Tries are never a base stat for anyone, even the tedescos etc of the game. Saying as much is purely attempting to justify a perceived "incline in role" to suit our own agendas.
His pros are that he works hard and puts himself in great positions to score tries, has a good motor and is a young guy in a position to grow further into a role and therefore make decent points and/or money.
Cons are, teams have had time to work him out a bit more, more tape available etc and he is likely to see a bit more attention from opposition's this year.
The pros outweigh the cons? Probably. But with the tries inflating his price, if he doesn't grab a meat pie 2 outta three weeks he's gonna be priced around his average.
Full disclosure that was slightly tongue in cheek and I currently don't have him in my team.
