Jed Adcock ($461,400, 103, 109.17, 106) – The Lions haven’t sung their club song in 2011 but Jed continues to get it done for them down back. Scored his 5th ton in a row in R7 to take his value up a whopping $128k since the start of the year. His averages against his next three opponents (Essendon, North and Adelaide) are all sub-100 (in the case of the Dons and Roos its sub-80) so it will be interesting to see how he goes. 3 of his next 4 though are at home.
Daniel Pratt ($366,500, 123, 97.67, 28) – MATT drew my attention to Pratt in a comment he made in the Grimes post. This is his 8th year in the league and I’ve never once considered him for a spot in my team. His best year SC-wise was 2008 when he averaged 99 in 20 games. The last 2 years haven’t been so crash hot for him though – in 2009 he averaged 80 in 14 games, and last year it was 70 in 13. In only 3 games this year he’s scored 76, 94 and 123. Consider him if you’ve got Grimes but just remember he’ll be out of the first week of SC finals.
Brett Deledio ($483,900, 117, 108.57, 88) – Did you know Lids is owned by 33% of all coaches? That’s 124,581 coaches who would be ecstatic about the way he’s kicked off 2011. Averages over a ton and is still under $500k – that is value! Has some tricky games coming up though – 4 of his next 5 are Away and over that period he faces the Dogs, Essendon and Sydney. He also has his first bye in R11.
Honourable mentions: Sam Fisher, Heath Shaw, and Dustin Fletcher.
Michael Johnson ($288,800, 15, 50.00, 94) – no, he wasn’t the sub nor was he subbed off. He just scored 15.
Greg Broughton ($413,900, 67, 85.20, 116) – three scores in the 90s but yet to crack the ton. I know he’s got a sore back, but 67 is unacceptable for a guy his price.
Matt Maguire ($346,900, 58, 46.00, 140) – has only played 2 games but the signs aren’t good.
Alex Rance ($318,300, 94, 84.00, 36) – Has only played 4 games (Rounds 1, 5, 6 and 7) but is pretty dependable – he hasn’t scored less than 79. You can’t ask for much more than that from a $300k player. Had his highest score for the year last weekend. Is in his third year – could he be about to breakout?
Brady Rawlings ($380,900, 118, 84.83, 44) – Has dropped $91k this year and over the last 2 weeks posted scores of 93 and 118. Low BE this week. Consider.
Nick Lower ($259,400, 83, 83.20, -16) – Still great value.
Special mentions: Alex Johnson, Dylan Grimes, and Mark Nicoski.
