The Eagles offer a great mix of premiums, break out candidates the returning star from injury and some young kids on the rise.

The Premium

Matt Priddis: For only the second time in his career Matt ended the season with an average over 100 (107.82). At $611,000 he’s nearly $90k more expensive than the next Eagle (Andrew Gaff) but if he can back up this year he’d be well worth it. Last year he was a picture of consistency, posting 16 scores of 100 or more (including 4 score of 137 or more) and only 3 times did he drop below 97. Just read that last sentence again and let it all sink in. While he may not get ‘big’ hundreds as often as many would like he’s right in the mix of consistent performers between that 95-110. He’s probably just a touch too pricey but consider him along the likes of Barlow and Pendlebury.

The Midpricer

Beau Waters:  I’ll be honest when I saw this defenders price tag at $344,000 it was just a touch higher than what I was hoping. When he gets his body right Beau can score just as well as any premium defender. In 2010 he averaged 87 from 21 games, again he went at 87 from 20 games in 2012, and although injury affected his 2013, his 7 games went at an average just under 87. So far so good this preseason as far as his body goes, and with our defenders arguably the most difficult to lock away players Waters could save Fantasy coaches some serious pain in 2015.

The Rookie

Damien Cavka:  Picked at #66 Damien’s an elite runner that’ll enjoy the spaces of Subiaco. He had a great Under-18 Championships, averaging 18 possessions, seven tackles, five marks and three clearances while in the TAC Cup he averaged 23 possessions in 11 games and kicked 17 goals for Calder Cannons. Priced at $142,000 he screams green vest potential, but is every chance of an early debut. He just broke the clubs 2km time trial record too.

The New Position

Malcolm Karpany:  This small forward has added def eligibility and at $133,000 this FWD/DEF presents some value if he can break into the best 22. He’s a damaging left boot and for his size is a great grab. His versatility could be a great asset to the Eagles so watch his preseason with interest.

The One to Watch

Nic Naitanui: Many will look to a ruck duo of cheap options of Lions ruck Berger and former #1 pick at Carlton Kruz, for me NicNat presents great value. Priced very cheap and with mentor Den Cox out of the picture he’s now has the number one mantle. He’s got some value in his price tag too at just $431,000. How does he go without Cox in the side? Great, over the past 2 years when playing without Dean he averages over 90.

  • On board the Beau-train!

  • Until the Beau-Train is derailed by an injury. How many rounds will he last?

  • I look the look of Waterman if he gets a game, could be a handy bargain.

    Dom Sheed could go bang if he gets rid of those vests

    Kane Lucas maybe as well

    Defiantly need to watch pre-season

  • I’m also keen on nicnat, think he will finally breakout now he’s not getting coxblocked.

    Any thoughts on shuey, gaff and Rosa as uniques?

    • actually jumped on Rosa last year (purely as a stepping stone after his first few games)

      was pretty solid (80s, 90s), but then got injured
      like the look of him, but will his role be reduced with the midfield depth that WC have

      • WC have no midfield depth. One of the worst midfields in the comp.

        • Get a load of this guy people.

          • Has a point tbh

          • id have to agree with him atm until they prove otherwise….I wouldn’t even call it depth yet considering the talent in it,apart from priddiss the rest have to improve bigtime and as far as ive seen karpany is nowhere near being an option,were screaming out for a good small fwd but that’s the most he has going for him so far…..he was playing reserves last yr half the time in the wafl,newman would be more likely to fill that role at this stage,,,either the person who wrote this knows something we don’t or heez way off with karpany…….last yr Tunbridge was getting thrown up when ya had to be a spaz to think he was gonna make….I hope im wrong on all this because im a wc supporter

  • I will be driving the nicnat train, all aboard.

    Priddis is another I am very keen on, very consistent and round 13 bye is a bonus.

  • which is the sub-460k first choice tagger?
    is it the Scooter type, in which case forget it
    or is it the Hutchings type, in which cas Scooter becomes an almost lock?

    • Scooter plays best as a run with where he still gets a lot of the ball. I actually went to the club for an excursion and I asked the guys there and they all said Hutchings was taking over the main tagging role so Scooter should be racking up the points. Lock and load :)

  • Reckon Lycett will prove better value than NicNat.

    • Especially when Nic Nat isn’t a DTer. SuperCoach or bust for him.

    • Almost identical averages last year, whichever way you cut it – overall (72.3 in 12 vs 72.9 in 20), in matches where WC played 3 ruckmen (46.8 vs 48.6 in 5), with just Big Cox (84.5 in 2 for Lycett vs 75.1 in 10 for NN), with each other (93 vs 92.8 in 5).

      The big difference is that Lycett has DPP for the coming season, which could be invaluable in RDT because of the reduced ruck bench.

    • An 80-85 average will justify his inclusion for me.

  • Another good summary, MJ.

    Don’t discount Colledge – 179K in Fantasy and being groomed as a ‘big-bodied mid’, which seems to be all the rage these days. He averaged 85 points in 14 WAFL games last season, which is superior to Boekhorst, who averaged 76 points in 19 games and is the better part of 70K more expensive. Compare Colledge to Freeman, who’s 5K cheaper in Fantasy, missed all of 2014 with injury and only averaged 69 points from 14 TAC Cup games in 2013. JS the issue with Brant, but players like him bring certain intangible qualities to a side so hopefully Simmo gives him a run early.
