Few players frustrated Supercoaches more last season than Brodie Smith. After a breakout season in 2014 where he averaged 94ppg and made the All-Australian Team, Smith’s 2015 season was interrupted by some nasty knocks to the head. While he did pull out a couple tons (& 97) during the SC Finals, Smith went through an extreme lean patch between Rds 4-18 where he didn’t crack 80 pts in a single game. The SCT Forum was collectively tearing their hair out with those meagre returns.
Frustration was only compounded after an analysis of his 2014 stats. The hard-running defender was League leader for long kicks in 2014 & 2nd overall for Rebound 50s and metres gained. While Smith still managed to be 5th in the League for metres gained in 2015, he had over 100 disposals less than 2014 (from one less game). Add to that an increase in clangers and it’s easy to see why the average took a sharp dip. He’s not a prolific tackler so his SC output relies heavily on his clean disposal (78.7% Disposal Effieciency in 2014, 69.8% DE in 2015).
Brodie Smith is due to play his 100th game early this year and at just 24 years of age, he should be at the peak of his powers. Many astute Supercoaches started with him last year at $510k. If he can be forgiven his form following the two early concussions in 2015, then his starting price of $415k (and Dual Position Status) presents huge value. A glance at the RMT Thread shows that many Coaches are also thinking along those lines………
*Stats from NAB1: 17 possessions at 64% Disposal Efficiency plus three clangers for 52 SC pts.
