Michael Hibberd $437K (+$34.9K) AVE 98.6, BE 35 – His five games upon return from injury have seen three scores in the realm of 110+, providing us with plenty to like about Hibberd as a selection. He has proved (in a relatively small sample size, mind you) that he has still got what it takes to average at least in the mid-90s, as he did in 2013-14 at the Bombers. A meager 56 to the Hawks has otherwise halted what would have been a barnstorming run up to $500K. Last chance to get him at the current price of $437K.
Jeremy Howe $453K (-$47.5K) AVE 93.8, BE 71 – His disposal numbers were down in R6 & R7, which has sunk his price to a more reasonable level for this high flying defender. Was in sensational nick last week with 25 touches and 13 marks across half back. It’s simply a joy to watch this man play footy. Buy.
Simpson $503K, BE 138
Shaw $468K, 126
Dustin Martin $526K (-$62.0K) AVE 111.9, BE 60 – Four games in succession under 100 halted what was a brilliant start to his 2017 campaign. An underrated string to Dusty’s bow is his ability to run out full seasons, missing just four games since debut in R1 2010. 23 kicks from his 35 disposals helped Martin on his way to 144 points (which would’ve been bigger if he’d nailed the match winning goal in the last quarter, which he missed!).
Dayne Zorko $534K (-$58.2K) AVE 108.0, BE 73 – It’s guaranteed this man will fly under the radar all season, despite his ability to keep on racking up consistent scores. R6 and R7 are his only games below 109 this year, which has sent his price south, but his most recent hauls have been 119 and 123. Currently the 18th best SC player for total points in 2017.
Josh P. Kennedy $524K (-$92.9K) AVE 104.2, BE 71 – With just the two massive scores this year, Kennedy has been one of many underperforming Swans. He has bounced recently, with 136 and 102 in the last fortnight. It would still be a bold move to grab him over other in-form midfielders, but could very well pay off handsomely if we see his mean revert to the average of past seasons.
Ablett $611K, BE 194
Gray $487K, BE 179
Bontempelli $588K, BE 165
Sloane $574K, BE 150
Shane Mumford $526K (-$9.7K) AVE 106.3, BE 87 – Two off weeks has brought his price back down to an undervalued level. Showing better season form than Todd Goldstein* for a similar price. Not many players can score 135 with just 1 kick and 4 handballs (a feat Mummy achieved against the Tigers last week). Imagine if he’d got his hands on the leather a bit more!
*Big Todd also has to get a mention for his recent run of form that has finally seen him justified as a Fallen Premium regular in 2017. Good on ya Todd!
None to note
Taylor Walker $408K (-$36K) AVE 89.6, BE 68 – Bit of a speculative option with quality forwards a little harder to come by this season. The big Texan averaged 99.6 in 2012, but that was a long time ago. Just wanted to alert you to the fact that he scored 24 three weeks ago, which has crashed his price to a value around $50K less than what his average suggests he should be.
Lynch $491K, BE 153
Yeo $548K, BE 144
Franklin $503K, BE 139
