Jake Layman 2018-2019 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

Just like Ferguson of OKC, I think this guy at least deserves a long look and a thread. An emerging 3pt shooter and scorer off the bench with good FG%, might even get the start if Aminu misses time (Collins is the main competition for that position). Not a lot of sample data yet, but for 3pt/pts needy owners in deep leagues willing to take a risk, here's his January numbers:

41 30 2019-01-07 24-306 POR   NYK W (+10) 0 21:59 3 5 .600 1 2 .500 3 4 .750 4 7 11 4 0 0 0 0 10 15.0 +2
42 31 2019-01-09 24-308 POR   CHI W (+12) 1 17:00 1 4 .250 0 2 .000 0 0   1 1 2 0 0 0 0 0 2 0.6 -5
43 32 2019-01-11 24-310 POR   CHO W (+31) 1 26:47 4 10 .400 1 4 .250 0 0   1 4 5 2 0 0 0 2 9 6.1 +15
44 33 2019-01-13 24-312 POR @ DEN L (-3) 1 18:21 5 6 .833 1 2 .500 2 2 1.000 0 2 2 0 0 0 0 1 13 11.0 +4
45 34 2019-01-14 24-313 POR @ SAC L (-8) 1 22:27 6 9 .667 0 2 .000 1 1 1.000 2 1 3 0 0 0 1 3 13 8.6 +4

47 36 2019-01-18 24-317 POR   NOP W (+16) 0 18:29 8 14 .571 4 9 .444 0 0   1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 20 13.7 +8
48 37 2019-01-21 24-320 POR @ UTA W (+5) 0 25:21 5 9 .556 2 3 .667 0 0   0 3 3 0 1 1 0 3 12 9.1 +14
49 38 2019-01-22 24-321 POR @ OKC L (-9) 0 17:56 2 7 .286 0 4 .000 0 0   1 2 3 1 0 0 0 0 4 1.9 +7

He's ranked 75 in the past two weeks if I'm not mistaken. As of writing, he has a 20-6-3-1-2, 2 3s line in 46% shooting, granted it's against the Suns.

Hes great, but Stotts put him in the doghouse and eliminated him from the rotation completely early on for God knows why. He’s been huge and I hope his role maintains

He's certainly someone I'm keeping my eye on. Kind of like Ferguson or Nets' Harris at best. It's nice.

He can shoot and got some athleticism too...

 

Problem is like Boogie said, hes in the coach's doghouse and even when he was starting with harkless out, hes a low usage guy

Confident our guy will keep his flow for the remainder of the season? 

Well he shot 29% from the floor in both of his previous seasons and is shooting 64% over the last 2 weeks sooo... no.


Though admittedly those last 2 seasons were a very small sample size due to the low minutes. He never shot over 50% in 4 years of college either but if he can keep the minutes and keep his percentages decent I can see him hanging around near the top 100 ROS.
