords should have no less than 250 global monthly searches. It would also be good if you mix these keywords up with keywords that may have tougher competition but have higher monthly searches too.
Hope that helps. Have a good day!
