In the tradition of Motts’ Movers, ‘Movers & Shakers’ looks at those players making a big impact (or no impact) over a short amount of time. We now have plenty of data to separate the weak from the strong. This weeks Movers & Shakers are (Player, Club, Current Price, Average, 3-Round Average):
Taylor Adams (COL, $561k, 110.7, 110.7) – ‘Only’ has a high score of 122 but has just gone under a hundred on one occasion till now in 2017. That sort of consistency makes him one of three defenders (with Doc & Laird) you simply must have in your line-up. Has had his injury worries in the past but is a Top3 DEF if he stays on the park.
Heath Shaw (GWS, $446k, 86, 75) – Heater hasn’t necessarily been playing poorly, he’s just not getting the ball delivered to him as previous years. The young Giants players used to hand it to him at every opportunity. These days they’re taking more initiative and choosing to ignore Shaw more regularly. Just the two tons from ten games has Shaw slipping further from a spot in the Top6 DEFs.
Patrick Dangerfield (GEE, $618k, 122.7, 142) – The perma-Captain looks to be over any rib injuries that were effecting him around Rds 6-8. 151 & 163 over the last two weeks. If you’re backing against him with Captaincy then you’re playing with fire……..
Marcus Bontempelli (WBD, $553k, 113, 89) – From the first seven Rounds, The Bont went over 115+ on six occasions. The Bromance with Champion Data has eased off lately with The Bont returning an 89avg over the last three weeks. Is it a sign of things to come? Or is he just giving all those ‘Bont-less’ owners a chance to buy him up cheap?
Matthew Kreuzer (CAR, $525k, 103, 123.6) – Is it just me or does Kreuzer do this every year? Is in some red-hot form over the last month averaging 124 but he never sustains these purple patches. Interested to see how long it holds this time around……….
Toby Nankervis (RIC, $469k, 99.8, 89) – The Tank has been very valuable for most patrons of Supercoach this season. His form over the last month is a little down on what we’ve come to expect however. A 68 followed by suspension then 92, 100 & 75. Hoping he starts getting those Hitouts To Advantage happening really soon………
Jack Billings (STK, $499k, 86, 102.6) – After an indifferent first five weeks, Billings has found his feet with 93, 114, 136, 104 & 68. He’s found himself at a very awkward price however…….good value if you think he can continue or far too expensive if it’s just a flash-in-the-pan.
Luke Dahlhaus (WBD, $479k, 99.5, 77.6) – After five tons in the first seven Rounds, Dahlhaus has slowed right up in recent weeks with just 65, 99 & 78. Really hoping that he doesn’t trail off with these scores but the addition of Mitch Wallis seems to have an impact on his output.
Have you jumped on any of the players above? Too many Shakers in your team? Not enough Movers? Do you agree/disagree with the list? Tell us your thoughts………
