Motts Movers R4 – The Mids

Written by Motts on April 19 2010

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.

  1. Even though he’s score wasn’t as flash as his first 2 games, Barlow gets a honorable mention in my book. He had Lingy wearing in round 3, he managed 17 touches but only scored 53 points then he had to contend with Jonesy who embarrassed Boomer in round 2. Barlow scored a creditable 83 and a avg of 107 ppg. He should have a field day against the Tigers at home this week, not bad for a first year player.

  2. agree with most of those motts, especially higgins. love having him in my side. would include nicky dal in the list of heroes. not that i have him in my side but luke ball seems to get a bit of criticism. hope sam mitchell can turn it around. i cant afford to burn another trade.

  3. Big probs with my punts in the midfield being Luke (can’t get anywhere near it and when I do, murder the) Ball and Mitch (running around like a chook with its head cut off – why can’t you see…Mrs) Robinson and too early to convert the rookies as they are still two weeks away from BE.
    To top it off, Woosha declares the old woman who lived in a shoe’s boy gonski without reaching his tradeable price. Time to concentrate on winning leagues rather than cars methinks.

    At least I’m not using a female alias like some poor soul (well done on the call PA) – vale Leesa.

  5. When supercoach bought these new rule dual positioning one question still confuses me..

    Take hodge for example. If i put him on the bench in my backline and give him the “E”, and my entire backline play.Yet one of my midfielders doesn’t.

    Will he sub in as a mid fielder, even though he is a backline “E” ?

  6. Poop my bad motts. And yeah Judd smashed it on weekend, our team without him just doesn’t cut it against the other elite teams. Also like Lucas and Whites performances. Walker did alright too

  7. With Juddy going so well on the weekend it should dispell some supercoaches reluctance to pick multiple players from one team. eg. Judd,gibbs & murph.I have GAJ,Selwood & bartel.Gun players will all find enough ball.has anyone (besides the dills who just picked the entire team they support) got more than 3 players from the 1 team in Backs, Forwards or mids.

  8. OK maybe I am a little biased – but you gotta admit that you wouldn’t be unhappy with 4 of those 6 blokes running around your engine room.
