My Team – The Forwards

Written by Motts on 7:01 am, February 12 2010

FORWARDS

Original revisions had a ton of blokes in here that I considered to be good value. Names like Rusling, Reid, Jetta, Walker, Veszpremi and Burton. In the end though, I’ve gone with proven performers that don’t have such an injury question mark over their heads. Given my ruck division and some of my backs I think it was the right decision to make.

A Didak ($558,600, 105.18) – as much as I hate having a Pies player in the team you gotta give a spot to a bloke averaging over 100. If I could afford Roo I’d take him but I can’t so a small forward who spends time in the guts will have to do.

My Team – The Rucks

Written by Motts on 7:00 am, February 11 2010

As I mentioned yesterday, there are some bargains to be had here but as with most bargains in this comp there is a risk you sign up to if you draft them. More often than not its injury and the two blokes I’ve placed on the field this year both missed significant numbers of games in ’09. As with my backs, the strategy is to take the value gain before trading up to fellas like Clark, Cox (if his foot stays good), Tippett, McIntosh and Kreuzer.

RUCKS

D Hille ($311,300, 73.25) – starred in the comp a couple of years ago but played only 4 games in 2009 before blowing out his knee in the Anzac Day match.

My Team – The Mids

Written by Motts on 7:00 am, February 10 2010

MIDFIELDERS
This group generates more points per player than any other because they just get so much of the leather. My strategy here is to go with guys on the field that I think will score heavily for me and grab a couple of rookies on the bench that I think will go up nicely in price. Here we go:

G Ablett ($744,200, 140.11) – Captain selection automatically made every week. Yes you could get 2 players for him but you can only make one of those guys captain. I’m still not over the line with him but at this stage he’s in.

My team – The Backs

Written by Motts on 9:15 am, February 9 2010

After spending more than a couple of hours on Supercoach to date I’m ready to put up a first cut of my team. I’m not promising this will be the final revision, I’m just saying that this is where my head is at today. Form in the NAB Cup, injuries, and arrests for possession and trafficking will all play a part on the final make-up of the side.

So in no particular order, here goes:

THE BACKS
This position is going to generate most of your value in 2010. My strategy this year is to gain the value increase on a lot of these guys and then flip them for more proven (expensive) performers.

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.
