S Higgins – 105 pts, midfield/forward DPP, $472k. Pretty damn convincing.
B Hall – Gave you another 101 reasons to block his brain fades from your memory.
R Murphy – Tempted us all again with an 83. Just remind yourselves he only played 13 games last year and averaged 66.62.
A Cooney – If you pay $484k for a bloke you expect more than 77 pts. This is on the back of a 62, an 84 and a 60. You’d have to either be a Bulldogs supporter, a family member, or a ‘ranga to be game enough to pick him.
D Cross – Has performed pretty consistently this year but the 70 pts he had on this night was his worst game so far.
T Williams – Last 2 games have returned 63 and 55. At $228k that makes him worthy of backline consideration.
B Moles – Must be considered for your midfield bench. In order from his first game to last night’s has scored 68, 77, 45 & 50. Watch to see if he gets named for R1.
N Riewoldt – Took some amazing contested marks. 113 pts. Man love.
J Blake – Had one out of the box and scored 101. Played 22 games last year – if you’re injury averse why not consider him and his 75 average for $400k?
B Goddard – Worth every cent of his $613,600 price tag. 99.
N Dal Santo – If you’re not going to Ablettise your midfield, I reckon you’d be giving this guy some serious thought. Averages 115 but scored 95 on this occasion.
J Gram – His 85 was enough for me to make some room for him in my backline. Again.
L Montagna – Didn’t crack the ton in the preseason scoring only 84 here proving once and for all that he’s overpriced.
S Gilbert – Got posterised by BBB all night. Had 72 DT points but only 45 SC points underlining again why SC is a better comp that truly reflects the contributions of the players to team objectives.
S Fisher – Twisted a knee/ankle early in the game leading to a -8 score. Wait to see how he recovers this week before pulling the trigger on him.
