My Top Five (maybe 6) Rookies (<$200k) of the week:
1) J Gysberts (Mid 129k) I called it last week, and of all cheap rookies available he is a stand-out, and this kid can really play. He was taken pick number 11 in the 2009 Nation draft…. And despite missing out on top 10 billing, he looks like he has what it takes. From what I have seen and heard he was essentially touted as the Dee’s best player in his first two matches. Gysberts scored well again this week with another 84 giving him an average of 89 after two and likely to have a massive jump in price next week.
2) D Stewart (Fwd 125k) Stewart played a few games during the NAB Cup and impressed. He’s now stung together a few games in the seniors, and with competition like Hitchcock on the sidelines for a while, he should get lots of opportunity. He scored 45 on the weekend and with lack of rookie competition scored the number 2 spot.
3) T Hunt (Def 100k) He’s cheap, he played ok and did enough to keep his spot….. He scored 50 in his first game. However, job security will be his biggest issue with half of the cats team on the sidelines for a few weeks and he might get a couple of runs, but I wouldn’t expect him to be there long term.
4) W Skipper (Ruck 167k), D Simpson (Ruck 100k) & R Stanley (Ruck 119k) So last week they scored 53, 31 & 35 respectively. None of them will set the world on fire… and surely you would only need one for your bench as a cash-in or a back-up…. In particular, if you want to cash-in Trengrove like I did last week, or you have no bench to cover for Hille. Last week I took Stanley for Trengrove and pocketed 150k, and now I’ve lost Hille….. so if you’re looking to cash-in I suggest Stanley or Simpson, if you genuinely need someone as back-up I’d get Skipper.
Tell what you think? And what Rooks your looking at trading in this week? …. Severe shortage of good rookies this week (Gysberts excluded).
