Motts Movers R10 – The Forwards

Written by Motts on June 2 2011

Thrillers

Jarryd Roughead ($472,300, 118, 101.78, 80) – There are 19,695 coaches out there right now that are praying to the SC Gods that whatever moves Clarko makes between now and the end of the year that he keeps Jarryd in the ruck. The Orange Roughie bashed out his 5th ton in a row on the weekend. Interestingly his stats didn’t come from the ruck though – he only had 5 hitouts – they came mostly from an increase in marks and kicks (he had his biggest game for the year in both). Up against a Sandi-less Freo at the G this week you can be sure he’s going to stretch his streak to 6.

Lance Franklin ($535,700, 109, 117.67, 106) – Rough’s brother in brown and gold arms is also flying at the moment – he kicked his 4th ton in a row last week. Accuracy is still an issue though – against The Mutts he kicked 3.5 taking his tally for the year to 35.34. If he increased his conversion rate to 75% his scores (and price) would be massive.

Colin Sylvia ($481,700, 113, 107.56, 116) – Col’s the leading SC scorer at the bruise-free-Dees and the only one to be maintaining the rage whilst those around him faulter. Last week’s 113 was his 5th ton in 9 games and took his average over the last 3 to 107.7. Plays most of his remaining games in Melbourne and has a pretty nice run in the last 4: WC (ES), Richmond (MCG), Gold Coast (MCG) and Port (AS).

Honourable mentions: Stevie J and Pav.

Chillers

Matthew Bate ($314,400, 62, 47.67, )

Stephen Milne ($288,100, 52, 69.56, )

Ricky Petterd ($320,100, 65, 66.33, )

Drillers

Robbie Gray ($340,900, 132, 80.50, -16) – Robbie’s gone bang, bang in the last couple scoring 114 and 132. He’s always had a lot of potential but struggled with persistent hammy problems last year managing only 9 games. He missed the R3 game against the Cats this year but that’s it. Faces the Blues this week at home and then has a bye.

Leon Davis ($374,300, 113, 77.43, 52) – Hellooooooo Neon! 2008 avg: 95.3, 2009 avg: 111.4, 2010 avg: 69.2. Last 3 week avg: 100.3. In SC as a Forward but spending most of his time in Defense lately. And getting quite comfortable back there too judging by his SC scores.

Matthew Jaensch ($342,200, 95, 73.88, 50) – How’s the consistency been with MJ recently? His last 5 scores have oscillated between 85 and 97. At $342k I’d say that makes him a bargain.

Special mentions: Sam Gilbert (encouraging signs), Isaac Smith (lets hope he gets named this week), Tendai!, Tom Lynch of the Gold Coast variety, Matthew Stokes, Ben McGlynn (I’ve had him since the start of the season – you don’t have to go through the pain – just pick him up this week for $315k), Michael Newton, Jack Steven, Brad Green, Matthew de Boer and Chris Knights

  2. I was on the juice when I traded in Juice, now he’s on the juice for the next 4-6 weeks with a foot injury. Waste of a trade, now Juice will turn into Gu 😉

  3. Been waiting for this article all week, think I’m the only one not upgrading my MIDs.

    No love for Rioli, got my finger on the trade button for Sylvia (yeah I’ll wait till 5pm)

  4. Serious lack of options in the forward/back department at the moment… I’m just going to finish off the mids this week then hold fire until something obvious appears. Mind you I’m only going for league wins.

  5. WHo would you keep as F8 for the finals?

    Breakevens this week are
    Dangerfiled BE= 148
    krakour BE = 68
    Darling BE = 97

    Have 300k and looking to upgrade one of these today?

    Already have N Roo, Pav, Franklin, Pav, ROK,
    Others on bench are Siposs, Matera, Richardson

  6. My only trade in the end was Libber > Mzungu

    I was just about to upgrade to Slyvia but didn’t for some reason. And he got injured and scored low so hopefully his corked thigh is not serious, his price will drop and I will get him this week. AM looking at Thompson for next week, then fisher the week after. Stevie J looks a good option but a little too unreliable for me I think!

Motts Movers R10 – The Forwards

Written by Motts on May 31 2010

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!

  1. Jack Riewoldt($455,000 $+28,400($+82,100),87.20)
    Well he’s no Nick but is dubbed as the next Buddy, he’s cheap at this price and a risk, but if he continues his recent form, he could explode in price. Past three match AVE- 110

      Your comment “he’s cheap at this price…” is based on what?
      In the same comment you advertise his past 3 game ave as 110 which is what’s caused his price to increase to an unprecedented level.
      Using references comparing him to his cousin and Buddy is akin to PA being hailed as the new Rocket Eade!
      The only “Moving” Jumpin’ Jack will be doin’ this year is down given:
      – plays for team that will win 4 games if lucky;
      – opposition will double/triple team him when they finally take him seriously due to having no forward support;
      – his current price demands scores of 110+ be consistently achieved.

  2. HAWKINS, Tom ($413,300 $+27,100 ($+33,700),75.5)
    He mixes his form a bit but since Ottens went down having a run on the ball has done his confidence the world of good and he is imposing himself on matches. He has averaged 100.66 in the last 3 weeks and with a break even of only 67 this week his prices looks set to go up!

  3. Tomahawk ($413,300 $+27,100 ($+33,700) 75.50 R11 b/e 67)
    Avg 101 in he’s last 3 games, looks like his finally got the Self confidence to play great footy and live up to the potential every bodies been raving about since coming to the big smoke from Finley.

          1. If you’ve got him and he keeps getting named week in, week out then you have to put him on the field. If you don’t have him then I think you’d wait to see at least one big score before bringing him in. Same thing goes for ROK.

            Until then, there are better options available. Undervalued premiums that are already scoring 100’s. Goodes.

          2. Yep, I would. For the sake of the game, lets just hope he hasn’t got OP. That guy is just magnificent to watch when he’s playing 100% healthy.

          3. Rolly polly’s last quarter last week was sensational in that he imposed himself on three crucial contests for the first time this year. That’s great news for those of us that used the sheep factor to bring him in for Roo.

      1. Roger – I would have preferred “Woosha”, “Woosh”, “JW” or “the most successfull captain/coach (in individual roles) in AFL history.

    1. Mate that’s like you waving the black and white flag with your mouth only half full of teeth and a hazy, opaque non-focussed look in your eyes. Are you related to Eddie?

        1. Fair enough – just to be on the record I have absolutely NO love for the Dorkers. Not because I’m an Eagles member and I’m an absolutely dedicated Sandgroper having represented WA and Aust. in another team sport but due to their inept management, recruiting and coaching structure bringing WA footy down and often considered the National whipping boys of the AFL comp.

  5. PS: In referring to AFL history, this has no reference to the previous suburban State based competition… think its called the VFL.

    1. Unless you’ve got 10+ trades left, wait ’til rd 16 and then decide as the SC finals are through rds 19-22.
      General reference to trading up is you want to gain 15+ PPG which may be problematic with your proposition.

  9. G’day guys. I’m looking for a good forward at the other end of the scale – I’m sitting on Hitchcock, Yarran and Gumbleton as my 7th, 8th and 9th forward at the moment and I want to downgrade one of them and upgrade another. Obviously I want the downgrade target (hopefully somewhere around 100k) to be someone who’s likely to get games. Any suggestions?
