Player Review 2019: Aaron Holiday

Age: 22
Years pro: 1
Status: Entering the second season of his rookie contract.
Key stats: Averaged 5.9 points, 1.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists in 12.9 minutes per game in 50 appearances, all off the bench.

There are advantages to being a young backup quarterback. If things aren't going well people want you to play, and your mistakes are forgiven far more readily than those of the starters.

Aaron Holiday benefited some from that mindset throughout his rookie season, but he also showed enough substance to warrant optimism for his future.
