Breakdown Daniel Gafford

    Overview

  • Experts don't even rank him among PF's. Either he is injured or is just plain bad. Based on his stats from the past 30 days, he is currently ranked 29th with 866 total points (18.04 avg).
  • He is currently 1339 points behind the leader: Julius Randle
  • His average points in the past two weeks have increased by 12.8 PPG. That is great, but how long can he perform at this level? If you don't have the confidence he can keep it up, then trade him for a sure thing.
  • Performance Stats

  • Shooting 75.00% from the field this month. Very impressive for a big man.
  • Assists per game numbers are 1.33 apg this month.
  • Rebounds per game numbers are average for a center / power forward with 5.58 rpg this month.
