Player Name (Club, Price, Average, Ownership)
Shannon Hurn (WCE, $505,500, 114, 1.5%)
The balding Eagle continues to defy age on the football field, having not scored under 108 in the opening three rounds of the year. Hurn started breaking out from a SuperCoach standpoint around the age you would normally expect him to start slowing down, so who knows how long he can keep this up?
Cam Guthrie (GEE, $583,700, 130, 1.4%)
A career-high average of 103 at the age of 27 last year was never going to see Guthrie start in many SuperCoach teams this season, and suggests that he is very unlikely to keep this sort of form up, but anyone who took a punt on him (or picked him in Draft) has done very well so far.
Tom Hickey (SYD, $322,200, 105, 6.1%)
A little higher than the normal Rare Gems cutoff of three percent ownership, but Hickey has been such a successful pick for his owners thus far that I thought it was worth making an exception. Currently the third-highest averaging ruck in the league, he has already made $71K, and with a BE of 4 and a Peter Wright as a likely Round 4 opponent, there’s bound to be plenty more where that came from. Well done to anyone who started him.
Lachie Fogarty (CAR, $382,600, 110, 0.4%)
The surprise packet of the Blues’ three off-season trade aquisitions, the 22-year-old ex-Cat has seen plenty of midfield time this season, and is unlikely to suddenly start receiving less, especially after his 163 point effort against the Dockers on the weekend. With a BE of -29, and Sunday’s big score to stay in his price cycle for three weeks, he has plenty of money to make, and with his role, could well end up as a keeper. The risk lies in the fact that we only have a sample size of three matches to go on. Anyone game?
