Yeah, it's weird. He might be a star one day, but who knows if he'll ever be a player you win with. I would be scared drafting him in the Top 15 (which is where he's ranked right now on most lists), after that you probably take a gamble and hope for the best (unless there's someone better and more consistent still around).

I would have a hard time deciding between him and Carrier. I know Carrier is not quite as skilled, but he's still pretty talented (and his points are not far behind Mantha) and at least he can project as a Bottom 6 player unlike Mantha.
