Certain players have certain reputations, especially amongst Supercoaches……..Daniel Wells is one of them. The North Melbourne veteran was taken at Pick 2 (behind Goddard) in the 2002 Draft which also contained such names as McVeigh, Simpson, Watson, Malceski and Tim Walsh (WHO??!! No.4 Pick, only played one game over three seasons for the Dogs…….look it up, people!).
Unfortunately for Wellsy, he appears on the ‘Higgins’ List of many Supercoaches. Some citing a frustrating lack of consistency despite his obvious talents, others noting a bad run with injuries. Over his thirteen seasons at AFL level Wells has played 224 games (24 more than Watson, 32 more than Malceski & only 18 less than Simpson). His 2015 season was a write-off after he sustained an achilles injury against Brisbane in Rd2. 2014 was also ruined after Drew Petrie stood on Wells’ foot during training, sidelining him for half the season. If you can get past those two mishaps, then his record doesn’t look so bad……..one might even label him ‘durable’ (dare I say it!). From his first eleven seasons, he played over eighteen games a total of ten times.
We’ve all seen Wellsy play. We know about the silky skills, the flashy highlights reel, the freaky goals, the two Syd Barker Medals (Nth B&F in 2011 & 2013)………I don’t need to harp on too much about all that. His best SC season came in 2011 where he managed a 104ppg average (23 disposals per game). Wells has reached an 88+ average in eight seasons so far.
After his effort on the weekend, four goals and best-on-ground during the intra-club match, Wells has got the Supercoach World buzzing. Having also shed 6kgs, he’s stripping fitter than ever before.
The SC Gods have bestowed many bargains upon us this season. In comparison to many rookie-/mid-priced players, Wells already has the runs on the board. He is also a walk-up start for the Kangaroos’ best 22 (if fit, of course), has dual-position status and a very reasonable starting price………. it’s easy to see why he’s frequently appearing in the RMT Thread. If he holds up in the NAB Challenge, he might also feature heavily in Father Dougal’s Cow Talk Thread up until the byes.
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
