There were plenty of bullets week that have left coaches with forced trades… some from injury, some from sheer frustration. Obviously most good teams have Gaz, who has succumbed to a season ending knee injury, leaving a gaping hole in the midfield. Here are a few blokes I think are worth considering getting in this week either for Ablett or an under-performer.
Taylor’s Swift Return
Taylor Adams (FWD/MID, $556,000) will come straight back in for the Pies this week and they have certainly missed his grunt the past two weeks. Before his suspension, he was in outstanding form with a five round average of 121 which included three massive scores over 125. In round 11 he returned from a two game break to pump out a score of 146 so he could do something similar against the Dees as he shouldn’t cop any attention from the taggers.
Bont Is Back
After suffering a mid season slump, the Bont (FWD/MID, $479,000) is back in form and provides great value for a player under 500K. He has a three round average of 108 and has not dropped under 97 in that time. He has a break-even of just 70 leading into this week’s game against the Bombers who should provide a good scoring platform.
Brendon Goddard (FWD/MID, $503,000) has put together back to back tons and his price has bottomed out after dropping 47K since the start of the year, mainly due to a one-off horrible effort in round 14 where he scored just 29. Opposition teams don’t care what Goddard is doing out there which is a good avenue for him to rack up plenty of ‘nothing’ possessions.
Weller… What do we have here?
A change of role has changed the Fantasy prospects of Mav Weller (MID, $454,000). In the last four games he has scored under 100 on just one occasion with 96 which gives him a break-even of just 55. As a midfielder you could never pick him but if he gains DPP, he may be worth a risk at that price. UPDATE: No DPP addition, so pass in Classic but consider off the Elite scrap heap as a bench option.
OK… Who to get in for Gaz
Patrick Dangerfield (MID, $593,000) is only owned by 14% of the competition despite a secondary break-out where he is averaging 110 points per game. He is in hot form with a three game average of 123 and will continue his hot form against the Swans who have been giving up huge Fantasy scores. He has a break-even of 98, which should not cause him any trouble. Having said that, there are a few unique guys you can not go wrong with including Gaff, Macrae, Hanners, Priddis and Picken to name a few.

Absolute joke! I’ll hold him but there is every chance he will undeservingly be dropped!

All good but I have Danger slightly ahead of Hanners

Even though I wrote about Goddard, I love Bart… So Bart
Good luck this week team!
