Lack of experience against more physical opponents that he will have to match up with in the NBA
Not much range on his jump shot
Gets most of his points off putbacks, layups and dunks
Free Throw Shooting
Summary: After testing the waters last summer, Kenneth Faried has seemed to solidify his status as a first-round pick due to relentless work ethic and effort on the glass. Some team could fall in love with him, and Faried could be off the board in the mid teens. More than likely, the early-mid 20s seem like a more probably landing spot for the nation's leading rebounder.
Player Comparison: Kris Humphries. Faried has relied on his athleticism and non-stop motor to be a double-double machine at the college level. Humprhies is the same mold of player who is posting career numbers this season. Neither guy is overly physical, and both are fairly limited to the paint with their offensive game, but Faried should be able to find a role in the NBA like Humprhies has.
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
