Movers & Shakers – Rd18

Written by Schwarzwalder on July 19 2018

In the tradition of Motts’ Movers, Movers & Shakers looks at the current trend of form of certain players. Those of which are having a purple patch over the last 3-5 Rounds or inadvertently, those whose form has completely deserted them for whatever reason. The following players have been classified as movin’ on up or shakin’ on down………(Club, Price, Avg, Last 3 Rounds Avg, Last 5 Rds Avg)

 

DEFENDERS

Jake Lloyd (SYD, $595k, 109, 124, 120) – Has gone from a fringe Top10 Supercoach DEF to absolute must-have in the space of a couple months. Since Callum Mills was ruled out for the season, Lloyd has gone bananas on the Supercoach field scoring: 130, 173, 118, 90, 106, 122, 136, 141 & 96.

Paul Seedsman (ADE, $376k, 83, 74, 71) – Started the season well enough with three tons in the first five weeks but that’s where it ended unfortunately. Only reached 90pts twice in the last ten weeks leaving owners looking elsewhere for options.  I’m guessing the Crows long injury list has a lot to do with it……….

MIDFIELD

Jack Redden (WCE, $511k, 93, 125, 113) – Was a big whisper around the site for Redden over the pre-season yet he barely got his hands on the ball over the first five Rounds. Since then he’s slipped right under the radar with eight scores over 100+ in his last eleven games, including back-to-back 154s against GWS and Collingwood recently. Still affordable if you need a POD at M8/M9……..

Steele Sidebottom (COL, $484k, 99, 78, 97) – Copped the Hutchings tag against the Eagles which heavily affected his output on the weekend. That comes two weeks after the Suns decided to use Touk Miller to run with the SteelButt. Not terribly out of form however, and might prove a cheap option for the last few weeks.

 

RUCK

Todd Goldstein (NTH, $570k, 101, 122, 122) – Eight tons in a row have seen Goldy charge back into Supercoach relevance territory and, up until a week or two ago, provide a viable R2 option that didn’t cost upwards of $550k. If you think he can keep it up till seasons end, he might just be worth the risk…………

Jarrod Witts (GCS, 410k, 89, 89, 75) – If not for a 129 against North, Witts’ recent numbers would look quite ordinary. That was his only score over 75 in the last six weeks. Just like the Suns, recent form is poor………

FORWARDS

Justin Westhoff (PTA, $508k, 101, 103, 104) – Seems to have a habit of starting well and fading away each year in Supercoach. Has held his form till now and is the only FWD currently priced over $500k.

 

Sam Menegola (GEE, $444k, 94, 80, 82) – Despite 20+ disposals over the last few weeks, Champion Data has deemed his effectivity to be weak resulting in multiple scores in the 70s. Far too little for a player that started the year as most expensive FWD.

  1. Luckily I avoided him in SuperCoach, but I do have Steele bloody Sidebum in RDT. If I wasn’t so low on trades, I’d be moving and shaking him until he turned into Macrae.
