Here is the next batch of defenders. Again, this is just my personal guessing, and not anything derived from math.
He is going to be 35 this season. He’s been amazing to get this far and do so well. His two best season averages were at 31 and 33, which most players could not manage because they would have already retired. It does look like he got hit by a beer truck at 34, so hard to take him this season at 35. I wouldn’t be shocked if he puts up a score over 82, but I wouldn’t dream of risking him in my team.
When he was 25, taking him when priced at 75 would have been a tolerable risk. At 29, taking him priced at 80 is harder to swallow. I feel like he will bounce back some, but he’s missed a lot of time over the last two seasons and I’d rather take a chance on someone younger.
Hey, someone younger. But, still more than a little injury prone. He’d have to improve both his health and average to work out, and while he could, it does not seem the way to bet.
Even younger still! 21 games in each of the last two seasons is good. The 11 point drop in average last season was not good. He would have to improve close to 20 points to be worthwhile, but that’s not impossible. I feel like maybe with good news from the pre-season and a role that suits, maybe.
With an average games played of 14.75 over the last four season, he’s not looking like a good risk, even if he averages wre better.
I feel like he is so close to being a good pick. A bit too hurt, and a bit too poor scoring. I keep hearing he has a lot of potential, and he might, but without seeing some of that potential, hard to take him. Only 22 though.
I find it telling that people are talking about Houston and DBJ score when he is playing or not, rather than about how Burton scores when they are playing or not. How far back are you overall when you are the third best breakout contender in defense for the Power?
That’s it for defenders for now. If I missed anyone I’ll do a catch up post later on.
