Dean Cox ($513,200, 149, 126.25, 95) – Is it getting boring yet? Massive has been named in virtually every MM Thrillers section this year. How can I overlook him though with scores like 149? He’s rolling like a young buck again and has increased $85k in price since the beginning of the year. Next 5 opponents before his second bye: Collingwood, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Port Adelaide, and Carlton.
Aaron Sandilands ($554,000, 113, 121.25, 152) – Just missed his BE and consequently will now have to work his butt off when he comes back in a month to maintain his massive price. Whatever you do, do not trade him out. You will regret it.
Shane Mumford ($476,300, 71, 108.38, 161) – Last 3 rounds: 92, 90, 71. Not disastrous but we had come to expect more from the big fella.
Kurt Tippett ($331,000, 59, 70.86, 125) – I warned you last week, K-Tip – pick up your game or your gonna get shamed. 59 doesn’t cut it. Whilst 3.1 is a decent return off the boot, the 3 frees against and only 1 tackle isn’t good enough. Especially when forward pressure is the buzzword of the moment. And while we’re on Adelaide’s forward pressure, have a guess how many tackles Taylor Walker has laid in 6 games?
Drew Petrie ($356,700, 123, 87.57, 68) – If he could string together 3 tons in a row I’d have no hesitation naming him up top. But while he’s interspersing magnificent games with scores like those he had against Port and Melbourne, he remains just a bloke who will provide good value for your team. Last 5 rounds: 149, 68, 102, 50, 123. Should be getting a run in plenty of teams this week given Sandi’s toe de turf.
Nic Naitanui ($387,200, 105, 87.57, 52) – That’s three tons in a row for Nic Nat. I have no doubt that there will be those who have a Sandi/Warnock ruck combo who will be strongly considering bringing him in this week. Interestingly, he’s scored exactly the same amount of SC points for the year as Petrie and has exactly the same average.
Special mentions: David Hille, Sam Jacobs, and Tyrone Vickery.
How many tackles has Taylor Walker laid in 6 games? 2. Guess who’s already signed his GWS contract?
