I had been wondering how some of these numbers looked this year but had been too lazy to check since I don't own Shields in any leagues this year - seems like it's about as unrepeatable as his incredibly unlucky numbers from last year. I'm a big fan of "ride the streak", but I don't see how these numbers can be sustainable for too much longer - if I did own him, I'd certainly be trying to sell him right now as his value is at an all-time high today IMO
