So the Grand Final week is finally here. Lets take a moment to commemorate the achievements of our favourite Fallen Premiums of 2013. If you’ve been following my posts for the duration of the season I thank you for providing such a great audience and hope you were fortunate enough to bring in some of these guys who’ve been listed throughout the season.
So without further ado, here are the top 10 Fallen Premiums of 2013 in order of best value (Average since selection / Price Paid).
#1. R9: Matthew Kreuzer ($380,000; -$114,100; Ave 78.5, BE 56)
Average since selection: 114.11; Value: 0.30. He far surpassed my expectations of him at the time with a spectacular run of form before injury struck. Despite missing the SC Finals series so far, those who picked him up in R10 have got to pat themselves on the back. Was able to be cashed in at $566k on the eve of finals, making nearly $200k whilst scoring as good, if not better than any other ruckman in the game.
#2. R16: Tom Rockliff ($443,900; -$76,600, Ave 99.8, BE 25)
Average since selection: 131.5; Value: 0.29. If you picked him at this stage you would’ve got him at under $450k! 8 tons in a row has sent his price tag over $600k. I hope you jumped all over him at that price.
#3. R12: Joel Selwood ($492,800; -$136,700, Ave 107.2, BE 87)
Average since selection: 118.10; Value: 0.24. 8 scores of 130+ in 11 games is a remarkable return. Now priced at $651k, he makes a mockery of the price tag he was valued at in R12. The fact we were able to snap him up bye-free was timely.
#4. R10: Dane Swan ($523,300; -$152,000, Ave 111.9, BE 119)
Average since selection: 123.72; Value: 0.23. Never fails to deliver in the 2nd half of the season. This is the cheapest he reached all year, and for just over $500k, a 123 average is a lot of bang for your buck! He went 148+ four times, providing a very handy captaincy option too.
#5. R7: Matt Priddis ($451,500; -$136,800, Ave 91.4, BE 61)
Average since selection: 103.92; Value: 0.23. Hasn’t set the world on fire by any means, but I’d take a 100+ average from a guy priced at $451k if you offered it to me midseason. Expected more from him, but we can’t really complain with the 120 he served up in our Prelims.
#6. R14: Pearce Hanley ($415,200; -$70,000, Ave 96.8, BE 124)
Average since selection: 96.14; Value: 0.23. The young Irishman has disappointed owners in SC Finals, but played a run of four consecutive 100s to help you get there.
#7. R18: Nat Fyfe ($484,600; -$14,200, Ave 105.3, BE 81)
Average since selection: 110.75; Value: 0.22. Freo’s midfield was always going to be a gold mine at the end of the season with such a magnificent run of fixtures. You be content with your decision if you picked him up a month ago, especially after belting out 122 on the weekend.
#8. R5: Corey Enright ($450,200; -$52,200, Ave 83.4, BE 88)
Average since selection: 99.67; Value: 0.22. Enright started the season at $502k, but dropped more than 50 grand over the first 5 rounds of the season. This is the cheapest point he reached for the whole year, through incredible consistency. 83 was the lowest score you would have received from him had you picked him up in R6.
#9. R19: Jobe Watson ($502,200; -$145,000, Ave 111, BE 170)
Average since selection: 115.33; Value: 0.22. A classic injury affected Fallen Premium, Jobe’s collarbone break sent his price down to bargain basement levels just in time for SC Finals. Those who jumped on would have enjoyed 118, 116 and 112 throughout the finals series.
#10. R5: Heath Shaw ($484,900; Ave 90.2, BE 62, -$56,400)
Average since selection: 99.14; Value: 0.20. Has frustrated owners in recent times with a 64 and 37 thrown up in the first two weeks of finals, but delivered with a 122 in Prelim Final week. Has been one of the best defenders this year and was able to be snapped up as one of your first upgrades in R6 at $56k off his starting price.
