Is is any wonder the Cats and the Hawks are dominating right now with this kind of talent up front? It makes for a very intriguing match-up this Saturday night at the G.
Steve Johnson ($501,900, 147, 111.44, 31) – SJ saw last week that he wasn’t a topline Thriller and the Steve was angry that day, my friends. He took his frustrations out on the unfortunate Dogs to the tune of 147 to bring his Last 3 Average to 133.67. Over those 3 weeks he’s kicked 12.6. Only scored 79 against the Hawks 7 weeks ago so maybe don’t bring him in this week but with a 31 BE he is going to go up in price again.
Jarryd Roughead ($488,400, 133, 104.90, 79) – Continues to cut a swathe through opposition teams. Since R4 he’s scored 6 tons on the trot, gone up $115k and taken his average up 23 points a game. That is massive! Has his work cut out for him this week against the Cats but he scored 109 against them back in R5.
Matthew Stokes ($408,500, 112, 91.22, 33) – Bet you didn’t expect to see this guy’s name mentioned here! Over the last 3 games, Stokes has averaged 113.7 making him 6th on the list of Forwards (behind SJ, Buddy, Rough, Kennedy, and Petrie) for that period. He’s never averaged over 86 for an entire season so don’t be rushing out to buy him but on his recent performances he deserved a mention.
Honourable mentions: Neon Leon, ROK, Brad Green, Goodesy, Sam Gilbert and Cyril.
Travis Varcoe ($291,500, 26, 65.50, 116)
Josh Hill ($258,600, 35, 71.22, 114)
Stephen Milne ($273,700, 52, 67.80, 81)
Matthew Jaensch ($354,400, 90, 75.67, 55) – That’s 6 games in a row he’s scored between 85 and 97.
Tendai Mzungu ($140,700, 64, 51.67, -46) – On the off chance that you didn’t bring him in last week – and over 64,000 of us did – he’s still worth it.
Alex Johnson ($241,900, 95, 63.71, -7) – I’d forgotten he was a D/F DPP – makes him even more valuable.
Special mentions: Jack Steven, Jeff Garlett, Jack Watts, and Jeremy Howe (1 game: 97).
Final note: Alan Didak for $279k?!? At some point he’s going to turn it around, folks. Who is going to break first and bring him on board? His BE this week is 46. In the last 2 he’s scored 86 and 64.
