LEGEND: Player Name (Other Position) (Club, Price, Average, 3-Round-Average, 5-Round-Average)
Jack Crisp (COL, $536,500, 102, 113, 112)
Hasn’t missed a game since 2014, and hasn’t been under 100 since Round 7. He does have a bye next week, but if you’re looking for a reliable defender to get you through the back half of the season, Crisp is one of the best options.
Jordan Ridley (ESS, $461,700, 99, 83, 88)
In the six weeks since he’s come back from injury, Ridley has had two 100+ scores bookended by two scores in the 80s at one end, and an 8x and 6x at the other. Still, we’ve seen what he’s capable of at his best, so for $461,700 he could be worth a look after he’s had his bye this week.
Touk Miller (GCS, $616,000, 118, 134, 132)
With his bye done and dusted, is it time for more of us to join the 1.5 percent of coaches who have Miller in their teams? He hasn’t been under 115 in his last five games, and has posted three captaincy-worthy scores of 146, 133, and 153 during that time.
Hugh McCluggage (BRL, $552,900, 105, 92, 106)
Heads into his bye with two sub-tons in a row, after having scored seven consecutive 100+ scores prior to that, including four between 127 and 140. It still remains to be seen how Lachie Neale’s return will affect his scoring longer-term.
Nic Naitanui (WCE, $609,500, 113, 135, 127)
It’s hard to recommend him from a SuperCoach standpoint due to his injury history, but when he’s on the park, Nic Nat is one of the best rucks in the AFL, and his scoring reflects that.
Marc Pittonet (CAR, $415,400, 83, 75, 80)
Not really relevant in SuperCoach outside of Draft, but he’s had a quiet couple of weeks, scoring 73 and 52, after he’d had a good couple of weeks, including an impressive 100 against Max Gawn back in Round 9.
Shai Bolton (MID) (RIC, $523,000, 97, 110, 110)
After a couple of injury-enforced weeks on the sidelines, Bolton has picked up right where he left off, with scores of 119 and 102 in the last two weeks. Has the now very awkward Round 14 bye, but still looks like one of the better options in what is proving to be a very challenging line this season.
Harry McKay (CAR, $341,000, 77, 41, 55)
This time five weeks ago, McKay was averaging 93. He’s now averaging 77. Ouch. Although his concussion-induced 5 on the weekend can be written off as a one-off, his previous four scores before that were 79, 39, 75, and 77, with his last good score (99) having come back in Round 7. The Blues have a fairly soft draw in the back half of the year, so at $341,000 he could potentially be worth a look after his bye.
