When you look at his microstats, the explanation that appears isn't that Gomez markedly slowed down. He's still producing more or less as many chances as he used to. But for some reason, his shot percentage and those of his teammates were noticeably lower last year than their respective average. And since shot percentage is a statistic that tend to vary widely for no other reason than pure randomness, there is some justified expectation that he and his wingers will probably bounce back.
Not entirely correct. Quality of shots counts. And good quality chances come from good passes, and yes, also good anticipation and positioning by wingers.

Both were lacking on Gomer's lines for long stretches last year.
