Bob Murphy ($320,200 $-38,400 ($-33,600), 68.40) – Started the year of beautifully with a 130 against the Pies but since then has started to really stink it up. His last 3 games have yielded an average of 43. Yikes! Old injuries starting to flare up again? You be the judge.
Mark LeCras ($405,700 $-31,500 ($-42,700), 65.00) – Probably being a little harsh on The Ex Best Small Forward In The Competition (its now Eddie Betts!) His last score was a 13 and that has killed his average but in R3 he had a 98. Nevertheless, pull your finger out, Mark!
Warren Tredrea ($338,100 $-9,500 ($-82,300), 55.80) – The joy I get from seeing this guy fail is palpable. I couldn’t count on 2 hands the amount of dickhead things I have seen him do a footy field. Suffer in yer jocks, Wazza!
He hasn’t played 3 games yet but I gotta mention Robbie Gray here as well. His first 2 games have returned 70 and 48 meaning those who have him are about to lose a fair chunk of change. Ouch.
Heath Grundy ($479,800 $+25,500 ($+105,600), 107.20) – Just as you thought he may have been a flash in the pan when he scored a 68 in R4, he jumps back in R5 with a 132. At the beginning of the year Dream Team’s Mr Fantasy had this to say about him “not a high possession getter and I would look elsewhere”. Fail.
Alan Didak ($513,300 $+9,900 ($-45,300), 100.20) – The 54 he scored in R2 against Melbourne was an aberration – every other score has been in triple digits including a 125 last week against Essendon. I hate him but its hard to dislike those stats.
Ricky Petterd ($386,900 $+7,200 ($+19,500), 85.40) – His last price rise factored in the 41 he scored in R3 so if he can do reasonably well this week expect a big jump because in his last 2 games he’s scored 103 and 105. Gives away very few frees, kicks 2 goals a game, averages about 4 tackles a game. Nice, nice, nice.
Must also give some love this week to Adam Schneider (who is blossoming with no Roo around), Daniel Bradshaw (who is healthy and loving a change of scenery), and Eddie Betts (who has picked up the slack after the departure of you-know-who).
Anyone else out there want to throw the spotlight on a player?
