Motts Movers R14 – The Mids

Written by Motts on July 6 2010

This edition looks at your best options to replace the great Michael Barlow. I’m keeping it to players priced roughly what he was worth or less.

S Pendlebury ($570,800 $+1,200 ($-24,400), 110.50) – last 5 round average: 127.20
C Judd ($569,500 $-10,100 ($-19,800), 123.18) – one sub-100 round for the year: R13’s 97 against Freo.
L Montagna ($568,100 $-1,400 ($-100,100), 118.43) – a bit erratic but capable of some massive scores and coming off a 155 against the Dees.
D Cross ($562,300 $+4,300 ($+12,800), 113.36) – last 5 round average: 120.40.
J Selwood ($548,200 $-2,800 ($-40,700), 111.64) – last 5 round average: 119.00
K Simpson ($466,500 $+15,500 ($-32,500), 105.36) – not an outright gun like the others but will make you $100k to upgrade another position and scored a lazy 151 against the Lions last Thursday.

Other cheap options you may want to consider are the DPP’s Gilbee, Pavlich and Didak. Any extra flexibility you can beef your team up with before the finals can only be a good thing.

  1. Is Juddy carrying anything? Hard to go past Paul Chapman or potential Brownlow medalist, Dane Swan if you already have Jesus. I think there’ll be a lot of converts this week.
    Did anyone notice that Barlow’s value has matured by $454,500? Not only is that sweeter than candy, but, surely, has to be a SC record.

  2. Leaning towards Montagna at this point. Should continue form all the way to finals. Although, you could pretty much throw a dart at an of those guys listed and come up with a winner.

  3. David Mundy (436,900 $-12,000 ($+4,500), 90.50) With only 2,821 coaches knowing his alive in SC land, Muns could be a smoking gun come SC finals time. With Barlow going down I believe Mundy will play more in the middle and his scoring should skyrocket from here on end.

  4. Thanks for the posting Motts. I have 4 of the 6 you mentioned alsready with the other 2 Cross and Simpson on my radar, but I’m also considering a couple of unique picks:
    Shane Tuck $541K – this guy is under the radar. Avg 108; 9/12 games 100+ with 4 of those 120+, plays Port in R22 against whom he scored 163 earlier in the year. Less than 2,000 people have him.
    Matt Priddis $545K – ball magnet who can score big consistently. Avg 109; Only 1 < 80, 9/14 games 100+ with 6 (yes 6/14!) of those 120+. Less than 6,000 people have him.
    Their teams are pretty pathetic (sorry to their supporters) but these guys almost always rack up the points – probably as there is not many decent players to share points with.
    Tuck is a week or 2 wait though given his rare low score last week of 70. If you can bench cover Barlow till then might make a bit of cash.
