Bradley Beal finished Wednesday's game vs. the Magic with 13 points, five boards, four assists, and one 3-pointer on 4-15 shooting but played in all 82 games for the first time in his career.
Beal benefited from injuries this season as John Wall missed half the season and Beal did not face any injuries of his own. He saw a slight efficiency decline due to having more ball handling duties but his total numbers shined. Beal finished at 17 overall in 8-cat leagues, but fell to 32 on a per game basis; he was 21 and 38 respectively in 9-cat. A career high in assists, boards, steals, and field goal attempts with a decline in points per game, 3-pointers per game, and shooting percentages explains this. Next season could see that trend reverse if Wall stays on the court. The injuries are always a risk with Beal but his durability allowed him to outperform his late-second, early-third round ADP.
