Boss man has taken me aside after my poor start to the 2019 SuperCoach season and is sending me to the reserves for the next 3 weeks (not really) and the Rookie Review duties have been handed over to the current ranked 282 SuperCoacher out there in Chillo for the time being.
Mrs Huttabito wants my full undivided attention on our honeymoon she is taking me to remote Africa with little to no internet (really). Enjoy your time with Chillo and Chillo, enjoy writing – thanks a bunch!

Melbourne JUST got over the line against Gold Coast, but Hore, who has been a rookie revelation in defence after his recall scored another solid 89 points this week from 19 disposals (15 kicks) at 57% DE to go with 4 marks, 2 tackles, 5 1%ers and a goal. Lockhart was enjoying the space he was given to finish with a second team high 9 marks to go with 19 disposals (9 kicks) and 74 points.
Clark was moved on by many this week, including by yours truly, but finished with his season high score of 81 points due to 17 disposals (14 kicks), 7 marks, 4 tackles, 4 1%ers and 2 goals buying himself a few more weeks of cash generation.
Other than Young scoring a 30, you can’t be too displeased with the defence rookie this week as all others scored not to dissimilar to their current averages. Those who held onto Scrimshaw may feel a little hard done by after his day was cut short on 63 points from 44% game time after a concussion.
Keilty played his second game but another low score (35) means he is very irrelevant as this current stage of the season.
Goodbye for now: It’s that time of year where many rookies have hit their peak price point and breakeven has moved up close to their average. Rozee, Duursma, Wilkie, Collins and Scrimshaw (due to the concussion) have all reached this point and coaches are free to do as they will. Unlikley to change in price at all so wait for a decent downgrade/upgrade target and they are still scoring quite well.
Geelong late change:
OUT Menegola, IN J.Selwood
Nek minute (literally)
OUT J.Selwood, IN Constable
Read the late team sheets. Those that were by their phones and were able to react and place him on the field were rewarded with a 92 point game due ot 27 disposals (11 kicks), 10 marks and 3 tackles. Been moved on by a few coaches recently due to his resting, return and then omitting 3 weeks apart. Who knows where he sits with J.Selwood and Menegola waiting to return but if he plays, he will score well and continue making moolah.
Thomas continues to churn out good scores only after price changes and this time scored 79 points against Geelong. He finished up with 17 disposals (3 kicks), 1 mark, 5 tackles and a goal and looks set to rise $200k on his starting price in the next fortnight.
Ross and Atkins both suffered injuries this week which would have cause agony for many coaches – I personally fielded Ross and did have Atkins on field until Constable was a late inclusion. Ross had his ankle caught under a Fyfe tackle in the opening 10 minutes of the game and finished on 15 points while Atkins struggle with a hamstring tweak but tried his best to push though it to no avail and finished on 12 points himself. With these in their price cycle, they will halt over the next fornight which is a shame as they both looked like they would both get over $300k by the end of next week.
Stocker played his second game this weekend and put up a better performance than his debut. Up against last years runners up he had 16 disposals (10 kicks) at an impressive 88% DE to go with 3 marks, 3 tackles, 2 1%ers and a goal assist. That said, 6 clangers, 4 being free kicks against held him to 57 points for the afternoon and now heads into next week on the bubble.
Goodbye for now: Like above, some rookies are just done. Walsh has slowed down the last 3 weeks and averaged 79 over this time and coaches can make up their mind to hold to the bye or not. GWS this weekend but Carltons draw opens up again afterwards. Other top 10 pick in B.Smith has also reached his peak without another solid game averaging 71.4 over the first 8 rounds and can be cashed out for $230k to a lower priced rookie.
No studs, no newbies (although Clarke did pop his bubble) just O’Brien being a dud on 66 points which is his lowest for the year. Can’t complain, what a cash cow he has been for 15% of coaches. 2 more weeks and I reckon he will be good to be downgraded when he faces Gawn.
|Drew (MID)||PTA||$321,800 (-0.6k)||59||73.1||59|
|Setterfield (MID)||CAR||$213,000 (+$19.4k)||67||55.4||5|
It was painful watching the WA boy Bolton run around and hand it to the Dockers on Sunday and fighting for his spot in Richmonds 22, he was just too pacy for the abundance of tall defenders kicking a game high 4 goals. 16 disposals (10 kicks), 2 marks, 7 tackles, 3 1%ers and 126 SuperCoach points will see him in the seniors for at least another week.
Miers once again gets his name as a stud for his handful of owners. 80 points against North Melbourne sees his as the money profitable forward to date.
Setterfield finally got a recall to seniors after having to come back through the VFL after his 2 game suspension earlier this year. Traded out by 30k coaches and held by 100k over this time, he repaid the faith with 15 disposals (4 kicks) at 87% DE, 1 mark, 5 tackles and a couple of 1%ers for 67 points.
Parker had a season low 25 points against Eagles and struggled to get his hands on the ball finding it just the 8 times and was hurt with just the 2 contested possessions and 2 clangers. His time is nearing an end without another score in the 70/80s so if you own him, starting thinking about the future.
The Ham smells a little off and a 41 point game against Sydney after being recalled from a 44 against North in Rd5 means he is probably on very few radars this year and probably for the best – rookie we target now we want in our teams all the way through to the byes.
Taylor made his senior debut on the weekend but thankfully we get another look as very few will be jumping on after a 31 point game.
