Motts Movers R7 – The Forwards

Written by Motts on May 13 2011

Abbreviated Movers this afternoon given its only a couple of hours til lockout. (And because Mottsy might have had a couple of Tassie pinots over lunch…)

Thrillers

Mathew Pavlich ($521,000, 122, 115.67, 125) – 5 tons in a row and loves a Derby.

Robin Nahas ($387,300, 125, 86.86, -15) – Been going bananas lately.

Brent Harvey ($500,100, 100, 106.0, 105) – Just continues to get it done.

Honourable mentions: Jared Brennan (LOVED being named a Mover last week and celebrated with a 155 pt outing), Lance Franklin and Jarryd Roughead.

Chillers

Nick Riewoldt ($405,400, 63, 81.50, 161) – We love the blond bomber but he simply cannot kick straight to save himself. If you didn’t have him at the start of the year you’d be patting yourself on the back right now that you hadn’t wasted the $124,500 that he’s dropped.

Tom Hawkins ($289,600, 55, 52.80, 72) – Continues to stink it up. How much more of a threat would Geelong be if this guy was as potent as T Cloke at full forward?

Travis Varcoe ($346,600, 72, 72.67, 74) – This may be considered a little unfair given he’s scoring at a rate that maintains his price but I just expected a lot more out of him this year.

Drillers

Luke Tapscott ($266,600, 104, 82.50, 21) – Still very cheap.

Robert Murphy ($375,900, 98, 94.17, 41) – Only one poor performance for the year so far

Jack Watts ($241,000, 92, 58.33, -11) – 80 and a 92 in his last 2 games – coming good?

Special mentions: Isaac Smith (102 on debut!), Liam Patrick (100 in his second game!), and  Josh Hill (4 tons in 6 games).

  1. Who does Liam Patrick play for? Big issues, no cover for curnow must trade to get players on field and need to trade jack Grimes out as well but was hoping to wait a week. Any suggestions?

  2. Roo is to much of a gun to stay in this slump much longer.

    He just needs to play 1 blinder and he’s back.

  3. Gday Boys,

    Got my team pretty close to where I need it to be, saving enough trades for the finals still.

    Looking at one trade only this week, mainly for flexibility as a DPP Forward / Midfielder.
    I have enough coin in my bank to grab whoever I like really.
    Whats everyones thoughts on the following players to bring in…
    Ryan O’Keefe (Sydney have a nice run in the next 4 – 5 Weeks)
    Alan Didak (Quite cheap at the moment, no byes late in the year)
    Jared Brennan (Go to player at the GCS)
    Colin Sylvia (Inconsistency is my only worry)
    Nathan Fyfe (speaks for himself)
    Not putting Chappy or Brent Harvey as options due to byes in the final 4 weeks.

  6. Tell you guys what, big bad Johnothan Brown will be cherry ripe for an upgrade when he comes back. Nobody in the Brisbane forward line would take points from him.

Motts Movers R7 – The Forwards

Written by Motts on May 12 2010

Oranges

D Giansiracusa ($517,800, $+56,400 ($+67,700), 101.14) – If I ever announce on the site I have traded a guy out, bring him in because you can be sure that he is going to go berserk after that. His last 3 rounds he’s averaged 136. And his price is sure to rise again this week with a BE of 38. God I’m angry!

J Podsiadly ($336,100, $+82,800 ($+252,700), 108.20) – If you’re not aware of this guy yet then you’re either from overseas or you don’t login to SC very often. Its hard to leave him out when he scores 156. He has nowhere near capped out yet either – a MINUS 73 BE means he should go up another $100k this week.

N Fyfe ($186,100, $+91,900 ($+91,900), 89.33) – Big Sexy gave him a shout out and I’m re-emphasising it. He’s only played three games but he’s caning it with scores of 104, 74 and 90. Major downgrade opportunity. BE of -52 this week.

Lemons

B Hall ($377,500, $-28,700 ($+11,500), 69.43) – Just heard on the news that he’s admitted today that he’s struggling with injury. No shit, Barry! It was always going to be a risk for a guy who was injury prone to start with who’d been out of the game for so long. I’ll admit though, it was hard not to be seduced by his pre-season scores.

S Milne ($299,200, $-45,700 ($-92,300), 56.57)– Fresh from winning our Most Hated poll with 56% of the vote Milney’s form has been rubbish of late so I’m sure there’ll be a lot of people out there rejoicing. Since a 138 against Freo in R4 he’s scored -1 (WTF?!?), 54 and 50. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say “sucked in, Milney!”

J Koschitzke ($317,800 $-39,300 ($-84,500), 45.00) – Carlton chased hard for this bloke a couple of years ago. After sitting in the stands on Monday night and watching another inept performance from him can I tell you how happy I am that they didn’t get him? His last 3 rounds have yielded 44, 40 and 41. Over that time he’s kicked 1.3. Eeeeeeeeee awwwwwwwwww.

