Nathan Grima ($483,600, 105.8, 47) – NATHAN! played his first year in 2009 averaging 82 over 13 games. The next year he averaged 91 over 17 games. Last year he played only 12 games and averaged 70. So far this year he’s played 5 games and scored 68, 97, 120, 126, and 118. I’m actually starting to think that he may be the real deal.
Beau Waters ($524,400, 100.91, 125) – On a week when not a lot of premium defenders played, Big Bad Beau came to the party with a 105 against the Pies. That was his 7th ton for the year. He hasn’t scored less than 76 all season.
Andrew Carrazzo ($465,300, 93.2, 147) – He didn’t play last week but Carrots is Mottsy’s choice value pick of the week. If you can hold off a week, do so because he hasn’t scored 147 all year so far. The reason he’s so cheap is a broken scapula very early in the R4 Essendon game. Take that week out and he’s averaging a whopping 118. Now that’s what I call value!
Scott McMahon ($429,700, 83.83, 65) – Here’s one you might’ve missed. Scotty started the year in average fashion before registering a 98 against Sydney in R4. He then goes missing for 6 rounds coming back after North’s R11 bye and scoring 99 and 94 in the next 2 rounds.
Corey Enright ($454,000, 89.64, 101) – “BS 4 CE”. That’s what’s been carved into a tree near Big Sexy’s house. He loves him. Personally, I’m not convinced on Enright. Sure he belted out 123 against the Swans on Friday night but the game before that he could only manage a 49 against Carlton. The consistency just isn’t there this year. If you’re of the thinking that he could turn it all around in the second half of the season though, $454k is a very tempting price. Me? I’m passing.
Brian Lake ($394,400, 83, 60) – You’ve probably already got him – over a third of all teams do – but I’m going to mention him anyway. Can score tons (he’s had 3 this year) but more often than not he’ll ease out 80-something for you. Like.
Shaun Edwards ($183,700, 54, -40) – Last 2 weeks: 70 and 81. You don’t need me to tell you that’s great value for a guy under $200k
Brodie Martin ($270,200, 67.75, 7) – Because of their run home, we love Adelaide players in SC this year so I’m giving you the early heads up on Ol Brodes. He’s never played more than 5 games a year in his 4 year career with the Cows but this could be the break-out. His last 3 rounds have been 67, 92, 63.
Nathan Brown ($239,700, 54.17, 11) – If you’re a one eyed Pies supporter, trade him in today. You’ll love seeing another splash of black and white in your backline to go with Heath Shaw, Harry O and Marty Clarke. If not, give him a miss.
