Last week’s Fallen Premiums were a bit of a mixed bag. Parker, Buddy and Silk all raised the bat, but Gawn and Rance were outplayed by their respective opponents, and Cripps sadly went down with a broken leg. Hopefully this week is better, as we look to complete our teams in the run to the finals.
Here are the Fallen Premiums from Round 16.
Kade Simpson $498,000 (-$80.7K) AVE 95, BE 93 – In the twilight of a wonderful career but still getting it done. The Blues veteran may not be quite as consistent as he once was, but he has put up a couple of 140+ games this year and overall his numbers remain very solid. A top six defender with less than 8% ownership, Simpson is a POD worthy of consideration.
Rory Laird $477,500 (-$49.3K) AVE 103, BE 93 – A couple of quiet weeks for the Crows rebounder has seen his price drop almost $90K from its season high. 119 against the Dogs was a good reminder of what he’s capable of, and he remains the second highest scoring defender of the year behind the prolific Docherty. A must-have.
Z Williams $491K; BE 181
D Roberton $457K; BE 133
T Adams $464K; BE 132
Callan Ward $547,300 (-$27.2K) AVE 97, BE 58 – Admittedly one of my favourite players, Ward has seemingly overcome an uncharacteristically slow start to 2017. After only tonning up three times in the first nine rounds, Ward has five scores of 100+ in his last six games, including a season-high 136 last start against the Hawks. Get on the Giants skipper for the Battle of the Bridge this weekend!
Nat Fyfe $483,600 (-$89.9K), AVE 101, BE 65 – It’s been a pretty rough year for the 2015 Brownlow medallist so far, but despite that he is still averaging 101, and is currently super-cheap for someone of his scoring potential. He was back to his dominating best with a BOG performance against the Roos last week. Maybe Freo and Fyfe have one last charge for the finals left in them?
J Selwood $483K; BE 165 *blue light special next week*
D Martin $597K; BE 160
Z Merrett $594K; BE 153
A Treloar $523K; BE 148
Todd Goldstein $537,700 (-$50.7K) AVE 100, BE 91 – Unfortunately, certain sections of the media seem to be on Goldy’s case at the moment. Certainly his form doesn’t stack up to previous years, but he remains elite in his position, and was one straight kick away from a massive score last weekend. Definitely a POD at this stage of the season, but Goldy is too good to count out just yet.
M Kreuzer $608K; BE 169
S Martin $490K; BE 140
Tom J. Lynch $391,800 (-$115.4K) AVE 86, BE 25 – The Suns spearhead gave us a brief glimpse of what he’s capable of in the the first quarter against the Swans, with three goals and 39 points by the first break. Rampe kept him quiet after that, but Lynch has a huge ceiling and at this price, could be a tempting F6/F7 option to finish off your forward line.
J Billings $509K; BE 158
M Wallis $435K; BE 128
J Cameron $458K; BE 127
