LEGEND: Player Name (Other Position) (Club, Price, Average, Ownership)
Christian Salem (MEL, $542,700, 106, 2%)
Unlikely to be a popular trade-in target at the moment due to May and Daniel’s current cheapness, but those who started Salem have been rewarded so far. His scoring has been a little up and down – ranging from 73 at the low end to 163 at the other – but all but two of his scores this year have been over 90, and all but three have been over 100.
David Mundy (FRE, $605,800, 117, 2.2%)
Turning 36 in July, Mundy continues to defy age. 117 is a much higher average than he’s posted in the last few years, so it remains to be seen to what extent he can keep this up, but anyone who does bring him in can do so in the knowledge that he has barely missed a game in the last decade.
Scott Lycett (PTA, $494,800, 94, 1.9%)
With a breakeven of 141, Lycett is likely to get even cheaper before he gets more expensive. He faces Grundy in Round 10, Gawn in Round 16, and Grundy again in Round 19, but otherwise has a fairy good draw as far as direct ruck match-ups go, so there are definitely worse options you could look at if you’re in need of a budget ruck.
Harry McKay (CAR, $432,000, 93, 1.9%)
Key forwards are always going to have good weeks and bad weeks. The next two weeks notwithstanding, the Blues have a fairly soft draw in the back half of the year, so coaches can expect more good weeks than bad from here on out.
