Not that it'll make you feel better or anything, but last year if it had been a full season he was on pace for 65 points as a 23 year old.
Assuming he stays healthy and continues to produce at that level this upcoming season (and there's no reason to think that we shouldn't expect the new normal for him to be a 60+ point player from here on out), he'll have absolutely no problems getting a team to give him a contract that's north of 5M/yr as a UFA...especially with the current trend these past few seasons where the UFA pickings get slim once UFA season actually hits.
