With prices yet to change, today I’ve decided to fine tune our focus to those players who started the year at over $550k and are going to shed significant amounts off their price tags after Round 3. For one reason or another, these guys have started 2016 averaging under 100 points per game across their first two fixtures. Remember, these are our stars of last season, the best scoring players in 2015, and most have no reason to suggest they’ll continue scoring at such subdued levels.
Smart SuperCoaches don’t chase last week’s points, they chase tomorrow’s points, at cheaper than last week’s price.
No doubt you have a few of the following list. Now is not necessarily time to panic and rage trade them out. If you thought they were good enough to have in your team for 2016 two weeks ago, you need a significant reason to say something has fundamentally changed about this player that will mean they don’t average at least 100 points per game from this point forward (eg. seemingly permanent positional change). We don’t have enough trades for the year to be switching between premiums based on their last couple of performances. Having said that, I know many will be forced to sacrifice one of these guns to get a ‘must-have’, which is reasonable under some circumstances. Rest assured though, the vast majority of these guys will bounce back sooner rather than later and will be on Schwarzwalder’s Flavour of the Week list shortly.
