Motts’ Movers – Rucks R9

Written by Motts on 11:49 pm, May 20 2009

Rucks. The Big Fellas. My team already has Cox and McIntosh on the field and Meesen (out for season) and Jacobs (injured) on the bench. As I’ve said previously, I’m waiting on Naitanui to come in for the Eagles to make some cash on the Meesen trade but if you’re looking for options now and can’t afford either Massive or McIntosh here are some nice options:

Justin Koschitzke ($349,900, 82.71). If you’re prepared to wear the injury risk this bloke is playing in a winning team and has a fair average. He’s cracked tons in 3 of the 7 games he’s played this year but with some ordinary scores mixed in amongst them (17,

Motts’ Movers – Midfielders R9

Written by Motts on 5:56 am, May 20 2009

Right, you’ve had a couple of days to digest the backs for R9. Lets now have a look at what should be the highest scoring section of your team – the Mids. I’ll give you 3 options here. A Rolls Royce, a good mid-priced option, and a bloke I think is a steal at the price he’s currently going at.

Bryce Gibbs (price – $513,900, ave – 106.50) – He went at number 1 two years ago, has shouldered everything the Blues have had to throw at him including leadership group duties, reads the play beautifully and is strong overhead.

Motts Movers – Defenders – R9

Written by Motts on 8:27 am, May 18 2009

If you’re like me and can’t wait for the teams to be announced on Friday so you can start trading the next 4 days draaaaaaag along. Here are some options in your backline to think about this week:

Jack Grimes – if you haven’t heard of him yet you must be living under a rock. The guy had a back problem that meant he didn’t play one round last year but has made up for lost time in the last couple of weeks with scores of 92 in his first game against West Coast in R7 and then 109 against the Dogs last week.
