Agreed with this, in this case I would give them a bit more space and force them to shoot that rock. If he is also a shooter, then I gotta stay closer and be really low so I could easily move my feet and also rely on my other teammates to cover for me, if I get beaten. Defense will take so much energy.

These players are a gem though, if you do find players like this - keep playing with them as you will learn a lot and they will make you feel like you should be on your toes 24/7.
