Rare Gems – Round 20

Written by The Salamander on July 29 2021

LEGEND: Player Name (Other Position) (Club, Price, Average, Ownership)


Jacob Weitering (CAR, $505,300, 93, 2.3%)

His five-round-average of 110 may be more of a reflection on the Blues’ form than his own, but there’s no denying the reigning Carlton Best & Fairest has (mostly) held up well in that time. The lack of pressure further up the ground won’t make his life easy, but with most of his teammates looking like they’ve mentally checked out for the year, he should see plenty of the ball in his part of the ground over the next few weeks.


Luke Parker (SYD, $572,000, 106, 2.8%)

With a three-round-average of 127 and a five-round-average of 118, Parker has been in terrific form lately, posting just three sub-tons (all in the 80s or 90s) since Round 8.


Scott Lycett (PTA, $489,400, 96, 1.2%)

With his matchups against Gawn and Grundy now behind him, Lycett has a pretty friendly run home, facing Mumford/Flynn, ROB, De Koning, and English between now and Round 23.


Lance Franklin (SYD, $428,900, 85, 2.7%)

Just 17 kicks away from 1,000 career goals – will he get there before the end of the home-and-away season? The Swans being finals-bound will give them a bit more breathing room on that front, but they’ll be keen to help him get there. Scores of 130, 113, and 105, as well as 42 and 70, in his last five games serve as a reminder of what he’s capable of putting out – both the good and bad. He has a reasonably favourable run home of Essendon, St Kilda, North Melbourne, and Gold Coast, so for the price it could be worth backing him in to have a good month.

  1. I think Parker is a good choice given his form and decent run home, especially if you can’t afford anyone over 600k
