Motts Movers R3 – The Backs

Written by Motts on April 11 2011

For those of you unfamiliar with these posts, throughout the season I will throw the spotlight on those blokes that have been performing beautifully over the last few rounds and put a rocket up those that need one. I tend to steer clear of the rookies – that’s the domain of Big Sexual – instead focussing on players who provide great value for money. Let’s get on with the show. This week’s heroes are:

Jed Adcock ($373,400, 108) – Opened up the year with a rather pedestrian 71 against the Dockers at the Gabba before hitting his stride against the Dogs at Etihad with 111. Then last week at the MCG against the Dees he broke out for a 143 and consequently went up $40k. Has a bye this week so won’t go up in value again (his BE is -3) and with his second bye occurring in another non-competitive round, all those coaches out there trying to win their leagues should definitely have a look at him.

Josh Gibson ($399,300, 104.33) – I swore I’d never trade J-Gib in again after breaking the cardinal rule a couple of years ago and trading him in on a Tuesday only to find out on Wednesday that he’d fallen over in his bathroom, bumped his head and would be out for the season. But his average this year with the Horks is making me take a second look. I thought he was just a straight defender but his three scores of 94 (v Adelaide), 86 (v Melbourne) and 133 (v The Tiges) reflect that he’s being used more as a linkman when they run it forward. R4 BE: 49.

Matt Suckling ($283,500, 100.33) – A bit of depol action wouldn’t go astray with Mr Suckling but while he’s running like the wind out of the Hawk backlines and averaging over 100 he can call himself whatever the hell he likes. He went up $60k this week after scoring 66, 139 and 96 but if you run as fast as you can and jump off the end of the pier you won’t quite miss the boat. His R4 BE is -45.

Honourable mentions go to Nick Suban ($333,900, 98) and Robert Murphy ($377,000, 103.3)

And the villains:

Nathan Lovett-Murray ($355,500, 42.33) – No other player has lost more money in the first 3 rounds than NLM. You can get him for $60k cheaper than the 5,163 friends and family members of his that slotted him in from the get-go.

Cameron Bruce ($440,600, 63) – Was always going to take time to get his act together in the Hawks backline. He’s a smart, proud bloke though so I have no doubt it will happen. The trick will be working out when he’s at his lowest price and bringing him in that week.

Daniel Connors ($364,800, 49.67) – Only 6,236 coaches picked DC and I know one of them. This guy prides himself on being able to spot unrecognised talent which then gives him a Point of Difference and on occasion can make him a lot of coin. I do believe he has plans to trade Mr Connors out of his team this week. Experiment: failed.

  1. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – TRUST YOUR GUT AT THE START OF THE SEASON!

    Had both Adcock and Gibson in my last/final/this is it/no more trades/i’m done/it’s been a long road but i’m there now/absolute last and final team before Round 1 only to make a couple of trades to fit Goddard in.

    Gibson was one casualty of that. Juddy and Bartel were two others!!!!

    And Adcock was tossed aside for the ‘bonus’ forward Mick Hurley. They were both the same price but ended up taking the safe option with the bloke who hasn’t been injured and is the coach’s pet.

    Hindsight is a beautiful thing!

  3. picked up adcock from the start, thanks to allfooty.info’s recommendation I think. Since Brown got injured he seems to have upped his game and if things turn sour, his value will have risen enough to trade him in for a gun.
    Also picked Hurn from the start but he’s been a mixbag so far.

  4. motts, what’s your opinion on grundy? averaging around 78, and went down 22k this week…

    anyone think its worth trading him out for adcock?

  5. OK, it seems like Zac Smith is going to be a star, what does everyone think of this idea? Trade out Sandilands before his price drops too much and use both Zac and Petrie to cover the byes, as they have both had 1 each now,on the ground instead with Cox. Petrie is currently in the Fwds with J.Tippet as the other spot on the ruck bench. Then use the cash to upgrade Irons to Hodge in the Mids? Petrie was selected to make money with the intention of trading him out before the finals and I may even be able to use him to bring Sandi back in. Too many trades used is the biggest issue I have with this, thoughts?

