Mid-Pricers Review – Round 11

Written by Hot Sauce on June 4 2019

Get Them In!

Players your team needs

The all-important bye-rounds are here, and hopefully you have your team in position to start thinking about your upgrade targets from next week. Players from the Dons, Dockers, Hawks, Power, Saints and Doggies would be the most important to consider next week, but this week will be a final look across all mid-pricers.

Both Harris Andrews and Jason Johannisen are screaming out to be your POD defenders with both averaging 100+ over the past 5 weeks. At $455k and $476k respectively, both are set for considerable price increases.

There isn’t any midfield mid-pricers that are screaming out to be picked, but there are plenty doing a great job that are one big score from potentially joining this list.

Up forward however, there seems to be plenty of players just waiting to be scooped up performing above their price point. Obviously, Patrick Dangerfield must be brought into your team and at $499k he just simply can’t be passed up on. Joining Danger are a bunch of players who are surprisingly all currently top 10 forwards – Caleb DanielRowan MarshallJeremy Cameron and Michael Walters. All are in great form and can definitely be added to your teams, while I would also consider Rory LobbTom Lynch and Jordan DeGoey.

  1. Patrick Dangerfield (Fwd/Mid; $499,200; and 64.9% ownership)
  2. Michael Walters (Fwd/Mid; $494,400; and 6.9%)
  3. Jason Johannisen (Def; $476,700; and 0.5%)

Pass Mark

If you have them, keep them.

The POD’s that are continuing their stellar run of form include Jeremy FinlaysonLachie WellerDan HoustonHeath ShawMichael HurleyWayne MileraJacob HopperDyson HeppellShaun HigginsDion PrestiaMitch RobinsonDarcy Parish and Robbie Gray. All are still providing plenty of value for their coaches and could end up as potential keepers.

Chopping Block

Joining ‘Bite the Bullet’ and ‘Chopping Block’ together – a lot of tough calls.


No big names to dump this week besides lowly picked players like Jack BowesJamie Macmillan and Jasper Pittard but there are plenty of players that are getting very close to being culled from many teams.

Jack Steele has disappointed all of his owners failing to score a 100+ since round 5 and averaging a lowly 87.4 over the last 5 weeks. He has dropped ~$50k already and set it drop more with a breakeven of 111. The clock is ticking on this Saint as it is with another in Jack Billings. Although Billings has held his price from the start of the season, that will change shortly with a current breakeven of 133, but it is more the realisation that Billings will struggle to keep up with the current top 10 forwards and is leaking points each week.

Good luck coaches and let me know your thoughts.

  1. Interestingly I don’t have any of the PODs listed .. I guess that is why they are PODs, most of us don’t.

    Really keen on JJ and Andrews but will have to pass as I have Williams and Crisp and I don’t have Hurn or Lloyd. LAird is also a good price at the moment.
    I have 2 FWD spots to fill – one or maybe the two will come from Walters, Marshall and Daniel. I already have Kelly, Danger, Dunkley and Cameron – the process of identifying the final FWD list this year is aligned to our rookies – a very slow burn.
    Decisions, decisions, decisions ..


  2. Still backing Steele in, hoping he has a second half of the season like he did last year. Plus, I unfortunately have more important issues to fix.


  3. Love a good POD, for D6 who would you go?

    TU – Harris Andrews – this week
    TD – Jason Johannisen – next week
