Excellent point. I tend to view noisy CF numbers as a reflection of general defensive wizardry at that position, some years a guy looks brilliant and others not so much. Hadn't much considered the +/- effects of increasing RF excellence.
And the use of "cohort" would normally set me off on a Quinta del Buitre jag, but this would be the wrong forum for that.
