Jello asked the question in the Polling Station of upgrading to Grundy at this late stage of the season. While ‘only’ in 18% of teams, Grundy is the 2nd highest pts scorer for 2018 with only Max Gawn ahead of him.
With seven weeks to go, is it worth upgrading to Grundy at this late stage? Stefan Martin is the next best Ruckmen in Supercoach but has averaged 20 pts less than Grundy all year (similar gap with last 3 & 5 Rd Avg).
Getting under everyone’s radar (again), the 4th highest scoring Ruckman is Ben McEvoy with an avg of 100 pts. He suffered a depressed cheekbone on the weekend after a clash of heads with Josh Dunkley and could now safely be upgraded (set to miss a few weeks).
5th highest scoring Ruckman is Todd Goldstein who has ‘only’ averaged 99pts for the year. A closer look at his recent form however, will show that he has just about matched it with Grundy. Goldy’s last 5 Rd Avg is 122pts, only 5 pts behind Grundy. That’s a strong case to stick with Goldy for the remainder of the year.
How do you rate the situation, Coaches? Is Grundy a must-have? Or should you risk another big fella and hope he scores similarly over the next month or two?
