Motts Movers R5 – The Backs

Written by Motts on April 27 2010

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.

  1. My boy Hurny needs to get a bouquet – back from suspension with 16 posse’s and 4 FA and still racks up a 91. The only guys that love him more than me are the Virtual Sport/Champion Data scorers!

    1. Yeah, I noticed that phenomenon last year – a huge variation between DT and SC scores. I decided to take a piece of that action this year and love being pleasantly surprised when the SC scores come up at the end of each quarter having had my heart in my mouth watching his live DT score crawl.

    1. 4S – you need to take some serious pills when it comes to the Ds. There is 10+ other players to consider in SC B4 Morton although he has potential in the big league.

  2. Not sure about Hargrave Mottsy, with he’s neck injury he copped against the Hawks he didn’t look right in the lions game and was lucky not to get suspended for a cheap punch. Last week he was a late withdrawal because of he’s neck. It might pay to steer clear of him until he finds some form i.e Dangerman. Also look like to me the Doggies have changed their game plan instead of switching the play from the backline, they just going straight down the guts.

  3. Never really notice Waters much when I watch a West Coast game, but I always notice his consistently impressive SC scores. Lowest score is 78 and ticks all the boxes with possies, marks and tackles. Love him

  4. I’m regretting not getting on Waters, I thought he was going to have a pretty bad year but unfortunately for me that wasn’t the case. Only person I could see making way for Waters in my team is Kennelly, but as you say trades are gold and I don’t really want to be doing a sideways trade.

    1. Fair enough. Sometimes you just have to accept that you missed the boat and then pray for the rest of the season they do an injury. That’s the space I’m in with Malsexi.

  5. just to chuck in my 2 cents, thought Russell and maguire’s outputs were worth a mention with them scoring 122 and 93, respectively.
    P.S. Anyone know when Gram will be back??

    1. Apparently a club official told SEN that the club will make a decision on Gram and Ray as late in the week as possible. Fingers crossed

  6. yeah had waters and malceski from the start and along with barlow have been the best surprises of the season. thinking of upgrading a mid-price back to rhys shaw. i know he’s the poorman’s heath but i dont have quite enough cash to pick up a heath now. my backline is goddard, hodge, waters, malceski, silvagni, mitch brown with gram and schoey on the bench. if gram is back this week im cool but if he stays out might bring in rhys shaw for brown. opinions??

    1. Rhys IMO will struggle to get premium scores as they have to be shared between him, the eski, Ken, MM and Reg. Once the Swans start losing those points proportions will drop and so will Shaw’s.
      With your BL there is no need to trade as Rhys is a mid price himself and you would be going sideways – my advice is to wait for an LTI and then upgrade. You certainly have the cattle to do so. Would be better off looking at Drummond/Hurn.

    You might want to consider a disclosure on P Davis as it appears many supporters of your site are making trades prior to this week’s teams being announced based on your unqualified advice in this blog. Albeit I am hoping to trade in Davis, I am wary of Bock and Stevens coming back to join Rutten which structurally does not leave a possy for Philly. I know he has done relatively well (in SC) in the past two weeks but remember he was way back in Craigie’s preseason alternatives for Otten.

    1. Deano,
      Anyone who makes trades before the teams are announced is a penis and do so at their own peril. Motts and BS’s advice and many other peoples on this site, is nothing but gold and with davis are just stating the facts/stats. And this blog is all about people commenting and giving their thoughts and opinions. Davis has played two solid games. He is cheap and on current form will go up 100k in the next few weeks if he keeps playing.

  8. Might pay to watch on with Hargrave this week as well, his break even will be about 170 (I think and stand to be corrected) so more than likely will be in for a another price drop and we can assess form to see if his output is going to be what we would expect from a proven SC performer in the past.

    Question, will the Eski continue to average above 100?

    1. He did in 07 when he also played 22 games. If you look at the structure of the swans backline and take into account eski’s beautiful long raking pin’point kicks to the likes of goodes and bradshaw, the only thing stopping him is injury. Gun imo
