Bernie Vince: Deck of Dream Team 2011
Bernie Vince is a very good looking man. Probably not a good reason to pick him in your Dream Team, but if you want an under-priced player with a whole lot of potential, then the blonde bombshell from Adelaide could be a very good unit to consider!
Why should I pick him? He is another player who supports the 3rd year rule. In 2008 (his 3rd year) he improved his average by a huge 37pts from the previous year. A year later this gun was averaging 100 (2009). But last year, with heavier tags and a few injuries, Vince dropped his average to 85.3 (counting an 11 he had in his last) making him worth looking at in 2011. So… can he produce the same numbers of 2009? I reckon he can come close. He finished that year smoking with an average of 136 in his last 3. Under priced premiums are golden!
Why shouldn’t I pick him? He has a bye in Rd. 2, I personally don’t like that, not that early. I guess if it happens that early though it can be easily managed with ‘playing rookies’. In the past he has struggled to handle a tag. He only cracked 100+ a tiny 31% of the time last year and basically had a year to forget.
Deck of DT Rating. KING – if you are picking this dude then he’s a keeper for you for the entire year. Worth looking at for sure after an under preforming 2010 based on what we know he can do. Another plus for this lad is that he can pump out big games cause over the last 2 years we’ve seen numbers like 145, 136, 134, 131… and we all like those!
