Luke Shuey: Deck of Dream Team 2011

Missed a fair chunk of 2010 which will keep his price down, especially as he performed below his potential because of the dreaded glandular fever. Will be on of the bargain picks of 2011. Does he fit your structure?

Name: Luke Shuey
Club: West Coast Eagles
Position: Centre
Bye Rounds: 5 & 15
2010 Average: 73.8
2010 Games Played: 6
Predicted Average: 85

Why should I pick him? Firstly because he’ll be at a discounted price, meaning he’ll be cheaper than other player who are valued at the average of 74 as he missed heaps of 2010 with glandular fever. He did scratch together 6 games where we played 3 at the start and 3 at the end end of 2010. He is a great DTer and scores well with his top 3 games being 105 (21d, 8t), 85, 81 with 2 of those scores coming in his last 3 games. When fit, he is in WCE best 22 and will certainly go up in price this year.

Why shouldn’t I pick him? He’ll be an expensive rookie, despite the discount. If you are looking at a pure cash cow them a straight up rookie would be a better bet.

Deck of DT Rating. JACK – he will go up in price cause he will average more than the 74 he has next to his name so far. Expensive ‘rookie’ with 6 games under his belt, proven DTer and in the WCE best 22. He has a lot going for him in 2011.
