Rookie Review Round 18

Written by Big Sexy on August 4 2010

My Top Five Rookies (<$200k) of the week:

1)    R Harwood (Mid 94k) had a great first up run with 61, but then with little notice stepped it up to a massive 91 this week.  He’s in a very turbulent team, and I would expect this to work in his favor.  If your cashing in a midfielder for finals and want a good bench player, then Harwood could be your man…. Wait for teams to get announced as I’m concerned about the Black return.

2)    J Crichton (Mid 94k) seems to have taken Barlow’s sot in the team, and is 6k cheaper than Harwood.  He scored 86 on the weekend, but his score may inflated given all the Freo players scored well against the lackluster West Coast. 

3)    K Hardingham (Mid 104k) had a lower score this week with a 36, but watching the game this kid really looks like he can play.  He took some solid grabs inside fifty and was a great kick at goal… just surprised his score wasn’t higher this week.  I’d be confident he will hold his spot for another week or two at a minimum.

4)    J Gunston (Fwd 94k) played his second game and having a decent break since his first some time ago.  He scored 48, and whilst there were a few who scored better, I figured there may be a few people looking to cash in a forward and I had this guy pegged since his first game.

5)    R Hicks (Fwd/Mid 113k) or A Moore (Def/Fwd)…  with finals upon us, and trades running very thin with most us… then there is a good chance you could use a DPP (Dual Position Payer) to move between your lines to cover injuries without having to give a doughnut or use a trade you don’t have.  I personally have Rohan on my midfield bench, and despite not playing, it is great having the flexibility to swap with Goodes, O’Keefe, Higgins, Didak or Dangerfield etc.

What Rookie are you looking at bringing in for finals?  I need to cash in Silvangi to do my last midfield upgrade for finals, but Moore is about 30k too much for me to get the upgrade I want…. I got no comments last week… so gimme something 🙂

  1. Totally agree about the value of DPP’s. I covered Bartel’s injury last week with my D8 through a multi player swap

    Swapped:
    Rohan (from mid) Goodes (from fwd)

    Then to cover Goodes:
    Waite (from def) Davis (from fwd)

    Then to cover Waite:
    Strijk steppe din from D8 to play and Sheppard moved from D9 to emerg.

    Anyone not seeing the value of DPP’s has rocks in their heads!!

  2. I didn’t start using DPPs until recently, but Rohan has been my best bench cover, even though he hasn’t been on the field!!
    It meant that I was able to move Harvey into the midfield for Bartel last week, and I am keeping him there this week because JPod and Brown will both score higher than Bastinac, so I can field both of them, and Bastinac becomes bench cover for my mids with Fyfe bench cover for my forwards!!!

  3. Big Sexy keep an eye on this weeks team’s selections, there could be some rookies making their way into the side this week. For example:
    – Jake Carlisle (Ess) $94,200 (D)
    – Marcus Davies (Car) $94,200 (D)
    – Bruce Retzlaff (Brl) $94,200 (D/F)
    – Sam Reid (Syd) $94,200 (D)

    Just some food for thought, BS.

    1. Thanks PA, I think I’m going to have to break my usual rule this week and grab someone in their first game who fits the bill (and is playing)…. usually I only trade in Rooks after two matches.

        1. If Retzlaff is given a game then i can see myself trading down to him in the next couple of rounds to free up some cash.

  4. Also watched the Game on Fri night and the only thing interesting was K Hardingham & was shocked to see his SC score didnt move in the 3rd Qtr. Get on him if you need a cash out, personally I don’t 🙂

    1. How?? When Sam Wright from North got sent to hospital by Trent Cotchin a few weeks back his score crept up 3pts in each successive quarter (AND HE WAS AT THE HOSPITAL!!).

  5. 3 trades left 6,800 cash
    My Side:
    Hodge,Goddard,Enright,Waters,Shaw,Carazzo,Maguire EMG Silvagni
    Swan,Judd,Bartel,Selwood,K.Cornes,Rischetelli EMG Moles + Gysberts
    Cox,Sandilands
    Pav,O’Keefe,Betts,Pods,Brown,Stevie J,Fyfe EMG Davis

    should i trade Moles to Harwood
    then Fyfe to Riewoldt
    and later on trade Maguire to Gilbert or someone of that quality

    or hold on to the trades im in the qualifing final so i have a double chance
