        As rossco1 said, although Whitfield is a rollercoaster- concussion protocols make it a chance he misses at least some point during the year.

      I had all 4 last year, but started with Crisp and Whitfield. This year, Whitfield and Laird. Crisp and Lloyd are awesome, but they are basically maxed out and so you sort of hope they go 5 points unders and can be picked up later.
