Bit of a change up this week. Firstly I’m going to highlight the performances of players that haven’t yet played 3 games because I figure you want to know about them BEFORE their price changes. Secondly, lets celebrate the good before we rubbish the mediocre.
So lets kick it off with the great forward efforts from R6:
C Dawes ($260,300, 82.50) – Has only played 2 games so far but from what I saw of him against my boys at the G yesterday he’s going to be a handful for a lot of sides. If he could kick as straight as Jack Anthony, Anthony would never get another game. Had a 76 against us and an 89 against Essendon the week before. Don’t say I didn’t tell you about him.
T Varcoe ($370,400, 108.00) – Has only played the one game so far but racked up a ton in it. Gave a hell of a lot of scoring assists before finally kicking his own goal late in the game. Admittedly he played Richmond so his score is likely to look a little inflated but if he can keep that kind of scoring up you’d have to consider him.
D Bradshaw ($486,900, $+49,600 ($+71,200), 95.00) – Was there anyone else out there that was hoping he’d go to town on Brisbane on Saturday night? Has kicked 6,6, and 4 goals over the last 3 weeks to give him an average of 126 over that period. Seems to be fitting in quite nicely into the Swannies forward line. Back after R3 you could’ve gotten on him for $390k.
At the other end of the spectrum were these blokes:
J Roughead ($350,700, $-31,800 ($-70,900), 69.67) – Kicked 11 goals in the first 3 games and tickled 100 in R2 against Geelong with a 97 but since then has gone AWOL – no goals against the Dons and only 1 in each of the 2 games prior to that. Must be traded out now.
C Rioli ($386,500, $-43,900 ($-31,200), 76.20) – Why have you forsaken us, Cyril? So many showed faith by trading him in in R3 after a spectacular 4 goal, 140 point effort against the Dogs to see him score 77, 35 and 47 since then. If his groin is a problem can someone please give it a massage? 54,849 coaches would very much appreciate it.
L Davis ($439,300, $-43,300 ($-152,400), 74.17) – The problem with this guy was illustrated to all and sundry yesterday at the G. He snaffled the ball from a pack about 35 out from goal on a slight angle. Without another thought he turned blind and put it on the boot…only for it to sail across the face and go out on the full. ‘His radar’s off” said Grimmo sitting next to me. It sure is. Hasn’t kicked a goal over the last 2 weeks.
Feel free to add to either list.
