Player Name (Club, Price, Average, 3-Round-Average, 5-Round-Average)
Heath Shaw (GWS, $507,800, 88.2, 110.7, 106.0)
Have the reports of the veteran Giant’s irrelevance been greatly exaggerated? After a slow start to the year, Shaw has since gone bang, with scores of 104, 94, 144, 103, and 85 over the last 5 weeks.
Brodie Smith (ADE, $438,300, 88.9, 77.3, 85.8)
Coaches who started with him will have been thrilled with the way he started the year. The last few weeks… not so much. He’s unlikely to be the weakest link in too many teams at this stage, but I’d be looking to move him on in round 14, if you haven’t already done so.
Josh Kelly (GWS, $645,500, 122.1, 144.3, 129.2)
Wow. He’s been great since returning to the side in round 3, although the last 3 weeks have been particularly impressive, with scores of 154, 131, and 148. At nearly $650K, he’s very expensive, but if you’ve got the cash, he’s surely somebody you would want to have in your team.
Stephen Coniglio (GWS, $477,500, 95.2, 79.3, 89.0) – injury
Not so wow. Injuries have been a factor, but apart from a 154 in round 1, Cogs hasn’t been having a great year from a SuperCoach standpoint, and his last three games have been particularly poor, with scores of 87, 75, and 76. If he can find some form, he could be a great value option for the back half of the year, although keep in mind that he’s always been somewhat injury-prone – is that really a risk you want to be taking into the business end of the season?
Brodie Grundy (COLL, $683,100, 130.2, 150.0, 138.4)
Not content with being the no. 1 ruck in the competition, Grundy has decided to go and give himself a whopping three-round-average of 150. What more can I say? If you don’t have him yet, that’s something you need to address over the byes.
Rhys Stanley (GEEL, $446,400, 86.3, 65.7, 89.0)
As predicted in this very column 4 weeks ago, the big Cat’s good run of form has come to an end, with scores of 73, 60, and 64 over his last 3 games.
Rory Lobb (FWD) (FRE, $478,000, 90.9, 109.3, 97.2)
With two 120+ scores in the last three weeks, Lobb has been having a good run lately. With Sean Darcy still out of favour, the Dockers’ no. 1 ruck could be a good option if you’re looking for swinging ruck cover in the latter half of the season.
Travis Boak (PTA, $515,400, 110.0, 87.3, 98.6)
After starting the year in some of the best form of his career, Boak has since had a bit of a quiet patch, with two sub-80 scores in the last three weeks. He should dip further in price over the next week or two, so he could be one to target following his round 12 bye.
