To my mind Feerick is the choice there. From what I've read he was top 10 in every stat recorded. He was 9.5% better from the field, (or 31.4% better if we use Fulks' .305 as the baseline). Fulks got to the line a little more which closes the efficiency gap somewhat, but I would think Fulks is benefiting from greater name recognition.

To match Fulks point production even without drawing any fouls Feerick need only have made an extra 2.323485 field goals a game. Had he shot them at just 18.5% (that is, taking over 12 and a half shots a game to make those 2.32485), he would still come out ahead of Fulks in fg%.

To get them to match on ts% would take less of a drop but still huge one, and that's again without factoring in additional fouls drawn. Plus Feerick has better non-scoring numbers.
