He had 3 straight years of improvement before last season and had a great 2nd half after an extremely slow start last season. We try to look for trends. What reason do we have that his 2006 slow start is the norm rather than the 3 improving years and a solid 2nd half last season??
From my perspective, and it's one that is admittedly skewed by my insistence on playing only H2H leagues, his 2006 early-season drought really emphasized his streakiness; something I'd previously glossed over because his overall numbers were so good.
Look at '04 and '05. Those are some pretty dramatic peaks and valleys.
H2H does not generally shine favorably on people that draft a lot of streaky players.
