Motts' Movers – R16

Written by Motts on 11:18 am, July 14 2009

I’m back after a week off and thanks to Duck for covering me last week with his magnificently titled column – The Ducks Guts. I’ve got myself an issue or two to attend to this week. As previously mentioned by the very diligent Duck, Jed is down for 9 months with an ACL and with West Coast tanking their way to the finish line, Massive Cox will undoubtedly be sent for surgery on an injury he doesn’t have. Who am I going to consider? Read on.

Backs

  • Josh Drummond ($457,900, 104.08) – scored 130 last week and still dropped $40k courtesy of his R11 score of 3.

Motts Movers – R14

Written by Motts on 8:49 am, June 30 2009

Backs

  • Jed Adcock ($463,600, 89.62) – Jed’s a star. Jed had some lean weeks in the middle of the season but Jed is back. Jed has scored 4 tons over the last 5 rounds averaging 105.6 over the same period. I like Jed. I’ve got Jed. I like saying Jed.
  • Shannon Hurn ($433,500, 86.38) – When I saw Shurn in Sheedy’s team at the beginning of the year I thought “you’re a dope, Sheeds”. I then knocked him off a couple of weeks later when I played him. But over the last 3 rounds Shurn has averaged 102.67.

Motts' Movers – R13

Written by Motts on 12:40 am, June 24 2009

Backs
Couple of cheap options for you here. And I couldn’t go without mentioning a Rolls Royce too:

  • Greg Broughton ($302,900, 89.40) – the kid has improved every game since he started culminating in a 119 against Stevie J last week. Can proudly say I’ve had him since Day 1.
  • Nathan Grima ($234,300, 78.00) – Got this fella in early too. In 4 games he’s managed a 92 as well as last week’s 113.
  • Paul Duffield ($582,200, 106.27) – I hesitated on putting this guy in this week given he’s playing the Pies at the MCG on Saturday arvo but I watched last week and he was magnificent and his numbers don’t lie.

Motts' Movers – Stupid Split Round 12

Written by Motts on 8:17 am, June 11 2009

Right, so I’m a little late this week so this will again be short, sharp and to the point.

Backs I rikey

  • L Hodge ($453,700, 83.75) – one game back and a 97 proves he’s good to go. Cheap at this price too.
  • C Newman ($502,400, 101.55) – rarely scores under 100 and won’t chew through your hard earned.
  • C Enright ($453,900, 92.18) – this recommendation is for you, Agers. I’d like to see more tons from him though.

Backs I no rikey

  • A Carrazzo ($464,600,

Motts’ Movers R11

Written by Motts on 8:38 am, June 3 2009

Haven’t got a lot of time on my hands this week so I’m putting all positions in the one post.

Backs
Looking to trade out The Chad? Me too. Here are some super options:

  • Xavier Ellis ($392,100, 78.33) – this Top 10 draft pick had his average seriously skewed by the game against the Roos when he broke his foot (he scored 26). The other 2 games he’s played he’s scored 95 and 135. Do yourself a favour.
  • Jed Adcock ($413,200, 85.60) – has scored 113 and 106 in his last 2 rounds showing he’s back to form.

Motts Movers – Forwards R10

Written by Motts on 4:23 am, May 27 2009

Right so who am I considering this week for Shaun Higgins. The decision rests on whether I choose to upgrade down back for Waite or if I upgrade the forward line. I may do both (Telis) but the fellas I like up front are:

  • Lance Franklin ($469,600, 90.78) – the big fella is just warming up and its no coincidence that the Hawks have found their wings.
  • Ryan O’Keefe ($486,800, 90.00) – had a poor start to the year but that makes him a steal. Has scored 100’s the last 3 weeks straight.
  • Cyril Rioli (433,600,

Motts Movers' – Rucks R10

Written by Motts on 1:22 am, May 27 2009

I bet you thought I’d be running out of ruck options that I hadn’t already talked about by now. Wrong.

  • Darren Jolly ($419,800, 97.33) – sure his average is massively skewed by a 190 explosion in R2 but he’s still in the top 5 rucks in the comp.
  • Matthew Kreuzer ($432,600, 87.56) – no sophmore slump for this bloke. Still learning the game but with an average of a veteran.

Don’t get sucked in by:

  • Will Minson ($315,600, 59.89) – it’s a little known fact that I drive Will Minson’s late dad’s car.

Motts' Movers – Midfielders R10

Written by Motts on 11:17 pm, May 26 2009

This week’s crop of midfielders. Would love to be looking at them myself but I’ve got a couple of issues named Higgins and Waite that I’ll be attending to front and back ahead of a big game against The Sleek Greek (no Sol, I’m not being racist).

  • Dane Swan ($512,100, 107.22) – looks to be through recent injury concerns with his 149 last week and for his average is pretty darn cheap.
  • Peter Burgoyne ($417,300, 89.71) – has posted 3 tons from 7 games this year but has mingled some shit scores in with them.
