Max Gawn (RUC, $8,500) Gawn is one of those guys that relies of his ruck dominance to spump out big scores, ie. needs hitouts. He was a beast last year because he averaged a league-high 42 per game. After a slow return from injury, he’s back! No coincidence that he’s had 52 hitouts in the last two weeks and posted scores of 113 and 140 (after 4 straight weeks of not breaking 40 hitouts or or90 points)
Luke Dunstan (MID, $7,800) provides a genuine option due to a disappointing start to the season, combined with his career best form in the last three weeks. Before round 18, he had played 63 three games at an average of just 63, with four hundred point games. Since round 18 he has played three games with scores of 107, 116 and 100… something has clicked and we can get a piece of it for a bargain price.
James Sicily (FWD, $7,300) Obvious pick. Thanks to a slow start to the year, he’s providing $9k value at a discount. Averaging 9.7 marks per game since Round 14 – Ranked #1 in the league. (Very interesting to see that with some more defenders back there vs Tigers, Hawks sent Gunston back to the forward line rather than Sicily. The big ginger nut is down back to stay… and so should his marks).
Ryan Clarke (MID, $5,500) Rebuild at full throttle has given a kid Clarke more midfield time of late. That’s resulted in a career-high in disposals (31 last week) and back-to-back career-highs in fantasy output with 81 and 101. Risk is low at that price, but the upside is big.
Patty Ryder (RUC, $9,700) No Grundy makes Ryder an automatic selection. He’s already averaging 42 hitouts per game over the past 6 weeks (no ruckman has recorded more in that time) – what will he do against an the inexperienced Cox? Lowest score of 88 in his last 6.
My shout team!
Matt Scharenberg (DEF, $5,700) 82, 98 and 96 in his last three. Found a nice little niche in Collingwood’s backline, used as the Switch guy a lot. Averaging 9.3 marks per game in his last three games – ranked #3 in the league in that time. Bargain based on those numbers and recent role.
