RCG averaged 57.3PPG in 56MPG at an output of 1.03PPM last season, all of which were huge career highs.
As a result I think he’s pretty close to max price and I can’t see him improving and hence providing value in round 1.
The season’s prior he averaged 47, 45, 48 and 39PPG all at under 1PPM.
He played four games in the middle of last season where he played 63-80 minutes and his scores went through the roof, suggesting he maintains his PPM pretty well with more time.
If he can get back to 60+ minutes he’ll be worth a look, but early in the season you’d have to think that’s unlikely, particularly with two 80 minute back-rowers and Paulo/Brown who are capable of big time.
Lane produced his highest SC average last season in 72MPG.
His 47BPG is very solid and he has big attacking upside which always makes him an enticing prospect.
I can see him factoring as an option at some stage of the year, probably during the bye period, but he’s a tier below the elite back-rowers so it’s hard to make a case for forking out $528k for his services.