  6. Thats what I like about this site, people that offer great advice and make a bloke stop and think, thanks, I just get greedy sometimes and want it all but averaging 2180 so far so your right, I should be patient.Sandi has done nothing wrong and wont lose much cash, I just felt like I had too many rucks!

  10. just realised that I’m in trouble this round, i know i know we don’t verse anyone in leagues but i still want to get a solid score, when i saw that st kilda, dogs and brissy had the bye, I said, well thats good because i know I have a lot of saints, but i only have liberatroe for the dogs and no brisbane player. DARN IT, forgot that i had adcock, so I just went to put him on the bench, went to put Ryan Lester on, DARN IT, Lester playes for Brisbane!, And already I have Goddard sitting on the bench for Duigan coming in. OK then, 1 more player on the bench, who is that? It’s Buckley, awesome…..but……he has a groin injury doesnt he? Doesn’t have the baind aid, anyone know whether he is going to play? and if not, do i trade him, or just put up with a 0?

  11. Low, Low, Low, Low, Low, Low, Low, Low………
    Pounce on these blokes in a few weeks if you don’t have them!

    Brendon GODDARD – 597,400 – BreakEven = 187
    Bryce GIBBS – 507,700 – BreakEven = 140
    Joel SELWOOD – 573,200 – BreakEven = 227
    Luke HODGE – 566,800 – BreakEven = 152
    James PODSIADLY – 446,800 – BreakEven = 210
    Daniel GIANSIRACUSA – 406,100 – BreakEven = 144
    Alan DIDAK – 458,700 – BreakEven = 140

    A couple of blokes here that I might have a look at, there are some other players aswell with high breakevens,like, Boomer Hrvey 162 and Sammy Gilbert in the 140s. I’ll be keeping a close eye on Hodgey and Gia throughout the next couple of weeks.

  12. Can someone please explain why Shaun Burgoyne’s price went DOWN this week? At the start of the year, to get a price of 482 (what he’s at now) it required an average of 99. Over the first 3 rounds, he’s averaged 106. Someone care to explain?

  13. I’m considering bring in ryan griffen this week before he rises in price, he has been very solid first 2 round and looks like he might continue?

Motts Movers R3 – The Backs

Written by Motts on April 14 2010

These fellas were all above $500k when the season began but because of one crappy outing they’ve all dropped huge amounts. Keep an eye on them.

Ryan Hargrave ($447,700, 52.67) – Dropped the 5th highest amount of cash in the league last week ($66,500) mostly because of a 9 due to an early injury in the game against the Hawks. Will continue to bleed cash until that 9 is no longer counted towards his breakeven in a couple of weeks so keep an eye on him. Could be one of the backline bargains of the year.

Nathan Bock ($483,700, 71.33) – His problems seem symptomatic of the problems faced by the rest of the Cows right now. Had a 50 against Melbourne who won so you can’t argue he didn’t see enough of it. Prior to that had a 92 and a 72. He’s already a bargain at this price but I reckon give it a couple more weeks before drafting him in.

Chris Newman ($480,700, 72.00) – Normally this bomber is super reliable premium averaging 100 a week. His big problem was a 16 against The Baggers in R1 because since then he’s scored 128 and 72. If you’re looking for a backline trade and you REALLY like the Tigers then I reckon this is the week to get on him.

I don’t need to tell you this but the ones who are starring are:

Nick Freaking Malceski ($367,300, 127.00) – Damn I wish I had this guy. I wish I had him to the point that I’m bitter about it. I refuse to bring him in now out of pride. That and because he’s just gone up $93,800 and I know I shoulda paid less for him. Faces North (A), WC (H) and Brisbane (H) over the next 3 weeks so its not likely that he’s going to go backwards much. Maybe he’ll do his knee again…

Luke Hodge ($519,300, 123.67) – We all knew he was undervalued when the season started and he’s proved it to us. We all gained $33,700 with him in our team last week. The guy just throws himself into everything. He’s absolutely fearless. He’s kicked a goal in every game he’s played so far and even with the pink pig on him he managed a 94. Upcoming opponents include Collingwood, North and the Dons.

Heath Grundy ($422,000, 112.00) – What a start to the year for Reg. Has just got better and better with a 73, a 126 and last week a 137 which saw his price rise close to $50k. With the same 3 games coming up as The Eski he’s going to continue to rise.

