REMINDER: Players on their bye can be used as loopholes and lock out before the start of the LAST game of the round. Eg. Macrae (WBD) will be able to used a loophole right up until the start of the Dees Pies game on Monday at 3:20.
MITCHELL v Swans
- L3 v Swans: 104, 72, 114 (97 av.)
- L3 @ SCG: 88, 104, 114 (102 av.)
Not as flashy an option as the others but the bye will have done him some good and the Swans let their oppositions two primary users get 31 and 38 touches last week. A shot for 120, with Mills an option as well.
BRAYSHAW v Suns
- L3 v Suns: 78, 62, 32 (57 av.)
- L3 @ OS: 120, 121, 112 (118 av.)
Didn’t play on a full CBA load last round (9) against the Dogs, but still managed 120. Will return on ball with Fyfe gone and still playing at home: safe for 120.
STEELE v Crows
- L3 v Crows: 162, 89, 121 (124 av.)
- L3 @ CS: N/A
Put together a deadly fortnight with game high CPs, tackles and scoreboard involvements each time. Will carry again v Crows, solid for 130.
KELLY v Roos
- L3 v Roos: 89, 128, 110 (109 av.)
- L3 @ BA: 128, 110 (119 av.)
Pretty attractive option if you’ve got him: fresh off the bye, playing the Roos, shown he can handle BA. An easy 125, with a chance to have one of his annual monster scores.
GAWN v Pies
- L3 v Pies: 153, 99, 76 (109 av.)
- L3 @ SCG: 113, 116 (115 av.)
If ROB managed 27 HOs and 137 last week, then expect Gawn to do no less than 130. The 2:1 ruck split with Jackson is less than ideal, but he’s got the utility to get involved on both ends of the ground.
SATAN v Pies
- L3 v Pies: 137, 114, 96 (116 av.)
- L3 @ SCG: 87, 41 (64 av.)
Poor use (68%, 6 clangers) an 3 frees against kept Satan to a sub-ton last week, but wouldn’t worry this time around. Got Maxxy’s service and the Pies let Laird and Keays grab 40 and 33 a piece. Satan to conjure up 130+.
WHITFIELD v Roos
- L3 v Roos: 97, 81, 72 (83 av.)
- L3 @ BA: 81 (81 av.)
As tempting as Whitfield v Roos seems on paper, the reports of him jogging instead of training this week make him a steer clear this week. Ton at best.
MILLER v Freo
- L3 v Freo: 111, 90, 88 (96 av.)
- L3 @ OS: 80, 52, 54 (62 av.)
The #7 averaging MID at 117.9 for the year and now starting to gain in popularity coming off his bye. Questions over Rowell’s return and a Serong tag affecting him, but should be fine (discussed more in Trade Talk) and on track for 125.
Would have my money on Steele if I had him, so it looks like new recruit Miller into Gawn for me this week.
