Rookie Review Round 4

Written by Big Sexy on April 20 2010

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

1)    J “The fairytale” Podsiadly (Fwd 83k) I can’t believe this bloke, rookie at age 28… ave = 99 after 2, so huge cash jump next week…. I’ve seen both of his games and his NAB Cup.  His NAB Cup game was rubbish, and why I didn’t pick him….. but he has been awesome taking contested marks, a great lead-up forward and kicking goals (even missed a few).  Just because of Mooney/Hawkins I may draft Rockliff this week instead…. But I take back everything I said about this bloke.  Looks the Goodes J

2)    T Rockliff (Fwd 109k) I’ve had my eye on Rockliff since some awesome NAB cup scores, and would have already had him if was named in Rnd 1.  An Ave of 87, and running through the midfield…. It’s out of Rockliff and Podsiadly for my trades this week…. Will wait for the teams, but leaning towards Rockliff for longevity

3)    C Schmidt (Def 100k)  If you don’t have Maguire/Waters/Silvangi in your backline like most of us, or looking to cash in one of them.  This is your man with and Ave of 85 in a very average team.  I will prob leave my backline alone as I think I can squeeze some more cash out of my existing blokes.

4)    K Lucas (Mid 124k)  Despite the fact he plays for the Blues, he’s not a complete retard… right Motts?  He seems to move well and gets plenty of it. He had a good game on the weekend with 83, and after 2, if it’s time to  cash in a midfielder, he’s your man.

5)    R Bail (Mid 190k) Flying under the radar, Bail has an Ave of 84…. And plenty of cash coming his way.  I would have rated him higher, except he is already 190k, and the Dee’s have just come off their only two wins in the last decade, so playing with a group of spastics will not help him going forward, but worth a punt.

Tell what you think?  And what Rooks are you looking at trading in this week?

Here’s the raw data… so make up your own mind  (I’ve left in guys who jumped over $200k this week)

    1. I know Shuey was listed with a Knee when withdrawal, but he wasn’t on the teams injured list during lat week…. so I’m hoping it’s just knee ‘soreness’, as he’s on my bench along with Banner who was dropped last week, but will hopefully be back this week after Port were bent over by the cats.

  2. J Podsiadly is a winner mate …. picked him up and happy i did. You can’t ask any more than an average of 99 from a bloke that cost $83,400!

    1. duck im thinking about keeping pods on the field and maybe downgrading ziebell to rockliff, who is averaging way more, what do u think? i will have heaps of money left over for future upgrades, and i think rockliff will be better than ziebell anyways. rocky will be on my bench and will have pods on the field. is this too risky?

      1. Yeah Cam aka Prince, I was thinking the same thing downgrading one of my mid-price forwards for either JPOD or Rocky and with the extra cash upgrading shuey in the midfield with a premium.

          1. Hey Mike, how many trades do you have left? You might want to get rid of Relton for the JPOD OR Rocky, just a thought Buddy.

          2. Yup. That’s at the top of my to-do-list come Friday. It’s a flip of the coin decision between Lobster and Pods . . . both should be safe bets though imo.
            I’ve used four trades and happy enough with where I’m at so far.

          3. If that’s the paisley apron you wear Mikey, I’m happy for your sake that you don’t leave the house in it.

          4. Understood. I was just impressed by the number of results I got grom a Google image search on ‘paisley apron’.

  3. Pods was my first player picked this season. Like Duck said, so cheap and such good value. Surely Bomber must keep him in the team and maybe use Mooney or Hawkins in other ways.

    1. Cats might need to fit Scarlett back in the week, who do we think is going out…. Maybe Lonergan, but he’s been a rock down back with Harry….. so if no injuries, lonergan or pods may get squeezed.

      1. The guy in the gun down the highway is The Tomahawk, wouldn’t surprise me if he gets dropped for Scars this week.

  4. gotta give a shout out to barlow and silvagni. i know its rookies of the week but barlow still got an 83 whilst copping a hard tag by one of the best. feel weve set the bar pretty high for this bloke already. the star of the SC season so far without doubt. silvagni has been consistently good.
    PS. shuey is gonna be quite a few weeks. word is he has a fractured kneecap.

      1. No Probs Mr Magoo, Barlow and Silvangi have been the standouts in their respective positions…… That’s exactly why they’re dropping off the list…. worth too much…. which is awesome for anyone who has them.

        0

        0
  5. Hey guys, have had R Henderson sitting on an ice cold bench since start of season. Does anyone know if he is a chance? Thinking i will need to trade him out or should i hold on?

    0

    0
  6. Hey Motts, just wondering if you had heard anything about Robbie Hicks from Richmond at all? Is he likely to get a game this year? Or is he too similiar to Nahas as a small forward type?

    Just wondering as I would like to take advantage of the DPP rule.

    Alternatively, is Gary Rohan looking like a good prospect? Or is he still one to hold off one? You would think he might get a chance given that McGlynn is out injured for 3 weeks.

    Your thoughts?

  7. I have Banner and want to replace him with Howlett . What do you think Howlett’s chances of playing 50%+ of the rest of the season are as I feel Banner has not a lot of chances to play much more , would you agree with that ?. This is for a midfield bench player.

  8. g’day all. i have decided that this week i want to trade in the great judd-a-naught. to do so, i reckon i am going to downgrade one rook and upgrade another. out of my following midfield rooks, who would you recommend burning and upgrading ~ barlow, trengove or martin?

    i have also been researching but cannot find much info. could anyone suggest who would be a cheap upcoming replacement rookie around the $83k mark that has yet to play.

  9. “K Lucas (Mid 124k) Despite the fact he plays for the Blues, he’s not a complete retard… right Motts? ”

    How’d the boys do yesterday against your Cats, Big Sexy? If The Baggers are “complete retards” what exactly does that make Geelong right now?
