Movers & Shakers – Round 11

Written by The Salamander on May 27 2021

LEGEND: Player Name (Other Position) (Club, Price, Average, 3-Round-Average, 5-Round-Average)


Rory Laird (MID) (ADE, $549,400, 107, 123, 111)

The ever-popular Laird has been good to the 55 percent of coaches who have him in their teams recently, pumping out three 120+ scores in a row over the past few weeks.

Changkuoth Jiath (HAW, $393,000, 85, 72, 73)

After a very promising start to the season. CJ has posted three bad scores out of his last four games. One of those can be put down to a head-knock, and the Blues did seem to put a bit of time into him on the weekend, so I wouldn’t write him off as a potential keeper just yet. He also now has a bye this week, meaning he’ll play in all three of the official by rounds. UPDATE: This week’s Hawthorn/Gold Coast game is back on, so ignore that last bit. He still has a handy Round 12 bye, though.


Marcus Bontempelli (WBD, $657,800, 124, 147, 135)

In arguably career-best form this season, Bontempelli hasn’t been under 100 since Round 3, and even, then that was an 82. In his last three outings he’s scored 159, 128, and 155, so he can be a great VC/C option each week.

Joel Selwood (GEE, $519,200, 108, 95, 111)

Selwood has put together a good season so far this year, to the point where he’s now in around 5 percent of teams. Scores of 88 and 66 in Rounds 8 and 9 won’t have pleased his coaches much, but those scores were bookended by 130+ performances, so there’s no reason for doom and gloom.


Sean Darcy (FRE, $549,500, 109, 124, 113)

Darcy has been in good form lately, posting just the one sub-ton since Round 3 (74 in Round 7). He faces Ladhams, English, and then the ruckless Suns before his bye, though his first week back after that sees him play Brodie Grundy. Overall, though, his draw for the rest of the year is pretty favourable, so he’s definitely one to consider if you can’t afford BroMax.

Shane Mumford (GWS ($476,200, 104, 87, 104)

After starting his year with three 100+ scores (125, 135, and 104), Mumford has since dropped off a tad, posting scores of 75 and 83 in his last two outings.


Bailey Dale (WBD, $479,900, 97, 109, 100)

Having been quietly putting together a good season this year, Dale  attracted a lot of interest from the SuperCoach community lately, and his 152-point performance on the weekend showed us all why. There’s always a risk with Bulldogs players that Mr. Magnets will, without warning, shove them in a forward pocket at some point, but overall he looks like a good option to consider in what is proving to be a difficult line this year.

Taylor Walker (ADE, $385,000, 98, 57, 72)

Scores of 42 and 29, bookended by a 103 and a 101, serve as a good reminder of just how up-and-down key forwards can be. He faces Richmond, Collingwood, and St Kilda between now and his Round 14 bye, so hopefully he can be more up than down for his 24,230 coaches during that time.


Brought anyone in just before their form took off? Or brought someone in only to have them come crashing back down to earth? Let us know in the comments below…

  1. Steven May looks to have been a trap. 3RA of only 81 and since his return from injury in round 5 has only gone over the tonne mark once (although it was a huge score of 145).

    There were people on this site who were saying to be wary a few weeks ago when May was a popular ‘fallen premium’ and one person in particular mentioned Tomlinson’s injury being bad news for May as it would affect his role in the Dees defensive structure. Looks like they were right as May is now being tasked with a heavier lockdown role on opposition talls.
