Breakdown Walker Kessler

    Overview

  • Experts don't even rank him among C's. Either he is injured or is just plain bad. Based on his stats from the past 30 days, he is currently ranked 20th with 1116 total points (22.32 avg).
  • He is currently 1266 points behind the leader: Nikola Jokic
  • His average points in the past two weeks have increased by 7.7 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 69.77% from the field this month. Very impressive for a big man.
  • Assists per game numbers are alright for a center but nothing to brag about at 1.25 apg.
  • Rebounds per game numbers are great for a center / power forward with 10.25 rpg this month.
  • Bonus Qualities

  • Played in 50 more games this year than last year.
  • At this point in the season his numbers compared to last years: PPG: +7.96, APG: +0.78, RPG: +7.46, MPG: +20.12 STLS: +0.4 BLKS: +2.1

  • His average points in the past two weeks have dipped quite a bit at 18.6.
  • Performance Stats

  • Shooting 28.26% from the field this month. I'd love to play against him in a game of 'HORSE'.