  1. Goodesy, scoring wise that is. Thought he was one of the Swannies better players on the weekend.

      1. i’m also not 100% sure his place in the side is safe. corey and rooke are to come back and stokes is a chance to start this week.

        his form is good enough to stay though, but he’ll need to keep kicking goals.

        1. You’re joking right, Varcoe is a jet he’s going to be in the pussies top 22 week in, week out for the remainder of the season. Rooke will have exploratory surgery on his knee, so he’ll be out for a while and Corey knee still hasn’t healed since the start of the season.

          1. you’re right about rooke and corey, but varcoe has been in and out of the side for his whole career. he’s in great form currently and deserves to stay, but it’s no guarantee.

            byrnes would make sense to go, but he has had a couple of blinder games, admittedly early in the season.

            it’s a good problem for the cats to have, hey?

          2. Not true, Travis has played in 58 out of a possible 82 games since he’s debut in 2007, the games he missed were mainly due to injury.

        2. I’m thinking that Shannon Byrnes is going to be at greatest risk of losing his spot in the team when Stokes returns.

  2. need some help for my defence with drummond down and 84 grand in the bank should i get scotland or gilbee greatly appreciated

    1. Gilbee for sure, he isn’t getting tagged this year unlike last year where the best tagger was on him. Also he has gone down back where he becomes the Doggies QB and all the plays run though him as the link man.

  3. i have a problem with b hall and c rioli
    both scoring very low and heard rioli might be still having trouble with a hamstring injury.
    dont have much cash like 5000 actually, need another forward
    should i go for jpod, or go for fyfe and make some cash?
    tho fyfe im not so confident he will play every game, supercoach headaches. can anyone help my head at ez please thanks

  4. Gray’s my man for a direct Brennan trade. Had him PS before the hammy rumours and 95 pts with only 11 possies (2 Goals) last week in a close result away from AAMI has sold me. SC scoring gold (ala Hurny.)
    Looking forward to Chocko bringing him into the midfield around finals time for premium scoring!

    1. I looked at him, believe me. Consistency has been an issue for him. He will certainly get a mention if he can string a few together.

    1. Fyfe in Ziebell out and would have got rid of Hall but need to keep the trades. As a first time player and participant here, can someone tell me how they work out a BE.

  5. Forward dilemmas in that there doesn’t seem a lot of value up fwd IMO..

    Not sure about Varco – hasn’t had a history of high SC points, but if he’s playing more midfield then perhaps he’ll continue 100 av..
    Fyfe could be a 7th fwd but would you play him with pods on the ground?
    Goodes – has his SC scoring potential waned?
    Gilbee’s a gun (but I have him midfield)
    Kennedy – could that be the breakout game eagles fans have been waiting for?
    Gray’s an interesting consideration – had my eye on him last year and considered him at the start of the season but got off him due to injury.. good value for a player at mid $400s, but is not yet a premium.. certainly one to watch

    My dilemma’s Hall – been bothering me for a while and think he’ll go eventually, so maybe this week is it.. going to lose lots of $$ & atm I’m still up $11K on him surprisingly.. worried he’s due for another huge game tho..
    Can do a direct swap for $510k, thinking: Gia (has topped out but is a class player), Didak (I have a pies aversion – but they are playing good footy), Buddy (is he really back??).
    And what about Betts?

    Have: Chappie, Pav, BJ, ROK, Pods, Le Cras, Hall, (Rockliff, P Davis)
    Grundy is down back and Gilbee mid.

    10 trades (but going for points). An upgrade in the mid and down back and the team will be settled with a handful of trades for LTI,, nudging 2200 av & want 2300 😉

    Or .. do nothing and wait it out a week …

    1. There are some rumours flying about Chapman missing, so if true you’ll be getting P.Davis points, remembering that jPod is out, and you’ll need Rocky to cover him, so maybe a Hall trade might help offset that point loss and build you up going forward. If I was trading, it would be either for Didak or Gia, and if it was me, I’d be trading Hall. Irrespective of what Hall gets this week there seems to be a fair distance between his best and worst, and I don’t like that discrepancy. Take a good look at Shaun Higgins too, I think he is 466k and will give you 100pts a week. He is an absolute gun in my opinion.

      1. Thanks Happy.
        Went Hall > Betts in the end.
        Higgins is had by one of the front runners in my league so will get different players if I can. Also, have a couple of Doggies already in the team so don’t want to put all my eggs in that basket.
        Hope Betts plays well!

  6. DJM – go to http://www.footywire.com.au – click on supercoach (left hand menu) – then on the right hand side under “More Supercoach Stats” there’s a link for Breakevens.

    This week I fu$#(*k up! Waited for the teams to be announced yesterday, then traded Hall for Pods (either didn’t see him, or he was still listed). Was thinking of trading Medhurst but decided against – then he’s injured too! baaah.
