Having a Point Of Difference is one thing………it’s the Rare Gems that are really special. Of course, we can’t have them all, but sometimes it feels like you’re the only owner…….you have a jet in your team that is producing great SC scores JUST FOR YOU. Which Rare Gems have remained hidden from sight till now?
Corey Enright (GEE) $518 400 DEF – Everyone knows what Boris is capable of, everyone knows what he can do, everyone knows what he’s done, everyone knows he’s a Top 10 Defender. So why on Earth do we keep avoiding him (year in, year out)? 101, 90 & 118 from his first three appearances this year. Boris’ ownership rate of 1.7% seems to get smaller and smaller each year, but he just keeps producing consistent SC output…….and every year we seem surprised at this 😉
James Kelly (ESS) $451 300 MID – Hindsight is a wonderful thing, isn’t it? A little bit of hindsight and we could’ve had Nuts Kelly in our midfield as the ultimate ‘stepping stone’ option for the year. Averaging 111 pts till now, Kelly has been the best top-up player that Essendon signed on. The real tragedy here isn’t that he’s owned by just 0.8%, but that he isn’t classified as DEF/MID. He’s playing that sweeper role across half-back perfectly. You can bet the ownership rate would be much higher with Dual Position status.
Tom J. Lynch (GCS) $503 200 FWD – 99, 129 & 112 to start the season…….BOOM! His performances have been overshadowed by Ablett & Hall in Supercoach, but Lynch is in red-hot form. He’s cutting an imposing figure up forward, the Suns are finally giving him some decent delivery & he’s catching everything that’s coming his way. As long as the Suns’ winning form continues, you can be sure that Lynch’s 2500 Owners will continue grinning from ear-to-ear.
Jack Martin (GCS) $415 000 FWD – Is it just me or does this kid have some similarities with Cyril? Even down to the hammy problems 😉 I thought he might still be a year or two away from SC-relevance but Martin is quickly changing my opinion there. Like Cyril, he doesn’t always need a ton of disposal to post a decent score. 97avg from the first three weeks, should also continue to score well if the Suns keep winning. His 3300 Owners will certainly hope so!
