Lets get going in the guts this week. First up, the villains:
Joel Selwood ($546,500, 101.5) – Perhaps I’m being a little rough considering he is averaging over 100 but when you pay $588k for a bloke you expect a little more. His scores are all over the shop (or as kb would say the standard deviation of his scores is quite high) culminating with the weekend’s 70 and corresponding $33k drop.
Adam Goodes ($531,600, 89.5) – In a bit of freefall at the moment because he has yet to crack triple figures. That price represents a total drop of just over $75k. For $600k you’d expect an average of at least 110. If you lost a close match on the weekend because of this guy’s 79 you’d be filthy.
Liam Anthony ($467,100, 84.75) – I know he’s a sophmore but where’s his 95 average from last year? Seems to be struggling against the good teams so with Hawthorn, Melbourne and Adelaide coming up over the next 4 weeks should get back up over $500k.
Sam Mitchell was very lucky not to get mentioned above because I gave him a serve last week. Vince, FRay, Cassisi, and Tambling are also disappointing at the moment.
And the heroes:
James Macdonald ($451,300, 107.5) – OK I know he plays for the Dees but its pretty hard to argue with his numbers. Last two rounds have produced a 115 and a 135 (admittedly against Richmond and Adelaide). I’ve got a little bit of concern about how he’ll go when Cale Morton returns but only a little. Brisbane, North and the Dogs are coming up in his next three.
Shaun Higgins ($489,600, 105.0) – People often ask on this site “should I get Shaun Higgins or X”. Let me tell you: in 95% of the cases I am going to tell you to get Higgins. Especially when he’s under $500k! He delivers you a ton or very close to it every week. Travels once to Manuka in the next 8 rounds and 6 of the other games are at Etihad where he will get a TON of it. Is also a M/F DPP which makes him even more valuable.
Stephen Hill ($417,800, 96.0) – You know how there’s guys that you just love watching go about it? Stephen Hill is one of them for me. You can just tell he’s got a ton of talent and its starting to make itself more and more evident in a Freo midfield that’s firing. Next 3 games are against Richmond, WC, and Brisbane.
Other notables were GAJ, Hannebery, Brennan, Sidebottom, Simpson and of course Goddard, Hodge, Swan and Chappie.
Feel free to add to the list.
