We’re keeping it simple this week. I’ve taken a look at some of the R11-bye players who are fresh from a holiday and ready to tackle the second half of the season.
Bachar Houli $480,400 (+$33,000; AVE 103.7, BE 83, PTA 96) The exquisitely bearded, Bachar Houli has put in some massive performances this season (150 & 165), jumping his average up from a historical base of mid-80s to the three figure mark. Peaking at over $550k in R7, he’s dropped a considerable amount on account of a 59 scored in R8. There was a bit of discussion on yesterday’s post regarding how Ramadan may affect his output in the next month, but I’m not as concerned as some.
Alex Rance $428,200 (-$48,000; AVE 93.7, BE 95, PTA 85.6) You won’t find many cheaper with this sort of average. Starting the year like a house on fire (112, 156), he’s only scored one ton since then, which poses a bit of a worry. Upon witnessing such a price drop, he’ll be knocking on a few SuperCoach’s doors this week.
Brodie Smith $339,800 (-$163,000; AVE 76.38, BE 118, PTA 67.8) Two bouts of concussion this season has left the young crow battered and bruised. He still has a 16 in his price cycle, so you could wait the extra game against the Hawks to get another look at him. We all know what he’s capable of at his peak, starting the year with 144 and 117.
Jordan Lewis $516,000 (-$72,200; AVE 104.57, BE 126, PTA 103.2) His most recent score is a 63 against the Saints, so he’ll be cheap for at least another two weeks. It was his only game below 29 disposals for the season, so clearly his efficiency has been down. There aren’t too many other R11 bye options on the bargain list at the moment though.
Rory Sloane $484,500 (-$132,400; AVE 102.43, BE 116, PTA 96.8) The ‘Buy of the Round’ in my book. Sloane is too much of a bargain to ignore. A few head knocks in R4 and two lots of red vests in the following two rounds has sent his price plummeting and is perfectly ripe for the picking post-bye.
Sam Jacobs $539,100 (-$81,000; AVE 102.2, BE 124, PTA 107.8) He’s been incredibly inconsistent this year. When he scores tons, he goes very large, with six tons all above 110. A great selection for your Mumford trade.
Jarryd Roughead $463,800 (-$50,900; AVE 96.2, BE 123, PTA 92.6) With just the three tons this season, Roughy has been the shadow of his former self. Dropping nearly $100k since R3, he’s ready to be picked up at a fraction of the price. You never know, – another 175 could be just around the corner.
Dayne Zorko $408,500 (-$123,400; AVE 84.2, BE 52, PTA 81.6) I sheepishly jumped on board the magician prior to R10 and was satisfied with the 95 on debut. Priced at just above 80ppg he’s sure to provide value for $$, but keep yourself prepared for that off game here or there, as he’s dished up three sub-65 matches already this year, which has kept his price down for a while now.
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
