New format for the scores this week – its now Name (Value, amount he changed last week (total amount he’s changed), season average to date). Make sense? Good. Lets kick-off with the SC dunces.
A Mackie ($359,900, $-16,200 ($-61,500), 62.60) – Averaged a little under 80 a week last year after a breakout 2008 season. Hasn’t scored more than 83 so far this year and the 51 he submitted againts the Blues was terrible.
S Thompson ($346,900, $-23,800 ($-82,400), 58.40) – Second in North’s best and fairest after averaging just over 80 last year. Has scored 80 only once so far this year, the rest of his scores sitting between 40 and 65. Clearly not one of the game’s rebounding defenders. He’s more of a spoiling defender.
G Urquhart ($302,300, $-20,100 ($-45,300), 50.40) – Couldn’t go past another Roos player this week. Urquers’ averaged 65 last year but his form fell away at the end of the season. It hasn’t returned. After a 23 on the weekend including 0 tackles he may struggle to keep his spot.
Top of the class awards go to:
J Drummond ($524,800, $-5,500 ($-13,100), 104.00) – Is this guy the best kick in AFL? The bloke delivers it on a dime every time which puts his efficiency through the roof which makes him SC gold. Had a 97 in R1 but every other score has been up in triple figure territory. Definitely a premium.
N Malceski ($428,400, $+33,400 ($+154,900), 112.20) – Had a 45 last week which had everyone who doesn’t have him rubbing their hands together with glee thinking “vindicated!”. But our pain continues because he came back with 135 against the Weagles on the weekend – his third 130+ score this year. Its got to the point where I’ve now bought a little Malsexi doll and have been busy jamming pins into its knees.
B Waters ($332,600, $+47,400 ($+181,500), 91.20) – If you’ve got both The Eski and Big Bustliing Beau then I reckon you’ve picked up the 2 bargains of the year. Like Malceski, BBB has shrugged off injury concerns and continues to get better – scoring his first ton for the year in the last round. If you haven’t put a toe in the Waters yet, 4 of his next 6 are at Subi so you’d think he still has plenty of upside.
Just quietly, there are 2 blokes who are seriously undervalued right now that you may want to consider: Phil Davis and Ryan Hargrave. I’m sure Big Sexy will go into more detail about PD in his Rookie Review. Hargrave averaged almost 100 last year but has started the season terribly dropping almost $120k so that he’s now valued at under $400k. Definitely worth consideration.
