He was heavily hyped by the media and much of our fan base prior to and much of this season. All that hype may have lead to too high expectations by the fan base, which in turn would lead to many fans being critical of his performance at this point.

For those of us that feel that Silfveberg's upside is that of a high end second liner, he is performing as expected.

IMO it is a combination of the high expectations and overall fatigue, as you have stated, that have lead to the perception that Silfverberg is "off" or under performing. But abiding by Occam's razor, your explanation is sufficient.
