On field scores are big and benches are thin as the list of unreliable rookies continues to grow. But, in good news, there is finally some light at the end of the tunnel on that front.
Lachie Neale- Although I was wary his good score last week took four goals, I thought he might be back… But after not hitting the scoreboard this week, he fell well short of expectation again this week.
Will Hoskin -Elliot– It was his first off week, but remember he is just a glorified cash cow, so upgra
ding to an uber premium is not out of the question.
Marc Murphy– Hopefully he knee is ok this week, but it’s still a worry regardless. Obvious trade if he misses.
Heath Shaw – I’ve said yes the last couple of weeks, but he has nearly dropped so much it’s worth riding out. Just try to forget he is there and trade through the byes.
Aaron Black (FWD, $178,000) BE: -23
Jay Kennedy-Harris (FWD, $150,000) BE: -3
David Myers (MID, $197,000) BE: 34
Alex Neal Bullen (FWD/MID, $460,000) Same guy as last week because he remains the standout in the sub-premium price category. He is averaging 99 on the back of his 91 point performance and still has a low BE of just 40.
Michael Barlow (FWD/MID, $527,000) Although the early bye is a turn off for some, if you have a decent bench it would be nice having a player of Barlow’s calibre available through the dreaded three week patch. Ideally we would just get him straight off the bye, but there is still three weeks where we can play him up forward where he is averaging 90 after 127 on the weekend.
Robbie Gray (FWD/MID, $530,000) In the same boat as Barlow with the Bye following the game in China, but there is a greater argument to bring Gray in early given his low BE of just 67 following 125 against the Blues. If you want him at his cheapest, it’s probably now.
Joel Selwood (MID, $671,000) is owned by just 3% despite his thumping average of 127 this year. Traditionally Selwood goes through a rough patch during the season and we get him in for a big finish, but these are trend breaking number on the back of 175 last week. He has a BE of 65 and is playing like the big boys in the $700K bracket.
Dayne Zorko (MID, $682,000) Also owned by just 3% of coaches, Zork has gone to the next level under a new coach and he doesn’t look like slowing down. He is averaging 127 on the season after pumping out 157 this week and has a BE of 76. A lowest score of 108 on the season shows how he is rolling and he should be good again this week at the GABBA.
As always, use the comment to discuss your trade ideas in the comments, I’m currently patching up my sh*t bench:
Eddy to Kennedy-Harris
Miles to Myers
@RoyDT (#41 for the week)
