Daniel Jackson ($449,900, 118.33) – I knew this ranga was good but I’ve been wary because of his propensity to miss games either through injury or suspension. Has a tough game to get through this week against the Pies but his BE of 42 means he should add to the $29k he’s already increased.
Andrew Embley ($473,300, 137.33) – I confess, I thought Embley was past it. 30 in a couple of months I thought his best was behind him. I’m not afraid to say it, I was wr-wr-wr… not right yet. Went up $50k last week and has a BE of 37 so you can expect him to go up again. The big test will be this week against the Hawkers at Aurora. Has missed only 2 games in 2 seasons.
Brent Moloney ($430,100, 111.67) – It may seem strange that I’ve selected Mr Moloney as a Mover this week given he’s in the Melbourne doghouse at the moment but give it some thought. Here’s a bloke already averaging 111 with a “drinking problem” who will now kick the booze and knuckle down for the rest of the season. Not only that, he’s up against the Witches Hats this week and has byes coinciding with non-competitive weeks. No. Brainer. Oh, and did I mention that Melbourne faces the GC again in R23 when you should be planning on being in the SC semi’s?
Honourable mentions: Luke Hodge ($566,800, 114), Cameron Ling ($374,400, 114) – neither have yet changed in value.
Alan Didak ($458,700, 74.33) – Had it going from the first game last year with a 116 against the Dogs but didn’t have a questionable shoulder then. A 125 BE this week ain’t beyond him (especially given he’ll be playing a depleted Tiger defence), all the same though, I’d sit tight a little longer if you’re considering him.
Kane Cornes ($458,800, 79) – Port are getting owned by every team they play at the moment and its being reflected in Kane’s scores. With Cassisi out, its one less gun midfielder the opposition has to tag meaning they’re going to Kornes and Boak. Even if this guy’s price drops to $350k I wouldn’t bring him in.
Kade Simpson ($451,400, 79.67) – Averaged 100 last year playing in a stacked midfield which is no mean feat and scored 124 on debut against The Tiges but how can you only score 52 against Gold Coast?? Members of the cheer squad marking Carlton shots at goal that night scored more than that! Now has a 188 BE against the Bombers this week so will drop more. Carlton have their first bye in R8.
