Brent Harvey ($493,700, 129, 107.20, 90) – Remember last year when he scored 110 in the first game of the year and then 11 in his second at which point about 90% of the coaches who had him jumped off thinking his tired, old legs wouldn’t see him out another year? Over the next three weeks he slammed on 176, 109 and 110. Bit of déjà vu about 2011: he scored 64 in his first game of the year which I’m sure lead to more than few people trading him out again and since then has put up 102, 116, 125 and 129. Mercurial gun. Never doubt him.
Jared Brennan ($402,600, 100, 86.6, 66) – We all know the queries that have been raised in the past regarding Brennan’s consistency but we also know how a change of club can prove the world of difference to some players. Jared’s first game for the year was a stinker – 18 – since then he has amassed scores of 114, 86, 115 and 100. He’s only gone up $23k for the year on account of that poor first game. And you know he’ll get a run every week playing for the Suns. Anyone looking for a straight swap for Higgins?
Robin Nahas ($328,900, 149, 80.5, -19) – Its either hot or cold with Na-has (I can’t help but think of Nelson from the Simpsons whenever I hear his name). In the 6 games he’s played so far this year he’s scored at one end of the spectrum a 48, a 58 and a 25 (he got subbed at ¾ time). At the other end is a 104, a 99, and a spectacular 149. I reckon you’d be taking your chances if you recruited him but for $328k he’s kinda tempting.
Honourable mentions: Kyle Hardingham, Patrick Dangerfield and Leroy Jetta
Jarrad Waite ($382,000, 49, 74.17, 120)
Brad Green ($370,200, 48, 72.8, 129)
Sam Gilbert ($373,500, 44, 73.8, 129)
Jack Darling ($262,300, 100, 84.0, -16) – I brought him in last week at $214k and couldn’t be happier with the ton he posted. I still reckon he’s pretty cheap for the dominant type of player I expect him to become. Last chance.
Jack Riewoldt ($386,000, 109, 82.83, 24) – Opened the season with a 122, then had 3 bad weeks and over the last two has scored 136 and 109. If you missed him last week, you’ll be paying an extra $23k this week. With a 24 BE he’s not going to last long under $400k.
Kurt Tippett ($334,800, 102, 76.50, 46) – I know some of you will be shuddering right now just at the mention of Kurt’s name after last season’s debacle but the pack marks he was taking and the ba-na-na kicks he was making last Saturday night have made me think twice about him. Since starting his season in R3 he’s just got better and better with scores of 49, 70, 85 and then 102 against the Saints last week. Watch him this week and see if he makes me look like a clown (again).
Special mentions: Setanta O’Hailpin (1 game wonder?), Chris Knights and Andrew Krakouer.
