If you don’t know about Steele Sidebottom and how he’s been tearing the comp a new one yet then you need our help more than I thought. If you don’t know about him, you won’t have him and at $600k he’s probably a little dear for you right now so here’s 3 other Premiums that should be on your radar:
Paul Chapman ($527,600, 103.11, 90) – He’s still cheap. Angry and cheap! Give his bald head a rub Benny Hill style and climb aboard.
Steve Johnson ($507,800, 90, 90) – Gave the competition something to think about with a truckload of midfield time last Friday night against the Dogs and a SC score of 146. I think I read somewhere online that he’d made himself captain in his own SC team. I am seriously considering him for my forward line.
Jarryd Roughead ($500,600, 100.38, 107) – What bothers me about Roughy is: what happens to his scores once Bailey comes back? If he heads back to the frontline to play as a key position forward he’s not going to score nearly as much as he is in the ruck where he’s near the ball the whole time. Hmmmmm….
Sam Wright ($351,100, 72.75, 35) – Wouldn’t know him if I fell over him and have yet to see a North game this year so I can’t really offer an opinion as to how he goes about it but over the last 4 weeks he’s gone for a pair of 83’s and then a 97 against the Lions on the weekend. Whacko!
Danny Stanley ($422,300, 98, 62) – Shhhhh keep this one under your hat because no-one knows about him yet but in his first 2 games for the year, Stan has achieved the impressive results of a 92 and a 104. He played every game last year for the Suns and averaged 78. If he’s gotten better, which it looks like he has, you might want to give him some thought.
Kurt Tippett ($465,800, 102.56, 74) – In his second week without trusty mulletted sidekick, Tee Dub, K-Tip belted out his third ton in a row. Y’know how I said that a standard deviation under 20 was good? Kurt’s is 32.04. He can go big (eg R1’s 150) but he can stink it up with the best of them too (R5: 65 and R6: 42). You’d be worried if the coach you were facing had him but I’d steer clear.
FYI: Jay Shulz ($358,800, 76.29, 13) has had a couple of handy weeks: 110 and 96, Drew Petrie ($459,900) has found some recent form – 122 & 121, and Luke Breust ($429,000) looked lively against the Tiges on Saturday – he’s averaged 101 over the last 3.
No bargain basement prices for you here this week but some good performers nonetheless.
Dayne Zorko ($170,500, 66.33, -79) – Followed up his ton with an 83. Those who didn’t pick him up last week (myself included) are having their resolve tested.
Andrew McQualter ($246,100, 87, -23) – Not cheap cheap but his first 2 games as a Sun (he was a Sainter last year) have seen returns of 80 and 94.
Ahmed Saad ($221,600, 66, -18) – He scored a ton (105 to be precise) and 2 weeks ago nailed an 81 so I’m giving him a shout out.
