Not a lot to comment on up the premium end of the Forward selections this round so the theme for the R10 Forward Movers is value.
R Douglas ($467,400 $+22,100 ($+97,800), 83.90) – Over the last 3 rounds he’s averaged 109 so if you can overlook the fact he plays for Adelaide and are prepared to take a humungous risk then this could be your boy. Word of warning: between rounds 1 and 6 most of his scores were between 68 and 75 with a lazy 21 thrown in for good measure in R1.
J Grant ($311,400 $+27,900 ($+152,100), 76.67) – Traded this guy into my DT in R7 so I’ve been watching him for a few weeks and I have to say I haven’t been disappointed. He went #5 in the ’07 draft behind Krooz, Cotchin, Masten and Morton then missed the second half of the ’08 season with OP. Only played one game last year after his only kick in that game resulted in a behind. Came on in R5 this year and hasn’t looked back scoring generally between 65 and 76 but breaking out for 99 against the Roos. Still has plenty of upside if you’re looking for a replacement bench player or maybe even a F7.
L Jetta ($289,500 $+57,600 ($+57,600), 92.33) – Perhaps an even better option than Grant is Leroy. Jumped $57k this week after playing his 3rd game. Had a 50 in the first, jumped that up to 127 in the second and then eased off for 100 in the third – kicking goals in all of them. Played only 6 games in 2009 which was his 3rd year in the AFL but has built up his endurance and is fitting very nicely into Knightsy’s run and gun game plan.
Anyone else got a player that is even better value than these blokes? Don’t keep it to yourself – let us know about it!
