Having won the race to partner Kyle Flanagan in the halves to start the season, Averillo looms as a great prospect given his availability in the CTW as well as at 5/8.
We only got a glimpse of him in the halves last year (2 games, scoring 71 and 56 for an average of 63.5) but at a heavily discounted starting price due to multiple games off (and on) the bench, as well as injury, there’s a lot of potential for upside.
He certainly passed the eye test, but with Flanagan likely taking the goal kicking tee (although this isn’t guaranteed), that could impact his floor. He will most likely start as a popular option given his price tag and opportunity, plus he has a handy dual position status as well.
An unfortunate elbow injury has him racing the clock for Round 1.
