M Jamar ($396,900 , $+4,900 ($+9,000), 87.33) – Pop quiz! Who has the second best average amongst all rucks in the comp? I’ve give you a hint: he has a manly beard, plays for Melbourne, and scored 100 on the weekend. Gotta be worth considering if you are one of the poor unfortunate souls with Seaby or Ottens in your team.
D Hille ($338,700, $+15,600 ($+27,400, 68.67) – I might be a little early with this call but I’ve been accused of being premature in the past so what the heck. Admittedly it was against the 5’10’’ Hawks but he scored a 97 on the weekend. I reckon he’s just about to go on a run. Ottens is pretty much a straight swap for him too. And if you’re prepared to take the injury risk to put Ottens in your team, why wouldn’t you go with Hille?
Riding shotgun with these boys this week were Maric (who scored a 96), Cox (96), and Paddy Ryder (105).
D Jolly ($367,800, $-3,000 ($-125,400), 55.67) – Averaged almost 93 a game last year. What the hell has happened? The grounds aren’t different, the ball is still the same shape down here in Melbourne, they still bounce it before a game and the big guys jump up and try to tap it. What in God’s good name has caused this guy’s form to drop off THAT much? I’ll take suggestions below.
J Fraser ($344,300, $-22,500 ($-143,400), 55.33) – Couldn’t resist the opportunity to bag both Carringbush ruckmen this week but with losses well over $100k each and both with scores under 50 last round they haven’t made it hard for me. Stick a fork in Josh coz he’s done. He may bust out the occasional ton from now until the end of the season like he did last week but they’re going to be too few and far between to justify the hair you’ll lose in the meantime as he racks up 36, after 33, after 27*.
