Unless your name is e=mchammer (go you good thing!), by now the focus for your 2019 Supercoach campaign has switched to leagues. That’s right kids, it’s that most wonderful time of the year, Finals time! If you’ve been lucky/skilful enough to have some trades remaining, then there are a few interesting options for this first week of the big dance. For those of you in elimination finals, there may be no tomorrow, so I strongly encourage you to spend those trades as you see fit.
Here are the Fallen Premiums!
Jeremy HOWE (COL), $356 300 (-$140.9K), avg 77, BE 24 – Strange old season from the high-flying Howe, who started well but never reached the heights of previous years. Jeremy suffered a calf complaint against the Dogs in Round 10 and missed a couple of games, but has returned with scores of 90 and 100. Howe has averaged 90+ in each of his past three seasons, and is crazy cheap for someone with that history. Definitely a budget wildcard option for that D6/D7 loop.
Touk MILLER (GCS), $422 300 (-$60.1K), avg 85, BE -3 – The cornerstone of the Suns’ midfield, Touk has struggled with a lingering heel injury for most of the season, but has bounced back strongly in the past fortnight with scores of 122 and 134. Beautifully priced for a bench cover option in the midfield, a healthy Miller shapes as reliable back-up if (when) one of your guns goes down – an early holiday for Nat Fyfe, anybody???
Andrew GAFF (WCE), $512 800 (-$74.6K), avg 106, BE 69 – If you’re looking for a bonafide premium scorer for the engine room, Gaff is the man this week. The Eagles have a nice run home and are firing at the right end of the season. The ever prolific wingman is averaging 32 touches a game in 2019, and has only had two scores below 89. Scores of 114 and 124 in the past two weeks translate to a low break-even and a prime candidate for that final mid upgrade.
Eight ruckmen scored 110+ in round 19, including 148 from Fallen Premiums favourite Big Boy McEvoy ($494K, avg 97). But with no notable injuries in the ruck department this week, is anyone really planning to trade on this line?
Tom J LYNCH (RIC), $435 400 (+$9.8K), avg 70, BE 13 and Tom HAWKINS (GEE), $389 800 (-$163.1K), avg 90 BE -10 – Massive, massive weekend just gone for the two Toms, who each dobbed five majors and posted huge Supercoach tons. From a footy standpoint, I’d love to see a shootout between these two on the final Saturday in September. But until then, both men are high risk, high reward options for your forward line over the next four weeks. Both men are exceptionally mobile for their size, and are masters of the contested mark, with Lynch leading the league in that particular stat this year. Take your pick!
