Rare Gems – Round 22

Written by The Salamander on August 12 2021

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


Brayden Maynard (COL, $529,300, 95, 3.7%)

Averaging 113 and 108 in the last three and five rounds respectively, Maynard is peaking at the right time of the year for those who held on to him after a slow start to the season. His teammate Jack Crisp is also a good option if you have an extra $47,500.

Harris Andrews (BRL, $522,600, 96, 3.7%)

Also peaking at the right time of the year, with three and five-round-averages of 115 and 111.

Sam Taylor (GWS, $478,900, 89, 0.4%)

Back into the Giants’ side after returning from an ankle injury, Taylor has picked up right where he left off, averaging 104 in that time.


Luke Parker (SYD, $577,800, 107, 3.1%)

Like the Swans, Parker has had a good season in general, but a five-round-average of 120 has him peaking at just the right time for anyone looking to get him in.

Brayden Fiorini (GCS, $503,100, 101, 1.1%)

A 125 in his second-ever game back in 2016 caught the eye of SuperCoaches everywhere, but Fiorini hasn’t quite been the premium mid we had expected since. But at nearly 24, and with three and five-round-averages of 123 and 113, that may be starting to change.


Sean Darcy (FRE, $652,900, 119, 2.8%)

With a five-round-average of 134, Darcy is the most in-form ruck in the competition, but he comes at a very steep price. Faces Nic Nat and Rowan Marshall in his final two games.

Oscar McInerney (BRL, $555,200, 92, 2.7%)

At nearly $100K cheaper than Darcy, McInerney boasts three and five-round-averages of 127 and 116, but does face Grundy and Nic Nat in his final two games for the season.

Tim English (WBD, $498,800, 92, 2.5%)

A five-round average of 111, sub-$500K price-tag, and a non-awful draw of Hawthorn (some combination of McEvoy/Ceglar/Reeves) and Scott Lycett on the run home makes English a good, budget-friendly option to consider.


Peter Wright (ESS, $468,900, 82, 1%)

Averaging 111 in his last five games, ‘Two Metre Peter’ has a favourable run home, facing the Suns and Pies in the next two weeks.

Tarryn Thomas (NTH, $490,900, 82, 1.3%)

Averaging 104 in the last five weeks, and 113 in the last three, the talented young Roo has been spending more time in the midfield lately, and it’s shown.

Dylan Moore (HAW, $457,500, 77, 0.9%)

A season average of 77 doesn’t look like much, but a five-round-average of 102 is a bit more impressive. He’s quite capable of having very down games (he scored 36 in Round 16, and 27 in Round 6), but the young forward’s scoring at least seems to be more dependent on getting the ball than goalkicking. Faces the Bulldogs and Tigers in the next two weeks, but could be worth a punt if you’re broke and desperate.

  1. With Lloyd out looking straight swap with Dawson (last trade and all I can afford) except for the above.
