Young Hawk Changkuoth Jiath stared the year on fire, but has dropped off dramatically in his last five games. As you can see from the chart above, his numbers have been down across the board, except for a slight bump in contested ball.
The overall shape of his scoring pattern is similar to what it as before, just a lot smaller:
But why? Well, wee can see from the above that he’s getting almost as much of the ball as before, albeit slightly differently: a few more contested possessions, a few less uncontested, and far fewer marks. But it’s his ball use from those possessions that has really dropped away.
This might indicate why:
Although there are no direct points on offer for metres gained, it is a strong indicator of role: when a defender has high metres-gained, that’s generally indicative of a halfback distributor type role, which is known to be very SuperCoach-friendly. CJ had that role earlier in the year, but, looking at the above chart, it seems to have dried up.
You’d have to ask the Hawk’s coaching staff to know why his role has changed, but at least we now know where all his points have gone.
That’s all I have for you today, but I know some people were wondering about Jiath, so I hope that’s been at least somewhat enlightening.
