Chips Ahoy! asked me to look into possible positional changes for 2018. Since my 2017 campaign is practically dead and buried, I’m happy to have a quick look. These are the first five names that sprung to mind when looking ahead to 2018:
Patrick Dangerfield (GEE) M to F/M – The stats speak for themself……..After 15 games this season, Danger already has 27 goals to his name. That’s more than most key position forwards! He’s kicked 3+ goals on six occasions this season. When he’s not kicking them from the middle, Danger can usually be found resting forward. Sure, everyone would choose him but everyone has him in their side now……because he’s the best in the comp!!!!!’
Sam Docherty (CAR) D to D/M – Averaging 28 touches a game and attending many centre bounces in 2017, a strong case could be made to make Doc a dual-position player. If Taylor Adams can attain the status then what’s stopping Doc?
Gary Ablett (GCS) M to F/M – Spends plenty of his time resting forward and would be the logical move for Champion Data to make. Even more time up forward on the cards at Geelong? 😉
Robbie Gray (PTA) M to F/M – Looks like he’s struggling with those constant groin complaints and is playing forward as a result. With minimal midfield time in 2017, it’s hard to see how he’s not a dual position player in 2018 (or even a pure FWD!). Gray already has 32 goals to his name in 2017 which puts him in contention for the Coleman Medal. Should be a no-brainer for the good folks at Champion Data.
Caleb Daniel (WBD) F to F/M – No longer just skirting around the 50m Arch, Daniel is trying his hand in the midfield every chance he gets. The little Hobbitt with his helmet to protect from the heartless Orcs, is in line to get an upgrade to dual position.
Who can you see having a change to their current Supercoach position? I’ll be back with another list of possible candidates in the coming weeks……..
