Player Name (Club, Price, Average, 3-Round-Average, 5-Round-Average)
Zac Williams (GWS, $507,700, 96.5, 114,3, 98.8)
What can I say? A popular pre-season pick at just over $400K, he’s looking every bit the keeper we were hoping he would be.
Alex Witherden (BRL, $412,100, 82.8, 70.7, 79.2)
After much hype in the pre-season, Witherden started the year pretty strongly, averaging 90 over the first five weeks. His owners will not have enjoyed what’s followed that, however, with the young Lion posting scores of 62, 71, and 79 over the last three weeks.
Elliot Yeo (WCE, $554,100, 100.4, 121.0, 112.6)
A poor first few weeks had many of his owners reaching for the trade button, but those who held him have been well rewarded over the last five weeks (and particularly the last three). Still relatively cheap at $554K, now might be a good time to jump on.
Tom Liberatore (WBD, $429,100, 94.8, 67.0, 81.0)
After a blistering start to the season, many of us were using the k-word, and even considering the c-word. And we all know what happened next. He got Magnetized. Move him on before he loses any more cash.
Tom Bellchambers (ESS, $467,600, 84.8, 103.7, 91.0)
Not SuperCoach-relevant outside of Draft, but the Essendon big man has had a great last month, with scores of 105, 109, 95, and 107. He started the season with 56, 118, 49, and 39, so don’t expect him to keep this up for the whole year (although with matchups of Rory Lobb and a Nankervis-less Richmond in the next two weeks, he might have a couple more left in him).
Nankervis (RIC, $374,900, 75.1, 57.0, 61.6)
Two Tasmanians in the same section! What are the odds? Unfortunately for Nankervis and his 6,999 owners, he’s here for all the wrong reasons. After a lacklustre start the the year, he’s now injured, and will miss 6 to 8 weeks. With his price now at $375K, he’s not going to be cheap to replace.
Josh Dunkley (MID) (WBD, $514,700, 98.1, 121.0, 106.2)
After a slow start to the year due to being played out of position, Dunkley has been great over the last 4 weeks, with scores of 95, 93, 134, and 136. It looks like Mr Magnets has finally put things right. The only question is, will they stay that way?
Isaac Heeney (MID) (SYD, $467,700, 90.4, 68.7, 86.8)
Now Longmire decides to tell us that Heeney’s been hobbling around all year and has barely trained. Widely considered a lock at F2 before the start of the season, he’s really only had three good games for the year, and they’ve since been followed by scores of 74, 68, and 64. With his injury issues now public knowledge, many have been asking the question of whether or not it’s worth trading him out. No doubt his scoring will bounce back once he gets his body right, but who knows how long that will be?
Finally, does climbing a goalpost make Dane Rampe a shaker? Read the relevant section of rule 17.11 and decide for yourself:
17.11.1 Free Kicks – Shaking Goal Post or Behind Post Unless Law 17.11.3 applies, a Free Kick shall be awarded against a Player or Official who intentionally shakes a goal or behind post (either before or after a Player has disposed of the football).
