As a Bucks fan and current roster-er of Bledsoe in my fantasy league I can provide some context. He's just not hitting his three pointers at the moment. His shot is off right now and he typically starts off games not looking for his own shot. He usually looks to get Middleton and Giannis going with Lopez providing some three pointers as well. Unfortunately he just isnt going to score as much as he did last year with the way the Bucks are constructed. There are just too many weapons on this team.
The only alarming thing right now to me, are his lack of steals and his bad three point shooting. Yes his steals have been coming back a little bit. He just wont net you 20 ppg anymore.
Buddenholzer seems to be running a very set rotation. He starts with Bledsoe/Brogdon to start the 1st and 2nd half. Then subs Brogdon out at like the 8 minute mark, then subs in George Hill or Tony Snell for him. Then he'll sub out Bledsoe at like the 4-5 minute mark of the 1st / 3rd to let Brogdon back in the game. Then he'll put Bledsoe in at like the 10 minute mark in the 2nd and 4th, but a lot of times Bledsoe wont close out the 2nd Quarter. So George Hill closes out the second quarter. Then Bledsoe typically closes out the 4th, but gets subbed back in usually with like 2-3 minutes left in the 4th. Putting his minutes around 30 - ish per night. Its almost like clockwork the way the coach runs his guard rotations. He actually had Bledsoe due to check back in at the 2 minute mark last night even with the score differential and game already out of hand, but the way the game went he just didnt get a chance to check back in at that mark.
I hope his Steals/Blocks come back up a little bit. When you watch him play he gives effort on the defensive end and has a lot of chase down blocks on Point Guards going for mid range Jump shots. He usually blocks them from behind. If his defensive numbers come back up a little bit he should be around top 40 value per game.
I took him in the 3rd round foolishly thinking that he would score more in a three point heavy offensive system. But seems like on some nights he may be the 4th or even 5th option behind Lopez and Brogdon. I think he asserts himself more on the defensive end then he does on the offensive end most nights. Good news though is once his three starts falling again he should provide better fg%.
