Yes and no. Obviously a player who can't stay healthy is a concern. But Crawford has managed to play through them and still post elite numbers. The word so far in ST is that nothing is bothering him. If he can stay healthy for a full season, I believe he will justify most of the hype. Obviously, if he starts complaining about an injury, then you should start discounting.
I can see your point; the injuries haven't hampered him much to date overall.
I am beginning to become swayed by the pro-Crawford contingent; now I am kinda hoping he makes it back to me at pick 15. A Holliday - Crawford tandem may lay a great foundation for a team.