Is there anyone I’ve missed?

  1. Hence why I said hold off on him. Der.

    (Motts will in future read the injury report that he posted earlier in the day before making recommendations)

    1. Feeling your pain on Malceski mate. Did the same as you – went with Kennelly. Hurts even more that the guy top my leauge has him. Killing me.
      I also have Waite same as you…you hanging on to him? Surely he will bounce back? Think the entire carlton team will be bouncing back this weekend! (I hope!!)

  2. Gday Motts. i feel the bitterness for malceski too there pal. same feeling i got last year with gilbert. does it matter that he’s up $93K as a reason to not get him now though? if the prices didn’t go up until Rd 4, and malceski’s starting price was $367K, you’d grab him this week, true. i guess the concern if he does go down its 2 wasted trades, 1 to get him in, 1 to get him out again, rather than one to get him out if you had him from the get-go. those of us that didn’t start him we all deterred by that very thing, injury recurrence. I have bock, with josh hunt on the pine as cover.(maguire took his spot on the ground). should i hold on to the big fella. he is a gun after all. have enright, hodge, duffield, kennelly, waters, nason (bock,hunt,goose)

    1. I’m wondering whether the Malceski bitterness going around is a touch of ‘double burn’ – burnt when you had him coming back from injury (and his scores were horrible) and now burnt that you don’t have him during his scoring blitz. I dare say there would be a few others suffering the same malady with Beau Waters.

      1. At the end of Lockout I only had room for 3 of the following players:
        Malceski, Kennelly, Goose, Waters.
        My final decision was Dropping Malecski for Kennelly – but with Waters and Goose performing so well I am really happy with my backline so far:
        Goddard, Enright, Hodge, Kennelly, Ladson, Hargrave Goose, (Waters, Nason).
        Only Hargrave has really disappointed, but he’ll bounce back after a really physical game against the Hawks in which he got clobbered!!

  3. Not sure where all the injury prone stuff came from with Malcheski. Last year he wasnt injured at all. He was dropped for poor form/confidence. He looked scared out on the field. I watched him play a reserves game and he was the same even at that level. Totally different this year.

      1. Not last year. He ruptured it in Feb 2008. Had the surgery days later. Over 2 years ago! He has not had a problem with his knee since.

  4. I feel the Malceski pain/bitterness to Motts due to the fact he burnt me last year when I jumped on and he went like a crippled crab so I was dead against getting him this year… but hey you can’t get them all right!

  5. I have dead Waite, should i use a trade to get Malceski? I have Kennelly aswell. Not sure if its wasting a trade amd too risky to have 2 swans in the backline?

      1. Agreed Peter. I have had Malceski and Kennelly all year and having both looks to be a safe choice. Malceski was bound to be ‘The Burner’ of SC 2010 as he was Disgusting last year and hurt many a supercoach deeply (Myself Included).

        To be as good as he is this year makes him the biggest Burner of 2010. (For those of u who dont have him after being burnt last year). Its like acid in your throat isnt it?

        I reckon Kennelly will be topping 100 in the near future as he gets back to his best, if not, he is doing enough to be good value at this stage.

        1. Swans have never been high scorers before. I have 3 in my team and putting in a forth one that has burnt me before seems risky..

          Should Waite be traded this week or should I wait?

  6. have a lot of man-love for malceski right now. to be fair but i think most people wouldve said kennelly or malceski was a flip of the coin decision. no one couldve picked malceski start was gonna be THIS good. sometimes you just get lucky!!

  8. I had Hunt in my back-line all preseason and was tossing up who to put in out of Kennelly and Malceski, as they both play a similar role and were both trying to push back into the team. In the end went with Kennelly coz he wasn’t coming off new radical knee treatment basically. Anyway, bout 10 minutes till final lockout changed hunt for malceski for some unknown reason and I know you shouldn’t make those last second trades but i couldn’t help it. But how lucky was that? So far…

    1. by the way, swans game style is better suited to supercoach rather than dreamteam, but in saying that they went from being 16th ranked DT scorers in ’09 to the 3rd ranked DT scorers this year. I have 5 of them – Eski, Tadgh, ROK, Seaby and Jetta.
