    I have had Brad Hill as a target all week to hit some scores while he’s rolling, and make some $, but now Stephen Hill is back. How does everyone that affect Brad’s midfield time and scoring?

        thanks. same question there though, does S Hill coming back affect his scoring/midfield time? I think i’m safer staying away, appreciate it though :)

          Walters can’t go backwards in price from here, so low risk high reward. Trying to understand Lyon is like watching Memento…

      May 20, 2017 at 10:18 am

      Lloyd hasn’t played yet, he has been super solid and super consistent this year. There is still an element of risk to having Scott Selwood in, the last year he averaged over 100 was way back in 2013. in 2015 he averaged 58.8.

      Sure he looked like 2013 Scott Selwood, but it’s only one game

      Bringing in Scott Selwood without having a look at him is GUTSY. He averaged 79.6 last year, but only from 3 games. The year before 58.8 from 12 games. The year before that 81.

      So the last year he scored like a premium was way back in 2013

    I’m not convinced on Mitch Wallis, highest ever average of 89, and as good as he looked last night, not enough to convince me that he is worth it. At his price I feel trading him in he needs to be a keeper. For this I feel he needs to average 95+ He may be capable of it, but he hasn’t done it before
