The Fallen Premiums – R21, 2015

Written by MJ on August 27 2015


Tom McDonald $445,500 (+$64,400; AVE 97.55, BE 41, PTA 89) Young Tom has regained the form we saw at the start of the season. He’s now put together 99, 99 and 130 in the first three weeks of SC Finals. Can he top it off with a winning GF performance? He has FRE & GWS in the last two, scoring 122 and 118 against them earlier this year.

Josh Gibson $427,100 (-$70,100; AVE 91.11, BE 84, PTA 85.4) A 111 left Gibson as one of the few Hawks with admirable performances on Friday night in their shock loss to Port. With Hodge out for a couple, more responsibility will fall the way of Gibson to take those intercepting marks across half-back. I’ll back him in for a good couple of games. CAR & BRI to come.

Michael Johnson $341,400 (-$127,100; AVE 79.75, BE 31, PTA 68.2) You can’t bank on more 121s coming up, but Mick J is cheap as chips on account of his -3 Q1 injury game deflating his score. MEL & PTA to finish off his H&A season, but it must be said that he didn’t perform well against these sides at the start of the year (78, 64).


Dan Hannebery $513,000 (-$29,900; AVE 112.75, BE 128, PTA 102.6) A little off the boil in recent weeks, this top 8 midfielder has now dropped in value significantly. Six times this year he has gone over 130 and that could be a match winner. STK and GC to round out his season, so you’d think plenty of points would be on offer and a good chance to regain some form heading into the AFL Finals.

Callan Ward $473,300 (-$132,700; AVE 105.80, BE 80, PTA 94.6) Two hundreds in a row has put to rest a string of sub-par games for the Giants’ skipper. He’s enjoyed beating up on the weaker sides this year, polling four of his five 120+ scores against sides in the bottom 6. CAR & MEL gives him a good chance of continuing the trend.

Dyson Heppell $483,700 (-$88,100; AVE 104.90, BE 65, PTA 96.6) Like Ward, he’s posted back-to-back hundreds again and faces RIC and COL to finish a season to forget for the Dons. He scored 103 and 150 against these two sides earlier this year.


Matthew Kreuzer $484,700 (+$113,800; AVE 93.36, BE 45, PTA 96.8) He’s been in sensational form, yet still hasn’t knocked on the door of the $500k club. Only Sandilands, Jacobs and Goldstein have been better in the last three weeks. GWS and HAW to come.


Jack Gunston $438,600 (-$47,000; AVE 92.75, BE 66, PTA 87.6) An extremely uncharacteristic 39 sent his prize south dramatically, but has steadied since then with 94 and 104. He’s only gone below 86 four times from 20 games this year. His best score came against the Blues, with a 165. BRI & CAR to come.

Jack Riewoldt $393,900 (-$56,900; AVE 94.40, BE 64, PTA 78.6) Jumping Jack has been quiet of late, hence the price drop down to sub-$400k for the first time this season. If you’re desperate for someone super cheap, he could be the man with a game against the struggling Bombers on Saturday night. ESS, NTH to come.

  1. Hey guys,

    Need your input on this!

    I have 1 trade left and I need to ditch Hodge..

    T/U: Houli vs ESS – less time spent in the Richmond back line due to dominance of lacking Bombers attack.. will this mean less touches and opportunities for Bachar or give him the opportunity to flog the Bombers and score big?

    T/D: Picken vs NTH – a more competitive scenario for a back line player as NTH will present a more attacking presence to WBD.. garnering more opportunity for Picken to get to work and score big..

    Stuck on this trade!


  2. Your help is much appreciated!

    1 trade left to ditch Fyfe:
    MID: Pendlebury, Danger, Priddis, Hanners, B Goddard, J Lewis, Rocky

    Fyfe out for –
    T/U: Sloane vs WCE
    T/D: Deledio vs ESS

    Comment for other..

    My opponent has Deledio so I’m thinking going Sloane as a POD.
